CBD for healing everything?
Not quite…. but it might be proved some day to be pretty close to doing just that…. I am including Hemp and Marijuana sources of CBD. Fans of Cannabis get a little excited about this plant, especially if they have experienced healing or pain relief from using it.
Sometimes people get a little carried away, and have such glowing opinions that you might get the impression that CBD for healing is the end all. Cannabis for the masses, cannabis for healing everything! I would never say this, because no plant can do everything.
To connect with cannabis enthusiasts, if you have a Facebook account and know your way around with Facebook, you can join some groups that are either Marijuana or Hemp focused. There are thousands of members there online, testifying how the plants of Hemp and Marijuana have saved their lives or those of their loved ones.
Most of these groups are either private, meaning you have to be invited by a member, or are closed groups that you can apply to. I am a member of a few of these groups.
These groups have to be a bit selective about who can join, to weed out the spammers and those that just want to start trouble. The groups that I am a part of, have been created by genuine caring people who just want to help others to heal, as they themselves have been healed. Lots of skeptics out there.
I am one of those genuine and caring people that has experienced healing through the use of CBD oils, both Hemp and Marijuana sources.
I want to help you as well, if you are willing to be open minded. Just type in cannabis or other keywords related to cannabis or hemp or marijuana in the Facebook search bar and you will find these groups.
Regarding Plants, there are many herbs (plants) that can heal cancer
through their leaves, fruit, seeds or roots. Cannabis, both Hemp and Marijuana, are only one class of plant that has super healing powers.
Personally, I have used a Black seed paste to completely cause a cancerous mole to disappear from my husband’s back.
I have used Turmeric paste taken internally, to heal a family member who was developing some very ominous looking patches of cancerous lesions all over his chest.
I have given an Herb called Chanca Piedra, to dissolve and eliminate kidney stones in some one I know, who is prone to stones. The Chanca Piedra, taken as a strong tea, works very quickly to dissolve and flush out kidney stones. I also used Chanca Piedra to save a horse’s life, who was suffering terribly from kidney stones, the Vet did not have any options other than surgery.
I supported another family member to take strong doses of Graviola, when she developed some suspicious lumps in her one breast. Appointments take awhile to take place, and by the time her cancer specialist saw her, the lumps had disappeared.These are only a small sample of plants that have amazing healing abilities.
Cannabis has been kept from the public
because the powers that be, decided that you should not be allowed to heal yourself. After all, the medical system makes a LOT of money off of your illnesses… the pharmeceutical companies that make the various drugs, the research labs that create them and the doctors that love to prescribe them.
I never ever support the cancer research societies, as their research is drug focused. They are not interested in a plant that could cure an illness. Shocking but true… why?
The owners of Research Labs are only interested if they can isolate a particular component of a plant that they can patent for the purposes of claiming it.
A plant cannot be patented, unless it is a GMO plant that a research lab has created. Ever wonder why all those dollars going into cancer research and other diseases never seem to make any headway?
The conventional treatments for cancer are still chemicals that destroy cancer cells along with all the healthy cells and they have the nerve to call this ‘chemotherapy’. There is no therapy there. Radiation is still being used to burn out cancer cells. Surgery is still used to cut out all the cancerous parts that can be cut out. Nothing new under the sun there.
In the mean while, many healing plants are waiting to be used,
in far less invasive ways. Why are so many people still turning to conventional chemo therapy, instead of a collection of powerful plants under the skills of an herbalist or herb knowledable physician? FEAR, plain and simple.
Patients are told by their doctors that herbs are useless and are made to feel stupid for even suggesting it. I am thankful that my own Doctor is open minded and has never made me feel stupid.
In fact he writes down every single thing I do regarding my health, typing as I talk. He asks questions of me during this process and afterwards. I admire him greatly but as most doctors today, he turns to the infamous three (antibiotics, steroids and NSAIDs).
Healing plants are never mentioned because to do so would bring the medical establishment down on his head. Neither is focusing on healthy eating, no doctor has ever asked me what my diet looks like. It’s crazy that a patient is not directed to healing foods, when foods are the building blocks of good health!
Regarding the healing plant Cannabis, some people these days are nearly apoplectic with indignation regarding the legalization of cannabis, including hemp. They view cannabis as a ‘gateway’ drug to other extremely damaging drugs like heroin and cocaine. Not true by the way. It’s what we have all been told over and over and it’s called brain washing.
We should proclaim white processed sugar as an illegal substance, because it is the prime cause of diabetes that is running rampant in the developed world. Sugar leads to diabetes, leads to obesity, leads to inflammation (Arthritis)…. it’s the ‘gateway’ to disease. Yet… I don’t hear anyone declaring that sugar should be outlawed?
These days CBD has the attention of every one
interested in healing. CBD oil is a concentrated extraction from Marijuana or Hemp flowers. It is not the same as a product known as Hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is not CBD oil, as it is pressed oils from the SEEDS of the Hemp plant and has no appreciable amounts of any cannabinoids.
Hemp seed oil is simply a nice healthy salad oil, like Olive oil and others. Some simply call it Hemp Oil too. Certainly healthy to eat but it is not a strong medicine like products from the flowers.
CBD oil is extracted from the FLOWERS (buds) of the cannabis plant, either Marijuana or Hemp. It is further refined to the point that it contains only the CBD, not the other cannabiniods. Full spectrum CBD oil, is a little different in that the WHOLE plant along with the FLOWERS (buds) are pressed for the plant oils.
The result is a product that has CBD and other terpenes and cannabinoids from the plant. The result is a lighter flavoured concentrate, often further diluted with Hemp oil or other oils.
I personally use a Health Canada lab tested Full Spectrum CBD concentrate made from Hemp.
It has a strong bitter taste, plain and simple but it works! I only use a small dab on the tip of a finger,once a day. When I forget to take it or simply run out of product for a few days, the arthritis in my knees comes back. The damage in my knees is permanent, no plant or drug can correct it, however the inflammation that develops can be controlled and mostly vanquished. Arthritis is just a word. A word the medical community has attached to chronic inflammation.
I also have trouble sleeping deeply most nights, and have recently discovered that if I take it just before bed, I actually sleep much better. My mother gave me that idea (she uses the 10% potency). She told me that taking it before falling asleep, allowed her to sleep deeply until about 5 am. Normally she would be tossing and turning with discomfort from her arthritis for most of the night.
For myself, after a more physically active day and my muscles are complaining, I take one tiny drop in the morning, and then again another just before bed.I use one company in particular for the CBD concentrate from Coast to Coast. They have varying concentrations, that start from 10% CBD concentration to higher amounts.
I started with the weakest concentration at 10% (100 mg) and had good results but when they were out of stock, I ordered the 161 mg which is 16.1% CBD.I prefer this stronger product as it is thicker, easier to get a more exact dose and I only need one dose per day.
One syringe lasts a long while, even with two people using it (aprox 2 weeks or more for two people). Coast to Coast’s most potent CBD oil is listed as 250 mg which is 25% CBD. 25% is pretty potent stuff!
*A quick important thing to note here
when you are not familiar with CBD products. The potency or strength is listed as mg and the amount of product in the syringe or bottle is listed as ml. To know the actual strength percentage, you have to do a little math. If a bottle is listed as 500mg of CBD, and the amount in the container is 30ml, you have a product that is 16%. 500 divide by 30 is your actual potency per ml.
No worries, I noticed that the shops are quite clear as to which of these percentages are used. For medicinal purposes, I recommend 10% and higher. I do not see the point of using anything lower. You will be disappointed if you buy a product that is only 3% CBD for any health issues. It is simply too low to have much effect. The company I regularly buy my Hemp CBD oil from, Coast to Coast Medicinals is Canadian, so it’s better for Canadians to order from.
What illnesses or ailments are CBD concentrates used for?
You probably thought I was never going to get to this point. Thanks for your patience! Well, I and some other family members use it for pain relief in damaged joints.
It greatly reduces the inflammation in my arthritis afflicted knees so that I can move about almost normally.
I rarely have any aching in the joints. I do not have to take any pain medicine, ever! Except for the CBD oil of course. Read my story of how I was rescued from a life of using a walker and cane here.
Rick Simpson oil is a CBD oil that was and is curing cancer for many people who use it. A brave Canadian pioneer in using cannabis oil medicinally, Rick Simpson had to leave Canada to get away from the police who were continually raiding his property and arrested him more than a few times. Rick Simpson was growing a high CBD, low THC strain of Marijuana which was often referred to as ‘Hemp’.
Rick would make Full Spectrum CBD oils from plants that he grew himself. Free of charge, Rick would dispense the oil to any who needed it as medicine.Check out a couple of videos on the Rick Simpson story, I have a couple on the Videos page. Many are calling their CBD oils RSO, (Rick Simpson Oil) but Rick would let you know that those do not necessarily have his blessing.
People are using his name without his permission. Nevertheless, the letters RSO are not patented, and it’s become a generic name for some products that are made from a high CBD low THC strain of Marijuana or from Hemp buds.
CBD oils are very successful at controlling
and even eliminating seizures in children and adults. There are news stories about children having their source of CBD taken away by over zealous lawmakers and police. Some families are forced to move to a country or state that will allow them to give their child the life saving oil. This is a travesty.
It’s perfectly legal for a Doctor to prescribe a drug to a child, that has multiple side effects and often does more harm than good. There is something very screwed up in a countries’ laws, when those laws prevent someone from accessing a plant that could save that person’s life or greatly improve quality of life.
Cancer (varying kinds), seizures (from varying conditions), pain relief (from many reasons), insomnia (chronic) are the four main reasons most people use CBD oils for but there are many more. Users of CBD or the actual cannabis herb, also use it for depression. One of the side effects of cannabis is happiness!
Relaxing the laws regarding Cannabis plants
will allow for more research to be done for many more conditions that humans have. There is some promising research showing that CBD oils (cannabinoids) can slow and even halt the progression of dementia. Quite frankly, it’s alarming how many seniors are succumbing to Alzheimers! Let’s get those laws off of Cannabis’ back and get research busy on possibly curing this dementia plague.
I recently came across this bit of news, regarding medical use of Marijuana. A former police officer opened up a vaping/smoking salon for medical users in an old un used building in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. This Lounge started of being called Vapes On Main, but changed their name to Vapes Off Main.
They are run as a private club, but anyone can drop in during their operating hours to get information on joining or for cannabis products too. What a great idea! This would be especially welcome for those that are not allowed to smoke or vape in their rented apartments.
This bit of news was from 2014, and since then they’ve moved at least three times, from Main St. to St. Mary’s St, to Albert Street and presently reside at 655 Westminister, Wpg, MB. I am guessing they’ve been persecuted for their cannabis use. They have a facebook page where you can contact them at Vapes off Main. The fact that Marijuana is now legal recreationally, will no doubt open doors for them, but might also complicate matters too. Interesting….
Well this brings me to the end of this post with my thoughts on cbd for healing everything, or almost everything (someday). If you haven’t figured this out by now, I am very passionate about healing with plants and foods, the way that nature has designed.
The following video is a short 3 minute presentation of the Hemp plant, very well done.
