Sign the Medical Cannabis Declaration (MCD)

 

The Declaration of Human Rights for Medical Access to Cannabis and Cannabinoids states the following:

“According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the  United Nations in 1948:

“Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person”  (Article 3).

“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the  health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food,  clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and  the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness,  disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in  circumstances beyond his control” (Article 25, Paragraph 1).

Whereas this Declaration applies to everyone and all people, whereas  many doctors are banned by legal requirements from treating their  patients with cannabis-based medicines and whereas many people cannot  afford access to cannabis-based drugs we thus declare that:

1. Every medical doctor has the right to treat his or her patients with cannabinoids and cannabis products according to the rules of  good medical care.
2. Every patient has the right to access cannabis and cannabinoids for medical treatment supervised by a medical doctor, regardless of  social status, standard of living or financial means.”

 

The MCD is already signed by nearly 4.700 people.

Happy hemping everyone!

Hanf und die Pharmaindustrie – mittendrin die EU

Ich kann aus eigener Erfahrung bestätigen, dass die großen Konzerne die EU “regieren”.
Mein Fall: ich habe durch Forschung herausgefunden, dass die Pflanze Cannabis bzw. der drogenfreie Hanf als Lebensmittel sehr viele wichtige Nährstoffe enthält. z.B. alle Proteine.
Bisher waren die Träger dieser wertvollen Inhaltsstoffe, die Blätter und oberen Blütenstände auf dem Feld geblieben – verschwendet. Es war schon bekannt, dass auch im drogenfreien Hanf außerdem sehr wertvolle Gesundheitsstoffe sind, die Cannabinoide – jedoch nicht als Lebensmittel.

Die Pharmaindustrie hatte bereits ihre Hände darauf gelegt und wollte Cannabinoide nicht frei zugänglich den Menschen überlassen. Ihre Lobby Maschinerie setzte bald in die Welt, Cannabis, das sei eine gefährliche Droge, aus der allenfalls die Pharmaindustrie etwas Gutes machen könne.
Die Politiker, die den Unterschied zwischen hohen THC Gehalten im Cannabis und niedrigen THC Gehalten im Hanf nicht zu unterscheiden wußten, fingen plötzlich an, alles, was THC enthält der Pharmaindustrie zu überlassen. Deshalb der ganze Legalisierungskampf, es geht mal wieder ums Geld für die Großkonzerne.

Niemand kümmerte sich darum, die Nährstoffe aus dem Industriehanf (im Gegensatz zum High produzierenden Cannabis) für den Menschen zugänglich zu machen. Erst meine Erfindung machte das möglich. Aus dem Hanf den Saft zu pressen, in dem ALLE Inhaltsstoffe die Nahrung und auch die anderen gesunden Stoffe enthalten ist.
Als Pressreste mit den schwerverdaulichen Ballaststoffen blieb auch für die Kühe etwas Nahrhaftes übrig.

Diese Erfindung ließ ich patentieren, ich wollte sie auf keinen Fall der Pharmaindustrie überlassen. Ich bin Mitglied der EIHA, der Europäischen Industrie-Hanf Association. Zusammen mit anderen, die den Nährwert des Hanfes unter die Menschen bringen wollen, müssen wir feststellen, dass in Brüssel die Pharmaindustrie dabei ist, uns den freien Zugang zur Nahrungs-Verwertung von Industrie-Hanf zu verbauen. Nur sie will die Cannabinoide zu Medizin verarbeiten können.

Die Pharmaindustrie will ein einzelnes Cannabinoid patentieren lassen und behauptet nun, überall wo dieses Cannabinoid drin sei, handele es sich nicht um Nahrung, sondern um Medizin.Das ist genauso schwachsinnig wie zu behaupten, die Zitronen dürften nur noch zu Medizin verarbeitet werden, weil sie Vitamin C enthalten, oder die Tomaten seien Medizin, weil sie Glutamat enthalten.

Doch die Brüsseler Bürokraten scheinen es zu verpassen sich schlau zu machen und verlassen sich nur allzu gerne auf die Einflüsterungen der Pharmalobby. Das wäre so gar nicht möglich, wenn wir in jedem Land einzeln die Bestimmungen machten. Die Fachpolitiker aus allen Ländern können sich ja dann miteinander eine gemeinsame Europäische Lösung überlegen.
Das wäre transparenter als der undemokratische Brüsseler Apparat, in dem fernab jeder direkten Länderkontrolle die Einflussnahme der Lobbyisten blüht, weil nur die Großkonzerne den EU Markt bestimmen wollen und ihn somit einfach kaufen.

Cannabis als Medizin – der Kurs

Bildschirmfoto 2016-05-16 um 13.15.46

Das Hanfjournal hat einen informativen Artikel mit dem Titel “Der Kurs zu Cannabis als Medizin – Teil 1” veröffentlicht, in dem Dr. med. Grotenhermen die medizinisch wirksamen Bestandteile von Cannabis zusammengefasst hat.

Falls Ihr also irgendwelche Fragen haben solltet, schaut Euch den Artikel an und er wird Euch hoffentlich helfen Licht ins Dunkel zu bringen.

Beispielsweise erklärt Dr.med. Grotenhermen CBD wie folgt:

 “Cannabidiol ist das häufigste Cannabinoid im Faserhanf und in Drogenhanfsorten oft das zweithäufigste Cannabinoid nach THC. CBD verursacht keine cannabistypischen psychischen Wirkungen. Es besitzt beispielsweise antiepileptische, angstlösende, antipsychotische und weitere Eigenschaften, die medizinisch genutzt werden können.”

 

Deshalb lieben wir unseren GreenSnake® Hanfsaft, denn er ist voll mit CBD, 300mg CBD pro 100ml GreenSnake® Hanfsaft!

 

Happy hemping!

Hemp CBD product for cancer treatment approved by Brazilian government

#Hemptastic news everyone!

A CBD hemp product for cancer treatment has been approved by the Brazilian government as reported by Natural News.

The product is also approved as a prescription medication for the following by the Brazilian government: epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and chronic pain.

This is a breakthrough which will only be the beginning of the #hemprevolution.

ECannabis reports that the product by Medical Marijuana, Inc. is called Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™). According to ECannabis “it will be imported as a prescription medication for cancer” and the Brazilian government “is subsidizing its cost under the Brazilian federal government’s heath care system.”

Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. says “Brazil is a shining example of how a national government has responded to humanitarian interests and has swiftly and diligently passed favorable legislation on behalf of the health and well-being of its people – children in particular.”

We are excited to see policy and law changes such as this one taking place.

 

Happy hemping everyone!

Why I support the Medical Cannabis Declaration (MCD)

 

Hemp Juice Lady strongly supports the crowdfunding campaign for the Medical Cannabis Declaration (MCD), as silver donor. We believe in the necessity of such organisations to raise further awareness and bring about political change, as well as educate and inform the public and practicioners on the incredible benefits and uses of medical cannabis. They are for example going to do this by providing free online lectures (available in 10 languages).

The Medical Cannabis Declaration started the global information campaign “Yes to Cannabis as Medicine”, with this video.

You can support and donate here.

So who is behind the MCD?

Grotenhermen

Hemp is no joke!

Hemp has exactly the same potential as cannabis.

  • Same CBD content
  • Yet, no need for a prescription
  • And no psychoactive reaction

The only difference between hemp and cannabis is the THC content of above 0.3% in cannabis which leads to a psychoactive reaction – as THC is the only psychoactive component. Hemp THC content has to be below 0.3%.

  • Same health benefits (same medicinal and nutritional effects)
  • Much easier accessible for consumers (no prescription and legality issues)
  • You can work and drive ect. (non-psychoactive)

Properties of CBD are amongst others:

Nutritional properties:

  • Rich in: Proteins, minerals, omega fatty-acids, minerals, vitamins

Health properties:

  • Hemp is a natural taste enhancer and can therefore decrease the need for sugar and salt in cooking, baking and in beverages which leads to improved health due to less sugar and salt consumption.
  • CBD calms generally relaxes the nervous system and releases tension

Medical properties:

  •  CBD can relieve anxiety and gives you sort of a grounded relaxed, less tensed feeling
  • CBD can reduce blood sugar levels

 

Medical Properties of CBD Effects
Antiemetic Reduces nausea and vomiting
Anticonvulsant Suppresses seizure activity
Antipsychotic Combats psychosis disorders
Anti-inflammatory Combats inflammatory disorders
Anti-oxidant Combats neurodegenerative disorders
Anti-tumoral/Anti-cancer Combats tumor and cancer cells
Anxiolytic/Anti-depressant Combats anxiety and depression disorders

Advantages of hemp juice in comparison to CBD extracts

Hemp juice comes with the so called “Entourage Effect” which means the ingredients of the hemp plant are not destroyed in their naturally occurring shape and form when the juice is pressed.

So the juice contains the valuable ingredients in their natural matrix and can therefore fully unfold their effect on the human body. Extracts do not have this “Entourage effect” as the natural matrix is taken apart and only CBD is present in the extract, no other ingredients.

Moreover, extracts can contain chemical extraction residues which can be harmful. Our patented GreenSnake® hemp juice does not contain any additives. It solely is the pressed hemp juice – nothing more, nothing less.

What we hope to achieve

One of our main goals is to implement quality standards for customers with our patents through license agreements. Producers will have to abide by quality rules set forward in license agreements. There are barely any quality checks or standards in place yet with regard to hemp products because this is such a new industry and the market is still in the process of developing.

Let me know how CBD has helped you!

Happy Hemping everyone!

 

 

Der Cannabis-Gesetzentwurf ist zynische Planwirtschaft

• Politics / Legality •
(for english translation see further down: Germany’s new medical Cannabis law: a cynical command economy)

  • Ab jetzt soll die Pflanze Cannabis  und nicht ihre pharmazeutische “Zubereitung” in Apotheken erhältlich sein.
  • Nicht die Ärzte entscheiden über die Diagnose und Therapie mit dem Pflanzen-“Stoff”, sondern die Bundesregierung gibt vor, wer darf und wer nicht.
  • Die Krankenkassen werden zu Kontrolleuren.
