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.

Happy Hemp News!

A new study conducted by the Nova Institute and HempConsult regarding the growing market for industrial hemp foods and beverages reveals the immense market for the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD as a nutritional supplement and for medicinal uses.

Industrial hemp field figures rose from only 8.000 ha in 2011 to 25.000ha in 2015, due to rising demands in the food, food supplement and pharmaceutical industries thanks to industrial hemp’s reputation as a superfood. Which is why we believe in GreenSnake® Hemp Juice!

The study states that CBD as a medicine has the potential of a 2 billion € per annum profit in Europe alone, with an estimated minimum of 24 million € annually. With the main focus on treating for instance epilepsy, anxiety disorders, ADHD, schizophrenia, inflammation-related illnesses etc.

What we need is further scientific research being conducted, raising general public awareness and investments in the development of this newly emerging market. GreenSnake® Hemp Juice is very excited about this!

The studies are available for purchase.

We look forward to the presentation of these two new studies at the „13th International Conference of the European Industrial Hemp Association“, which will take place in Cologne on the 1st and 2nd of June 2016. 250 industrial hemp experts such as myself will be attening the conference which is the worldwide largest one of its kind.

We are excited to discuss all new findings with our fellow hemp folks and network to bring the best outcome to everyone!

 

Happy hemping everyone!

Drogengefahr für Kinder durch Hanfproteinpulver?

Bildschirmfoto 2016-04-21 um 11.52.59

Am 13.4. berichtete SPIEGEL ONLINE von der Rücknahme des Veganz Hanf Protein Pulvers aus dem Handel (Quelle:http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/service/dm-nimmt-hanfproteinpulver-wegen-hohem-thc-gehalt-aus-handel-a-1086968.html). Die Begründung: der THC Wert könnte schädlich für Kleinkinder sein. Drogengefahr im drogenfreien Hanf? Dieselbe Meldung gab es zuvor im Portal www.lebensmittelwarnung.de. 20 Mikrogramm THC in 25 Gramm Proteinpulver (entspricht 0.02 Milligramm THC) wird als gefährlich angesehen für ein Kleinkind mit 15 kg Körpergewicht. Diese Meldung scheint mir unsinnige und falsche Panikmache. Wem nutzt das? Die geltenden Grenzwerte wurden gar nicht überschritten. Hier die Fakten über geltende Grenzwerte (BVL Bundesamt für Verbraucherschutz und Lebensmittelsicherheit):

Als kleinste psychoaktiv wirksame Menge ist 2.5 mg (Milligramm) THC angenommen pro Tag pro Mensch mit 60 kg Körpergewicht. 20 mal geringer als diese kleinste Menge ist die “maximal zulässige Sicherheitsmenge” mit 0.125 mg THC Pro Tag pro Mensch mit 60 kg Körpergewicht. Das bedeutet, dass bei dieser Menge garantiert kein “high” entsteht! Es sich also um drogenfreie Lebensmittel handelt. Wenn ein Kleinkind diese Sicherheitsmenge THC konsumieren wollte müsste es vom veganz Protein Pulver täglich 780 Gramm zu essen bekommen und hätte grantiert immer noch keine psychoaktive Wirkung. Was also soll die Panikmache? Hier braucht es gut informierte Verbraucher.

Ein Problem bei der Bestimmung des THC Gehaltes ist die fehlende Grundlage in Europa und den USA, mit welcher Meßmethode gemessen werden soll. Hier gibt es noch keine Norm. In Europa ist man der Meinung, dass die Grenzwerte für THC gar nicht streng genug sein können (20 fach unterhalb der geringsten THC Menge, die noch gerade soeben psychoactiv ist). Wobei die psychoaktive Wirkung ebenfalls nicht genau und einheitlich definiert ist. In den USA erhalten Kleinkinder gegen die Wirkungen von Epilepsie “medical Cannabis” mit maximal 1% Gehalt an THC in der Pflanze. Wieviel THC in dem daraus gewonnenen Medikament enthalten ist, weiß ich nicht genau, aber sicher ist der THC Gehalt wesentlich höher als die hier angegebene deutsche “maximal zulässige Sicherheitsmenge”. Die Eltern der kranken Kinder haben berichtet, dass ein neues Präparat mit weniger THC die Wirkungen der Epilepsie nicht genügend dämpfe. Sie berichten auch, dass die Kinder von den THC Werten bis maximal 1% in der Pflanze die Kinder nicht “high” werden, sondern aktiv am Leben teilnehmen und sich sehr gut entwickeln.

Es gibt also noch weite Spielräume von THC Werten, die auf ihre Sicherheit für Kinder und erwachsene Konsumenten untersucht werden müssen. In einem Nahrungsmittel wie es Hanf nun mal ist, können die Werte restriktiv gehandhabt werden. Falschinformationen, die dem Verbraucher eine Gefahr vorgaukeln, dienen aber nicht der Gesundheit der Verbraucher, sondern nur der Pharmaindustrie, die eine so fantastische Pflanze wie den Hanf am liebsten vom Lebensmittel Markt verdrängen würde. Das lassen wir nicht zu.

Ich bin der Meinung, dass wir dringend eine informierte, offene Diskussion über dieses Thema brauchen.
