What Cannabinoids and Terpenes Can Do for You

https://www.learngreenflower.com/video-2-understanding-cannabinoids-and-terpenes

This video is great basic knowledge on cannabinoids and terpenes. It explains why Cannabis is such a huge breakthrough discovery in medical efficacy – and it is safe to use. It becomes available as drug free deep frozen pressed hemp juice (with very low THC) or as deep fozen pressed medical cannabis juice with THC higher than 0.3% in the dry plant material.

The beauty of hemp juice or cannabis juice is

  • you can drink it raw as it is delivered deep frozen with THC-A and CBD-A
  • you can heat it and activate the cannabinoids into THC and CBD
  • you can enjoy the entire matrix of cannabinoids and terpenes in a pressed juice
  • you get the benefit of all proteins and vital nutrients in the plant
  • you get controlled quality from producers with patent license

(The only legal juice is from producers with a patent license carrying the seal GREEN SNAKE (reg. trademark). GREEN SNAKE wants contact to growers and prospective producers to share know how and patent license in Europe, the US, Canada, China, Brazil. This remark on behalf of GREEN SNAKE inventors of pressed hemp and cannabis juice I gladly share to help bring this amazing health food to everyone in need!)

Happy hemping everyone

DEA Disappoints Medical Cannabis But Helps Industrial Hemp

The Drug Enforcement Agency refused on Aug 11. 2016 several petitions to reschedule Cannabis from a schedule 1 drug to a schedule 2 drug.

However, the DEA approved new research opportunities. “This change illustrates DEA’s commitment to working together with the FDA and NIDA to facilitate research concerning marijuana and its components. DEA currently has 350 individuals registered to conduct research on marijuana and its components”.

At the same time “The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in consultation with DEA and the FDA, also released a statement of principles concerning provisions of the Agricultural Act of 2014 relating to the cultivation of industrial hemp.” “This statement of principles outlines the legalized growing and cultivating of industrial hemp for research purposes under certain conditions, such as in states where growth and cultivation are legal under state law. The 2014 Act did not remove industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances and, with certain limited exceptions, the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the CSA continue to apply to industrial hemp-related activities.”

This is but too small a step in the direction of giving industrial hemp its rightful place as drug-free food for people and animals. Specifically because:

  • “…but not for the purpose of general commercial activity, industrial hemp products may be sold in a State with an agricultural pilot program or among States with agricultural pilot programs but may not be sold in States where such sale is prohibited. Industrial hemp plants and seeds may not be transported across State lines.”

 

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.

Hemp and the pharmaceutical industry – and in the middle the EU

Big companies rule the the EU through lobbyism, as I can tell from own experience.

I have discovered through research that the cannabis plant, especially industrial hemp is also food and contains an extensive amount of nutrients, for instance all essential proteins and omega fatty acids.
Until now, the carriers of these valuable nutrients, namely the leaves and leafy blossoms have been wasted and simply left on the field during retting.
It was already common knowledge that industrial hemp also contains valuable health ingredients, the cannabinoids – yet never seen as food.

The pharmaceutical industry has an eye on these valuable cannabinoids and wants to make sure they are classified as a pharmaceutical and not as a freely available plant ingredient.

The pharmaceutical lobby soon began to spread the message that cannabis was a dangerous drug which if anything could only be turned into something positive and useful by the pharmaceutical industry.

Politicians who were not able to distinguish between high THC levels in marijuana and low levels of THC in industrial hemp soon began to pass everything that contained any THC whatsoever over to pharmaceutical companies.

This is how the whole legalization fight emerged – it is once again simply a matter of profit for the big pharma players.

Nobody even considered making the valuable nutrients in industrial hemp available to humans.

Only my invention brought about this idea that hemp is food. My invention is to press raw hemp juice which contains ALL healthy naturally occurring ingredients of the hemp plant to be consumed by humans.

Since the juice production also yields press remnants which contain the hard to digest fibers of the plant, nutritious cattle feed would also be an additional value created when producing the juice.

I got this invention patented in order to ensure the pharmaceutical industry would not get a hold of this new discovery and could therefore not restrict the wider general public from access to this healthy nutrition.

As a member of the European Industrial Hemp Association I sadly have to witness with many other enthusiastic hemp advocates that the the pharmaceutical industry is currently working hard on Brussels to restrict the free access and right to process industrial hemp as a food.
Their aim is to exclusively handle Cannabinoids and use it in medicine. Therefore, they are trying to get single cannabinoids patented and now claim everything that contains these patented cannabinoids, such as CBD or THC, cannot be categorised as food but as a pharmaceutical.

This claim is equally grotesque as claiming lemons could only be used as medicine due to the vitamin C they contain or tomatoes are medicine because of the glutamate they contain.

Tomatoes contain within their matrix of natural ingredients a substance called glutamic acid or glutamate, a common neurotransmitter. However, this does not make a tomato a medicinal product, or a pharmaceutical prescription drug or subject to governmental permission. Glutamate, since it was discovered in tomatoes, did not even make it a novel food. The level of glutamic acid in tomatoes is not monitored either.

It looks like bureaucrats in Brussels do not invest enough time into gathering information, hence they simply rely on information provided by the pharma lobby itself.

We would be better off if every country within the EU would decide for itself. Specialized politicians, under democratic control, would then debate a EU wide solution.

A result of this would be a more transparent process as opposed to the current process in Brussels. In which big corporations and their lobbyists are breathing down EU bureaurats necks in order to dictate that except for hemp seeds nothing else of the hemp plant shall be food for general consumption. This happens far off from any direct nation-state supervision or monitoring.

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!

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.
