Jahan Marcu, PhD: if I was to describe a perfect plant, this is a pharmacological treasure trove.
Dr. David Bearman: I had a certain amount of skepticism with the enormous range of conditions that can be treated and how effective it is for many people.
Dr. Sunil Aggarwal: the research is showing so many values of this plant. There are 800 patient trials going on multiple sites. The data is there.
Dr. Allan Frankel: I have a lot of MS patients getting out of wheel chairs and this goes on and on.
Male 1: I went and got the needle biopsy and sure enough there were cancer cells in the lymph nodes. It is starting to go away. The doctors can’t believe it; all the doctors have said the same thing. We don’t know that much about it (Sacred Plant) but don’t stop. It’s working so don’t stop.
Mother of handicapped child: Over the years we tried close to 12 medications including morphine which would knock her out. With the first few drops (of Sacred Plant), the seizures stop. It was like pulling the plug from the wall. it’s not there anymore.
Kyle Turley: If I had known how to use this as a medicine the way I do today, when I first started playing the game of football in my opinion I could have defeated everything that interrupted and interfered with my career.
Female: when I got my report back I had 20% shrinkage of the tumors from this tincture. This is what I heard before using the plant: he said he had never seen a diagnosis like this before; there were numerous tumors in my liver and lymph nodes. I had metastases in my brain and they were growing and they would eventually kill me and I was interested in anything above and beyond normal treatment.
Mother of handicapped child: God said from the beginning he put all the plants on earth to help us. it was just a matter of finding the right one.
Female 3: this is why we fight and this is why we try to make changes. There are so many people who don’t have this knowledge. The medicine is available to them but a lot of them are afraid and this is something new and something different. it has a stigma. I am risking jail in order to save my life.
John Malanca, host: over the next 7 episodes I’ll guide you through how this sacred plant interacts with our immune system and aids in the treatment of many diseases. In the first episode you will hear medical experts, patients and scientists describe one of the most healing plants on earth. The information we are about to share could ease the suffering of millions of people. Seven years ago we learned that my wife’s father was terminally ill. I was crushed and could not accept that western medicine had nothing to offer him. I searched for anything to give us hope and I was praying that the Sacred Plant would give my father in law comfort in his final days. I didn’t know it would save his life.
John: we are here to expose the truth about this sacred plant that has been used for five thousand years. The gifts of this amazing plant have been covered up by propaganda and lies in the media even by our government. You will discover this plant aids with conditions of arthritis, cancer, epilepsy, MS and much more. These things are normally treated with pharmaceuticals that have devastating side effects. As we have shown you these conditions go into remission when treated with this amazing plant. why is that and what is the secret of this plant. Why is so effective for so many diseases? It sounds too good to be true.
Ty Bollinger: we have a health crisis in this country that has arisen because drugs don’t treat the root cause of the problem. they mask the symptoms and the problem with pharmaceutical drugs is they will create more symptoms. Later they create a drug to treat then, but it’s a band aid that creates more symptoms. It is the perpetual endless cycle of treating with pharmaceutical drugs and not getting to the root cause. That is where the sacred plant comes in that can go to the root cause of some of the symptoms we see and get rid of them.
Mike Adams: this plant has been here throughout history and has co-evolved with us and with our ancestors. we have used the plant and its constituents as medicine, religiously, food source that is rich in healthy oils and healthy seeds. It is only relatively recently that there has been prohibition against this plant.
John: we heard about this plant from our own research and not our doctors. We will tell our story later in this episode and how this plant works on the receptors in the body
Sayer Ji: this sacred plant affects receptors in our bodies that have been ‘hard-wired’ over time by accessing the thousands of natural substances that cultures have used for healing themselves.
Mike Adams: in our science lab we have looked at a lot of different botanicals and a lot of healing substances. when we look at the sacred plant we find it has the most astonished healing molecules that mother nature has found way to rearrange by using the same elements of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon and just rearranged differently. so the sacred plant is sort of a re-coding of the information system of mother nature that is compatible with your body and your mind. It is like ‘high-level software’ that is actually programming you to heal. I believe it is put on this earth as a sacred plant to accomplish this for humanity. We are supposed to be awake, aware and alive. We are supposed to have access to medicine and it is supposed to be open source. It is supposed to be made of the most common elements of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. That is what we find throughout this sacred plant. The true medical benefits of this plant threatens the multi billion dollar pharmaceutical industry.
Chris Wark: our modern medical system which they call ‘evidence based medicine’ is really patent based and profit based medicine because they are only interested in drugs and therapies that can be patented and generate high profits. The industry turns a blind eye to anything that is natural and non-toxic.
Sayer Ji: the primary reason this sacred plant is not a household remedy is because it was a threat to the advent of patented chemical medicines. In the 30s you would see in pharmacies around this country this plant which was a primary prevention for a wide range of complaints. It was at that time that the pharmaceutical industry started to co-opt medicine and push out any non patentable substances that included this plant which as records have shown has been used for almost ten thousand years. it was a primary threat. So politically they ousted and criminalized it. Only now do we see the support for the most powerful healing agents I know of.
Jahan Marcu, PhD: there are over 500 compounds of the plant. We have only investigated a half dozen of them. We don’t even understand how they work but they are effective, non-toxic and if it was brought into a lab today it would be coveted as a wonder drug.
Corrine Malanca: there is so much medical potential in this plant–anti-inflammatory to sleep aide. I have seen patients in total reversal of their autoimmune condition whether it is fibromyalgia, lupus, lyme disease, autism, or epilepsy.
Dr. Dustin Sulak: it is hard to believe that one medicine could treat so many different conditions in the body systems. Even as a physician and scientist I had trouble swallowing that ‘pill.’ Was it possible that one plant could do so much.
John; we have gathered some of the leading scientists and doctors in the field to share their findings. Cancer today is taking more lives than ever before. A shocking 1 in 3 women and 1 in 3 men will get cancer in their lifetime. 1 in 3 seniors are getting Alzheimer’s. Auto immune disease is on the rise. 70 million Americans are facing shattering life changing conditions of arthritis and MS. Over one billion people world wide are in chronic pain every day and the pain medications may be inflicting irreparable damage. we can treat and even beat these illnesses.
Amber Lyon survived her harrowing journey with PTSD, I was in Bahrain interviewing. there was men with black masks carrying the machine guns…I was screaming CNN, CNN don’t shoot. I was just waiting for gunshots to go off. I was taken to a prison and questioned and the State Department helped us get out 9 hours later. Over the course of ten years I had absorbed so much pain that I developed the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. that was horrific and I went from picture perfect life style of a stoic successful woman to almost a child. I couldn’t sleep, I had problems eating and my mind was always racing and I was constantly in a fight or flight mode. if I heard a door slam or a helicopter my pulse would start racing and I would almost pass out. I couldn’t write any more and I was thinking about taking prescription medications. But as a journalist I had covered street drugs and I saw that illegal street drugs were being replaced with prescription medications. I saw a woman shooting up with Xanax which is a major treatment for PTSD. I wanted nothing to do with those medicines when it came time for my own healing. I started researching plant compounds and the science and medicinal benefits. I had been told the opposite of what they could do and that they were helpful.
John: Amber was able to treat her condition with plant medicine and is now educating others on the power of plants to heal.
Another Female: I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and I originally took the vicodin that they gave me and everyone around me hated me because it altered my personality so much.
Kyle Turley: a year ago I was diagnosed with pre-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia and I was contemplating suicide daily; I had homicidal thoughts and race and depression that was completely out of control.
Kristen: when I was 16 they found I had juvenile arthritis and lupus. I was on methadone and morphine.
Male: I went back to the MRI place and they said they found a lemon sized tumor in the right lobe of the brain.
John: The sacred Plant is Cannabis Sativa and it dates back thousands of years in the oldest medicine known to mankind. And most of us have been mislead that it is a dangerous drug instead of a healing plant. Many patients won’t consider researching cannabis or trying it because it is against their moral values or their religion. I held those beliefs until I decided that the cannabis was a gift from the Creator to ease our suffering and heal our bodies.
Sayer Ji: I believe that ancient cultures knew in their DNA that this plant was sacred because it has profound benefits in alleviating human suffering. When people think about cannabis as some vile psychoactive weed that people use to abuse themselves, they are not getting the fact that it grows wild and freely and it was basically a gift from the creator to be able to heal ourselves.
Mike Adams: to those of us who say that cannabis is against their religion it makes no sense because If you believe in God then you believe that God put the plants here to be biocompatible with us who were created in the image of god. How can God have created us and not have created cannabis? Cclearly if you believe that god created the natural world and had an influence on it then God created both.
Ty: in Genesis 1:29 it talks about how god gave us all the trees bearing fruit and seeds, the herbs and all the natural plants for food and medicine. There are Old and New Testament scholars who believe that some of the anointing oils described had cannabis oil in them. I don’t believe there wasn’t anything put on earth that did not have some medicinal qualities. Prior to 1937 cannabis was used in almost every pharmacy and was available over the counter. Medical doctors up to that time used cannabis in their practice. In 1937 the Marihuana tax act was passed. Marihuana was just a term that the DEA put into the American consciousness. They took the two post popular Spanish names, Mary and Juan, and put them together. they called it marihuana. The tax act effectively made cannabis illegal and at the time the AMA did not protest against this tax because they did not know what marihuana was; the term had never been used in the US and no one knew what it was. The AMA knew that cannabis was a very healing plant. there was a medical doctor and attorney, Dr. Woodward, who testified for the AMA after the fact that had the AMA known that marihuana was cannabis they would have protested making it illegal.
Chris Wark: cannabis is an interesting topic. I grew up thinking that marijuana was an illegal gateway drug and it was demonized on TV ads and talks given in schools. When I got to college I started researching on my own and I learned that cannabis is one of the most versatile plants on earth. Not only is it used in textiles, it has nutritional value and in recent years we have seen all these testimonials start to percolate up from people who healed with cannabis. My thinking about the plant changed completely.
Corrine Malanca: there is so much misinformation about this plant. I was guilty of assuming that this plant is only recreational and only utilized by those wanting to get high. This could not be further from the truth. I learned this through my path with my family member. there is so much medical information about this plant; it is an anti-inflammatory and I could go on and on.. connecting the plant to the recreational use only couldn’t be further from the truth. It is still medical.
Ty: it is interesting to me that we are being mislead about this plant. People don’t realize that one of the first Model T’s that Henry Ford developed was made from Hemp fiber and ran on Hemp fuel. People don’t realize that one of the first versions of the US Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were drafted on hemp paper. People don’t realize that in the colony of Virginia in the early 1700s you could pay your taxes with Hemp. for awhile you were required to grow it because it was such a beneficial crop. People don’t realize that all the founding fathers had farms that grew hemp. this is history that has been hidden from us. We are not taught that it is a medicinal weed and that cannabis is an amazingly powerful super food.
Sayger Ji: this plant actually represents one of the greatest threats to the medical establishment because it actually has hundreds of health benefits that competes with the pharmaceuticals that are producing millions if not billions of dollars annually. So when you have a plant that grows freely as if a weed in your back yard threatening a trillion dollar industry, you are going to see an irrational response which is the vilification and the criminalization of its possession and use as a healing agent.
Gregory Gerdman, PhD: we don’t really know the ancestral condition of the cannabis plant. it is absolutely clearly evolved out of the evolution of humankind out of central Asia and migrated around the globe because it was cherished by human beings. The use of cannabis as medicine is quite old. As a modern science it has lagged behind.
John: as I said early in the show, my father-in-law, Stan, was given a terminal diagnosis. My wife Corinne and I were lucky enough to live in a medically legal state and had the opportunity to try cannabis for his cancer.
Stan’s wife: we were out to dinner in February, 2011 and Stan got a call from his primary care physician who said, ‘it’s cancer, stage 3B lung cancer.’ You just gulp and go on from there. after that in April he finished all his radiation and chemotherapy.
Corinne: 10 days later he started slurring his words and we were afraid he had had a stroke. They brought him back in and they did a brain scan and saw that he had a brain tumor on the brain stem. Of course then the doctor’s suggestion was to go back in for full brain radiation. He did that and he was sent home for Hospice care and they said there was nothing more they could do for him but give him prednisone. He was wasting and on full time oxygen and literally wasting away before our eyes. John had the wherewithal to ask the oncologist about medical cannabis. We had stumbled on the statistic that 40% of cancer patients die from malnutrition before they die of cancer. We thought if Dad could eat and drink fluids he could pass peacefully and we were looking for comfort.
John: Corrine and I went into panic education mode and we infused some coconut capsules infused with raw, unheated cannabis. There was no guidance, direction or help so we gave him 3 to 4 milligrams of this coconut oil once a day. Within 24 hours he was eating and we had accomplished our goal that we wanted him to eat. His appetite and complexion came back and within 8 days he was off his oxygen. I remember going to their home and seeing him shuffling around his room. I cautioned him not to get too excited but he said that something was working. his life kept on improving and he started driving and getting out of the house. He rode a bike and swung a golf club a few times and at the 6 month mark, Hospice ‘fired’ him as a patient because they were coming over once a week to play cards with Stan.
Corrine: he was living a very normal life so we did get him some cannabis oil at the 6 month mark and gave him a very minute amount. We didn’t know how much we were on the right track. we instinctively gave him a micro dose, a tiny drop the size of a sesame seed under his tongue before bed. He never changed from that and that is all he ever took. at the 9 month mark there was a report from the oncologist and my dad was never going to be scanned again. He knew he was terminal and he was just going to enjoy his life. Apparently he went behind our backs and got scanned and the report read no evidence of recurrent disease. He was cancer free after 9 months of cannabis treatment and that was over 6 years ago and he is 84 now.
Stan’s wife: the brain cells keep regenerating and it’s just wonderful. he exercises everyday doing lunges and squats and his oncologist has said he had a one percent chance of being where he is today.
John: I remember that night when your mother shared with us that we had saved your father’s life.
Corinne: this is big for John because he lost his father shortly before that.
John: that alone is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. that is a gift and we have a great life with my father in law and he is 841/2 and he is living life again and was given a 2nd chance of life and he is living every moment of it.
John: one of the most exciting areas of cannabis research is the anti cancer properties of the plant. In episode #4 we will explain how the science behind the plant works with cancer. now let’s meet Patricia Crone, a scholar at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton New Jersey. Patricia has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and we will follow her journey through our series as she researches and seeks out medical cannabis to save her own life.
Patricia: I have lung cancer which is not a very good type to have. I have metastasis in my brain and this will grow and eventually kill me. So I am interested in anything above the normal treatment that can help and this is where marijuana comes in. I wanted not to get high, but to get well. Chemotherapy was terrible and they cut out a third of my lung and a lot of lymph nodes. Then I had another MRI and every time I had one I got more nervous about the results. It showed I had metastasis in my brain and they condemned me to whole brain radiation. At that point death became very, very real. They never gave me any day, but it was very clear from their actions that they had written me off. I am a Professor of Islamic History at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. This place is as close to an ivory tower as it gets.
Patricia: If any of my colleagues get high it is on pure research and thought. Now we are in my grand, beautiful office. I have had a lot of fun sitting around that text struggling with Islamic in different languages. It is good fun but with whole brain radiation I would not be able to work the way I do and I wouldn’t feel as well as I do. If I couldn’t work what is left? So I began to think harder about cannabis and research it. Some said it would take a pound to produce two ounces of high grade oil. I went to my sister who has a summer house in upstate and we started looking for cannabis because of the brain radiation (that was suggested). I was desperate to get cannabis oil or a pound of cannabis to make it. Only Oregon accepted out of state applications. I looked for someone who could be a grower for medical cannabis. They couldn’t hope. You really go into that panic state.
John: there are so many patients like Patricia who don’t know where to find medical cannabis or where to start. They endure the devastating side effects of chemo and radiation without any holistic alternatives. In episode 5 and 6 we will cover recommended formulation and dosing for cancer patients.
Dr. David Bearman: I saw an article in 1975 with a long list of things (cancer, Alzheimer’s, chronic pain, arthritis, multiple sclerosis) cannabis would be useful for and I thought people were using it as a propaganda tool. Now it turns out I have had patients of mine I have treated.
Dr. Frankel: I trained in internal medicine and have been doing this for 35 years. For every other patient and every other chair and every other situation is not only okay it is absolutely expected that I tell them everything I think. I could be wrong but I give my best judgment and that is why people come to anybody–to get their best judgment. that is what the Hippocratic Oath tells us clearly, to take care of the patient without regard to benefit or loss. I am internist who has now added some very useful tools to my tool box.
Gregory Gerdman, PhD: I am very curious about the anti-infectious and anti-microbial properties of cannabis. We are living in an era now of antibiotic resistance and chronic infection.
Dr. Sulak: the osteopathic tradition has a history of looking for new solutions to prevalent problems in health care and digging into the physiology and the anatomy of the body and realizing the most basic premise that healing comes from within. We have this most basic and incredible pharmacy. How can we stimulate that inner pharmacy to have a health care solution rather than suppressing drugs that is the present treatment model in medicine. We had a background in understanding cannabadoil treatment and after residency when I started my private practice in Maine in 2009 we were in the right place at the right time and a law had passed that expanded Maine’s cannabis’ role. I was the only physician that would certify and suddenly we had hundreds of patients at our door looking to use this medicine and we were blown away by what we had seen.
Dr. Danielle Saad: one of the most common diagnoses that qualifies is chronic pain. The next most common is PTSD in about 17% of our patients. Then we have a whole range of colitis and Crohn’s disease.
Dr. Sulak: then there are neurological diseases such as MS and spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. We see inflammatory conditions. Cannabis isn’t just one medicine. There are so many different compounds in this plant and their range and effect. The side effects are pretty mild especially compared to all of the alternatives. Cannabis is non-toxic at any dose. even if a pediatric patient took 1000 times the recommended does there would be no brain damage, no organ damage, no toxicity. It can seem too good to be true but this is really what we have been waiting for. This is the solution to our biggest challenges in health care right now. People are getting excited about it. I am so glad there is so much interest in the industry to continue to innovate and put this medicine in the hands of people.
Gregory Gerdman, PhD : how is it that the cannabinoids have such an effect on neurotransmission? I am a scientist so I study cellular and molecular neuroscience and physiology and I come into this field as a drug addiction researcher. I was funded by the national institute on drug abuse and I have been a drug abuse researchers and that is where so much of this has come from. There has been such pernicious institutional bias to research cannabis and see why it is ‘wrong.’ I was in the right place at the right time to be in some of the early research in endocannabinoids. When I got into this fields in the mid-nineties and was asking at neuro science meetings if they were looking into the endocannabinoids because cannabinoid respecters are in the brain areas they are looking at. the response I would get was usually along the lines that they did not study addictions, or marijuana and they were not interested in drug abuse whatsoever.
Dr. Allen Frankel: for the first 5 years I was using cannabis as a tool in my internal medicine practice there was not alternative but to tell them in 3000 year old Sanskrit terms that mean daytime and nighttime. It made it very easy for us. Everything has been crossed a million times and it ultimately comes down to the chemistry.
John. Lets meet Kristen and see what happened when she moved to Northern California to try using the sacred plant.
Kristen Peskuski : as a kid I was always sick; I had juvenile and lupus when I was 16. when I was 19 I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis and endometriosis and I got so bad that I was bed ridden for about 4 years. I had to self catherize for the bladder disease and I had 14 surgeries. I was in pain all the time using methadone and morphine and at one point 40 medications on a daily basis to control side effects. I decided to go off most of the medications and see I could find something to control it more naturally before the medications killed me. This is what happens to a lot of lupus My family was very concerned with everything going wrong with me and that coming out here was going to be a terrible problem. they were very conservative and lived in the Midwest where it was not legal at all. Now my mom is our receptionist and she will call and she will say ‘you have to save this person’ and she has made a complete turnaround. It can be a preventative for all kinds of conditions–Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and if you have cancer that runs in your family there is a lot of evidence out there that regular juicing is such a strong antioxidant that it will prevent all kinds of diseases.
Kristen: the different cannabinoids are good for different problems. CBN I know that you don’t hear much about and it is antibacterial. there are over 80 different ingredients in the cannabis plant and most of them have been bred out. We are trying to reintroduce strains with the original cannabinoids and look at which cannabinoid is good for which condition. then in the future maybe people could have a plant specific tailored for each of their medical problems. It is non-psychoactive which means there is no high and the fetus won’t feel anything. The pediatrician is aware that I am juicing. both of our children are extremely smart and healthy. I have an obstetrician who consults at UCSF with high risk OBs there and they agree that because of my immune system and the different conditions that I have, the drugs that would normally be used to control that in pregnancy are very risky or at least potentially have some risk. We know this controls my immune system without side effects. I feel that this is a safer choice.
John: Kristen realized that her conditions all had a common cause and they were linked to the endocannabinoid system. We will cover that in greater detail in episode 2. Once Kristen was ingested phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant, her immune system was able to function properly and her disease went into remission. The same phenomenon is happening to people all over the world many patients read about cannabis and struggle for a way to acquire the plant. This is heart breaking.
Dr. Dustin Sulak: the endocannabinoids system is a real physiological system discovered over 20 years ago. There have been thousands of articles written about this system over the last 20 years this is a well established system in human and animal physiology.
Dr. Sunil Aggarwal: the herb makes a resin like sap. This is a plant that is 37 years old that makes phytocannabinoids which robustly bind with these receptors and use the activity of the system. There are cannabinoids in immune cells and bone metabolism and there is research on the system.
Dr. Frankel: we make our own phytocannabinoids in our brain. There are two critical endocannabinoids: 2AG and Anadamide. 2AG is almost functionally identical to CBD. when you are treating people with estrogen deficiencies and adrenal and thyroid deficiencies one of the issues is when you take external or exogenous medication that we produce internally it is like a thermostat. So we stop making it which has consequences at times but CBD is causing the release in the bounds of our own internal cannabinoids which is remarkable.
Gregory Gerdman, PhD: the endocannabinoids system is an integrative system of homeostasis that seems to act on just about every physiological system that we know to promote the well being of the whole organism.
John: as recently as 1937 cannabis tinctures were commonly used by doctors in the US. They were an integral part of pharmacopeias. What happened? How did this plant medicine become prohibitive and criminalized.
Patricia Crone, scholar and cancer patient: Congress proposed a heavy tax in 1937. Cannabis based medicines were already losing out to regulations and ‘modern’ standardized drugs. the tax was opposed by the AMA. The law was passed and the AMA was on the record they opposed this, and then the drug wars started.
Ty: DuPont had patented the process for developing plastic, rayon, Dacron, nylon–all these different fabrics from oil. The cannabis/hemp plant was also used for making fibers and this was huge competition to DuPont’s use of oil and petro chemicals to develop these fabrics. Andrew Mellon was DuPont’s chief investor, Secretary of the Treasury. His nephew was Harry Anslinger who was appointed by the President to be the head of the Bureau of Narcotics which later became the Drug Enforcement Agency through the 30s, 40s and 50s and was behind the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. He was head of the prohibition which became the Marihuana law of 1950. He was overzealous with marijuana and there was ignorance which led to hysteria.
Patricia: the hysteria didn’t stop with Harry Anslinger. His original interest was in heroin and morphine, the hard drugs and he wasn’t interested in marijuana. Then they took up the battle as ‘Marijuana, the new menace to America’s school children.’ There was the idea that marijuana created homicidal maniacs. The scare tactics worked. by 1942 Cannabis was out of the American pharmacopeias and was not a dangerous drug. The controlled drug act was created and in the regulatory frame the most restrictive is on Schedule 1 which included heroin. Nixon sent Congress a letter to put it in schedule 1 even though it didn’t belong in Schedule 1 or Schedule 2. It was time to Wage War on Drugs. Nixon called Shafer in to make sure they didn’t come out with a report that was soft on marijuana.
Ty: schedule 1 according to DEA is that the substance cannot have any known medical uses. if you go to the American Cancer society website they have 6 or 7 known medical uses for cannabis. If you go further, you will find that the Dept. of health and Human Services had a patent on the medical uses of cannabis.
John: so our own government denounces cannabis and also holds a patent dated Oct 7, 2003 on cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. This is confusing and hypocritical.
Patricia: I went to the National Institute of Health. One scientist participated in the study of cannabis and the government took out a patent, noting its effectiveness in neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and HIV dementia as well as stroke and trauma. It was effective in treating people who had cancer radiation and chemotherapy as wells as toxins and oxidative stress. So here is proof that the US government admits that cannabis has positive medical uses. The Patent Number is US 6,630,507 B1.
Dr. William Courtney: If you go to cannabisinternational.org it is the first patent listed. it is 29 pages and worth reading several times and it tells you what anti-oxidants are, what reactive species are, and a list of oxidative associated diseases that include things as diverse as Downs’ Syndrome, cancer and autoimmune disorders, inflammatory conditions, heart attacks and strokes, and diabetes and Alzheimer’s. These are the conditions listed along with the doses that you need. Another interesting thing is to highlight prevention and prophylaxis as another scientific term for prevention. This patent refers to cannabinoids such as cannabadoil as advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity.
Dr. Frankel: this is painful to me on so many levels. The government puts people in jail while for marihuana (usage or possession) while government people are patenting this stuff. as a physician for the last 1 3/4s I have seen what CBD with quality medicine does for people. I am furious.
Dr. Courtney: my understanding is that they are leasing this patent to pharmaceutical companies and it is pretty clear that the pharmaceutical industry as a major part of health care has been estimated at 2.6 trillion dollars. If there is value here that is the domain of the pharmaceutical industry and I believe that they are interest in acquiring financial rights to whatever the value is particularly if you start seeing dramatic results such as making tumors evaporate. That is the type of thing that the transglobalists are going to want a big chunk of.
Dr. Sunil Aggarwal: there is a patent out there that the government owns that gives the idea that they own the idea of using cannabinoids to protect the brain, so somebody can come back and sue them. As they develop the ideas then they will require that you get a sub-license from that patent. it is a game of protecting future investment for your investors. The US government owns the ‘idea’ of chemicals from this plant that is officially ‘unsafe’ for medical use and is now so safe it can be used for people with major strokes to protect their brain. It shows how far away we are from the essential facts in the matter that this plant is useful for these things.
Mike Adams: the medical establishment decided long ago that they could not maximize their profits if the people have access to this Sacred Plant. If they have access to this plant they would not need pain killers and have Alzheimer’s and all these other conditions that the Sacred Plant helps address. We have been denied access to this as a deliberate strategy to enrich the profits of powerful corporations that are in essence enslaving humanity by depriving us of access to the natural solutions that have been made available to us by Mother nature.
John: It is confusing; why does the US government own a patent on the medical benefits of this plant called cannabis. Why would you waste your time and money in purchasing a patent in something you don’t even believe in? In 2013 Dr. Sanjay Gupta CNN’s chief medical correspondent apologized for ‘misleading’ the American public on weed saying he had mistakenly believed the DEA had sound scientific proof when it placed marijuana in the category of the most dangerous drugs. He acknowledge the hypocrisy and apologized. This helped usher in a new phase of legitimacy for the sacred plant.
Sayer Ji: so you see the change in the mainstream media. Dr. Sanjay Gupta did a documentary that it is an essential part of treating a lot of conditions from epileptic seizures to cancer. We are seeing the medical establishment coming around; ultimate the medical system’s goal is that of reducing human suffering. They cannot ignore this plant any longer.
Alice O’Leary Randall: without question Sanjay Gupta’s has had an impact on the medical cannabis issue. He said that America has been terribly and systematically led for 70 years. This is what we need to start hearing from federal officials and we need more people with the authority and standing of Sanjay Gupta to come forward and say that it is time for a change. It is not a simple matter.
John: the federal government has been legally providing cannabis for a number of years now. This is hard to believe but it is true. Irvin Rosenfeld received a monthly supply of cannabis cigarettes from the federal government’s cannabis garden at the University of Mississippi. He is one of the few living patients who receives him cannabis today. Alice O’Leary’s husband Bob Randall also received medical cannabis directly from the federal government. Alice and Bob challenged the federal government in court for years to get access to this plant for his glaucoma.
Alice: I have been called the First Lady of Medical Marijuana and the reason is that my late husband Robert Randall is the acknowledged founder of the medical marijuana movement in America. Robert was a glaucoma patient who was diagnosed at a very young age of 24 and was told he would be blind by the time he was 30. he accidentally discovered that marijuana seemed to help his vision. Through the period of trial and error her proved it to himself and proved it to me. we did what we could to keep ourselves in supply. But there were periods of ‘drought’ and that is when we really knew it was helping him. In august 1975 we were arrested for cultivating marijuana in Washington DC. We thought we were the only ones in the universe who knew that marijuana had medical use. We told nobody else and we did not research on it. we just knew it was helping Robert. Within a few weeks of getting arrested we did research and discovered that cannabis had a very long and distinguished history.
Alice: We found out there was a study going on at UCLA that we were able to get Robert into and it proved without a shadow of a doubt that when marijuana was added to his regular medications it was the one that was lowering his eye pressure into the safe range. On that basis we built a court case and beat the charges against us on the basis of medical necessity Robert also petitioned the federal government for permission to use their supplies of marijuana. They said they would give them to him but he couldn’t talk about it. Robert was a graduate with a degree in debate and a masters’ degree in rhetoric. There was no way he was going to be quiet about it. He got his supply and immediately started talking about it. It was big news and he started getting calls right away from other patients and bit by bit the movement was born.
Alice: the government grows a 5 acre plot at the University of Mississippi and they claim they have been doing that from the late 60s to facilitate physiological research with respect to marijuana. So they grow it there and ship it to the Research Triangle Institute in North Carolina where it is rolled into cigarettes. At one time in this country there were 34 state laws between 1978 and 1981 that recognized marijuana’s medical value and sought to do state research using federal supplies of marijuana. We thought this was great and would end the question ‘does marijuana have medical value.’ It was going the proper route and we were told it had to be the proper route. It turns out the federal government didn’t want to let the states have their supplies and I don’t think they wanted the question answered. I still don’t think they want the question answered. The AIDS crisis really accelerated the interest in medical marijuana because it was so useful to AIDS patients primarily and most visually as an appetite stimulant. The AIDS patients kept telling us that it was doing something more. I still think it was stimulating their immune system and I think it was helping them tremendously. At one time we were able to get the number of people receiving federal marijuana up to fifteen.
Alice: then the federal government decided that was enough compassion and they shut that program down. There was huge public outrage that the federal government would shut down the only means where critically ill people could get access to marijuana. The government totally underestimated the anger that would come about as a result of that closure. The federal government had a chance to control this. But they were very stupid and very cruel as they still are when it comes to medical marijuana.
Irwin Rosenfeld: I was the second patient to receive marijuana from the federal government and my protocol started in 1982. I have been getting 10 cigarettes a day for almost 30 years. It is adequate; I am not going to say that it is top notch because it is not. but it works and that is all I care about. It was for bone tumors and an anti=inflammatory for pain and to keep the tumors from growing. I don’t get ‘high’ off any cannabis. it was of a better quality I might be able to ingest less in a day. I’m thankful to have it. I am one of the few people in this country who can travel with a schedule 1 drug and not have a problem doing so. Bob Randall and Alice were writing a book when he died in 2001 and wrote Marijuana Rx The Patients’ Fight for Medicinal Pot. If I did not have my cannabis medicine I would not be alive today; I am sure of that. If I were alive I’d most likely be homebound. it is definitely ironic that the federal government has been putting people in jail for the last 33 years and even before that while they have been giving me this tin can of marijuana every 25 to 35 days. It is an irony that I can use it legally and am not a problem to society. And it is illegal for everyone else in the country.
John you have seen the heartbreaking truth of how cannabis went from being a legal medicine to a ‘street drug.’ I hope this side of the history helps you understand the foundation of why things are the way they are. You have seen the mistruths and deception that have been deployed to leave people confused and afraid rather than empowered. We don’t know how long this information will be available so please share this widely with others.
Mike Adams: under the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry humanity has only become more sick and demented with more cancer and heart disease, brain disorders, Alzheimer’s and psychiatric disorders, a lower quality of life and less awareness and awakening. It is because we have been deprived access to these natural medicines and incredible molecules from the natural world. They make chemical medicine obsolete.
Chris Wark: The biggest problem I see in the medical industry is that patients are made to be powerless. that is not true. 90% of the diseases in the western world are western diseases that are caused by our diet, lifestyle and environment. when you realize that then you h=should also realize that your choices matter. That is my message and the most important message of this series.
Amber Lyon: I think western medicine has taken our power from healing ourselves away from us. it is disempowering and it makes you think that you must go to a doctor and you must take this prescription medication to heal. That is what the industry wants you to think; when you go to them then your money transfers to them as well. the beauty of these plants is very empowering. When you know you can grow plants naturally in your backyard for free or almost for free and then heal yourself. It drove me crazy as a journalist to go and see so many people suffering and to know that people are suffering day in and day out and being denied access or even a choice as to whether or not to consume these medicines. It is horrific and it costing lives and I think it is a human rights tragedy.
In Episode 2 we will learn the secrets of the endocannabinoids system in our body that plays a role in almost all diseases and we will explain why the discovery of the endogenous system that produces our own internal cannabinoids was a game changer for researchers. we will talk about one of the most deadly plagues today — the opioid epidemic. There are currently over 100deaths per day from opioid overdoses. What if I told you the sacred plant could reverse those statistics. We will meet patients whose lives were destroyed by opioid pain medications until they discovered cannabis. These patients include NFL players and celebrated physicists. You will be amazed to see how they control their pain and reclaim their lives. We will also check in with stage 4 Lung Cancer patient Patricia Crone to see if she was able to find a source of cannabis to treat her advanced cancer.
John: you will also learn some vital truth in the upcoming episode.
Mike Adams: our world today has so much sickness and suffering and much of it is not necessary. By supporting this documentary series and watching it and sharing it with others you may be able to save your own life or enhance and protect the lives of others whom you love and know.
