90% of doctors don’t know about the endocannabinoid system

Little is known and taught about the endocannabinoid system. Much like our hormonal system, it plays an active, vital role in maintaining our health. Dr. Mechoulam, one of Israel’s greatest sons, discovered the system in the 1990’s. Not only do our bodies have receptor sites cued just for cannabinoids, our bodies actually produce them internally. The active ingredients in cannabis naturally complement this system which affects pain, inflammation and our immune system. It is suspected that many illnesses are caused by a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system. In the following years of research the true insanity of the war on cannabis will be known. Smoking cannabis over a 20 year period reduces the risk of diabetes by 66%. There is no medication currently on the market that can compete with this.
Basically, whether you are using cannabis for fun or as a medicine, you are receiving the health benefits in your endocannabinoid system anyway. This is great news for a health conscious society but bad news for big pharma, the law enforcement and alcohol industries. The short video below gives us a first glance at this system.

Drink alcohol you pussy

Drinking alcohol is an acceptable vice. Cannabis, just to remind you, is an evil, corrupting activity. If you look at the American intoxicant landscape, the big alcohol drug pushers are the good old boys just  giving America a little fun on the side. At this point it is useful if you actually have a glass of vodka because it makes the rest of  the argument a little easier to swallow. Violence, both domestic and random acts, are inspired by booze. Mayhem on a Friday night ending with a bunch of half wits standing around filming out of control child adults in an almost ritualistic fashion. But just to be clear, alcohol is the good drug. It has been at the heart of every Super Bowl and American holiday. Yes it is true that it is viewed as a poison by your body. If you can’t break it down and expel it quickly enough then you my friend, will die. Alcohol is addictive and promotes the rotting of ones insides in a slow, meandering way. But in fairness to the drug, it can be fun and relaxing if you only have a few glasses.

If you consume a well grown cannabis sativa strain then you will have a similar buzz to a few drinks. Being talkative and social are side effects of the plant. Happiness rather than aggression is promoted and while you are blissfully chatting with friends the plant is healing the inside of your body. Sounds like a good deal right! You get to relax and have a little healthy, stress free fun. Maybe it might be helpful for the reader to have another glass of vodka at this point. You see, the bad drug (alcohol) is actually sold as being good, and the good drug (cannabis) is labeled as bad/wrong/evil/dangerous/immoral. We have had our minds made up for us with years of cynical propaganda. Yesterday’s alcohol prohibition criminals are today’s upstanding members of society. Forget about Al Capone, now slick boardrooms are filled by money loving capitalists who have grown fat on the legal alcohol heist.

The anti pot side (the dark side) have given up trying to have a sensible debate. Before the internet we had limited access to real information but since the turn of the new century we have been surfing an information tsunami. From our sweet government’s point of view, we have a dangerous amount of knowledge. The free internet debate is the first attempt to limit the uninhibited flow of information. Back in the last century  government and corporations monopolized what we heard and read. Today, smart arse punks like praguepot can deliver science and facts that compete with corporate propaganda. While we don’t have the same budget at praguepot, we do have access to the same knowledge.

We don’t need more proof. Government is lying to us and are dead wrong to enforce cannabis prohibition. Medical marijuana is real. Expensive medication that is toxic for our bodies can be replaced by the plant in many cases. Last night this writer went to bed with a pain in his lower back. I took a cookie before falling asleep knowing that the powerful anti inflammatory nature of the herb would take the pain away and begin to quickly sooth the problem. Today, not only was the sun shining, but the pain and stiffness was gone. This is a tiny personal example of what the plant does. From chronic pain sufferers to cancer patients, the plant promotes the healing of damaged bodies. For recreational users, organically grown cannabis is an excellent health supplement. Studies show it protects the brain and promotes Neurogenesis (grows new brain cells). It is not weird or wrong to choose pot over alcohol, it is the evolved, smart choice.

Our world is full of violence and aggression, ironically the plant that promotes the opposite emotions has been attacked with aggressive ignorance. We owe future generations a better world than the warring, polluted planet we have today. We need change, a move away from capitalist inspired ideals of greed and isolating hate. Today’s decision to get involved leads to tomorrows unstoppable momentum, so get busy reading and then get active in your local area.

Cannabis use lowers the risk of cancer

cannabis cancer

One in three people will get cancer in their life time. One in three, that is scary. A little more terrifying is the knowledge that right now, we all have cancerous cells in our bodies. It is a normal thing apparently and mostly the cancerous cells die because they don’t get a supply of food via access to blood nutrients. However, if the cancerous cells form near blood, you will get a tumor. Next stop, chemo therapy, long distressing nights trying to understand how your own body is trying to kill you and a constant battle with panic. Cancer is one of the greatest threats to your health. Processed food, wifi, tobacco, alcohol, a lack of exercise, and the general stress of this modern life all contribute to the growth of cancer. The way modern science deals with cancer is to burn, poison or simply cut the tumor out. Not very advanced, but it saves lives.

As the veil of ignorance and propaganda is being lifted on cannabis, it is becoming increasingly clear, that cannabis is a rock star for cancer prevention. The latest scientific research points out that cancer lowers the risk of getting bladder cancer. So not only do pot smokers get to enjoy the effects of cannabis when they consume it, their choice of intoxicant can literally save them from cancer. Why is there a need for any more discussion? Scientific report after scientific report points to the cancer fighting property of the plant. A tiny dose of cannabis in your system(not enough to get you high even) can help you maintain a healthy, well functioning body. Add in some exercise and good clean food to ensure the best chance of a healthy, long life. We don’t need any more proof that cannabis is a wonder herb. Not only that, but the plant has clearly shown that our politicians don’t give a damn about our health. Way back in 1974 the American government knew cannabis kills cancer cells but did nothing about it. Today, we have the Internet. This blog and many others are hammering home the simple truth that cannabis is a healthy, powerful medicine that also gives you the giggles. Powerful business interests wants to keep the public away from pot, it is up to each of us to get educated and then get active on this subject!

Cannabis is healthy for you

Organically grown cannabis is healthy for you. There are zero medical or scientific reasons why marijuana is illegal. Prohibition works for big pharmaceutical companies, alcohol companies and law enforcement agencies that like the look of the pot arrest numbers. Cannabis doesn’t hurt people, the law making it illegal does.

The video is testimonials from medical marijuana patients. What more do we need to do to convince people that cannabis is safe and healthy to use, especially when you compare it to alcohol!
