There really is no way to measure how many people and pets die each year from not just a lack of access to critical medicine, but lack of ability in a mental capacity. There are many veterans, doctors, nurses, people of all walks of life that could benefit from the Cannabis/Hemp plant, but have mental blocks that prevent them. Hemp is not even a psychoactive plant!
You don’t need a prescription to buy CBD Oil. Most companies guarantee that their CBD Oil does not contain more than .03% THC. You can even get CBD Oil with NO THC in it, (that is the subject of our next blog.) Then why does everyone who needs it not have it?
Part of it is the stigma, the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 began with the DEA’s made up word ‘Marijuana’ combining the most popular Mexican girl’s name, ‘Mary’ and the most popular Mexican boy’s name, ‘Juan’ and made up the word, ‘Marijuana.’ Doctors referred to it as Cannabis, in pharmacopeia, it was referred to as Cannabis and was recorded as used for insomnia and pain in 1920’s pharmacopeia. Noone knew what Marijuana was, and that is why Dr. Woodward from the AMA (American Medical Association) is on record confirming that if they had known it was Cannabis that they were trying to prohibit, that they would have fought the prohibition of Cannabis as it removed a valuable tool from their toolbox.
At the last show I was at in Plymouth, MA, a gentleman stopped and told me that his mother fought against Hemp! And he was pretty adamant about it and proud maybe even, too. I felt like he was confused and confirmed that Hemp had no psychoactive component to it and that maybe it was Cannabis she fought against. ‘Yea, she fought against that, too,’ he said. ‘But you don’t get high off Hemp, before people started making CBD Oil, Hemp was a fiber, it was an industrial product, why would she fight against it?’ ‘I don’t know why,’ he said, ‘but she did, with her purse and her high heels.’
How misguided are we?! It’s just like my mom’s friend, my mom is trying to tell her that CBD Oil could help some of her issues and she adamantly refuses and says she won’t have anything to do with pot or Marijuana! My mom is 82, so I get that alot from her generation. They were ‘scaremongered’ in a ‘Reefer Madness’ campaign that you can research for yourself and see how exactly they scared the public into forgetting about a valuable medicine and how by 1942 it was removed from pharmacopeia and was known as a menace instead of a medicine.
To be very clear, this is the ONLY substance on the planet that we have these receptors for. In other words, we are hardwired to receive from this plant, it is like software to our bodies that triggers healing. There are many health conditions that are known to man that we now know are Endocannabinoid deficiencies, meaning that we would not have these physical imbalances if we took CBD Oil. Plain and simple. When people take the Oil, there health issues fall away, one by one, or all together, at once, depending on the individual. It is SCIENCE, not religion, not belief, not hypocrisy, not heresay, it is TRUTH, whether you like it or not. And if you don’t, maybe the question to ask yourself is, ‘WHY?’
What is your resistance? What within you refuses to believe proven facts before you? What? You don’t believe that anyone would lie to you or create false truths? Especially, the media? If you truly are that naive, than I am here to wake you from your slumber and shake you if I have to! Some people seriously make me twist their arm so hard to just try it…and EVERYONE of them after they try it, look at me incredulously and say, ‘It doesn’t hurt anymore, that really works!!!’ Ofcourse it does, I’m not lying to you! I am trying to help you feel better, find relief without chemicals that will negatively or adversely affect other parts of your body or that will get you addicted. When my daughter was in a serious car accident years ago, they prescribed her meds and told her to, ‘be careful to not get addicted to them.’ Ofcourse, she didn’t, but I always wondered when Dr’s say that how you are supposed to, ‘be careful.’ Pretty sure when you take a pill you are prescribed you take as prescribed with like a drink or something….what is the proper way to take it and make sure you don’t get addicted? Our bodies are human, if it is an addictive substance, how do we make sure that we don’t get addicted? I mean, really, and then if you do, everyone says you’re a drug addict, but if you took your medicine as prescribed, than who’s fault is that? You were in pain, went to your Dr. and that’s what they give you. What else are you supposed to do? You believe your Dr., they are who you are paying to help you with your health issues. But if you get addicted, then you go to a different Dr. for that. What a disservice! I have learned not to judge and to find out the circumstances of a situation when you hear of drug abuse because pain is an awful thing to live with and if your own Dr. prescribes it for you, it must be ok, right?
Not so much…..
That’s why when I try to tell people in visible pain, ‘I have something that will make you feel better and they keep walking in the opposite direction, in pain, I can’t help but think to myself, ‘Believe me, it will hurt you alot more than me, if you don’t try my products….literally.’
