Neil - I'm not sure you should write off everything jbw says on this topic. It's like you would rather take the evolution approach to health and wellness. Believe me - their approach always goes in the wrong direction. Yes, as long as we have had dainties we have had people with over eating issues. I cant help but think of Eglon in Judges 3 and these verses from Proverbs 23:2-3 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
But the issue i see doesent end with how much you eat. Its a part of it - but it stands to reason if God made us and he made food for us - introducing a glutt of synthetic chemical flavors, preservatives, anti foaming agents and on and on....we would experence amplified health issues.
I have also recieved much health help from the weston price foundation and their work.
Thanks, JPW. Fortunately, or unfortunately, they had already exhausted all known medication interventions and we had exhausted invasive interventions. They gave me one more experimental option that would have become a living nightmare - electric implants in my neck with wire leads going to a box outside my body. Can you imagine the horror if I or someone else accidentally pulled the wires and ends out of my neck? They warned it could cause permanent damage. Or......i eat a plant the Good Lord made and in a few months....off all meds and pain free....
Hi US - I wanted to make sure you knew one of the most important facts about cannabis. There are dozens of active cannabinoids that make up the plants chemical profile. Of these cannabinoids - only the THC produces a "high" and the others like CBD dont. But the THC is heat activated - if eaten raw the THC remains in an INACTIVE form of THCa (meaning acid). If eaten raw - the plant would be medicinal without mental effects. This is what cures and heals - eating. We have receptors for these cannabinoids in nearly every body system and it did it fact put into remission what had been years out of control. When others, when they had been smoking or vaporizing, switch to eating raw - medical miracles happen. It seems contrary to conventional wisdom - but then again - they are wrong!
Now on the topic of smoking and driving - yes, there is a degree of impairment. But you cant directly compare it to anything else. For example - for a period of two years they prescribed me 400mg of morphine a day along with many other meds and nobody batted an eye. I am much more concered about thoes that have multiple meds in their system causing a brew of toxic soup. I would look out for them - and in america - that is almost every car on the road.
The key to the medicinal powers comes from eating the plant raw, not by smoking it. This angers me as i recieved healing by eating the plant raw. Meanwhile the finger gets pointed at the "pot heads" and christians accept the governments argument againt the plant. It is an herb in the truest definition of the word and should not be written off. I know enough people that tried the conventional route and endec up with fistfulls of medications that exasperated their conditions. Like me, medical interventions nearly killed them. Tylenol, for example, is toxic in sustained high doses. My labs reflected a struggling liver and i was told i had a one way ticket to the grave.
Please dont just look at smokers and think thats what its all about - eaten raw like the food that it is can heal cancers and many other "un-treatable" conditions like i had. Look into it.
