Prior to the outlawing of cannabis in 1937, major pharmaceutical companies produced a wide variety of cannabis-based medicines, but cannabis has actually been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Although it has a long history, the recent discovery (1992) of the body's widespread endocannabinoid system (ECS) has thrust cannabis back into the limelight again as a viable medicine. In 2012 over 2.5 million prescriptions were written for medical marijuana in the United States. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis. However, while THC produces a “high” in the user, CBD does not. And now legal CBD-rich hemp oil is available over-the-counter in all 50 states, without a prescription. It was discovered that the Hemp Family of plants (cannabis, marijuana) is loaded with cannabinoids that stimulate our ECS receptor sites. These sites are found in the brain, organs, glands, connective tissue and immune cells and plays regulatory roles in many physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The primary purpose of this system revolves around maintaining balance in the body. Cannabinoids found in all varieties of cannabis work in harmony with the cannabinoids we naturally produce when our system is functioning properly. It is now coming to light that we may very well be “Endocannabinoid Deficient” and supplementing with Cannabidiol, known as CBD, may provide just what we're missing to restore optimum health. The health benefits of cannabidiol (CBD) from natural hemp oil is this book's primary focus. It explores the similarities, differences, uses and benefits of hemp, cannabis and medical marijuana along with the interplay of THC and CBD. Their 480 other components are also discussed, such as terpenoids, flavonoids, enzymes, vitamins, etc. Make no mistake about it, the endocannabinoid system, although newly discovered, is just as important as any other bodily system, like the muscular, cardiac, circulatory or digestive system. The ECS requires its own specialized medicine as found in the Hemp Family of plants, which is also known as cannabis, and which includes all strains of marijuana. Here is a list of conditions known and/or being researched that may be helped by cannabinoid therapeutics and supplementation: Acne ADD/ADHD Addiction AIDS ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) Alzheimer's Anorexia Antibiotic Resistance Anxiety Atherosclerosis Arthritis Asthma Autism Bipolar Cancer Colitis/Crohn's Depression Diabetes Endocrine Disorders Epilepsy/Seizure Fibromyalgia Glaucoma Heart Disease Huntington's Inflammation Irritable Bowel Kidney Disease Liver Disease Metabolic Syndrome Migraine Mood Disorders Motion Sickness Multiple Sclerosis Nausea Neurodegeneration Neuropathic Pain Obesity OCD Osteoporosis Parkinson's Prion/Mad Cow Disease PTSD Rheumatism Schizophrenia Sickle Cell Anemia Skin Conditions Sleep Disorders Spinal Cord Injury Stress Stroke/TBI 10% of the proceeds from sales of this book will be donated to the American Cannabis Nurses Association in an effort to bring together nurses, to share, integrate and one day certify nurses in the science of endocannabinoid therapeutics in nursing practice.

CBD (cannabidiol) is a component of cannabis that can provide relief for conditions such as seizures, pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, arthritis, and a number of other issues. This book offers guidance on various forms of the medicine such as oil infusions, alcohol-based tinctures, capsules, and CO2 concentrated extracts. The information is organized by health condition and also by recommended CBD-rich strains, which do not produce the "highs" associated with THC. With dosage suggestions, potential side effects and contraindications, and the pharmacology of the plant, this is an essential guide for both doctors and patients looking for a nontoxic alternative to opiate-based pain medications and other pharmaceuticals. The authors present case studies, interviews with doctors who prescribe cannabidiol products, and the latest research regarding other active phytocannabinoids and terpenoids present in cannabis that are being studied for medical use. They also address the difference between CBD products derived from industrial hemp or in a lab, versus those made from medical marijuana using the whole plant. In addition to offering the most up-to-date and comprehensive information on CBD-dominant cannabis therapy for humans, this book is the first to offer guidance for using the medicine for animals, with suggestions for dosage and delivery and useful forms and strains for common health issues in pets. Finally, the authors take a look at the future of cannabis medicine, charting trends in the legalization movement and suggesting how CBD might be used to fight the opioid epidemic.

The Healing Effects of CBD Rich Hemp Oil Make Your Own CBD Oil at Home How to Extract, Use, and Heal with Cannabis Medicine I first learned about the medicinal benefits of marijuana through a Dutch friend who was born and raised in the Netherlands where marijuana has been legal for many years now. It was 1994 when I first got interested in learning more about the healing effects of marijuana, but not much data was available back then, as the internet was just in its infancy at that time. As a self-proclaimed Naturopathic healer, my interest just grew over time. Around the end of 1996, when California legalized marijuana for medical use, I was finally able to get more research data on the topic. For some reason, I always had this belief that marijuana holds a big secret under its leaves most of which we just haven't discovered yet. At first, Marijuana was only used as a painkiller in the medical field as a last resort for terminal patients that were suffering from AIDS, Cancer, and other such deadly illnesses. But after 2005, that started to change in a big way, researchers and doctors started seeing the true medicinal value of marijuana and the healing effects of its various ingredients like THC, CBD and Hemp oil. It was like opening a floodgate, so much started to pour in and so fast that it was truly overwhelming for most researchers. I too was consumed and overwhelmed with all the information. But I am sure some of you may not know all these details but most of you should remember when Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN did a medical breakthrough program of a 5 years old girl in New Jersey that was suffering from an acute case of Epilepsy where she was having 6-10 seizures a day and on modern medicine could stop that. Long story short, when the parents found out about the new marijuana-derived medical research, they took their daughter and started the new treatment immediately. Only after a few dosages, she began to recover, and from 10 seizures a day she is now down to one or two minor ones maybe once a month! Just imagine the power of Marijuana. My goal in this book is to share some proven facts about marijuana, and by facts, I mean the healing power and actual medicinal value of this plant, nothing more. I share what and how you can find healing through Cannabis-derived CBD oil. Now that Cannabis is being legal is many states, it is much easier to find these medicines without going outside the country. Lastly, before I get started, next time you vote, if you see an option for legalizing marijuana or medical or otherwise, please vote Yes and let's bring healing to everyone in every state, country and eventually in this great world of ours. In This Book I Show You: How Marijuana works in our body How CBD Works in our body 16 deadly diseases Cannabis can Heal How to Extract CBD oil from a Marijuana plant What are the 10 Most Popular CBD Therapy What is the proper Dosage for CBD Oil Exact dosage guideline for various illness and disorder What and how to buy the right type CBD 10 things to look for when choosing cannabis medicine 3 Ways to identify bad or fake CBD products The law regarding CBD and other Cannabis products True Testimonial of patients and users What the Doctors say about CBD Oil If this book can help heal even one person, I would consider my work a success. Thank you!
Chapter 9 features cannabis as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-cancerous, anti-seizure, anti-spasmodic, anti-anxiety, and bone growth promoter when used in applied cannabinoid therapy in dentistry. It is no secret that treating patients with medical cannabis remains a misunderstood and controversial topic to many. A new word has been coined in the cannabis industry for those who still fear using cannabis: cannaphobia. Contributing to professional cannaphobia are the wide ranges of laws concerning medical cannabis. The laws seem disorganized, ambiguous, and confusing, not only from state to state, but from state to federal level as well. Many practitioners feel they may face trouble from the authorities if they recommend cannabis. On top of this, many practitioners have a lack of understanding of how medical cannabis works. Anyone who absorbs the information in this book will be able to hold his or her own in any conversation on the topic of medical cannabis. To be totally honest, I speak to many nurses and doctors who work in a completely allopathic setting, and they are clueless about medical cannabis, especially in the states where it is not as yet legal. This is understandable; however, it's probably not acceptable, in light of the fact that millions of people use cannabis as medicine. I think, as servants to the public, we need to ensure that our medical knowledge reflects the needs and reality of the public, not the other way around. A lack of knowledge about a medicine is not good form, especially in light of cannabis becoming one of the most significant medicines of our time and one of the most popular with the public. EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 6: Neuro Biological Aspects of Medicinal Cannabis and Chronic Pain My clinical background has been rounded out from more than thirty years of hospital-based nursing and working as a medical massage therapist and biofeedback therapist in the clinical office setting. I was first licensed as a massage therapist in 1980 and then graduated nursing school in 1985. I received my biofeedback and psychiatric nursing certifications in 1989. During my thirty-plus years as a massage therapist, I have easily performed thousands of medical massage therapy and clinical biofeedback sessions. I did not mention in my bio that I also did medical massage therapy out of Dr. Jhaveri's medical office in Middletown, New York. It was when working with Dr. Jhaveri that I received my most intensive training in the psychophysiological aspects of stress and pain management. Also, in the summer of 1985, I was a massage therapist at Grossinger's Resort and Country Club in the Catskill Mountains in New York. I received a lot of invaluable training there from Grossinger's longtime resident masseur, a French physical therapist named Jules Bonnefin, PT, MsT. It was in the day-to-day work, apprenticing with the masters such as Jules and Dr. Jhavari, that I learned my trade. Massage therapists tune into muscles, and muscles at the basic.. END This book was written by best-selling cannabis nurse-author, Steven Leonard-Johnson, RN, PhD, who co-wrote "CBD-Rich Hemp Oil: Cannabis Medicine is Back." His book hit #1 in eleven countries on Amazon's best seller list in the category of psychopharmacology. This book, written by an ANCC board certified psychiatric nurse, is of the same caliber, yet goes even deeper into the psycho-physiological and neuro-biological mechanisms of medical cannabis. Steven's latest book is written with social consciousness in mind. He invited Vietnam Veteran Lieutenant Commander Al Byrne, USN, ret., to write the foreword of this book. By doing so, Lieutenant Commander Byrne has done an exquisite job in presenting a solid rationale for providing medical cannabis to Veterans. This is a powerful book designed to bring forth social change for a more compassionate society.

Have you heard of CBD ( also known as Cannabidiol) Oil? If you have, you probably already know about its healing properties and medicinal value. Being a strong believer in the goodness of CBD Hemp Oil, author Christopher Knowles feels compelled to bring the truth to the surface. In his book "CBD Hemp Oil", he explains in depth the many benefits of this healing oil in disease treatment. Research has shown that there are two main components of Marijuana that are showing promising results for the treatment of many medical conditions. The two main components that are showing promising results include: THC and Cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive ingredient that will not cause people to "get high". Cannabidiol is the component that can be extracted from the different areas of the plant including both the marijuana portion and the hemp portion and is offering promising results in treating rare medical conditions. Cannabidiol is also offering promising results in treating those medical conditions in which traditional therapies have failed. Some disorders that Cannabidiol Oil is showing benefits in managing include: arthritis, diabetes, pain, anxiety, mental health disorders, epilepsy, and cancer. In the subcategory of mental health disorders, there are: depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, and others. Christopher Knowles makes the many benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) from natural hemp the main emphasis of his book "CBD Hemp Oil" Although many are weary of the mast use of this oil, the author strives to educate by offering a different perspective.

This comprehensive sourcebook combines evidence-based insights from more than 1,000 studies from cannabinoid and consciousness research to present a convincing case for the powerful healing effects of medical marijuana on over 100 chronic symptoms and diseases. Written by a former paramedic with a PhD in alternative healthcare, this in-depth reference shows that the subtle shifts in awareness commonly observed in cannabis-using patients vastly contribute to these compounds' therapeutic potential. The Cannabis Health Index is organized into condition-specific chapters, with eye-catching ratings of cannabis efficacy for each symptom, along with recommendations for use, and sidebars that suggest related mindfulness-based practices that enhance the body's own ability to heal. Organized alphabetically from aging to wound care, with sections on a variety of conditions including infections, cancer, cardiovascular health, eye diseases, inflammatory diseases, neurological diseases, and much more, the Index reveals that the huge body of scientific studies focused on cannabis is a tremendously under-utilized repository of knowledge. In synthesizing the findings of these studies, Blesching brings clarity to the process of making informed decisions about cannabis as a valid treatment. Informative, user-friendly, and practical, The Cannabis Health Index presents striking evidence that cannabis is remarkable safe and effective when used within the proper therapeutic window, especially compared with the risks of managing chronic symptoms with pharmaceuticals.
#1 Book on Cannabis Oil Typically, people would advise us not to self-medicate with cannabis oil but after studies have been made when it comes to the effects it has on different illnesses, even that belief is slowly being overturned. From nausea, pains, cramps to even cancer, cannabis oil certainly has a number of different medical benefits that you might want to acquaint yourself with. People who live with chronic pain, spastic movements, tremors as well as those who battle with cancer and have been suffering from nausea can certainly benefit from the use of Cannabis and cannabis oil. There is now scientific evidence to back up the radical claim that the plant and some of its by-products have certain medical benefits despite its notoriety as a recreational drug. It has already been proven to provide certain benefits when it comes to pain; to the point where it is also prescribed (medical marijuana) to people who are undergoing chemotherapy and other related medical procedures. It is also known to have an effect on neurological disorders and in recent studies, is shown to be capable of killing cancer cells. But what is the truth behind all of these claims? In this book, you'll learn more about its effects and how you can put cannabis oil to use.
