Cannabis: Myths & Facts

Over all, marijuana has gotten a bad name due to decades of prohibition and reefer madness-like thinking – in fact, the word “marijuana” was first used in U.S. policy during an effort to marginalize Mexican immigrants in the early 1900s. As our society works to help this misunderstood plant find its appropriate place in our laws , I recommend using its real name that dispels the myths about this incredible plant and invokes the truth made available by thousands of scientists and researchers: cannabis. Cannabis has a lot to offer humanity, and you deserve to know the truth.

STATE MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAWS

STATE MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAWS

In 1996, California voters passed Proposition 215, making the Golden State the first in the union to allow for the medical use of marijuana. Since then, 27 more states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico have enacted similar laws.

A total of 28 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico now allow for comprehensive public medical marijuana and cannabis programs.  Recently approved efforts in 17 states allow use of “low THC, high cannabidiol (CBD)” products for medical reasons in limited situations or as a legal defense. Those programs are not counted as comprehensive medical marijuana programs but are listed in Table 2. NCSL uses criteria similar to other organizations to determine if a program is “comprehensive”:

Juicing Medicinal Cannabis for Health

HOW TO SET UP A JUICING GARDEN

Many patients are familiar with the pungent aroma of smoked cannabis flower buds. For many new patients, smoking any plant material can be both difficult and unapproachable. Drinking a smoothie of cannabis is an easier transition into cannabinoid therapy than smoked cannabis. Juicing cannabis also avoids the addition of heat to the plant material, which preserves the beneficial cannabinoids patients are seeking.

NOW, HOW TO JUICE?

juicerAccording to HPRC, the preferred type of juicer is a masticating juicer. Masticating juicers do not heat up like centrifugal juicers, and blenders do not remove the plant material from the juice. HPRC suggests that patients can take the large fan leaves of the plant, the smaller leaves, and even add fresh buds if available. Collect the juice and use fresh, or pour into ice cube trays and freeze for future use. Many of the HPRC patients try to use about 1 ounce of  cannabis juice per day.
