LEAF [ The Health Benefits of Juicing Raw Cannabis ]
PLEASE SHARE this video with as many people as possible! With all the misconceptions about cannabis, we need to get this info out there to set things right! Thank-you!!! 😀
This video was made by: http://www.youtube.com/cbd600 and re-uploaded onto my channel because I wanted to help spread more awareness on the health benefits of raw cannabis (that is non-smoked & non-heated.) RAW cannabis is non-psychoactive, meaning it will not get you high.
Raw cannabis= Immune modulating, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-tumor/ anti-cancer, pain-relieving, anti-diabetic, antispasmodic, anti-anxiety and so much more!
****ABOUT THIS VIDEO****
Leaf introduces Dr. William Courtney and Kristen Peskuski of Cannabis International; along with the people involved in researching, promoting, regulating and benefiting from raw cannabis.
Dr. Courtney is a physician and researcher from Mendocino, California, who gives medical marijuana approvals to qualified patients in Mendocino and Humboldt Counties. Kristen Peskuski is a researcher and patient who put her systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial cystitis, and numerous other conditions into remission juicing fresh cannabis.
They help make sense of the science behind patient’s recoveries from a diverse range of medical conditions. Attorneys, physicians, law enforcement, medical care providers, patients and their families discuss their experiences with medical cannabis. They specifically focus on juicing fresh cannabis, which is non-psychoactive and contains medical properties 200-400 times stronger than traditional, heated cannabis.

Deana Martinez Patient Story
Medical marijuana patient and advocate Deana Martinez discusses how her quality of life has dramatically increased for her and her family now that medical cannabis has been introduced into her AIDS treatment. Deana is also an advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention and has been featured in local Denver media. Transcript to follow: Hello my name is Deana Martinez. And on December 2, 2008 I found out that I had advanced AIDS. That is when I began to educate myself as far as cannabis and its medical benefits. I had 21 surgeries, they began when I was 18 and I had never been tested for HIV. I had injections for 3 ½ years, every 6 weeks, into various parts of my body due to nerve condition, pain, we thought. And had no idea. So I just got really sick. Got sicker and sicker. They tested me and came back and told me that I was HIV positive but they thought I was much sicker than that. And needed to have me checked. So I went and did a test and on December 2nd I found out that I had 12 T-cells. And for those that are familiar with T-cells, and what that means, it meant that I was in full-blown AIDS. The advanced stages, and I was very sick at the time. So that’s when they told me that I was in the advanced stages I needed to get things taken care of, that I would never see 100 T-cells, come home and prepare my son, take the meds and we’ll see what happens. And so that’s what I did. I came home and told my son. Prepared him, at 16, for me to die. Prepared myself to die. Started to take the medicine. I had used marijuana prior. I started using it in probably about ’99 medically, with all the surgeries and everything, so nausea, vomiting, and those types of things. So I had been using it that way, that capacity, but that was about it, as far as medically, really it was just the nausea and vomiting. So it might work here. So I started educating myself about AIDS, and I started educating myself about marijuana. And that’s kind of brought me to where I’m. Granted I’ve been in corporate America since 1984, not something I go around advertizing that marijuana is part of my life. But not until extreme sickness came my way, did I learn the benefits of, and the medical use of it. Not just the nausea and it will help you eat. The true value of the medicine. I started working with a caregiver; I started learning about the medicine. I was going through so many symptoms at that point. I was so sick. That I was looking to anything. The doctors were, here’s meds, here’s meds, here’s meds. It’s like these are making me worse. I have other side effects to deal with. I have gone from massive narcotic doses of Oxicontin 60mg every 4 hours for 3 ½ years. To detoxing cold turkey off that, to Vicodin. And then Vicodin 6 to 8 a day, the big ones, and now with my cannabis use, I take 1. I learn something new about this industry everyday. And it’s a new benefit. Whether that’s to me personally, that’s sick, or whether that’s a child where that’s helping them with their Autism, or a senior person who’s finally able to hold food down the first time in months. To someone who has experienced menstrual cramps like you would not believe, and now they don’t have to live on Advil and rip up other parts of their body. So then I started learning more, what are these pharmaceutical drugs doing to my body? Just started scaring me. And having my physician then say, honey it’s a great idea and I’m willing to work with you guys to figure it out, meaning my caregiver and me. So that’ what we did. Ok, I’ve got nausea, vomiting, intestinal issues, some anxiety, various things going on with my body. Let’s see if we can’t medicate. So I learned that I could have a piece of candy first, and then I could take the meds that were going to save my life. But I could start eliminating some that were causing problems. So to go from 18 medications and 52 pills a day, I’m down to (counting) 12 pills a day, and 1 Vicodin. So but it is only through cannabis I’ve been able to do that. That’s only trough learning. Use the candy when I can’t swallow or when I am gagging. Or tincture oil when I am in a lot of pain. Then at other times I can vaporize which will keep it during the day and work and be productive and so forth. And be able to get out of the bathroom. Which is where I spent all my time at first. So I have been able to learn different ways of medicating myself, hand in hand with my physician, and whittled my meds down and go from 12 T-cells to 430 as of December 1, 2010.
Medical Marijuana Patient and Advocate Jason Lauve
Cannabis Health News Magazine publisher and medical marijuana patient / advocate Jason Lauve discovers at 2010 Patients Out of Time Conference how cannabidiol (CBD) is the cannabinoid that works best for him. Since becoming a medical marijuana patient, after consuming ‘large amounts of cannabis’ he no longer has to take any other form of medicine and now has a better quality of life than before his accident. Transcript to follow: My name is Jason Lauve I’m from Boulder Colorado. I have been a medical marijuana patient for about 5 years now. I use cannabis for my pain and muscle spasms. I found that about 2 years after my accident, being on heavy narcotics, opiates of all sorts. I was on Tramadol, Neurontin, Vicodin, and Oxycodone, the list goes on and on. Over that period of time I felt that I lost who I was. I was depressed, extremely anxious, I was angry at everything, and really just didn’t want to do anything. I didn’t perform well at work. And so my life wasn’t really wasn’t where it should have been. Quality of life was unacceptable really to me, and my family, my friends around me. I found that cannabis really made a huge difference for me. My neurologist and I had long conversation about 2 years in, after my accident. And he suggested I try cannabis. And so I started to ingest large amounts of cannabis, large amounts according to the law enforcement later on down the road. But that started to make a huge difference. I was able to decrease my opiate intake, and all the other pharmaceuticals, my stomach felt better, I felt clearer in my head, I was able to think, I started to perform better at work, my appraisals at work got better. And so actually just recently I’ve stopped taking all of my pain medications. I’m off of Oxycodone, off of Vicodin, off of Tramadol, off of my Neurontin, I don’t use the patches I used to use, so on and so forth. These last few weeks have been phenomenal for me. I feel like I am clearer in my head. I feel like I can move around more, the pain sucks, the muscle spasticity is being mitigated by the cannabis. I do feel better, I can function, but I feel like I am able to have a quality of life, which is absolutely fantastic. I know it sounds weird, but it almost seems that it is better now than before my accident. I think it is just because that I have learned to live with cannabis as my pain mitigator. And it also helps me get to sleep, which is a big deal, with muscle spasms trough the night, normally can ‘t sleep with that. But it’s really worked out for me over the last three years. And so for the last three years I’ve still tried to figure out what works. Specifically, what was really exciting for me at this conference is however, that we see data now that proves that CBD’s are very valuable as a cannabinoid. And that THC, we all know has some value to it medicinally, but it’s not the predominate cannabinoid that I need for myself at least. And so this is just reinforcing my own experience, my own anecdotal data if you will
Medical Cannabis Testimonies: KCPatient of Missouri
This first ever Patient Protection Day 2008 statewide lobbying event video was recorded in the Jefferson City Capital Building Rotunda. The stage and sound system were generously provided by the University of Missouri Columbia. This patient is from Kansas City. She has been battling Autoimmune diseases most of her life; Lupus and Crohn’s, to name only two. In 28 years, she has suffered more than most of us have ever dreamed of. Cannabis has brought her unfailing relief from pain and other symptoms during her many struggles. During this day-long event, we met with Missouri Speaker of the House, Rod Jetton, who blocked our Cannabis Compassion Bill in 2007 and was making every effort to block it again for 2008. Though, on the day of this event, he recanted his position while meeting with chronically ill patients and supporters in his office, he later killed HB1830 by appointing it to a do-nothing committee too late in the session for it to go anywhere. Fortunately for Missouri’s chronically ill, Rod Jetton will not be returning to Missouri’s House in 2009. Missourians should guard themselves against slick opportunists like Jetton who say they care, but in reality show little regard for the chronically ill of their state.

Cerebral palsy describes a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to nonprogressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorders of cerebral palsy are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cognition, communication, and behaviour, by epilepsy, and by secondary musculoskeletal problems.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma.

Though synthetic pharmaceutical treatment may work for some, others would like to have the legal right to choose how they treat their conditions. Patrick is the perfect example of someone who has been through it all and is now able cope with the assistance of medical marijuana.

Luke is an eighteen-year-old medical marijuana patient in California.
He has been suffering from a rare genetic skin disorder his whole life that causes his skin can to blister and tear with just slight contact. He is required to have hand and throat surgery every few years in order to live more comfortably.
At age sixteen, Luke first tried medical marijuana to help aid his symptoms. These symptoms include pain, night terrors, loss of appetite, insomnia, and isolation. Since then, Luke has seen improvements in all areas.
Because of their higher potency, Luke has found that medical marijuana concentrates help him sleep better. He discovered the G-Pen personal vaporizer for it’s ease of use compared to traditional methods of ingestion.
Luke has now taken his crusade for the legalization of medical marijuana to new heights as he visits with the WeedMaps team to get the message out. Please take a moment and listen to Luke tell you his story of bravery and achievement over all odds. His story will inspire you.

Smolder: Cerebral Palsy and Cannabis
Published on Jun 21, 2013
Smolder was born on 8th March 1940, with cerebral palsy.
“I am now aware that I not only have this handicap I was born with, I’ve also encountered a slightly similar problem in that all my life, people have regarded themselves as being more intelligent than I. My problem then is that their intelligence level apparently dropped when I came into their lives, because they baby talk to me.
I wish to state that someone like myself and anybody who is permanently incapacitated should have the right and the preference to their medicine. By far for myself, cannabis provides me some measure of mental and emotional satisfaction in my life. On the other hand, millions of people smoke more than 100 grams of tobacco a week, just to service an addiction. I only need about 30 grams of good quality cannabis a week. Eventually I realised I had to grow my own. I can’t keep relying on people to give it to me, though the people of Nimbin have been very kind to me.
Today I am very unhappy about these problems; people’s attitudes toward the disabled, and the illegality of cannabis, to the point where I can argue that combined, both of these are bigger trouble than Cerebral Palsy, which was always incidental to me.
I am a 73 year old Cerebral Palsy patient with more knowledge and experience about the problem than those who rule in Parliament. I am very anxious to know when and if I will ever be allowed, to legally grow and use cannabis. Most Cerebral Palsy patients get laid up in bed and eat or smoke themselves to death by the time they are 53. I need to know why I should be a victim, subjected to the criminal justice system, when for the last 25 years I have already suffered quite enough from Government prohibition.
Medical Marijuana & Kids: Chaz Moore
An attack seizes Chaz Moore’s body, stealing much of his breath. Spasms in his throat, lungs and diaphragm cause the 17-year-old to speak in hiccups, one syllable at a time.
Chaz opens a jar labeled MMJ, pulls out some fresh green buds and crumbles the marijuana into a small pipe. He lights up the bowl and inhales as deeply as possible through the spasms, turning to blow smoke out his bedroom window.
A second puff, a deep cough and the attack passes.
Chaz is one of 41 children under 18 in Colorado who have a medical marijuana license, according to the most recent data available from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
And he’s convinced that marijuana is saving his life.
