  1. I am a drug and alcohol counselor working with teens. I've watched this video with them probably over 100 times. The section on noted long term effects is a significant eye opener.

  2. Ah, cannabis! I was prescribed opioids for nerve pain for 9 months and THEN told that doesn't work. My partner took a pic of me during Oxy treatment. When I saw it, I was bent on quitting, so I could try cannabis oil (I had done lots of research, especially coming from Israel). I got off Oxy, started with a low dose of cannabis oil, increased after a month, and after 6 months, didn't have pain, so I stopped. I take oil if I have some stressing appointments with my non WFPB diabetes Dr, otherwise… When you are WFPB, cannabis has wonderful impacts on pain (even neuropathy!). Don't anybody squeese my feet, like the DR did, and I am pain-free. A few spasms, but nothing to be alarmed with. NEVER SMOKE it! Get it from a well-reputed dispensary in oil or cookie form. It works very well. Sayer Ji's website is chockfull of studies (over 500). How many do we need? 🙂

  3. It's sad how research Seems to always be worded in a way that promotes the agenda of those whom fund it…..I think all hard data should be owned by the public which are the true guinea pigs .

  4. Not all cannabis is equal it’s the CBG and CBD that are good against glaucoma and most strains don’t contain much if these cannabinoids at all. Did this reaserch differentiate between the cannabinoid profiles of different strains?

  5. Fake studies only retards smoke cannabis for ‘’health reasons’’. If you are taking cannabis for health reasons you ingest it which last longer while having zero of the negative effects of smoking. On top of that cannabis research is still illegal in most places so if you are getting some sort of permit to do so it’s ‘likely’ by some scumbag in the government trying to downplay any beneficial benefits for his corporate masters.

    With all of that said cannabis is far, real far from a miracle cure as some like to pretend. Last most cannabis sold today is full of pesticides and even herbicides especially the trash sold at medical clubs and recreational dispensaries.(which is a huge fucking problem)

  6. Looks like smoking was the only method of administration in these studies. I decarb my ganja into cannabutter using coconut oil then pour it into bite size candy mould and store in refrig for easy use. I use it for pain management and as a sleep aid. I have found that the higher the turpenes the worse the dry mouth and dry eyes are and those are the side effects I really dislike. But the higher turpenes are what is suppose to deliver the beneficial cannabinoids. IKD I am still learning. Just happy it is legal in my state as I have had to deal with cancer for 8 years without it and now it is available to me.
