  1. Alright I have tried the SPIRITUAL side to get word out, now it is MANS way;
    My grandfather was a certified genius with 156 IQ that ran the PANAMA CANAL ZONE for the military until 1958 and can be looked up. (George W. Bland Sr.).
    My IQ was 148 when was 17.
    I wrecked my Harley giving me a 5.5 TBI that THC is restoring.
    I figured if THC is restoring my brain injury the way I say it is and if I am as smart as the IQ test says then I should be able to figure out how GOLD formed to 'prove' healing.
    I DID ! But they CYBER ATTACK ME !
    Government kills, GOD 'heals'.
    FEDERAL AGENT you CYBER ATTACKING me shows you FEAR 'TRUTH'.
    CREATORS 'healing' warrior.
    Because I was not believed I did a SPIRITUAL MEDITATION where I was shown how GOLD formed to show TRUTH.
    Copper melts at 1800F but the 'atoms' must be brought to a boil, that is at 3500F. There can't be any oxygen because will put pressure against atoms blocking escape. Melted BORAX will do this as long covering copper. In 100 hours 100 atoms will escape leaving 79 atoms that is GOLD.

  2. Context makes the poison, as with any drug. Personally, I find cannabis to be quite useful to help me gain an appreciation for things I might normally find stressful. Especially with excercise, learning new ideas or practicing skills, all of which I can find quite tiring and frustrating, cannabis helps me focus on thr task. What's nice about this is that I can still train grit sober, which counteracts a lot of the stressors elsewhere.

    That being said, she is right that cannabis is not always completely benign. Some of the worst anxiety episodes I've had have been while I'm high, and can last for days after I clear up. Still, I am aware of the situations which cue them and have been getting better at avoiding those cues.

    The dependency issue is also quite real, and I have taken fasts from cannabis on a number of occasions to mitigate it, but it still can be very sticky if I'm not careful.

    Still, I think that with the right practices and knowledge, the benefits can easily outweigh the risks for me. I'll be interested to see what else they learn in the future

  3. Re: Dependence and a down regulation of the endocannabinoid system. I use cannabis to regulate my emotions and deal with stress. For 42 years, I didn’t need to do this. When I turned 43, my underlying depression became impossible to manage on my own without meds. SSRI’s didn’t work for me. I didn’t like how numb they made me. Cannabis puts me right back on track though. Could it be that age, stress, or genetics makes some people’s endocanniboid system malfunction? And in this case wouldn’t cannabis be seen as a reasonable solution? Like any other medication? And it’s not synthetic?

  4. These fancy, science pricks take the fun out of everything .
    These are the same people that claim its cool to pump our foods, bodies, waters and air with thousands of man made chemicals and tell us " Eh, its just a little bit of poison, its cool in small amounts" yet anything that grows and can be imbibed is illegal. Why do you think cancer, birth defect rates , autism, and very importantly impotence has sky rocketed since the industrial revolution.

    Its great knowing how these things work, but this lady had an agenda. Some one paid her to prove pot was bad. Follow the money

  5. I am the CREATORS 'healing' warrior;
    FEDERAL agents are 'blocking' me from posting this comment on YouTube;
    Because of how bad I was from my 5.5 brain injury and how fast and well that THC helped my THOUGHT PROCESS work again I will never stop telling.
    STOP IT FELON FEDERAL AGENT ! Routers CenturyLink4347 & CenturyLink2825.
    FEDERAL MURDERER
    I am about HEALING earth and the ADVANCEMENT of HUMANITY.
    I am not about becoming rich !
    I am creating gold to prove that THC restores brain injuries.
    The proceeds I will use to create a self charging generator that will run HYDRO drive with 0 carbon output.
    Then will focus on getting DC electricity from atmosphere !
    ADVANCE HUMANITY
    I came forwards with how GOLD and PLATINUM were created to 'prove' my brain injury is being restored with THC so earth can be restored by growing HEMP.
    How else could a 5.5 TBI patient do this ?
    Growing HEMP will restore the 'soil', will restore the 'atmosphere'.
    Will create BIO-DEGRADABLE plastics.
    This is the only way I can get this message out; HEMP plastics is the future for earth.
    LET IT BE KNOWN;
    I wrecked my Harley not wearing my helmet that stopped my heart 3 times, crushed my chest breaking all my ribs multiple times puncturing both lungs, put me into an 87 day coma waking with a 5.5 brain injury requiring relearning life. Once returning home I tried having my doctor do an MRI of my brain to compare to my wreck. He refused telling me that BIG PHARMA will financially destroy any doctor that proves THC restores brain injuries.
    This upset me so much that I taught myself MOLECULAR SCIENCE and went to the gold shop in KALISPELL MONTANA showing JB how copper transitioned into gold. This got me kicked out and he told 'city council' that I am making FOOLS GOLD from copper pass tests
    Boiling water proves that 'heat' excites MOLECULES allowing ATOMS to escape.
    This is how copper transitions into GOLD and nickel into PLATINUM.
    Earth must be restored by growing HEMP world wide.
    ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
    Copper is 179 atoms and melts at around 1400F to 1800F.. You must bring it to a 'boil' that will be at 3500F but the 'oxygen' atom must never make contact or will explode burning on contact. In 72 to 100 hours, 100 atoms will boil out and melted BORAX will absorb them leaving 79 atoms that is GOLD.

  6. The power of the endocannabinoid system and how it relates to all relevant health systems is amazing. We have to convince medical schools to teach this system to the doctors of the future. It’s the reason why I created a whole education video series around CBD. Just make sure you do your homework and know what to look for in a high quality and safe product. Great talk.

  7. rick simpson oil cures cancer and enhances the endocannabinoid system in EVERY way!!! jesus christ where do Ted get these mis information people from, awful ill-advised woman

  8. Yeah but there's a problem here honey that everyone needs to know and you all need to start getting wiser and do your research. If you were dealing with god-given and made plans that would be one thing but not when you have the government changing the chemicals and putting different cells and dragged through your body that alternates your DNA. And as long as they keep you in a fog in a daze and addicted you'll never question it

  9. I found the first half very informative… then got a bit annoyed around the “potential negative effects” of THC. So instead, they rather make other meds for the EC and fill us with poison from big pharma as an alternative to using the natural plant. NO ONE HAS OVER OD’ED ON WEED, yet you can die from taking too much Tylenol, doesn’t that say enough???

  10. Is she trying to say that it is luck that thc binds to the endocannabinoid receptors?.. I honestly was pretty disappointed with this woman’s presentation. All it is was surface level facts, nothing exploring health benefits nor gave an actual reason for why we have so many cannabinoid receptors.

  11. Um how clever u are to understand what exactly? Science? Lol. Hmm If it bears seeds God declared it good. When it doesn't it isn't. Right? Thimk about it. In this synthetic world is anything good or is it simply the Matrix a computer simluated fake.

  12. She forgot to said that the 9 aminoácid that we don't produce like Omega 3,6 and 9.
    When we eat them they will turn into endocanabinoids.
    And that is an information that could have saved many lives until now and from now on.

  14. I use (ok am addicted to) snuff tobacco (no longer smoke, use cannabis & alcohol) & I think tobacco must have some kind similar cannabinoidic effect, though milder? It's effect flutters between calmness and anxiety, depending like she says on what's going on, i.e. time, situation etc. I think smoking is similar also. Hoping to quit snuff soon so my system will have to become normalised. I expect it will be difficult.

  15. For just over 20 years I had been taking Paxil and Klonopin daily so I could function dealing with C-PTSD for about 3 years I was on Oxycontin for arthritis pain. One of my doctor visits I was asked if I would be willing to give cannabis a try, I did not think it would help all that much I have smoked it many times before. I studied it got my card and now I do not use any prescriptions, just cannabis and it is doing me wonders. Losing the side effects alone from prescriptions was fantastic. With that said I found this talk very interesting but if a person is living in a constant state of fight, fight, or flight (used fight twice on purpose) would THC be the perfect key? Not only did she dismiss CBD she did not mention all the other cannabinoids and terpenes, cannabis is far from being all about THC and CBD but people are stuck there.

  16. And all the Trillions of United States TAX $$$, KNOWING the majority of citizens would have made this miraculous PLANT, was INSTEAD BANNED. Ok, time for tough love fellow citizen. Time to take responsibility for getting dependent on very addictive drugs. WE THE PEOPLE act as if our hands are tied. We have enslaved ourselves friends. Unite, tell DEA, Feds to stop burning acres of this plant, & let's get off Opioids FOREVER. Doing my part already. 1st week on Tommy Chong's NANO CBD, Good Vibes day/Nice Dreams for nighty, night! Let's DO this!! Help Trump DEregulate so we can afford to have our own businesses again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. I feel like the reason weed is so controversial is because THC messes up your brain and has harmful effects, while cbd has amazing effects. I know so many people that smoke high THC weed and their iq dropped noticeably just talking to them over the years.

  18. Hundreds of millions of people have been using cannabis for thousands of years and they still don't know about all the side effects.
    She sounded like someone from the pharmaceutical industry.
    Maybe I'll start to juice raw cannabis. Probably very good for you.

  20. It is very interesting to hear this…, but I live in Europe and here THC is not allowed. So we have very good Quality from CBD and this is so helpful for People, without intoxicant or psychological change…! For me would not possible to become healthy without it! I love it!

  21. I'm impressed by how reluctant are people to accept facts, just because they confront or contradict their personal believes. People would rather select just bits of information and dismiss the truth just because it looks unpleasant or confronts them in a personal level.
