The health benefits of cannabis and its ability to cure debilitating diseases are being verified all the time.
Cannabis has been known to cure and reverse the symptoms of chronic illnesses and now it is being used to treat cancer.
The active ingredient in cannabis, cannabinoids are prohibited for use under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, but more research is being carried out medically into the health benefits of using marijuana as a healing drug.
With the legislation of cannabis in 20 states, people are coming round to the idea that it is not the life-ruining drug some authorities would have you believe.
Joycelyn Elders, MD, former US Surgeon General wrote in the 2004 journal “Myths About Medical Marijuana,” the following – “The evidence is overwhelming that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as multiple sclerosis, cancer and AIDS — or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to treat them. And it can do so with remarkable safety. Indeed, marijuana is less toxic than many of the drugs that physicians prescribe every day.”
Recent studies have shown that marijuana is more powerful at treating painful chronic illnesses like cancer, MS, HIV/AIDS and diabetes than most of the other medications available.
Doctors still face a problem in administering cannabis, as the main recreational way of ingesting it is to smoke it, but doctors are unable to encourage this way due to the negative health impacts that come from smoke damage to lungs. This is where the coconut oil comes in.
For the cannabanoid oil to be successfully ingested in the body, coconut oil is the perfect carrier oil to blend it with. The high amount of fatty acids in coconut oil make it the perfect companion to bind the cannabis oil for maximum effect.
Lauric acid, found in coconut oil has been called a ‘miracle’ ingredient on its own. When inside the body it is transformed into monolaurin, which is a very effective anti-viral agent, fighting illnesses such as HIV, herpes and influenza.
