By Carey Wedler, Anti-Media

(ANTIMEDIA) — A twelve-year-old girl with epilepsy is suing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Department of Justice, and the Drug Enforcement Agency to legalize cannabis across the country.

Alexis Bortell developed epilepsy at the age of seven, and FDA-approved medications failed to improve her condition. She suffered from multiple seizures per day, and doctors were considering brain surgery. Continue reading How a 12-Year-Old Girl Could Cause Cannabis to Be Legalized Nationwide

Sister Kate (Weed Nun) on the Divine Feminine and the REAL Holy Trinity

By Amanda Froelich, The Mind Unleashed

Raise your hand if you’ve heard of Sister Kate of the Sisters of the Valley. The bad-ass activist, who was formerly known as Sister Occupy (and still is to some), founded the organization which grows CBD-rich strains of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Located near Merced, California, the 1-acre property exists as an oasis and education center for a handful of women who call themselves nuns but aren’t associated with any religion.

Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with Sister Kate (Christine Meeusen) to pick her brain about the women’s work. As our conversation evolved, she dropped copious amounts of wisdom on the subjects of marijuana, the divine feminine, and how the mainstream media continues to re-hash a lie about cannabis being a “Holy Trinity.” Continue reading Sister Kate (Weed Nun) on the Divine Feminine and the REAL Holy Trinity

State Threatens to Kidnap Little Girl Because Parents Cure Her Seizures with CBD in a LEGAL State

By Justin Gardner, The Free Thought Project, Thanks to Natural Blaze

“I would look outside my window just scared to death I would see a police officer and CPS here to take my kid.”

It’s a nightmare made entirely by the State. A little girl would be snatched away from caring parents for doing nothing more than healing their daughter’s debilitating condition with a plant extract.

‘40-Year-Old’ Vegan Healed Himself of Testicular Cancer, High Blood Pressure with Raw Diet and CBD Oil

By Amanda Froelich, The Mind Unleashed

Testicular cancer may be one of the least-talked about cancers, but it is actually the most common cancer among men. This alone makes it worth conversing about. In the United States, an estimated 161,360 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. While the survival rate is higher than most cancers (the 5-year rate for most men with local or regional cancer of the prostate is 100%; 10-year rate is 98%), there are no guarantees when dealing with the affliction, as the sickness stems from toxicity, acidosis and a backed up lymphatic system. If ignored, the root cause of the disease may manifest into more. Continue reading ‘40-Year-Old’ Vegan Healed Himself of Testicular Cancer, High Blood Pressure with Raw Diet and CBD Oil

NYPD Commissioner Says Most Drug Violence Due to Cannabis, Entirely Missing the Point of Legalization

By Isaac Davis, Waking Times

As cannabis legalization gains ground in the United States and other nations, more evidence emerges to confirm that society can benefit from not outlawing a plant. In legal states, more people are turning to cannabis as natural alternative to dangerous pharmaceutical painkillers, the judicial system is no longer being burdened by frivolous possession cases, SWAT teams are no longer being dispatched to raid potheads, and there is big money to be made in tax revenue. Continue reading NYPD Commissioner Says Most Drug Violence Due to Cannabis, Entirely Missing the Point of Legalization

Illegally Healed: How Cannabis Oil Saved This 11-Year-Old From A Rare Bone Tumor

By Amanda Froelich, The Mind Unleashed

“It was the thought of losing my daughter without turning over every rock imaginable is what led me to cannabis,” says Janie Maedler, a mother, educator and cannabis advocate.

In October of 2013, life forever changed for the Maedler family when 7-year-old Rylie was diagnosed with Aggressive Giant Cell Granuloma — a disfiguring bone tumor that mimics cancer. Not only was the tumor eating away at her facial bone structure, it was causing immense pain and triggering seizures. As a result, doctors were eager to get her into surgery.

Cannabis – The Ultimate in Neuroprotection

By Mary Biles, Wake Up World

Earlier this year we saw the announcement that THCa, another molecule found in the cannabis plant, has neuroprotective effects. Apart from flying in the face of the belief that cannabis damages brain cells, why should we care whether something is neuroprotective or not?

The death of brain cells is a natural part of the ageing process. Cells die off and the body is also capable of making new ones through neurogenesis. But the older we get, the more susceptible we become to ‘inappropriate cell death’ through traumatic injury, environmental toxins, cardiovascular disorders, infectious agents, or genetic diseases. That’s why scientists are researching neuroprotective drugs to limit the damage caused to brain cells after acute events such as strokes, to slow down the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, and to even prevent unnecessary cell death from happening in the first place.

Woman Cured Terminal Brain Tumor With Cannabis Oil After Chemo Failed

By Heather CallaghanNatural Blaze

Scottish woman, Lynn Cameron, was told at age 48 that she had just 6 to 18 months to live. After a seizure landed her in the hospital in 2013, doctors discovered a brain tumor. She had surgery to remove the deadly brain tumor but doctors told her they couldn’t get it all and that she was now in Stage 4, terminal condition. Radiation and chemotherapy did not shrink her tumor so her condition was still labeled incurable.

She began researching alternative therapies and first began an alkalizing diet and removed all processed sugar from her diet. When the radiation and chemo didn’t change the tumor, she decided to really “break the mold.” Continue reading Woman Cured Terminal Brain Tumor With Cannabis Oil After Chemo Failed

First Briton Prescribed Cannabis Now Free of Deadly Epilepsy and Seizures

By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

There are approximately 50 million people around the world who suffer from seizures. One of them was 11-year-old Billy Caldwell of Northern Ireland who was born with a particularly dangerous form of epilepsy. Intractable epilepsy is sometimes called uncontrolled epilepsy and doesn’t respond to typical treatments. Just one year ago, he suffered up to a 100 seizures a day!

His condition was beyond medication or diet changes, and any one of the seizures could have killed him. His 49-year-old mother, Charlotte, had to become his full-time caretaker. She says he has cheated death thousands of times. She called his rapid recovery “incredible.” Continue reading First Briton Prescribed Cannabis Now Free of Deadly Epilepsy and Seizures

Canada Unveils Plan to Open 150 Cannabis Shops and a Legal Mail Order Service

By Vic Bishop, Waking Times

The march towards international legalization of cannabis is taking a great leap forward as Ontario, Canada has announced plans to open 150 government-run pot shops. Additionally, and perhaps of greater interest, is their plan to also begin an online mail-order system, allowing responsible adults to purchase recreational cannabis without the hassle of visiting a retail store.

As the country prepares for legal recreational sales of cannabis to begin next July, the east-central province of Ontario, home to Toronto and Ottawa, is giving control to a subsidiary of The Liquor Control Board of Ontario. Law in Ontario will require those in possession of pot to be at least 19 years of age, one year older than the federal minimum of 18.
