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

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.

How Monsanto & Bayer Are Trying To Take Over The Cannabis Industry

By Alanna Ketler, Collective Evolution

Responsible for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the pesticides that are sprayed on them, Monsanto is on the tips of everyone’s tongues lately. Health conscious individuals are doing everything they can to boycott this company and support others instead, even if that means opting for much pricier organic produce.

There are a number of reasons for their concern, including the fact that no long-term studies have been done to show the potential health effects of consuming genetically modified foods or the high levels of pesticides that came with them. The mere fact that this company is responsible for some of the worst chemicals ever created, including Agent Orange, DDT, asbestos, and aspartame, also contributes to this widespread mistrust.

I’m no doctor, but I thought I was familiar with the key biological systems in the body. Turns out though, I was wrong. That’s because unless you’re a research scientist or work in the field of medical cannabis, it’s unlikely you’ll ever have been told about the endocannabinoid system. And yet, it has been hailed as “the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.” Continue reading 8 Amazing Facts About the Endocannabinoid System – and Why We Should Tell the World About It

Damian Marley Transforms Abandoned California Prison Into A Pot Farm

By Amanda Froelich, Truth Theory

Did you hear? Back in 2016, Damien Marley — Bob Marley’s youngest son — partnered with Ocean Grown Extracts to convert a former 77,000 square foot prison in California into a cannabis grow space. The multi-million dollar facility is now producing quality herb which is being sold to medical marijuana dispensaries.

As one might expect, the irony of the entire ordeal hasn’t been lost on Marley. Said the 38-year-old entrepreneur: “Many people sacrificed so much for the herb over the years who got locked up.

Hempcrete Could Change The Way We Build Everything

By Joe Martino, Collective Evolution

First off, what is Hempcrete? As the name suggests, hempcrete is a building material that incorporates hemp into its mixture. Versatile and hardy, it can be used for wall insulation, flooring, walls, roofing, and more, and is fireproof, waterproof, and rot-proof, provided it’s used aboveground.

Derived from the shiv or inside stem of the hemp plant, it’s then mixed with a lime base binder to create the final, negative carbon footprint product. Hempcrete is much more versatile and pliable than concrete, making it an easier material to work with. In fact, earthquakes cannot crack these structures, as they are three times more resistant to damage than regular concrete. Continue reading Hempcrete Could Change The Way We Build Everything
