Re: U.S. Government owns the patent on cannabis cures
Who gives a s$#@, they don't own the cannabis so what's your point.....
 Quoting: Trompem


The "point" is it works, it's cheap, un-invasive, and should be available as a choice to all of us. Chemo kills ALL cells without prejudice. THC "teaches" or "educates" cancer cells to cannibalize themselves without danger to healthy cells.

A very close friend, who is a heavy construction worker, was a college and semi-pro inside linebacker and was strong as a bull chewed tobacco. He was diagnosed with stage FOUR throat cancer and the doctors told him he had THREE MONTHS left to live, "put your affairs in order" and start chemo to se if he could "buy" a little more time.

He went to Canada and received hemp oil treatment. in less than two weeks he was completely clear. That was over three years ago. Now he has a two year old son and is expecting another in a few months.

He showed me videos from a microscope of "H" shaped cancer cells. The one end of the "H" is elongated and wraps itself around healthy cells and consumes them. Then THC was added. Instead of consuming the healthy cells, they started "eating" each other, immediately, until there was just a few left, then just one, then it just died. Disappeared.

So the point is the government put a patent and price tag on my survival, and I don't like it. SO I GIVE A "sS#@", THAT'S WHO. So do my friend and his wife and kids.
 Quoting: Captain Spaulding 34827019


Is hemp oil/THC available in Canada for consumer to purchase? I have a family member that's suffering from liver cancer. I'm trying hard to find hemp oil treatment in the States, but the government did a good job here.

100% legal, they ship to any state, and I think they ship out of country now too. (not 100% sure on that)

On the down side, it's expensive, taken as you are directed it lasts about 2 months and costs $160 for the larger more potent bottle.

Re: U.S. Government owns the patent on cannabis cures
i'm really sorry to say this won't change anything because big pharma doesn't look at a plant as a single living lifeform on the planet.

they see it as something to be exploited, to be dissected and broken into individual elements which can be patented, marketed and sold.

they will gladly sell cannabis derivatives with one hand while arrested cannabis lovers with the other hand.

and best of all they're protecting their profits while they do it.

Just a thought right, if I was to extract oil from cannabis to about 90% purity (mix of THC and CBD) and suspend dissolve it in alcohol to a low dose and somehow put it into capsuels do you think the government would sue me if I was to sell it as a neuro-protectant?

I think the point about them owning the patents is this:

It proves the government has done research which shows cannabis oil extract provides medical benefits. Unfortunately, cannabis is a Schedule 1 drug which means it has a high potential for abuse with no medical benefits.

The point is that the government has shown that it's own scheduling of cannabis is faulty, it should at the very least be moved down to Schedule 2. This would mean that it still has a potential for abuse, but provides significant medical benefits.

Re: U.S. Government owns the patent on cannabis cures
The FDA grows marijuana at the University of Mississippi and supplies it to a small handful of Americans for medicinal purposes:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

In 1978 Robert Randall sued the federal government for arresting him for using cannabis to treat his glaucoma. The judge ruled Randall needed cannabis for medical purposes and required the Food and Drug Administration set up a program to grow cannabis on a farm at the University of Mississippi and to distribute 300 cannabis cigarettes a month to Randall. In 1992 George H. W. Bush discontinued the program after Randall tried to make AIDS patients eligible for the program. Thirteen people were already enrolled and were allowed to continue receiving cannabis cigarettes; today the government still ships cannabis cigarettes to seven people. Irvin Rosenfeld, who became eligible to receive cannabis from the program in 1982 to treat rare bone tumors, urged the George W. Bush administration to reopen the program; however, he was unsuccessful.[69]

---------------

So the federal government declares that marijuana has no accepted medicinal uses (Schedule 1 narcotic) while simultaneously supplying federally grown marijuana to U.S. citzens out of MEDICAL NECESSITY that was granted to them by the federal government.

Re: U.S. Government owns the patent on cannabis cures
For those of you who still have any doubts as to the miraculous healing powers of cannabis and THC Oil or do not believe that there is an ongoing international effort dead set on keeping this free and 100% organic medicine, along with all organic foods, supplements, and natural medicines from a diseased and dying global population... I am about to BLOW YOUR MINDS......

On October 7, 2003 The United States Government as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services was granted a U.S. Patent (#6630507) on any and all uses and applications of: Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants.

[link to patft.uspto.gov]

In other words, THE GOVERNMENT ALREADY OWNS THE ORGANIC THC OIL BY FORCE... and now THEY OWN THE SYNTHETIC THC OIL BY PATENT... along with any and all combinations of the beneficial compounds found in cannabinoids. As you read through this document you will discover beyond any doubt whatsoever that cannabis has a tremendous variety of medicinal values and applications specific and provable enough to be granted a U.S. Patent, yet the Judicial Branch of our government continues to classify cannabis as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

How can they possibly say that cannabis has no medicinal qualities while at the same time they hold a patent that describes in great detail so many of the proven medicinal qualities that actually DO exist in cannabis?

There has been an ongoing effort to eliminate this ridiculous classification by a wide variety of activists and organizations for decades now but to date... the government holds all the cards and rules with a closed mind and an iron fist.

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

The Abstract of the patent reads as follows:

Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism.

[link to encrypted.google.com (secure)]
(The NMDA receptor is one of two kinds of receptors activated by glutimates).

This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of a wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and auto-immune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia.

Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil (mis-spelled in document - should read cannabidiol), are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannbinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (1) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub3, and COCH.sub3. ##STR1##

In other words, it is useful to separate the natural components and use higher concentrations of the beneficial compounds found in cannabis (the R group) to act as antioxidants and neuroprotectants within the human body. Cannabidiol is designed and being engineered to provide all the benefits of organic cannabis without the psychoactive "high" associated with the drug. This will allow them to continue patenting their product while demonizing cannabis in the media and courts and keeping this pure and natural medicine illegal and unavailable.

Be sure to take the time to scroll down and read through this patent and you will discover what a miracle plant cannabis really is. You will be asking yourself... "What can't it do?" as application after application is described in great detail about the medicinal properties and natural treatment potentials of cannabis. Ask yourselves "Why are multinational corporations allowed to continually market dangerous and untested poisons, toxins and industrial waste products described as food additives and incorporate them into our processed food supply while you and I face arrest and incarceration for simply growing and selling organic foods and medicines?"

I have been healing people and their pets for over two years now using organic nutrients combined with THC Oil and the results are miraculous. Screw the FDA... CANNABIS CURES CANCER!

The first solid evidence of the Hebrew use of cannabis was established in 1936 by Sula Benet, a little known Polish etymologist from the Institute of Anthropological Sciences in Warsaw

The word cannabis was generally thought to be of Scythian origin, but Benet showed that it has a much earlier origin in Semitic languages like Hebrew, and that it appears several times throughout the Old Testament. Benet explained that "in the original Hebrew text of the Old Testament there are references to hemp, both as incense, which was an integral part of religious celebration, and as an intoxicant
