There is something you should know about epilepsy and cannabis | Jokubas Ziburkus | TEDxVilnius

Our brains are comprised of at least 150 different subtypes of neurons. Each one of these neurons produces a ‘Pak!’. This represents a very fast change in electrical potential of the cell and it is called an action potential. A single neuron is like a pale blue dot in a very complex system of billions of neurons and trillions of connections between these neurons.
Being a musician himself, Jokubas is interested in looking at neurons from a different perspective: if we were to perceive neural activity as sound, it would probably sound like screaming. What does screaming do to your voice and vocal cords – it causes loss of voice and can even permanently damage the vocal cords. The same happens to neurons that are ridden by seizure activity – excessive electrical activity and excitation can eventually destroy neurons, causing serious damage to your brain.

Jokubas Ziburkus is a Lithuanian-American Neuroscientist. He graduated with Ph.D. in 2001 from Louisiana State University in New Orleans, where according to him he ‘also graduated from the best school of music’. During his first postdoctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins University’s Mind/ Brain Institute, he performed a series of important experiments that led to significant insights on neuromodulation of synaptic plasticity in the visual system.

EPA Approves Pesticides for Hemp Production

The dreaded russet mite that makes growers lose sleep at night.

In a major step toward making the newly legal crop a national commodity, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Thursday approved the use of 10 products to control insect pests and diseases – nine biopesticides and one conventional pesticide.

Biopesticides are derived from biological ingredients, while conventional products are typically derived from chemical substances.

The Entourage Effect and Terpenes

Terpenes, flavonoids, and other compounds found in cannabis work synergistically to produce wide variations in benefits commonly known as the entourage effect, side effects, and strain characteristics. Knowledge of the individual medicinal properties of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids is necessary to cross-breed strains to obtain optimal standardized synergistic compositions. This will enable targeting individual symptoms and/or diseases, including migraine, headache, and pain.

There is accumulating evidence for various therapeutic benefits of cannabis/cannabinoids, especially in the treatment of pain, which may also apply to the treatment of migraine and headache. There is also supporting evidence that cannabis may assist in opioid detoxification and weaning, thus making it a potential weapon in battling the opioid epidemic.

When you choose you CBG and CBD products you should ensure that the product is a whole flower extract and not an isolate so that you will be receiving the full benefits hemp extracts.

Hemp for Victory! – 1942 US Government Film

Did you know the U.S. Army and the Dept of Agriculture jointly produced a 1942 film, “Hemp for Victory,” encouraging farmers to grow hemp for the country’s effort in World War II — particularly for textiles and rope, imports of which had been cut off by war. Over 100,000 acres of hemp were growing in the U.S. at the time, but all related permits were canceled when WW II ended. Check out the entire film in full to learn more about this fascinating part of hemp’s history within the United States.

How do we campaign against prohibition of Cannabis and Hemp? Learnings from His Father’s Legacy

Talking with “The Emperor of Hemp’s” son Dan Herer is fascinating and worrying as we recount the steps over the last 40 years and the challenges (man-made problems repeating themselves!) that we as #humanity face in our lifetime. You may remember Forbes covering Dan’s story in 2008 and now we see whether the #hemp and #cannabis industries and public perceptions have indeed step changed or are we still limited to just scratching the surface?

The endocannabinoid system and the revolution of one | Rachel Knox | TEDxPortland

The endocannabinoid system and the revolution of one | Rachel Knox | TEDxPortland

In this riveting talk, Rachel Knox, MD / MBA, explores the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and the revolution of one. How we can take control to harness the power found in our own bodies. We will not stop until this universal knowledge is in the medical textbooks / curriculum for all to learn and understand. A profound idea worth spreading…

Rachel is the co-founder of American Cannabinoid Clinics and Chair of the Oregon Cannabis Commission. She received her medical and business degrees from Tufts University and then pursued additional study of the most important physiologic system in the human body — the endocannabinoid system. She is passionate about educating her professional peers and broader public about the safety and effectiveness of Cannabinoid Medicine. Her work is groundbreaking at a transformative time in our society.
