Cannabis and CBD provide low toxic protection from seizures

Cannabis and CBD provide low toxic protection from seizures

Does cannabis help patients with seizures?  You bet it does!  And it frequently helps at concentrations that are so low that the cannabis that doesn’t give patients a head high.  Here is a 40-year list of peer reviewed scientific articles from 2013 back to 1973 showing the protective benefits of low toxic cannabis and CBD.

Cannabis is by far the least toxic medicine available and has the best side-effect profile of all medicines that benefit seizures.

How to never get busted…

How to never get busted…

It’s really not legal until we can all grow it for ourselves.  If you’re not from a “licensed” state you have even less protection than we do here in the great state of Washington where unless one has a medical authorization it is still illegal for adults to grow their own.

Barry Cooper is a really cool guy and former narcotics officer who teaches you how not to get busted in this video.  He let’s us in on some of the tricks of the trade officers use to arrest people.  This could mean you, so watch Barry teach his craft, and share with your friends and family.  -Dr. Jake FeliceCannabisMatrix.com

New medical cannabis laws associated with reduced alcohol use and decreased traffic fatalities

New medical cannabis laws associated with reduced alcohol use and decreased traffic fatalities

Why is it that when states adopt medical cannabis laws, alcohol consumption goes down and there are fewer traffic fatalities?  This study from the Journal of Law and Economics examines the relationship between the legalization of medical marijuana and traffic fatalities, which is the leading cause of death for Americans aged 5-34.

Scientists noted that the first full year after coming into effect, legalization of medical cannabis “was associated with an 8–11 percent decrease in traffic fatalities.”

Authors write that “legalization is also associated with sharp decreases in the price of marijuana and alcohol consumption, which suggests that marijuana and alcohol are substitutes.” They conclude “alcohol is the likely mechanism through which the legalization of medical marijuana reduces traffic fatalities.

Imagine that….  -Dr. Jake Felice

How and why cannabis could cure cancer

How and why cannabis could cure cancer


There’s a wealth of laboratory evidence that compounds in cannabis kill cancer cells in a variety of ways.  Even very low concentrations of cannabinoids have anti-cancer effects, and all cannabinoids have extremely low toxicity.  The doctors in this video discuss how it is whole plant cannabis and not pharmaceutical drugs based on the plant’s chemistry that will seize the day and out perform the patented products of pharmaceutical corporations.  Right now, federal laws and regulations prevent the study of cannabis in humans in the United States.  Let’s do what needs to be done and study this plant in humans – the lives of our loved ones are too short to have politics and religion interfering with our god given right to use this plant to help ourselves and those we love.  Here is some information from the National Cancer Institute that you might find interesting on the use of cannabis for helping cancer patients: http://goo.gl/XXsUf

A proper cannabis recommendation requires more than just a few minutes of a doctor’s time, and includes information on cannabinoid content, strain selection, and delivery methods. If you’re not getting this information from your doctor, you’re not getting a real cannabis consultation and are missing information on the full value and healing potential of the plant.
