Realm of Caring, the group who gave us the medicinal Hemp strain named "Charlotte's Web" have shared a video on their page created by Barry Pogson. With help from Nichole Montanez, a visual journalist with the Gazette in Colorado Springs, and photos from her "Face of Cannabis" project, they are showing just how many faces there are.
Grab a tissue and watch this video which gives voice to the parents of the children saved by the flowers of this plant.
This shot is profound. Charlotte looks at the plants that will someday be made into the oil that is saving her life.
Many of us have heard, read, or seen a segment in media about that kid who's parents gave her Marijuana Oil. But there are so many more than one kid ~ not that one kid isn't enough to change the world for!
Let's talk about that oil. I love it, though I've never made it or used it. But I like to talk about it. The first time I was published was talking about that oil and what it can do. Marco Renda, of the Treating Yourself Magazine was kind enough to publish my article in issue #42. He expertly titled it "Gifts From Mother Nature". At the time of this blog, the link for the original article on the TY website is down, but my article was very kindly shared by my friend Lincoln Horsley who runs the "Cure Your Own Cancer" website. Read how and why he raves about this plant along side me and so many others.
Imagine that there was this plant that really helped humans with disease and illness. But the leaders of your world, want you to use this other medicine that they say is safer. Oh ... and somebody also makes a lotta money off of that other stuff. But you're not supposed to concern yourself with that.
Imagine someone made oil out of that plant's flowers. Imagine they made it in the SAME WAY that many other common cooking oils are made. Imagine it saved your life or the life of someone you love.
But they insist it's not safe, so you can't use it. No no no ... you should use this stuff over here. Look at how super-sterilized it is and so perfectly packaged too.
Are we free?
Do we really have free choice?
I'm cool with anyone who wants to choose man-made medicines, and I'm not ignorant to the fact that Western Medicine has made some majorly life-saving breakthroughs. It deserves respect, this is true.
Personally though, I prefer to use naturally derived medicines. Y'know ... the ones that were undoubtedly the instigation for many of those man-made meds? And others do too. We deserve the respect to choose what we use.
Why must every blog post have this angle? Because in MOST areas of this world, a parent would lose their child if they gave him or her this oil. In my city, no one is using it though the interest is everywhere. And in my country ... my awesome country of Canada ... my Parliamentary Health Minister Rona Ambrose sits back and states that there is no evidence to support this oil.
I'd say the reduction of seizures from hundreds per day to none per day is evidence.
What would YOU do for someone that you love?
If you could save his or her life, but you had to break a stupid and asinine law, would you break it?
**See Mandy McKnight here ... she's been facing that very scenario along with hundreds of others for a while now. Her son's seizures reduced IMMEDIATELY upon ingesting the oil.
