Worth Repeating: Marijuana and the Psychology of Optimal Experience

By Ron Marczyk, R.N.
Health Education Teacher (Retired)

The reductionist, "group think," cold, dogmatic drug warriors of the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the DEA, and the FDA have been digesting their own misinformation for so long they have lost their humanity. 

As counterintuitive as it sounds, the" high" or "feel good" buzz from marijuana is an actual "therapeutic effect" that heals the brain, produces homeostasis and prevents many neurodegenerative conditions.

Brain homeostasis is restored by the direct action of THC/CBD-activating CB1 receptors in the amygdala which regulate our "happiness / emotional salience module." This pathway is dedicated to seeking for "meaningfulness" in our existence.

When people ask why I’m certain the federal laws preventing medical use of cannabis must change, my answer is simple: cancer. Curing it is the holy grail of modern medicine, and cannabinoids hold the most promise.

CBD and THC molecules


Cannabis Science Presents Photographic Evidence Showing Cannabis Shrinking Cancer Tumors

Cannabis Science, Inc. a pioneering U.S. biotech company developing pharmaceutical cannabis (marijuana) products, is pleased to share new photographs from this cancer patient with severe squamous cell carcinoma. These pictures clearly show that this patient, with previously treatment-resistant tumors, continues to make obvious improvement. The tumors appear to be dying and then healing after treatment with cannabis-based extracts.

Cannabis Science has been working closely with this patient who has multiple squamous cell carcinoma tumors on his head. The latest pictures indicate that this patient is making dramatic improvement using cannabis-extract topical therapy under scientific guidance from Cannabis Science.


Proof Marijuana Has Medical Values

Back on episode 2 of Weed Wars there was a story about a father with a young son who is afflicted with severe epilepsy. The child, 5yr old Jayden, was having multiple grand mal seizures each day and the effects of the seizures showed not only on this sweet young boy but on his father also.
For the past 4 years Jayden's dad and doctor's tried every anti-epileptic drug available. However these drugs did not seem to calm Jayden's seizures plus their were side effects. It was clear from watching the program that both Jayden and his father could not continue living like this. He would have up to 10 seizures a day. In video shot of Jayden you could see he was in constant pain and just living a miserable life. Jayden had not had a day without a seizure in over 4 years. The pain Jayden felt physically his father felt emotionally.

CBD: An Overview

"Doctors to Study Effectiveness of CBD

Tod Mikuriya, MD, did not live to see it, but his dream of investigating the medical potential of compounds in the cannabis plant other than THC is now within the grasp of his successors.

The Society of Cannabis Clinicians, the group Mikuriya founded in 1999, has drafted a “Strain Evaluation Survey” to collect data from patients who medicate with cannabis in which cannabidiol (CBD) is predominant.

CBD-rich cannabis will be available at California and Colorado dispensaries by late summer —and soon thereafter, inevitably, in other states where patients can legally use cannabis as medicine.
