  1. CBD works for me. Two blown discs in my spine, Painkillers dont touch it, CBD puts it in a padded box. Try it, give it a week and i bet you wot turn it down again.

  2. The stigma surrounding cannabis has to be broken down. So glad that it’s starting to happen. It is quite possibly the most amazing plant on earth. It’s the reason why I created a whole education video series around CBD. Just make sure you do your homework and know what to look for in a high quality and safe product. Great talk.

  3. I have a strong SPIRITUAL heart but am using mans 'science' to prove me right.
    I am the CREATORS 'healing' warrior.
    I came forwards with how GOLD and PLATINUM were created to 'prove' my brain injury is being restored with THC so earth can be restored by growing HEMP.
    How else could a 5.5 TBI patient do this ?
    ADVANCE HUMANITY
    Growing HEMP will restore the 'soil', will restore the 'atmosphere'.
    Will create BIO-DEGRADABLE plastics.
    RESTORE EARTH
    This is the only way I can get this message out; HEMP plastics is the future for earth.
    LET IT BE KNOWN;
    I wrecked my Harley not wearing my helmet that stopped my heart 3 times, put me into an 87 day coma waking with a 5.5 brain injury requiring relearning life. Once returning home I tried having my doctor do an MRI of my brain to compare to my wreck. He refused telling me that BIG PHARMA will financially destroy any doctor that proves THC restores brain injuries.
    This upset me so much that I taught myself MOLECULAR SCIENCE and went to the gold shop in KALISPELL MONTANA showing JB how copper transitioned into gold. This got me kicked out and he told 'city council' that I am making FOOLS GOLD from copper pass tests
    Boiling water proves that 'heat' excites MOLECULES allowing ATOMS to escape.
    This is how copper transitions into GOLD and nickel into PLATINUM.
    Earth must be restored by growing HEMP world wide.
    ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

  4. Former Wall St isn't the place to look for honest people talking about medical benefits of cannabis. Don't forget, they profited off the opiod epidemic…

  5. "CBD isn't addictive"

    Kinda wish it was so I wouldn't forget to take mine some days. Weed on the other hand. I got really dependent on that. Still smoke weed but CBD really helps me regulate my use.

  6. Growing HEMP will restore the 'soil', will restore the 'atmosphere'.
    Will create BIO-DEGRADABLE plastics.
    RESTORE EARTH

  7. a useful discussion on the need to de-stigmatize the use of cannabis, in particular by educating on its non-psychoactive therapeutic ingredients like cbd, which is a good start, towards broader acceptance, as this man has concluded the talk with, although i must admit im always just a bit skeptical of those who tout cbd alone as therapeutic, sure it has its own potentials, its effective as several studies in-vitro and in-vivo have demonstrated, but it is important to compare effects of it alone vs. whole plant spectrum treatments for the range of diseases illnesses cannabis as a holistic medicine can heal, with all its other cannabinoids and terpenes, pinenes etc. which all contribute more effectively in the entourage effect, as natures designed it to do so-my two cent withregard to the fact that isolating any compound for treatment assumes that scientists know exactly how the particular compound works completely alone, its never the case, its something that big pharma or big marijuana is more likely to promote, because then they can claim patent on unique compositions they have concocted, which could also happen with whole plant strain, but is less likely to be accepted by the masses who have a right to grow any plant they wish but may be duped by governments and their corporate lobbies who find surreptitious ways to make anything big they may profit off of illegal through new controls and laws, everyone should know though that a plant is mother earth's gift to man, that cannot be patented, which is why its been kept illegal for all these years, despite knowing its tremendous therapeutic medicinal potentials because there was no way to regulate a plant other than ban it entirely to make it criminal, thus until compounds began to become isolated only then has the legality begun to truly shift, since now they think they can claim rights based on their research, but westerns medicines approach by targeted pharmaceuticals has proved over the years to have many pitfalls in causing a hosts of unwanted sideeffects because unlike eastern medicine it does not comprehensively address the underlying root cause of a disease by helping to restore the balance of endogenous system of healing through process regulated by mechanisms like our endocannabinoid systems, rather it treats symptoms so doesnt cure, anyways, although i appreciated the talk, i felt a comparison to coffee was a primitive assessment of cannabis with conflict of interest calling it a superfood

  8. CBD is the best remedy for depression, anxiety
    Weed makes you high and lazy but
    Cbd makes you energetic and more productive 100% right

  9. Lucky for you in New Zealand we ve had to use the thc version due to not having total research so in its raw form .with the on going stress with the police man government pharmaceuticals meaning doctors also would lose out on $$$$$$$$ and be at level with the common man arhaaaa media who ever owns this will easily be brought out to save a keep this existing culture of people

  10. so far claiming CBD as non psychoactive is the driving force behind legalizing CBD… CBD however is psychoactive… CBD binds to cb2 receptors therefore is psychoactive
