Getting neuroplastic

Chronic inflammation and stress affect most Americans.

Inflammation is the body’s response to stress of various forms: from our environment, our diets or even excessively loud noises, like living in a big city with constant traffic and horns going off at all times of the day and night. Continue reading

CBD: Free for You and Me

I’m thrilled to announce that the 2018 Farm Bill (which legalizes hemp federally) has just been signed into law today! And, with that, I’m making a new commitment to my community.

Opening our Minds: CBD and the Brain

We’ve often thought that traumatic and disease-related brain injuries were virtual, if not actual, death sentences. But cannabidiol (CBD) is being used to change the trajectory of the lives of people who are affected by these injuries, preventing perhaps the worst of all health issues.

Here’s why.

Opioids: Our Pain, Our Children and New Roads Forward

I grew up pretty poor in Los Angeles County. Even though I lived near rich families and nice suburban neighborhoods, I couldn’t identify with their way of life. From the outside in it looked like those families had it all, so they should be quite happy. But once you take a closer look, suburban areas are not always as perfect as they seem — especially when it comes to the lives of youth. Continue reading

Nutrition and Preventative Care: What We Need Now

Here’s a couple of staggering facts. The United States spends only $1.5 billion on nutrition research every year compared to around $60 billion on drug research.[1] And just 4% of U.S. agricultural subsidies go to the production of fruits and vegetables, with the rest going towards meat and grains. Continue reading

Let’s Get to Work: The Farm Bill and CBD

I heard some great news today. Senator Mitch McConnell’s Hemp Farming Act is now one, big step closer to becoming law!

The Senate and House Agriculture Committees have struck a deal in principle on the legislation.

The Cost of Poor Health Care: CBD and the American Health Care System

Alternative Medicine Logo article originally posted on Alternative Medicine

I have two missions in life. The first is to discover the geometric first-principles unification of space, time, matter, energy and consciousness. My postings lately have not been about that since I’ve been equally consumed with my second mission, which is to heal the world through plant medicine. Unfortunately, we’re sick, stressed and all f*ucked up.

CBD and the Gut: A Cure for Crohn’s?

A fellow scientist and friend of mine suffers from Crohn’s disease, which is a lifelong inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that can cause severe belly pain and chronic diarrhea. In the last few years I’ve gotten acquainted with how this condition can affect one’s life. Not only did he have life threatening incidents due to this condition, he continually suffered from a variety of side effects from the pharmaceuticals that were supposed to help. When he learned I was researching and writing a book about how CBD helps various conditions, including Crohn’s, he decided to research and try dosing CBD for himself. I’m happy to report that he is almost completely off his pharmaceutical drugs and almost completely relieved of his symptoms by simply using this plant medicine.

There are Molecules, and Then There are Molecules

There are, arguably, five ingestible plant molecules that have changed the course of how we eat and live, and which have had a massive impact on human history. Here’s why I predict cannabidiol (CBD) is the sixth.

What we essentially know about wellness is this: the treatment of the whole person includes emotional, mental, spiritual, physical and environmental factors, and it aims to promote well being through the whole person rather than just the symptomatic relief of a disease.

The Universe and the Human Body: Ideal States and CBD

After researching and benefiting from cannabidiol (CBD) as a treatment for my own chronic pain and tendency toward attention deficit disorder, I knew that more people need to be educated on how this can help with their pain, stress, and suffering. So it’s become a part of my personal mission to make that happen in a big way.

The universe of the human body is not that different from that of space: it experiences homeostasis, dramatic and sudden changes, and, eventually, entropy.

Blasting onto newsfeeds in the past 48 hours was an announcement that few expected: Coca-Cola was eyeing the option to develop beverages infused with cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis.

By this morning, however, Aurora Cannabis Inc., the Canadian cultivator reported to be in on this product development, said that it has not signed a deal with respect to a partnership with the drink company.

Does this mean that the partnership is fake news? Absolutely not.

We’re in a new world where CBD is going to become the biggest, hottest ingredient in everything you eat and drink, and Coca-Cola knows that. Continue reading
