Let’s begin with Run from the Cure. This guy is talking about hemp oil as a cure for cancer. I have doubts about this, but the film offers testimony – of course they are crackpots??? How many crackpots does it take for the observations to become science? My problem with it is not the usual problem. I perceive cancer primarily as a degenerative disease based on lifestyle, so when I hear testimony based on macrobiotic lifestyle (as compared to the hell Farrah Fawcett went through) I tend to go for it – healthy eating has certainly helped me. Maybe there are quick cures but …. Listen to these people, and then start to ask why haven’t the cancer societies sponsored research into hemp?

Partly that was answered in the clip. Legally the moviemaker was prohibited from distributing his “hemp oil” as it contained THC, and THC is apparently the psycho-active substance that people smoke marijuana for. The “hemp oil” was made from marijuana so the clip-maker had his plants taken by the police, but the “hemp oil” was in a syringe and often enough rubbed on the “disease” so no psycho-activity could take place – it seems to me. Morphine is used as a controlled substance, why couldn’t this “hemp oil” be used similarly?

So that is a taster on the issue. In this very short clip there is just science. Basically cannabinoids are supposed to destroy cancer cells. Simple as that. They are supposed to destroy cancer cells. Watch the clip (from Forbidden Knowledge TV):-

Is this science or pseudo-science? I can’t answer that, I don’t trust science anyway – they are in the pay of the 1%. But when you add to it the info given by Rick Simpson in “Run fron the Cure“, there is a lot to be answered.

Here is more info from the documentary “What if cannabis cured cancer?”:-

And here is the documentary:-

Myles, thanks a lot. I still don’t think Thrive Exposed was that sound analytically but what you are talking about is sound. “A small group control the world because the most superior resource on earth (Hemp) is illegal.” I am certain the 1% are blocking use of hemp, blocking the use of cannabis as a possible cure for cancer, but it does surprise me that hemp is grown in the UK as the 1% have the UK under wraps.

Hemp – not cannabis

Posted: 08/04/2012 by zandtao in Big Food, Big Pharma, ONE planet

Hemp is not cannabis, I never knew that. Because they are not the same the reason for making the growing of hemp cannot be its use as a recreational drug. Here are hemp facts from Green Living

“The word ‘hemp’ for many people still conjures up images primarily related to the mood altering drug, Marijuana.

While Cannabis Sativa is certainly used extensively for medicinal, illicit and ‘recreational’ purposes as marijuana, industrial hemp is a different strain containing very little of the psychoactive substance found in marijuana. You simply cannot get high on industrial hemp.

Industrial hemp is an extraordinarily useful plant that can provide more environmentally friendly food, fiber, fuel, medicinal and building products.

Hemp is incredibly robust to the point in some places it is invasive and is considered a noxious weed. Some varieties are very hardy and able to thrive in saline and heavily degraded soils. It’s these characteristics that make it a great candidate to replace pesticide and herbicide dependent crops such as cotton. Hemp is also a water miser and can be processed into useful products with little energy and without requiring toxic chemicals.

Here’s some other fast facts about hemp

Hempseed has high levels of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, essential fatty acids and trace elements.

Hempseed oil comprises nearly a third of the seeds’ weight; making it a viable source for cooking oil, lighting and bio-fuel.

Hempseed oil is also beneficial as a body care product and can be made into soaps, conditioners and lotions.

The stalk provides an incredibly strong, durable and rot resistant fiber that’s been used in the shipping industry for centuries. As hemp can grow over ten feet tall, the long fibers are perfect for rope.

The short fibers of the stalk can be used in textiles as a replacement or blender fiber for cotton.

The core of the stalk can be used to make paper and organic plastics.

The woody core, known as hurds, can be mixed with lime, sand, plaster and cement to create a very strong concrete or building bricks.

The core fiber can also be utilized in producing a fiberboard that is twice as strong as wood-based fiberboard.

The stalk can also be used to make methanol and ethanol

Hemp can be planted as a crop for restoring the fertility of fields in the process of stock rotation.

Given its fast growth, hemp may also be useful in carbon sequestration – taking carbon out of the air and putting it back into the earth.

Hemp is a great insulation material that can be applied in the wall cavaties and roof spaces of houses as a replacement for fiberglass batts.

The flowers and leaves are used to make medicines for treating many ailments such as glaucoma and cancer sufferers can be prescribed it to ease pain.” I couldn’t find the book referred to in the rest of the article.

Hemp and cannabis are different and hemp is very useful. So when the Thrive Exposed guy, Myles, says:-

“A small group control the world because the most superior resource on earth (Hemp) is illegal.”

My blog response was “I love a good conspiracy but isn’t this a bit much?” Look at the above, look what can be done with hemp – that cannot be patented, and look at how many products hemp would compete with Proctor and Gamble. I can see Myles’ frustration, still not sure about his Thrive crit.

So I investigated hemp illegality. Now Thailand is famous for its drug laws so it is not a good measure on drug issues – I believe people can get what they want but sentences are severe. But what about hemp? It is illegal, although there are legal outlets.

From a business site:-

Due to the legal and regulatory environment in Thailand at this time, Industrial Hemp is allowed to be grown by Hill Tribes only. In most cases Hill Tribe villages have small plots (1-2Ha) of total land for cultivation of hemp resulting in low volume and high costs. Be prepared to pay more for Hemp raw materials in Thailand because of the logistics involved.

Thai Hemp Industries (THI) concentrates effort on Kenaf (Deccan Hemp, Hibiscus Cannbinus L.) which offers a suitable alternative to Industrial Hemp raw materials and legal for all farmers in Thailand to cultivate and benefit from.

Now the King has sanctioned a project involving hemp, this project is called “The Mon Ngo Royal Project Development Center” from this page. Thai people love their king, and to get royal seal of approval is very important here – and hemp has it even though in general it is illegal to grow it. Here is a group of Thai women who make hemp products.

Hemp is apparently part of the Hmong tradition so they are allowed to grow it and it has a tourist outlet. Here is a clip of what the Hmong people do.

And here is where hemp is allowed to be grown throughout the world..

And the law represents the 1% first, so far Myles you’re on the button.

Here is a 5 minute-clip I got from Forbidden Knowledge TV, showing the different uses of hemp. Growing hemp has been legalised in the UK, and you can see the benefits:-

Hemp in the car is useful as fibre-glass is being questioned. And here is some more info on hemp as fuel.

Myles, it is quite clear to me that your claim for the hemp plant is valid. It has many uses and could definitely benefit people if the law allowed its growth – as in the UK.

Hemp, Cannabis – Starting Point

I have a lot of learning to do and a lot of unlearning. As there is unlearning it is useful to describe starting points (this blog contains no facts or understanding about hemp and cannabis):-

1) Hemp

Hemp, cannabis, potato – potahto, pot, ganja, marijuana, weed blow etc. It’s all the same. But I have heard of clothes made from hemp.

2) Medical Marijuana

If it works use it, the question is the evidence. And sadly that evidence is skewed when it comes to the cancer industry – see Healing Cancer from the Inside Out, Health Page, Gerson and Burzynski. Because of the 1% control of science, the fact that medical marijuana is not allowed to me does not mean it is not effective. But as cannabis is banned should they be argueing for its use? Isn’t morphine an opiate? Morphine is legal, opium isn’t. When I was a teenager there was talk of cannabis, but people were sniffing glue. Now teenagers take all kinds of prescription drugs recreationally, there is not a clear line. When such a line is not clear I begin to consider the motivations of the 1%.

3) Marijuana recreationally

Having been an alcoholic I am biassed when it comes to this. Alcoholicism is seriously debilitating, and because it is socially acceptable even more so. I am now clean so I don’t believe in any form of recreational drugs. I had limited experience of cannabis when younger, I never smoked so couldn’t inhale it properly. Most of the time I took it I had been drinking and the two don’t mix. The next day I was wasted but not hung over – I could work much better the day after cannabis. I believe it is legal to buy cannabis in Amsterdam, and that there are limited problems. I believe that cannabis is a starter for hard drugs such as cocaine, heroine, or whatever they are taking now.

Those are my starting points, it is time I did some learning.

Hemp – Thrive Exposed

I am pleased I watched this movie. It showed me that there is a serious issue that needs questioning – the use of hemp. I don’t think the movie exposes Thrive. I have not seen Thay touting hemp, more in line mb does not tout hemp. All the different medical movies I have put up don’t tout hemp, so why should Thrive? But importantly why isn’t hemp being investigated for its curative properties?

Maybe you would like to argue that our system would not make illegal something that is beneficial. That doesn’t wash with me, after all Gerson and Burzynski have suffered from the cancer industry. It is clear from Thrive Exposed (links below) and Run from the Cure that historically hemp has been curative, and it is equally clear that the 1% would not want hemp if it was effective – because they cannot patent it and make a profit. Hemp is a plant, it grows, it cannot be owned by the 1% so it is made illegal.

The movie makes the legitimate point that hemp products would compete with P&G ie take their profits. When I further examine these two blogs mentioned in the movie (Myles O’Howe and Thrive Debunked), I can see that the potential for hemp is great, and the fact that medicinal use of hemp and cannabis has been suppressed is important. There appear to be further uses of hemp that could benefit mankind. I have been remiss with this as I have associated the promotion of hemp and cannabis for medical and other purposes as a subterfuge for legalising drug usage. This encouraged remiss is meant to happen, of course.

Then they attacked Proctor & Gamble for animal testing, so they are attacking Foster Gamble for not attacking P&G. To me it is good that a member of the 1% is blowing the whistle, does he have to attack his own family – even though they merit an attack? The movie did say stop using P&G products to stop animal testing, but they could also have said “Stop using P&G products as they damage your health”. Here is the movie’s boycott link

Next Thrive Exposed returned to its attack on hemp repression. Hemp was used to make the first diesel in the diesel engine, and has been attacked by the petroleum industry. “A small group control the world because the most superior resource on earth (Hemp) is illegal.” I love a good conspiracy but isn’t this a bit much? To be honest I don’t know, and I am never likely to. the movie continued in this vein.

Apparently Thrive’s company got Thrive Exposed blocked from You-Tube, so maybe there is something to what this guy is saying. Summarising this guy’s message as “Thrive should promote hemp, hemp would undermine the 1%, and hemp would reduce P&G profits”, surely this is not enough to affect a big budget approach such as Thrive.

In my earlier blog on Thrive I liked the message, but felt there was a commercialism – not a free distribution. Then there was a “pay-to-learn” about Thrive and I went against it. Thrive Exposed does not alter any of that, all it does is make me want to look into hemp.

Here are Thrive Exposed links:-

I downloaded the links and joined it as one movie to watch it – worthwhile.

I am going to look for some authority on hemp – Health Ranger?
