Dr.Christina Sanchez explains how cannabis kills cancer cells

Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain explains how THC kills cancer cells.

Cristina Sánchez (Madrid, Spain, 1971) graduated in Biology at Madrid Complutense University in 1994. Once graduated, she joined Dr. Manuel Guzmán’’s laboratory, where she studied the effect of cannabinoids on lipid and carbohydrate intermediate metabolism first and on cancer cell proliferation later. She obtained her PhD with Honors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in 2000.

During her postdoc at Dr. Piomelli’’s laboratory (University of California Irvine, 2000-2003) she studied the involvement of another group of bioactive lipids (lysophosphatidic acid and related compounds) on pain initiation. In 2004, Cristina returned to Spain and she started coordinating a new line of research within Dr. Guzmán’’s laboratory. The goal of her research is to understand and exploit cannabinoids as potential antitumoral agents in breast cancer. More recently, she has also focused her attention on new cannabinoid receptors and their possible involvement in cannabinoid antitumoral action in breast cancer and other type of tumors. http://www.bbm1.ucm.es/cannabis/cristinasanchezinvestigacion_en.htm

 

The Genius Of Juicing Raw Cannabis

juicing-raw-cannabis | Medical Marijuana dispensary in San Diego

You can smoke it. You can bake it. You can even wear it. Juicing, however, seems to be the latest rage, and regardless of constant scrutiny, it looks like cannabis may have turned a new leaf.

These juicy green cannabis fan leaves are bursting with essential amino acids, omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids, and medicinally-rich cannabinoids. The two most important cannabinoids are cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa). When cannabis is heated or burned, dormant THCa becomes psychoactive (THC), promoting the state of feeling “high.” These methods increase the potency of the marijuana, but the cannabinoids ingested peak at a mere 10mg. Medicinally, one would have to consume more than 500 mg to receive the full benefits of this miraculous plant.

This is where juicing comes in.

Juicing is a wonderful alternative for those who want to go about their day without moving into a psychoactive state. Once you’ve identified a reliable source of fan leaves (both male and female leaves can be used), all you need is a wheatgrass juicer. A hand crank juicer can be found on Amazon for about $40. The Angel Juicer is one of the top electric juicers on the market, and starts at $1200. We recommend squeezing in some lemon, too!

When it comes to cannabis juice, the fresher the better! Fan leaves should be used within 3 days of harvesting and can be stored in the refrigerator prior to use.

Regular cannabis juicing is part of a clean, healthy lifestyle. Plus you get all the medical benefit of CBDs. From anti-inflammatory properties to cancer prevention and healing for a host of chronic illnesses, CBD has a bright future and the chance to change the way the world views cannabis. Though more clinical tests need to be performed to fully grasp CBDs capabilities, political handcuffs have left those who want to better the world in a bubble of frustration. For now, all we can do is sit and wait in hopes that the blindfold will be removed so that the answers that were always there can be seen. And since we have some time to spare, might as well get out the juicer! Cheers!

BEYOND BROWNIES: COOKING WITH CANNABIS


Cannabis can be used in many forms. Smoking being the most common, but eating cannabis is a great way to experience all of the wonderful effects of cannabinoids and get all of it’s many healing properties without having to smoke anything at all. When consumed properly, medical marijuana provides long-lasting, gentle relief. A caring dispensary such as CCW can help ensure you get the same strength and quality every time.
Eating cannabis has been linked to early ceremonial practices occurring around the 5th/2nd century BCE.

Eating cannabis is not just limited to “getting high” either. There are many ways to use cannabis and hemp as nutritional beneficial supplements to a regular well balanced diet.  (camera will be fading in and out images of all of this as the voice over is read) Examples are juicing the leaves like wheatgrass, tinctures of various types, RSO oils, hemp mash as fiber, and many many more healthy ways to utilize marijuana.

Hemp seeds won’t get you high either. Rather, as one of the richest, most balanced sources of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, they are known to reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, eczema and psoriasis, attention deficit disorder and depression.

They also contain protein, vitamins B and E, and critical minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Seeds can be tossed into smoothies and salads, or ground into flour for baking. Some people like the nutty flavor of hemp seeds so much, they munch them by the handful!

Can Water Cure Cancer? The Benefits of Alkaline Water

can-water-cure-cancer-the-benefits-of-alkaline-water

At some point along the way, you may have learned that you are 70% water. You may also have learned about the dangers of dehydration, and the tremendous benefit of drinking more water than anything else.

Go ahead and ask yourself if you’ve had enough water to drink today. If the answer is no, stop reading, get up, and go get some. If the answer is yes, keep reading.

Beyond considerations of water quantity, we must consider water quality. Here in San Diego, the stuff that comes out of the sink is awful. But some of the bottled water alternatives are just as bad. If you really want to drink well, obtain a steady flow of alkaline water. “Alkaline” water has a pH of 7.1 or higher.

Sugar, caffeine, red meat, alcohol, and stress are primary health offenders—all of which promote acidity in the body. By drinking antioxidant-rich alkaline water, you support the body’s innate (and amazing) talent for healing and repair. Remove toxins, reduce signs of aging, and super-charge your immune system! A thriving, healthy body exists in an alkaline state. Cancer doesn’t grow in alkaline environments.

  • DETOXIFICATION: From prescription drugs and processed food to normal cellular processes and muscle activity, acidic waste builds up in your body on a daily basis. Drinking alkaline water helps to flush it out.
  • HYDRATION: Alkaline water “clusters” are more easily absorbed into the cells.
  • OXYGENATION: As an antioxidant, alkaline water collects and neutralizes free radicals; converting them to oxygen and energizing the body.

At CCW, we are dedicated to your whole well-being. Take hydration to new heights! You can purchase an alkaline water filter for your home, or buy it in bulk from local water suppliers.

Going Green From the Inside Out? WHAT TO EAT.

what-to-eat

You are what you eat. Therefore, it stands to reason that if you want to keep it real, you eat real food.

Real food knows where it came from. It has a direct connection to its source. For example, a cow grazing lazily in the field, or a green bean happily climbing a pole, or an apple dangling from a branch, or a nut snugly nestled in its shell, or a nice, fresh egg. All of these would qualify as real food if you were to prepare them for your mouth. All of these would be able to identify themselves as a product of nature.

Fake food sits on a grocery store shelf, blinking in the fluorescent glare, trying desperately to seduce you with shiny packaging and flashy fonts. It’s full of artificial flavor and color and preservatives and sodium. When you put it in your mouth, your mind squeals and your body groans. This is why many of us are suffering with dis-ease, dependent on drugs. We no longer identify ourselves as products of nature.

Eating real food is a great way to recover your natural state. (For those who may have forgotten, your natural state is one of vibrant health and wellness.)
