The Blunt Facts on Marijuana

Marijuana is a common name of the plant called cannabis. Cannabis sativa is the botanical name for marijuana.

The medicinal part of cannabis is the flowering tops. Cannabis is an herbaceous annual plant found growing wild and also cultivated in warm climates. It can be found most everywhere in the U.S.

The rough, angular, branched stems reach a height of 3-10 feet and bear opposite (or alternate near the top), palmate leaves with 5 to 7 narrow, lanceolate, coarsely serrate, pointed leaflets. The flowers are small and green, the male growing on one plant in axillary panicles, the female on another on spike-like clusters from August to October. The fruit is a small, ash-colored achene. (SOURCE: John Lust, The Herb Book, pg. 145-46.)

How it Works

The chemical agent that gives marijuana its chief property is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Marijuana is primarily known for its euphorigenic and opiating properties. It is said to lift the spirits. It also is a muscle relaxant and an anesthetic (numbing pain). In addition to the properties supra, marijuana is also listed as an antiepilectic (combats epilepsy), antitussive (prevents coughing), antibiotic, antiasthmatic, antispasmodic, analgesic, hypnotic, oxytocic, antidepressant, anodyne (prevents pain), neuralgia (prevents migraine headaches), appetite stimulant, tranquilizer, nervine, and topical anesthetic.

The plant primarily was grown and used for industrial purposes. It is reported that there are over 300 industrial uses for cannabis or hemp. Ship’s charts, maps, logs, and Bibles were made from cannabis or hemp. Clothes, uniforms, textiles and fabrics, ropes, sails, pennants and ensigns were also made from hemp.

Healing Options

The U.S. Pharmacopoeia indicates cannabis can be used for treating ailments such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Fits of coughing
  • Rheumatism
  • Asthma
  • Delirium tremens (alcohol withdrawl)
  • Migraine headaches
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Depression

Side Effects

Some of the negative effects of Marijuana use include destroyed brain cells. It impairs cognitive skills and memory recall. It also affects the hypothalamus gland, which regulates appetite.

Metaphysically speaking, marijuana causes etheric or auric mucus. It causes a dark grayish appearance in the aura, which denotes serious toxicity.

Smoking marijuana also impairs sexual activity. Instead of oxygen circulating to the genitals, carbon monoxide circulates to the genitals.

Smoking marijuana is deleterious for a developing baby in the womb. Be aware that marijuana smoke like all other smoke corrupts and pollutes the bloodstream.

    Q: I heard about Hoodia on the TODAY show on NBC. It's supposed to suppress your appetite for weight loss. I have printed wikepedia for a more formal definition. It's supposed to be natural. Hoodia is a genus of 13 species in the flowering plant family Apocynaceae, under the subfamily Asclepiadoideae. [1] They are stem succulents, described as "cactiform" because of their remarkable similarity to the unrelated cactus family. They can reach up to 1mhigh and have large flowers, often with flesh colour and strong smell. Many Hoodia species are protected plants, typical of the Namib Desert, ranging from Central Namibia to southern Angola, especially in plains and rocky areas. Common names include "Bushman's Hat" and "Queen of the Namib". Several species are grown as garden plants, and one species, Hoodia gordonii, is being investigated for use as an appetite suppressant.

    A:

    Suppression is not cure or healing! You can't solve a problem by suppressing it! A suppressed appetite will manifest in some other area, i.e., an enormous appetite for sex, shopping, drugs, etc. Just because a thing is natural doesn't mean you are addressing the root of the problem, Beloved! It's much deeper than suppressing!

    Q: I was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.

    A:

    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: Dherbs, I am experiencing some degree of headaches on my forehead on the left side. I have had about four surgeries for this thinking its related to my sinus, but no relief. I recently started to get some headaches on the back of my head, and neck pains. I took an MRI, and I am not sure of the result the doctor said it seem to be some abnormality on the back of my head may be from birth, he refered me to a nurogolist. Give me some advice on what I can do with herbs, I have already taken your Total Male Cleanse, your Weight Release Cleanse, the Full Body Detox, and just about to finish your Respiratory Cleanse, about 8 more days to go after I have your 10 Day Supreme Cleanse to start next week give me some advice on what course to take alternatively.

    A:

    How long have you been experiencing the headaches? You've taken some powerful cleanses thus far. Regardless of what cleanse, start drinking Headache Tea daily. I make it, and add maple syrup, lemon juice, and chill it. This helps for my headaches which are sporadic.

I battle MS and I received the results of the MRI, and it shows that my ventriculers went from 8-9mm to 1.2 cm.( I was told it is atrophy) I believe I will be healed, but I am at a lost of what to do next.

    Keep doing everything you're doing. Take 3 capsules of Brain Tuner formula 2-3 times per day. Drink 1-2 cups of Brain Tuner per day as well. Also, do not worry! Think positive as you consume the herbs daily and eat a mostly vegan/raw foods diet.

    Q: I am a 38 yr old single black female smoker desiring pregnancy. 3 yrs. ago I was diagnosed with pcos, type II diabetes as a result, along with a fibroid on the left side of my uterus. After much research, I have come to believe in your philosophy of healing from within, in an all natural manner. Although I am in the process of making drastic lifestyle changes from a sad diet to vegan and anti smoking, I feel as though I am in need of western medical assistance. I have scheduled an appointment with a gynecologist, for next week, but still plan on ordering the FULL BODY DETOX and FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME with the next two weeks. My question to you is this: What could be the possible side of effects of such drugs as metformin, clomiphene citrate, or a combination of the two for fertility while I am on your prescribed FULL BODY DETOX and FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME?

    A:

    IF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE DRUGS THEN DON'T TAKE THE HERBS AS YOU'RE JUST WASTING MONEY. HERBS WILL CANCEL DRUGS OUT BECAUSE HERBS CLEAN THE BODY OF TOXINS AND DRUGS ARE TOXINS. TAKING HERBS AND DRUGS SIMULTANEOUSLY DEFEAT THE PURPOSE IN ALL TRUTH BELOVED.

    Q: Peace and Love my Dear Friend! I have been managing thorough the healing process. I had my monthly checkup last week at Kaiser, I knew the blood count reading was going to be low because of the heavy bleeding. Well as it turns out it was so low Kaiser repeatedly called me to go to the nearest emergency room for a blood transfusion. I told them that I was not interested in a blood transfusion. I was told that I was risking a stroke or heart attack. I am concerned as I am experiencing weakness, headaches, and shortness of breath. I also took a pelvic ultrasound which showed two small fibroids remaining. I passed about 10 fibroids in the last three months. When we met, you mentioned your friend who beat breast cancer. You mentioned a oxygen therapy that she utilized where she had a needle inserted into the tumor containing a form oxygen. Can you get me some information on the oxygen therapy she used. You also mentioned a oxygen machine that you sell that would oxygenize drinking water. Any information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    You don't need a blood transfusion, you need to build up your blood with herbs, i.e. NETTLE, YELLOW DOCK, BURDOCK, DANDELION, IRISH MOSS, etc. or Dherbs BLOOD & LYMPHATIC and/or IRON PHOSPHATE formula.

    Most of all DON'T WORRY because you're body will respond -- guaranteed! Doctors are always telling Black women this to get them to undergo surgery, blood transfusions, take poisonous iron pills, etc.

    In re stroke or heart attack caveat (warning), start taking herbs (drinking tea) of PERIWINKLE, HAWTHORNE BERRIES, GINGER, and CINNAMON immediately or Dherbs CARDIOVASCULAR and STROKE BUSTER formulas.

    In re headaches, herbs of WHITE WILLOW BARK, FEVERFEW, MEADOWSWEET, GINKO BILOBA or Dherbs HEADACHE formula.

    A chakra balancing may do you some good too right about now. I have a few openings for this Wednesday and Thursday if you are interested.

    I will contact Gennifer about the oxygen therapy procedure. I sell Ozone machines for $400 (which we don't advertise on the site). Oxygen will do you some good.

    START juicing with CELERY, APPLE, GINGER (just a little bit), BEET, and CARROT now!!!!!! This will help to build up the blood.

    Stay positive! You are releasing from the heart (emotions), but the shortness of breath denote your life force is low right now, the headache denotes resistance, the weakness denotes lack of strength (spiritually due to it being zapped by past and present life issues.

    Doctor visits may not be wise in the future. You'll only walk away with bad news that will create more worry on your mind which your body will respond to. You might as well go all herbal and natural.

    The two remaining fibroids are due to resistance, they fibroids are holding on as a sign that in some area of your life (emotionally) you're still holding on to something.

    Try to laugh! Think only of happy things. Think of things to feel good about! Lay down, listen to some good music (classical would be ideal). Go to the beach and bury your feet in the sand. Is romeo on the scene? Experience romance if he is! Love, live, laugh, lose, let go, luxuriate, etc.
