Medical Marijuana Use: Miracle Medicine Good for Dozens of Diseases

Recently a long-distance patient from Australia sent me a list of the diseases for which marijuana was useful with the website addresses of the references. Here is Granny Storm Crow’s list.

(MOLALLA, Ore.) - When the State of Oregon first legalized Medical Marijuana I disbelieved and was astonished at the diverse medical conditions that State DHS said were acceptable conditions for a permit to use: Cancer, Glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, Cachexia/Anorexia, Severe pain, Severe nausea, Seizures and Muscle spasms.

There was NO medicine effective for all these. I deduced that officials at the DHS were into the evidence lockers someplace and found some GOOD stuff.

I found out soon after I started seeing patients for marijuana permits that the DHS was far too modest about this surprisingly effective medicine. As I continued to see more than 4000 patients I was truly amazed at the diversity of diseases for which marijuana was helpful and more so than standard medicine.

Recently a long-distance patient from Australia sent me a list of the diseases for which marijuana was useful with the website addresses of the references. Here is Granny Storm Crow’s list:

  • Anti-Anguish,
  • Addiction Treatment,
  • Alcoholism Treatment,
  • ALS,
  • Alzheimer’s,
  • Anti-Bacteriacidal,
  • Anti-Inflammatory,
  • Anti-Oxidant/Neuroprotectant,
  • Anxiolytic,
  • Appetite Stimulant,
  • Anti-Arthritis,
  • Anti-Asthma,
  • Anti-Atherosclerosis,
  • Anti-Autism,
  • Anti-Psychotic,
  • AntiHypertensive,
  • Anti-Cancer,
  • Anti-Leukemic,
  • Anti-Hunningtons,
  • Anti-Nauseant,
  • Anti-Morning Sickness,
  • Anti-Cough,
  • Anti-COPD,
  • Anti-Crohns/Colitis,
  • Anti-Depressant,
  • Anti-Dystonia,
  • Anti-Epileptic,
  • Anti-Febril,
  • Anti-Fibromyalgia,
  • Anti-Glaucoma,
  • Anti-Heart Disease, /
  • ADD/ADHD Hepatitis Treatment,
  • Anti-Herpetic,
  • Anti-HIV/AIDS,
  • Anti-Lupus,
  • Anti-Mad Cow Disease,
  • Anti-Migraine,
  • Anti-Multiple Sclerosis,
  • Anti-MRSA,
  • Cannabis Neurogenisis,
  • Anti-Neuropathic Pain,
  • Neuroprotectant,
  • Anti-Obsessive Compulsive Disorder,
  • Anti-Osteoporesis,
  • Strong Analgesic,
  • Anti-Spastic,
  • Anti-Parkinsonism,
  • Anti-PTSD,
  • Anti-Prion Toxicity,
  • Anti-Pruritis,
  • Anti-Schizophrenic,
  • Anti-Psychotic,
  • Sedative/Hypnotic,
  • Anti-Spastic – Spinal Cord Injury,
  • Anti-Stroke/Cerebroprotective,
  • Anti-Tourettes,
  • and Anti-Tobacco – Protectant. div

Even I consider this list to be incomplete.

I can see a whole bunch of people jumping up and down and tearing at their hair about this list. Please understand, I did not make this stuff up and as a Pharmacologist/Toxicologist/Physician I scarcely believe some of it as I was incredulous about the first nine conditions stated by The Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS).

For “Doubting Thomases” don’t bitch at me. Somebody – Granny Storm Crow – must have spent hundreds of hours putting this list together. There are about 10,000 medical articles about cannabis/marijuana. If you have a couple of years to spare start reading them. ALL HAIL GRANNY STORM CROW!

Doc- You've got mail and you're making me blush!I wish everyone would read my list- or at least, just read the titles! And for the "Doubting Thomases"- I didn't do the studies- I just collected them!

Sham Wow - this stuff is so good it even raises the dead. The National Coalition of Morticians for Marijuana study proves beyond doubt that it even reverses the effects of cremation and embalming. Talk about the grateful dead ...

Here, have a look, just google hemp as medicine and read till the cows come home: http://www.phoenixtears.ca/ It is extremely unfortunate that the people of this once great land have lost all perspective on what is right and good.
