Project CBD receives many inquiries from around the world and oftentimes people say they are seeking “ CBD , the medical part” of the plant, “not THC , the recreational part” that gets you high. Actually, THC , “The High Causer,” has awesome therapeutic properties. Scientists at the Scripps Research Center in San Diego reported that THC inhibits an enzyme implicated in the formation of amyloid beta plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s-related dementia. The federal government recognizes single-molecule THC (Marinol) as an anti-nausea compound and appetite booster, deeming it a Schedule III pharmaceutical, a category reserved for drugs with little abuse potential. But whole plant cannabis, which is the only natural source of THC , continues to be classified as a dangerous Schedule I drug with no medical value.
It may be possible to extract CBD oil from some low-resin industrial hemp cultivars, but fiber hemp is by no means an optimal source of CBD . Industrial hemp typically contains far less cannabidiol than high-resin CBD -rich cannabis flower tops. Huge amounts of industrial hemp are required to extract a small amount of CBD , thereby raising the risk of contaminants because hemp is a “bio-accumulator” that draws toxins from the soil. But the debate over sourcing CBD is quickly becoming moot, as plant breeders focus on developing high-resin cannabis varietals (marijuana) that satisfy the legal criteria for industrial hemp – with THC measuring less than 0.3 percent and CBD levels exceeding 10 percent by dry weight. “Pure” CBD extracted and refined from industrial hemp or synthesized in a lab lacks critical medicinal terpenes and other plant compounds that interact with CBD and THC to enhance their therapeutic benefits.

#1 “ CBD is medical. THC is recreational.”
Orally administered CBD is well-tolerated in humans. But concerns about possible harmful side effects, which might limit CBD ’s therapeutic utility and market potential, were raised by misleading reports that CBD converts to high-causing THC in the stomach. It does not (read the evidence). There have been extensive clinical trials demonstrating that ingested CBD —even doses above 600 mg—does not cause THC -like psychoactive effects. On the contrary, CBD in sufficient amounts can lessen or neutralize the THC high. The World Health Organization studied the issue and gave CBD a clean bill of health in a 2017 report that asserted: “Simulated gastric fluid does not exactly replicate physiological conditions in the stomach [and] spontaneous conversation of CBD to delta-9- THC has not been demonstrated in humans undergoing CBD treatment.”
CBD isolates require higher doses to be effective than whole plant CBD -rich oil extracts. But that doesn’t mean single-molecule CBD is a better therapeutic option than CBD -rich cannabis, which has a wider therapeutic window than a CBD isolate. Reports from clinicians and patients suggest that a synergistic combination of CBD , THC , and other cannabis components can be effective at low doses – as little as 2.5 mg CBD and/or 2.5 mg THC . Some patients may require significantly higher doses of CBD oil to obtain satisfactory results. Keep in mind that CBD and THC and cannabis in general have biphasic properties, meaning that low and high doses can produce opposite effects. An excessive amount of CBD could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose.
According to politically correct drug war catechism, the marijuana high is an unwanted side effect. Big Pharma is keen on synthesizing medically active marijuana-like molecules that don’t make people high—although it’s not obvious why mild euphoric feelings are intrinsically negative for a sick person or a healthy person, for that matter. In ancient Greece, the word euphoria meant “having health,” a state of well-being. The euphoric qualities of cannabis, far from being an unwholesome side effect, are deeply implicated in the therapeutic value of the plant. “We should be thinking of cannabis as a medicine first,” said Dr. Tod Mikuriya, “that happens to have some psychoactive properties, as many medicines do, rather than as an intoxicant that happens to have a few therapeutic properties on the side.”

Introducing the CBD Cannabis Oil from The Warrior Project.
Veterans represent 7% of the American population, yet account for 20% of national suicide rate. The suicide rate among veterans is about twice that of the general population, and has been rising among younger veterans who served during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. WFW Project finds these numbers unacceptable. The assistance and prescription programs our veterans are provided with are not working. We believe cannabis is the answer. Watch, read and learn about our goal to use this life saving plant to restore our veterans’ confidence, mental well being, and ability to lead normal healthy lives.

WFW Project participates in a number of social, awareness & advocacy and cannabis community events. By working with the community, WFW Project aims to build a structure for veterans to gain help, comraderie, and safe access to better, natural cannabis based medicine.

Every day, Veterans are being prescribed harsh pharmaceutical drugs that are extremely addictive and have been linked to thousands of Veteran suicides. Cannabis has been proven to help with PTSD, cancer, chronic pain, sleep disorders, crohn’s disease, migraines, addiction withdrawal and has statistically lowered the suicide rate in states where it is legal.
