Juicing raw cannabis

Hi all,

I came across ingesting (e.g. by juicing) raw cannabis a while ago, and I found it intriguing. As I understand it, by consuming it raw, THCA will not be converted to THC and therefore you won't have any psychoactive effects. In turn, this should allow you to easily take in much more of the cannabinoids in the plant which would be beneficial to one's health.

A few pages with some info are:

should CIS be considered MS?

Should CIS be considered MS? If we assume that MS is the presence of multiple scars, just one lesion should not be considered MS.

On the other hand, normally MS refers the underlying condition that produces the scars. From this point of view CIS should be inside MS when is expected to evolve into clinical MS.

What do you think? What should be the proper way to classify CIS?

THERE IS NO MONEY IN THE CURE!

Day after day, I read through MS chat rooms, to find something that would give me hope...but it has been over 20 Years that I have had MS, and the truth is that NOTHING works and that NOTHING new has been developed. I am still on the some interferon, not because it works, but because it is profitable for drug companies. Furthermore, it is highly profitable for the Government too, as they get to tax ...

As Rituxan was approaching FDA approval for treatment of multiple sclerosis (with very good results), it was also approaching the end of its patent. Therefore the company decided that it was not profitable to pursue the approval process for a treatment that would be available soon from other productors.

The history is explained by ...

Researchers link MS risk genes to Vitamin D

The further away you live from the equator, apparently the more likely you are to be diagnosed with MS. It sounds simple, but since analysis of the genetic determiners of multiple sclerosis began in the '70s, sunlight's factoring in the disease has seemed irreconcilable with its highly complex genetic make-up...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/researchers-link-ms-risk-genes-vitamin-d-220816

Have you tried QUELL for nerve pain?

I just picked one of these units up to try out - it comes with a 60 day full refund (less return shipping) trial period. It is available either direct or through Target or CVS (which saves on shipping charges if you buy locally).

My first impressions... it is very comfortable to wear and I am quite hopeful it will help me. The manufacturer told me that they have not had good success with MS ...
