Cannabis is Food 1st(sm).
Medicine would not be required for “health” with Cannabis as Food 1st.
In Eastern Treatment of Health, Nutritional & Spiritual precede Medicinal and Surgical.
Medicine and Surgery should be preserved as the Last Resorts as they are intended in Hippocrates: Unani System of Spiritual, Nutritional, Medicinal, & Surgical treatment.
Having the discussion of Cannabis as Medicine ahead of Cannabis as Food 1st™ can mislead the public to believe that Cannabis can produce THC.
Whereas, Cannabis cannot produce, nor synthesize THC.
Hemp cannot produce, nor synthesize CBD.
Rather Cannabis/Hemp produce slightly different pre-cursor compounds, Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid Synthase/THCA-Synthase (THCA-S) and Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) in the case of Cannabis, and Cannabidiolic Acid Synthase/CBDA-Synthase (CBDA-S) and Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) in the case of Hemp.
Depending on harvest, dieters can take advantage of both CBGA and THCA-S from Fresh RAW Cannabis plants in their garden, or CBGA and CBDA-Synthase from Fresh RAW Hemp plants in their garden.
Upon harvest THCA-A, B, & C form as THCA-Synthase folds in CBGA (Cannabis), and CBDA forms as CBDA-Synthase folds in CBGA (Hemp).
DRYING & CURING:
Notice I have NOT MENTIONED: delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), or Cannabidiol (CBD).
Because the Cannabis plant DOES NOT “produce, nor synthesize THC/CBD.”
When the plant is Fresh & Raw, THC & CBD ARE NOT PRESENT.
DRYING & CURING cause the THCA-A, B & C to form in DRIED & CURED Cannabis (slang terms for DRIED & CURED: “mariguana”, “marihuana”, “marijuana”).
NOTE: Now you know the DIFFERENCE between Fresh RAW Cannabis & “marijuana”.
WHY? do University Professors, Scientific Researchers, Pharmaceutical Researchers, Marijuana Advocates, Politicians, Police, DEA, FDA, Government Officials, ETC. AND the VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE UNEDUCATED ABOUT CANNABIS…
Call Fresh RAW Cannabis universally by the SLANG TERM for DRIED & CURED ‘marijuana’ WHICH IT BY ALL MEANS – CANNABIS IS NOT.
WHEN? Cannabis IS Food 1st(sm)…
“11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over all the earth
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.“
“THCA-A, B, & C, THCA-Synthase, CBDA-Synthase, CBDA, CBGA, and Cannabisin A-Z (which I didn’t even mention) are ALL – LOST – as the focus on THC and CBD continues premature.
We have Children to Feed in addition to the Patients before Profits.
During cultivation, Cannabis produces the acid CBGA and the enzyme THCA-Synthase which folds in CBGA.
During cultivation, Hemp produces the acid CBGA and the enzyme CBDA-Synthase which folds in CBGA.
These are Cannabis foods.
Humans intervene to to Synthesize THCA-A, B, C in Cannabis, and/or CBDA in Hemp. Otherwise we will eat their precursors as food 1st.
“Cured“, “Fermented“, or “Prepared” Cannabis a.k.a. Medicinal Cannabis is often mistaken for recreational “marijuana”, Hemp’s high-THCA-A Cousin.
“Marijuana” must still be heated or Non-Enzymatically Decarboxylated before THC is present, accounted for and activated.
