Cannabis Research: The Israeli Connection.

Most people don’t associate Israel with cannabis. But the Middle-Eastern nation, slightly larger than New Jersey, is a world leader when it comes to pioneering medical cannabis research and development.

Cannabis Is A Medicine, The FDA Proves It.

We have heard for a long time that “Marijuana isn’t medicine”, and we continue to hear it to this day. The FDA repeats this mantra regularly. Yet this seems to fly in the face of more and more mounting evidence. In addition, there is something I have also heard for a long time that seems […]

Congress And America Respond To AG Sessions Move On Cannabis.

Good People Don't Use The Word "Marijuana"

What If Cannabis Wasn't Evil? Part 2
