The Blessing of Mother Cannabis:
Oh Blessed Lord, may all sick children’s cries
be transformed into healthy, raucous peels of laughter!
This page is a testimony to the One Living God, to His miracles, and to His Hand that is in our lives every day.
May His miracles come into your life through the Holy Cannabis (k’nah bosem), which our Lord gave to humankind through Moses and the Apostles of Jesus Christ.
“He who believes will be saved.”
SHYLOH STURM (at 3 Years Old)
Shyloh has received NO Western medical treatment or pharmaceuticals. Her congenital brain cancer, strokes, brain anoxia (severe loss of oxygen),
right-sided heart failure, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy were treated exclusively with cannabis.
German doctors secretly attempted to murder Shyloh at two months old (using a lumbar puncture to collapse her brain), but cannabis saved her life from the massive brain injury that resulted. Again, cannabis preserved her life when German doctors, still determined to end her life, used a ventricular puncture to remove cerebral spinal fluid and blood from Shyloh's brain without anesthesia or parental knowledge.
Shyloh is the ONLY living survivor of the German government's secret Infanticide and experimentation programs on children with cancer. Cannabis is the reason why she is still here.
MOTHER CANNABIS: The Protector of Innocents
THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO THE ENDLESS MILLIONS OF VICTIMS OF THE INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CABAL'S SECRET EXPERIMENTATION PROGRAMS RUN IN HOSPITALS AROUND THE WORLD.
Our daughter, Shyloh Sturm, was born with metastasized brain cancer, cerebral palsy, strokes, and severe epilepsy. According to the medical literature, she could not live longer than three months. While doctors were busily preparing for her death, we treated all four of her “untreatable” conditions ourselves using a special cannabis (marijuana) tea that we made for her when she was two months old. (Shyloh had two German doctor prescriptions for the THC.) In order to treat Shyloh successfully, we had to conduct extensive research—which is how we discovered that heirloom, landrace cannabis sativa plants, combined with hemp flowers, fully treat cerebral palsy, stroke, and epilepsy, and cure even the most aggressive forms of cancer.
Currently, the Apostles’ Oil—a hemp seed oil infused with cannabis flowers—gives us full control over Shyloh’s "untreatable" cerebral palsy and epilepsy. It has helped her recover from multiple arterial and venous strokes and has cured her metastasized brain cancer. Shyloh is now nearly 3 years old, and she is happy and fully functional. In other people, the Apostles' Oil has treated Stage 4 non-small cell metastasized lung cancer, schizophrenia, advanced systemic sarcodisosis, manic-depressive disorder, and many other conditions. With each day, new illnesses are being conquered using the Apostles' Oil.
Isn’t it time to welcome the miraculous into your life?

Before directions can be given for how to make the teas and oils, the different types of medicinal cannabis must be explained:
Landrace Cannabis Indica Flowers: These are flowers from original, heirloom cannabis plants that produce hash; these compounds cause body effects like sleepiness or “couch-lockedness.” These plants treat sleep disorders, offer strong pain relief, and treat injury to the brain’s limbic system. If landrace Cannabis indica cannot be found, modern indica strains with medium-to low THC levels can act as a medicinal replacement.
Landrace Cannabis Sativa Flowers: These are flowers from heirloom sativa plants [i.e., plants that have not been genetically modified and are found growing in the wild; they look nothing like modern cannabis]. They create head effects, keeping a person alert and awake. As these landraces are no longer available in the West, they must be grown from seeds. Landrace Cannabis sativa plants control and treat nearly all neurological disorders, with a powerful effect on epilepsies of the cortex (the outer part of the brain)—therefore, landrace Cannabis sativa is essential for the treatment of serious neurological conditions like epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Gulf War illnesses, brain tumors, etc.
Modern Cannabis Flowers [“Buds”]: These are the Cannabis indica strains commonly available in dispensaries (and on the street); they are typically smoked recreationally. While some of these strains are called “high sativa” [i.e., they are supposed to be mostly Cannabis sativa], most modern strains are actually indica. Modern indica plants have been bred for indoor growth, large flowers, and high THC levels—not for medicinal value. To find medicinal strains of modern cannabis that can act as a decent replacement for landrace Cannabis indica, choose ones that are mostly indica, with medium-to-low THC levels. High-THC modern strains are generally only useful for severe pain, and they are extremely dangerous for anyone with any form of thought disturbance (i.e., depression, schizophrenia, manic-depression, PTSD, etc.), as they can seem to make a person’s condition worse.
[NOTE: “High-sativa” modern cannabis strains do not seem to have the same strong medicinal effects as landrace sativas. Likely, modern "sativas" are just indicas without the myrcene (the compound in cannabis that causes sleepiness and likely affects the limbic system, creating anti-inflammatory effects—perhaps explaining myrcene’s benefit as an anti-depressant). Rick Simpson Oil or RSO [see description below] is the only modern cannabis product that comes close to matching the medicinal effects of landrace sativas.]
Hemp Flowers: Hemp—grown industrially for rope and cooking oil—is a non-narcotic type of Cannabis sativa, with unique medicinal properties that are entirely different from landrace sativas or modern cannabis strains. Hemp’s high CBD content relieves autoimmune diseases, inflammation, almost all illnesses of the body, and disorders of the brain membranes. It works on the inner and lower parts of the brain, causing sleepiness; it also 100% treats cerebral palsy. Hemp is essential for all brain injuries or tumors, as it reduces swelling and promotes immediate healing. (Shyloh would not be alive without hemp flowers). Hemp, combined with small amounts of cannabis, is essential in treating all forms of cognitive seizure disorders (depression, schizophrenia, manic depression, etc.). It is likely that hemp also contains high levels of myrcene, like Cannabis indica, as it has the same sleep-inducing effects. You can get hemp here: Kanapinisor at http://www.apollyon.nl/cbd-olie/cbd-rich-hemp/
NOTE: For treating any form of seizure disorder, hemp (being a sativa) is always a better choice as a source of CBD than low-THC/ high-CBD modern indica strains.
NOTE: Recently, going against centuries of medical evidence, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration rescheduled CBD—the primary cannabinoid in hemp—as Schedule 1 (i.e., “addicting and no medicinal value”). The U.S. Government now appears to be seizing some hemp shipments into the country; as there are no on-line sellers within the USA, getting hemp flowers may be difficult.
RSO: Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, is made from modern cannabis plants. It is highly concentrated, and comes in tubes (for ordering, contact Brian at www.TheHealthCure.org and ask him specifically for this oil, or contact http://caregiversforlife.net/colorado-cannabis-oil-aka-phoenix-tears-rso-rick-simpson-oil/).
NOTE: As RSO has very high levels of cancer-killing THC, it should always used with an oil infused with hemp/ CBD (see the Apostles’ Oil below) to counteract the effects of the THC. This is especially true when giving RSO to children.
CBD RSO Oil: A CBD version of Rick Simpson Oil made from hemp (talk to Brian at www.TheHealthCure.org). It also comes in tubes.
Cold-Pressed Hemp Oil: This is an oil made from hemp seeds. Oil made from both hemp seeds and hemp flowers has the strongest medicinal power, by far, but it is often impossible to find because of existing laws.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some people are wary about using cannabis to treat their cancer, Alzheimer’s, etc., because they are concerned about psychotropic effects. Be aware that CBD from hemp counteracts the psychotropic effects of THC in cannabis (marijuana). (Note: high-CBD medicinal cannabis strains seem to be much less effective at countering the psychotropic effects of THC than hemp). Therefore, we recommend that anyone taking RSO make the hemp flower oil or tea described below to counteract the THC effects. Any child, especially under 10 years old, who is getting any form of medicinal cannabis should always receive some quantity of hemp flower oil or tea to remove any psychotropic effects from THC, and also to provide additional medicinal compounds. When treating the epilepsies that are commonly referred to as "mental illness," (clinical depression, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, etc.), it is essential to use hemp flower tea/ oil every 3 hours during the day to control symptoms—especially if the person is also taking THC.
NOTE: Cannabis used in milk-based medicine can be heated in the oven for 20-60 minutes at 240° F (115° C). This will convert the THC precursor compound into THC, which increases the level of THC in the tea. If this is done with hemp, it should also slightly raise the THC levels without affecting CBD levels, turning hemp into a very low-THC sativa. To treat patients (like children) who cannot tolerate high levels of THC, don’t heat the cannabis at all, or only heat it for 20 minutes. To get the highest THC levels, heat the cannabis for at least 1 hour.
--2 grams of landrace sativa flowers [or an adequate replacement for them, like using 0.5 ml – 1.0 ml of RSO in the tea, etc.]; to treat adults, at least 6 grams of flowers will need to be used [or at least 2.0-6.0ml of RSO, as a substitute]
--1 liter whole milk
--1 teaspoon of soy lecithin
*--OPTIONAL (when not using the nighttime tea): 2 grams hemp flowers (to lower the tea’s psychotropic effects)
How to Make the Daytime Tea
For an infant, place 2 grams of landrace sativa flowers [or an adequate replacement for them, like RSO or tincture, etc.] into 1 liter of whole milk (to treat adults, you will need to use at least 6 grams of flowers). Buy soy lecithin from the grocery store, and add 1 teaspoon of it to the milk to increase absorption of the medicinal compounds. If you wish to lower the psychotropic effects of the THC while increasing the tea’s medicinal benefits, put in 2 grams of hemp flowers.
As landrace Cannabis sativa flowers are impossible to buy in the West and must be grown at home, they can be replaced by Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) which can be purchased online using the above links. The effective dose of RSO (which must be squeezed out of a tube) should be at least 0.5 ml - 1 ml RSO per batch of tea (and much higher for adult treatment).
For a better taste, cinnamon and honey (sugar) can be added to the tea, as well as other medicinal plants like goji berries or graviola (I put RSO onto a graviola leaf, and then drop the leaf into the pot of tea). A stronger medicine can be created by using hash; if no cannabis is available, hash can be used as an effective medicinal replacement for it. In truth, any source of cannabis can be used for this tea—RSO, hash, “high-sativa” modern strains, landrace Cannabis sativa strains, tinctures, oils, etc. It is just a matter of what is available and affordable in the current climate of Marijuana Prohibition. The versatility of this milk tea ensures that no sick child will ever go without medicine.
--40 grams or more of hemp flowers for a child, 70 grams for an adult
--2 grams of modern high indica cannabis flowers
--1 teaspoon of soy lecithin
--1 liter milk
--(if available) 0.5ml of CBD RSO oil [it comes in a tube and must be squeezed out]
For an infant, place 4 grams or more of hemp flowers into 1 liter of whole milk (to treat adults you will need to use at least 8 grams of flowers). For a better taste, add cinnamon and/or honey (sugar). Other medicinal plants can be added as well. If there are no modern indica cannabis flowers available, double the CBD RSO oil. Hash from an indica strain can also be added to the tea to boost CBD levels and potency (especially if it is a high-CBD hash).
NOTE: Unpasteurized “raw” milk is always best if you can buy it from a small local dairy farmer (rates of infection from contamination from unpasteurized and pasteurized milk are identical, so there is no risk, and unpasteurized milk is far healthier).
NOTE: Pumped breast milk can be used for children under 6 months old who are breastfeeding
Heat the tea on a low flame in a double boiler for 1-2 hours, stirring regularly. The tea will last in the refrigerator for only two days, so put all extra tea into freezer-safe bottles and freeze them until you need them. (It is also possible to make multiple batches of tea in advance, storing weeks worth of medicine in the freezer.) Once the tea is done, strain it, making sure all medicine is squeezed from the flowers.
NOTE: Milk froths at 60 C, so it should not be heated beyond 55 C.
NOTE: RSO will not mix into the milk without soy lecithin.
NOTE: To make a more concentrated tea, reduce the milk to 0.5 liter or double the amount of each ingredient.
NOTE: Whipping cream can be added to the milk as a source of fat for the medicine, and it also adds important calories for the sick.
The easiest way to administer tea to a sick infant is by using a syringe without a needle (which is the method used in pediatric hospital wards). You can buy needleless syringes at the pharmacy. We use 3 ml syringes to administer Shyloh’s medicine. Just push gently the medicine into the corner of the child’s mouth, releasing about 1ml at a time—or however much the child can comfortably swallow. An alternative to needleless syringes are plastic eye droppers.
NOTE: With epileptic children who are already seizing, try to administer the medicine between seizures (as a seizing epileptic may have swallowing problems). If administering a dose to a seizing child, be careful to keep the tip of the syringe pointed downward and away from the child’s eyes.
When Shyloh was two years old, her normal dose was 0.4 ml of daytime tea and 0.6 ml of nighttime tea every 2 hours (this CBD to THC ratio should be similar to the Charolette's Web strain). In Shyloh’s first year, she received half this dose, with 0.3 ml daytime tea and 0.3 ml nighttime tea every 2 hours.
NOTE: Currently, we use oils to medicate her: one with landrace sativa, one with hemp flower, and a third with modern cannabis strains. She receives the following amounts in needleless syringes approximately every 2 hours: 0.4ml modern strain oil, 1.0ml landrace sativa oil, and 1.0ml hemp flower oil. Shyloh’s breakthrough epileptic seizures are controlled by 0.4 ml of landrace sativa oil. Her breakthrough cerebral palsy spasms are controlled by 0.4ml of hemp flower oil. If she has a very strong seizure, we also give her an additional dose of her regular medicine with the extra sativa or hemp oil.
If a dose is too high, there are no adverse effects whatsoever; the child will simply get sleepy and nap. If this happens, either reduce the dose, or reduce the amount of cannabis (RSO) in the medicine. If, on the other hand, the medicine is not having any obvious effect on the child’s symptoms, increase the dose and/or the amount of cannabis (RSO) in the medicine. Keep adjusting until you get the desired effect without making the child drowsy.
Dosing should always be determined by symptoms. When a child has many serious symptoms, focus on treating the most life-threatening ones first (in Shyloh’s case, we began by treating her generalized seizures, then her tonic seizures, then her cerebral palsy, and finally her sleep problems). As Shyloh's symptoms worsen after sundown, from 5pm until sleep time, we dose her every hour instead of every two hours.
I always tried to use the lowest dose possible to achieve an optimum medicinal effect. It is likely that if one were to substantially increase the dose in the teas, one could achieve effects lasting more than two hours.
NOTE: With children who talk, and with adults, the next oral dose should be administered when the person is feeling the medicine peaking, not when the effects begin to wear off. This is because oral cannabis medicine takes at least 30 minutes to start taking effect. By administering the medicine at the peak of the previous dose, the current administration of medicine will begin taking effect just as the last dose begins to wear off. This creates a constant level of medicine.
NOTE: Strict, two-hour dosing during the night can destroy both the parents’ and the child’s sleep, so it is important to adjust nighttime dosing as described below.
As with the teas, you can also make oils for night and day. Using hemp flowers creates a nighttime mixture to promote sleep and to treat cerebral palsy, while sativa flowers can be used for a daytime mixture to treat epilepsy and other conditions. We also make a third oil with modern strains. You can also mix the different types of cannabis together into one oil. Oils containing hemp are essential for treating cognitive seizure disorders (depression, mania, PTSD, delusions, etc.)
--40-50 grams hemp flowers for an infant, 70 grams or more for an adult to make a night oil, 5 grams of landrace cannabis sativa (or a substitute) for a daytime oil
--1 liter cold-pressed hemp oil (can be purchased at most health food stores); if hemp oil is unavailable, use 1 liter of extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil
--one teaspoon of soy lecithin
*you will also need to purchase a deep-fryer
How to Make the Apostles’ Oil
I recommend buying medicinal quality hemp oil made from seeds (cold-pressed if possible). Do not fill the pot of your deep-fryer more than 1/4 of the way with hemp oil! You will be boiling the oil for about 15 minutes total. Start boiling at around 40 C and let it cook at this temperature for ten minutes. Then, work the temperature up to about 80 C, until the oil begins to boil. Let it sit at 80 C for about 5 minutes to boil off the most volatile compounds. Then slowly heat it to 110 C to carboxylate the precursor cannabinoids into THC. Deep fry the hemp flowers in the oil for about 5 minutes (do not let it fry too long, as the hemp will burn and leave a burnt taste in the oil). Turn off the deep-fryer. Put the oil and fried hemp flowers in a jar. You can start using the oil immediately, though we recommend letting the flowers sit inside the jar for a week or two before straining the oil (which should have turned nearly black). This creates a powerful medicine that treats most serious medical conditions. I use about 40-50 grams of hemp to 1 liter of hemp oil to make a very concentrated oil. Add one teaspoon of soy lecithin to the oil infusions to help hold more medicinal compounds within the oil.
WARNING: With some hemp oils, as compounds boil off, the oil will expand and froth. If you heat your oil too quickly, it could quickly boil over—if the oil expands more than 1/2 way up the pot, immediately turn off the heat and wait for the froth to collapse before heating again. Some oils froth very little and others froth violently, so be careful.
NOTE: After straining the oil, do not throw away the leavenings (the left-over flowers and seeds)! They contain valuable medicine. Grind the leavenings in a small coffee grinder, strain them, and put the “sludge” back into your jar of hemp oil.
An adult dose of infused hemp oil for treatment of serious illnesses like cancer or epilepsy would be about 2.0 mls every 2-3 hours when awake. This amount can be increased, or the dosing can be done more frequently (i.e., every hour), depending on the seriousness of the illness. As hemp oil and hemp flowers are both affordable and readily available on-line, this medicinal oil can be made easily and should be used as soon as possible in the event of serious illness or injury (i.e., at the first sign of stroke or immediately after any kind of traumatic head injury, etc.). As the oil is very strong, start with low doses and work upwards.
NOTE: When putting concentrates into the oil—like hash or RSO—use the deep-fryer method while adding a teaspoon of soy lecithin.
NOTE: Hemp seed oil is preferred for its medicinal properties. But if hemp oil is unavailable, olive oil can be substituted.
WARNING: Be aware that virtually all olive oil sold in the U.S. and Europe is adulterated, usually with canola oil or some other cheap substitute. To test if your olive oil is real, place it in the refrigerator overnight. If it completely thickens, it should be real (real virgin oil will thicken in a few hours, less pure oil will take about a day). This is another why reason hemp seed oil is preferred for medicinal oil, as it is rarely adulterated.
When to Use Oil, Tea, Tincture or Concentrates?
Precise dosing with cannabis concentrates (i.e., RSO or hash), even when diluted in oil, is virtually impossible to get with an infant. This is why milk tea is the better solution for sick babies. Alcohol-based tinctures can be put into the tea, but great care should be taken to boil off the alcohol.
These are the pros and cons of the teas and oils:
Infused Hemp Flower Oil
The nighttime tea described above controls our daughter’s non-spastic cerebral palsy, while the daytime tea controls her epileptic seizures. Her spastic cerebral palsy appears to require high levels of hemp flower oil for treatment. Her ADHD (a result of injury to her brain) is fully treated by hemp. If she gets breakthrough epileptic seizures, I give her extra daytime tea (hemp oil mixed with landrace sativa strains; RSO oil or tincture can also be used). If she starts getting non-spastic cerebral palsy symptoms (which begin as ADHD-like symptoms), I give her extra nighttime tea. Thus, as symptoms emerge, I adjust the dosages accordingly.
There is no fixed ratio for nighttime to daytime medicines; each child will need different doses depending on their injuries. Start with equal amounts of day and night medicine. If there are periods during the day when the epilepsy seems worse, increase the daytime medicine during that period. If cerebral palsy symptoms seem to get worse during a certain time of the day, increase the nighttime medicine during that period. By observing symptoms, one can find the perfect ratio between the two medicines.
For epileptic children, sleep is critical, so disturbing their sleep to medicate them is detrimental to their healing. The best solution is to have the child sleep with the parent. When the child wakes (usually from mild seizures during light sleep, as the medicine wears off), the parent can easily administer medicine (keep the medicine by the bedside). The child should quickly fall back asleep, with the medicine soon taking effect. If the child resists taking a dose of medicine, don’t force it, as it is more important for the child to stay asleep. (You can also make an extra strong medicine for the nighttime, requiring smaller doses. Doing this can reduce night dosing to 2-3 times a night, with medication once the child wakes in the morning. You can also experiment with giving a higher dose just before bedtime.)
In the early stages of Shyloh’s treatment, her symptoms were so severe and completely uncontrollable that she needed medicine every 30 minutes, day and night. After two weeks of treatment, she received medicine approximately every hour. Finally, after two months of treatment, she received her medicine every two hours. Let the child’s symptoms be your guide to dosing—rather than some fixed schedule.
For children who have cancer with no seizures:
--During the day: Give an equal dose of nighttime medicine (tea or oil) to daytime medicine (tea or oil), administered every 2 hours, with a double dose right before sleep. For information on doses, see the “Dosing” section above.
--At night: Give a normal dose once in the night (if this is not too disturbing to the child), and a double dose in the morning upon waking.
If the cancer is active and growing, doses can be increased substantially from the levels recommended in the “Dosing” section, with no adverse effects whatsoever. Again, let the symptoms be your guide. When they start to abate, you know the medicine is working. Cannabis appears to immediately arrest metastasis. The tumors, themselves, usually start shrinking in 2-4 weeks.
Children and adults with brain tumors will go through several obvious transitions as cannabis shrinks the tumors and the brain begins to heal. The first change usually occurs within the first two days of vigorous treatment, and is caused by a reduction of swelling in the brain. Once a tumor begins to shrink, any displaced brain tissue will begin to move back to its original place. This will often cause healing crises that can result in breakthrough seizures. Do not be alarmed. Healing crises remind us that the cancer is going away!
It is import to understand that when severe brain injury occurs, the body often turns off its ability to feel pain. As cannabis reduces tumors, with normal functioning returning, there may be a sudden awareness of pain in the body from old injuries or disease. This should not be confused with a worsening of symptoms.
It is important to carefully learn a child’s symptoms. If a child experiences a sudden increase in the number of daily seizures, but her condition otherwise remains stable, it is likely that she is experiencing a healing crisis. Shyloh went through many healing crises, each lasting about 3-5 days. If the symptoms do not subside after 5 days, or they include serious symptoms, increase the medicinal dose until the symptoms are under control again. If problems persist, have the tumors checked with diagnostic tests to see if there are any adverse changes. Of course, if any of the new symptoms are life-threatening, get medical help immediately.
Healing crises may also arise during critical periods of growth. When Shyloh was 2.5-years-old, she started having two to four breakthrough seizures a day. Three months later, they are stabilized. As there were no negative changes in her symptoms, and she was advancing and improving every day, these seizures were likely the result of her brain growing and reorganizing as she recovered.
NOTE: Healing crises generally only last 3-5 days; it is recommended that dosing regimes be maintained during healing crises, if possible.
Don’t forget to increase the dose as the child gets larger. In small children, check for a change in weight if there is a worsening of symptoms.
Adults should be dosed in the same way as children, only with much higher doses (see the “Dosing” section above for details; the doses given here are for a ~20-pound child, so adjust accordingly for the increase in weight). Dosing should always be based on an improvement in symptoms. Keep upping the dose until an optimum level of healing is achieved.
“Terminal” cancer patients can halt any metastasis and start reversing their illness by using as high a dose as is affordable or possible, given every 2 hours for at least 3 weeks until symptoms improve. Once tumors have shrunk and the illness goes into remission, cancer patients should continue a reasonable maintenance dose for long-term. Again, let symptoms be your guide. When they start to improve, you know the medicine is working. Our cannabis protocol appears to immediately arrest metastasis; tumors, themselves, usually start shrinking in 2-4 weeks. The protocol has worked on all types of tumors and cancers.
Nearly all so-called “mental illnesses” are actually easily treatable seizure disorders of the brain. These epileptic seizures are caused by some kind of traumatic brain injury—poor forceps delivery, a bad fall, high fever during pregnancy or the first three years of life, childhood head trauma, etc. “Depression,” “anxiety disorder,” “bipolar disorder,” "PTSD" etc. are all caused by right (and possibly left) temporal lobe injury (see "How information is controlled on the Internet" to see how this is hidden from patients); “schizophrenia” is from left temporal lobe injury. Addiction is the result of frontal lobe injury. Patients needn’t plumb the depths of their past to uncover the alleged “cause” of their depression or addiction. They just need to treat themselves with cannabis, known for over a century to be the most effective medicine for epileptic seizure disorders.
Study after study has proven unequivocally that cannabis is NOT addictive. This is a known, physiological fact. You cannot ever overdose or die from cannabis. Individuals with frontal lobe injury, who are susceptible to addiction, can use cannabis to turn off the addictive mechanism in the brain triggered by their injuries (alcoholics often also use cannabis to moderate their alcoholism).
NOTE: As depression, schizophrenia, etc. are caused by seizures in the temporal lobes, they likely require a combination of both THC and CBD. Start with only CBD/hemp flowers and see the effects. If symptoms are not fully controlled, try using a small amount of THC/cannabis with the hemp flowers. The THC levels can be slowly increased to find the optimum ratio, but should not exceed one part CBD/hemp to two parts THC/cannabis until the person has been stabilized with the medicine. One of the best methods of treatment is infused hemp flower oil with a small amount of cannabis added. As a general rule, anxiety disorders require hemp flowers; anger disorders require both hemp and cannabis.
NOTE: Be careful if you are also getting THC or CBD from sources other than tea or oil. Vaporizing or smoking joints increase THC levels, which should be taken into consideration when determining medicinal THC to CBD ratios.
We made a remarkable discovery when working with our daughter (whose upper brain injury causes epilepsy and whose lower brain injury causes cerebral palsy): THC and CBD are fully antagonistic in the human brain. In other words, THC blocks CBD, and CBD blocks THC. This means that CBD is an antidote for too much THC. Shyloh’s epileptic seizures in her cerebrum (the upper part of the brain) are turned off by the THC in her medicine. However, too much CBD blocks the THC, leading to full epileptic seizures in the upper brain. On the other hand, Shyloh’s cerebral palsy (caused by seizures in the cerebellum and brain stem of the lower brain) is controlled by CBD. Too much THC causes the CBD to be blocked, resulting in lower brain seizures and a return of cerebral palsy symptoms. The ratios of THC to CBD need to be carefully managed for successful treatment when there is upper and lower brain injury. As Shyloh’s hyperactivity and autistic/attention deficit symptoms (ADHD) are part of her cerebral palsy (in other words, they are lower brain injuries), they are successfully treated with infused hemp flower oil.
Clinical depression and schizophrenia result from injuries to the brain’s temporal lobes (specifically, to the mesial temporal lobe portions of the limbic system, which lie between the upper and lower brain). It needs to be repeated that “mental illnesses” are just symptoms of various forms of epilepsy—primarily temporal lobe epilepsy. While some kinds of epilepsy cause the jerking or stiffening of muscles associated with motor seizures, temporal lobe epilepsy creates internal, emotional seizures and symptoms—like visual and auditory hallucinations, depression, severe anxiety, paranoia, manic-depression, panic attacks (PTSD), cutting or repetitive “OCD” behaviors, etc. Not surprisingly, thought/emotion seizures are far more common in the general population than motor (muscle) seizures, effecting as much as half the American population, but these symptoms are almost always misdiagnosed as “mental illness” and left untreated by anti-epileptics such as cannabis.
Cannabis is the most powerful anti-epileptic in the world. As all mental illnesses are actually epilepsies, they are very successfully treated with cannabis.
Common Symptoms of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (*Note: doctors almost never diagnose TLE, though they routinely observe it in their patients):
--intrusive, self-chastising thoughts
--OCD habits like excessive hand-washing
--excessive daydreaming (especially in children)
--cutting rituals; self-mutilation
--loss of memory, especially loss of episodic memory (the ability to maintain time-lines)
--dramatic changes in mood or personality
Most people can talk and function during temporal lobe seizures, but they will appear “zoned out” and have a poor memory of what happened. They might also exhibit subtle changes in personality and speech. Temporal lobe seizures that occur at night may lead to sudden awakenings, with a kind of out-of-body feeling and inability to control one’s body. This continues until the seizure ends and the person fully awakens. Often a person will make vocalizations, as if having a nightmare, but s/he cannot be awoken until the seizure ends.
Shyoloh’s symptoms that arise from injuries to her brain’s limbic system are controlled by high levels of CBD, while high levels of THC lead to seizures in her limbic system. As depression and schizophrenia arise from injuries in the limbic system and are symptoms of seizures in this part of the brain, these symptoms can be worsened by very high levels of THC. People using medicinal cannabis to treat mental illness must be cautioned about high-THC cannabis strains, which could lead to psychotic breaks or automatisms that result in self-injury, or even suicide. This is likely why Dronabinol—synthetic, pharmaceutical THC—has been known to cause hallucinations and psychotic breaks in certain individuals. (Personally, I know a temporal lobe epileptic with depression and anxiety disorder who went into full seizures from smoking high-THC cannabis. This person also had seizures from eating very high-THC cannabis cake. I have seen the same effects in a schizophrenic.)
The symptoms of temporal lobe epilepsy—depression, PTSD, schizophrenia, anxiety, OCD, etc.—can be treated with infused hemp flower oil with a little cannabis added (either landrace or recreational). Take 2-5ml every 2 hours during the day. In such a way, the THC stays at an optimum level in the body for safe and functional treatment. If medicated in this way, it is safe for someone with epilepsy to use regular cannabis, as long as the THC levels are moderate. Generally, a paranoid, unpleasant experience with a particular cannabis strain means that the THC levels are probably too high.
Since the dawn of time, humankind has treated itself with symptom-based medicine—the same method that I used with my daughter Shyloh. It is no coincidence that landrace Cannabis sativa treats upper brain injury (epilepsy), while hemp (another type of Cannabis sativa with lower THC and high CBD) treats lower brain injury (cerebral palsy). “Landrace” means the original, heirloom cannabis plant, not adulterated by modern genetic modification. Our ancestors discovered that these landrace plants treated epilepsy and cerebral palsy, and so they carefully bred them for this purpose. Just as we use chemistry to make pharmaceuticals today, our ancestors used extremely advanced plant breeding techniques to make their medicine. Our ancestors’ work to turn landrace Cannabis sativa into anti-epileptic medicine, and its cousin hemp into a cerebral palsy medicine, is still locked into the genetics of the plants.
The basis of Eastern religion involves the three gunas (natures): rajasic (high energy), tamasic (heavy, low energy) and satvic (a perfect balance of the two). Working with my daughter, it is clear that the concept of the gunas arose in large part from treating brain injury—especially in children like my daughter, who had upper and lower brain problems. In my daughter’s case, epilepsy gives her tonic seizures that make her body get rigid (i.e., tamasic). Whereas the cerebral palsy activates her body and puts it into constant motion (rajasic). Using this information, our ancestors unlocked the secrets of the human mind and how to treat brain injury. To bring a tamasic epileptic child (i.e., with upper brain injury) into a balanced, satvic state, a rajasic landrace Cannabis sativa was used. Anyone who has experienced landrace Cannabis sativa knows that it gives a very energetic head high (i.e., a rajasic experience). On the other hand, to bring a child with rajasic cerebral palsy (lower brain injury) into a balanced, satvic state, tamasic hemp was used. If you use hemp alone, it gives a heavy, sleepy, tamasic high. Undoubtedly “soma,” the sacred spiritual substance ingested in Vedic times, was either partly or entirely landrace cannabis. Cannabis sativa and hemp contained the two basic natures (rajasic and tamasic) that could be used to bring the mind into a balanced (satvic) state.
Note: Cannabis indica—the most common form of “recreational” cannabis used today—was probably never more than a narcotic substitute for poppies, used primarily for pain relief.
Traditionally, people with epilepsy have always been our shamans, poets, and visionaries. Epilepsy opens the mind to “holy states,” in which the voice of God/ Oneness/ Spirit can be heard. As these channels can become overwhelming, cannabis was used to control the gateways. Biblically, during the time of the First Holy Temple, Jewish priests (kohenim) were epileptics who controlled their seizures with kan’h bosem (or cannabis, the main ingredient in the Holy Anointing Oil).
So what happened to the Biblical epileptics—those prophets and visionaries alive during the time of the First Temple—in the second Temple time of Jesus? It is well documented that the Holy Anointing Oil, whose main ingredient was cannabis, was not used during the Second Temple time; in other words, it did not exist in Israel in the time of Jesus, despite its documented use in neighboring kingdoms. There appeared to be a prohibition against cannabis. People with epilepsy (the “epileptics”), cerebral palsy (the “paralyzed”), mental illness (“the demon possessed”), and many other ailments were obviously not being treated:
Matthew 4:24: “[Jesus’s] fame spread throughout Syria, and people brought to him everyone who was sick—those afflicted with various diseases and pains, the demon-possessed [i.e., the mentally ill], the epileptics, and the paralyzed—and he healed them.”
As we now know, mental illness, palsy, schizophrenia, and epilepsy are all fully treated by cannabis.
Historical research on medicinal cannabis quickly reveals that these conditions were already being treated in other parts of the world during the time of Jesus [see the book Marijuana Medicine: A World Tour of the Visionary and Healing Powers of Cannabis, by Christian Ratsch], and it is likely that Jesus learned about cannabis’s medicinal properties when living abroad.
While Jesus had the power to heal through faith alone, his apostles did not and needed to use a special oil:
Mark 6: 8-14: “[Jesus] summoned the twelve [apostles] and began to send them out in pairs, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits... And they were driving out many demons, anointing many sick people with oil, and healing them.”
More than 2,000 years later, the Apostles’ Oil has now been rediscovered and it still offers hope and healing to people with “untreatable” medical conditions like epilepsy, metastasized cancer, cerebral palsy, and schizophrenia. Come join us in the miracle
