Currently , it will not be difficult to find an article, a study, or a test group that is working toward determining the medicinal value of the CBD, and more importantly, the ratio needed between CBD and its counterpart THC for optimum efficacy.
Rick Simpson definitely made a name for himself. However, the accolade for seeds for high CBD plants, in our personal opinion, goes to the breeder Lawrence Ringo of So Hum Seeds (God Rest His Soul). He was instrumental in creating the strain made famous by Dr. Sandja Gupta in his specials for television, "Charlotte's Webb."
We are currently using his Harlequin strain to create a high CBD strain Cannabis available in flower, oil, tincture, salves and seeds.
In short: The CBD found in the Cannabis plant "turns off" the cancer gene found in metastasis.
It is also extremely important to note that making Cannabis oil is illegal. The oil we are referring to is not to be mistaken with the hemp oil people are buying online or at the natural food store.
Currently, 20 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. Because the CBD oil is derived from Cannabis plants, states that legalize it will also be at odds with federal law. But, because the CBD laws are far more restrictive than typical medical cannabis laws, advocates on all sides of the issues recommend putting states that pass them in the medical marijuana column.
A medical 215 recommendation is required to purchase high CBD rich oil.
It is important to note that all products made at the New River Seed Company are made from 100 % organic material. All products have been certified organic and tested. Our goal is to provide the very best medicine available with the resources we have available.
Even most activists against the legalization of marijuana support the testing needed to determine CBD's full potential. The current list of studies available "waiting" for clinical trials is endless. For people in the industry, it creates hope. We have lists of people that the oil is currently successfully helping with: cancer, epilepsy, pain management, sleep; anxiety; breathing; and anorexia to name only a few illnesses. Rich CBD oil is the answer some people are looking for.
Testimonial from Jeannie V. in Boise, ID
“In 2001, I developed a severe cough and a subsequent visit to my Doctor diagnosed me with something called Granular Fibrosis with Sarcoids and scarring in both lungs. My doctor said that terminology best described what I had but, that there was no known “official” name for it.
This condition is actually a growth of tiny nodules in the lungs that resembles grapes, (though much smaller), that impede your breathing in a big way. I used to love taking long walks and being active. Only now I couldn’t breathe well and coughed a lot throughout the day and night. No more long walks or trips. I would be totally out of breath climbing a flight of stairs.
In addition, I also suffered from frequent severe migraine headaches that impaired me so bad that I could only lay still in a quiet, darkened room with a cold towel over my eyes and forehead. I suffered that way for years because the Doctors and Specialists told me there was no cure for this condition.
About a year ago, dear friends of ours told me about Cannabis Oil. I acquired some and began to ingest small doses on a cracker each night before I went to bed. I increased my dose a little at a time. The results are nothing short of miraculous. First, my coughing stopped. Then my energy levels slowly began to increase again. I’m back to taking my walks again with no problems. In addition, though I still get a headache from time to time, I haven’t experienced a migraine since I’ve been on the oil. I now take the oil four times a week and I can sincerely say….it works.”
