from the now long gone cannabis.uk.net
I dont know why the website disappeared as well as all the vids. Conspiracy? Maybe because the information was just theoretical? or who knows what else...
Background Info on Raw Cannabis:
Essential Fatty Acids : 30% of the seed is fat, of which 60% is unsaturated Linoleic Acid (LA - Omega 6) and 20% is unsaturated Alpha - Linoleic Acid (LNA - Omega 3). This 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to 3 is well suited to human needs.
Complete easily digestible protein, containing all 8 essential amino acids.
Hemp seeds contain the highest profile of Minerals, Vitamins and Trace elements of any edible seed.
To maximise the nutritional benefits of Hemp seed it is important to pre soak the seeds, unless freshley hasrvested and consumed with the flowers. Pre soaking neutrtalises the enzyme inhibitors and frees up the nutrients making them more bio available. If you don’t pre soak the seeds then you end up stressing your pancreas.
The body thrives in an alkaline state, but the seed of the cannabis plant is slightly acid forming. Even after pre soaking, the seeds remain slightly acid forming. Therefore to maintain a healthy alkaline state within the body it is important to utilize the highly alkalinising leaves and flowers of the Hemp plant. Acid imbalance is a major root problem to the general state of poor health of people consuming a 'westernized' diet of meat, dairy, frozen, cooked, processed and micro waved foods along with the widely popular drugs of refined sugar, alcohol and tobacco. All these drugs/foods create an acid environment, in which diseases thrive.
The highest concentration of electron rich, alkanising, anti-oxident, Cannabinoids are found within the bract. The bract holds the seed, which together comprise the fruit of eternal life, botanicaly known as an achene. So why does ingesting Hemp flowers get most people into a state of ecstatic spiritual bliss? Well firstly there is the fact that you are feeding your body with a perfect balance of essential nutrients, but what really starts blissing you out is when you activate the Cannabinoid receptors. The CB1 Cannabinoid receptor system was only discovered by scientists in the early 1990’s and are located primarily within the brain, mainly in the frontal cortex (which controls thought), the hippocampus (the centre for memory) the cerebellum and basal ganglia (which coordinate motion) and the limbic system (which affects emotions). There are also CB1 receptors on the spinal cord. When THC is ingested it is metabolised by the liver and converted into 11 hydroxy THC which enters the blood stream and sooner or later crosses the blood brain barrier and binds to the CB1 Cannabinoid receptors, activating the release of Dopamine - the ‘bliss drug’ which gets you ‘high’. In 1992, the Scientist who first isolated THC, discovered an endogenous (naturally occurring) Cannabinoid called ‘ananadamide’. The brain also creates another Cannabinoid called 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG). The effects of these endogenous Cannabinoids are similar to THC, and other animals also have CB1 Cannabinoid receptor systems. THC is just one of sixty or so Cannabinoids, all of which, I feel have healing properties. The scientific analysis of these is still being conducted. Not only does the ingestion of Cannabinoids bring us into a state of divine spiritual bliss, it does wonders for the physical body. As plants grow they absorb the Sun’s photon light energy and through the magical alchemical process of photosynthesis convert this into electron rich chlorophyll and unique to the Hemp plant, the super electron rich Cannabinoids of which Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most electron rich molecule in the plant kingdom. As Cannabinoids are ingested they seek out free radical damage (such as tumours and cancers) and rebuild the body on a cellular level bringing us back to our perfect design self. THC also mimics the action of Estradiol, a hormone responsible for healing nerve and brain damage.
The Male Pollen:
Eating the male pollen is also highly beneficial as it is a highly complex structured protein, with a wide spectrum of nutrients, growth hormones, uncorrupted DNA and high levels of lecithin which help build brain and organ tissue. The protein within pollen contains high levels of tryptophan which is a precursor to serotonin an important neurotransmitter involved in waking consciousness which converts into a regulatory hormone (melatonin) that shuts down the organ systems, quieting the body in preparation for the finer and subtler realities of higher consciousness. The pineal gland initiates a cascade of inhibitory reactions, permitting visions and dream states to emerge in our conscious awareness. Eventually, the brain synthesizes the "spirit molecules" 5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) and dimethyltryptamine (DMT), facilitating the transcendental experiences of universal love and compassion.
The cannabis plant can heal the nations! It grows vigorously, like a weed, yields very much fruit and nutrients, and penetrates the soil with its roots in a way that it aerates the soil for next seasons crop. It can grow in any environment higher than 32F degress, and thrives in moist tropical environments. It is the perfect food, able to feed hundreds of mouths from a single acre, compare this to how many mouths 67 cows on one acre can feed.
The taste of cannabis, and all its glory:
I see raw cannabis as the ultimate food to live and thrive on. We all know you can eat ramen noodles for a month and still be alive, but will you be ALIVE and thriving? You can eat breads, cooked meats, cooked veggies and various corn starch products, and you will be alive, but will you be living? You can eat all raw foods, raw fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, and achieve a level of health that puts you into a happy mindset all the time, but you still will not be fully alive. Cannabis has every spectrum of nutrient the human body not only needs to live, but THRIVE. As well as every nutrient, it has the cannabinoids, when coupled with your raw bliss state, you achieve a seemingly ecstatic state, nothing like smoking cannabis or eating cooked cannabis edibles.
Take a normal person eating a SAD [Standard American Diet] and he/she eats a 1 gram sample of raw cannabis. That individual would find the taste of the bud, its trichomes (which consist of the cannabinoids, responsible for the high, and the terpenoids, responsible for the smell and flavor) very spicey, peppery and hash like. If you have ever tasted any type of hash you know it is very spicey and borderline unpleasant. When you take a person that has been living on raw foods long enough, and has achieved an alkaline state in the body, the perception of taste of cannabis buds change. This individual will place the same 1 gram sample in his mouth, and taste the most delicious fruit, floral, sweet, citrus, sour flavors in the world. The taste transitions from peppery and unpleasant, to its true taste which is the most amazing taste on Earth.
I have already noticed this, although I am not in a full alkaline state. I notice raw buds are still peppery, but tolerable, but the longer your chew, the more digestive juices in your mouth break down the material in your mouth. The taste, for me, transitioned from peppery, to an almost exotic-like fruit taste. The depth of the fruit taste was deeper than any fruit Ive ever tried, and remains the most intriguing aspect of eating raw cannabis.
What if cannabis was meant to be our number one source for everything: Food, clothes, building materials, everything. What if, through the breeding of various land-race genetics, you can breed for the most delicious flavors on Earth, much like we breed today for the most delicious aromas. Cannabis is meant to be eaten, not smoked. This is my opinion and if you look at it from a scientific standpoint, it makes clear sense.
The Aroma of Cannabis:
Regarding Terpenoids and Cannabinoids, very few people know that the terpenoids are just as responsible for the high as THC is. We all THC is the most prevalent constituent in cannabis, giving the user the euphoria, and sense of well being. But, very few people know why cannabis has a seemingly endless array of aromas. In nature, there are a set of chemicals that give life to our nostrils, these are called terpenes, or terpenoids. Terpenoids are found in just about all plant life. They are found in trees, shrubs, roots, flowers, bark, etc. This is how the aromatherapy industry spawned. People realized they could extract the various terpenoids in nature, purify them, and are therefore easily able to benefit from smelling these terpenoids.
In aromatherapy, my favorite oil is Rose Otto. Rose Otto is the king of all Essential Oils. It has the highest measureable bio-electric frequency of any substance on Earth, measured at 320 Hz. Rose Oil operates the same way as any terpenoid in nature. It operates on your limbic system. Your limbic system is directly connected to your Olfactory sense of smell. The limbic system is the only system in the body that has direct access to one of our senses. The limbic system is responsible for emotions, memories, and dopamine production and release. When you smell a pure Rose Otto (steam distilled Rose Oil), you immediately feel a sensation. This sensation results from the constituents in the rose oil operating on the limbic system. Rose Oil actually operates on the dopamine production and release. When you smell ROse Oil, you actually release more dopamine into the system, giving you a sense of peace and well being. Not only does it help release dopamine, but smelling rose oil helps with dopamine production, making your body more efficient. This is why people tell you to stop and smell the roses.
How does this relate to cannabis? Cannabis is an amazing plant. It somehow gained this amazing ability to REPLICATE every natural terpenoid or constituent in nature. You can have a pine bud, or a fruity bud, or an ammonia bud, or a skunky bud, or a floral bud etc etc. All of these terpenoids operate on the limbic system, as well as replicating natural constituents or hormones in our blood. Everything in our body operates through chemical messages, so it is no wonder that these natural constituents have an effect on the body. If you were to breed a rose smelling strain of marijuana, I can assure you that it will have a very uplifting, happy, warm hearted high. This is because the cannabis strain replicated the constituents in the rose flower, and by ingesting the smoke into your lungs, you are absorbing those constituents. I do not advocate the smoking of cannabis as this detaches you from your spiritual self, and dulls and body and mind, but consuming it raw eliminates these negative aspects. The reason smoking or ingesting cooked cannabis is so different from raw cannabis is simple: enzymes.
I believe that as your body reaches closer to perfect health, your body returns to its natural alkaline state. If you eat cooked foods, you reside in an acidic state, this is where disease thrives. When you transition to raw foods, your body reaches a certain level of equilibrium, and you are pH neutral, or possibly slightly alkaline. The closer you are to an alkaline state, the more efficient your body is at digesting any living plant matter, the same goes for cannabis. So, the more raw cannabis you eat, the closer your body gets to being alkaline, or becomes more alkaline. This makes it easier for your body to absorb the plant matter, as well as, the trichomes that house the cannabinoids and terpenoids. The THC also becomes increasingly more efficient at passing the blood brain barrier, allowing the Delta 11 THC to bind to the CB1 [Cannabinoid 1] receptors in the brain, giving you a blissful, borderline ecstatic spiritual experience.
When we smoke cannabis, or heat it above 115F degrees, we chemical alter the cannabis flowers. This is also true of all fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans etc. Not only do you destroy the valuable enzymes in the flower bract, which definitely assists in the digestion of the raw cannabis, you are chemical altering the THC molecule into a completely different compound.
We all know that when you smoke cannabis, you develop a tolerance as the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain and body are deactivated. The reason I now believe we develop a tolerance to smoked cannabis, or cooked cannabis edibles, is we lack the certain enzymes that help deactivate THC on itself. In essence, when you smoke cannabis, the THC binds to the cannabinoid receptors, and over time, since the body lacks the proper enzyme to deactivate the THC molecule, the cannabinoid receptor itself goes inactive. This means you have to smoke more to achieve the same effect, and the more you smoke, the more receptors in the brain and body become deactive. Since you are essentially deactivating our bodies bliss receptors, you will feel less blissful over a long period of time. We like to think cannabis doesnt cause withdrawal symptoms, but long term use of smoking cannabis will result in fewer active Cannabinoid receptors, and thus, our natural bliss chemical Anandamide, is less effective.
When you eat raw cannabis, and your body resides in an alkaline state, your body is very efficient at absorbing the raw cannabis. You are consuming the necessary enzymes that help deactivate the THC molecule, instead of our body deactivating the CB1 CB2 receptors. You essentially never develop a tolerance to raw cannabis.
When you consume raw cannabis in its natural state, you are consuming the enzymes in tact. Here is a quote regarding any and all neurotransmitters in the body:
"The keys [neurotransmitter, or chemical message] must be removed again from the lock somehow, or the nerve cell will be permanently prevented from firing [deactivation of the receptor on the cell wall]. Certain enzymes are produced that remove (by degrading and destroying) the keys after a certain amount of time, so that the nerve cell can go back to work."
So in essence, you are consuming the most whole-some food on Earth. This results in perfect health, but it is also coupled the cannabinoids. Since you are consuming the cannabis raw, and it still contains the valuable enzymes that assist in digestion and deactivating the THC molecule, you never hinder any receptors in your brain or body. You simply get the bliss feeling every time you consume cannabis raw, and you are feeding your mind, body and spirit. There is really no other food on Earth that allows you to get more connected to your spirit than raw cannabis!
