Plant poppies....(Papaver Somniferum) There are books on this subject.
Haven't been online much since posting that weed wars was going to be on. I was sorely disappointed and think it does nothing to give medical marijuana any good outlook. Just me perhaps.
Funny you mention Papaver Somniferum Chaunska. I ordered some Lemon Balm seeds online and got these as a freebie. had to look it up to see what they were. Now I have probably three dozen different herb seeds to plant in the Spring and poppie seeds lol. Found out alot of info on poppy seeds in my research too. Even the kinds you can buy in the store in the spice section. People get them and make tea and get messed up. That stuff is way addictive! One couple has created a website warning people of poppy seed tea their son got hooked on and died from overdose. Poppy seeds from the supermarket.

Not sure if this fits here but recent research on making extractions has led me to learning about steam distillation of essential oils and hydrosols. Don't know why I never researched this before or even really never even knew about it given my distilling activities in the past. So I have had a bunch of water distiller parts sitting around waiting for whatever. Might as well put them to use.
Will have pics later but currently I'm modifying my stainless steel keg boiler so that it will hold a basket of whatever I want to extract from, adding a five gallon extension to the top plus another two gallon stainless bowl so I will have a seven gallon material capacity. Got my eye open for a 55 gallon stainless drum for future possibilities! Probably start out with something simple and readily accessible like red cedar wood chips and the juniper tree leaf parts and maybe some pine needles/cones. Also ordered a bunch of lemon balm (Melissa) seeds to plant next year.
I'm finding this topic fascinating. Never dreamed of all the possibilities. Input is appreciated, such as if anyone knows of any one or two great resources to learn from regarding all the basic and most popular natural items where essentials are distilled from and perhaps some would like to tell what their favorites are and how they use them. Thanks!

Charlie, PS do you have any reference links about cannibis being infused into olive oil or any of the other uses you had mentioned?

There's one forum I found that has alot of threads about infusing the ingredients but they use alot of foul language so I'm not sure about posting the link.
Extracting essential oils is not hard but can be dangerous if one doesn't know what they're doing. The common method to extract cannabis oil involves a solvent like isopropyl alcohol which is either distilled off or cooked off in the open air. Lots of people have been burned trying stupid stuff and there's lots of YouTube backyard chemists who show lots of dumb ways to do it. I have past knowledge of making ethanol with a copper still and could do it easily and safely but that's a whole nother story.
The actives in cannabis are alcohol, fatty or oil soluble. A common method, also on YouTube is simply cooking the buds in olive oil and then squeezing/filtering out the oil from the plant material.
YouTube search keywords: Cannabis Oil, Canna Oil, Hash Oil, Iso Oil, BHO Oil. Alot of these are just people making oil to smoke and get stoned but some are medicinal like the olive oil infusions.

This fella I found today has quite alot of info on his site...http://freeanointing.org/cannabis_in_the_holy_oil.htm
Pretty much all of the other info I've seen in various forums can be found on that site as well. I have an old preacher buddy out in California who knows quite alot about the old Hebrew and how to find out such things and have asked him to find out what he can so I'm waiting on that as well. Specifically if Jesus was anointed with this oil and if He anointed the disciples with it and if He instructed them to go out, lay hands on and anoint sick people with this same oil.
The problem I sort of have is God going on to tell Moses this oil was specifically for items in the tabernacle & Aaron and his sons who took up the Levitical priesthood. Specific instructions to not make this oil for just anybody. But...I'm not sure about the priesthood of Christ and Him passing it on to the church which is supposed to be a priesthood of itself and so perhaps this oil is for everyone who is in Jesus name? I really don't know...meaning that I see quite alot of people making it but are they supposed to be making it???

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's archaeology institute downplays theories that the ancient Mayas predicted some sort of apocalypse would occur in 2012, but on Thursday it acknowledged that a second reference to the date exists on a carved fragment found at a southern Mexico ruin site.
Most experts had cited only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.
But the National Institute of Anthropology and History said in a statement that there is in fact another apparent reference to the date at the nearby Comalcalco ruin. The inscription is on the carved or molded face of a brick. Comalcalco is unusual among Mayan temples in that it was constructed of bricks.
Arturo Mendez, a spokesman for the institute, said the fragment of inscription had been discovered years ago and has been subject to thorough study. It is not on display and is being kept in storage at the institute.
The "Comalcalco Brick," as the second fragment is known, has been discussed by experts in some online forums. Many still doubt that it is a definite reference to Dec. 21, 2012 or Dec. 23, 2012, the dates cited by proponents of the theory as the possible end of the world.
"Some have proposed it as another reference to 2012, but I remain rather unconvinced," David Stuart, a specialist in Mayan epigraphy at the University of Texas at Austin, said in a message to The Associated Press.
Stuart said the date inscribed on the brick "'is a Calendar Round,' a combination of a day and month position that will repeat every 52 years."
The brick date does coincide with the end of the 13th Baktun; Baktuns were roughly 394-year periods and 13 was a significant, sacred number for the Mayas. The Mayan Long Count calendar begins in 3114 B.C., and the 13th Baktun ends around Dec. 21, 2012.
But the date on the brick could also correspond to similar dates in the past, Stuart said.
"There's no reason it couldn't be also a date in ancient times, describing some important historical event in the Classic period. In fact, the third glyph on the brick seems to read as the verb huli, "he/she/it arrives."
"There's no future tense marking (unlike the Tortuguero phrase), which in my mind points more to the Comalcalco date being more historical that prophetic," Stuart wrote.
Both inscriptions — the Tortuguero tablet and the Comalcalco brick — were probably carved about 1,300 years ago and both are cryptic in some ways.
The Tortuguero inscription describes something that is supposed to occur in 2012 involving Bolon Yokte, a mysterious Mayan god associated with both war and creation.
However, erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible, though some read the last eroded glyphs as perhaps saying, "He will descend from the sky."
The Comalcalco brick is also odd in that the molded or inscribed faces of the bricks were probably laid facing inward or covered with stucco, suggesting they were not meant to be seen.
The Institute of Anthropology and History has long said rumors of a world-ending or world-changing event in late December 2012 are a Westernized misinterpretation of Mayan calendars.
The institute repeated Thursday that "western messianic thought has twisted the cosmovision of ancient civilizations like the Maya."
The institute's experts say the Mayas saw time as a series of cycles that began and ended with regularity, but with nothing apocalyptic at the end of a given cycle.
Given the strength of Internet rumors about impending disaster in 2012, the institute is organizing a special round table of 60 Mayan experts next week at the archaeological site of Palenque, in southern Mexico, to "dispel some of the doubts about the end of one era and the beginning of another, in the Mayan Long Count calendar."

I never dreamed when making the title for this thread, just how deep the rabbit hole would actually take me. Some folks are not going to be able to receive this at all I'm sure but one can start here...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_(etymology
You all are great at doing research and reaching sound conclusions. I like to think I am also but where this is leading me rips through the very fabric of accepted history and religion as we know it, but it makes perfect sense given the agenda of TPTB.
Condensed version of what I've found and believe anyone will reach the same conclusion if they care to dig. In the recipe for the Holy Anointing Oil given to Moses by God, our Bible lists one of the ingredients as "Calamus". The calamus from that part of the world is highly toxic in the amount given for the recipe and is metabolized in the body into the drug we all know as Extacy. Why would God instruct Moses to make a toxic anointing oil for the priests? It just does not make any sense. It makes more sense the word was mistranslated and what you will find is that "Kaneh-Bosem" (Cannabis in English) is what should be in the Bible where Calamus is written.
This makes alot of sense to me. TPTB have not only deceived the current medical patients but beginning all the way back to the formation of what has become the modern day church by seeing to it that part of what God required as a sacrement for the priesthood that was supposed to be administered throughout all generations was omitted.
If cannabis was supposed to be in the oil and has been left out, it's no wonder the church is in the shape it has come to be in, in my view utterly powerless and full of evil and misconceptions, strife, jealousy, envy, hate. There is little if any evidence of the real power of God being active among the church. I've seen so many false prophets and false healers come and go with hoards of disappointed people in their wake it makes me sick.
Off my soap box now. I happened to look up the other ingredients listed and aside from cannabis which has been shown to have medicinal properties, so do the rest. It's no wonder to me that God would add cannabis to the recipe. Depending on how one weighs a sheckel, there was 6-9 pounds of cannabis infused into 1-1.5 gallons of olive oil. Along with the other ingredients that would make some potent medicinal oil for certain.
The church is not going to accept this. I can already see the angered faces of some people I know if I were to openly start sharing this info on social media. They would tar and feather me lol. So there it is, the bottom of the rabbit hole. Care to get dirty?

Far as I know. I guess it was one of the team on their facebook who told me to invite 10 people over to watch on my pc and each could pay $0.50...that was then a sustainable economy.

Lots of people on their facebook page calling for free release, including myself. It's very hard to justify a fee considering the message and confuses people. I don't know if they have good motives or not. For one thing, it's clear or would seem to be clear the people who made the movie are not in a bad financial situation. Charging a fee and then shutting down free access citing copyright infringement is like fresh poop on the dry pie and I think will probably end up killing the entire thing. If their motive is not pure to start with and making money from capitalizing on current uncertainty issues is the hidden agenda then they may as well line up with the same folks they point at in the movie.

Just watched on vimeo http://vimeo.com/32121190
Yes I agree a compilation we all mostly know. Good to have to share & show. My aha moment came when they started talking about doing all this peacefully lol. I am wanting for the people who have brought all this current situation about to suffer but that doesn't accomplish anything. Violence only adds to the problem.
I liked especially, the move to further ET disclosure. I believe it's going to take drastic and open ET intervention to bring about change. Or a big and sudden natural disaster which takes out TPTB without them having time to save themselves. Would be nice if it were a "selective" disaster, such as where all the good folks emerge from, look around and all the badness was wiped out. Dreaming is ok.

I don't know if anybody actually took the time to watch the "Run From The Cure" video so here's a condensed version. Rick Simpson from Nova Scotia, Canada found relief from his head injury by smoking a bit of cannabis but his doctor advised against it. So Rick asked him if he were to remove the essential oils from the plant and ingest it, would that be a better way and his doctor affirmed it would, so he did devise a way to extract and concentrate the cannabinoids.
Later on he successfully treated some skin cancers with the oil and further on to giving the oil to terminally ill cancer patients among other diseases and they became well. So he and some of the cured people tried to bring this info to their government attention and they were shut down and Rick was tried as a criminal though he never sold a bit of the oil.
He explains how when taken properly over a period of time, the oil will cure one without one ever getting "high". This is not about getting high to me. Had it been I would have just been sneaky and done it and never said a word to anyone.
The cannabinoids simply perform what our bodies would do naturally if we weren't already compromised and in a weakened state. By attaching to receptors in our bodies they allow our cells to perform the task of "self destruction" in the case of cancer cells or simple pain block for other ailments while protecting healthy cells.
That's the easiest way I can explain it from the material I've read. There is alot more to learn. Some plant breeders are now even developing types higher in certain other cannabinoids than THC so they perform tasks without the associated high common to street cannabis.
I have found a "collective" as they call it out in California where caregivers and patients all voluntarily work and provide all the 250 or so members with free medication and nobody makes any money. This to me is in the spirit of true compassion, giving, which may be as important a part of Rick Simpson's Cancer Cure Hemp Oil as the quality of plant material he says is critical in the making of the oil. I'm not seeing alot of miraculous cancer cures being publicised by people from ingesting legal dispensary "oil" as one would think there ought to be so I'm leaning toward the notion that the "healing spirits" are not so much involved where there is greed.
If I'm ever legally able I will make the oil and give it away, same as Rick Simpson. I only want to help people and long for the day I see a critically ill person healed, be it concentrated cannabis oil extract or potato peels! If it works we ought to have the right and freedom to grow it and use it to heal ourselves freely.

I would like to know what chemical properties in cannabis that make the addiction happen. As in alcohol with people that are allergic to it. The addiction comes when the alcohol breaks down to sugar. Some peoples systems turn that sugar into a form of formaldehyde & go crazy.
Far as I know the only substantial claim to cannabis addiction is that of pshycological "want" and not a physical dependence as is associated with alcohol or other substances which create withdrawal symptoms when suddenly taken away. The best explanation I've heard relating to this is that cannabis "may" create a limited physical dependence in 9% of heavy users but since THC and other chemicals remain in the body and dissipate over an extended period of time it poses no physical threat to those who may suddenly stop using it.
According to old info which is news to me, TPTB have known about cannabis' anti-tumor properties since 1974...http://www.projectcensored.org/top-stories/articles/22-us-government-repressed-marijuana-tumor-research/
This makes me think..."why, what purpose and justification can there be for declaring a war on drugs, war on terror, war on anything in the name of "protecting" America when our own government is guilty of suppressing research and a natural cure for many conditions, resulting in the deaths of countless Americans right here on our own soil"?
This is not "The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave". It's more like the land of the suppressed and home of the cowardly with just a few brave people who aren't afraid to stand for what they believe in. At least that's what I see in my community. I guess everybody is totally brainwashed and controlled by the evil frequencies being sent out. Forget the possibility of a zombie invasion, we're already living in it.

Please nobody take anything I may write as a personal attack. I'm just very angry finding out some of these facts the last few weeks and knowing something could have perhaps been done when my brother died of a brain tumor in 1990. Supposedly, according to many sources, it has been known by TPTB to have anti-tumor properties in concentrated form for many years prior to that.
Honestly, I have questioned the validity of the Rick Simpson claims and others on YouTube saying concentrated cannabis oil cured their cancer or whatever ailment but found there are substantial clinical studies that now verify its use for such with success. I rightly question everything and look at all sides. The evidence is unquestionable.
Many things are addictive. I think what we do with them boils down to education and personal choices. Currently I'm addicted to nicotine by way of fine cut tobacco snuff in a plastic can. It sucks but I am. I'm also addicted to Subway Steak & Cheese sandwiches, my wife and this website among others lol. There are many things in my medicine cabinet which are known to be addictive yet the bottles have long expired and I probably need to have them disposed of. Just because something is addictive and I have access to it does not mean I'm going to get addicted eh!
I think cannabis could be addictive as anything. Earlier in my life I used it not for medicinal purposes for about 15 years. Honestly can say I was not addicted but I sure did like it alot. When I quit there was no physical withdrawal such as with alcohol or some prescribed drugs I have had hell with in past years.
Spiritually speaking, I personally don't link cannabis use with being anything near unspiritual, nor do I believe it leads one to be unspiritual. The last 15 years after I quit cannabis and spent in churches, I met more mean, nasty and unspiritual people than ever before in my entire life. I think they could have benefited alot by having some cannabis and at least smiled for once in their life lol.

I believe that medical marijuana is probably natures most powerful healer, which is why it had to be demonized. Here is a link to a video that I found quite interesting, it's from our Canadian friends, where they are now permitted to have 5 plants per household. The video is a full length movie, and well worth the time it takes to watch it.
It is a good pain killer and it has it's uses in that area of Medicine....but do not be deceived, it has very little healing power. It is a medicine, however. Nutritionally, the seeds are good food value and good for the gut when cooked, but that is the extent of it's healing abilities. Seeds do not contain the pain killing drug. In the old days, we hardly ever used it and if we did, we did so sparingly on people who had pain from an injury...it was chewed, not smoked. The reason that we didn't use it much is that it is one the plants that has addictive powers. Wisdom of Medicine Men could see this. Medicine Men realized their people couldn't fight those addictions well. Anything, which is addictive will take away your human power...being the power of choice. Of course, doctors these days do not regard addictive properties in the same way we did. There are thousands of other plants that actually do heal the body that are much better choices in the area of herbal medicine; they are highly regarded. The fact that pot is regarded these days as anything more than a painkiller, indicates it's addictive properties. I am fine with a person's personal choice to use whatever drug they want too....as long as it doesn't affect me...I also believe that if you get yourself into a ditch, then you also get yourself out. Politically, as a libertarian, I believe that this illegal drug thing has more to do with the government and control than anything....but, as a Medicine Woman, I am NOT going to tell people that pot, or any other mind altering drug, is a good thing to use without supervision and for any length of time....that would be lying.
With all due respect, I believe you are wrong. There are solid medical research facts which prove canabinoids kill cancer cells while supporting healthy cells. Pretty powerful if you ask me. You will see much more of this surface as to the facts. So much to learn still yet.
Destiny comes to those who listen, and fate finds the rest.
So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!
