can we PLEASE spread this around tumblr!? the medical field is so fucked up!

Wow finally an actual post on this. I know of 2 people who used this treatment and they both overcame their illness.

cannabis leaves are jam packed full of amazing vitamins, if you know of anybody who grows, ask them for the leaves and juice them!

This is a lie. If anyone believes this I seriously doubt they have even an average IQ.

Any real medical studies that prove this?

>stoners still believe that weed is a cancer cure
They are unwilling to accept that it’s not some magical drug

Well, because if you actually look at the science of it.  Even that backed by the US federal government.

It can inhibit growth of different tumors.

Here’s another on the anticancer and analgesic benefits of it.

Now let’s head over to some scholarly sources.  Here’s two on it’s effects on brain cancer.

And here are two on it and lung cancer.

One showing how cannabinoids fight cancer in general?

I had to do a paper when I was first in college a decade ago on  marijuana.  When I had done it the only legitimized scientific studies on cannabis’s effect on cancer were skin cancers.  In the past decade a ton of research has been done, all showing it is amazing for cancer.  From what source, scholarly, have you ever seen that says marijuana has no positive effects on cancer?

"In the end, I wanted to wake up sea foam.
I didn’t want these legs anymore that carry me
uselessly from house to house, searching for lost love.
I wore dresses that covered up the pale lengths,
in sea greens and azure blues, wove seashells into hair
and sang on a rock. None of it did any good.

Once, I would have died for you. I changed, I did,
and all just for one kiss, one touch, should it have burned
so much? I miss cool scales, the constant wet embrace,
the skittering tips of tsunami. While you
were out catching fish, with your tangled nets,
I was watching you, wishing for a different body, one to
entangle you.

It never did me any good. So I will wait for the ocean’s promise:
that once again I will end up on this beach, disintegrate,
spatter away into the essences of salt, sand, earth.
A waste of skin and scale, but at least once again
I will be part of the dance, the maternal water
carrying me home."
Jeannine Hall Gailey, "The Little Mermaid Has No Regrets," from She Returns to the Floating World (via elucipher)

#poetry 

i’m at a weird point in my writing. i finished the second draft of my completed manuscript, but i’m not really sure what to do with it now. i mean, obviously more revisions are needed. but i thought i would be more excited about the state that its in now. i made all these really great changes that i thought made it a better story, but i’m wondering if its all a futile effort. maybe it was a terrible idea to begin with.

and i’m having a hard time motivating myself to work on my other manuscripts. and nanowrimo is coming up, but i don’t think i’m doing it this year because i’m going to be on vacation at the beginning of the month, and i just don’t think it works that well for me. i contemplated working on something that was  not a novel, maybe a couple short stories, or even a comic book, but i’m not sure.

but i got a little annoyed with this limbo point i’m in, and decided rather impulsively to submit one of my stories to strange horizons. i’m a little concerned that i’m aiming to high, but whatever, why the hell not. i don’t have any really serious expectations about it, i guess i just got an urge to put myself out there, instead of sitting on my work. it’ll be a long time before i have a full length novel that’s suitable for human eyes, but if i can manage it with a short story i might as well try.

I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

Cacao is gross, but the grosser the better for you, tbh. 90-95% is what I try to find. If you can blend it into a protein shake, more power to you.
Also, fish oil helps polish off the creaky parts. And they make non-burping supplements so you don’t go around emitting fish breath all day. Just, for the love of god, keep them at room temperature.

Omg, I tried fish oil a while back as my doctor recommended it as a digestive cleanse. It did pretty much the opposite of cleansing. Well, I hear that it can block you up for a little while before it actually starts working properly, but I could not get past that first part, it was straight up painful.

Bananas and spinach and/or cacao. HUGE for muscle function and tendon, & ligament strength. Potassium and magnesium are bread and butter, especially for exercises that require maintaining certain positions like you’re doing.
Hope I’m not being presumptuous in offering that little tid bit. I just went through many deep aches and pains w/ my stuff, and those helped a LOT. :-)

No, I totally appreciate it. I do try to eat bananas a lot. I hate spinach, but cacao I can definitely do, I was actually thinking of incorporating protein shakes into my routine anyway. Honestly, I could use all the help I can get, I’ve always been very healthy naturally so I don’t really know how to take care of myself when I need it.
