About Us

Gaining information and scientific backed research data necessary to understand how Cannabinoid Medicine is or can be utilized both now and in the future is essential to us all. Education includes the spreading of knowledge obtained in both current and past research as well as patient accounts of their own success. News and information on changes in cannabinoid therapies is the number one goal as we all learn more about the efficacy of cannabinoid medicine. The cannabis and hemp industries are moving forward extremely quickly - patient, healthcare, and even industry education has ended up secondary as the production and distribution of desperately needed cannabinoid medicines have taken precedent, leaving the necessity to educate consumers and others on how the cannabinoids work in our bodies as well as the pros and cons of it's use. From dosages to strain types, consumers are confused. The research centers main goal is Consumer Affairs - safety and education. By gaining more knowledge on this subject both patients and healthcare professionals are able to integrate a consumers use of cannabis into any medical treatment protocol. As well, industry professionals and more gain insight into how cannabis is utilized as a valuable medicine as well as a much needed supplement to our diets.

 

Cannabis and Healing

Consumers across the globe have found the healing properties within the vast number of constituents found in the various cannabis cultivars. It's our mission to spread as much information as possible in regards to how the plant and it's extracts work by taking scientific studies and explaining them in ways consumers and even professionals will understand with ease. 

Our Committment

We're committed to providing the most updated studies as well as highlighting on many studies of the past along with our own interpretation of them. Keep in mind that in the emerging cannabinoid medicine industries which include research, it's easy to find different interpretations of the same studies. Clinical trials are the concentration as they're much more concrete in gaining knowledge on how humans respond to cannabinoid medicine. Due to laws that have prohibited Cannabis, this area of research is extremely limited in nature.

Cannabinoid Medicine is a natural alternative for consumers

Cancer and Cannabinoids

The active component of the cannabis plant, cannabinoids, have shown to inhibit tumor growth and kill cancer cells in lab testings. We're excited to see how newer studies prove this at a much greater level than those of the past. Clinical trials have already been done with success and others are underway on cancer treatments that utilize the extracts of various cannabis cultivars due to the extremely high potentials in the treatment of cancer and to suppress the side effects of other treatments. 

 

Seizures, Does It Stop Them?

Medical cannabis contains antispasmodic qualities which relax muscles and have proven to be an effective treatment in the control of various health issues that cause seizures. Products and oils that are rich in cannabidol (CBD), are the preferred method for treatment for many within the clinical trials and beyond. Others find that cannabinoids such as THC and CBN offer great relief from the same issues. Many times it's the individual consumer who will know the most about what cannabinoid works the best for them

 

Cannabinoids and Chronic Pain

Consumers that suffer from chronic pain caused by diabetes, cancer, MS, Injuries, Sports and Athletics, and other diseases or health and wellness issues have been turning to medical cannabis as a way to treat their pain, and that's far from new. It's well documented that thousands of years ago cannabis was a viable analgesic in Chinese and other medicines. Even in the United States, cannabis extracts were a leading pain medicine before the prohibition of the plant.  Many have turned away from the use of addictive pharmaceutical medications - including the founder of the Research Center - Mike Robinson!

Genevieve's Carousel Challenge

The Challenge was created based on my daughters response to the efficacy of Cannabinoid Medicine provided by a compassion program I once ran that provided free oils.
