Sustainability and Cannabis


How much of what we accept as being possible or viable in developing solutions for the challenges we face as a global community is based on half-truths and undone science?

Tanami Sunrise 27.4.15Could it be, that some companies simply prefer that no solution be found whilst good profits are being made from us in medicine, energy and nutrition? How long do we sit around and just accept that our leaders know what they are talking about without questioning their motivation for such ignorance? CHEN RS 1990, Global agriculture, environment, and hunger: Past, present, and future links appears to be the bible of Agenda 2030 advocates, and it needs to b
e re-written.

For Biomass energy to be discounted as a sustainable option in the race against environmental toxicity due to ‘over-population’ is an example of ‘undone science’. It does not consider using Cannabis as fuel or Cannabis for anything for that matter. Their bible, like most bibles, has been corrupted by the influence of people who stand to gain from it.

Cannabis is a plant that is well known for the ability to improve soil condition and assist in restoring biodiversity; a diverse range of organisms in the environment is essential in maintaining our soil resources. When used in rotation with grains and legumes, (amongst other agricultural staples), it has been shown to improve yields and lower the need for inputs such as Nitrogen and Phosphorus.

Both Nitrogen and Phosphorous have been abused as agricultural inputs for profit, and are now the primary reason for algal blooms destroying our waterways, and are contributing to the disruption of our rainfall cycles. Not to mention, the devastating effect this is having on aquatic life and the Earth’s atmosphere…

Cannabis, or Hemp as it is commonly known in its non-drug form, grows to maturity in 12-16 weeks and produces more than 4 times the pulp of trees per hectare in less than 5% of the time it takes for trees to mature. The seeds are a superfood with a diverse protein or amino acid profile and omega 3, 6 & 9 in perfect ratios for bioavailability in mammals. Chen also fails to mention how Cannabis is better than fish for these nutrients and a worthy solution to declining global fish stocks.

Cells in most mammal tissue have receptors or ‘keyholes’ that match hundreds of beneficial compounds, or ‘keys’ found in Cannabis. Recent findings in medicine show that Cannabis, when used whole and unprocessed, has the ability to promote homeostasis, or balance in the body, through efficient management of available resources.

Everything from Inflammation (including weight management) to skin cancer, depression, epilepsy and much, much more are now being treated (often illegally) with Cannabis by many people with incredible success.

Isn’t that what this whole ‘Sustainability’ song is all about?

I wish you, and us all, well on rediscovering real health and well-being. Hope is turning off our TV’s and using common sense. Sustainability doesn’t have to mean cramming into steel and concrete jungles, eating GMO and artificial everything, destroying the immune system through toxic chemicals and getting a radio frequency RFID tracking chip to administer medications.

Sustainability and it’s bible are ‘community driven’. The community once driven by the ‘talking heads’ is awakening and re-writing the words of Chen in a way that provides hope.

Education and discussion are more important now than ever before in our history. There’s a war on for our minds. Cannabis is not for everyone but the choice absolutely should be.
