I was searching the www for material to back up

Medical Marijuana prohibition is a crime against humanity and a violation of the religious precept – heal the sick.

and came across this.

Changes in endocannabinoid levels and/or CB2 receptor expressions have been reported in almost all diseases affecting humans,[34] ranging from cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, liver, kidney, neurodegenerative, psychiatric, bone, skin, autoimmune, lung disorders to pain and cancer. The prevalence of this trend suggests that modulating CB2 receptor activity by either selective CB2 receptor agonists or inverse agonists/antagonists depending on the disease and its progression holds unique therapeutic potential for these pathologies [34]

A crime against humanity might be too mild.

I spend some time every day at The Weed Blog and usually pass by their reviews of different strains of pot. I thought their differentiating the different stains by the diseases they were good for was nuts. Pot is pot. After reading the above article in its entirety I have changed my mind. Adjusting the cannabinoid ratios to fit the disease fits in well with what we know about the CB1 system and CB2 system in the body.

I have a few 5 or 6 minute videos up on the subject: CBD Science – HPLC Analysis which explains how the various cannabinoids work for those who need to rebalance them in their bodies. It discusses how different marijuana strains work to deal with different imbalances.
