Researchers feel it is important to compare the CBD-rich cannabis to commercial painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. They found that both the whole, plant-based CBD as well as the synthetic exhibited greater anti-inflammatory potency than aspirin. In their conclusion, they stated,

“A lot of research has been made to isolate and characterize isolated single constituents of traditional herbal medicine to find their rationale for therapeutic uses. However, our data together with those of others provide legitimization to introduce a new generation of phytopharmaceuticals to treat diseases that have hitherto been treated using synthetic drugs alone. The therapeutic synergy observed with plant extracts results in the requirements for a lower amount of active components, with consequent reduced adverse effects.”

These researchers are telling us that the synergistic effects of whole plants initiate a myriad of beneficial metabolic pathways scientists are still trying to figure out. Single, isolated, pure synthetic molecules just do not compare in power to these natural solutions. And the toxicity associated with synthetic molecules, which are not fully recognized by the body, continues to be a thorn in the side of the pharmaceutical industry.

Powerful corporate interests have kept natural, plant-based cannabis products off the market. But they are now getting on the bandwagon for legalization of this plant. George Soros is leading the charge. He is a major shareholder in Monsanto. Monsanto is the world’s largest seed company and producer of genetically modified seeds. Monsanto created things like Agent Orange used to defoliate trees during the Vietnam War. Agent Orange has caused military veterans irreparable health problems.

Monsanto is the company who developed Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) which was banned from agricultural use in the U.S. in 1972, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) which were banned as a carcinogen in the U.S. in 1979, dioxin-based pesticides, aspartame, and recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) which is a genetically engineered growth hormone to increase a cow’s milk production. They developed RoundUp™ herbicides with glyphosate which was declared a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization in 2015.

They also created RoundUp Ready™ crops which are seeds genetically engineered to withstand large applications of glyphosate. They know harmful chemicals. This is also the company the FDA and USDA trust to bring the public GMO food without any third-party animal or human testing because they believe the company’s marketing literature that says GMOs are substantially equivalent to natural food. I find it difficult to believe there are any good motives in a group of people with this kind of track record.

Our non-profit organization has taken the better part of a year to vet companies for a CBD oil that is safe. Much like vetting vitamins and minerals there is a lot of marketing hype and even blatant marketing deception with this product. Companies are bringing to market what meets the demand but that doesn’t mean it’s safe. It can be at the very least just throwing money away or at the very most may be harmful in the long run. We will have our opinion listed for you soon. If you’d like that list, you may go to and request it. That will ensure you get on the weekly email which brings the options to your inbox and then you can trust what you’re shopping for has been through our vetting process and is safe and efficacious.
