Most are familiar with two species of cannabis, sativa and indica, however, there is a third, often overlooked species of this healing plant, known as cannabis ruderalis.


Native to Russia and Eastern Europe, ruderalis is different in a number of ways, most notably in that it has very low THC content, and is therefore not psychoactive, making it less sought after for those seeking to elevate their consciousness.

A true weed, ruderalis grows in abundance in the wild, often in disturbed soils on roadsides and on farmland, thriving near human populations.


The name itself, ruderalis, stems from a Latin word, rūdera, meaning rubbish, or debris, offering insight into its characteristics.

The plant itself is short and stocky, quite smaller than indica or sativa, typically only growing to a height of 1 and 2.5 feet tall, and has a unique leaf, noticeably different from the two other popular species of cannabis.


So, what is this species of cannabis used for?


Ruderalis may have very beneficial uses when bred as a strain of industrial hemp, making it useful as an industrial crop.

There are many different varieties of commercial hemp, but too few of these strains are based on wild ruderalis.


FIN-314, or Finola, is an auto flowering hemp strain created in 1995 for commercial crop growing in Finland. Its THC concentration is limited to a level acceptable to the government.


Although these plants contain very little THC, they are rich in CBD and have medicinal uses that correspond to the CBD cannabinoid.


Russian ruderalis has also been successfully transformed into industrial hemp strains grown for fibre, seed and oil.


Regarding CBD, ruderalis is rich in this active cannabinoid which is now being widely recognized for its non-psychoactive medical properties which are highly beneficial in reducing inflammation, managing pain, and are believed to very potent anti-cancer agents.





Ruderalis is commonly used by cannabis breeders to enhance the properties of sativa and indica strains, most notably because ruderalis is auto-flowering, meaning that it's flowering cycle is not triggered by the photoperiod like indica and sativa.


It typically begins to flower between 21 and 30 days after the seed has been planted, and popular strains commonly referred to as 'auto-flowering' strains are typically crossbred with ruderalis.

Sativa/ruderalis crosses are also quite popular.


Sativas tend to be too tall to grow well indoors, so adding a little ruderalis heritage to the mix creates plants that are far more manageable.




Many believe ruderalis to be a descendant of indica genetics that adjusted to the harsh climates and the shorter growing seasons of the northern regions where it originates.


Cannabis ruderalis is native to areas in Asia, Central/Eastern Europe, and specifically Russia, where botanists used the term "ruderalis" to classify the breeds of hemp plant that had escaped from human and cultivation, adapting to the extreme environments found in these climates.


While some debate continues as to whether or not ruderalis is a subspecies rather than a stand alone species of cannabis, the plant is quite unique, and a true weed.










Cannabidiol (CBD)

With a slew of impressive medical benefits,

CBD (cannabidiol), the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis,

holds massive potential as an extraordinary healer.

It appears there is little it cannot heal …


The truth about Cannabidiol (CBD) and the cannabis plant in general can no longer be suppressed - and the exciting thing is that we are just at the beginning.


We are literally just at the start on the long road of cannabis knowledge, which will take us to a deeper understanding of this astonishing plant, its varied uses and its manifold medical benefits.


We still don't even know how many cannabinoids (natural chemical compounds endemic to the cannabis plant) it contains - over the years the number has been revised in various places from 66 to 85 to 113+.


We certainly don't know the full range of effects of these cannabinoids, nor do we understand the synergistic way they work together, which is of the utmost importance.


However, we do know enough to say that one of the foremost cannabinoids is cannabidiol or CBD, and we do know that it has incredible potential for healing a wide range of diseases, including,

diabetes, insomnia, anxiety, depression, migraines, asthma, scar tissue, Crohn's, epilepsy, seizures, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and cancer.

Ironically, the whole propaganda campaign of "reefer madness" that tried to demonize marijuana in the 1930s-1950s insinuated that pot caused schizophrenia, and while THC can have some mildly negative psychoactive effects when smoked, it may turn out that CBD-rich cannabis oil cures schizophrenia, not causes it.


This demonization campaign, as usual, was led by the Rockefellers and other rich NWO families who were scared that cannabis would destroy their monopolies, such as the Western medical drug industry.

Clearly, the tides of cannabis perception are turning, and many people have overcome the stigma to explore the vast nutritional and medicinal benefits of cannabis.


This article focuses on the healing potential of the preeminent cannabinoid, CBD.




Guess Where Else Cannabinoids are Found?

Before we break down the phenomenal effects of CBD, here is a mind-blowing fact. Cannabinoids aren't just found in the cannabis plant.


They're also found somewhere closer to home: you!


That's right:

the human body itself has an entire system which utilizes cannabinoids.

It is known as the endocannabinoid system ("endo" is from a Greek word meaning "within").


In this way, we can distinguish among endocannabinoids (those produced by the human body), phytocannabinoids (those produced by the cannabis plant) and synthetic cannabinoids (the approximately 17 synthetic versions produced by the pharmaceutical cartel).


Synthetic cannabinoids, by the way, are Big Pharma's way of trying to pirate and cash in on Nature by modifying or isolating a natural chemical or compound, making it slightly different to its natural state, getting a patent, then marketing it as a drug with a governmentally enforced monopoly.


Some synthetic cannabinoids (such as K2, spice, marinol, etc.) have been taken off the market due to their dangerous nature, but after all, they are part of the Big Pharma business plan, and the greater New World Order synthetic agenda, so what do you expect?


Cannabidiol or CBD

is the main non-psychoactive constituent

of the cannabis plant.





The Endocannabinoid System


The cannabinoid receptors (CB1, CB2, etc.), endocannabinoids and the related enzymes all make up the endocannabinoid system - and it's not just some insignificant little system in the body.


Evidence shows it to be essential in most if not all physiological systems, responsible for numerous processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory and immunity (yes, the endocannabinoid system influences the immune system too).


The Italian researcher, Vincenzo Di Marzo, summed it up well in his 1998 study 'Endocannabinoids - Endogenous cannabinoid receptor ligands with neuromodulatory action':

"'Relax, eat, sleep, forget and protect' might be some of the messages that are produced by the actions of endocannabinoids, alone or in combination with other mediators …"


The chemical formula

for cannabidiol or CBD.





How CBD Works


CBD is a miracle compound.


Unlike THC, it does not bind to the body's cannabinoid receptors (CB1 or CB2), so it is not psychoactive and does not produce the high effect. Cannabidiol works through a number of complex mechanisms.


Preclinical studies indicate that cannabidiol has the following list of extensive healing properties.


The first 5 items on the list below all pertain to cannabidiol's capacity as an anti-carcinogenic agent:


  • Anti-Proliferative: 

    CBD stops cancer cells proliferating or reproducing. Many of its effects listed below stem from its ability to activate PPAR receptors. 


    As the article How CBD Works states,

"CBD also exerts an anti-cancer effect by activating PPARs (peroxisome proliferator activated receptors) that are situated on the surface of the cell's nucleus.


Activation of the receptor known as PPAR-gamma has an anti-proliferative effect as well as an ability to induce tumor regression in human lung cancer cell lines."


  • Anti-Angiogenic: 

    As the quote above also reveals, cannabidiol can stop cancer cells in another way, by preventing malignant tumors from forming the blood vessels they need to grow.


    The process of blood vessel creation is called angiogenesis, and since cannabidiol halts this, it is deemed anti-angiogenic.



  • Anti-Mitogenic:

    There is a 3rd way cannabidiol prevents cancer. It hinders or stops cell division (mitogenesis).


    One of the hallmarks of cancer is its unbridled growth, and amazingly, CBD actually stops the cancer spreading out of control by preventing the cancer cell from dividing and reproducing, and thus is deemed anti-mitogenic.



  • Anti-Metastatic: 

    Metastasis is the process by which a cancer can spread around the body, especially to other organs which have no direct contact with it.


    Cannabidiol prevents cancer from spreading to other organs, so it is called anti-metastatic.



  • Pro-Apoptotic: 

    Apoptosis is the medical word for programmed cell death.


    It's an important part of every healthy and functional cell that it contains a program for apoptosis, so it can commit suicide or let itself die if it is compromised.


    Cancer cells characteristically do not undergo apoptosis, however cannabidiol is pro-apoptotic and actually induces cancer cells to die.





  • Anti-Psychotic: 

    In addition to showing impressive potential for curing cancer, cannabidiol also exhibits anti-psychotic properties, which means it could help heal a whole host of mental illnesses.


    As the aforementioned article How CBD Works states:

"CBD's enzyme-mediated activation of the PPAR-alpha receptor may have antipsychotic effects.


Polymorphisms or mutations in the gene encoding PPAR-alpha can result in deficient PPAR-alpha signaling, which has been linked to schizophrenia.


PPAR-alpha activation is both anti-inflammatory and can decrease dopamine release, thereby minimizing schizophrenic symptoms."


  • Neuro-Protective: 

    Neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's) are another set of horrible diseases which are claiming the lives or more and more people.


    Fortunately, CBD shows potential for healing these too.


    Again, the issue comes back to the PPAR-activation (same article):

"PPAR-gamma activation degrades amyloid-beta plaque, a key molecule linked to the development of Alzheimer's disease.


This is one of the reasons why cannabidiol, a PPAR-gamma agonist, may be a useful remedy for Alzheimer's patients.


As an aside, PPAR receptors also regulate genes that are involved in energy homeostasis, lipid uptake, insulin sensitivity, and other metabolic functions.


Diabetics, accordingly, may benefit from a CBD-rich treatment regimen."


  • Anti-Inflammatory:

    Inflammatory diseases are another massive set of diseases that haunt the populations in developed countries, especially the US. Many nutritional experts and doctors have highlighted the strong connection between inflammation and disease.

As Dr Mark Hyman writes:

"Inflammation is a 'hot' topic in medicine. It appears connected to almost every known chronic disease - from heart disease to cancer, diabetes to obesity, autism to dementia, and even depression. 


Other inflammatory diseases such as allergies, asthma, arthritis, and autoimmune disease are increasing at dramatic rates…"

According to various studies cited by Medical Marijuana Inc, cannabidiol stops inflammation in various ways:

"(cannabidiol decreases) the production and release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and decrease the activation of the LPS-induced STAT1 transcription factor, a key factor in some of the pro-inflammatory process.


CBD, however, also reduces the activity of the NF-kappaB pathway, a primary pathway regulating pro-inflammatory genes, and up-regulates the activation of the STAT3 transcription factor, which induces anti-inflammatory events (Kozela, et al., 2010)."


  • Analgesic:

    Analgesic means pain-relieving. CBD is analgesic and is thus indicated for those suffering from inflammatory disease or conditions with chronic pain.



  • Anti-Convulsant:

    CBD has become famous for its ability to stop seizures and treat diseases such as epilepsy. 


    The overwhelming consensus of case studies, surveys and pre-clinical animal studies shows that cannabidiol is a powerful anti-convulsant.


    For a sampling of the studies done on this, see here and here.



  • Pro-Anxiolytic: 

    Finally, CBD also helps calms the nerves and reduce or eliminate anxiety, and thus is anti-anxiety or medically speaking pro-anxiolytic.


    The reason why CBD has this effect is probably due to its activation of the adenosine receptor.


    Adenosine receptors play major roles in brain and cardiovascular function (regulating oxygen intake and blood flow), as well as having anti-inflammatory effects throughout the body, which ties in with CBD's anti-inflammatory properties.

How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells


For those wanting a little more information on how cannabis kills cancer cells, I recommend watching a few of these short videos.

Dennis reveals how our bodies make cancer cells all the time, but our immune system (which includes the endocannabinoid system) can normally handle them.


However, when the immune system is compromised, it gets behind on killing cancer cells.


Cancer cells have distorted or damaged DNA. Luckily, when a cell turns cancerous, the number of cannabinoid receptors in the cell increases.


The body uses its endocannabinoid anandamide to stimulate the production of ceramide, which kills cancer cell mitochondria, starving the cancer cell.


The ceramide is intelligently guided; it somehow "knows" to kill damaged cells only and leave the healthy ones intact, much like the way vitamin B17 (aka amygdalin or laetrile) works to selectively target cancer cells too.





The Future of CBD Oil - Made Without Solvents


Rick Simpson, the Canadian hero who made CBD-rich cannabis oil, gave it away for free and healed many people, came up with a form of CBD oil where he used a solvent to extract it.


However, there are now many companies who are producing high-quality CBD oil from non-GMO, non-pesticided hemp, which they then decarboxylate (turn the acidic forms of the cannabinoids into the non-acidic forms, i.e. turn CBDa into CBD and THCa into THC, etc.)


I believe in the future, due to the unstoppable momentum of cannabis oil, medical marijuana will become completely decriminalized and legalized, and people all over will have access to high therapeutic grade CBD oil which contains no THC or psychoactive agents.





Conclusion - Let's Explore the Many Uses of Cannabis and CBD Oil


There are no coincidences in our world - only magic, mystery, synchronicity, conspiracy and connection of which we are often unaware.


The sheer fact that our body has its own endocannabinoid system, parallel to the phytocannabinoid system of the cannabis plant, is a fact of key significance and beyond mere coincidence.


Call it what you want - cannabis, hemp, marijuana, pot, weed, ganja or kush - this plant has massive potential as a first-class healer extraordinaire.


It's time for all of us around the world to study and use this plant for the bounty of benefits it offers, including making,

  • paper

  • textiles

  • cloth

  • rope

  • oil

  • fuel, well as for its nutritional benefits (hemp seed, hemp seed oil) and medical benefits (CBD oil).


It has already saved people's lives.


Imagine what else it can do…
