  • The title of this video is misleading! People need to stop using videos like this for confirmation bias of their favorite plant/natural supplement. This isn’t new activity like the title makes it seem. Pharma has been heavily scouring plants for medicinal active ingredients for DECADES. So for them to report on this now is stupid and gives false implications that pharma is only starting to do this now. Billions of dollars go towards searching in exotic places for plants and all the compounds found go into a database. What the compounds can be used for is yet to be determined because there’s so many found. To all the CBD enthusiasts out there. CBD is psychoactive, meaning it can disrupt a balancing act in your body at unregulated doses. Sometimes potentially irreversible like the way the body regulates testosterone when using too many steroids. I don’t think it should be used recreationally, only medicinally at studied doses. Coincidence or not, most of my friends I know who are enthusiastic about CBD are really mentally slow. I can’t be 100% certain, but I can only suspect it’s caused by CBD overuse.

  • 80% of the "weeds" in my yard are edible and medicinal ... so I landscaped an area that looks visually appealing and let them grow. Now I'm learning the details about everything that nature provides for my health. Marijauana inspired me to learn more about plants. The immediate effect shows the power of plants. I quit smoking pot 9 years ago, because the stonger strains didn't agree with me....but it got me thinking, if a minute amount of pot can be felt immediately in the brain, what about plants that don't give us a buzz, but have powerful effects on our internal organs?

  • Indigenous people have always had the knowledge of plants and their remedies big pharma only wants to profit from their knowledge that's always been free!

  • Synthetic drugs create synthetic body for humans to be called humanoids, not 100 percent humankind. Some synthetic drugs cost more than a new highend SUV.

  • This is how the world made medicine from the start. Greed is the cause of all side effects. None with the natural plants, just the synthesized version.

  • Some natural remedies have worked for me, some haven't. CBD stopped my panic attacks, but it didn't help my other anxiety symptoms or my depression. I tried a natural supplement that was supposed to help with ADHD, but I didn't notice a difference. I used various essential oils to try to help my rosacea, but none of them seemed to have an effect. I definitely think natural medicine should be the first thing to try, and then you can try artificial means if those don't work.

  • The signs are all around us, globally. The rapture and when Jesus returns to earth will be a global event. But no one knows the day or time. Jesus Christ- Saviour of the world. Compassion for the lost, Love that sent Him to the cross. Today is the day of Salvation, accept and follow Jesus. ❤️🙏 Don't gamble with our souls/enternity. What if at the end of our lives we find out Jesus really is who He claims to be ( the highest claim, a claim like no other claim). Then what? Then it's too late :( ❤️ 🙏

    • Allah is the one true God. Repent now, or face an eternity in hell because you didn't obey His commandments as laid out in the Qur'an, revealed by his one and only prophet Muhammad. _That's_ how it sounds when you try to proselytize to an atheist. Please, keep your fairy tales to yourself.

No side effects and no withdrawal from opoids yet the FDA wants to ban it. Pharmaceutical companies can't pay patent a naturally occuring substance. No money can be made.
