One Way To Get CBD To The Masses


My experience with whole plant CBD rich medicines tells me that this should be available to everyone and anyone anywhere who wants it.

That is a very tall order as most of the world could never afford to purchase all the wonderful extractions that are just becoming available in a few States and limited in those States. So, how can we even know what direction to move to achieve the goal of “CBD in every kitchen”?

The correct seed has not yet been found, but that seed will have the following characteristics genetic characteristics:
1. Auto-flower
2. Rich CBD, something like a 2:1 or 3:1 CBD:THC would be ideal
3. Choice of feminized or non-feminized.

Let me take these one at a time.

1. Auto-flower
Auto-flower cannabis plants or Ruderalis as it is often called is a descendent of some Sativa strain that grew for a long time in Siberia. It is different from typical Cannabis Sativa strains in that it has no vegetating period. That is, once the seed is cracked and the seedling begins growing, the plant is done with full flowering in 70 days! Very short time. The lighting is not critical and we are experimenting on how poorly we can grow them and still create decent buds. The plants do not produce much, perhaps an oz/plant for most folks, however, you can have a dozen of them in a square meter on your balcony in summer or winter. You can grow them under low wattage lights. This means that if one is given a feminized auto-flower seed, as long as they give it decent light of some kind, they will have some flowers. If they plant 6 of them, they should have 2 oz/month. Not bad. In Europe this is referred to as the “Sea of Green”.

2. Rich CBD – This is pretty self explanatory. Have a seed that produces CBD every time.

3. Seeds that are 100% feminized means that 100% of the plants will be female and produce flowers. This is great, EXCEPT, if you want to make seeds. Most seed companies prefer to sell feminized seeds as this keeps them in much better control of their genetics. In this situation, however, we want as many people as possible to have it, so folks should choose whether they want to get CBD just for themselves or also to get more to others.

With these CBD rich flowers now growing in lots and lots of places, we can all work to develop some consistent, safe and inexpensive home extraction processes. Even just extracting on the stovetop with oil, would yield a very rich CBD oil. Checking on decarboxylation and a few other issues will be problems, but these can be solved.

A new project I am thinking about is sort of the anti-christ to the huge CO2 extraction devices I am familiar with. What about a home or collective based small/cheap extraction machine. It could be a machine that can be sold or used for many plant based products and would be a legal contraption. I have some very early ideas on how this might work and am very hopen to hear from any of you who have read this very long blog.

Allan Frankel, MD Dr Allan Frankel is one of the few physicians in the US who truly understands Cannabis as a medicine. All treatments suggested have been well studied. Every patient seen by Dr Frankel is given a personally created Treatment Plan created with the patient's specific issues defined. Plant medicine requires "tuning" of the dosing. Dr Frankel works with his patients thru a messaging portal. The use of this portal, allows quick and simple follow up contact with Dr Frankel. Patients are not charged for these messages, as this is how Dr Frankel has learned what he has learned. Follow up appointments in person or by phone/video are also available when needed

Rationing Health Care

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
