In the early half of the 20th century, petrochemical giants organized a coup on the medical research facilities, hospitals and universities. The Rockefeller family sponsored research and donated sums to universities and medical schools which had drug based research. They further extended this policy to foreign universities and medical schools where research was drug based through their "International Education Board". Establishments and research which were were not drug based were refused funding and soon dissolved in favor of the lucrative pharmaceutical industry
Today we know how dangourous the chemical drugs are. as example there is a landmark article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) on April 15, 1998 entitled, "Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions in Hospitalized Patients", evaluated serious and fatal adverse drug reactions (ADR)s in U.S. hospitals. The study revealed that in 1994, ADRs accounted for 2,216,000 serious events and 106,000 hospital deaths.  According to a 2003 comprehensive study of medical peer-review journals and government health statistics, there are an additional 199,000 fatal ADR outpatient deaths in the U.S. annually. ,  According to the study, there are approximately 783,936 iatrogenic (medically induced) deaths every year in the U.S. Furthermore, the actual figure is estimated to be much higher, as only a fraction (between 5% and 20%) of iatrogenic acts are ever reported.

In the second paper published in the Archives of General Psychiatry (12 January 2009) 'Distinct Effects of _9-Tetrahydrocannabinol and Cannabidiol on Neural Activation During Emotional Processing' the researchers investigated the neurophysiological basis of the effects of cannabis on anxiety, using faces that had fearful expressions. Normally viewing fearful faces provokes anxiety, activates the amygdala, and increases skin conductance (a measure of autonomic arounsal). Administration of CBD reduced the response of the amygdale to fearful faces, and this effect was correlated with its effect on skin conductance. Please refer to the Archives of General Psychiatry, January 2009 issues for full copies of this paper. (Arch Gen Psychiatry, 2009;66 (1): 95-105.)

In raw form, marijuana leaves and buds are actually loaded with a non-psychoactive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer nutrient compound known as cannabidiol (CBD) that is proving to be a miracle "superfood" capable of preventing and reversing a host of chronic illnesses.
Though you may not have heard much about it, the CBD found in the marijuana plant -- marijuana is technically just a vegetable, by the way -- is a highly medicinal substance with unique immune-regulating capabilities. Since the human body already contains a built-in endogenous cannabinoid system, complete with cannabinoid receptors, inputting CBD from marijuana can help normalize the body's functional systems, including cell communication and proper immune function.
