Medical marijuana is gaining momentum worldwide as a natural medicine that provides safe alternatives to treatment by toxic chemicals. The purpose of this website is to promote education in regards to medical marijuana and to provide an interactive platform for discussion and collaboration.
As advocates of all forms of marijuana legalization, it is our mission to provide a place for groups and organizations to come together as one, working towards a common goal. We pledge to assist in changing the medical marijuana laws nationwide and educating others about marijuana... prohibition must end. Together, our numbers cannot be denied, and it is together that we shall overcome.
In one formulation, the topical analgesic and anti-inflammation liniment composition is prepared by crushing about (⅓ oz to 1.0 oz) (dry weight) of female cannabis green leaves of the plant Cannabis sativa L. The leaves contain hundreds of chemicals and scores of cannabinoids, including: 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC), 9-THC Propyl Analogue (THC-V), Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabidiol Propyl Analogue (CBD-V), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabichromene (CBC), Cannabichromene Propyl Analogue (CBC-V), Cannabigerol (CBG), many terpenoids and several flavonoids. The concentration of the psychoactive 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC) in the plant leaves may range from about 1% to about 15% per unit of volume with a concentration of over 10% being preferred.
The crushed leaves are then placed into a mixing container. About 16 fluid oz of a 70% alcohol (or higher) solution is poured into the container and mixed with the crushed leaves. The container is then tightly capped and the mixture is allowed to soak or steep in the container for about 15 to 30 days without opening the container. The container is gently shaken every 1 to 2 days during the steeping period. After the 15 to 30 day steeping period, the mixture is strained through a strainer (cheesecloth, coffee filter, mesh screen) to remove any solids from the mixture. The solids are discarded and the liquid is poured into a dispensing container or bottle (dark glass container is best) which is then capped, and the topical liniment is ready for use.
