The body has receptors sensitive to the THC molecules all through it. Some are in the nervous system, but many are in the immune system. This is why Rick Simpson's Hemp Oil works to heal the body of cancer and a bunch of other stuff. The THC molecules activate the immune system to fix what might ail you
If you are making your own Hemp Oil, (or thinking of buying some) be certain that the extraction was done with alcohol (like Everclear), and NOT by the ether extraction method (Honey Oil). The alcohol extraction method allows all of the various active THC isomers to get into the Hemp Oil, while the ether (Honey Oil) method removes much of the isomers which are needed for the activation of the healing processes
The Hemp Oil won't get you high, since the extraction process removes those isomers, leaving only the ones which activate the immune system. Something I've been discussing with my friend in Colorado who runs the Phoenix Tears Research Foundation, is the possibility of using the Hemp Oil in massage, (use those rubber gloves, please!), on people with skin cancer. I figure that the skin absorption would get the stuff right where it is needed very fast
I should also point out that there is a huge difference between Cannabis Sativa, and Cannabis Indica. Both are healers, and both can get you high, but they do it in different ways, and are more appropriate for different people... depending...
Indica will simply knock you out, and some people find that Indica will cause rapid metabolism of water in muscles, leading them to get very tight, very fast. If you experience that with Indica, don't smoke it, since it isn't meant for you
Sativa, on the other hand, will get you high without knocking you out. I call it the Wake Up high : you're stoned, but you will find all kinds of ideas going through your head, and it might be a good idea to take notes
One of the Enlightened Star People species is responsible for seeding our planet with pot. We really owe them big time, considering all of the medical, and industrial uses for the plant. This species of Enlightened Star People look like the Hindu God, Ganesha, you know... the one with the elephant trunk for a nose? I'll leave you now with a visual of how they take bong hits
