One World Cannabis which deals in research and development of cannabis-based treatments for diseases, including treatments for diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.

There is no evidence to substantiate that smoking marijuana can cure Parkinson’s Disease, but studies show that cannabis can be useful in treating it.

One World Cannabis intends to generate clinical data for various medical conditions based on the development of specific cannabis strains, the combinations of the cannabinoids THC and CBD, and optimal dosages.

The company’s first clinical trials are to be for fibromyalgia, psoriasis/basal cell carcinoma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and seizures. The company’s second set of clinical trials, which have not yet begun and are not yet funded, are anticipated to focus on the development of cannabis medicines for Crohn’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Tourette’s Syndrome, migraines, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s Disease, pediatric epilepsy, prostate cancer and diabetes.

One World Cannabis recently raised $2 million and is discussing with several Israeli hospitals the possibility of carrying out clinical trials.

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals is focused on developing and marketing drugs, therapies and food supplements based on the active ingredients found in unique strains of the cannabis plant.

Cannabics recently received from the Israeli Health Ministry permission to establish an advanced R&D laboratory for medical research in the field of cannabinoid science.

The company says its aim is to be one of the first and few companies in the world to commercialize indication specific and clinically tested cannabis-based medical products.

Dr. Zohar Koren, CEO, stated, “The exciting scientific field of cannabinoid research has been largely neglected throughout most of the 20th century due to a total ban on this field of research. Thus, the available scientific knowledge regarding active cannabinoids and their mechanisms of action in various disease pathways is dramatically lacking in comparison to other therapeutic fields. There is a huge space of uncharted territory to explore with regards to the potential therapeutic roles of this class of compounds for diverse indications.”

  1. There is no medical evidence to support any cures. Drs who are impartial and who have done the studies have proven it cures nothing.

    In order for marijuana to cure some ailment, you first need to be a pot head. Then and only then will marijuana cure everything.

    What I can’t figure out is this, most of these people who get cancer and then claim pot cured it, had been smoking pot their whole life. So how did they get cancer then?

    I think people just want to get high and whatever excuse they can use to smoke it will be used. Simple as that.

    I actually don’t have anything against pot. I have something against being dishonest about one’s intentions and how they resort to lying and fibbing and making claims that they cannot back up because they are simply being dishonest with themselves and the fact that they just want to get high.

    It’s ok now, it has become very accepted in most states and excuses really aren’t needed any more.

  2. We think, in US, that legalizing pot in US, will greatly destabilize, Mexican economy, causing an even more massive immigration problem. Possibly, all the recent demonstrations in Washington state, were not Ferguson MO, related, but a show of power to take over pot industry, by Blacks, who traditional have not been living in that part of US. Early info, coming in, says pot, is a Hugh money maker for Washington state and Colorado. There are a hugh new amounts of jobs, BUT, these jobs are being so controlled, no one can get them, unless of course you belong to the pot mafia…

  4. I watched this documentary on a very young child that suffered tremendously with seizures. Her parents never knew her personality because she was almost in a seizure state 24/7..They moved to Colorado for a last resort for medical marijuania. Shortly after she started tsking it, the seizues left. She played, ate, talked just like a normal child. It was amazing. It has been proven tomhelp, with seizues. It alsomhas been proven to help with the side effects of chemo. What people dont know who make negarive remarks is that they can now grow it without the THC. So NO..its not a pothead thing..

  6. If you only knew of the deaths caused by the biggest lie ever told.Life taken from every race in every country and every religion millions upon millions of people who have needlessly suffered because of profit and greed! Marijuana or cannabis is the most powerful medicine on the planet. While the news reports of the intoxication or pain relief from smoking it you don't hear the whole truth. Cannabinoids contained in marijuana are being patented to treat almost every disease.Marijuana is a vegetable getting high from it is the side effect of the medication.Eating or juicing or consuming concentrates not smoking it is how you should use this medication.It has been patented to cure and treat terminial cancer, alzheismer's disease, M.S., epilepsy, treat and prevent concussions,C.T.E.and H.E, hepatitis c. The list goes on and on and on there is no end in sight.If the deaths were not bad enough how about the life taken due to incarceration over a lie! Lets talk about segeration in the form of moving states away from friends and family due to the legality of cannabis.I ask myself why people seem not to care about this are they all to brainwashed to believe the truth.Every person in the world in some way shape or form has been touched by this. EVERYONE!! Either in the form of yourself or a loved ones illness, disease, death or incarceration over a LIE. How long must we wait for the truth to set us free and help the ones we love and care about? Here is a partial medical marijuana patent list from G.W. Pharmaceutical and lets not forgat the patent the united states health and human services has on cannabinoids "patent #6630507 cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants" it seems that marijuana never killed braincells as they have patented it to protect them. http://www.faqs.org/patents/assignee/gw-pharma
