    Abstract

    Cannabis, the plant that has been around for thousands of years and has been used for both medicinal and industrial purposes, i.e., food fuel fiber paper and medicine throughout the world. It was due to racism, politics and greed not due to evidence-based medicine that the plant was put into probation in 1937 In the United States of America and removed from the U S Pharmacopeia in 1942. Our bodies have multiple systems, yet most healthcare providers and people are not aware that an Endocannabinoid System exists, nor its function in homeostasis with health and wellness. The lack of education and misinformation  regarding cannabis has led to stigma and disparities that impact humanity. In this presentation I will describe what is cannabis, the history of cannabis and differences between hemp and marijuana. What is the Endocannabinoid System(ECS) and its impact on various systems. How imbalance or deficiencies in Endocannabinoids impacts diseases in people and pets and how supplementation with cannabis helps to ease one’s quality of life. In the past decade I have become actively involved as an educator, advocate and activist, with a mission to change the stigma regarding Cannabis and for the world to know about the Endocannabinoid system and I do it through education. Dr Uma Says that this “plant is for people, pets, the planet, for peace and for profit, one’s profit is your health and wellness.” Cannabis is a global solution for multiple problems that society faces today locally and globally. From the start to the end the cannabis plant has an impact on the planet The plant requires no pesticides, every part of the plant can create sustainable products for consumption for people and animals which will improve our lives and the future of the planet. Multiple products from food to cosmetics, to building material, to medicines, etc. The cannabis plant can be used to address  Global warming, climate change, disparities, diseases and safer alternatives, etc. Cannabis can impact our environment, the water, the soil and the air we breathe, and our world.
