Pursuing the possibilities of all things Hemp...
Our calling is to help communities understand the potential of hemp products with a focus on cannabis-based cancer care.
We’re following the “Pay it Forward” model, but with Hemp.
Through our partnership with Power Biopharms, we are able to provide free hemp products to qualifying cancer patients while following their journeys as case studies.
Patients: Apply to see if you qualify for the program!
Partners: You can make tax-deductible product donations and financial contributions to keep the funds in our cannabis community.
Volunteers: Contact us! Your time, talents and networks are the fuel that runs this adventure!
Connect: Follow us on Facebook and Instagram! We're always looking for ways that cannabis businesses, our charity, and cancer patients can find win-win-win results in confronting this disease together!
How it Works
1) Patients visit the website to apply.
2) Upon approval they receive the full registration form.
3) Once the registration form is completed, we email them to schedule an interview.
4) They will receive a 1-time code to pick up the donated products from a nearby partnering store.
5) Weekly codes are sent upon completion of the weekly surveys for the duration of their treatments.
'Hemp molecules are medicinal' -HHS
"Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases."
"Oxidative associated diseases include, without limitation, free radical associated diseases, such as neoplasia (Cancer)."
"(Cannabinoids) produce detectable benefit by decreasing symptoms, increasing survival, or providing other detectable clinical benefits in treating or preventing the pathological state."
"Although the treatment can be used prophylactically in any patient in a demographic group at significant risk for such diseases, subjects can also be selected using more specific criteria, such as a definitive diagnosis of the condition."
"The administration of any exogenous antioxidant cannabinoid would inhibit the progression of the oxidation associated disease as compared to a subject to whom the cannabinoid was not administered. The antioxidant effect, however, increases with the dose of the cannabinoid."
Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants
Department of Health and Human Services Patent #6630507
'Hemp Molecules have Anti-tumor effects' -NCI
“Cannabinoids may have a protective effect against the development of certain types of tumors.
Cannabinoids may cause antitumor effects by various mechanisms, including induction of cell death, inhibition of cell growth, and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis invasion and metastasis.
Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their nontransformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death.”
Development (prevents oxidative stress)
Proliferation (cell-cycle arrest)
Apoptosis (induces programmed cell death)
Angiogenesis (inhibits blood supply, starves tumor)
Metastasis (inhibits migration, adhesion and invasion, blocks ID1 gene)
Targets cancer cells (type specific)
Protects healthy cells (neuroprotectant)
Boosts standard of care (synergistic)*
Inhibits recurrence (disrupts stem cells)*
