In Chapter 7, it is seen that prohibition is still preventing cannabis medicine from helping millions of potential patients in many parts of the world, but in recent years, many places have legalized medical cannabis including 15 US states, Canada and many European countries. Scientific research is making remarkable discoveries about cannabinoids found in cannabis as well as in the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. The healing potential of cannabis continues to expand beyond our expectations. US government research has discovered that THC kills cancer cells and people like Canada’s Rick Simpson have found that concentrated cannabis oil has cured cancer and other chronic illnesses. Marijuana medicine is still meeting tough resistance from the medical and legal establishment but the tide is turning and this natural medicine is taking its rightful place as a master healer.
The Hemp Solution is a 10 chapter feature length documentary that explores all the issues surrounding cannabis hemp – its fascinating history, it’s thousands of uses, the economic and cultural forces behind its prohibition, the healing benefits of cannabinoids like THC and CBD, and how humanity can benefit from a new harmonious relationship with this amazing plant. Filmmaker Sol Ramana-Clarke takes viewers on a stunning visual journey from hemp’s origins in the Himalayas where it is still being used for food, fibre and medicine, to Europe, the USA and Australia where industrial hemp is being rediscovered, and new research is finding many uses for cannabis medicine including fighting cancer, pain relief, reducing inflamation and much more.
