Spring 2014

Greetings,

Even though it is still officially Winter, around here it looks like spring. I am seeing cherry and plum blossoms on the trees. Two weeks ago there were three salmon in our tiny seasonal creek, spawning babies. A very rare and welcome sight. Spring is my favorite time of year.

Epilepsy

Here is a picture that is worth more than 1,000 words.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The top picture is an EEG scan of a brain of a child with Epilepsy that is on several heavy pharmaceutical drugs.

The bottom picture is after 3 months use of cannabis rich in CBD.

Our client base and product line is expanding most rapidly in the epileptic community. We provide a tincture that is made with olive oil for the kids.

Valentine

I wanted to get this newsletter to you around Valentines Day, but I have been so busy. Our new strain is called Valentine X. It is slightly stronger than ACDC testing at 25:1 CBD:THC ratio. St. Valentine is the patron saint for Epilepsy and this medicine is especially good for Epileptic children. We make an olive oil based tincture of ACDC for the kids and it has proven to be very effective (90% effective) in reducing frequency, intensity and duration of the seizures.

While I do not have very much product at this time, I do have a few bottles of both alcohol based and oil based Valentine. I would like to make these available to a few families to test the efficacy compared to ACDC. Limit one ounce per family for now. We are growing a lot of these plants now and there will be product in two months. Contact Leonard for details.

Clones

At Synergy Wellness, we have been making lots of baby clones, both for ACDC and Valentine. Since Valentine looks and acts a lot like the ACDC strain, I am sure it is closely related. The flowers of Valentine tested at 18% CBD. For those interested in growing these strains, we have lots of babies available.

Leaves

For those of you that are interested in juicing the leaves, please know that this is a very seasonal event for us to have enough leaves to share with you. Now is the time. We have lots of leaves. Come by and pick up a bag or two. Each bag has 1.5-2 lbs of leaves and our fridge is getting quite full.

Research

Here are some recent articles of research on CBD and cannabinoids.
