Cannabis, God’s Medicine Wheel

Cannabis has been coevolving with human beings for hundreds of thousands of years as God’s phytocannabinoid delivery system. The plant is a back up for the human endocannabinoid system which regulates the stress and immune responses back into homeostasis and is the largest and most widespread receptor system in the body. The endocannabinoid system was first expressed in our ancestor the sea squirt 600 million years ago.

This plant gifts the largest package of possible healing essential oils (terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids) which synergistically work with the over 100 phytocannabinoids to deliver beneficial mental and physical benefits in a true medicine wheel that can be dialed to treat the largest number of medical conditions and modulate the greatest number of mental effects of any substance on earth.

The cannabis plant creates cannabinoids to promote its own health and prevent disease. Cannabinoids are antioxidants that protect the plant from UV radiation. Cannabinoids neutralize the harmful free radicals generated by UV rays, protecting the cells. In humans, free radicals cause aging, cancer, and impaired healing.

Most plants that contain essential oils contain a few with one or more predominating. Peppermint contains 5 different terpenes. Cannabis contains over 100 different terpenes and over 100 different cannabinoids at present count.

About Ian Benouis

Ian Benouis is a West Point graduate, former Blackhawk helicopter pilot, US Army officer and combat veteran who participated in Operation Just Cause in the Republic of Panama. This operation was the largest combat operation in US history focused directly on the War on Drugs. He was a pilot-in-command and his aviation brigade flew more night vision goggle hours than any unit in the military except for the Task Force 160 Special Operations which his unit was ultimately rolled up into when the Fort Ord, California military base was shut down. Ian grew up in Hawaii in the 1970’s where cannabis was decriminalized and fully integrated in to the culture. He has been healing himself of trauma for over 25 years with sacred plants, a spiritual practice, and being a student and practitioner of ethnobotany. Ian was a pharmaceutical representative for Pfizer after he got out of the Army witnessing firsthand the meteoric rise of the SSRI’s and synthetic opioids in the early 1990's. He is a casualty of the drug war having been busted for a friend’s cannabis while in law school. Ian is an intellectual property attorney who has been working in the corporate world for over 20 years in the primary roles of VP of Sales and Marketing and General Counsel. He is a political activist in the cannabis and natural plant medicine space nationally and locally in Texas. Ian has also been the Chairman of the Board for a public policy foundation in Texas for over seven years. Ian was featured in the Spike Jonze produced episode Stoned Vets on Weediquette the cannabis focused series on Viceland on HBO with a number of other veterans protesting the VA’s policy on medical cannabis and trying to end the veteran suicide epidemic. In 2016 Ian organized a trip for six veterans with PTSD to Peru in May for a 10-day plant diet including ayahuasca and other plant medicines with three Shipibo shaman brothers that are third generation plant medicine healers. Ian also took some of the same veterans to Mexico for treatment with iboga and 5-Meo-DMT. This experience was captured on video and was released as a documentary on March 16, 2017 entitled Soldiers of the Vine. He is member of the team working on the movie From Shock to Awe a feature-length documentary that will chronicle the journeys of military veterans as they seek relief from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with the help of ayahuasca, MDMA and cannabis.
