VIDEO : A Journey For Oil Explores Medicinal Cannabis

This 16 min. doc is an easy introduction to the history and current controversy over CBD medication in the U.S., and a tale many families are now living, as medical refugees forced to relocate to states with more common sense laws on medicinal cannabis.

A Journey for Oil from TIME Video on Vimeo

This is the story of a family's illegal cross-country transport of cannabis oil for their epileptic daughter, who, prior to the treatment, was suffering up to 200 seizures a day. The piece is a look inside the quasi-legal world of medical marijuana and CBD therapy for children.

Despite the article's apparent commitment to caution and its bowing to scientific study, there's little on the political forces and interests in keeping scientists shackled to Reagan-era naiveté on cannabis. The phrase "marijuana oil" that TIME uses to describe these extracts can be slightly misleading if you're new to the cannabis.

To distinguish marijuana's qualities from industrial hemp, "marijuana" is more commonly used to delineate cannabis strains with higher amounts of THC, whereas hemp can be grown to produce very low-THC, high-CBD extracts, as well as quality food, fiber and a large variety of other products.

Hemp is not some clandestine cover for marijuana, but both are a part of what make up cannabis, only bred for different uses. One reason many epileptic children miss out on this opportunity for therapy is lazy media and highly politicized drug rhetoric – please read responsibly.
