For many years false information has been passed around claiming we must concentrate cannabis and hemp in order to receive benefits from it. I personally have been ridiculed and my name dragged through the dirt more than once for creating Cannabis Paste. I even went to the extent of a $25,000 Cannabis Cook-off, but no one would take the cash challenge. This challenge is still open to this day. Before I attempt to bend your mind by a simple analogy, simply ask first where is the proof that we must concentrate cannabis and hemp in order to make it an effective medicine?
If you were to take a 1 gram bud and take it to a laboratory for testing and the results, for example, were 19% CBD, that would mean that bud contains 190 mg of CBD. This is a scientific fact. Now take that same bud and drop it into a Mason jar and decarboxylate it at the perfect time and heat, you have 190 mg of CBD in the jar. This is a scientific fact. Unless you can prove the cannabinoids got scared and jumped out of the jar in fear of being eaten, that makes Hemp Paste 100% efficient. This means we have created the most perfect and natural product possible with cannabis and hemp. Now, add a catalyst like a fatty acid (such as MCT oil or coconut oil) to bond to the cannabinoids and you have lift-off.
The answer to the world.
When making RSO or CBD oil, the method requires you to extract the cannabinoids (THC or CBD ) from the plant matter. The used-up plant matter is thrown in the trash can. Canna International has lab tested the used up plant matter and found that 80% of the cannabinoids are still present in the leftover plant matter. By using our proprietary paste method, Canna International has opened the door for people who could not afford this medicine, to now have access to it by dropping the cost by 80%.
For those who make or know anyone who makes RSO or THC oil, have them take a small piece of the (extracted) used up bud and dry out the solvents then have them smoke it. Why is that one small piece gets them really high? Again the purpose of medicine is not to get high but this only proves that only a small amount of the cannabinoids was actually extracted.

One could imagine with today's technology and the scientific knowledge that mankind possesses, that by now we would have figured out how to administer and create a safe, natural and effective product out of Hemp and Cannabis.Yet it seems that we are stuck in the "stoned" age when it comes to figuring out how to use this natural plant. Our ignorance has evolved from burning it, to soaking the plant in isopropyl alcohol to extract the oils, to pushing butane through it and now to the
Most animal studies with cannabidiol utilize synthetic, single-molecule CBD produced by biochemical laboratories for research purposes. In contrast, whole plant extractions typically include CBD, THC, and more than 400 trace compounds. Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
It is important to consider the entourage effect (or lack thereof) when extrapolating data based on animal studies: 100 milligrams of synthetic single-molecule CBD is not equivalent to 100 milligrams of a CBD-rich whole plant cannabis extract.
“Cannabis is inherently polypharmaceutical,” Dr. John McPartland notes, “and synergy arises from interactions between its multiple components.”
Consider the role of terpenes, for example. Terpenes are
