Conventional medicine views cancer as a genetic disorder, originating in DNA, where genes that control growth and division of cells begin to behave abnormally.  In a cancerous state, cells behave erratically, quickly multiplying, altering the normal metabolic activity and cell production. Mitochondria, found in all normal cells, create necessary energy for living organisms to properly function. For this reason, the mitochondria are known as the “powerhouse” of cells and are essential for activating natural cell death, known as apoptosis. Cancer cells produce energy differently than normal cells. In cancer cells, reduction of mitochondrial function is observed. This allows for inhibited apoptosis, proliferation of

Your body is a state of consciousness, often caught within damaging patterns of thought that stem from past trauma.

The most obvious difference is that hemp and CBD cannot give you a high. Because of this association, the legal interpretation of the attorney general here in Idaho is that all hemp products are illegal. This would mean that the paper, clothes, and protein powder that is made out of hemp would all be illegal. On a federal level, hemp products with less than 0.03 % THC are considered
