What Happened When They Treated Autistic Children With Medical Cannabis

Published

on

For some bizarre reason, there is not a state in the US that recognizes Autism as a qualifying condition to use cannabis medically, except in the case of California where doctors can prescribe cannabis to anyone they feel will benefit medicinally.

That’s not to say that activists in some states aren’t fighting and working hard to add Autism to the list, but with the endless stream of anecdotal and peer-reviewed evidence that proves that Autistic people function better using cannabis, it isn’t something we should have to fight for. It’s something we should be embracing right away.

In the Spring of 2014 we started working with our son’s new friend friend Noah to treat his Autism and Dravet Syndrome with higher THC cannabis and nutrition. Noah was on several AEDs and supplements as well as a 20:1 CBD oil at the time, and while his seizure control was very good, Noah’s neuronal activity was anything but, he was suffering every day.

Noah did not communicate and was very obsessive, compulsive and hyperactive. He had no comprehension, he defied and attacked those around him, and his coordination and motor skills were very limited. I felt that the CBD was too high in ratio for Noah and after doing a bit of research, I began to feel intuitively that children with Autism may often benefit more from the higher THC ratios as the THC redirects the neurons in a way that is more manageable for Autistic persons.

We started Noah the next day on a higher THC ratio medicine in addition to an inactivated (THC-a) oil….and the helmet came off. Noah’s new life started that day. He could smile, sit still, calm down, communicate, cry, hug, listen…..he could be a little boy. Noah is 4.5 years old and has come from being developmentally less than 18 months old to about 30 months old in less than 6 months. He has been having milestones every week or two, catching up cognitively where he was prevented from growing and learning before.

We slowly added in more CBD from high CBD strains into Noah’s mixed strain oils until we learned that Noah benefited most from a 1:3 CBD:THC ratio from mixed strains and a 2:1 Cannatonic phenotype made into oil, but the higher THC ratio was important at night as Noah was able to stop taking his 7mg dose of Melatonin and sleep through the night without seizure activity. During the day Noah seems more focused and better able to learn with the 2:1 Cannatonic. We acknowledge though that his brain and his body will change throughout the years to come and he may need different ratios and medicines.

Emery, age 4.

Noah and his mom Lisa have become good friends of ours over the months and we have grown together and branched out to help dozens of other Autistic and Epileptic families, as well as families of children with cancer and other serious conditions and diseases. But to our surprise, it was what we learned about our own 4 year old son Emery through our work with other Epileptic children that would change our lives forever.

unnamed

Emery has had an Autism diagnosis since Spring of 2014. We knew then that we would work as hard as possible and do whatever it took to make sure that Emery’s Autism, or features of his impairment, would qualify him for two doctor’s recommendations so that he could use cannabis legally under our supervision. We knew then that it would change everything for him.

We had felt since Emery was a baby that he was on the Autism spectrum, and we learned later on that his teaching himself to read and putting together 100 and 300 piece puzzles from memory by age two correlated to Hyperlexia, but it wasn’t until around the time of his Autism diagnosis that he started to express “Rage.”

Emery is a big kid, in the 97th percentile for height, and he’s as strong as a bull. So when we started receiving punches, kicks, and headbutts for simply trying to put him in his carseat, or for trying to comfort him….it was very hard on the heart, on the soul.

And when Emery’s 2 year old sister would try to comfort him, and be projected across the room or thrown down on the ground and jumped on, it defeated our souls on some days. Emery was going to have to be separated from his sister on a permanent basis.

We were already looking for land up north where we could just live and farm on, with more room for separate houses or trailers. We didn’t feel like Emery was digressing mentally, but we had to face the facts that whatever was happening to him, our little genius was going through the same stages that we saw many other kids with his diagnosis go through before things like self injury behavior and bolting became an issue.

When Emery was 2 months old I witnessed a seizure from a reaction to his first dTap shot. We were only picking and choosing vaccines, and it was only going to be PC and dTap. We had only done a limited amount of research and were comfortable with those vaccines.

That was the only time I was ever sure Emery had actually had a seizure, although through the years we became concerned about the way he would “wake himself” at night and seem stiff for up to a minute or more or roll his eyes back a little. Sometimes he would wake up screaming and start and stop for seemingly no reason. But these types of movements and actions aren’t what people typically think of as seizure activity.

It wasn’t until Lisa and some of the other parents we worked with noticed how often Emery would fall for no reason or would seem to space out and walk into something. We realized from talking to other parents that this wasn’t a feature of his Autism, and why would it be?

We started paying more attention to what we thought could be seizure activity, and sure enough, the convulsions actually started to evolve around that time into something we could recognize more easily. He was definitely having seizures, not bad dreams, and we had simply never known.

We immediately scheduled Emery an appointment with a neurologist, one that unfortunately wasted Emery’s precious time for over four months before we found a great neurologist that we could trust to help him. While Emery’s Epilepsy is not yet diagnosed, his seizure diagnosis was enough for him to get the doctor’s recommendations he needed to get his card to start using cannabis!

Emery’s Autism Impairment has been almost completely reversed on cannabis oil. He’s a happy productive member of our family and he will never have to be separated from us.

If it seems like a bold statement, then you’ll understand why it’s been so important for us to raise awareness with short videos like the one seen above until we can raise enough funds to finish shooting our full length film.

Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested By FBI on Charges Connected To Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this morning in New Hampshire according to FBI spokeswoman Adrienne Senatore. At this time, charges against Maxwell are sealed, and prosecutors have scheduled a midday press conference in New York to provide more details on the case.

Charges against Maxwell came almost a year after Epstein was arrested by FBI agents on July 6, 2019. Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself in a federal jail in August 2019, although many believe he was killed given he could name many high profile figures connected to his ring.

Why It Matters: Maxwell is heavily connected to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who operated a sex/pedophile ring that tailored to high profile individuals, business people, entertainers and politicians.

Her arrest may be important in helping to bring down more people connected to the ring which include Hillary and Bill Clinton amongst other high profile names.

The Takeaway:

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act on our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why. They are also beginning to question why we put our trust and support in people who operate in this manner.

Looking Deeper:

We have interviewed a survivor of elite pedophile rings like the one Epstein and Maxwell ran. Her name is Anneke Lucas and you can watch her full testimony here on CETV.

You can also watch a recent documentary called Out of Shadows that explores this topic in detail on CETV as well.

Environmentalist Censored For Shifting His Opinion On Climate Change

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Forbes.com deleted a new article from environmentalist Michael Shellenberger. His perspective on climate change shifted, and he decided to write about it. Forbes wasn't having it.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we deciding to censor different perspectives as opposed to explore them? Is our emotional intelligence so undeveloped collectively that we cannot have civil conversations?

What Happened: Michael Shellenberger, a long time environmentalist who has been in the trenches helping to save the world’s last unprotected redwoods, co-created the predecessor to today’s Green New Deal and led an effort to keep nuclear power plants operating in order to prevent a spike of emissions, has shifted his perspective on climate change. Prior to today, he was holding the perspective that we must be alarmed about the fact that the world will end in a short amount of time if we don’t act to reduce carbon emissions immediately.

He shifted his opinion based on exploring emerging science on the subject. He then went on to write a book called Never Apocalypse, which seeks to help explore what we can do to better our environment from a grounded and accurate point of view, as opposed to alarmism.

He wrote an article on Forbes website titled On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize For the Climate Scare.” Two days laterForbes decided to remove his article.

Why It Matters: The fact that Forbes removed an article that was grounded, calm, well written and explored new conversations illustrates the emerging culture of ‘censor anything that can get us in trouble’ or ‘censor anything that doesn’t agree with mainstream conjecture.”

We’ve come into a time where our collective lack of emotional intelligence is surfacing deeply for us to address. When we disagree on something, we struggle to explore things together. When a company says something they feel might get them in trouble, they run away in fear that the angry mob will come after them.

All that happened here was a man wrote an article that brought some new light to a conversation that has been very polarized and is causing people to react out of emotion instead of logic and the heart. Instead of listening and exploring, censorship ensues.

The Takeaway: I spoke at a high school here in Toronto last year. At the end of my talk, many students came up to me to talk, discuss ideas and share feedback. The vast majority of them explained to me that they were terrified that the world was going to end in just a few years. They felt they had no future because of the acts of generations prior who were causing CO2 levels to rise so high that the world would end.

I thought to myself, wow, an entire generation of kids being pushed into fear, anxiety and depression based on information that isn’t even accurate. This information was created by politicians and pushed out by media. Scientists categorically do not agree with the idea that the world is coming to an end as a result of CO2 emissions. Yet not enough people are telling people this, most of media is staying silent on other perspectives and censorship even shuts down opposing ideas.

What type of world will we create if we can’t discuss basic ideas? What  type of world will we create when we choose to run, hide and censor as opposed to having important conversations? How can we stop identifying so deeply with positions, so that we can be more free to shift ideas when new information helps us understand things better?

Looking Deeper:

I made a film last year called Regenerate: Beyond The CO2 Narrative. After 10 years of researching and investigating climate change, I came to many conclusions that I felt needed to be shared, yet were extremely rare in public discourse. One of the most important aspects of Regenerate was that we simply are looking at our environment from such a limited point of view that we can’t identify the real issues we face, and that our level of thinking, or consciousness, is completely disconnected from the solutions required to truly shift our relationship with earth. Thus, we are creating solutions that never truly address making the environment cleaner or better long term.

I encourage you to check out the film trailer below, and if you wish to watch the film, it’s available on our member platform called CETV. You can start a free 7 day trial to watch it if you like. We also discuss this story in more detail in episode 2 of The Takeway, an orignal show we have on CETV.

Are Mandatory Masks A Precursor To A Mandatory Coronavirus Vaccine?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Masks are being mandated in different parts of the world if citizens wish to enter into grocery stores or public buildings. It is stated that this is being done to respect one another and to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • Reflect On:

    Are masks a precursor to the vaccine? Will the coronavirus vaccine become mandatory to travel, fly, go to the grocery store and other places? If it is, would you take it? How much of a backlash would a coronavirus vaccine mandate cause?

What’s happening in our world today with regards to the coronavirus and censorship of opinions that question the mainstream conjecture is the same thing that has happened with vaccines over the last couple of decades. We are witnessing a targeted ridicule campaign of any opinion that opposes those of organizations like the World Health Organization.

When it comes to masks, many places, including cities and counties within Ontario, Canada, where CE is based, have mandated masks if you wish to enter any type of public building. Places in the United States and all across the world have experienced a backlash with regards to whether or not masks should be mandatory.

When you look into it, the evidence suggesting that a cloth or medical mask can protect citizens from severe respiratory viruses, and some wouldn’t even consider the new coronavirus severe, is not abundant. In fact, there are multiple studies that emphasize this as well as point to the idea that in some cases they may do more harm than good. You can read more about that here.

Is this really about the coronavirus? Is this really about wearing a mask? Or is something else going on here?

Social Conditioning?

Ultimately, the inspiration for this article was a post I recently came across on twitter by Neville Raymond.

Regardless of how some may feel about Neville’s character, his words here are worthy of introspective thought. Are masks a measure put in place to lead us up to the next measure? A mandatory vaccine? While some countries have stated that vaccines won’t be mandatory, the United States has secured 300 million vaccines, Canada has ordered 37 million syringes for use with the COVID-19 vaccine, this is enough for the entire population of both countries. Are they expecting everyone will volunteer? Seems like a waste of tax money to have so many go unused – unless that isn’t the intention.

It’s quite clear that a growing amount of people all over the world are becoming much more hesitant about vaccine safety. This is evident by the fact that vaccination rates are dropping, and have dropped over the past few years. Vaccine hesitancy is also growing among scientists and doctors, as outlined at the end of last year at the World Health Organization’s conference on vaccine safety.

At the conference, Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project pointed out  that, “The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines.”

She has also published multiple studies outlining this fact. One study published in the journal EbioMedicine outlines this point, also explaining that a lack of trust in pharmaceutical companies and the medical industry has resulted in the questioning of vaccine safety by more and more physicians, who, in some countries, do not recommend certain vaccines due to this hesitancy.

Now enter the COVID-19 vaccine, given the already existing hesitancy, it’s natural to think many are going to be hesitant about a rushed vaccine. There are going to be a lot of people who don’t want to take it, or at least believe that freedom of choice should always remain.

Some people compare mandatory vaccination with medical tyranny, and every single year the issue continues to get bigger and even more controversial. The fact that the new coronavirus vaccine may use a completely new technology that’s never been used seems to be quite concerning as well.

At the end of the day, one cannot deny the fact that the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) as paid out nearly four billion dollars to families of children who have been injured by vaccines, and that only accounts for 1 percent of vaccine injuries because the majority of them go unreported. Vaccines are not safe and effective for everyone, and there seems to be a large minority of people who are being “left in the rain without an umbrella.” This is why those who advocate for informed consent are doing just that, there are even multiple organizations that support this, like the Physicians For Informed Consent, for example as well as the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Vaccine injuries are a lack of safety testing is why a large amount of people don’t support mandatory vaccination measures.

A recent poll in Canada determined that approximately 30 percent of Canadians that were polled are in support of freedom of choice, and 70 percent believe the coronavirus should be mandatory. I wouldn’t be surprised if the same people who believe the vaccine should be mandatory also support mandatory mask wearing.

Despite the results of the poll, in Canada, it doesn’t seem that the vaccine will become mandatory. It doesn’t seem this way in other countries as well from what I’ve looked into, like the United States and the UK but I may be wrong. That being said, they may not make it mandatory but it might become a requirement to fly, or to do groceries, or go to school. There will be a tremendous amount of backlash if this vaccine is required for everybody, because it’s quite clear not everybody will comply. In the United States with a population of approximately 300 million, even if 20 percent refused to take it, that is a very large number.

One thing is for certain, if it is required for anything there will no doubt be a big lash from the citizenry, will this backlash be ignored by governments like vaccine questioning is now?

The Takeaway

How much longer can we rely on federal health regulatory agencies and the WHO for information and truth? With the politicization of science being a big problem, and an enormous amount of corruption being exposed within these agencies, why do we continue to hang on every word they say and follow their instructions without question? Why is information that contradicts the WHO, no matter how credible, being deleted? Why do we choose to allow ourselves to be governed by people who don’t have our best interests at hand?

At the end of the day, we as a collective can come together and change the game anytime we want, just as we came together for the Covid-19 lockdown.
