Why Did This Woman Turn To CBD For Lupus & Fibromyalgia

Sadly, we live in a world where if you do good things, there are no financial rewards. If you poison the earth, there is a fortune to be made. For health advocates, environmentalists and people who are on a mission to empower themselves through knowledge and nature, the journey is never easy.

She shares her financial struggles after the launch of her company, her more recent battle with Lupus and Fibromyalgia as well as her fight to help others heal through the use of organic CBD oil.

Interview Highlights

JS: You are facing some serious health issues. Can you talk about your health and your journey to wellness?

MH: Ironically, after making the film (Vanishing of the Bees), I was at an environmental film festival in the Dominican Republic and I was exposed to pesticides. I’ve been exposed to pesticides on not one occasion but three and then was diagnosed with LUPUS and FibroMyalgia. Of course, Western medicine did not acknowledge or offer a chemical body burden as part of what was going on. They had a blank stare, gave me Cymbalta which is an SSRI and some Prednisone which is a steroid, both of which I did NOT take and sent me on my way telling me that my body was attacking itself.


MH: I think believing and knowing that the body is amazing, which I now believe, was also very instrumental in healing myself and believing that I can heal myself. So, Western medicine doesn’t even acknowledge food is thy medicine which is crazy.

JS: That’s because they can’t make money off of it. The bottom line is from everything that we’ve been seeing over the course of the last couple of decades, if there is something we can do that doesn’t require a prescription, it almost seems as though industry (pharmaceutical) will say no, you really don’t want to do that.  They will say, eat a healthy diet but they don’t want you to do things holistically. They want you to still be dependent upon the drugs that they manufacture because that is how they stay in business.

MH: Absolutely! The pharmaceutical industries are making billions of dollars. I now, first hand, felt what it is like to be taken down or attempts to be taken down, for selling a compound.

I have spoken to and continue to speak to so many people that are suffering and have found relief from our CBD oil. I tell people that everyone and their mama is making CBD oil now. There are certain things they have to look for.  For instance, the CBD oil will degrade 80-90% in the liver. So, if you seeing Kombucha with CBD, that’s just marketing BS. It’s not accurate. You have to take it liposomally or rectally in order for it to get into the blood stream.

It is also important to know that cannabis is a bioremedial plant. What does that mean? It means that it pulls toxins from the earth. They literally used cannabis to clean the soil in Chernobyl of radiation. That shows how powerful it is. So, whether you are sick or not sick, you do not want to be imbibing cannabis that’s not organic. There are so many things to look for.

CBD is a miracle plant compound


Like I said, the attacks that we’ve undergone, the series of unfortunate events that you cannot say “it’s the system”. You cannot say who exactly is doing it but it’s the overall system.

On one hand, the government has patented cannabinoids and recognized its antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-flammatory healing abilities. Then on the other hand, they have put CBD for marijuana extracts up there with LSD and heroin as a Schedule 1 drug, stating that it has no medicinal properties. Right there, just making that statement shows the hypocrisy, the greed.

What is occurring is that FDA is in bed with Big Pharma. The main company bringing their fake faux CBD is GW Pharma and they are partnered with, guess who? Bayer! What are the chances?
