Cannabis is synonymous with impact
THE ARTEMIS FIVE PILLARS OF IMPACT
Compassionate Medical Access
Medical access to cannabis goes beyond compassionate use, and should be a protected right for all patients. Critical for research, therapy, treatment, and end-of-life care.
Solutions to the Opioid Crisis
Current medical research shows cannabis to be an effective tool in the treatment of chemical addiction (opioids, alkaloids, others). Cannabis is non-addictive and impossible for death by overdose.
Cannabis legal jeopardy disproportionately affects people of color. Racial inequality and judicial inequity can be partially addressed through legalization. First steps taken with social equity, reversal of incarcerations, cannabis tax revenue re-direction to disadvantaged communities.
Health and Wellness
Of the 100+ different cannabinoids that have been isolated, only THC is intoxicating while other non-THC cannabinoids, including such compounds as CBD, CBN, CBG, and THC-A, have known positive health benefits. With a nearly perfect balance of omega 3 to omega 6, plus iron, vitamin E, and all of the essential amino acids, hemp seeds are a Superfood.
Cannabis and hemp biomass are soil enhancing crops and sustainable food sources for the world. Sustainable organic agriculture as a industrial mechanism to improve the earth and the communities the earth supports. Applying the regenerative farming principles and practices to cannabis increases biodiversity, enriches soils, drives closed-loop carbon sequestration, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services.
