The angel Rafael is mentioned in the Book of Enoch, and was one of four primary angels mentioned by post Babylonian exile Jews in some writings. The angel Rafael focused on healing; and Rafael is also the name of a new Israeli cannabis product that can be purchased or dispensed in Israel. It is being used to help epileptic patients without the high caused by other marijuana products. Rafael is based on cannabis grown in the Haifa area greenhouses of Aharon Lutzky’s Tikun Olam, Inc. (Someone said to Lutzky, “Plastics”… but he went into irrigation plastics and watering systems, and now Cannabis production)

It appears that Israel Agriculture might be on the verge of becoming a major medical cannabis producer or exporter.

On Thursday, pot experts will shuffle over to Canna Tech Israel in Yafo. Canna Tech will feature information on cannabis investments that are available in Israel. For example, Syqe Medical sells a measured-dose cannabis inhaler. Yissum, a division of Hebrew University announced a deal with Australia’s PhytoTech Medical to develop oral doses of cannabis. And Canada’s MedReLEAF, Inc. has partnered with Israeli ventures to grow a variety of the weed that is high in CBD and low in THC which can treat the effects of Alzheimer’s and colitis. If you’re not interested in the high of cannabis, then maybe CBD heavy products are the way to go. What is CBD? CBD based products such as thought cloud oil are becoming increasingly popular and are being used for medical and therapeutic purposes. One thing people aren’t too sure about is the time for the drug to start working/ having an effect. If you’re ever unsure on the expected times then you can always have a look online to find out for yourself.

The Israel Ministry of Health has a cannabis unit, which is led by Dr. Michael Dor, chief medical adviser to the Israeli Ministry of Health Medical Cannabis Unit and a former deputy director of the Ministry of Health Medical Administration in charge of its Community Medicine and Hospitals Division. Hey… isn’t Michael the name of any angel, also? Currently 20,000 patients in Israel are registered to use medical cannabis and other established cbd products. You can easily find reviews online if this has been a recommended course of treatment by your doctor. If you’re unsure, be sure to check out reviews like, cbdpure review to gain some greater information and understanding. It is used for skin disorders, asthma, intractable epilepsy, PTSD among military veterans and other victims of trauma, Crohn’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, ALS and other illnesses.

The University of Haifa published a study five months ago that showed that administering synthetic marijuana (cannabinoids) soon after a traumatic event can prevent PTSD-like symptoms in rats. The study – conducted by Nachshon Korem and Irit Akirav of the Department of Psychology at the University of Haifa – was published in Neuropsychopharmacology. Good news for traumatized rats, and maybe for humans. The study stated that the Israel Medical Association reports that approximately nine percent of Israel’s population suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder; and that even more combat soldiers suffer from it.

I wonder if Birthright should have a tour of Israel’s major cannabis producers?
