In the Summer of 2003, Louis P. Burns aka Lugh from Upstate Renegade Productions was invited to film at an undisclosed medical cannabis / marijuana farm in the U.K. Our host, who wishes to remain known as Vel due to current British legislation, took us step by step through the growing stages of medical marijuana, from cutting shed to fully mature plants ready for harvesting.

Like Vel, Lugh lives with physical disabilities that limit his mobility and cause him constant and severe pain. He was inspired to produce the HEALING HERBS film in defense of disabled people's right to alleviate their discomfort
with marijuana shortly after watching a video recorded episode of the; Mark Thomas Comedy Product entitled; The Genetically Modified Mark Thomas Comedy Product (Vera Productions, 1998). This show gave an opportunity for disabled people who used medical marijuana to confront the then Home Secretary, Jack Straw.

HEALING HERBS also focuses on cannabis / marijuana growing techniques for good yields. It includes guidance on; best lights, natural predators and tips on how to combat these + the right soil and water PH levels. The film also lists and emphasises lots of medical conditions that benefit greatly from regular use of medical marijuana. Illnesses like; AIDS Related Conditions (ARC), Arthritis, Chronic Lower Back Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis and many more along with short descriptions of how marijuana benefits each...

Due to the nature of online films, we can edit in more conditions that benefit from using medical marijuana on a regular basis, as and when they come to light.

Also because of this an opportunity exists for 8 sponsors to have their business logo's displayed in the end rolling credits in return for a reasonable donation towards new equipment and our maintainance / running costs. We will keep you updated on this and include any sponsor's names and their logo's to this production when they become known to us.

The film's run-time is 18.10 minutes and contains mellow and trippy sample Jazz by friends of Iain Ronald; Deadly Science (Douglas Barclay and Joe Shakespeare).

healing herbs

'just building a spliff' he said
and he turned away briefly
deft fingers knowing their way

he was back in seconds
to chat breathe relax
be himself once again
without the pain of his spine leg hip shoulders mind
free to be with me just for a while
to smile, have a laugh, tell me tales
about cats neighbours gangsters glasgow
carstairs carruthers and knitting
a scarf
for a sheep

'just building a spliff'
he said one last time
when the pain
returned

now it's gone
so sleep
rest in peace
dearest friend
