NectarBall presents “Cannabis the Story” – an Educational Docu-Series

It’s the most surreal time in the existence of humans as so much seems to be hitting the fan here on Earth. Covid-19, Climate Change aka Global Warming, wildfires, floods, droughts, tornados, hurricanes, political mayhem, and the list goes on. If these are not all indicators of an Endocannabinoid Deficiency in Mankind, I don’t know what is. What better time to celebrate the finest plant known to Mankind, Cannabis.

Cannabis the Story – Sizzler Reel

Our educational series, “Cannabis the Story,” has been under way since 2016, as our team has traveled around the world collecting interviews with such Cannabis luminaries as Ed Rosenthal, Mila Jansen, Tim Blake, Steve DeAngelo and Tommy Chong. Some have sadly now passed, handing the torch to a younger generation of Cannabis activists, including Frenchy Cannoli and Doede de Jong.

In these amazing segments, we focus on History, The “Marihuana” Prohibition, Cannabis the Medicinal Plant, Cannabis vs. Opioids, Cannabis vs. Alcohol, What Cannabis Means to Us, Cultivation, Cannabis in Other Countries (Holland, Argentina, Uruguay), Regulations Faced by Today’s Farmers, and Future Scenarios requiring Activism if we are to create a Canna-centric society which is a much happier place to be.

Cannabis is a Medicinal Plant

Most Americans now understand the medicinal benefits of Cannabis.  As Steve DeAngelo so eloquently put it, “Cannabis is a plant that can guide us to the kinds of thinking that we are going to need going forward.”

Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, Elisabeth Mack, RN and the One-Minute Cannabist, Nurse Heather Manus, Ken Sobel and Casey O’Neill explain the medicinal qualities of Cannabis

Cannabis Helps Alleviate Suffering From Cancer

Around five years ago, three of our friends learned they had brain tumors. Two of them decided to explore the efficacy and medicinal benefits of Cannabis in their fight against cancer. Today, those two fellows are still out there playing soccer and enjoying life with their families. Steve decided to trust his doctor implicitly and wanted nothing to do with Cannabis. He stubbornly held on to his belief that his doctor knew everything. Most doctors don’t even realize we have an Endocannabinoid System. They don’t understand the role Cannabis plays in human anatomy.

Steve didn’t make it.

“Let It Grow” For the Love of the Rastaman, a music video by Three Peace. We collaborated with this talented Reggae band from Michigan before, on a peace music video called “Gone Away.” It was fun to reconnect and collaborate once more, on a music video for The Plant.

Master of Hashish, French Cannoli, RIP

Some of the Cannabis luminaries we have interviewed have already passed on. Such is the case with one of the most loving and playful people we met along the way, Frenchy Cannoli. We created this short film in his honor:

Master of Hashish, Frenchy Cannoli was one of the most creative and joyful people you could ever meet. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experience with all of us.

The Journey of Discovering the Plant That Belongs To Us

It’s been such a wonderful adventure collecting interviews and B-Roll of Cannabis luminaries along our journey which began in December 2016 at The Emerald Cup. It continued through the cities of Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, Barcelona and San Diego. This is a behind-the-scenes glimpse of “Cannabis the Story.”
