Bocannaco Info Call in Spanish  (at Dr. Lawrence's request!  He'll be First Guest!)

Friday, April 27, 2018

Sooner rather than later!

Interesting article below from the ACS website; albeit a bit out of date and definitely not current with CBD information, nonetheless it is definitive regarding the cannabis sativa plant having a palliative effect on cancer.  That is why it is referenced here.

It was on my mind because of a conversation yesterday with a lady on the other side of the US.  Her husband is the friend of a Bocannaco distributor and he encouraged her to call me regarding CBD oil.

Her husband was diagnosed last September with Stage 4 aggressive cancers that had metastasized to several places in his body.  His doctors prescribed chemo, radiation, and the whole arsenal, but would not predict an encouraging outcome, so he and his wife  refused to go that route, choosing instead to pursue alternative medicines and treatments that would not be so hard on his body.  

I could not jot down all the things that they have tried to date, and didn't understand what they are currently trying, but marijuana (THC heavy) is part of his regimen.  She said he hates the stoned feeling, plus he has recently begun having pain where he didn't have pain before.  She described the paste he is using as 'like  tar'.

Did I recommend doc's 1500mg CBD oil?  


Will it help?  

            We can only wait and see.  Two things we know:

it can't hurt

it won't interfere with what he is currently doing.

As the ACS mentions on its website, much more research in this area is needed.  To which we add:  Sooner rather than later!


Marijuana and Cancer (Source:

Marijuana is the name given to the dried buds and leaves of varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant, which can grow wild in warm and tropical climates throughout the world and be cultivated commercially. It goes by many names, including pot, grass, cannabis, weed, hemp, hash, marihuana, ganja, and dozens of others.
Marijuana has been used in herbal remedies for centuries. Scientists have identified many biologically active components in marijuana. These are called cannabinoids. The two best studied components are the chemicals delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (often referred to as THC), and cannabidiol (CBD). Other cannabinoids are being studied.


Different compounds in marijuana have different actions in the human body. For example, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) seems to cause the "high" reported by marijuana users, and also can help relieve pain and nausea, reduce inflammation, and can act as an antioxidant. Cannabidiol (CBD) can help treat seizures, can reduce anxiety and paranoia, and can counteract the "high" caused by THC.
Different cultivars (strains or types) and even different crops of marijuana plants can have varying amounts of these and other active compounds. This means that marijuana can have different effects based on the strain used.

How can marijuana affect symptoms of cancer?

A number of small studies of smoked marijuana found that it can be helpful in treating nausea and vomiting from cancer chemotherapy.
A few studies have found that inhaled (smoked or vaporized) marijuana can be helpful treatment of neuropathic pain (pain caused by damaged nerves).
Studies have long shown that people who took marijuana extracts in clinical trials tended to need less pain medicine.
More recently, scientists reported that THC and other cannabinoids such as CBD slow growth and/or cause death in certain types of cancer cells growing in lab dishes. Some animal studies also suggest certain cannabinoids may slow growth and reduce spread of some forms of cancer.
There have been some early clinical trials of cannabinoids in treating cancer in humans and more studies are planned. While the studies so far have shown that cannabinoids can be safe in treating cancer, they do not show that they help control or cure the disease.
Relying on marijuana alone as treatment while avoiding or delaying conventional medical care for cancer may have serious health consequences.

What does the American Cancer Society say about the use of marijuana in people with cancer?

The American Cancer Society supports the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids for cancer patients, and recognizes the need for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the often debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatment. The Society also believes that the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance by the US Drug Enforcement Administration imposes numerous conditions on researchers and deters scientific study of cannabinoids. Federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study on marijuana.

Bee happy, Bocannaco!

Note from a new Bocannaco Founders Bonus Pool Member:

"Great call tonight.  Good stories and looking forward to more.  This is an excellent product.
It’s been very effective for my brother who had a stroke a couple of years ago.  I watched a special on cannabis the miracle cure.  ... A lot of really good stories and I have asthma which benefits from the anti inflammatory nature of the plant.  

I’m super excited about this venture because it is something that I believe in.

I’m looking forward to meeting you and Mike and the rest of the team!

People who are familiar with Doc's formula have only good things to say about it; and that makes me smile.  Because if there's one thing we know for sure it is that people will do for love what they will not do for money.
And when you find something that works for you, that delivers what it promises (in this case, 1000 mg. CBD/bottle), you want to share it with people you love and care about.   Notice the note above:  the first person Malia mentions is her brother; herself secondarily.
When you have a product that brings relief to your loved ones, everything about the plan by which we market the product just happens naturally.
 Which brings up the next point:

We often get asked why we believe in marketing through a network concept.  
Let me tell you my story:  my husband Mike and I owned  health clubs and I was in charge of sales.  I spent thousands of dollars on print, radio and tv ads; only to find that most of those dollars were wasted.  The most effective ad campaigns I ever did were such things as mountain bike giveaways to the member who brought in the most guests in a month.
After we sold our clubs, I attended a business presentation for a telephone company that was competing with ATT, MCI and Sprint by using a network marketing pay plan.  I watched as the comp plan was explained and was struck by the sheer brilliance:  that company would pay me to get customers for it, and overrides if I would get others to get customers for it.   

I sat there and said to myself:  "This guy is not paying an advertising dime to anyone until he is brought customers!  If I had done that in the health club business we'd have been HUGE."

And so began our nwm experience.  

For a new company to bring a new product to the marketplace effectively, there is no better format than through a compensation plan where what is (essentially) an advertising budget is structured into paying interested distributors for what is (essentially) their word-of-mouth advertising.

And the super-great thing about Bocannaco is that those distributors can participate in residual income as their happy personal customers  and the happy customers of their team re-order  and re-order and share with new customers and love the new products that doc invents and order those, and Bocannaco just hums along like a bee hive!

Since meeting Dr. Lawrence ...

Great call last night:  many thanks to Distributors and Bocannaco Founders Bonus Pool Members Conrad Zamora and Casey Slonkowsky for sharing last night.  In case you missed it, click the link to listen in or share:


Did you see this headline:

Panel recommends FDA approval of epilepsy drug Epidiolex derived from marijuana

(Here are the paragraphs of note:)

Evelyn Nussenbaum, the mother of a child with epilepsy, told the panel that she had tried to buy CBD from retailers, but that when she had it tested, she found out that many of them had lower concentrations of CBD than on the label, and some had none at all.
The Drug Enforcement Administration continues to classify marijuana as a Schedule I drug, meaning it has no proven medical value and a high risk of abuse. If Epidiolex is approved, the DEA will then have to reschedule cannabidiol — given that FDA approval demonstrates a medical value — but can leave cannabis overall at Schedule 1.


Since meeting Dr. Lawrence   we have learned that there is often a big difference between what a label says and what's really inside.  We have also learned the value of interpreting what labels say!  

That is a big reason the weekly calls feature people eager to share what they have found with doc's oil.  Of course everyone is different and we are not a drug, pharmaceutical, or medical company:  we don't diagnose or prescribe.

However, Bocannaco is 

NOT addictive
NOT overdosable (you cannot overdose on it -- you would just be wasting it)
NOT psychoactive (ZERO THC; drug test safe);

therefore, if you

HAVE a troubling issue that you can't find relief for
HAVE tried everything you can find to no avail
HAVE just about given up on traditional remedies

then you should try a bottle of Bocannaco and see if it helps you or not.

That's what it boils down to:  Give our real, honest CBD oil a try and see what your story is.   


By the way, Casey shared the story of a school teacher who had used another cbd oil for a joint condition and who subsequently failed a drug test.  Casey said that the fact that Bocannaco has ZERO THC and therefore poses no drug test danger is one of the first and foremost things that he shares with people.

All the buzz is about hemp

Busy, busy week!   Welcome to all the new Founders and Distributors -- things are really moving.

Monday night's Bocannaco Call will feature updates from the week and growth forecast.  :)


Most of you have been keeping up with Kathleen and her brother Michael and his incredible improvement with doc's oil.  Mike filmed a short video interview with Kathleen and Michael....we are not going to post this to social media or website (thank an attorney)... but if you'd like the clip emailed to you, text Mike.


Today was the FIRST DAY that Mike went to the mailbox and retrieved envelopes of Founders and Distributors!  It is so exciting!


If you want to be first in your state better hurry:  we got a call today from a sweet lady who tracked us down from Texas.  She had heard someone discussing Bocannaco (they were not interested in being part of it but were just mentioning the existence of this new company) -- well, she was interested and she took it upon herself to look us up!

Guess what:  as Mike was sharing with her the story of how we got involved with  Dr. Lawrence she stopped him.

"Is that Dr. Lawrence in Torrance, CA?"


She starts screaming -- turns out she used to call on Doc when she was a pharmaceutical rep in CA!  What a small world.  She sounds awesome -- and she was worried that she was 'too late' to be a Founder. 

There's still a little room -- but it's filling daily.

By the way, she said that in the pharmaceutical industry, all the buzz is about hemp and hemp products.


Had our weekly update call with David and Dr. and Doc said  four people had called him  this morning wanting to be a Founder.

Will fill you in on more info on Monday.

Memorable Spring

Face of the Future

Yesterday Bocannaco Distributor and Founders Bonus Pool Member Jeff Verdugo came down from the mountains bearing an envelope of paperwork and checks of his starting Bocannaco Team!

Jeff Verdugo, Bocannaco Leader

He'll be back Friday with another envelope.  Jeff has a back injury and his first bottle of Bocannaco oil brought such relief that he is in full 'let's share this with everybody!' mode.


The new Bocannaco Opportunity video by David and Anthony is a big hit!

Feedback has been plentiful and it's all "Thanks!" and Thumbs up!

If you did not get the link and password, text whoever gave you this website and they will be happy to share.


Spring is shaping up to be memorable for many things.  But we believe that 2018  will be a standout year for one thing:   bringing Dr. Lawrence's incredible work ethic, scientific prowess and inventive  formulations within the reach of ordinary people, through the vehicle of Bocannaco.

If you haven't tried it yet, just wait till you get your hands on a bottle.  Then you'll see why Bocannaco.

Have a blessed day!

The first Bocannaco Founder Bonus Pool Member and First Distributor !!

Great call last night.  Dr. Lawrence was a big hit with everyone and so glad that a bunch of you got to hear from him direct about why Bocannaco is the 'real deal'.

The first Bocannaco Founder Bonus Pool Member and First Distributor submitted their paperwork this morning:  Welcome on board Warren and Kathleen Pannett!  

Warren and Kathleen Pannett, Bocannaco Founder/Distributors

The beginning is now and what an exciting endeavor to be part of!


David sent a link just now to the Bocannaco Opportunity video:   it is Awesome!  It should post for you to view and share with others shortly.  David's videos are an incredibly helpful tool to help you market your business quickly and powerfully.  At only 6 minutes long, anybody can make time to give it a look.


One of the bumps we have dealt with involved not using the term CBD on our website and in materials (don't ask -- political mumbojumbo).  But that has been cleared away by the President and after  time spent  scrubbing those 3 letters from all our documents, we now find it is  ok to use!

I bring this up because if you think we're a bit slow getting all up and running, it is partly due to such hair-splitting as this.  (Sigh.)  But with patience and prayer everything is coming together!  Thanks for  your patience and encouragement -- and prayers!


By the way,  the Incredible and Indefatigable John Lambeth (you've been hearing him on the calls) called today and asked if we had business cards and brochures ready to go.  Mike told him 'No'.  He asked who was working on them.  Mike said 'No one'.  

Well, it turns out John's wife is a graphic designer and volunteered to design a few items and (after approval by the attorney) post the templates so anyone can download and use.  

How generous!  That is typical of the grassroots group effort this project has been from the start.  We are amazed, humbled, and SO GRATEFUL for the sharing of talent you guys bring.  And big hugs to the Lambeths!

Bocannaco Oil Phenomenon

From the Doc:

Functions of the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is perhaps the most crucial biological system involved in creating and maintaining optimum homeostasis in your body. Endocannabinoids and related CB1 and CB2 receptor sites are produced and found nearly everywhere in your body. They are in your brain, tissues, organs, glands, and cells. In each region, your endocannabinoid system performs countless functions with one sole purpose, homeostasis. By consuming cannabidiol (CBD), homeostasis begins to occur in your body at an unprecedented speed on many levels. Fundamentally, CBD provides internal balance for human anatomy despite wildly accelerating changes and stress in your external environment.

One example is relief from inflammation and pain from chronic or acute injury while incurring no tolerance or dependence. CBD minimizes pain and damage caused by an injury. CBD prevents your body from doing too much of a good thing when injured by inhibiting your body’s immune reaction from growing out of control. This is done by inhibiting activators such as histamine and C-reactive protein (CRP), therefore limiting inflammation. At the same time, CBD throttles your nerve cells from excessive synaptic firing, acting as a potent pain reliever.

Another example of homeostasis caused by cannabinoids is its powerful effect on cancer and tumors. Cannabinoids optimize normal cells while hunting down and killing cancer and tumor cells. Malignant cells produce a high amount of a compound that CBD is attracted to. This causes an unhealthy cell to die, leaving only healthy cells and enhancing your body’s homeostasis at a whole new level.

CBD is well researched for its anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-psychotic, and immune system properties. CBD users have lower levels of C-reactive protein which is directly connected to cardiovascular disease and stroke. CBD is known to help with Alzheimer’s, arteriosclerosis, bowel disorders, cirrhosis, depression, diabetes (type 1 and 2), hypertension, metabolic syndrome, nausea, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and much more, all without causing tolerance or dependence.


I think maybe the sentence in orange explains a whole lot about the relief we who have Parkinson's get with the Bocannaco oil!

Did you listen to the call featuring Randy and John?  Probably the orange part explains the phenomena they shared.  (If you missed it, go back one post for the link.)

Excerpt from international interview with Professor David Nutt. He is a psychiatrist and neuropsychopharmacologist at the Imperial College in London, a world renowned researcher on drugs and drug harms, author and driver behind DrugScience, among other things.  Source:

Professor, how far have we come from the 1961 UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs – Especially concerning Cannabis research?

Well, we haven’t come far enough. We’ve been seriously held back by the ’61 convention, which essentially denied medical value and therefore put great roadblocks in the way of people studying this plant. We’ve missed some huge opportunities over the last 50 odd years.

Some countries have fought back – The Dutch and the Spanish, and the Americans now.

But still, the research opportunities lost have been vast. Where we’ve come to is at least restoring some of the areas of knowledge we had before the 1940’s, when Medical Cannabis was truly outlawed in the States. It had value – so we’re slowly putting it back where it needs to be, in terms of pain control and spasticity, tension, anxiety and sleep disorders. We still have a long way to go.

What do you think of the World Health Organisations’ critical review document? Are you involved in the Expert Committee?

No. We submitted a paper to the WHO expert committee before last Christmas, which gave them the background and authority to demand a review. It was decided by the WHO lawyers (Incorrectly I believe) that they couldn’t add it to the agenda. However, they have asked the WHO to ensure that there is a proper preview of the original (edit – The original document from which they formulated their ’61 stance) in anticipation of the next expert committee meeting in 2018. You’re never sure if they’ll actually do it. The WHO have been asked this on three occasions in the past four years and they’ve never bothered.

What’s your opinion on International Cannabis Policy?
Our international cannabis policy seems to be, thankfully, slowly collapsing. The American prohibition style control seems to be waning, now they have Cannabis being liberalised in their own country.

There was an interesting comment made in the final document at the last UNGASS meeting – That they encourage local innovation and research projects to see whether there are better strategies than just prohibition. I actually think that it’s the beginning of turning the corner. I think the future, at least for most sane countries, looks promising.
