The truth about CBD and HEMP

Hemp, Cannabis sativa, has been called the world’s most versatile plant. Materials made from hemp fiber have been discovered in tombs dating back to 7000 B.C. During the Middle Ages hemp was used to treat fevers, insomnia, and malaria. Columbus’s ships had sails of hemp, and during colonial times it was universally grown because its strong fibers made superior ropes, sails, cloth, and paper. In fact, hemp was used for money in most of the Americas from 1631 until the early 1800s, and the original drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written on hemp paper.

As a food, the oil from hemp seeds has the highest percentage of essential fatty acids and the lowest percentage of saturated fats. Britain and Canada have recently lifted bans on growing industrial hemp and today it is reappearing in the marketplace in an amazing array of products: from lip-salve, jeans, salad oil, and cheese to paper products, composite fiberboard, and biomass fuel.

    Heavy on the Marijuana light on the Hemp I should have paid more attention to the reviews here. This book is mostly about marijuana, and not so much about Industrial Hemp. I was expecting the exact opposite. Also, the guide is not very thorough. A book ten times this size could be written on just growing hemp. While it may cover a wide range of topics, it does not go into any great depth. Maybe I just knew to much already about Hemp, and simply couldn’t learn anything new from this volume…It reads like an…

    Setting the records straight – Through my 20’s & 30’s I was “on the wagon” from marijuana ‘cuz I was doing the church thing. It was the only thing I really regretted having to give up. I didn’t miss cigarettes and alcohol was a good thing to learn to live without. I’ve always felt like marijuana is a tremendous gift from God. When my physicians prescribed narcotics for my chronic pain I decided it was time to try using my old friend, MaryJane, for relief. First thing I did was read everything I could get my hands on about…
