Learn the TRUTH about Hemp and Medical Marijuana.
Get the TRUTH about Hemp and Medical Marijuana. Don't fall for the ridiculous hype from the corrupt government in Washington. They have a vested interest in keeping lifesaving drugs (cheap and almost free) from the marketplace. Between the drug, clothing, pharmaceutical and others, preventing the commercial production of Hemp and CBD demonstrates the massive corruption in government and the linkage (corrupt ownership) between Congress and vested interests (corporations).
Florida Amendment #2 to Legalize Medical Marijuana WON BIG.
That is a great boon to those who’s options for traditional treatment have failed or who simply want symptomatic relief from pain and suffering from many diseases. Further, this opens up the option to create CBD oil (Phoenix Tears) instead of smoking marijuana; an often more concentrated curative form of treatment that provides no debilitating mental effects. Let us hope the regulation/distribution is fair for all!
Now let us work to legalize the sale of medical marijuana at the federal level to enable those selling the product to safely use the US Banking system to deposit sales and conduct business.
The DEA turns its back on freedom; refuses to reschedule cannabis, claims it’s worse than METH.
The blatant corruption in the Federal Government is a disgrace. Hopefully, a Donald Trump Presidency will bring some common sense to Washington. The Reason the Feds are against marijuana is that is interferes with the massive graft and kickback system from major healthcare industry powers and the nasty pharmaceuticals. They make Billion$ while Treating You to DEATH.
We have been lied to for decades!
We have and continue to be LIED TO by the Federal Government. Now with a New President in Donald Trump, we may be able to reverse decades of corrupt and misguided legislation. Hemp has been illegal for decades, NOT because it is really bad for you but because the Federal Government owes big agriculture (cotton industry and others) and the massive Pharmaceutical industry for graft/bribes. Suppression of an entire and profitable/beneficial industry by the Federal Government. Marijuana has long been proven to help cancer and aids patients and for this reason has been legal in some states for medical uses. This is only the TIP of the iceberg as HEMP is a dramatically productive and beneficial crop for uses in fiber (clothing), oil (lubricating and medical uses) and even as a source for alternative fuels.
How is hemp different than marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are two different varieties of Cannabis Sativa., a flowering herb indigenous to many parts of the world. “ Marijuana” is cultivated for high levels of THC, which is concentrated mostly in the flowers and trichomes of the plant. Industrial hemp is cultivated for its fiber, and has almost undetectable levels of THC and comparatively higher levels of CBD. Hemp has been grown and cultivated worldwide for thousands of years for industrial and medical purposes, making useful items like rope, clothing, sails, pa- per, and thousands of other products. Hemp will not make you “high” and, in fact, hemp contains almost every dietary essential we can’t make ourselves.
The industrial hemp plant, although it contains little, if any, THC, has fallen victim to its close resemblance to marijuana. Other than a brief period of time during World War II, hemp has not been grown in the US since the 1930s —with the exception of a USDA field grown in 1994 in Imperial Valley, California. This USDA-grown field was the product of the hard work of Christopher (Chris) Boucher. While permits to grow hemp are technically available from the US government, and certain states have passed laws allowing hemp to be grown as an agricultural commodity, no permit to grow hemp has ever been issued by the DEA.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. This amazing non-psychoactive cannabis compound has been shown, in clinical settings, to:
• Help relieve seizures
• Have strong antioxidant properties • Reduce infammation
• Stop or reverse cell damage
• Ease anxiety and lower blood pressure • Induce cell death in certain cancers
In fact, thousands of peer-reviewed studies indicate that CBD possesses almost unbelievable clinical potential.
Even though it seems like cannabidiol (CBD) is something new, it has been used by humans since the dawn of civilization. CBD is a natural constituent of cannabis, a plant that has been
utilized for centuries as medicine. But CBD itself was only identified in the 1930s and 1940's, and its specific chemical structure was not documented until 1963. The research didn't’t end there; many scientists now consider CBD to be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
You may hear more about THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) in the news—it’s the cannabinoid that gets you “high”—yet non-psychoactive CBD is the real cannabinoid superstar. CBD is overwhelmingly responsible for most of the health and wellness benefits of the cannabis plant. And new benefits are being discovered all the time! As you read through this packet, you’ll learn about CBD, your endo- cannabinoid system, and you’ll see a tiny sample of the cannabidiol research that’s been conducted and continues to be pursued worldwide.
