THE 411 ON HEMP IN THE NEWS
The most common complaint that we hear about CBD oil is the taste of the sublingual drops. While some actually like what is typically an “earthy” taste, others find the taste unbearable. Luckily there are some things you can do to mask the taste of CBD oil. The purpose of this article is to summarize some of the ideas that we’ve heard from others in the CBD Oil Users Group on Facebook.
Hemp seeds have a mild, nutty flavor. Hemp milk is made from hulled hemp seeds, water, and sweetener. Hemp oil has a strong "grassy" flavor. Hemp is commonly confused with marijuana. It belongs to the same family, but the two plants are very different. Marijuana is grown to contain high amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical that is responsible for its psychoactive properties. Hemp describes the edible plant seeds and only contains a trace amount of THC. This feature is part of a collection of articles on the health benefits of popular foods. It provides a nutritional breakdown of hemp and an in-depth look at its possible health benefits, how to incorporate more hemp into your diet and any potential health risks of consuming hemp.
Imagine a plant that cuts cholesterol, reduces our exposure to toxins, can ease joint inflammation, proves more durable than concrete, and can provide the economy with much-needed jobs for farmers and manufacturers. This wonder of the world exists – it’s hemp. But it is illegal to grow in America. Hemp and marijuana both are cannabis plants – in fact, both are cannabis sativa. Hemp, however, contains virtually no THC (the psychoactive ingredient in pot), so smoking it will not get you stoned. Yet industrial hemp has endured 80 years of purgatory and prohibition at the hands of the government.
The Romans have been using it since the days of Julius Caesar, but not to get high. Both Washington and Jefferson grew it. Now that several states have legalized the use of marijuana for some recreational and medical purposes, one of the biggest untapped markets for the cannabis plant itself — at least one variety — could be as a building tool. The most sustainable building material isn’t concrete or steel — it’s fast-growing hemp. Hemp structures date to Roman times. A hemp mortar bridge was constructed back in the 6th century, when France was still Gaul.
CBD is creating a lot of confusion, isn’t it? Every day, I’m seeing more and more questions like “What is CBD?” “Can CBD help me?” and “What kind of CBD should I purchase?” It’s the last one, that is the focus of this article today. In your search for CBD, you may have come across the terms “full spectrum” and “isolate”, and you probably have questions about what that means. Great eye, by the way, because it is extremely important that you know the difference and make the right purchase . .. so what’s the difference?
Medical researchers have confirmed what some desperate parents have been claiming for years—that a nonpsychoactive component of marijuana known as cannabidiol (CBD) can reduce epileptic seizures in some children.
Over the last year, I have been working on a new documentary called "Weed." The title "Weed" may sound cavalier, but the content is not. I traveled around the world to interview medical leaders, experts, growers and patients. I spoke candidly to them, asking tough questions. What I found was stunning.
As a new or experienced marijuana grower you may be wondering, are books on growing weed like The Cannabis Grow Bible helpful? Are they worth the cost when so much information can be found online? It is true that there are detailed guides on growing great weed in online articles and videos, but there is something about holding a book in your hands that still feels so much more significant. Books take a ton of time and effort to write, design, edit and publish, so they are often much more well researched and better thought out than online posts. Books also tend to be written by true experts in the cannabis industry, with decades of experience to share.
