Hemp Support Needed
Our motto: Sustainability starts locally… and with you! Our company fully supports an increasingly sustainable, renewable local, de-centralized economy and feels that through the numerous applications of the industrial hemp plant we may achieve this goal of economic revitalization. Please support local hemp legislation and a return to America’s roots – industrial hemp farming practices. It’s good for the environment (sequesters carbon, provides nutrients back to our depleted soils) and good for the economy by creating farming and ancillary production jobs. Cannabidiol, or CBD is a constituent of the hemp plant that has shown significant health and wellness benefits – CBD promotes and supports the dietary and nutritional health of aging bodies (US Government patent # 6,630,507).
All About Hemp
Industrial hemp seed is extremely nutritious, perhaps one of the top plants in terms of meeting human (and animal) nutrition. Hemp based products contain significant amounts of properly balanced essential fatty acids, both Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils. These essential fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the body – they must come from dietary sources. Studies have shown benefits for cardio-vascular health with a proper balance of these EFA’s. Resource: http://www.drbronner.com/pdf/hempnutrition.pdf plus NIH studies: http://ods.od.nih.gov/news/conferences/w6w3_abstracts.html.
Hemp also contains all the amino acids, including all the essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. These essential amino acids, like the EFA’s cannot be synthesized - they MUST come from dietary sources. Key minerals, vitamins and enzymes are also present. Hemp is considered a complete food source – one could live off a diet of just natural hemp seed for a long time http://www.drbronner.com/pdf/hempnutrition.pdf .
Beyond the amazing nutritional benefits, certain types of hemp contain significant quantities of cannabidiol (CBD). One cannabinoid in particular has received significant attention recently: Cannabidiol (CBD) – to the point where the US Government actually holds a patent on the therapeutic usage of CBD. US Patent # 6,630,507.
The Truth about CBD.
If just a small percentage of what some research doctors and scientists are saying about Cannabinoids and the particular cannabinoid known as Cannabidiol (CBD) is true, we may potentially have an amazing a scientific breakthrough. Cannabidiol, when extracted from the industrial hemp plant has shown extraordinary health and wellness benefits. http://csglobe.com/high-on-health-cannabinoids-in-the-food-supply/ .
The US based National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health has a highly positive reference on CBD on their website. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/healthprofessional/page4
Although there is little knowledge / public awareness of the benefits of CBD, this is rapidly changing. Cannabidiol, CBD, if derived from industrial hemp stalk or seed is a legal product within the United States.
