Benefits and the Differences to CBD oil
|155 forum posts|
Rather than hijack Rick Charity's post here goes my views.
My good Lady Wife suffers form chronic athritis in both hips and has finding great relief from pain and is more mobile after taking Hemp Oil.
This has extremely low amount of CBD's with no halucenogenic effects or withdrawal symptons.
We are constantly questioned by friends who do not know the differences between Hemp and Cannabis. They are not alone even Richard Nixon the president of the USA did not know the differences.
Hoping to inform and educate from this post and not offend. Sure the Interweb is loaded with loads of opinions true and totally biased on this subject

Who will independently judge the validity of the proof?

|49 forum posts||Sorry...hemp IS cannabis,they are all part of the Cannabaceae family (Like onions and garlic all being different but still all types of allium)|
Cannabis used for narcotics are chosen for their higher potential to produce THC and are cross bred to increase this trait further...resulting in unnaturally high levels of THC. Hemp has been developed in the same way, just with an effort to reduce the amount of THC, and increase the growth rate and internodal length for longer fibres.
I don't believe its "evil" in anyway in any form.

Strange, as I suspect there are several other crops that could meet that claim (such as the rare crop known as 'trees' - and yes, properly managed forests are the best cure for deforestation). I strongly suspect the enthusiasm for all the 'miracle properties' of hemp is a trojan horse and irrelevant to very valid arguments about its medicinal properties.
Incidentally, Henry VIII may have required the growing of hemp to produce ropes and fibres, but he subsequently had to introduce one of the first anti-pollution laws to control the unpleasant consequences of hemp processing so it is hardly 'pollution free'.
But I don't want this forum to home a debate on the pros and cons of what still remains a controlled drug in the UK; the medicinal properties of CBD are different.

Although I don't think Cannabis is pure evil, there is surely cause for concern? If a mind-altering chemical is available, some people will abuse it. Perhaps a lot of people. We already have two legal drugs and both have seriously bad side-effects:
If the negatives of drug taking only effected individuals, I wouldn't mind much. But alcoholics and drunks are a menace to us all, while smokers waste family money and then emotionally torture their loved ones by becoming seriously ill.
So I'm not keen to add a third source of trouble.
I may be a bit biased. Near where I worked in the 70's a toddler died after slipping upstairs and drinking the lodgers Methadone. Mum and dad had mellowed out with a joint and weren't paying attention...
Even though it can and does cause psychosis I don't believe Cannabis in it's original form to be particularly harmful. Not so Skunk and other high-yield varieties which are in a different league.
Legalising safer varieties would solve a lot of problems though and I think medical prescription of Cannabis components that don't cause a high should certainly be allowed. If some magic could be performed, I would willingly make Cannabis legal in exchange for a total ban on Alcohol and Tobacco. As it is, we're stuck with them.
And if Cannabis makes you feel better (it does), you really ought to try Crack Cocaine. It's truly fantastic!
PS When making deals with the devil don't forget to read the small print.

I'll lock this thread; this isn't the right forum to debate drug laws.
