CBD Review

About the recent DEA ruling:
I picked up this response to the ridiculous DEA reclassification of CBD as a schedule one drug: Everyone can relax.. There seems to be a lot of confusion as the the legalities of the new DEA ruling on hemp derived products. However, the Hemp Industries Association (HIA), has put out a statement on this and it is clear that our industry is safe from this ruling, etc.

Many people are aware of the amazing properties of hemp for sustainable living. Industrial hemp was once free to grow and in fact, during a certain time in our nation's early history, farmers were required to grow it. Our forefathers grew hemp. Then, it became a threat to those who make their living felling trees. A ridiculous but effective propaganda campaign called "reefer madness" made people afraid to even look at the multitude of uses for hemp besides getting high.

I'm watching "Disjointed" right now, the show with Kathy Bates as a pot activist who is dealing with the complexities of offering marjiuana to the public. It's a good show to watch for more awareness of just how convoluted government policy still is on this issue. It's one of the most ironic commentaries to note that recreational marijuana is legal in our nation's capitol and that the government has several medical patents pending for this awesome plant product at the very same time that it is still illegal on a federal level and the FDA is claiming it has no medical properties.

Some people confused cannabidiol with thc. The THC part of the plant is what causes alteration. CBD oil, or cannabidiol is another part of the plant and does not cause alteration. CBD is is now getting tremendous interest as a health supplement. Repeat, this does NOT get you high. It cannot because it has almost none of the high-producing THC. However, our body has natural receptor sites that belong to CBD and when it is present, our health gets a marvelous boost!

Because CBD is not a drug, it is legal in all 50 US states and most countries. However, not all CBD products are created equally and you'll see a WIDE range of both quality and cost. Recently, the FDA started testing some CBD products to find they hardly contained any of this healing substance. I looked for lab tested and also CBD that was extracted without harmful solvents or chemicals. In addition, Check source. If hemp is not domestically grown, ask questions because imported is often not made from whole plant.

Health Disclaimer: CBD oil from hemp is not suggested as replacement for any needed medical evaluation, testing or treatment you may also need. Please note that I can only recommend lab-tested CBD because of the proliferation of toxic pesticides that may be present in untested industrial hemp.
