THE HISTORY OF HEMP

Hemp is becoming a very popular plant these days.  Not too long ago it was actually illegal to grow.  Here, let me explain:  Hemp is a varietal of the Cannabis Sativa plant.  This plant, like bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet.  Hemp was considered so important that it was listed as one of the five essential plants in The Vedas (an ancient text).  So important, that it was a form of legal tender in early North American settlements.  In fact, Henry Ford’s first Model T was built to run on hemp gasoline as well as being constructed of the product.  Not only was hemp used to make shelters, sails and food…it was also used in making medicines.

Hemp was listed in the United States Pharmacopeia in 1850.  Its uses were listed as aiding with everything from hysteria to tetanus.  Many forms of hemp were found in OTC products until 1937.  Our ancestors didn’t have our technology back then so they couldn’t differentiate between hemp and marijuana…which finally caused the government to intervene, marking 1938 as being the year that hemp was outlawed.

LAW BREAKERS AND LAW MAKERS

Behind the scenes many researchers were still studying the plants abilities and pressure was focused on the governmnet to look at changing the laws.  Finally between 1994 and 1998 researchers proved that hemp and marijuana could be categorized seperately making hemp products legal again.  Finally the first license in Canada was issued to grow commercial industrial hemp once more.

CBD oil comes from harvesting the whole plant, whereas hemp oil is found by pressing the seeds only.  Both products have strong nutritional values such as Omega 3 and 6 oils, antioxidants, gamma linolenic acid and vitamins B and D.  It’s at this point that the two products begin to differ.  Hemp seed oil is great for heart health, eczema, lupus and arthritis to name a few, where CBD oil helps these as well as much more.

Research suggests that CBD oil derived from hemp may aid with sleep, anxiety and pain.  It’s now used for epilepsy, depression, inflammatory skin conditions and neurodegenerative conditions.
