As I said earlier,




Hemp can also produce large amounts of CBD, depending on strain, as well as other minor cannabinoids, terpenes, terpenoids, flavonoids, sterols etc.



These compounds are known to provide medicinal and therapeutic benefits in an isolated form, but when combined, say, through the use of whole-plant extracts, they act in synergy in a process known as the entourage effect to provide far more effective relief.

Does hemp hold the same medicinal or therapeutic value as a high THC profile indica or sativa?

Probably not, depending on your condition, but that doesn't mean that it's not a thing.

I'd provide more links to support my claims, but my laptop charger has finally given up the ghost so I'm stuck on my mobile, which I hate, but if you just search the things I've said it'll soon become clear,

The Cannabis was so sturdy that they made tents and tarps out of it and when the 'traveler' was so pleased He/She took it with them and by the time they got to where they were going it was "canvas"...

There is, or at least 'was' a link ( I originally read it through Google™) of a few scientists in the late 50s and early 60s that had a veh. that ran on "Hemp Oil" and there was something about the way it burned that was helpful to other parts of the motor. They opined that 1 single year of Industrial Hemp grown on 1 acre provided the same 'wood pulp' that trees provided on 10 acres and 10 years. When You figure this out and how Hearst; Cockefeller and the rest of the money grubbers, owned most of the forestry, well....

It also makes real soft clothing, and holds the color better than Cotton™

Canvas is derived from an old Anglo-French term canevas, meaning made from cannabis, or hemp.

While Henry Ford often gets the credit for building and powering a car with hemp, I believe it was Rudolph Diesel who managed to pull it off first, but that's a whole other discussion.

I think the CBD cures different things than THC but I have seen articles discuss a 50-50 mixture. One thing no one talks about anymore is that it is relatively easy to isomerize CBD to THC with acid.

Hemp is easy to grow in the right place.

Here in Wisconsin we were the hemp producers of the world at the turn of the century.
It literally grew like weeds. There are still places it grows like weeds. I actually think the more you fuss over it the
worse it does, it wants to grow naturally.

For example, years ago I tried to grow a European dandelion for salad in an isolated raised bed. It did terribly. We know how well dandelion grows where it shouldn't be! I think the same thing with hemp.

I agree harvesting is a whole other story.

I put Hank Ford in the same $$$ grubbing group as JPMorgan; Cockefeller and the rest.

Maybe that other discussion We could opine what society would've been like had other $$$ grubbers had backed Tesla vs. Edison??

Will there be drinks and food? And if We're going to "Spitball" about Cannabis, shouldn't that be covered and maybe even some Sweetwater IPA G-13s?

hope they ALL get pulled out and our bases get shut down.


I'm not entirely sure why we need 50,000 troops stationed in japan 365 days a year...they are an ally.


Because we provided their primary defense force for decades.
They could probably handle it on their own now, but why bother? We have a good relationship, and you never know when we might need a few thousand guys on the opposite side of the globe. Supply line and front lining would be delayed by days or weeks if we don't maintain an amalgamation of working supply and structure on the other side of the globe.

Not to mention that we're protecting a capital investment. The United States financially backed the current technological boom that Japan is enjoying.
If you want more details, look into the history of Honda, and the surrender terms at the end of World War II.

Well, we have come full circle.

When I was a kid the bailing twine we used was hemp, the burlap bags we used for potatoes were hemp and the seeds I fed my pet birds were hemp seeds.

Sanity and honesty is returning at least in this case

"Sanity" returning

Riiiiiiiiiight. -Dr. Evil face-

That's why hemp was just re-legalized by a guy that likes to grab women standing next to their pet cats.

Wrong.

medium.com...

There is a scientific difference between marijuana and hemp. It’s the THC content. While they are both members of the Cannabinoid family, they are two markedly different plants.

I wish we had more details about "The Wall" that could be (directly) disclosed (threads like this sort of illustrate).


If a society needs a large, powerful law enforcement establishment, then there is something gravely wrong with that society; it must be subjecting people to severe pressures if so many refuse to follow the rules, or follow them only because forced.


Historically the states have used "black project" funding that did not get voted on to accomplish goals (similar to Trumps wall).

Some of what Trump does is pretty cool. I don't like him because he is corrupt and tries to weasel his way out of being held accountable for his actions, even going so far as to smear the reputation of those investigating him.

Yes, legalization of hemp is a step forward! The FDA even released a statement that appeared as if they were going to go after interstate commerce of weed, but realized that there was a popular demand to legalize it and are going to go soft on the states that have legalized it.

Withdrawing troops is usually a popular move.

But, withdrawing troops from Syria is an interesting situation because it goes against both conservative and liberal ideals at this time. We are trying to fight ISIS - which involves radical Islam - we are also trying to keep Russia from gaining too much territory and the like. Russia is NOT our friend, contrary to what conservatives believe simply because Russia "helped" them win the election in 2016. But Russia, in reality, has the goal of stoking extremism in the country, especially with disinformation, with the goal of dividing our nation and making it weaker, possibly even trying to get us to have a civil war. They are also attempting to not only gain territory but influence in their part of the world.

We are also against Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria, as he has committed atrocities against his people. Should we seriously withdraw our military from situations in cases where it will let atrocities continue and weaken our stance against our enemies like Russia and China?

Trump sure makes it seem like Russia has him on a leash sometimes.

I was against the Iraq war because it was based on the lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, and I am against corruption, lies, and disinformation. It also seemed like the Bush family had ulterior motives for invading Iraq. But right now, we are trying to combat Islamic extremism, atrocity-loving leaders, and keep our military stance against Russia functional. These seem like goals that will help our nation. Russia and China are expanding their influence at a fast rate at the moment, and it is in our nation's best interest to combat this.

Unless you want to have a diplomatic solution, as the United Nations, that keeps people at peace, I would recommend going the military route in this case. I don't think diplomacy will work against Russia, as they are tricksters and manipulators. I don't think diplomacy will work with ISIS, as they are religious extremists and don't listen to reason.

A little bit of pushing countries to take care of themselves and participate in global peacekeeping is a good idea. I read that Trump got in a disagreement with Turkey who was making unreasonable demands, and Trump was like "Fine, if that's the way you want it, handle Syria yourself." It seems like a bad idea to withdraw troops from the region, but I do admit that was a good tactic, calling Turkey's bluff. I'm honestly not sure on many more details than that.

So maybe you want to let other countries handle their own problems, which is a noble goal, but realistically, if we let that happen, we will have to deal with them eventually as enemies who have simply gotten stronger by being left alone.

Look Trump did not have to smear anyone if you follow the facts the whole Russian thing is bull poop used by democrats and their cronies in justice to impede the legal actions of a sitting president . Comey admitted as much last week when he said that he sent the agents to interview flynn with out going thru proper Whitehouse procedure because he was hoping new admin would not know Whitehouse counsel was supposed to be informed ahead of time and ok it and sit in on it.. that right there should have been grounds enough to stop it immediately he'll it should never have been started because there is no physical proof Russia did anything it has been accused of because dnc refused to turn over their servers.. get back to topic at hand I think it's great but I really wish he would go ahead and legalise all of it and tax it like tobacco and liquor with similar age restrictions and use while driving restrictions. It would totally kill a big part of drug trade because a lot of people get turned on harder stuff by dealers spiking their weed with harsher drugs. The stuff kids smoke today is stuff 30 years ago we would not touch because we knew if it was wet and tacky it had been tampered with.
yes I freely admit when I was 10 I started smoking Mary Jane and quickly got sent off to Siberia I mean Wisconsin. Where the only thing I was burning was wood to keep warm.

To be fair it does nothing for stoners........

I think he needs to legalize both........theres so much revenue and jobs in both areas it would be another economic revolution for the states.......

At a federal level though, I dont think they ever will, theres too many streams of revenue for those at the top, and certain gov entities to ever legalize it across the board......
Although it is my opinion they are being short sighted and dont realize just HOW MUCH money we could be making GDP with it.

It's the other properties where hemp is concerned that are of greater interest than just getting high.

1000s of different use for the stuff really, quite literally.
