Don’t Touch my Beer! The Relationship Between Hops and Hemp

By Kathy Garton

With all of the government involvement in keeping Cannabaceae (plants in the hemp family) out of the hands of U.S. citizens, you would think that Humulus lupulus L., more commonly known as Hops, would be included in the legalities of the Cannabis ban.
Hops is the closest relative to hemp and the two can be cross-graphed very well. However, unlike hemp, hops can cause an altered state and is a very old form of natural medicine. Today, hops is most commonly used for its calming effect on the nervous system, being prescribed for nervous tension, anxiety, irritability and spasms, and for its excellent and potent sedative effects. Hops is used to induce better sleeping patterns, and hops extract is being used as an ingredient in many sedative medicines, and also as an ingredient in cough syrups.
Hemp does not contain the same high-profile medicinal values as hops or marijuana. Hemp only contains about 4% CBD and lacks many of the medicinal terpenes and flavonoids that are found in marijuana. Hemp also has a very low percentage of THC. In comparison, hops contain dimethylvinyl carbinol, used to treat anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia.
Hops (Humulus lupulus) is uncontrolled in the United States. This means all parts of the plant and its extracts are legal to cultivate, buy, possess, and distribute (sell, trade or give) without a license or prescription. If sold as a supplement, sales must conform to U.S. supplement laws. If sold for consumption as a food or drug, sales are regulated by the FDA.
The only conclusion that seems apparent is that hops, a main ingredient in beer, is not a subject to be investigated. Wouldn’t it be great if hemp and marijuana received the same merit?


  1. A great testimony I must share to all cancer patients in the world. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in
    March 2013. The doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering his lower lobe and also had
    spread to his lymph nodes. We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain. Ed hated the morphine which
    made him vomit and also affected his mind. After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, rely on
    ourselves.We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain. The cancer had blocked his bile duct, after that we choose a
    Naturopath doctor and have not had conventional treatments. one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer
    and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email :(phoenixtears47@gmail.com) to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it. After taking a gram
    of oil per day. Within a couple of weeks his pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of
    life. We never saw an ocologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. His tumor marker went from over
    6000 to normal and he is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but enjoy every day and give thanks. As i am
    writing this post, my husband is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently. For
    immediate assistance on every medical issue you and your family may be experiencing, contact Dr Rick via email: (phoenixtears47@gmail.com) for more information and the delivery process.
