My blog is dedicated to the exploration of industrial hemp in America including the rich history of all forms of cannabis, the evolving law and politics of hemp and marijuana, the many products made from cannabis and the capacity, real or imagined, of hemp to re-industrialize rural America and revitalize the American family farm.

4 Effortless Ways Hemp Can Lead To A Healthier Life
How many pills do you take throughout the day? Nearly 60 percent of Americans are taking some sort of prescription drug that is most often riddled with harmful side effects. Many more people have medicine cabinets stuffed full of vitamins and modern-day snake oils that do nothing but change the color of their urine. What if there was an inexpensive product that you could use each day to improve your wellbeing? Hemp products can make you healthier in innumerable ways. Here are just four:
FIGHT BLOOD CLOTS AND BAD CHOLESTEROL LEVELS
If you suffer from high cholesterol, you should consider getting into the regular habit of taking hemp seed oil or hemp seed. Research shows that these products can help break down cholesterol while fighting the blood clots that usually occur due to high cholesterol levels.
GET THE RIGHT BALANCE OF OMEGA-3 AND OMEGA-6 FATTY ACIDS
While trans fats and saturated fat are generally considered bad for you, essential fatty acids, such as Omega-3 and Omega-6, are not only good for you, but they have been shown to help with arthritis, cholesterol, depression, heart disease, and more. However, too much Omega-6 without the right amount of Omega-3 can be harmful, causing disease and inflammation. Fortunately, hemp seed oil has nearly a perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, so you can enjoy the health benefits of these fats without the risks.
REPLACE YOUR MASSIVE COLLECTION OF VITAMINS
Vitamin E is found in abundance in hemp seeds. Additionally, hemp seed is a great source of minerals like iron, sulfur, sodium, phosphorus, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The benefits do not stop there. The human body cannot make eight essential amino acids at all and two others are not available in sufficient quantities. All of these essential amino acids are found in hemp seeds, which is thus considered a superfood. And, with seventeen grams of fiber per serving, hemp seeds are a smart way to sneak fiber into your diet as well.
TREAT EVERYTHING FROM PAIN TO ACNE
CBD hemp oil is a natural oil produced by extraction from the hemp plant. It has a broad array of uses. Here are just a few:
Natural Pain Killer – The response CBD causes in the brain is similar to that of opioids, only without the habit-forming properties
Acne – When used topically, CBD hemp oil inhibits lipid synthesis, preventing the development of acne
Insomnia – CBD oil is the non-habit-forming, natural way to treat insomnia
