From the dawn of mankind, man has highly revered and  greatly benefited  from Hemp as a source of nutrition and  medicine.  The greatest physicians  from ancient China, India, Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Greece and Rome have stated that Hemp is an indispensable health treasure beyond compare. Modern science has identified over 400 phyto-nutrients in various parts of the plant from the seeds right through to the roots. These include hundreds of Terpenoids, Essential Oils and Antioxidants but perhaps the most dynamic are a group of 80 compounds called Cannabinoids that are exclusively  found in Hemp and one other place; our bodies. We were designed with a built-in Endo-cannabinoid System (ECS). It is your body’s way of communicating with itself and properly regulating the way every other body system functions  from your brain to your little toe. Like other nutrients in our diet, Cannabinoids can become depleted and in need of regular dietary replenishment. In 4000 years there is no evidence o  anyone dying from consuming any part o  the Hemp plant. Indeed, though Hemp has been persecuted and falsely labelled as harmful, modern scientists and government reports* consistently conclude that Hemp is among the safest and most beneficial things we can and should consume. * US Government Patent #6,630,507 “Cannabinoids as Antioxidants & Neuroprotectants.” Scientific Research and Real Facts about the Cannabinoids in Cannabis>>> Share this:Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click...
