My love of hemp seep is a new love, but what a love I think is going to be a long lasting one, due to many reasons.
Hemp Seeds are Delicious.
One of the great thing about hemp seeds are they make an awesome snack anytime of the day. They are not only light, crunchy, and packed full of great nutritional, but make a great simple snack. These Amazing little seeds make not just a great simple snack easy to eat on your own without having to cook or anything else, but are also great to use in complex dishes as well. My favorite is hemp seeds poured on fruit covered in completely all natural peanut butter, and honey.
Hemp Seeds Are Nutritional Powerhouses.
Hemp seeds aren’t just a great snack because their delicious, but because they’re great for you too. Hemp seeds are considered a super food, high in protein, high in fiber, easily digestible, and full of healthy fats, it’s really hard to go wrong with hemp seeds. Their balance of oils and proteins make them a perfect snack anytime of the day. Hemp seeds are also high in magnesium, a mineral that helps with relaxation, blood sugar control, blood pressure, and potentially osteoporosis.
Hemp Seeds Are Great For Vegans and Vegetarians
While not a vegan or vegetarian myself I believe that our current diet consists of way too much meat and meat products. As many will tell you too many meat and dairy products can cause cancer, especially colon cancer. It’s known that limiting your intake decreases cancer risks and helps optimize your health. Eating a primarily plant based diet helps maintain healthy weight, helps alleviate high blood pressure, decreases inflammation, and decreases the likelihood of getting age related conditions and diseases. Because Hemp seeds are high in protein and a complete protein, their a great staple food for vegans and vegetarians, or for cyclic dieting.
Hemp Seeds Are Great For The Environment.
Hemp seeds are also great for the environment. This is not due to the seeds themselves, but because they support the development of hemp itself. Hemp has thousands of uses at a fraction of the environmental costs of current uses. Hemp can be sustainable grown fast, and dependably in ideal environments. You’ll commonly see hemp shirts, lotions, paper, and variety of other consumer products. Hemp is more eco-friendly then cutting down trees, growing cotton, and growing many other industrial plants. By supporting the growth of hemp your supporting the growth of a plant that is preserving our environment, helping cut down carbon emissions, and helping rebuild communities around the world .
With cannabis being used medicinally, for recreational use, and within the textile industry around the world, our generation is beginning to realize what our predecessors realized before us; cannabis can be used for just about anything!
Hemp Seeds an Awesome Food!
One amazing attribute to Hemp seeds is that their packed with protein! With the same ratio of protein per gram as many meats. It is literally one of the best known protein packed seeds there is, perfect for athletes, health gurus, vegans, vegetarians, and dieters.
Hemp seed like many other plant based foods are easily digestible and can ease stomach inflammation caused by over consumption of meat and dairy products. If hemp seed became a staple food, and was supplemented with other high protein plant based foods we would be able to decrease our reliance on livestock. This would also decrease occurrences of a variety of cancers and other illnesses related to over consumption of animal byproducts .
Hemp seed is in fact one of the very few vegan foods that contains all the essential amino acids and fatty acids for human life. That’s right hemp seed is a complete protein which makes it extremely advantageous to other non meat proteins.
Positive Effects of Using Hemp Protein!
If you’re a athlete you may seriously want to look into hemp seeds. With 10g of protein for every 30 grams or ~ 2 tablespoons it will help achieve a high protein profile without persistent over consumption of meat products. This helps speed recovery, reduce fatigue, and could help decrease bloating, and gas, that can be caused from high consumption of meat, and dairy.
Hormonal Benefits of Hemp Seeds.
Another benefit of hemp seeds is they do not contain phytoestrogens. This makes it a better protein for many vegans and vegetarians in comparison to soy, legumes, or flax seed due to it’s low estrogenic activity. This can cause a decrease in estrogen based cancers specifically breast cancer, and ovarian cancer. Due to the lignans in hemp it may also help alleviate hormonal problems, and with proper exercise and diet may help establish proper hormonal cycles.
Hemp seeds are truly a nutritional powerhouse, and if you haven’t already placed them into your diet you may want to consider doing so. Hemp seeds have the ability to transform your health and help replace harmful foods that are harvested through environmentally unfriendly means , and that negatively impact your health. Hemp seeds are also often GMO free, and more sustainable than many other crops.
Maybe when the whole world get’s it’s head out of it’s ass. It’s very clearly less damaging then most legal drugs, has soo many uses in industry it’s retarded, and is even a super food.
But of course since we can get “high” on it, it’s considered a danger too society. The danger is that it will challenge the status quo. It’s not like the whole world isn’t getting high right now anyway. I mean shit almost every single comedy we put out there’s someone smoking a blunt, or hitting a bowl. Everyone raised in this generation pretty much want’s it legal look at 99% of all forums and posts about marijuana, it’s a bunch of people talking about how they want it legal and then one right wing conservative bitching about how it will destroy the fabric of our society.
Well thanks bitch tits for bringing the rest of us down even though you don’t have one logical leg to fucking stand on. It doesn’t matter that your dumbass is addicted to lexapro, zoloft, wellbutrin, xanax, and hydrocodone and, whatever nacrotic cocktail you shove down your throat, you can’t stand anyone being happy in a different way then your dumbass.
It clearly doesn’t matter to people that the justice system uses cannabis to fuck everyone over by giving them grossly over priced tickets, making them go through probation, and pretty much just fucking them in the ass with fines all god damn day.
And O of course it doesn’t make any sense legalizing it even though it creates jobs, makes safer products, can help us clean the environment, keeps people out of prisons, helps generate new income for education, and renewable energy transportations.
I mean for real though it’s are own fault as a world for being little fucking assholes. The same reason that cannabis isn’t legal, is the same reason that Africa is starving and fucking dying from ebola. It’s cause were all little shits sucking at the power tit, and don’t do a fucking thing for no one unless we think were going to get something out of it.
If you want to discuss your cannabis trip reports go, when it’s going to be legal, or just random shit about cannabis go to this group if not Idgaf gfoad(Go fuck of and die!)
It’s clear that many people in the United States and many other nations want cannabis to be legalized for medicinal and recreational use. Although there are some undesirable effects of cannabis use; when compared to many legal substances in the U.S. such as Alcohol or Tobacco, it is relatively harmless.
Cannabis is also one of the oldest known medicinal plants in the world dating back thousands of years into the Ayurvedic literature. Hemp seeds are nutritionally exemplary providing protein and beneficial omega fats into one’s diet. Eating Cannabis raw has also shown to decrease heart disease risk, and various other illnesses.
Cannabis use has also shown to help provide pain relief as well as a decrease occurrences of seizures in epileptics, help decrease nausea, help insomnia, and many other benefits.
This has been extremely helpful for many individuals that are injured or have serious medical conditions such as Cancer, Aids, Epilepsy, Insomnia, Arthritis, and many other minor and chronic conditions.
So why would the Government want to stop the production and criminalize the possession of such a beneficial plant? Even though society has already proven its health benefits and variety of uses in industry settings.
It’s all about the money, thats truly what its about. Could you imagine what would happen if Cannabis became legal tomorrow? Think about how many people would lose their jobs.
Lets take a look at the criminal nature of Cannabis.
Most arrests made in the United States are for drug offenses, with over half being related to the possession, sale, cultivation, or trafficking of Cannabis.
For the Executive and Judicial branches of our government this is BIG money.
Some of those who acquire money from these restrictions in this billion dollar industury are Judges, Lawyers, Police Officers, Probation Officers, Drug Dealers and Support Groups on both sides of the legalization of Cannabis.
So if Cannabis was legalized nationwide imagine how many of these individuals woud lose their jobs without a safety net. And how many more people will be out on the streets and not in Prisons looking for jobs.
How many of these individuals would turn to a life of crime, due to their incapacity to find a job? It’s easy to imagine many of them relying on violent crimes, larceny, fraud, and the transportation, production, and sale of harder drugs just to get by.
This in turn would create a endless cycle of hiring and firing of law personel.
This is just one of the reasons why the legalization of Cannabis is taking so long, because our government is not ready to cope ecspecially with our failing financial system.
However many states have done a very good job migrating these effects by only legalizing it for medical use creating new revenue streams for doctors. All while using high taxes to fund new developmental programs for education, health care, agriculture, and renewable energy resource development.
Along with all these benefits the production of medical and recreational Cannabis in itself creates new jobs. Many investors have already jumped at the chance to support the production of Cannabis. In addition organizations such as Grow houses and Cannabis Clubs have sprouted all over the country, creating jobs for growers and sales associates. Even the Government has gotten into it by increasing the need for permits for the development of the infrastructure of Cannabis Clubs and Cultivation Centers.
Now that we’ve taken a look into how the legalization of Cannabis will effect the executive branch let’s take a look at how it will effect industry. It is well known that hemp has thousands of uses in industry.
This has been known for thousands of years and even helped build the infrastructure of many countries. Even in the beginning of America in 1619, The Virginia Company by decree of King James I, required every colonist to grow 100 plants specifically for export.
However the ability to produce Cannabis became very prohibitive in the United States after the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 was enacted. This act however has come under much scrutiny in recent years due to the fact that major supporters of the Act had major holdings in the Timber industry, which may have been threatened by the recent invention of the “decorticator”.
The decorticator allowed the ability to easily extract the fibers from Hemp plants which made Cannabis a viable alternative to timber for the creation of paper, rope, and many other textile products. Popular Mechanics in their February 1938 issue even praised Hemp as the new billion dollar crop that would change industry forever due to the decorticator.
However at the same time many propagandist, racist, yellow journalistic papers and movies were produced that claimed Cannabis made people go crazy, likely to go insane on a killing rampage. Many of these articles and movies have been shown to have been funded by people of interest in corporate holdings of timber and nylon, and new government organizations that focused on earning revenue from criminalizing the production of Cannabis and other substances. While many of these articles and films such as Refer Madness focused on white suburban teens that were once notable citizens going crazy. Many others focused on slandering African Americans, Asian Americans, Mexican Americans implying that they were the major users of the drug and under it’s influence were likely to kill and rape white women.
So how does this relate to today.
Besides much of the propaganda that were taught and reinforced through our life, paper and many textiles are still currently made from Timber. The production and manufacturing of Timber is not only more costly to the environment, but also requires more labor, and is significantly more dangerous.
Hemp also is vastly more versatile when creating clothing as well. Being highly more efficent then producing cotton. This will not only help the environment, but it will help decrease labor, and improve our ability to clothe the world. This will free up land to be used for agricultural needs which can help us feed the starving people of the world.
Hemp has the ability to be turned into cleaning products, food products, construction products. We have hemp seed oil, hemp shampoo, hemp moisturizer, and many other fascinating products. Hemp has so many uses in so many industries and because it is a weed it is one of the most simple, easiest, and fastest plants to grow. Yet all these great things make it “Dangerous to the Status Quo”.
By allowing citizens to grow it, many textile industries will go bankrupt. And of course don’t forget about the pharmaceutical industries; think about all the people that will not have to buy prescription medicines anymore, but instead can grow a plant for pennies on the dollar. So many industries will lose their way of life.
This will decrease stock prices of many Corporations. The same Corporations that are able to afford the lobbying for high end government officials.
Once again many will lose their jobs and citizens will be more capable of producing their own products closer to home.
While many speculative markets will go through a complete revolution and a few stock brokers may lose money, the real ones that will suffer are CEOs.
It’s easy to see the many disadvantages of legalizing cannabis from a certain perspective.
Many current industries will fail, the production of many products will stop. Many people including cops, lawyers, judges, marketers, CEO’s, financial advisers, manufacturing laborers, and countless others will lose their jobs.
Yet lets take a look at the advantages.
Third World countries will be attacked less by governments, and be more capable of producing their own foods and products. Less lifes will be wasted in Prison. Less money will be stolen from friendly productive citizens. Less men and women will be placing their lifes in danger over a failing drug war. We’ll completely destroy giant criminal rings that exponge money from our society.
Well have a product capable of producing thousands of textile products, with a fraction of cost in labor and to the environment. Well have a medicine with less side effects that’s also safer to develop then the many that are being produced.
When more people start growing Cannabis at home, they will be more capable to grow their own food. Decreasing the stress on our agricultural systems, and providing better nutrition for people around the world.
All this together will mean less work for everyone, safer work environments, a cleaner environment, longer lifes.
So we might lose some jobs, but doesn’t that mean less work for our society? Wouldn’t this allow us more time with our family and friends, and more time for education?
While our government is standing the way, “We the People” are the ones that control government.
So if we really want this plant to be legal, arent we the ones responsible to make it so?
So I ask you to ask yourself one question “Whose really standing in the way?”.
Cannabis is one of the most widely used narcotics of the world. It’s use can be traced back to ancient times, it was most often used as medicine and to achieve trance like states for meditation. Cannabis legalization has been recently spreading throughout the modern world. Many areas that have legalized cannabis have experienced great advances in their infrastructure, noting decreases in crime rates, a decrease for need in law enforcement, lower prison populations, decreased expenditures in the judiciary systems, and an increase of economic stability.
The legalization of cannabis has become a international debate ever sense the beginning of it’s prohibition. Used as a public enemy by the Nixon administration to sway votes for his second term, and to increase funding for the development of various government organizations; it’s prohibition has wrecked havoc on the communities of the world. Because of it’s illegality many underground criminal groups have been established, wasting billions of tax payer dollars on the so called drug war, and destroying and ending the life’s of many innocent individuals.
This prohibition only increases violence and decreases awareness of the true effects of the drug further increasing its dangerous use. Due to its lack of availability it is extremely over priced which causes most users to consume it in it’s most dangerous form “smoking”, although it can be easily used in less dangerous forms such as oils, hash, various edibles, and smoked through vaporizers.
