It didn’t take long after U.S. consumers accepted kale as a superfood for the leafy green to take off. The same thing could easily happen to hemp seeds once more American farmers are allowed to cultivate and sell the crop. For perspective on the potential business opportunity, consider that Canadian farmers exported $45 million worth of hemp seed to the U.S. in 2016, making as much as $300 per acre, per season, farming industrial hemp. That’s five to 10 times as much as what our farmers in the Midwest are currently making for growing GMO wheat, corn and soy.
Yes, with some caveats. CBD and CBDa is legal in most states of the United States as long as it comes along with no more than 0.03% thc. CBD all by itself, is pretty much legal everywhere. However, you could still run into legal problems if you have a cop or court which is hell-bent on charging people with violation of marijuana laws or even laws about where you can buy non-psychoactive hemp. This is rare but has happened on occasion.
Although it’s constantly mistaken for cannabis, and it comes from the same plant, hemp is not the same product. While marijuana is bred to include potent amounts of THC, hemp has only trace amounts—it contains less than 0.3 percent of the hallucinogen. “You could smoke a football field of hemp and you wouldn’t get high, you’d get a headache,” is how Dolgin describes it. Still, when it planted its first seeds, JD Farms had to install an armed guard. (Until they’re planted in the ground, hemp seeds are considered a Schedule I narcotic, according to Dolgin.)
This particular brand is the purest CBD Hemp Oil on the market at the moment. A lot of CBD oils are not as pure and you can get headaches from them. The recommended dosage is 20 drops in the morning, 20 drops in the afternoon. I started out slow at one drop and am continuing to build up with one extra drop with every dose. I am currently up to ten drops per dose, and maintaining for a few days. I went completely off my opioids on day three on the drops. I feel great. I have had no withdrawal symptoms, I have less pain than when on the opioids, I am sleeping better at night (I do take cannabis oil (hash oil) for sleep) but the drops have made my sleep very restful. I really feel terrific!!! :)
