Yeah it's odd. Up until 2014 farming hemp in the US was illegal. So if you wanted to buy hemp protein, or a really cool hemp hacky sack for your next Phish concert, you had to buy them from companies in Canada. Now I guess we have 13 states that are allowing industrial/commercial hemp production which is cool because you can do just about anything with it including build houses. We can thank William Randolph Hurst and his lumber empire for derailing hemp for nearly 80 years.
Keep me (us) informed on your research and if you decide to pull the trigger on some CBD oil.
I watched the union as part of my research... holy crap, we've all been lied to. I was never a big fan of pot, but the benefits of cannabinoids is almost undeniable. They're so ingrained into our dna that there's a whole system inside the body that needs them to function properly. And once you know about that it's easy to understand why so many kids these days are messed up and medicated. Too much information... I would encourage anyone to do just a little bit of looking into it.
So I'm full on board. Hemp hearts have been a part of my daily diet for a few weeks. Too many health benefits to ignore. Do I feel the difference? I don't know. Only thing I can say is that it's boosted my magnesium intake and I sleep like a rock. Everybody could use a bit more magnesium.
I made my own oil using cannabidiol isolate (0% thc) and mct oil. 500mg in 50ml, and I've been experimenting with 4-5 drops morning and evening. Could be another reason I sleep like a rock. Still have a few more experimenting to do with coming off anxiety meds. Have to admit that in my research I found that the vanilla bean has a lot of health benefits too, so I infused the mct oil with vanilla beans.
I've also tried a 55mg (less than 0.3% thc) hard candy one evening. Noticeably more relaxed very quickly. Stretching was deeper and less forced. Very little resistance. A very subtle calm. Supposedly a pretty good hangover cure, which I'll be testing out on Sunday...

Practice the basics as if they were advanced. That's the key to advancing
