Health Benefits of Drinking Hemp Tea- Colorado Hemp Tea is the Healthier Beverage Choice!

                  Colorado Hemp Tea benefits 


Hemp leaves have a similar phenolic profile as green tea plus elemental nutrients such as magnesium and iron. Hemp Tea also contains useful CBN and CBD, a non-psychoactive Cannabinoid, which are also present in cannabis.

Tea is an ancient drink originating... in Asia. Most alternative foods and medicines are not immediately accepted by the medical community as being valid, and there has been debate regarding the benefits of their uses. Hemp tea has not escaped this alternative stigma, but many others swear by its ability to improve digestion, lower blood pressure and increase energy. Additionally, hemp tea has been linked to weight loss, blood sugar control and the lowering of cholesterol. Results have been known to vary from individual to individual, adding to the complicated debate between believers and skeptics.

Teas have been used for thousands of years for medicinal and social purposes, originating in the eastern hemisphere and gaining popularity in the west. Although disputes over the benefits of teas will likely continue until conclusive evidence presents itself, few tea enthusiasts would argue that a hot cup of tea is an enjoyable way to bring people together and ease the mind. Hemp tea is a unique form of this traditional beverage, but when consumed with ingredients that make it personally enjoyable, it can a great social medium to bring people together in a natural and healthy way. Order Today!!!

Colorado Hemp Tea has that subtle smokey flavor that makes you go Ummmm!!!

The Effects of Marijuana on the Body Marijuana comes from the Cannabis plant

The Effects of Marijuana on the Body Marijuana comes from the Cannabis plant. The flowers, seeds, leaves, and stems of the plant must be shredded and dried before they can be used. Most people who use marijuana smoke it, but it can be mixed into food, brewed into tea, or even used in a vaporizer. One of the ingredients in marijuana is a mind-altering chemical called delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). When you inhale marijuana smoke into your lungs, it is quickly released into your bloodstream on its way to your brain and other organs. It takes a little longer to be absorbed when you eat or drink it.
        The effects of marijuana on the body are immediate. Longer-term effects may depend on how you take it, how much you take, and how often you use it. Since its use has long been illegal in the United States, large-scale studies have been difficult to manage. In recent years, the medicinal properties of marijuana are gaining acceptance in mainstream America. Medical marijuana is now legal in 23 states and the District of Columbia. THC and another ingredient called cannabidol (CBD) are the main substances of therapeutic interest. National Institutes of Health-funded research into the possible medicinal uses of THC and CBD is ongoing. In addition to medicinal use, recent legislation has made marijuana a legal recreational drug in Colorado and Washington State. With the potential for increased recreational use, knowing the effects that marijuana can have on your body is as important as ever. Like tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke contains a mixture of toxic chemicals and carcinogens that can irritate your lungs in the short term and potentially lead to long-term problems. Read more.

With the potential for increased recreational use, knowing the effects that marijuana can have on your body is as important as ever.
   Respiratory System Much like tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke is made up of a variety of toxic chemicals that can irritate your bronchial passages and lungs. If you’re a regular smoker, you’re more likely to wheeze, cough, and produce phlegm. You’re also at increased risk of bronchitis and lung infections. Marijuana may aggravate existing respiratory illnesses like asthma and cystic fibrosis. Marijuana smoke contains carcinogens. It has the potential to elevate your risk of developing lung cancer. However, studies on the subject have had mixed results. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), there is no conclusive evidence that marijuana smoke causes lung cancer. More research is needed.
   Circulatory System THC moves from your lungs into your bloodstream and throughout your body. Within minutes, your heart rate may increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute, according to the NIDA. That rapid heartbeat can continue for up to three hours. For people with heart disease, this faster heartbeat could raise the risk of heart attack. One of the telltale signs of recent marijuana use is bloodshot eyes. They look red because marijuana causes blood vessels in the eyes to expand or dilate. Marijuana may help stop the growth of blood vessels that feed cancerous tumors.
   Central Nervous System When you inhale marijuana smoke into your lungs, it doesn’t take long for THC to enter your bloodstream. From there, it is quickly transported to your brain and the rest of your organs. When you get marijuana from food or drink, it is absorbed a little more slowly. THC triggers your brain to release large amounts of dopamine, a naturally occurring “feel good” chemical. That’s what gives you a pleasant “high.” It may heighten your sensory perception, as well as your perception of time. In the hippocampus, THC changes the way you process information, so your judgment may be impaired. It may also be difficult to form new memories when you’re high. Changes also take place in the cerebellum and basal ganglia, upsetting your balance, coordination, and reflex response. All those changes mean that it’s not safe to drive. Very large doses of marijuana or high concentrations of THC can cause hallucinations or delusions. According to the NIDA, there may be an association between marijuana use and some mental health problems like depression and anxiety, but more research is needed to understand the connection. In people who have schizophrenia, marijuana use can make symptoms worse. When you come down from the high, you may be tired or feel a bit depressed. In some people, marijuana can cause anxiety. About nine percent of marijuana users develop an addiction, according to the NIDA. Symptoms of withdrawal may include irritability, insomnia, and loss of appetite. In young people whose brains are not yet fully developed, marijuana can have a lasting impact on thinking and memory skills. If you use marijuana when pregnant, it can affect the brain of your unborn baby. Your child may be more prone to trouble with memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills. THC can lower pressure in the eyes, which can ease symptoms of glaucoma for a few hours. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, more research is needed to understand the active ingredients in marijuana and whether or not it’s a good treatment for glaucoma. The pharmacologic effect of marijuana extends throughout the central nervous system. It is thought to ease pain and inflammation. It may also be of use in controlling spasms and seizures.
  Digestive System Smoking marijuana can cause stinging or burning in your mouth and throat. When you take oral THC, it is processed in your liver. Marijuana can ease nausea and vomiting. It can also increase appetite, which can be useful to people living with cancer or AIDS.
  Immune System Some research indicates that THC affects the immune system. Studies involving animals showed that THC might damage the immune system, making you more vulnerable to illness. Further research is needed.     Recommended for You - See more at:

Imagine a Home that Pays for Itself, Grows Food for You, Heats and Cools Itself Through Convection, and Supplies You Comfort and Safety.

What is Hemp Adobe?

Hemp Adobe is a Proprietary Mix of  - Hemp Adobe Brick Home Interior View- Family Room of HouseRefractories, Mineral Dust, Natural Fibers, Sand and Water.

The advantage to using this mix is there
is no toxic off-gas from casting the materials into the finished product.  Its primary function is to gather, or sequester carbon dioxide from the environment as a part of the curing process and then forming to a petrified state.
Hemp Adobe can be engineered to any volume of space, and into any shape desired. Hemp Adobe is 60% of the weight of conventional concrete. The strength of this material eliminates the need for rebar reinforcement.
Basalt  is another of Hemp Adobe’s base materials of choices, as spalling or corrosion does not occur, because of the inclusion of basalt.
The Material Mix is highly efficient, a natural insulator, and allows for thermal exchange.

hemp adobe house south viewHemp is a Natural Biocide.

Mold growth, and insects are are negated due to hemp’s innate qualities as it functions as a natural biocide.

The Hemp Adobe Homes team is committed to making a contribution to society and mankind as a whole, our team has devised a new building material that resonates with generations of folk. Hemp, as the times are changing, is now seen as, and always has been known for a superior building material. Adobe has been part of ancient structural design since the building of the pyramids.  The marriage of technologies, utilizing forms created by current composites technologies, brings forward a new concept in building construction. Our design consists of pouring the Hemp Adobe material into molds and precast them in a way that makes the buildings lighter and stronger than conventional stick frame or concrete construction.
Hemp Adobe Homes utilizes full panel construction as a means to ship direct to the building site and a new way to erect whole structures in hours and days, rather than weeks and months.   
Our technique and unique wall design naturally brings the insulation value up to R-80.  The flexibility of our Hemp Adobe Homes and Structures creates the ability to design without limitations of sizes or shapes of the building or structure.
Orthogonal and rectilinear buildings are a thing of the past.  Corners are out!  A home can truly be a work of art. We can build with the environment and harmonize with the surroundings in nature. It’s called Organic Architecture.


Where We Are Going

Hemp Adobe Homes is all about sustainability issues.

We want what is natural to all humans, to have clean air to breathe, to eat organic food, drink clean water and to have a sense of belonging to our families and communities. Hemp Adobe Homes came together with a clear goal in mind. Since we all were very involved in sustainability issues for years, and have colleagues in North America and abroad, it was only natural that we would choose something that we all found of common interest.
hemp adobe house group of six from south
A building material that would be fast in curing and robust on many levels to build structures from, in a way of manufacturing panelized homes to supply the needs of human shelters. To lessen the footprint caused by conventional construction methods and means. To supply within the home an autonomic function of food growing capabilities, which in turn will supply clean air, heating, and cooling by thermal convection. The home then becomes a living structure.

What Is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD)is a non psychoactive component of hemp and cannabis that works as an anti-inflammatory, painkiller, muscle relaxer, anti-cancer, and relaxing agent, without causing the “high” typical of smoked cannabis. It is naturally produced in both hemp and cannabis, but there is typically only a trace amount present. In states where medical cannabis is legal, growers have bred strains that contain a significant amount of CBD along with THC so that patients can take advantage of therapeutic effects. It is only very recently hemp has also been bred to contain a high amount of CBD, but without the psychoactive compound THC. Unlike cannabis, hemp is legal throughout the United States as long as the flowers are not used and there is no THC present. This allows patients in non-medical cannabis states to legally obtain and benefit from CBD by using food grade high CBD hemp extract. Most hemp extracts available for sale only contain trace amounts of CBD. Unless stated otherwise, it should be assumed that these products do not contain a therapeutic amount of CBD. "Cannabinoids” is a blanket term covering a family of complex chemicals (both natural and man-made) that lock on to cannabinoid receptors—protein molecules on the surface of cells. Humans have been using cannabis plants for medicinal and recreational purposes for thousands of years, but cannabinoids themselves were first purified from cannabis plants in the 1940s. The structure of the main active ingredient of cannabis plants—delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—was discovered in the 60s. It wasn’t until the late 1980s that researchers found the first cannabinoid receptor, followed shortly by the discovery that we create cannabinoid-like chemicals within our own bodies, known as endocannabinoids. “We’re all born with a form of cannabis already in our bodies. It’s called the endocannabinoid system (ECS)… Like it or not, each and every one of us is fundamentally wired to respond to cannabis.” We have two different types of cannabinoid receptor, CB1 and CB2, which are found in different locations and do different things. CB1 is mostly found on cells in the nervous system, including certain areas of the brain and the ends of nerves throughout the body, while CB2 receptors are mostly found in cells from the immune system. Because of their location in the brain, it’s thought that CB1 receptors are responsible for the infamous ‘high’ (known as psychoactive effects) resulting from using cannabis. Over the past couple of decades scientists have found that endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors are involved in a vast array of functions in our bodies, including helping to control brain and nerve activity (including memory and pain), energy metabolism, heart function, the immune system and even reproduction. Because of this molecular multitasking, they’re implicated in a huge range of illnesses, from cancer to neurodegenerative diseases. Are supplements safe? Not all herbs and supplements are safe. If you are unsure about the safety of a supplement or herb, talk to your doctor, pharmacist, or dietitian. Always tell your doctor if you are using a dietary supplement or if you are thinking about combining a dietary supplement with your conventional medical treatment. It may not be safe to forgo your conventional medical treatment and rely only on a dietary supplement. This is especially important for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.

When using dietary supplements, keep in mind the following:

•Like conventional medicines, dietary supplements may cause side effects, trigger allergic reactions, or interact with prescription and nonprescription medicines or other supplements you might be taking. A side effect or interaction with another medicine or supplement may make other health conditions worse.

•The way dietary supplements are manufactured may not be standardized. Because of this, how well they work or any side effects they cause may differ among brands or even within different lots of the same brand. The form of supplement that you buy in health food or grocery stores may not be the same as the form used in research.

•Other than for vitamins and minerals, the long-term effects of most dietary supplements are not known.

House Tells DEA To Leave State Hemp Programs Alone!

Derek Cross
WASHINGTON -- House members early Friday blocked the Drug Enforcement Administration from using funds to interfere in state-legal industrial hemp research, a rebuke to the agency less than a month after it seized hemp seeds intended for Kentucky's pilot program.
Two hemp-related amendments to a DEA funding bill introduced by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Rep. Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.) prohibit the Department of Justice, including the DEA, from blocking states' importation of hemp seeds, and from preventing states from implementing laws authorizing industrial hemp activities made legal under this year's federal farm bill.
Massie’s amendment passed 246-162, and Bonamici’s was approved 237-170. The Senate will likely consider its own appropriations bill for the DEA and Justice Department, and the House amendments would have to survive a joint conference before going into effect.
"The DEA has more important things to do than interfere with legal activities at the state level," Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) said. "We need to remove the cloud of uncertainty,"
Massie said Kentucky was forced into a "waste of time and money and the court system's limited resources" during a legal battle with the DEA over its hemp seeds this month. “The DEA is not above Congress, it’s not above the law,” Massie added. “This amendment simply asks the DEA to follow existing laws.”
"Farmers are unable to get the seed they need in order to grow their legal crop," said Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.). "It's really hard to grow industrial hemp, and the DEA without any clear reason, any argument, any sense, throws itself down as a roadblock to success."
But Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Frank Wolf (R-Va.) opposed the hemp seed amendment.
“If you take the DEA out of the process, you’re going to have a situation where this law will be honored in name only and not used for the purpose it is intended, which is research,” Goodlatte said. “You cannot determine the THC limits of cannabis plants simply by looking at them. They need to be examined. The DEA fulfills that role.”
Fifteen states have legalized industrial hemp production, and about two dozen others have introduced legislation that would authorize research, set up a regulatory framework or legalize the growing of industrial hemp.
As Kentucky prepared to launch its hemp-growing project, the DEA seized 250-pound shipment of industrial hemp seeds at the Louisville airport this month. Kentucky sued the DEA for seeds' release and took possession a week later after obtaining a DEA permit.
The DEA action incensed Democratic and Republican lawmakers involved in the new industrial hemp laws, and was condemned by Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
Hemp is the same plant species as marijuana -- cannabis sativa -- but it contains little to no THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana associated with the "high" sensation.
Hemp, sometimes called marijuana's "sober cousin," has a long history in America and has been used in a wide range of household products, including paper, cosmetics and textiles. In the 1700s, American colonial farmers were required by law to grow the plant, and it was used for hundreds of years in the U.S. to make rope and lamp oil.
American hemp production peaked in 1943, with more than 150 million pounds from 146,200 harvested acres. Production dropped to zero in the late-1950s as a result of rising anti-drug sentiment and competition from synthetic fibers. Story from:

Hemp As A Bio-Fuel Is One Step Closer To Reality

RENO, Nev., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Minerals LTD. (OTC PINK: DSCR)  (PINKSHEETS: DSCR) is pleased to provide shareholders with further information regarding the Joint Venture (JV) with Syngar Technologies.  
A research study concluded that Syngar's PLUSWave technology increased ethanol production by an overall average of 26%.  The PLUSWave technology optimized the conversion of cellulose to sugars and enhanced ethanol yield.  The proposed pilot project will utilize Cellunol Inc.'s proprietary technology to reduce costs and speed the pre-treatment of cellulose materials to form a slurry suitable for fermentation into ethanol.
With the worldwide increase in demand for oil, concern over the environmental impact of the use of fossil fuels and the challenge of sourcing a sustainable crop to provide the cellulose needed for Bio-Fuel fermentation, hemp may very well be part of the solution.
Corn based ethanol is the Bio-Fuel most favored by current United States government subsidies for renewable fuels. Hemp is an improvement over corn-based ethanol on several counts: higher soil conservation, nearly non-existent herbicide & pesticide requirements, higher yields, and greater suitability for cellulosic ethanol production, as opposed to either grains or corn. When compared to other plant species of active interest in Bio-Fuel production, hemp derives 100% more cellulose than species under active investigation.  Production costs for corn-based ethanol is nearly twice that of estimated production costs for hemp derived ethanol.  Hemp and its related species provide denser cellulose content than corn, higher sugar content, and derives higher ethanol yields per metric ton at lower costs.
Hemp is found to be a superior cultivar for Bio-Fuel production.  Hemp exhibits far superior ethanol yields per unit biomass compared to corn.  Pretreatment is necessary to alter the cellular structure of the biomass at hand.  Specifically, lignin presents a significant stumbling-block to the fermentation of cellulosic material. Pretreatment procedures are primarily aimed at breaking down lignin.  The challenge of stripping lignin from lignin bound cellulosic plant matter is the primary complexity that must be overcome prior to the direct conversion of cellulose to ethanol. In conclusion, Discovery's JV pilot project intends to overcome these challenges and establish a new industry standard for the pre-treatment process of Hemp in Bio-Fuel production.

Cellular Respiration & Photosynthesis

Cellular Respiration & Photosynthesis

Plant Cell Diagram
Plants use a process of breathing called cellular respiration. It begins with a process called photosynthesis that absorbs sunlight and breathes carbon dioxide (CO2). Plants turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. Plants also create cellulose fibers. by turning glucose into cellulose; that's how plants grow!
Burning hemp releases the same amount of CO2 as it absorbs in its life cycle - closed loop! No fake carboon taxes.
Cellular respiration, also known as 'oxidative metabolism', is one of the key ways a cell gains useful energy. Nutrients commonly used by animal and plant cells in respiration include glucose, amino acids and fatty acids, and a common oxidizing agent (electron acceptor) is molecular oxygen (O2).
Photosynthesis (from the Greek φώτο- [photo-], "light," and σύνθεσις [synthesis], "putting together", "composition") is a process that converts carbon dioxide (CO2 AL GORE) into organic compounds, especially sugars, using the energy from sunlight. Photosynthesis evolved early in the evolutionary history of life, when all forms of life on Earth were microorganisms and the atmosphere had much more carbon dioxide.
2n CO2 + 2n H2O + photons → 2(CH2O)n + n O2 + 2n A

Glucose C6H12O6 (equals 6 water + 6 carbons). Glucose (Glc), a simple sugar (monosaccharide) is an important carbohydrate. Glucose is one of the main products of photosynthesis and starts cellular respiration. "Glucose" comes from the Greek word glukus (γλυκύς), meaning "sweet." The suffix "-ose" denotes a sugar.
Cellulose is an organic compound with the formula (C6H10O5), a polysaccharide consisting of a linear chain of several hundred to over ten thousand β(1→4) linked D-glucose units. Cellulose is the most common organic compound on Earth. About 33% of all plant matter is cellulose (the cellulose content of cotton is 90% and that of wood is 40-50%)
Fiber, also spelled fibre, is a class of materials that are continuous filaments or are in discrete elongated pieces, similar to lengths of thread. They are very important in the biology of both plants and animals, for holding tissues together. Human uses for fibers are diverse. They can be spun into filaments, string or rope, used as a component of composite materials, or matted into sheets to make products such as paper or felt. Fibers are often used in the manufacture of other materials. Synthetic fibers can be produced very cheaply and in large amounts compared to natural fibers, but natural fibers enjoy some benefits, such as comfort, over their man-made counterparts.

Hemp can be that Bio Fuel ~ George Washington Carver and Henry Ford Shared a Bio-fuel Vision

Henry Ford & George Washington Carver 

PHOTO (select to view enlarged photo)
George Washington Carver and Henry Ford shared a vision of a future in which agricultural products would be put to new uses to create products and industries.

Though worlds apart, George Washington Carver and Henry Ford shared a vision of a future in which agricultural products would be put to new uses to create products and industries.
One idea both men worked on more than 60 years ago -- biofuels -- is again in vogue as America seeks to reduce its dependence on foreign oil.
"Henry Ford was ahead of his time on this. He knew he needed fuel for transportation, and if he could develop something that was good for agriculture too, it would be a good match," said Dick Baker, a tech leader at Ford's powertrain, research and advanced engineering department.
"Henry also knew of Carver's work and said 'that's somebody I need to learn more about,' " said Baker.
That was because Carver, born a slave in Missouri during the Civil War, had become a world-famous botanist by the 1930s, famed for his research into the many uses of peanuts, soybeans and other plants. Over the years, Carver promoted the idea that such plants could be turned into plastics, paint, fuel and other products.
Ford was interested in the same things. Besides his legendary work creating plastic car parts derived from soybeans, Ford had long believed that ethanol (or grain alcohol) should be produced as an alternative fuel.
"All the world is waiting for a substitute for gasoline," Ford said in 1916. "The day is not far distant when, for every one of those barrels of gasoline, a barrel of alcohol must be substituted."
During the early days of Prohibition, he even suggested turning Michigan's idled breweries into distilleries to make denatured alcohol for fuel in cars and trucks, noted historian Ford Bryan. That went nowhere since Prohibition doomed the idea of any large-scale switch to alcohol production.
The automaker learned of Carver following his donations to the Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) in Alabama where the botanist was a faculty member, Bryan said.
At Tuskegee, Carver had promoted the use of crop rotation -- planting such nitrogen-rich crops as peanuts, sweet potatoes and soybeans -- to improve farmland depleted by years of raising cotton. In so doing, he also worked on hundreds of new uses for such crops.
Though he's often credited with inventing hundreds of uses for the peanut alone, Carver left few formulas or detailed records, making such claims by admirers hard to verify.
By the late 1930s, Carver and Ford were corresponding on a variety of subjects, including new industrial uses for soybeans and other plants. Ford had also met with Carver in Dearborn and at Ford's estate in Georgia and visited him at Tuskegee.
At first glance, they must have seemed like a strange mix -- the billionaire industrialist from the North and the modest scientist and naturalist from the South. But Ford regarded Carver as a contemporary. Both men had been born on farms during the Civil War and both had sought, in their own ways, to improve the lot of the common man.
After Thomas Edison died, the automaker even called Carver "the greatest of all my inspiring friends." To honor him, Ford also had a replica of Carver's log cabin birthplace built amid the other historic buildings at Greenfield Village in Dearborn. In addition, Ford helped outfit a laboratory for Carver and had an elevator installed in a Tuskegee dormitory so the botanist could get to his lab more easily in his later years.
While certainly forward-thinking, the idea that agriculture could be used to create alternative fuels wasn't totally new with Carver and Ford. The German inventor Rudolph Diesel had created an engine that ran on peanut oil in 1900. But both Carver and Ford believed that petroleum supplies would one day become limited. And both promoted the alternative uses of soybeans, which Ford used to make car parts in the 1930s.
This interest culminated in 1942, when Ford showcased a car with a plastic body made from soybeans. Attached to a tubular frame, the body weighed 30 percent less than a steel car and was much more flexible and durable. The experimental car was also equipped to run on ethanol rather than gasoline but such a novel idea failed to catch on.
By that time, huge new oil fields were being discovered and petroleum had become much more cost-effective than plant-based ethanol, said Baker.
"Agricultural fuels take a fair amount of processing to create, whereas petroleum comes out of the ground and just needs refining," Baker said. "The principles were right for what Ford and Carver were doing in the lab, but they didn't have the tools we do now to go big-time with the idea.
"Now, we're revisiting their old story with new tools, and exciting things are going on in the laboratory again," he said.
More than 60 years later, the ethanol-fueled dreams of Carver and Ford are becoming a reality.

The Use of Hemp Milk to Treat Tuberculosis

By: Arthur Hanks Posted in Articles
In the following clip, Garnet Kranz of Killaloe, Ontario, Canada speaks about his family’s history of hemp milk being used to treat tuberculosis (TB). When his grandmother was a girl, she spent time in South America, where there was a Tuberculosis sanitorium run by priests. At this hospital a hemp milk formula, possibly fermented, and thick enough to be drunk with a straw, was used to treat TB. The exact recipe and clinical usage is unknown.

Hemp Milk and the White Plague

Tuberculosis (TB) is a persistent disease that has dogged human populations throughout history. It was sometimes referred to as Consumption, because sufferers would “waste away” as they were consumed by the illness. Pulmonary tuberculosis, caused by bacteria infecting the lungs, was the most common form. TB was dreaded as “The White Plague” as it used to be the leading source of death in the USA.
One American folk belief centered in New England in the 18th and 19th century links vampirism with TB.1 The bacterial form of the disease would lead to infection of family members, leading some to think a dead relative had returned from the grave and was feeding off their family!
Advances in treatment, vaccinations and strong public health programs helped to diminish TB’s incidence in the 20th century. It’s not on the public’s radar. However, TB is still very common in the developing world, where most of the planet’s population lives poverty markedly increases the risk factor for the disease. And even at home, some disadvantaged groups remain at risk. For example, in Canada, rates of infection are 10 times higher on Native reserves. People with weakened immune systems — the elderly or AIDS/HIV victims — remain quite vulnerable.
An innovative Czech study from the 1930’s, right before World War Two, used hemp seeds in a nutritional therapeutic trial to treat tuberculosis. At a hospital in Jince (south west of Prague), patients (all poor urban youth suffering from TB and aged 6-20) were given a daily feeding of hemp milk. The formula included a measure of 1¾ – 2¾ ounces (50-80 grams) of ground hemp seed that was mixed with lightly heated milk 140-176° F (60-80° C), stirred, pressed and then strained to remove the seed hull and grit. In this study, oat flakes were also added — to add body and as a source of aleurone, also considered important.
The researchers Drs. Sirek and Kabelik, chose hemp and oats for pragmatic reasons. They were easy to digest and widely available in Bohemia, even in tough times. The hemp milk & oatmeal mix supplemented a diet designed to be easy on the liver. The trial was continued on an ad hoc basis during WWII, when food shortages were even more acute due to the German occupation. Ten more children were treated.
Sirek and Kabelik found their patients were able to arrest their weight loss, recover their appetites, and due to their improved health were able to recover from TB infection. In a paper presented in the 1950’s, the researchers concluded that the “hemp seed edestine … was the only substantive base of the whole treatment.”2
The concept was solid and replicable. Basically, in order to fight TB, foods had to be able to help the body’s organs and tissue rebuild. Hemp seed — a nutritionally significant source of edestin and arginine proteins, and today also known to be a powerful source of Essentially Fatty Acids — proved to be a low cost and very method of helping sick children get better.

A short oral report recounts that a similar therapy was used in a hospital in South America in the 1930’s. According to Garnet Kranz of Killaloe, ON, the seed mix was quite strong, almost vacuum packed, and had to be drank with a straw. Afterwards, the pulp would be eaten in order to fill the stomach.
Today, there’s been certainly many advances in medical science, including chemotherapy, powerful antibiotics and surgery, but complimentary and non-invasive dietary solutions remain pertinent, and not just with TB, but in many conditions.
With dehulled hemp seed available on the market, consumers can easily make their own hemp milk without the grit. Pre-made and mixed hemp milk is also sold by the carton, available in different flavors and formulas.
But heath is not just for sick people. Hemp foods, in all their forms, have a lot to offer.

Cannabinoids Occur Naturally in Human Breast Milk

The same cannabinoids found in marijuana are also found in breast milk. This may initially sound shocking to some, but the fact is that these cannabinoids have an important purpose in the growth and development of babies. Cannabinoids promote hunger in newborns, which ensures both an adequate milk supply in the mother and enough nutrition for baby.

The Purpose

Babies have to learn how to eat after birth. Cannabinoid receptors in the brain bind to the chemicals in breast milk to trigger a hunger response in babies. This response helps babies to nurse frequently. Frequent nursing is very important during the first months of life as baby learns how to eat. The brain and body of a newborn rapidly develops during the first year of life. Breast milk contains everything that a baby needs to develop, but the baby must first learn how to suckle. When cannabinoid receptors in the brain are activated, newborns experience a natural response that improves the coordination of muscles used to drink breast milk.
The naturally occurring cannabinoids in breast milk have a specific biological purpose that helps infants gain weight after birth. The same response that encourages an infant to eat is reflected among cancer patients who use medical marijuana to regain their appetite after treatment based caused severe weight loss and nausea. The fact that the human body has receptors for cannabinoids is important to consider. The cannabinoids in breast milk are the same as those found in marijuana. As a medicinal plant, marijuana can be beneficial for many reasons.
When used medicinally, marijuana can improve immune function and reduce the symptoms of many diseases. Cannabis is a natural pain reliever that has been used in some states as an alternative medicine for cancer, glaucoma, and for anxiety and depression among adults. The use of marijuana among cancer patients has been well documented as reducing the severe side effects of cancer treatment, which can include nausea, tiredness, vomiting, and depression. In modern society, marijuana is slowly becoming a viable complement to traditional medical treatments. According to, cannabis is useful in the treatment of Alzhimer’s disease, migranes, premenstrual syndrome, and seizures.

The Benefits of Cannabis

Cannabis has an effect on both the central nervous system and the immune system. BBC News reports that multiple sclerosis sufferers have experienced relief from symptoms of the disease by using cannabis extracts after other treatments failed. The relaxing properties of marijuana extracts can also be useful in the treatment of some mood disorders. The true potential of marijuana, especially in its natural form, is yet to be determined because of the stigma attached to the use of the plant. Luckily, people have started to realize that cannabis is a truly medicinal plant that can improve health while promoting a sense of well-being when used properly.
Fresh marijuana leaves can be juiced to create a healthy drink that contains dozens of beneficial cannabinoids. The use of marijuana as a natural remedy to illness and disease dates back thousands of years. It is only in recent history that the use of cannabis has become taboo. With more people fighting illness and disease than ever, the use of medical marijuana is growing. Cannabinoids, and cannabis, are safe and effective in the treatment of many different conditions. That human body was designed to make use of cannabinoids from birth. Natural cannabis,rather than extracts, is the best way to get the health benefits of marijuana.
