Feds finally REVERSE the ban on this ‘sacred grass’ for pain relief

You would think the mainstream would EMBRACE anything that can SAFELY relieve pain.

Instead, the pain meds they offer keep getting more and more DANGEROUS.

And when they decide a painkiller has become TOO dangerous, they snatch it away from you… and you’re left holding the bag.

You’re STILL in pain!

Yet one of the oldest and most natural pain relievers out there has been DEMONIZED for more than half a century.

Over the years, A LOT of knowledge about its medicinal properties has been LOST.

But the tide has turned… and researchers today have set out to REDISCOVER the pain-relieving MIRACLE of this suppressed natural cure.

A case of mistaken identity

Hemp (Cannabis sativa) is one of the earliest plants to be cultivated by humans… dating back to Asia more than 10,000 years ago.

Hindu scripture refers to hemp as “sacred grass.”

Chinese emperors began to use it as medicine over 3,000 years ago, as mentioned in ancient manuscripts.

Millennia later, the most famous Arab and Greek physicians followed suit, using hemp for its anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties.

But hemp has a fatal flaw

It’s TOO useful – in medicine, agriculture, and industry.

American hemp crops flourished in the mid-1800s… during the Civil War… and through World Wars I and II.

You can eat it… but you can also use it to make paper, clothing, rope, and even building materials.

Industrialists were running scared as hemp encroached on their market share…

And a SMEAR CAMPAIGN was launched.

They riled the public up about the psychoactive effects of hemp.

Only – there are NO psychoactive effects of hemp, because it’s NOT a narcotic!

It shares the same scientific name as marijuana

But the scientific differences between them are so MAJOR, they SHOULD be classified as two separate plants.

When Nixon launched his “War on Drugs” with the signing of the Controlled Substances Act in the 1970s, hemp got lumped in with marijuana.

And conveniently, banning hemp allowed for the rise of synthetic fibers and fabrics(like Du Pont’s nylon).

Today, hemp is STILL embattled in a case of mistaken identity.

Here’s the truth you need to know…

Hemp contains miniscule amounts of THC– not enough to get you “high” by any stretch of the imagination.

While hemp and cannabis both contain cannabidiol, CBD isn’t the ONLY phytocannabinoid in hemp.

There are over 100 of them!

And they all work together to activate our endocannabinoid system(ECS) – the “missing link” in achieving natural pain relief.

Cannabinoids bind to receptors in the brain (and other areas of the central and peripheral nervous systems) and, in response, release neurotransmitters.

Those can make you feel euphoric… but they can also make you feel less pain.

A 2014 study out of Korea found that hempseed oil can even beat back rheumatoid arthritis!

You can eat hemp seeds (which are technically a nut) either whole (in the shell) or as shelled “hearts.”

Hempseed oil comes from cold-pressing the seeds.

Both hemp products are PACKED with essential fatty acids— in fact, the highest concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of ALL the healthy oils — and every single one of the 20 known amino acids.

It’s no wonder that hemp is so powerful in combating inflammation– one of the most common culprits of pain.

And that’s just what we’ve learned since 2014… when we got SERIOUS about researching hemp’s medicinal value.

We’re about to learn A LOT more…

At the end of last year, President Trump signed the 2018 farm bill – which reclassified hemp from a Schedule 1 drug (that is, with no medical use) to an agricultural product.

Now, American farmers can grow it legally… and scientists can PROVE what ancient healers knew millennia ago.
