In looking forward, in order to produce enough cannabinoids and especially the beneficial Cannabidoil (CBD) – we should mention that this requires a resurgence of the large-scale cultivation of industrial hemp http://photos.denverpost.com/2013/04/20/video-what-is-hemp-rope-soap-colorados-ag-future/.
This versatile, ecologically sustainable plant with over 50,000 known uses for industrial application includes everything from hemp clothes, hemp based cosmetics and foods, to bio-plastics, hemp construction materials and hemp-based bio-fuels. See: http://www.jackherer.com/thebook/.
Practically speaking, CBD, or what Robert Louis Stevenson called the “golden oil” is but a by-product of the non-psychoactive hemp plant. Most hemp is grown for industrial uses other than for obtaining CBD– for now… If the hemp plant has not already done enough for us by providing health and wellness benefits from CBD and other cannabinoids, it may also help us rid our society of the persistent problems of carbon-based pollution. Hemp sequesters carbon and our company has a carbon-negative profile! More on Robert Lewis Stevenson: http://www.robert-louis-stevenson.org/
Hemp may give rise to a healthier, sustainable, renewable based organic life-support system for our planet, which our children and grand-children may enjoy!
Cannabinoids are extracts derived from the industrial hemp plant and cannabidiol or CBD as it is known, is the most abundant cannabinoid that is so extracted. The human body will produce its own natural cannabinoids when undertaking extreme exercise. Our CBD infused products, derived from the natural industrial hemp plant can help maintain or promote the nutritional and dietary health to assist aging bodies.
Hemp In America
Today industrial hemp is still not legal to grow in the US, even with 19 US States having passed legislation that, if the federal government would only so permit, local farmers could legally grow hemp http://www.votehemp.com/legislation.html. With the governmental ban, we import our hemp products thanks to a landmark court case where the US DEA lost in their effort to keep all hemp based products out of the USA (http://newstandardnews.net/content/index.cfm/items/1485).
In the US, we currently import nearly $500 million worth of hemp products, from nutritious hemp seeds, to hemp oil and protein powder – to hemp t-shirts and hemp fabrics – but we still cannot grow this vital crop here in the USA!

An excellent report on hemp is found here: http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL32725.pdf
Our developmental partners have searched the earth to find the best sources of hemp that contain certain cannabinoids that seem to foster significant health and wellness properties. They then extract these beneficial ingredients and bring to the USA as hemp oil for further processing. This includes health and wellness based products that contain CBD are now available to health conscious consumers!
