Thank you Lars! That's VERY kind of you considering I haven't posted here for eons!! January 08, 2007 12:50 PM

    But I am feeling more energetic having had to deal w/ lots of personal issues and getting through them. I'm now working on healing my adrenals, and any more than that is TMI!

I really do appreciate your encouragement, and hope that you will find these threads informative, and I do promise to work harder in 2007 to keep my groups updated.

Hey Sharon, I admire your persistance. Wish I had that much, or even the time to 'learn' more. Give yourself a big pat on the back for me.  [ send green star]

3) Hemp seed is nutritious and contains more essential fatty acids than any other source, is second only to soybeans in complete protein (but is more digestible by humans), is high in B-vitamins, and is a good source of dietary fiber. Hemp seed is not psychoactive and cannot be used as a drug (learn more at TestPledge.com).

HEMP FACTS

1) Hemp is among the oldest industries on the planet, going back more than 10,000 years to the beginnings of pottery. The Columbia History of the World states that the oldest relic of human industry is a bit of hemp fabric dating back to approximately 8,000 BC.

DAILY INDUSTRIAL HEMP TRIVIA FACTS! February 17, 2006 12:07 AM

Hi! No, not High! Daily Fact #1: Industrial Hemp does not get you high! Here's one of many references about the difference bwtween Marijuana and Industrial Hemp!

from: http://www.naihc.org/hemp_information/content/hemp.mj.html

by David P. West, Ph.D.

for the North American Industrial Hemp Council

Cannabis is the only plant genus in which can be found the unique class of molecules known as cannabinoids. Cannabis produces two major cannabinoids-THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), and several other minor cannabinoid compounds.

THC is responsible for the psychoactive effect [11]. That was demonstrated conclusively in the 1960s. CBD, on the other hand, has recently been shown to block the effect of THC in the nervous system.

Cannabis strains of the type used for industrial purposes have relatively high levels of CBD versus THC. Drug strains are high in THC and low to intermediate in CBD [12]. Smoking hemp, high in CBD and very low in THC, actually has the effect of preventing the marijuana high [13]. Even when the amount of THC in a sample is as high as 2 percent, the psychological high is blocked by as little as 2 percent CBD [14].

Cannabis with THC below 1.0 percent and a CBD/THC ratio greater than one is therefore not capable of inducing a psychoactive effect. Hemp, it turns out, is not only not marijuana, it could be called "antimarijuana."



About the Author: Dr. West holds a Ph.D. in Plant Breeding from the University of Minnesota and has spent 18 years as a commercial corn breeder. Since 1993 he has served as an advisor to the emerging hemp industry regarding industrial hemp germplasm. His work, "Fiber Wars: the Extinction of Kentucky Hemp" (1994), a pioneering discussion of the functional difference between hemp and marijuana, and his other writings on hemp and agriculture are available online (CLICK HERE).
