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!
The Life of Hemp
Legalized in over 30 industrialized nations, industrial hemp is perhaps the most mis-understood plant in America http://www.hemp.com/hemp-university/growing-hemp/countries-growing-hemp/ .
Hemp, being a cousin to the marijuana plant was banned in the US with the Marijuana Tax Reform Act of 1937 http://www.lewrockwell.com/spl2/reason-hemp-is-illegal.html.
Repealed for a brief period during World War II (see: Hemp for Victory http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jokV8xlJTNE) the plant, although it contains little, if any, of the psycho-active ingredient (THC) has fallen victim to its close resemblance to marijuana. Legal to import, we in the United States import nearly $500 million worth of hemp products each year.
Our country’s Founding Fathers would be mortified. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were all hemp farmers http://www.hemp-technologies.com/page33/page33.html. For a period of time, it was mandated that hemp be grown – one could even pay their taxes with hemp http://bkcreative.hubpages.com/hub/Hemp-Growing-Was-Once-Required-By-Law. From industrial hemp a rare but incredible compound can be extracted – known as CBD or cannabidiol. CBD is well adapted to our recently discovered endo-cannabinoid system to provide many people with health and wellness benefits.
The Truth about CBD.
If just a small percentage of what some research doctors and scientists are saying about Cannabinoids and the particular cannabinoid known as Cannabidiol (CBD) is true, we may potentially have an amazing a scientific breakthrough. Cannabidiol, when extracted from the industrial hemp plant has shown extraordinary health and wellness benefits. http://csglobe.com/high-on-health-cannabinoids-in-the-food-supply/ .
The US based National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health has a highly positive reference on CBD on their website. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/healthprofessional/page4
Although there is little knowledge / public awareness of the benefits of CBD, this is rapidly changing. Cannabidiol, CBD, if derived from industrial hemp stalk or seed is a legal product within the United States.
