I first met Cannabis in the 60s when people would stand around in a circle passing around this strange smelling cigarette. 30 years later, as a Forester, I would occasionally have to wade through fields of tall hemp weeds (Cannabis) to get to the Forest. And now, 30 years later, 2019, I am using hemp oil to subdue the effects of Multiple Sclerosis on my body. I find my legs and my mind, together, are more peaceful at night to acquire a very peaceful sleep.
Cannabinoids in hemp oil combine well with the endo cannabinoids in our bodies. The endocannabinoids are part of our immune system with the purpose of bringing the body back to homeostasis after injury or disease. Research is showing that the hemp oil helps with forms of Anxiety like PTSD (post-traumatic stress), GAD, generalized anxiety disorder and others. It’s so amazing!
