The health benefits of marijuana are now getting a good deal of attention. Yet hemp—a close relative of marijuana—is actually a far richer source of CBD, the compound responsible for effectively treating dozens of disorders, and contains very little THC, the substance responsible for marijuana's highs. Sounds like growing and using hemp is a win-win situation, right? Not quite, because the U.S. government, which holds the patent for CBD specifically because of its healing abilities, has unfairly classified hemp as a Class 1 drug, thereby banning people in the United States from growing it commercially. If you find this confusing, you're not alone. That's why bestselling author Earl Mindell has written Healing with Hemp CBD Oil, a straightforward book that will first help you understand what's going on with hemp oil in the United States, and then teach you how to use this valuable natural remedy to improve your health. Although the United States has given CBD-rich hemp a problematic legal status, fortunately, this product—sourced from other countries—is readily available. Healing with Hemp CBD Oil guides you in using this all-natural substance as a safe, side effect-free remedy.
