There are a lot of myths out there about CBD however, Dr. Barry will help to clear up and reveal the actual truths regarding this very important cannabinoid. CBD, it’s NOT going to get you high so, what’s all the buzz about in both the health field as well as the news media? Over the past several years, CBD has had a huge up-swing in interest as a result of the tremendous amount of studies that have been published regarding its therapeutic properties. It has been rumored that CBD has become the next big discovery to assist our bodies in leading a healthier life. But, it’s important to be able to sift through the misconceptions that are floating around out there and truly understand where it’s been and why has it received such a bad rap over the past 80 years or more? What I am speaking of here is a plant that has the ability to compete with plastic, oil and building materials. This industrial plant has been cultivated for 1,000’s of years and in 1970, with the formation of the Controlled Substance Act under President Richard M. Nixon, it was labeled as a Class 1 Drug by the US gov. Nope, it’s not marijuana, but HEMP…which contains the naturally occurring high concentration of the medicinal compound known as CBD. In 2014 laws began loosening up and Kentucky’s Agricultural Commissioner, Ryan Quarles, opened the doors for his state as well as several others to follow in reviving the growing of hemp for research purposes. Which, I would have to say they are doing an amazing job! So, what happened? Here we have one of the most versatile plants known to the civilized and uncivilized world that has become the most politically discriminated agricultural crop this country has ever seen. Matter of fact hemp was labeled as a plant that was so dangerous that it was to be whipped off the face of the earth! It wasn’t dangerous to anyone or anything except to those industries that it could create strict competition for. What did our government do to protect us as well as their allegiance to these high-powered industries? The truth simply wasn’t told!!! Smearing hemp through a propaganda campaign that associated it with marijuana. Early in the 20th century, hemp competed heavily with several major up-and-coming industries. Environmentally friendly hemp threatened the lively hood of the lumber & paper industries which is where the Newspaper industry stepped in and flexed its muscle of public influence. One of the largest newspaper publishers in America launched a campaign against hemp using its publications all over the country as well as its political clout to smear the public’s perception of the crop. The practical applications of hemp are limitless and the real reason it was illegal for many years is simple, it was just one way to preserve the profits of large corporations at our expense. It needs to be mentioned that CBD oil when extracted from industrial hemp, that contains the majority of cannabis’ therapeutic value, is now federally legal. We are proud to say CBD Pro’s CBD is grown in the state of Kentucky which is quickly becoming a national leader in Hemp production. Therefore, CBD Oil from hemp is Federally legal to be sold in the US under the strict guidance of the USDA. *This content is strictly the opinion of Dr. Barry Morrison and is for informational and educational purposes only.
