Theres nothing like mothers milk, right?Well, when a healthy mother breastfeeds her child, baby drinks cannabinoids in the milk.
Why? Because our body needs cannabinoids (CBs).
CBs are fatty lipids. Like a text message made of Hemp Oil, they regulate and protect our health. Without them, our internal 'wi-fi' cant work = 'dis-ease'.
CBs regulate both body and brain health.
CBs are essential for our health. If we don't make enough, we get sick.
Our Endogenous Cannabinoid System (ECS) is a vital health element that demands research, and support.
We want New Zealanders to have a safe, sustainable, prosperous, and healthy life in this country.
We believe in improving our health, our wealth, our society and environment.
Lets do that by building a resilient, innovative, biological economy that uses our talents and gifts in horticulture, agriculture, research and development.
Industrial Hemp (cannabis sativa) is historically the most versatile, valuable and useful crop in the world. It has thousands of industrial, nutritional, and medical uses.
However, the domestic hemp industry has long been stifled and strangled by politics. Green Fairies are arrested for helping those suffering pain and illness. Normal people are criminalised for having a joint, and gangs wax fat on illegal profits.
Meanwhile, internationally, science marches on, and Patents on the therapeutic benefit and commercial potential of Cannabis are filed by the 100,000.
Israel is a global leader in MedCan R&D. They've also formally recognised Cannabis farming as a sector to support, and are preparing to become a major exporter. It could be us too.
China is chasing 1.3 million hectares of what it calls the 'strategic resource' of Industrial Hemp. Meanwhile NZ resists the opportunity to innovate and improve things with both Medicinal and Industrial Cannabis.
Hemp is a multi level market opportunity. It provides high quality, and sustainable, food, fibre, medicine, chemical feedstock, and more. No other crop comes close.
Way back in 1938 Hemp was hailed as the 'billion dollar crop.' Used properly, it could be a multi trillion dollar crop.
75% of the public support reform, and they don't even understand its potential.
89% of Doctors surveyed at a GP conference in Rotorua (N=180) thought it should be a health issue.
Not a criminal one. They also overwhelmingly also thought people should be able to grow their own hemp and 'marijuana'.
Its time to end the prohibition and misrepresentation of Cannabis.
Its time to acknowledge bad policies that result in social, economic and environmental harms.
Prohibition is based on lies and ignorance, not on science.
We need to correct this, because normal 'drug' Cannabis (cannabis indica) is very very good for us,
WHEN USED CORRECTLY.
In fact, it will keep you very healthy, because of your Endogenous Cannabinoid System, http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1361971-overview
Cannabis Indica is the richest source of ECS supporting cannabinoids known. Because it possesses both therapeutic and nutritional qualities, it is a functional food. In it's raw state, it's a non psychoactive, nutritious and
therapeutic forage for animals, no matter how many legs or wings they have.
Therefore, we should look to improve our health outcomes for both humans and livestock. Cannabinoids are an essential messenger of health for all vertebrates, because we all share an ECS.
Think of it as a therapeutic salad.
Raw Cannabis can't get you high,
Excluding Hemp products, the global market for medical & adult use cannabinoids alone is expected to be worth $50bn within 9 years, and a piece of that prize could be ours,
The potential of iHemp is far greater. Climate change is upon us.
We must transition out of the mineral economy to a biological economy based upon sustainable, clean, production materials. Hemp is a no brainer.
The status quo will not provide for future generations, it is ensuring their destruction. Lets not be complicit.
Lets improve things.
