Is CBD the new “Magical Cure-All” ?

CBD products may not be “Magical”, however some of the results that people have gotten from using Hemp based CBD products could almost fall into that “Magical” category 😉

Here is an email from a Very Happy customer in Fargo, ND

In March 2019 I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis, that’s where the nerves go through an opening in the lower left side of the spine. Well, do to age  and some arthritis setting in (I’m 65) Mine is slowly closing which pinches the sciatic nerve for my left leg, giving me pain and numbness while standing too long. Sitting does not bother me. In March they gave me a cortisone shot, which only lasted about 3 weeks and was very costly even after insurance. ($700), and a prescription of Gabapentin, which made me feel loopy st times. I stopped using it as I run a piece of heavy equipment for my job. So I was just popping acetaminophen to get by. Later in October 2019 I consulted another Doctor and he suggested back infusion, which would immobilize 6 inches of my lower back but he could not guarantee that it would fix it and I could have more problems. So I chose not to do that. In late December I saw another Doctor and he gave me 2 hydo-cortizone shots, 2 weeks apart. That lasted until the middle of Feb 2020. So out of a whim I tried CBD oil, and after 1 week or 2 I was feeling a lot less pain. So I ordered the weight loss program from you and also bought your CBD oil, 500 mg, broad spectrum, mint flavor bottle. I used a 1/2 of a dropper every morning. I also purchased a teeter hang up table and spent 10 minutes every night stretching upside down. Between the 2, I am able to do things that I haven’t been able to do for the past year or so. I still do get the symptoms, but not as often. Don’t get me wrong, this is not the cure-all, but it gives me relief so I can do things again (as I was becoming a couch potato) So if anyone is thinking about trying CBD oil, give it a try, you have nothing to lose… and also one other thing is that it has lowered my blood pressure!

Thank you Darren & Healthy Systems USA for carrying this product !!

In What States is CBD Oil Legal?

Thanks to the new farm bill, the legality of CBD oil is no longer under scrutiny. In addition to legalizing the cultivation of hemp, the bill allows for hemp and CBD to be transported across state lines allowing CBD companies to ship nationwide confidently and without any risks. However, states may still impose limited restrictions on CBD, though these are expected to be minimal and will not interfere with most production and consumption processes.

By removing hemp and CBD from the list of controlled substances, the 2018 Farm Bill legally dissociates hemp and its cannabinoids from marijuana. As a result, CBD is legal for consumption nationwide.

A Brief History of Hemp in The United States

Even though hemp has been used for medicinal and industrial purposes for millennia in many parts of the world, many countries have strict laws prohibiting its cultivation and use. Up until 2014, the United States was one of these countries with outdated laws restricting the use of hemp in the states for most of the 20th century.

But why was hemp illegal if it’s completely safe?

Hemp Post-Prohibition
Major propaganda campaigns had long demonized cannabis since the 1930s. These campaigns, started by Federal Bureau of Narcotics secretary Harry Anslinger, sought to criminalize cannabis as a way to find new sources of revenue after the end of prohibition. Anslinger and his associates relied on dishonorable tactics to turn the public against cannabis creating films like Reefer Madness and campaigns associating marijuana use to minorities.

Throughout the 1930s, Anslinger wrote columns in national newspapers to promote anti-marijuana views. His columns often contained racist themes exemplified in excerpts such as:

“Two Negros took a girl fourteen years old and kept her for two days under the influence of hemp. Upon recovery, she was found to be suffering from syphilis.”

“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”

As disingenuous as these campaigns were, they were successful to some extent. They managed to impose some restrictions on cannabis and its derivatives though cannabis did not become officially illegal until 1970.

The War on Drugs
Almost two years into his first presidential term, President Nixon signed the Controlled Substances Act in 1970 as part of his “War on Drugs.” The act criminalized heroin and other hard drugs; however, it also banned marijuana and grouped the plant with all type of cannabis including hemp. The act was the final nail in the coffin for hemp and put CBD on hold for almost five decades.

The 2014 Farm Bill
The 2014 version of the farm bill was the first significant piece of legislation to establish a path for the legalization of hemp giving states the power to regulate the production of hemp through research programs conducted by approved institutions. Under the 2014 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD became legal in most states proving extremely popular among the public as a medicinal supplement and among lawmakers who saw in CBD enormous potential for profit.

By removing hemp and CBD from the list of controlled substances, the 2018 Farm Bill legally dissociates hemp and its cannabinoids from marijuana. As a result, CBD is legal for consumption nationwide.
