  1. Hey guys, I'm new to this, and need some advice. I'm thinking of making legal CBD edibles, and so far I've found a couple of organic, non VG oils. One is suspended in coconut oil, and the other two are suspended in hemp oil. The coconut oil one - I'm thinking of getting the 250mg. The seller was really nice and told me that I need to add more dosage for help with anxiety and relaxation, and less for joint pain. The other two are suspended in hemp oil, and they say they have around 3.2%, one being an indica dominant hybrid, and the other sativa. Which one would be the best? I'm gonna start off with cookies. I'm thinking of using the coconut oil one, and mixing it in with the butter. Is that cool? I could also add a droplet to the cookie ball before it's ready to go in the oven (that could be more concentrated?) Any help would be appreciated, guys. Sofia
  2. Does anyone have any experience with CBD hemp strains and which ones work well in the southern part of the UK? I would like to set up a plot for my dad in a garden but he's not into the THC or smoking so I want to make some oils for him to help his varied muscle and body issues . Im looking for a strain with very little or no Thc hence thinking a hemp variety would be the one . Any info would be appreciated
  3. Hey guys, I'd like to share one of the recipes I've made with hemp. Although, it doesn't make you high, I hope you'll like it anyway. You can watch video of me making it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvpMOp0c5K8. Please subscribe, I will publish more videos!! For 7 bars or 28 small bites, you will need: 2 cups of almonds 1.5 cup of hemp seeds 0.5 cup of peanut butter 0.5 cup of honey pinch of salt blender When you have your ingredients ready, just start blending them in the blender. I started slowly just with nuts, and after that added the remaining ingredients. The texture should be crumbly and a little sticky thanks to all the healthy oils and honey. Then take a baking tray, line it with baking paper and pour the mixture in. Cram it properly into the tray and put it in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. When frozen, take it out and cut into your preferred shape. I melted some dark chocolate in the water bath and drizzled the hemp bites, so they look and taste great. If you don’t eat it all, keep it in the fridge to sustain the shape and freshness. Let me know how you liked it
  4. Just a positive story for a change, and good points made about our endocannabinoid system too. Not the usual propaganda and scaremongering.
  5. Not pot: US hemp farms take root under state pilot programs New York's first legal hemp farm in decades has taken root under a pilot program that's part of a national resurgence of a plant that's prized for making food, clothing and shelter but long banned along with its smokable cousin. "The versatility of this crop is amazing," said JD Farms co-owner Mark Justh, who left an international finance career to grow organic hay and pastured beef cattle and pigs on farmland 170 miles northwest of New York City. He added organic hemp to the mix this summer under a research partnership with Morrisville State College. Because of its resemblance to marijuana, the hemp field at JD Farms had a prominent "No Trespassing" sign that advises "No THC." Even if marijuana plants were hidden among the hemp, cross-pollination would render the pot impotent. Hemp has been used for millennia as a source of oil, protein and fiber used in clothing, rope and paper. Modern uses include cosmetics, nutritional supplements, biofuels, building materials and pharmaceuticals. Justh was thinking of growing it simply as a cover crop — a crop grown for soil enrichment — when he met Dan Dolgin, who was looking to partner with a farmer to grow it for its broad market potential. Dolgin, who had worked in national security in Washington, fell in love with the farm and bought into it. He's now renovating a farmhouse there near the log cabin where Justh and his wife and teenage sons live when they're not at their home in Brooklyn's Park Slope. "Hemp is a triple-value crop, with a multitude of products made from the seeds, stalks and fiber," Dolgin said. "We hope the results of what we're doing here will convince other farmers that this is a great opportunity." The trade group Vote Hemp estimates the value of hemp products in the U.S. at $600 million. But that's based on imports because U.S. farmers weren't allowed to grow it until now Since the "reefer madness" war on marijuana in the mid-20th century, the U.S. has been the only industrialized nation where hemp farming was illegal. Industrial hemp and marijuana are both forms of cannabis, but hemp lacks the active ingredient THC. The 2014 U.S. Farm Bill, which defined hemp as distinct from marijuana, cleared the way for states to regulate it for research and pilot programs. Since then, 29 states have passed hemp legislation and nine have established pilot programs licensing production, according to the trade group Vote Hemp. About 12,000 acres were planted this year, primarily in Colorado, Kentucky and Tennessee, the group said. Under New York hemp regulations finalized earlier this year, farmers must partner with a university to get a license. The 30-acre hemp plot at 1,200-acre JD Farms, the state's only hemp farm so far, is paired with nearby Morrisville State College, which is conducting hemp research. The requirement for a university partnership has deterred some farmers from getting into hemp. "I'd love to be able to get into it right away, but the research partnership complicates things," said Phil Hodges, a friend of Justh who splits his time between Wall Street bond trading and a crop and cattle farm he's developing upstate. He hopes to plant some hemp next year if the state begins to license farmers directly. "It's a huge opportunity for farmers, an untouched market." "It's a challenging crop to harvest," said Luke Gianforte, whose family has been growing organic grain for decades in central New York. Gianforte harvested the crop at JD Farms last week. "It's a strong-fibered crop, doesn't break or cut easily." Gianforte said he's interested in exploring the potential but will wait for more crop and market research results. "Farmers are leery about new crops coming along that have the world promised behind them," Gianforte said. "Seems like every 10 years some new thing comes along that's the latest and greatest." Justh said farms growing corn or soybeans already have the equipment needed for hemp, which could bring at least twice as much income per acre. Hemp seed harvested at JD Farms will be processed for oil and protein powder, and some of the stems will be used by a company that makes building products from biomass. "Hemp can come across as a panacea among its fervent proponents — everything from curing cancer to solving deforestation," Dolgin said. "Is it going to save humanity? No. But it's a valuable crop anyone can include in their crop rotation." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/ap/article-3818431/Not-pot-US-hemp-farms-root-state-pilot-programs.html

  9. I am wanting to give smoking some CBD rich female hemp buds that I found on a Dutch headshop website a try and was wondering if smoking hemp buds is something that can be done I understand there is no THC! I don't want to get high or stoned but I want to give up smoking tobacco and I don't like the taste of Greengo or Honeyrose.
