Interesting catch 22. Just because something contains nutrients doesn't mean you're going to absorb them. To actually get half those nutrients, you need to sprout the seeds. By sprouting (germinating) hemp seeds you are technically cultivating hemp without a licence (not that it would bother us lot)! Sprouting is a pretty common method of reducing phytic acid content.  
 


Where are you getting all this stuff about cannabis being the most studied plant on the planet and that it was one of the first crops? I can explain why both of those statements are categorically wrong if you'd like to discuss? 

 

just look, it’s easy to find the info..

 

you could answer your own questions by posting your understanding of what you believe to be right. I’ve offered a statement of opinion, counter it if you like, i love reading about stuff..

Those with epilepsy or multiple sclerosis. Or a patient receiving radiotherapy and is exhibiting chronic side effects. Or palliative treatment. Cannabis will only be prescribed as a last resort, after trying systemic drugs.

@twigs I've written a few papers on the transition from scavengers to hunter gatherers to settlers of early hominids. The earliest evidence that cannabis was purposefully grown as a crop (and it only hints at it being grown as a crop at this point - nothing solid) comes about 2000 years after the agricultural (neolithic) revolution. The first solid evidence of it being grown as a crop comes well after that. The first crops that we know were grown were types of wheat, flax, vetch etc. While it's use goes back further than the first time it was grown as a crop, it would be innaccurate to say that it was one of the first crops. Particularly when humans would have foraged it earlier than that, from various unintentionally grown sites. Helps to learn about things other than cannabis as it gives you context

looks like that figure can go back another 8000 years 


That link just agrees with what I've said lol 

I'm not talking about the first time it was used. I doubt anyone can put a pin on that accurately. Early humans were likely veggie scavengers to begin with and ate raw flowers, bark, roots etc so that probably included cannabis at some point by complete mistake. 

Can't have been grown as a crop earlier than when I've said because that would predate the agricultural revolution - if that were the case then any books written about the beginnings of civilization would be incorrect (and they ain't).

Doctors do not use crystalline ketamine, your statement is false. 


Likewise, doctors do not risk everything they have gained academically by growing cannabis in the UK illegally.

Anyone can post some random pics of the inside of a grow tent.

 

I call bullshit.

Doctor ~ maybe

Illegal grower ~ my arse.

I can only just count the number of doctors I know that grow weed on one hand (anyone with a PHD). 

As for medical doctors, are you aware of the many many things which they can have their licence revoked for? It's not uncommon to have programs that help physicians with substance abuse cases. In fact, it's been on the rise since all this Covid shit. Clearly doctors are willing to risk it and even then they can be reinstated after treatment. In a lot of cases they may not even have a criminal record if they seek help rather than getting caught. One of the big ones is doctors treating patients without insurance (in the US). The ridiculous amount of things which Solicitors can be disbarred for is a long list too. All happens frequently enough for the word "endemic" to be used in some reports. 

Would you like to take a guess at who in the political world favours discrediting people rather than focusing on the argument itself?  

:smug:
