Interest in cannabis is increasing again,thanks to so many people trying and loving one of its compounds, the non-psychotropic cannabidiol (CBD).
Another good thing – if a cbd product from cannabis hemp has less than 0.3% thc it is legal. thc is the natural plant chemical in cannabis that causes an intoxicating effect on the user.Many drug takers seek it of course,but it can lead to a dependence addiction with potential for mental health damage.
There is confusion also about cbd oil and hemp oil.CBD is short for cannabidiol, a plant chemical with natural health giving & healing benefits.CBD comes from the leaves of the hemp strain of cannabis,and hemp oil from the seeds.Whilst health benefits are claimed for hemp oil it is generally used as the carrier to which the more potent cannabidiol cbd is added

Cannabis has had a turbulent history.Evidence shows that it was used for medicinal purposes thousands of years ago.Its capacity for inducing intoxication,led to calls for its banning which occurred in 1937.
Many consider racism was the cornerstone of prohibition. In the early days, Americans were familiar with and fond of the hemp plant, but a career law enforcement officer’s campaign to equate hemp with Marijuana as they are both strains of the same plant,(Marijuana is the Mexican word for cannabis) confused people into thinking it was a dangerous drug pushed into white American communities by people of color — specifically, Mexicans.
After the end of alcohol prohibition in the early 1930s, Harry Anslinger began a national drive to ban cannabis, motivated through hate and racism. Some of his most famous quotes include, “Reefer makes darkies think they are as good as white men,” and “There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others.”
Using racism as a tool to drive fear of substances, Anslinger pushed for the creation of his own bureau in 1930 to enforce the new prohibition: the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, which eventually merged with another agency to become the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, the predecessor to the modern-day Drug Enforcement Administration.
Then, in conjunction with newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, he successfully rebranded all cannabis into the Mexican word “marihuana,” to play off racism against Mexican people. This led to Congress proposing the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, which began the prohibition on all forms of cannabis.
