Cannabis can save us from ourselves - Energy Stew interview with Stephen Gray
We've all learned about the value of medical marijuana and are excited about its potential. It's really only a part of the contributions marijuana and hemp will be making in our lives.
Hemp used to be the best agricultural plant that supported us over a hundred years ago. It's amazing what one acre can provide; 45 tons of vegetable protein, 300 gallons of oil, 25 tons of fiber and much more. It needs no fertilizer or pesticides and improves the soil. It's amazing that it was outlawed.
Too bad it contained a fraction of THC, the intoxicating chemical in marijuana as they are both cannabis plants.
Medical marijuana is the wedge that's driving home the opportunity to be more exposed to the plant, giving us the door to its recreational side.
Many of us go back about 40 and 50 years when we saw pot as a hit and a high and a hunger inducer. Because it was so secretive, we couldn't openly examine the fine distinctions of its many varieties.
Now, in the states it's legal, we have the opportunity to learn about it many mental, psychological and spiritual qualities.
It really is an opportunity to help us live more calmly and clearly with as much energy or relaxation as we'd like.
