For years, marijuana has been successfully used to help people alleviate the nausea, and physical and psychological pain associated with serious health issues, particularly cancer treatments including chemotherapy. Cancer patients should not have to travel to states where it is legal just to get treatment to mitigate their suffering.

The seeds from hemp, highly nutritious and rich in omega 3, calcium and iron, are used in many foods, including salad dressings, nutrition bars, and chips. Hemp is also highly beneficial for the skin, and is used in various body lotions, shampoos, moisturizers and soaps.
Hemp has multiple interesting benefits beyond personal health and wellness. Unlike many other crops that require fertilizer and chemicals to grow, hemp requires very little of either one. It’s naturally pest-resistant, making it extremely good for the environment. In fact, hemp is used to clean up toxins in the soil.
