We have long been fans of roasted dandelion root tea and now, thanks to our relationship with a local farmer, we have hemp roots to experiment with. They were just delivered this past week.
Cannabigerol is a cannabinoid that is identified in our lab reports and if you haven ‘t ever looked at the lab reports from SC Labs, we’ve attached a few herein for you to review.
The abbreviation for Cannabigerol is CBG and it shows on our test results for the plant material we use for our salves and for our tea as CBG and CBGa. CBG is just one of over a hundred chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabis and hemp are two names for the same plant family. CBGa is considered the precursor or fore-runner to CBD because CBGa, the acidic form of CBG, breaks down to form CBG, CBD, THC, and CBC when heated. Fortunately, hemp laws that govern the non-psychoactive forms of cannabis don’t consider the potential of the medicine when regulating, just whether or not it is psychoactive in its raw, unprocessed form.
We never did a lot of vetting before on the Sisters who came to us. That’s all changing now as the efforts to punish us for not meeting individual expectations ramp up. More on that subject in newsletters to come.
After decades in corporate America, and when I finally got around to working on something worthwhile (the Sisterhood), I knew that people are either good at interviewing or not and that it doesn’t necessarily mean that because someone is good at interviewing, they are a good candidate for a teammate. On the other hand, someone can be lousy at interviewing but still...
Here in America, the American Medical Association lost credibility long ago... when it began investing in pharmaceutical companies... when it went against the recommendations of its own doctors and supported the prohibition of cannabis as a medicinal alternative... when they supported a bogus cancer-making food pyramid… sold its soul to the devil. But those weren’t the worst sins. The worst sin was that the American Medical Association and their big pharma buddies conspired to make people afraid to listen to their own bodies.
The short answer explaining the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil, based on contemporary use of the English language is that hemp oil is an industrial product that comes from fields of cannabis stalks, the harvesting of the stalks, not the flower, and CBD oil comes from harvesting the flowers.
To make hemp oil, one either processes the stalks for industrial use (paper, fuel) or grows seeds for food or seed oil. To make CBD, one is processing the flower of the plant.
When Jackie Huntington first reached out to us, over a year ago, to ask if we would consider being in and hosting on our farm Ollie and Nesta, to make a music video, we listened to the music and immediately fell in love with Ollie. We didn’t know who the artist was, when Jackie first approached. We guessed Taylor Swift or Halsey. We debated about it for weeks, as we listened and thought about it.
