Hemp Movement to discontinue Super Hemp CBD; endorses Plus CBD

The Food Movement  first came to being in 2011.  Through our unique relationship with our friend Stuart Tomc, we were able to be one of the first companies to bring the legal and safe dietary supplement CBD (cannabidiol) to the health food market in our sister company the Hemp Movement, and the product Super Hemp CBD.Super-Hemp-Plus-CBD.jpg

At this point in the evolution of CBD in the natural marketplace, it has become clear to us that there is only one company to support going forward – and that is the brand Plus CBD by CV Sciences.  The only company pursuing clinical work, true GRAS (generally regarded as safe) status – and the main brand selling THE REAL CBD.  Not trying to convince you that you need “something else” with marketing and misdirection.  In the Endo-Cannabinoid system, there is no “alternative” to CBD any more than there is an “alternative” to the key to the lock on your front door.

In light of that kind of misinformation, I wanted to make this announcement as a service to all of the people who might get the wrong idea through rumors or innuendo.  Super Hemp CBD is not being discontinued, in so much as the identical (actually slightly improved with the addition of extra virgin olive oil) product is now available from CV Sciences, and is available in the best health food stores everywhere including throughout the Midwest from the Hemp Heroes at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market.

The Food Movement will continue to make the finest organic super foods, bioactive food-based dietary supplements and other great products such as our new Boneless Broth.  Thank you to everyone who has helped to bring this potentially life-saving plant-based nutrient to more people, and helped to distinguish a safe, legal dietary supplement from its cousin mary jane.  May God bless plant medicine and the continued education of our species.

A Brief History of the Hemp Movement in America

hemp-for-victory-movie-poster

Let’s take a minute to look at the numbers. Hemp History Week happens every year from June 1-7th.  With all the renewed focus on this important plant, it is worthwhile to take a moment to explore this interesting history even in the other 51 weeks of the year!  While it is a much more sustainable crop than say, trees being grown for paper mills, Hemp has gotten a bad rap over the last 57 years due to an interesting mix of industry and politics.

Take a look at this Hemp History Timeline on the Hemp History website.  As you can see things start off well in the 1700s with the Declaration of Independence being written on hemp paper, and almost all of the founding fathers growing it.  President Abraham Lincoln uses hemp seed oil to light his house. While ‘Hemp for Victory’ is a rallying cry in World War II, by 1957 Hemp is no longer grown in the US due to “confusion over hemp and drug varieties of the plant, while new government incentives for industry replace natural fibers with plastics, ultimately bankrupting key hemp processors.”

Then in 2004, the Ninth Circuit Court decision in Hemp Industries Association vs. DEA permanently protects sales of hemp foods and body care products in the U.S.  But yet still no Hemp is grown in the US.

Fast forward to 2014 – and we find the Kentucky and Colorado Departments of Agriculture are fighting with the federal government for the right to grow industrial hemp in their states. BACKGROUND HERE Now, just recently we see that the Federal Government and the state of Kentucky have settled their differences, and the state of industrial Hemp appears to be turning a corner.

Say it with me – Hemp Hemp Hooray!  This beneficial source of human nutrition and sustainable industrial applications could just yet be America’s latest bumper crop all over again.
