So I went on my first official BIG grocery shopping trip the other day and I brought along my green crate for the veggies. It worked WONDERFULLY. As I shopped, I put all my loose and naked veggies into the crate - but I ran into a problem. I wanted to buy green beans. I couldn't exactly throw them into the crate - that's a little too annoying, even for me.
Imagine their is just one root problem in the world focusing on which will make you come to a possibility that addresses all the symptoms like financial greed, overpopulation, mass poverty, inequality, trashing of human life, human-trafficking, pollution and destruction of habitat, small farmers and farmland, natural diversity, hunger, infant and children mortality, disease, global warmin
There's nothing in the ingredients that I can't pronounce and that's usually enough for me to be convinced that a cream is okay to purchase. This body product uses hempseed oil as one of the main ingredients, and they make a point of telling us that it contains "0% THC". I guess some people might still be worried that they would get a buzz from it? I think it points to the confusion around the two different kinds of plants, making it necessary to provide information that infers a distinction between hemp and it's kissing cousin marijuana.
Today, I'm writing about hemp seeds and no you can't use them to grow plants. They're like sesame seeds, and they've been hulled which results in being good for food only. I've been eating these for a while, mostly adding it to a fruit shake in the morning. I also like using them for salads and to increase the nutritional value of a macaroni and cheese craving. They have a nutty flavour to them.
Last year I didn't know a lot about industrial hemp and I don't think I was alone. My confusion ended when someone told me about hemp.
Not so long ago, I needed to print off some t-shirts for a project and I discovered that cotton was practically a chemical industry. My wardrobe of innocent looking t-shirts, some that I'd grown up with, used up to a third or half (depending on which statistic you site) of all pesticides/fertilzers on the market. Hemp, on the other hand, requires little to none.
I'm going to change what I buy for 40 days. All of the products I purchase will be made from industrial hemp because it is a sustainable product grown here in Canada and a lot of products can be made from it.
