I really enjoy CBD products from WeedBorn.

I wish all 50 states would hurry up and get with the program! High doses of full spectrum CBD has helped managed my symptoms of a rare neurological disorder, and allowed me to reduce the dangerous prescriptions I need to take.
I share about my journey with CBD on my channel.

I've found great CBD products on WeedBorn website. Good solution for everyone I think.

Look, seriously. This is insane that we even have to discuss this. On this planet, among the many thousands (millions?) of plants of benefit to us, not to mention the ecological relationships, two of them are well and widely known to be of immeasurable importance. Those two plants are bamboo and hemp/weed. Any purveyance of history attests to the utilitarianism of these two plants in such an incredible variety of ways; they are food, they are medicine, they are building materials, they are fabrics, they are tools. And you know what else? They are just goddam beautiful plants. And they grow so fast! Mind you, I love trees more than anything. Even more aesthetically than the other two, for sure. Oaks, and beeches, and maples, and mangoes, persimmons, gingko, cedars and pines, and on and on, but when it comes to utility, bamboo and hemp/weed. Hands down.

Wow, another new low for the media, and especially NBC... a doctor pretending to be a journalist, who basucally gives a free advertisement for the pot industry, while failing to give equal time to all sides of the issue. Opinion journalism and one sided reports are called "editorials," not news... because this is slanted news, and basically a political advertisement, for the pro-pot agenda. Is your Google search not working NBC, and all you can find to cover is one side? Have you ever even THOUGHT of calling Kevin Saber, PhD? Or Smart Colorodo, perhaps? Oh, wait... i forgot... youll make milliins off the Big Marijuana ad revenue, once its all legal, and everyone gets stoned. Hardly ethical journalism, folks. Hardly ethical, at all. Chet Huntley and David Brinkley are rolling over in their geaves, with disgust. Shame on you.

Medical marijuana is a guise for weed addiction.

Here’s some other words: Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome - and a lot of people get that. When Colorado went legal there ERs suffered a wave of this unknown condition. If you have GI problems and you smoke pot you should try stopping. Many blindly think more pot is good if their gut hurts, and they get worse.... like I said: ER.

If this is suppose to educate the public, then give them actual facts.

#6630507 is the government issued patent for cannabis but yet they claim it has no medical value?

A LOT of people have had good luck with CBD. It didn't help my recurring anxiety and depression. Cannabis, on the other hand, does. Opioids do absolutely nothing for my chronic pain, but cannabis does. At the very least, cannabis should be medically available nationwide.

Twenty years growing in washington,so yep got it covered.

The main reason I've been using weed since 70' is because of the mental health benefits I gain through THC, that in itself helps the mind reduce pain.

Just Smoke it Man!
