Earl Mindell’s Healing with Hemp Oil
The health benefits of marijuana are now getting a good deal of attention. Yet hemp―a close relative of marijuana―is actually a far richer source of CBD, the compound responsible for effectively treating dozens of disorders, and contains very little THC, the substance responsible for marijuana’s highs. Sounds like growing and using hemp is a win-win situation, right? Not quite, because the US government, which holds the patent for CBD specifically because of its healing abilities, has unfairly classified hemp as a Class 1 drug, thereby banning people in the United States from growing it commercially.
If you find this confusing, you’re not alone. That’s why best-selling author Earl Mindell has written Healing with Hemp Oil, a straightforward book that will first help you understand what’s going on with hemp oil in the United States, and then teach you how to use this valuable natural remedy to improve your health.
Interesting read. Author did thorough research on CBD.
California author Earl Mindell, RPh, PhD was inducted into the California Pharmacists Association’s Hall of Fame in 2007, and was awarded the President’s Citation for Exemplary Service from Bastyr University in 2012. He is on the Board of Directors of the California College of Natural Medicine, and serves on the Dean’s Professional Advisory Group, School of Pharmacy, Chapman University. He is a registered pharmacist, master herbalist, college educator, and author of many books, including Earl Mindell’s New Vitamin Bible, The Happiness Effect, What You Must Know About Allergy Relief, and now his important HEALING WITH HEMP OIL.
Dr. Mindell is a fine writer – no wonder he is so popular on the lecture circuit, television series , etc. He shoots straight, is well informed and opens our perceptions to the history of a substance – CBD (cannabidiol) – grown for years along with the marijuana-type vegetation. Hemp plant contains CBD instead of the THC (delta-9-tetrahydracannabidol) found in marijuana. Now modern research is recognizing the many rather extraordinary benefits to our health that CBD offers.
This easy to read important little book covers the history of Hemp and CBD, and the various healing aspects CBD is proving to be useful. The conditions CBD is growing as a healing factor cover acne, arthritis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Depression, Bipolar disorders, ADHD, cardiovascular disease, Insomnia, hypertension, PTSD, ulcerative colitis, glaucoma and many, many more.
Each disease entity is discussed in a technical but accessible manner and the manner in which CBD is useful is realistically explained.
Much of the impact of this book is the manner in which Dr. Mindell speaks so frankly and realistically about the use of CBD – this is information we all need to know and could be an important adjunct to medicine now that the laws are allowing the sale and use of marijuana and therefore hemp also. Highly recommended reading material. Grady Harp, November 17
