Harvard Weighing In On Hemp
It’s difficult to rely on testimonials and the limited amount of detailed research on the benefits of CBD. Without the in-depth rigorous research most mainstream biological compounds receive due to their long standing legal status, skepticism and outright rejection of Hemp surrounds the entire industry. A lack of regulations has allowed many Hemp companies to cut corners and outright lie to their customer base about how many mgs of Hemp are contained in their products or whether other cannabinoids like THC are present that could result in a failed drug test.
Scientists and institutions of higher education are taking note of the obvious vacancy in research on Hemp though. Even plants like poppy, which produce compounds that are engineered into some of the most dangerous and addictive drugs on the planet, have been researched by scientists vigorously for its pharmaceutical applications. Why then have scientists and medical professionals been forced to ignore the cannabis plant? After all, the FDA has approved anticonvulsant Hemp based drugs.
Without the peer reviewed in-depth research to back up claims, medical professionals remain skeptical about CBD’s efficacy for soothing cramping and other symptoms of PMS. Doctor’s continue to question whether Hemp helps with pain, sleeping, anxiety or nearly any other medical condition without the science they are used to looking at to back it up.
There are a lot of extravagant product claims out there about the benefits of Hemp for women, but little high-quality research supports them. Hemp oil and other Hemp products aren’t well regulated. It’s possible what you are buying is counterfeit or contaminated. Before using Hemp — especially if you plan to vape or ingest it — first talk with your doctor or healthcare provider to learn whether it could be safe and helpful for you.
It is often said that women have been medicalized, meaning that women are led to believe they face more medical problems than men and therefore must be ready to pay for prescriptions and additional remedies to treat their conditions. It is certainly not the intention of Sugar and Kush Hemp to suggest anything of the sort. While research tries to catch up to the claims of the Hemp industry, customers must have some faith that the Hemp company they are using has their best interests at heart and are being fair and honest. Look for Hemp lab reports and check for Hemp reviews. Start off slow with Hemp 500mg oil bottles and then you can decide for yourself whether upgrading to a Hemp 1000mg or Hemp 3000mg oil is right for you.
