Health trends are on the rise in America today. Taking care of your body is taking an overwhelming precedence in the lives of millions of Americans. With the publics realization that healthy eating results in a higher quality of life, hemp is being cast as a super food that contains many ben-ecial components.
Hemp foods are naturally high in protein, ber, amino acids, and essen-tial fatty acids (good fats), but they will not get you high. Manufacturers en-sure that hemp foods contain minimal amounts of THC, so you cannot fail a drug test from eating hemp. Hemp seeds contain several vital minerals in-cluding phosphorous, potassium, mag-nesium, calcium, iron and zinc. They are also a source of Vitamin E and car-otene, a pre-cursor form of Vitamin A. Guess this makes the lore of Buddha subsisting on hemp seed a little more believable!
Hemp seed is gluten free and there have been no reported allergies to hemp. This is especially important considering that more and more peo-ple are allergic to peanuts or have lac-
tose intolerance.A very important characteristic of
hemp foods are the Omega 3 & 6 essen-tial fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs are build-ing blocks of our cells and they help a number of ailments including arthri-tis, bromyalgia, high blood pressure and diabetes. More and more studies are highlight the need to increase our intake of EFAs. Most suggest solutions including upping the intake (salmon in particular). However, hemp is a great green and more humane alternative.

CAREGIVER OF THE MONTH
Jim D provided us with photos (below, and right page) to show off his latest crop results.
Q: Your favorite strains? Nirvana Seeds, White Rhino,
Dinafem Seeds, White Siberian
G13 Labs, Pineapple Express,
Flying Dutchmen, Blueberry
Skunk, Green House Seeds, and
Super Lemon Haze.
Q: Do you ush? Always. I ush between major fertilizer
transitions, before owering, and
for 10 days prior to harvest. Also,
if a plant looks unhappy ushing
is the rst thing I do.
Q: What was the best piece of equipment you pur-
chased? A cloning machine. It
really makes cloning so simple. They are relatively inex-
pensive as well, so Id recommend them.
Q: What type of lighting: T-5 for clones and early
veg. Sodium 1000w for late veg
Q: Do you prefer Indica or aSativa? It depends on the
symptoms/treatment. For daytime
use to remain functional I would
say Sativa strains are best, for night
time relaxing or for before bed I
would recommend Indica strains.
Q: How do you feel about the new Compassion Cen-
ters? I think its great that they
nally passed. When patients need
medicine between their personal
harvests its a great solution. Working for one of the Com-
passion Centers would be a dream job!
I read multiple magazines,
books, and watched hours
of videos to increase my un-
derstanding of these unique
plants. But like most things, you
gain most of your knowledge
through rsthand experience.g p

F or nearly a century, Americans have been bombarded with messages that have rmly established marijuana as a risky drug favored by hippies, burnouts, and the occasional tweedy professor. While Americans overwhelmingly sup-port a patients right to choose cannabis, most still think of the herb as an alternative substance for alternative people.
Californians may be leading the way toward restoring our right to choose this plant, but their love for sticky buds and a good toke has given Middle America the impression that cannabis is about joints, bongs and vapor bags lled with something that looks like smoke. In New England, weed is viewed as a drug of the lesser classes; ne for prep school and vacations at sea, but if youre a 50-something profes-sional with teens in the house, well, youd better just keep quiet about it.
This cultural and social separation is reinforced in
