Kahului, HI, December 22, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Federal Farm Bill that became law today corrects the classification of Agricultural Hemp as a Schedule 1 “Controlled Substance,” wrongfully established over 75 years ago.
"No longer labeled more dangerous than Heroin, Agricultural Hemp may now be restored to it’s rightful position as an extremely valuable and easy to grow agricultural crop used for food, fuel and the many thousands of products the plant has been celebrated for throughout human history," says Steve Rose, Chief Hempster of the Maui Hemp Institute for Research and Sustainability.
The Hawaiian Island of Maui, with three growing seasons to expedite research and abundant vacant land and water left from the end of Sugar Production just two years ago, is a particularly fertile location to facilitate the return of Hemp to our society. The Maui Hemp Institute for Research and Sustainability is dedicated to agricultural and product research here, which will benefit the world.
The new Farm Act reverses a ban that resulted from an economically-driven propaganda campaign waged by a handful of industrial capitalists in the 1930’s intended to remove all Hemp products from the market place.
Prior to the ban, Agricultural Hemp was a significant source of dietary protein and vital nutrients including Phytocannabinoids which have been a major part of our food supply since the dawn of humankind.
Research reveals that with Hemp banned, most people and our domesticated animals are suffering from an Endocannabinoid Deficiency, linking the lack of Hemp based cannabiniods to such growing modern maladies as migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/pdf/10.1089/can.2016.0009
Prior to the ban, Hemp was the primary source worldwide for paper, clothing, rope and countless other textiles, oil for fuel and lubrication, and medicines. The wrongful ban on Hemp has had many detrimental impacts on our environment, farming communities and society as a whole.
Our forests have been decimated to make paper from trees; Cotton, which is environmentally toxic to grow and process, is now grown widely; pharmaceuticals have displaced natural plant medicines; and energy and products such as plastics made from coal, natural gas, and petroleum are loading our atmosphere with Carbon which is suspected to be the primary contributor to manmade climate change.
On Maui, farmers can soon plant Hemp as a first step in soil remediation for Maui’s over-farmed, chemically-damaged sugar and pineapple fields. Hemp fiber can be used to “Grow Houses” and provide food, fuel, medicines, windbreaks and many other benefits to the local economy.
The Maui Hemp Institute for Research and Sustainability is now free to implement the many Agricultural Hemp projects here that have been in the planning stages for the past 4+ years.
