The Real Green Deal for Independence…(Grow Your Own!) Juicing & Cooking with Cannabis

The Real Green Deal for Independence…(Grow Your Own!) Juicing & Cooking with Cannabis

I’m super excited to share this delicious ‘green deal’ information with you so you too can enjoy the amazing *entourage benefits when juicing and cooking with cannabis’. To make this possible growing our own plant food medicine is totally appropriate and even necessary – Yes there’s a small investment AND we are soul worth it. Fresh leaves every day. Who can ask for more independence than this? Learning to self care through plant medicine.  

Juicing and cooking with Cannabis is super easy, delicious, enlightening, fulfilling and I’m positive it’s beyond healthy.  I know I have a lot of plenty of descriptives here, it’s because it’s true – and right now, Truth prevails. Cannabis nourishes our endocannabinoid system, and a few green leaves a day, with our favorite produce, can change everything. We use to think the impact came for the flower, but nooo – it’s been the whole plant, the entire time – 

For those living where cannabis is legal, I highly encourage you to learn to grow your own plants, it’s not rocket science. For a relatively small investment – 4 plants (that’s the limit per household in Portland Ore) could be ‘icing on your cake’ to your reality! Plants vary according to state – in Portland clones start at $50. Google it for your area – Be sure and buy organic, if possible and only use organic plant food and fertilizers – 

Not to be repetitive and I’m sure many of you must know this by now, Hemp and MMJ are Cannabis cousins. Together they bring our world a myriad of amazing life sustaining products, from medicine, recreation and superfoods to hemp shoes, hats, cloths, to hempcrete, supercapacitors, paper, plastic, biofuel, bio-remediation and the list goes on. 

There are many levels of wonder now being explored and developed from this single cannabis plant. It’s absolutely off the charts amazing – Even more amazing is how the bureaucratic / corporate system that runs our world is dragging their feet to make this all purpose Cannabis plant legal for all people and all industries. 

With all the lies that continue to be fed to us, it’s time people take life back into our own hands and stop asking permission to do what is humanly right for our life and well being. Let’s all focus on the full LEGALIZATION OF CANNABIS in the 2020 election – it’s the only green deal we need to stimulate our wellness, economics and environmental landscape!

I’m not going to get carried away in what isn’t working when we can clearly focus on what is.  

For the Entourage effect Juicing and cooking with full spectrum, whole plant, organic Cannabis, 

10 to 20 fresh, rinsed, Organic Cannabis or Hemp
Apples – Carrots – Celery – Ginger – Cucumber – 


I use an masticating juicer – ask me which one and I’ll share
Amazing delicious and super healthy – every day

The phrase entourage effect was introduced in 1999.[7][8] While originally identified as a novel method of endocannabinoid regulation by which multiple endogenous chemical species display a cooperative effect in eliciting a cellular response, the term has evolved to describe the polypharmacy effects of combined cannabis phytochemicals or whole plant extracts.[9] The phrase now commonly refers to the compounds present in cannabis supposedly working in concert to create “the sum of all the parts that leads to the magic or power of cannabis”.[4] Other cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids may be part of an entourage effect.[8] The entourage effect.

I do believe the CBD industry was introduced because so much insane lies and propaganda has been put on the marijuana plant our entire life… The learning curb would have taken even longer than it’s currently taking to become widely accepted as a medicine because of cannabis without the ‘scary’ THC.  Basically Hemp grown as CBD is a genetically modified seed made from marijuana. However it’s the THC that relaxes our receptors to accept all the other cannabinoids Cannabis has to offer – So why not whole plant juicing as the best way to bring our inner system back to wholeness and wellness. And I’ve also found there are no psychoactive effects. Juicing gives a feeling of feeding our  body with complete nutrients…You may even hear yourself saying, ahhhh yaaa, sooo delish and I feel soul good.

Benefits to juicing –  5 Benefits of Juicing Cannabis You Probably Didn’t Know

Here’s one of my delish recipe for cooking with cannabis – Chicken soup for the soul – this is amazing and super easy to prepare!

Cannabis is one of the few all purpose plant families on the planet. One has to deeply wonder why this plant became a schedule 1 drug and hidden from the public since the early 1900’s. BTW most of this research has been done one this subject and you can find it within the portal here, in HempingtonPost.com.

Hope you take this seriously – it’s time we take our lives and our bodys back into our own hands…

Just DO IT!

Facts and Fiction About Hemp in Animal Feed

Facts and Fiction About Hemp in Animal Feed

Volatility driven by overproduction, trade wars and ever-more fickle consumers has American farmers and ranchers facing the largest financial crisis in a generation. Searching for alternatives, many U.S. farmers are scrambling to add hemp to their crop rotation. It’s the start of what could become a revolution to traditional agriculture at a time when many farmers are financially desperate.

A new survey conducted by Farm Journal and Drovers finds that among those now considering growing hemp, additional revenue and profits are the driving factors. For instance, one respondent voiced a common theme: “If I could be certain it was low in THC and it was more profitable (to grow) it would be okay.” Another said: “If it has uses, is okay for the environment, if there is a market, if I can make money, then yes.”

Livestock producers will play a crucial role in the success or failure of hemp, as the crop holds many potential benefits as a feedstuff. Some states have already set in motion programs to analyze hemp’s safety and practicality as a livestock feed. Two years ago, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed a bill creating a working group under the Commissioner of Agriculture to study the feasibility of hemp as animal feed. As of January 2019, 40 other states have given hemp the go ahead.

As cattle feed, scientists believe hemp can benefit health and increase performance. Hemp seed, for instance, is high in much-desired fatty acids, such as Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9 and GLA. It is also very high in proteins, which contain every amino acid.

Hemp seeds are also high in fiber, aiding an animal’s digestive system. It also is a good source of minerals, such as: Copper, Iron, Boron, Zinc, Manganese, Nitrogen and Zinc. Hemp will be given to animals in Colorado, via crushed seed meal, pellets or oil given as a supplement.

The distinction between recreational marijuana and hemp, and how that factors into cultivation of the crop should be noted. Hemp and marijuana are from the same Cannabis Sativa family, and they share similarities. However, the notable difference is the amount of the psychoactive chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which pro- duces a high. The references here for agricultural uses are only for hemp, which contains less than 0.3% THC. For comparison, marijuana contains from 5% to 35% THC.

With the door now open for hemp cultivation and feeding, Farm Journal and Drovers surveyed farmers and livestock producers to gauge their attitude about the use of the crop many consider controversial. We found a majority of both farmers and ranchers are amenable to using hemp, yet conservative rural values remain among the majority of respondents.

Check out the figures below that reveal cattle owners’ level of interest in growing hemp and using cannabis in animal feed.

The 2019 Farm Journal/Drovers Cannabis in U.S. Agriculture Study surveyed farmers and ranchers to gauge their interest in growing cannabis. Here’s what we learned.

Cannabis…Relax & Restore Wellness… 20 Health Benefits

Cannabis…Relax & Restore Wellness… 20 Health Benefits

The most incredible aspect surrounding Cannabis as a choice for restoration back to wellness is, the side effects; feeling ‘chill’ and slumbering deep. We’re not talking about smoking cannabis, which is okay, however, it clearly effects other receptors in our head, expanding beyond our ‘normal realm’ which is why many people love it and others hate it – expanding ‘beyond the norm’ can be a little uneasy at first, however when we begin to use it like a tool for expansion, our creativity can go to much higher levels.

Ingesting Full spectrum Cannabis is food for our endocannabinoid system. Consistency is important – consider Cannabis like vitamins, take daily! Grown your own plants – make juices and herbal foods…In joy the magic that comes with natural plant medicines!

Cannabis can be found in various forms, and the health benefits of cannabis is ever growing, here Tara Leo of CaliExtractions gives us an insight regarding the diverse benefits of the plant.

Cannabis contains CBD which is a chemical that impacts the brain, making it function better without giving it a high along with THC which has pain relieving properties. Both substances can be extracted and enhanced for use through short path distillation. Users can get the following health benefits of cannabis:

Relief of chronic pain

There are hundreds of chemical compounds in cannabis, many of which are cannabinoids. Cannabinoids have been linked to providing relief of chronic pain due to their chemical makeup. Which is why cannabis’ by-product such as medical cannabis is commonly used for chronic pain relief.

Improves lung capacity

Unlike smoking cigarettes, when smoking cannabis in the form of cannabis your lungs aren’t harmed. In fact, a study found that cannabis actually helps increase the capacity of the lungs rather than cause any harm to it.

Help lose weight

If you look around, you will notice that the avid cannabis user is usually not overweight. That is because cannabis is linked to aiding your body in regulating insulin while managing caloric intake efficiently.

Regulate and prevent diabetes

With its impact on insulin, it only makes sense that cannabis can help regulate and prevent diabetes. Research conducted by the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC) has linked cannabis to stabilise blood sugars, lower blood pressure, and improve blood circulation.

Fight cancer

One of the biggest medical benefits of cannabis is its link to fighting cancer. There is a good amount of evidence that shows cannabinoids can help fight cancer or at least certain types of it.

Helps treat depression

Depression is fairly widespread without most people even knowing they have it. The endocannabinoid compounds in cannabis can help in stabilising moods which can ease depression.

Shows promise in autism treatment

Cannabis is known to calm users down and control their mood. It can help children with autism that experience frequent violent mood swings control it.

Regulate seizures

Research conducted on CBD has shown that it can help control seizures. There are ongoing studies to determine the effect cannabis has on individuals with epilepsy.

Mend bones

Cannabidiol has been linked to helping heal broken bones, quickening the process. According to Bone Research Laboratory in Tel Aviv, it also helps strengthen the bone in the process of healing. This makes it tougher for the bone to break in the future.

Helps with ADHD/ADD

Individuals with ADHD and ADD have trouble focusing on tasks at hand. They tend to have problems with cognitive performance and concentration. Cannabis has shown promise in promoting focus and helping individuals with ADHD/ADD. It is also considered a safer alternative to Adderall and Ritalin.

Treatment for glaucoma

Glaucoma leads to additional pressure on the eyeball which is painful for individuals with the disorder. Cannabis can help reduce the pressure applied on the eyeball providing some temporary relief to individuals with glaucoma.

Alleviate anxiety

While Cannabis is commonly known to cause anxiety, there is a way around that. Taken in monitored dosage and in the proper way, cannabis can help alleviate anxiety and calm users down.

Slow development of Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is one of many that is caused by cognitive degeneration. As we age, cognitive degeneration is almost unavoidable. Cannabis’s endocannabinoid contains anti-inflammatories that fight the brain inflammation that leads to Alzheimer’s disease.

Deal with pain linked to arthritis

Cannabis is now commonly found as creams and balms which are used by individuals that have arthritis. Both THC and CBD help sufferers deal with the pain.

Helps with PTSD symptoms

PTSD doesn’t just affect veterans but any individual that goes through a trauma. As cannabis is legalised the impact it has on helping treat individuals with PTSD is being studied. Cannabis helps control the fight or flight response, preventing it from going into overdrive.

Helps provide relief to individuals with multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis can be painful, and cannabis is known to provide relief for it. Multiple sclerosis leads to painful muscle contractions and cannabis can help reduce that pain.

Reduces side effects linked to hepatitis C and increase the effectiveness of treatment

The treatment for hepatitis C has numerous side effects that include nausea, fatigue, depression, and muscle aches. These can last for months for some hepatitis C sufferers. Cannabis can help reduce the side effects caused by the treatment while making it more effective at the same time.

Treats inflammatory bowel diseases

Individuals with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis can find some relief with the use of cannabis. THC and cannabidiol are known to help enhance immune response while also interact with cells that play a vital role in the functioning of the gut. Cannabis helps block off bacteria and other compounds that cause inflammation in the intestines.

Helps with tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease

For those that have Parkinson’s disease cannabis can help reduce tremors and pain while also helping promote sleep. It has also shown to improve motor skills in patients.

Helps with alcoholism

Another one of the many health benefits of cannabis is that there is no doubt cannabis is much safer than alcohol. While it may not be 100% risk-free, it can be a smarter way to curb alcoholism by substituting it with cannabis.

Herbal Sufi’ Cannabis & Organic Chicken for the Soul…

Herbal Sufi’ Cannabis & Organic Chicken for the Soul…

Feels like we’re living on the edge of the edge these days. With all the craziness continuing to seemingly escalate in most parts of our world, shifting life like never before, stress levels are escalating to high levels.  It seems we have no sense of what’s real, solid or even simi ‘normal’ anymore, all lines have been crossed and our world has been turned inside out, and upside down, to say the least..  

Even my stress levels are being challenged and I run and meditate everyday. However, I noticed still, over this Covid Virus time, while we’ve had to stay indoors everyday, our immune systems became more compromised from the lack of sunshine and freedoms from our outdoorand  life connections.  What’s compromised  and overwhelmed most of us even more is the constant bombardment of so much mis-information, fear and hate…As if CV wasn’t enough to cripple our country. And then came part 2 of this insanity ‘The intentional death of George Floyd, a human, murdered intentionally in our face.  How can we take anymore inhumane treatment from those who are ruling our lives… No More Human Abuse, No More Lies, No more Insane control…,Now we stand and fight collectively for our human rights.. 

With Game on – we want to be ready! We know if we want to step our game up, we need to be and stay healthy. Now, I am not one who turns to meds when or if I have the flu, or anything that might seem not normal with my body. I’m a precautionary person when it comes to my health. I’m just saying I’ve been a healthy hemp girl for many moons now and in today’s world, health is wealth! So, I now turn to grandma’s life restoring remedies that seem to work every time, Organic Chicken for the Soul, with Herbal Sufi’s!.

ORGANIC Chicken stuffed with Herbs & Cannabis – YUMMMM for the SOUL!

The Recipe

HerbalSufi Cannabis & Organic Chicken recipe is sure to melt your taste buds and soothe your soul. Anyone can do this with a crock pot, organic chicken, a few veggies, herbs and some fresh cannabis leaves… And if you like, a side of brown rice makes this meal twice as delicious…First the savory taste of succulent baked chicken and herbs mixed with a few of your favorite veggies, served with rice and a green leafy salad with cannabis leaves as well, refreshingly delish. Day two, this becomes Herbal Chicken & Rice soup – best soup ever! The Cannabis leaves give this blend a rich savory flavor of the wild with the nutrients of the plant which is good for us and our wellbeing.

Cannabis is essential to our endocrine system, which balances our immune system – We each have cannabinoid receptors throughout our body’s organs and immune system. When fed cannabinoids our body begins to restore itself back to homeostasis of balance, naturally! 

Not sure if you’ve been keeping current on how essential cannabinoids are for our endocrine systems which regulates our immune system, but our Government actually deemed it Essential in many states over this CV time. (it seems there are still a few brain cells still firing in that Gov. system)…anyway. Cannabis is Essential by Chris Kilham, a Notable in the Plant Wellness industry, explains why! 

Personally we have deemed Cannabis / Hemp essential in our homes. Knowing ‘whole plant cannabis’ is full spectrum, containing whole plant nutrients, including CBD, THC, CBN and all the other terpenes, consuming the entire cannabis plant is where restoration begins. 

Herbal Sufi Organic Chicken for the Soul

You’ll need a Crockpot and a few other things you probably have in your fridge or garden! If not there’s always Trader Joe’s or a Farmers Market near by.

  1. 1 Whole Fresh Organic Chicken
  2. Veggie Options
  3. Mushrooms
  4. Garlic – minced or whole (pealed)
  5. Onion
  6. And whatever else you may desire, everything cooks easy in the crockpot!

Herbs

Cannabis leaves – between 10 and 15 leaves or a few tops

Use the fresh leaves or Herbal tops intuitively!
  1. Basil – 10 leaves
  2. Rosmery – handful
  3. Thyme – to taste – I use a few fresh 
  4. Ginger – a small piece – but not to small – use your intuition about a ½ piece
  5. Lemon – squeeze 1 whole lemon onto the chicken before you cover it

Creation Instructions:

  • 15 to 20 minutes to prepare
  • 4 to 5 hours in the Crock’er on high

I recommend you do this in the AM – at least by 11is – it’ll be good to go by 5 – it could be a little sooner and the purpose of the crock is, how slow can we go! haha

In the Beginning

  • Wash your organic chicken well in cold water
  • You’ll want organic because you’re worth the non-chemical feeding of our body, soul, experience.
  • Dripdry the checkin out over the sink while rubbing some good hymilain salt over its full body, including inside.
  • Chop and mix all herbs – add 1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil to this, blend and put into the cavity of the chicken – it’s not going to fill it – it’s going to add a world of flavoring.
  • Cut veggies to bite size
  • Stuff Chicken with herbs
  • Put in CropPot
  • Fill bottom along the sides of the chicken with ⅛ cup of water, just covering the bottom – The chicken and veggies will create all their own juices
  • Add Veggies around the sides of the chicken in the crockpot – 

Add your one special MMJ or HEMP LEAF to the middle, take a picture and share it with the world, or at least us. HempingtonPost proudly supports all things Cannabis.

Scientists believe cannabis could help prevent and treat coronavirus By Lee Brown

This is the most exciting news to wake to this Friday May 22nd, 2020, coming straight from the highly revered NYPOST –

They have high hopes for a coronavirus breakthrough.

A team of Canadian scientists believes it has found strong strains of cannabis that could help prevent or treat coronavirus infections, according to interviews and a study.

Researchers from the University of Lethbridge said a study in April showed at least 13 cannabis plants were high in CBD that appeared to affect the ACE2 pathways that the bug uses to access the body.

“We were totally stunned at first, and then we were really happy,” one of the researchers, Olga Kovalchuk, told CTV News.

The results, printed in online journal Preprints, indicated hemp extracts high in CBD may help block proteins that provide a “gateway” for COVID-19 to enter host cells.

Kovalchuk’s husband, Igor, suggested cannabis could reduce the virus’ entry points by up to 70 percent. “Therefore, you have more chance to fight it,” he told CTV.

“Our work could have a huge influence — there aren’t many drugs that have the potential of reducing infection by 70 to 80 percent,” he told the Calgary Herald.

While they stressed that more research was needed, the study gave hope that the cannabis, if proven to modulate the enzyme, “may prove a plausible strategy for decreasing disease susceptibility” as well as “become a useful and safe addition to the treatment of COVID-19 as an adjunct therapy.”

Cannabis could even be used to “develop easy-to-use preventative treatments in the form of mouthwash and throat gargle products,” the study suggested, with a “potential to decrease viral entry” through the mouth.

“The key thing is not that any cannabis you would pick up at the store will do the trick,” Olga told CTV, with the study suggesting just a handful of more than 800 varieties of sativa seemed to help.

All were high in anti-inflammatory CBD — but low in THC, the part that produces the cannabis high.

The study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, was carried out in partnership with Pathway Rx, a cannabis therapy research company, and Swysh Inc., a cannabinoid-based research company.

The researchers are seeking funding to continue their efforts to support scientific initiatives to address COVID-19.

“While our most effective extracts require further large-scale validation, our study is crucial for the future analysis of the effects of medical cannabis on COVID-19,” the research said.

“Given the current dire and rapidly evolving epidemiological situation, every possible therapeutic opportunity and avenue must be considered.”

Reposted from the NYPOST

Editor’s note: ‘Please note, full spectrum Cannabis with THC can be even more powerful for deep balancing of our endocannabinoid system which balances the endocrine system while reigniting our immune system. Cannabis has been used for thousands of years as the go to herb throughout the world. It has been less than 100 years since Cannabis became demonized and outlawed by those who rule with greed and power!’ states Darlene Mea CEO & Founder of HemingtonPost.com

Are You Cannabis Deficient?

Are You Cannabis Deficient?

If the idea of having a marijuana deficiency sounds laughable to you, a growing body of science points at exactly such a possibility. Scientists have known that the active psychoactive compound in marijuana is THC, which is short for tetrahydrocannabinol.

In August 1990, researchers reported in the journal Nature the discovery of receptors in the brain that specifically accommodate the cannabinoids in pot. Cannabinoids bind to particular neurological sites in the brain, as though the brain was specifically designed to utilize this plant. Did nature toss cannabinoid receptors into the brain by random chance? Are cannabinoid receptors part of an intelligent design for deriving maximum benefit from cannabis? Is cannabis a divine elixir of sacred communion for which we are ideally suited? Actually, a more sober answer seems likely. When there are receptors in the brain for a particular type of compound, that compound is made in the brain. This is true of many important agents that work to transmit brain messages of all types. So a hunt began to find such a compound.

In that vein, in 1992 researchers in Israel isolated the cannabinoid anandamide in the human brain. Unlike THC, anandamide is manufactured in the brain, and is therefore an endogenous cannabinoid. This agent, anandamide, is the compound that attaches to the built-in cannabinoid receptors in our brains. The name anandamide is based on the Sanskrit word ananda, which means bliss. Anandamide is a bliss molcule, enhancing greater well being and emotional satisfaction.

Ever since the pioneering work of Dr. William O’Shaughnessy on cannabis and pain compiled in the 1840’s a growing body of science has shown that cannabis offers relief for various types of pain. In the brain, the endogenous agent anandamide also plays a role in mitigating inflammation and pain. So both cannabinoids from inside and outside the body play a role in pain reduction. More recent studies show pain relief among sufferers of multiple sclerosis when cannabis is consumed.

Anandamide also plays a role in proper appetite, feelings of pleasure and well-being, and memory. Interestingly, cannabis also affects these same functions. Cannabis has been used successfully to treat migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and glaucoma. So here is the seventy-four thousand dollar question. Does cannabis simply relieve these diseases to varying degrees, or is cannabis actually a medical replacement in cases of deficient anandamide?

At least one author, medical doctor Ethan Russo, believes in the possibility of endocanabinoid deficiency, and suggests that such a deficiency might actually be a significant cause of the types of health problems listed above. His paper “Clinical Cannabinoid Deficiency,” published in Neuroendocrinology Letters in 2004, delved deeply into the various ways that cannabinoids function in the body, and how a deficiency in cannabinoids can lead to a broad range of diseases. Since the publication of that paper, a number of studies have further confirmed the effectiveness of cannabis for many health disorders.

The idea of clinical cannabinoid deficiency opens the door to cannabis consumption as an effective medical approach to relief of various types of pain, restoration of appetite in cases in which appetite is compromised, improved visual health in cases of glaucoma, and improved sense of well being among patients suffering from a broad variety of mood disorders. As state and local laws mutate and change in favor of greater tolerance, perhaps cannabis will find it’s proper place in the home medicine chest.
