Food- Cannabis potential

Food non-Cannabis

So for the last post on Cannabis I’ll write it’ll be on it’s most basic use and likely the most important use. Food. We all need to eat.  Not only do we need to eat, the food must be wholesome and filled with nutrients.  Most food today meets that criteria but much of that is genetically altered and suspected to cause many ills in consumers.  The consumers are also the domestic animals we eat like bovine and sheep, pigs.  Pesticides meant to kill pests infused within the growing plant and more chemicals to preserve the food so it’s fresh on the table is suspected of making more and more people sick. Returning to basic farming to provide local vegetables and other produce with none of the added chemicals or preservatives as well as livestock and fowls fed organically  to local farmers markets and to feed their families makes sense.  Consumers do have a choice and local is reputably better.  Cannabis should be available there imho as it is grown locally.  Did you know Cannabis oils both activated and raw can be infused into or onto any food and many recipes replacing butter and blended into most if not all beverages?  It is a healthy additive in pure form.

Cannabis, the diet for wellness

Well, a Cannabis plant starts as a seed which in itself is food.  It can also make a beverage, a ‘Nut Milk‘.  Its use into other products like fuel for your vehicles creates an editable Hemp Seed Cake for humans and animals both domestic and ferial.  That seed is full of everything an animal IE the human animal could need in nutrition and minerals.  But it’s not the only part to eat.  The whole plant, both genders can be eaten from the roots & stalk to leaf and Cola.

None of it will make you high unless it’s a female plant and the Cola is prepared ahead of time by Decarbing, which removes an acid molecule that prevents the psychotropic effects of Cannabis, and CBD (Cannabidiol) Oil will not make you high even after Decarbing.  For medicine, it’s only part of the whole picture.  The plant defines what it means to be sustainable for our use, fast growing, versatile/diverse in its use providing employment for generations of humans from seed to consumer with thousands of end products helping communities and individuals.

The End?

Not for Cannabis for sure, the plant has no end except winter when it must go doment being a fair weather plant outdoors.  This is November don’t forget.  It is the last planned post focused on Cannabis but many will be written heavily influenced by it.  If you want to see more posts on it, or have questions on anything I wrote on a previous post please contact me below and I do thank you in advance.  Any other family safe subject you may want me to research (*with Google of course) just ask or suggest it and I’ll write about it in a future post.  Refer to my Privacy Policy for your assurance of confidentiality

Where do we grow all this Cannabis?  Part ‘B’

Uses

Fuel

We suspect that Cannabis could reduce our dependence on “Big Oil“, with just one use.  Some call it a wasteful use, as there is information out there that claims a ton of dry biomass is burned to produce about 80 US Gallons of Gasoline type fuel and a pile of charcoal is produced referring to Cannabis Fuel.  The charcoal in that purpose is 100% useful as fertilizing material for new plants, it could also be used in heating to replace coal use, being very similar but being wasteful not worth thinking about. Same as for capacitor use where Carbon Graphite (from the remains of burned Cannabis fiber) rods make the components of that device.   However that is not how Hemp biofuel is made, that thinking is archaic and reminiscent of a Refer Madness infection.  Any vegetation could be our Biomass, but in this example our Biomass is Cannabis dba Hemp.  The pluses outweigh the negatives as far as I can see, just the seeds are used with the oils squeezed out.  This produces a ‘cold pressed seed cake’.  This Seed Cake is completely editable, it’s sold as domestic animal feed but it is edible for us as well.  The fuel itself is non toxic and can be consumed but is said to be unpleasant in taste, an alcohol stronger and less toxic than rubbing alcohol.  A spill would be good for the environment, fertilizing soils, leading to the next part where Cannabis will help.

The Forest Industry

It could replace the need to rape the forests industrially as another use.  Today, industry replants pure stands of Pine and Spruce trees after clearcutting, creating firestorms that grow humongous and some endanger communitiesDeciduous trees and shrubs are eradicated with prejudiced practices done by industry that threaten natural forests.  Feral animals are nature’s tools, the shrubs are berries and other seed bearing plants planted by nature in the circle of life.  Nature is out of balance.  Any non conifer plant growing near a ‘treated pure stand’ is growing in pesticide residue, usually deformed and is toxic to life.  It struggles to exist in a pure stand.  We do need big industry to step out of the forests for at least one generation of humans.  But…  We use forests for recreation, we use forests for employmentWe use the resources the forest produces in construction, paper products,school projects, hygiene (toothpicks) and way more even in some very wasteful ways, like toilet paper. With Cannabis:  Hempcrete, Hemp Lumber, Hemp Paper, Hemp Toilet Paper, napkins and more paper products, no toxic chemicals needed.  Everything wood can be replaced by a Hemp product in fact, all that can be safely tossed when its useful life ends.  It returns to the soil a lot faster than wood, most won’t have been preserved in toxic chemicals.  Every product employs an army in a sustainable workforce from seed to consumer.  There is much more it can do, I could describe Plastic and Food, The problems about Batteries and a Capacitor which is all it can be at present, but I won’t on this post.  I hope it inspired you to do some research and expand your ‘Weeducation‘, it isn’t always learned on the first puff.  The Industrial end of things is a whole other class in the school of Weeducation  Thank you for following so far, Hope you’ve been paying attention.  Keep reading for Cannabis Potential part 3-c, it needs not cut into agricultural land, well fertil soils overall excluding ferial…  Subscribe if you haven’t yet.  Next week that post will be uploaded

Cannabis Potential part 3 A

Where do we grow all this Cannabis?  Part ‘A’

If you need to start at the first post in this series, that is here.  This is part A of Where to Grow, Explaining “Feral Cannabis” which is beyond first generation growth and appears to be ‘naturally seeded’ by animal and bird droppings. Usually when I start a conversation about Cannabis and promoting my vast awareness of the plant with my limited understanding someone askes about land needed.  Most of my early knowledge I learned listening to the stories of weeducated individuals in all sorts of worlds during the last of the illegal years from about 1977 in a Northern British Columbia small town, then researching truths online after 2005.  The community I grew up in was rumored to have supplied the Cannabis to Prince George and points east west north and south of the hub city during many of the Prohibition years ending in 2018 in Canada.  In return, before the hype of today with the opiate problem, Cannabis was often traded for Cocaine and Heroin and the community was said to be layered a foot thick with those drugs.  It has grown up since then but that I feel it created the problems today, entirely created by an insane law that lumped Cannabis worse than those 2 drugs.  But that’s so far from the question I added it to show background as I listened to many stories that were proven as fact as I became as weeducated with no growing experiences.  I’ll break this in 2 parts so you see my reasoning of where to grow and how it adds, not takes away from, exising Biomass by filling a niche in agriculture today.

Cannabis in the wild

Early settlers to North America first settled here because the land was prime to grow Cannabis for the homeland and their own needs as they settled.  Land was hard to secure and grow Cannabis in the ‘Homeland’ due to conflicts changing borders and taking prime farmland during times of conquest.  In the decades before the ‘European invasion‘ created the United States which used Cannabis in part to break free from Europe and become independent, the plant was used diversely and for the most part, needed very little human intervention allowing settlers to shape the country.   Cannabis’s end product of Hemp was needed for war efforts at home and supplied material like rope and sails needed to explore, food and materials for settlements among all the other resources the new land offered.  Most of that early Cannabis escaped the plantations which were often abandoned and forgotten as generations progressed.  Speed further to 1899 to well after 2000 in North America, law enforcers took care of ‘ditch’ or wild Cannabis with prejudice where and when they noticed it.

It still grows all the globe including North America. Unseen in a ditch, spread free and proud perhaps on a remote mountainside or sheltered in an unseen valley it grows.  Studies show the Feral Cannabis to be very low quality and could be industrial class for at least the seeds, much more with awareness.  Seed eating small animals sitting around the bottom of the food chain and birds love Cannabis seed in their diet.  So do larger creatures who eat seed and those also eat those creatures.  Cannabis Seed survives the digestive track and is deposited in a smelly pile of nutritious fresh fertiliser, even when going through the predator as a second digestive track.  They found the plant most often in areas of disturbed and compacted soils like ditches and industrial lands abandoned, perhaps deposited by a rodent or bird chasing a rodent, perhaps by both while and after consumption of the smaller prey.  Where Feral Cannabis grew, it tolerated other species native to the environment and appeared to improve the soil and enhance surrounding biodiversity.  Refer Madness calls it invasive.  In the wild it exists peacefully coexisting naturally globally, flourishing strong without any human intervention.  Including in North America where Refer Madness laws calls it a ‘Noxious Weed’, but not officially as the Google keyword used on Google brought up all sorts of government websites and info suggesting toxic and noxious weed info links, but no mention of Ferial or wild Cannabis, Hemp at their websites on the subject.  Stay tuned for part ‘B’ in about an hour!

Cannabis, or how to restore the Forests ‘The Why’

Continued from PART ONE of “Cannabis Potential”  If you need to read that one, the link will take you there.  Go ahead.  I’ll wait for you to return….   Welcome back.  Before that though, its good to see why we need it to happen.  This is a ‘Weeducation‘ class, by the end I hope you know Cannabis Potential

Prelude to why we need Cannabis

Perhaps as early as 1940 or sooner, the industrial impact on British Columbia’s (mis)managed forests growing in our province has made an impact on the world’s environment.  The forests are a form of life on the planet, with succeeding generations like us.  Fast forward to the year 2000 and 2 decades more, and we have threats like Old Growth Forests being harvested for their ‘Net Worth’ to the economies of BC and Canada.  It’s BC’s 2nd leading industry behind Mining, another forest damaging industry but resoritive in most cases, no threat to ‘Old Growth’ as far as I know.  Those Old Growth trees are very important to the entire ecosystem of the forest working in harmony with the rooted plants, animal births and while they grew, other trees of the forest.  It likely ‘fathered’ and sheltered multi species life for better than 2 centuries.

Random thought

When I die, I would like to be a tree growing wild.  If everyone had that thought, cemeteries could be new forests, trees lining streets providing shade began with bodies as fertiliser legally.  It worked for at least one gardner who was a Serial Killer who’s flowers grew strong and healthy in a competitive market before it was discovered, I read soon after he was caught.   Back to forests then Cannabis potential…

Back to the reason

The governments of BC over the decades have allowed the harvest of many of these founding trees to the detriment of the forests whole, it must end now.  A recent plan to cut them into pellets is so wasteful even for industry imho.  2020 sees many mill closures and raw log exports.  This leads to high unemployment, social discomforts and perhaps even poverty.  The forests need to recover, we need to step back industrially from the forests for at least 2 generations of humans.  Nature has a job to balance and we need to assist it.  But we need wood.  It has so many uses in our society.  Housing.  Fences.  Construction.  Toothpicks.  Toilet Paper.  Whatever would we do without Toilet Paper! Ok well bidets are popular in most parts of the world, we’d survive.  But what of the rest?  Do we have an alternative fiber that would replace our basic needs for wood c/w employment for the workers displaced?  This is the first Cannabis potential I’ll write about, but it’s not the first use BC will recognize shortly.

Cannabis, or how to restore the  Forests ‘The How’

Concrete traditionally made and widely used in construction alongside wood develops cracks over time, crumbles bad with water, not breathable and is not real good for the environment when disposed at the end of its usefulness.  Cannabis creates a perfectly recyclable “Hempcrete” replacementHemp lumber is a thing too.  Building with fire resistant Hemp materials makes sense living in flammable forests as they rebuild themselves naturally.  Even Hemp toilet paper.  This product as well can be infused with CBD and THC for a medicinal aid for problems at both ends of your plumbing. Top it with Hemp foods for complete health through the digestive track, clean with a medicated wipe to make your butt happy.  Your mouth and butt and everything between will thank and be smiling with you!  Oh, and you mentioned employment…  There is a ton of employment from supervisors to laborers from seed to consumer, with every processed use of Cannabis to Hemp.  Don’t forget the spin off businesses perhaps selling Hemp food and clothing (and the million other items made from Hemp), they need employees too.  As this happens, less people work in the forests.  Work in the forests becomes research as it regrows naturally with our educated assistance, recreation becomes the forest’s main industry.  Stay tuned for part 3 arriving soon!

 

Cannabis potential part one

Back in history, this could be a prehistoric scene of life before it crawled ashore.

History

Cannabis was perhaps the first plant on the planet.  No one knows for certain when plant life grew on earth first or which plant, but it came long before and evolved before any animal came ashore and crawled upon the rocky or early sandy beaches.  The animals and air breathing fish came ashore in search of air, freedom of mobility and another creature for a multitude of reasons.  They might consume the other who may have been looking for seeds, or to mate with a like species creature perhaps dropping eggs or birthing on land.  What we suspect with an educated guess is that Cannabis began like all life in the oceans and likely supplemented the health of first biological starts on earth before coming ashore.  It would have preceded life on earth on solid land, its seeds contain all the nutrients animal life would need when they arrived.  The nature of the plant is to terraform soil, kind of like dandelions so in all likelihood it joined with those ground breaking  first plants, creating soil from the bare surface of our dead planet preceding the advance of other plant and advanced tree species.  It contains a high concentration of all the essential nutrient needs of life. It likely prepared soils for the first plants too, the first trees, the first animals and ‘land fish‘  to feed on the seeds and green fibers of the first generation plants, or the animals that consumed them.  Consequentially most life today has Endocannabinoid receptors which accept Cannabinoids from the plant.  Eons after that, society was forming communities.  Cannabis was employed in many human rituals plus making hempen materials to prosper and explore the planet.  Rope for example, sails way more on land including homes and meals. We learned long ago how to separate the genders of the plant for medicinal and religious effects (all female for the stuff of ‘Reefer Madness‘ sorry for that link, a reminder of the “RM” years that we cannot forget for fear we repeat) and the value of a mixed stand now called ‘Industrial Cannabis’, not Hemp while growing but it creates a ‘Hempen’ end product once harvested either as seed or fiber or even both.

One use for Industrial Cannabis is Fuel

Around the time 1899 turned 1900 on January 1st & during the decades to come, Henry Ford was building vehicles out of Cannabis and fueling them with the plant.  He sold his vehicles amid the early electric vehicles that were threatening to take over the auto market.  He had the idea people could grow Industrial Cannabis to power his internal combustion engine (ICE).  He swayed away from those thoughts before 1945 and we began the short run to today’s environmental problems that we see no end to, thanks in a large part to fossil fuels being damaging from extraction to consumption.   We should return to that Biofuel to phase out the internal combustion engine and the EV’s take over. Predictions have it phased out of most nations by 2040, certainly by 2100 we may all be using autonomous electric vehicles, which a combination of technologies developing individual power sources for all our power needs, individual to national will power.  That dream in another post I’ll make, we have so much more awareness now about clean renewable energyIs it hype to think that can solve our problems?  Not in my thoughts and many thinkers like a forward thinking corporation in my community.  This one function temporary as the ICE may fade into human history sometime in a predictable future, although perhaps as a heating oil that use will continue.  The fuel is multipurpose in itself, non toxic but unpleasant to consume.  A spill would actually help the environment, fertilizing the soil for other plants.  It’s not the only thing Cannabis can do.  Stay tuned, subscribe for more!
