Historical:
Apparently, etymologists, confirmed that 'kineboisin' (also spelled 'kannabosm') referred to cannabis used in a holy ointment. Therapeutic uses were described in Indian medical texts before 1000 BC and in Chinese herbal Ry-ya in the fifth century BC. It was listed in the Pharmacoepia of several countries including the USA, until its demise in the thirties. It has analgesic, anti-emetic, anti-inflammatory and sedative properties; it is also a laxative and hypertensive.

Hemp was once grown widely in North America, until the thirties; Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were both hemp farmers. It has a long history of use and is a valuable commercial crop; the seeds have excellent nutritional value and the foliage can be used as cattle fodder. In the textile and paper manufacturing industries, the cloth is extremely durable and versatile. The cellulose pulp for paper products is far more environmental than that of wood, due to its fast growing nature. How many more forests do we have left !? Hemp can also be used in building materials and the car manufacturing industry and before the invention of electricity, hemp oil was used in lamps for lighting. Its cultivation, unlike cotton, is extremely environmental as it requires no special fertilisers or insecticides. Its long roots reach down into the soil and draw nutrients and minerals to the surface, so conditioning the soil

The value of hemp as a plant cannot be stressed enough. So why isn't it widely grown commercially anymore? It is mainly due to a huge industrial conspiracy (Jack Herer ; The Emperor Wears No Clothes-Hemp and the Marijuana Conspiracy 1991). Technology had put hemp in a position were it could have replaced wood as a raw material for paper. In 1937 DuPont patented a new process for making paper from wood. They were also involved in synthetics, munitions and processing cellulose. The newspaper giant Hearst, also had interests in timber/paper. The two industrial giants set about launching a massive smear campaign against hemp. Calling it ‘the killer weed from Mexico’ and renaming it 'Marijuana'. Their combined political clout soon turned public opinion against hemp and laws were enacted to entrench their vested business interests. The growing of hemp became illegal and still is, in North America. Hemp oil and steamed (to prevent germination) seeds are legal.

A member of the Cannabinaceae family, native to Asia and the middle East, it can grow up to two metres high. The lower leaves are digitate and the upper ones consist of simple or lobed bracts. The flowers are small and off-white, appearing towards the top of the plant. The seeds are ovid and pale brown.

All oils should be kept out of eyes. Do not put on top eye lid as this may run into eyes. You should be able to use at 100% unless you are sensitive.
