Hemp crops in West Texas could double profits from some farmers

MEADOW, TX— One of Texas’ most successful hemp crops is about 6 weeks away from harvest. Texas Agriculture commissioner Sid Miller visited Lubbock and other South Plains communities Thursday and Friday. His visit included hemp growers in Meadow.

According to Miller, Texas hasn’t grown Hemp crops since the 1940s. 

“There isn’t really anybody left  that knows how to grow it so we are kinda taking baby steps,” said Miller. 

The field which was originally planned for cotton was switched to Hemp last minute when grower Kyle Bingham received his hemp growing license. 

The farmer expected to yield double the profits from the 38 acres of hemp then he would normally see from ta crop of peanuts planted in the field. 

“So far we are excited but until it’s sold it’s not worth anything,” said Bingham

Hemp is a variation of the marjuana plants what contains less than .03% THC and therefore doesn’t cause users to get a high. 

“We are growing rope not dope,” said Miller. 

Growers are hoping the yield will produce fibers that will be used to make rope as well as produce CBD oil. The crop is around 6 feet tall and is certified organic.

But since it’s such a new crop, many herbicides and pesticides are not yet allowed to be used on it, and crop insurance is hard to come by.

“There is no safety net under this crop. You are just kind of right out there on the wild side, so you’re doing this out of your hip pocket and taking all the risk for it,” said Miller.

One of the risks being that if a crop produces too much THC is has to be destroyed.

But for Bingham, Hemp has provided new opportunities and he is ready to harvest and sell.

My experience with CBD

Republished by Plato

I will not spend an hour summarizing my mental health. I will just say that for years I have been plagued by depression, anxiety, antisocial feelings, and over the past year or so a feeling of brain fog. I was diagnosed with ADD as a child and they decided I didn’t have it 2 years later but I know I likely still do. I decided to finally give CBD from the local Rite aid a try. After 4 days I can say that the brain fog is gone. A week ago I couldn’t even explain the feeling that plagued me. I still don’t feel anything close to a normal person but I can say that I have a better ability to process my brain that I haven’t felt in years. I reccomend anyone who is interested give CBD a try. I only hope the clowns in our country can get past the marijuana BS that they try to strong along and connect to CBD.

Anxiety and ADD?

Republished by Plato

I went to a doctor to try and sort out my anxiety issues, they are becoming a bit much to self manage. They put me on Prozac and it was a complete nightmare, the side effects were horrible, not to mention all of the unspoken rules that came along with it, no drinking, no ibuprofen, and countless others.

I am a regular THC user and that seems to help control my anxiety in the evenings but I obviously do not use at work which is where the problem lies.

I have issues with general anxiety, social anxiety, and add. Can CBD help me? How do I know how much to take, and do I have to keep taking it as in does it wear off ever couple hours? I dont know anything about this stuff but I know that Prozac is NOT for me!!!
