CBD Hemp Medicinals 101 w/ Ben Rooney of Wild Folk Farm

UU Church of Belfast, 37 Miller St. Belfast
Medicinal Hemp is also called CBD hemp.  CBD refers to Cannabidiol, a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive plant compound that conveys a significant array of health benefits.  Praise for the medicinal properties of CBD is growing, as scientific and clinical research complements overwhelmingly positive anecdotal evidence of its efficacy from a broad user base (from children to seniors) with diverse symptoms.
In this class we will discuss CBD Hemp: it’s medicinal use and farming practices as well as its relation to the body’s Endo-Cannabinoid System (ECS).  Similar to the lymph and immune systems, our body produces its own cannabinoid molecules, that greatly resemble those found in hemp & marijuana. These endo-cannabinoids bind to ECS neurotransmitters, of which we have more than any other neurotransmitters.
Instructor Ben Rooney is a farmer, and has been a non-profit manager, and farming consultant who came to Wild Folk Farm in 2012.  Located in Benton, Maine, Wild Folk Farm ’s hemp & business are MAINE GROWN And not tied to a corporate farm/business. They grow rice, hemp, veggies, and strawberries. Their no-till, permaculture, and human-powered practices ensure each plant gets the utmost care.
Medicinal Hemp is about a lot more than CBD.
