Famine Food ~ Hemp for Health and Survival

Hopefully this will become really good news soon. A bill to allow hemp to be grown in Kentucky has passed the state legislature, is awaiting the governor's signature and Rand Paul says he will petition the Obama administration to give a waiver to allow the farming to begin.

The pressure on Obama and Holder to not grant the waiver may be great. It could open up the flood gates for other states to want the same so I don't look for it to happen anytime soon although I would love to be wrong.


Outdoor recreational marijuana growers may not be enthused about the potential for contaminating their crops but in an overall general welfare of the people viewpoint the legalization of hemp is huge. We all know of the many uses of hemp for food, fiber, fuel and medicine that we have been illegitimately deprived of. We also know that many corporate interests see hemp as a very real threat to their monopolies.

Hemp seed and their products have been called the most perfect, most nutrient condensed food the world has ever known and that's hard to argue against. I've been eating hemp seed regularly for the last year or so. Drinking some hemp milk too. The dogs like them just as much as I do. Am I better off in using these supplements? I suppose time will tell. The major problem is cost and the fact that whole hemp seed from Canada have been heat treated to prevent germination and that degrades the nutritional qualities, especially the oil. Hemp hearts, shelled hemp seeds, do not have to undergo the process but they are expensive, somewhere around a dollar an ounce in small quantities from local stores. Legalization should bring the price down considerably.

As good as hemp seed is as an addition to a good regular diet it is also known as a famine food and there is a chance it could one day be needed as a basic food in our country. In a food emergency, one could survive on hemp seed alone.
In 1937, Ralph Loziers, general counsel of the National Institute of Oilseed Products, told the Congressional committee studying marijuana prohibition that “hempseed… is used in all the Oriental nations and also in a part of Russia as food. It is grown in their fields and used as oatmeal. Millions of people every day are using hempseed in the Orient as food. They have been doing this for many generations, especially in periods of famine.”

That was over 70 years ago. Today we know hempseed is the plant kingdom’s richest source of life-giving essential fatty acids, and may well be the cure for cancer and heart disease.

Of the 3-million plus edible plants that grow on Earth, no other single plant source can compare with the nutritional value of hempseeds. Both the complete protein and the essential oils contained in hempseeds are in ideal ratios for human nutrition. Only soybeans contain a higher percentage of protein. However, the composition of the protein in hempseed is unique in the vegetable kingdom. Sixty-five percent of the protein content in hempseed is in the form of globulin edestin.1 (The word “edestin” comes from the Greek “edestos,” meaning edible.) More
Another threat to hemp is the very real possibility that companies like Monsanto would want to get their grubby little genetically engineering hands on control of the seed market.  Seed in the US initally would most likely follow Canada's lead of government intervention.
Because hemp is classified taxonomically as Cannabis sativa, Canada’s hemp production is regulated by Health Canada. Producers and manufacturers who want to work with hemp must obtain licenses from Health Canada in Ottawa.

In order to grow hemp or manufacturer hemp products you must have a license.

Producers are only allowed to plant certified seed – there is no “common” seed. All hemp planted must be an approved variety, all of which have less than 0.3% THC in them in field.

It is a requirement of Industrial Hemp Regulations that all commercial hemp crops be planted using only Certified Seed. Seed saving and the use of Common Seed are currently NOT allowed under current regulations. Seed Merchants must provide valid Certified Seed Tags to Farmers: Farmers and Processors must be able to provide valid Certified Seed Tags to Inspectors on request. Keeping good records on seed sure helps protect quality in the hemp industry, acting as a check against the emergence of less than desirable genetic traits, such as THC content, population of males and the protection of valued genetic ones, such as oil, protein, and EFA content.

This is not the approach we need and here may be why...
Some wild seed, wildseed is what we need.

When understanding the practical compatibility of hemp as an energy source, it is important to understand the reality of the seed.   The wildseed, the natural seed produced by nature is vital to the efficient use and productivity of hemp as an alternative energy, whether it is for fuel, food, shelter, paper, cloth, or medicine.
Currently accepted industrial hemp standards are set at 0.3 % THC content, which is a genetically engineered standard that lowers and limits the productivity of hemp as an energy source.  Wildseed hemp has about 3% THC content which produces much more seed and fibers for production.  As a plant it also is helpful to producing more healthy oxygen for the air quality.

The potential of hemp in any and all uses is in the quality of the seed.

According to a study published in the Notre Dame University journal, The American Midland Naturalist, wild hemp here in the USA produces 8,500 pounds of seed per acre. 

Low THC hemp allowed in Europe and Canada only makes 600 to 1200 pounds of seed  More
That's a big difference in yield just to keep the THC content low. Think about the advancements marijuana breeders have made over the last 30 years. Hemp farmers and cross breeders would follow the same route, if allowed, to increase quality and yield and save seed from year to year.

Besides all of the other uses, over 8,000 pounds of seed per acre would feed a lot of people and keep them healthy too. This flies in the face of dead food corporations and their brothers against humanity, big medicine and big pharma.

The war against food affects all of us more and more each day. Affordable organic hemp, legal in every state, would be an important step in reversing the direction we are going. One battle at a time. Tell your friends. Hemp seed is not just for the birds.


  1. hey kenny.. i posted your article at my spot... tell me what you think.?

    1. Thanks Richard, I appreciate it.

    2. Hemp has so many uses that any country can literally become a successful economy just by growing lots of hemp. That's one of the ways to tell if a country is controlled opposition. For example, if they have lots of drug addicts but no hemp industry, why not ? Even if someone is silly enough to consider marijuana harmful, cannabis for hemp doesn't even have THC. Only reason would be to comply with the demands of the bloodlines that run the world.

      If Iran really wanted to be economically successful instead of the land of unemployment and hard drug addiction dependent on nothing but oil, all if would have to do is grow hemp and liberalize to the Gadaffi and Assad level. There's a reason why hemp is illegal. People and small communities everywhere can become self-sufficient very quickly by growing hemp, and it's not hard to grow, it's a weed, grows everywhere.

      That's where the revolution should start: revolution through a massive amount of hemp growing for food and other products. Everybody everywhere grows hemp at the same time. The more they crackdown the more you grow and refuse regulation since hemp is not harmful. The pigs and federales will look ten times really stupid locking people up everywhere for growing a totally useful product that even the original constitution was written on. What are they going to do ? Lock tens of thousands of people up for 10 years or more for growing the most nutritious plant in the world for food and the most useful plant for every other use ? It's about time people stopped putting up with this shit. Weed for smoking is legal here in Cali. I just had my Jewish weed-doctor renew my medical marijuana card (yes, they're running that racket too; you're in-and-out of there in 10 minutes, it's just a pay-off and any excuse, such as my ass hurts, for the 1 year prescription). It's ridiculous to keep hemp for food and clothes and fuel and construction and other products illegal when Whole Foods and many health food stores sell hemp protein (the best quality by far is from hempusa, of course, I buy 25 pound barrels at a time plus hemp coffee and micro-plant-powder for detox).

      What will it take for millions of people to just take a simple stand and say no ? In France they have riots if there's a baker's strike and there's no bread to eat, how about hemp riots in the USA ? No one can say it wasn't for a good cause that the whole town got thrashed.


  2. It seems like hemp was banned in the US in 1937 because it competed with oil, chemical and timber industries. Special interests.
    In 1942 the US govt urged farmers to grow hemp again for the war effort and because of all it's different uses. Repeat, special interests. Then after the war it was banned again. Now it can be grown under certain, specific conditions with regulations to no end. Special interests?

    All the while, MySatan is allowed to modify and grow whatever they want? And not even the govt, after Obambi signed the latest bill, can sue them for damages? Special interests?

    You bet, those special interests of the few will be and are to the detriment to us all. But who cares, right?

    1. A lot of people don't care. It's frustrating. I am seeing a few local farmers who are waking up to the fact that MySatan's 'promises' of more yield and profits is a scam for their own benefit. An old friend of mine was visited by the state for selling his own harvested fescue seed out of his barn and was told he couldn't do that without it being tested, certified and licensed or next time he would face charges. If it had been food crop seed he may have not been so lucky to get off with just a warning.

    2. I just noticed that Noor has something on the 'Monsanto Protection Act.'

  3. It is kinda funny to me, because I'm working on a post that is, at least as far as D.C. is concerned, is right along the same lines as hemp.

    We're quickly reaching the point where everything that is bad for your health is legal and approved, and anything that may be good is either regulated or outright illegal.

    If only they could find a good excuse for outlawing strawberries and apple trees and vegetable gardens.

    1. One of my pet peeves is the FDA forced pasteurization of California almonds in the guise of food safety when it really is to destroy nutrients in this most valuable basic food. If they can't outlaw it, they degrade it. Coming soon to other foods we know and love? There are many who would like to irradiate everything we buy.

    2. Absolutely they don't want healthy people. No raw milk no proper unadulterated vitamins....I think they are trying to tell us something. Oh, and Monsanta do not have GMO food in their worker canteens, nor for that matter does most goverment agencies around the world...

  4. Are they only bringing it now because Monsanto has had time to fiddle with hemp?

    Hope I'm wrong, but Americans are really slow catching on to GM crap (exceptions here and appreciated, but I mean generally.)

    Well I hope I'm just an over the hill pessimist this time.

    1. Pessimism noted and justified. Where I am it's rare to hear anyone bring up GMO's in general conversation so I have to do it myself even though it often appears to be fruitless.

  5. curiously the only guy to offer to smoke a joint with me at Barton Springs in the Mid 80's could also throw a frisbee with his toes...

    take out a map of the US...look at Texas...

    how many Hemp farmers could there be...?

    Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.

    1. Yes, Texas alone could produce a tremendous amount of hemp. Where's Rick Perry when you need him?

  6. Hemp also makes an excellent rope, one that would withstand the sudden shock of a fat cat banker's sorry ass dropping thru the trapdoor.

    Cyprus-Style “Bail-Ins” Are Proposed In The New 2013 Canadian Government Budget!

    1. A 'bail-in?' The terminology for stealing gets more creative every day.

      That's a very enlightening article Greg. I'd say the bankers in our country have their own 'bail-in' laws waiting in the wings.

      Figuratively and literally...strong rope needed indeed.

    2. I've looked over pending bills in Congress, couldn't find any with that term, but there are several from 'Diaper Dave' Vitter that would help trash what little protections against the banks that we have. Helped by 'Crazy Michelle' Bachman who's introduced her own versions in the House.

    3. It Can Happen Here: The Confiscation Scheme Planned for US and UK Depositors

      Posted on March 28, 2013 by Ellen Brown

      Confiscating the customer deposits in Cyprus banks, it seems, was not a one-off, desperate idea of a few Eurozone “troika” officials scrambling to salvage their balance sheets. A joint paper by the US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Bank of England dated December 10, 2012, shows that these plans have been long in the making; that they originated with the G20 Financial Stability Board in Basel, Switzerland (discussed earlier here); and that the result will be to deliver clear title to the banks of depositor funds.


  7. "They had a bucket full of solution on the floor."

    Means: 1. The representitives of the congress realised they had to close the Fed and kick all double nationals out of government.

    2. The cleaners had a container of detergent to sanitize where you walk and live.

    Aren't these two related?

  8. This is off unusual find.

    "Grandchild discovers pound of heroin along I-40"

  9. Another "food for the hungry" story that is being falsely publicized is that of the fore-closed super market and its whole inventory being put in the garbage. The lie is that hundreds of starving, hungry persons were denied access to the stuff to fill their bags. The truth is that these persons are likely EBT users who also get subsidized housing. There are really hungry people who pay their way by working at low paying jobs and do not exist by parasiting on the work of others. While the supermarket goods should have been donated freely to those who had genuine needs, for sure, and not have been dumped by the police, those persons who wanted more free stuff for doing nothing but get fat on other people's money had no right to demand the stuff, claiming how "in need' they were, if they weren't.

    1. There's a local guy who for years has had an understanding with a bread manufacturer to pick up overruns and several grocery stores for their near or out of date produce and other foods. He recently bought a large refrigerated panel truck out of his own pocket but does have some donors for gas for his usual two a week runs. He fills this truck up with left overs and delivers to several locations where a number of folks will be waiting.

      Those taking the food aren't the starving masses but they are mostly relatively poor. Older folks on fixed incomes willing to eat what most of us would not want to in order to save a little money.

      A few years back much of the food went to waste as far as humans go. I took off hundreds of loaves of stale bread to feed the birds and squirrels and put many cases of ruined bagged lettuce and other greens and things, much of it organic, into my compost pile. Now the truck is emptied soon after it arrives. There aren't any left overs of the left overs. What this tells me is not exactly encouraging.

      For years an old Catholic friend has made it his mission to pick up a van load of Cosco old bread twice a week and pass it around.

      Despite any abuse, I think these kinds of endeavors can be worthwhile.


    So the 'war room' photos were shown to be photoshopped.
    What if the Fed which controls the government is certain the dollar will collapse within 14 days and realises Bernanke, Dimon, Blankfein and Soetoro and even Rothschild are going to receive the blame. Suppose out of self preservation the Fed has instructed the government in concert with the zionist media to fake a nuclear bomb attack on California/Nevada coming from North Korea.

    Think Wag the Dog in real life.

    Don't believe it? You wouldn't have believed 9/11 before the fact either.

    TPTB need a major war to divert attention from the dollar which is about to collapse.
