I want folks to make an informed decision. Before you can make a decision you need facts, research and resources.

There is a lot of hokum about hemp seed oil and CBD oil. Both are oils that come from the hemp plant.
They are not the same. They service different populations and purposes. In this episode, a look at what is hemp seed oil and CBD oil.

There was an interesting conversation about the original 2005 formulation of Four Loco. It was a fortified beer that had a lot of caffeine in it. It also came in fruit flavors. And wormwood, can't forget about the wormwood.

On Twitter there were people telling their stories about drinking half a can and then being tore up for the rest of the night.
Other people mentioning that not only did they drink a can of Four Loco but had a vodka chaser. The word blackout was often used.
This is when reading becomes fundamental. Not that it would have stopped any teen or college freshman from gulping it down but maybe reading that the drink had caffeine and a percentage of booze might have slowed or stopped a few of them sipping 24 ounces/709ml of trouble.
Which is my I want to talk about Hemp Seed Oil. It will not make you sick like the original Four Loko. But there are "opportunistic" people  who want to exact money from you based on ignorance.
