As I mention in the show, it is easy to get sucker-fied when it comes to purchasing hemp seed oil or CBD oil. There is a lot of flim-flam operators in the marketplace.

We have a vulnerability to want to find anything that can help us cope. 
 
If you are seeking for alternatives for traditional opiate medication it seems like it is an option. But if you don’t know the basics, you can lose time, money and an possible effective treatment source.
 
My intention is to find a way to get to the basic information needed to make an informed decision.
 
It is easy to find the junk and too dang hard to find viable, credible information.
 
Deep breath. 
 
This is a small effort to find alternatives.  Alternative does not necessarily mean safer. 
 
Again, start with identifying the basics  
 
For those of us that had actual critical thinking classes this means:
 
  • What is it?
  • What is it made of or how is it process?
  • Who is doing what and why?
  • Who is doing the opposite? 
  • Why and what are the benefits and risk?
  • What is in it for them?
  • What is in it for you?
 
In this episode the actual uses of Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Oil.
