Every year in July, National Hemp Month celebrates one of the world’s most versatile and usable plants- Hemp. Needless to say, its popularity is indeed growing. For many years laws that have been put into place banning cannabis have also included Hemp, even though it is not intoxicating at all. The hemp plant gives us an all-natural, eco-friendly fiber with many uses that range from making clothes to manufacturing paper.

As a growing plant, it helps clean pollutants and toxins from within the soil. Hemp is a source of CBD, the newest thing in the health and wellness world. In honor of this agricultural celebration, we’d like to list a few books that you can get to help break the stigma and incorporate it into your life.

This is a well-written primer for people to learn about CBD & Hemp to increase knowledge to purchase with wisdom and comfort. An excellent guide for anyone, no matter their understanding. This is definitely a great place to get started and learn your basics.

The author inspires me with her positive, healthy outlook, especially given her health struggles.
