There is growing agreement that the use of hemp for medicinal purpose should be made legal.  Hemp leaves are a natural option to ease pain – in various parts of the body.  Easing pain is a challenge for most at some point in life.  For many, pain management is an on going battle.  For most of life, we face challenges which cause mental and physical discomfort, fatigue and pain.

New challenges come with growing pain – fear of the unknown, insecurity in skills or how to act – nervous energy – all contributing to suffering or sorts – often with gain.  When we suffer with uncertain purpose or out of necessity to survive, we seek to self medicate – to cope – seeking support and empathy from other to feel and ease our pain.

Eating is necessary for life.  Indeed, most animals soothe with food.  The chemistry of food influences mood as well as physical bodily functions.  Easing pain as a leisure or legalized medical measure can be nourishing to mind and body.
