Just in case you haven't read my Marijuana disortation yet here on Spoonflower.....
This fabric design promotes my strong belief that the United States needs to start producing Cannabis for both medicinal and industrial use and here is why. First, during my cancer treatments I reacquainted myself with the miracle of hemp. Suggested to me by a nurse who saw I wasn't doing well with the pharmaceuticals the hospital was giving me for the trouble I was having eating. The pills they gave me caused sever dizziness and didn't work that well. Two hits of pot and I could eat, the stomach cramps stopped in seconds and it played a big part in saving my life. Marijuana is also well documented as the best treatment for crones disease and many other physical and mental health issues.
Then there is the nutritional value. Hemp seeds have the highest volumn of amino fatty acids of any known plant on Earth, far surpassing even flax seed. Used as flour in breads and snacks it is what we consider a super food in both the amount of nutrition and the body's ability to break down and use that nutrition.
Then there is industry. Hemp oils can replace any petroleum product on the market. It can also be used to make a cleaner, better burning ethanol for gas but the big deal here is that growing hemp does not destroy the earths nutriant level like corn does and can be planted in the same fields every year which means more productive land per foot than corn.
We would never have to cut another tree for paper and many building products. Hemp is a yearly renewable product that makes a better, stronger, longer lasting paper than wood without all the acids of wood. It also makes a stronger composite building board than sawdust.
Clothing textiles are super strong and long lasting made from hemp and a whole lot easier to grow and pick than cotton.
There is no existing industry that couldn't benefit from hemp oil to run their machines bringing our dependance on fossil fuels down to nothing. It can make plastics stronger with less environmental impact, to be used in everything from home building to air planes and has the strength to do it better than any current products. It can also be used as a plastic for water bottles that is biodegradable but a strong sturdy to hold you beverages.
Posting fabric designs such as this is helping me educate folks as to why it is so important to stop the prohibition of Marijuana. Speak to your law makers and set forth a smart plan for our future. This would create so many jobs and bring a clean industry to the US that is so needed. The plant exist to nurture us and we can not allow our government to continue to deny us the benefits of this magical weed.

Love this. Lots of movement.
Thank you for stopping in Jean. My holiday gift to my family was big bottles of hemp oil, sesame oils and apple cider vinegar with "mother" to use for salads and foods. Hemp Seed Protein
Hemp seeds are second only to soybean in protein content. Proteins serve a variety of functions in the human body such as acting as enzymes, antibodies, and the structural components of tissues, hormones and blood protein. The main function of dietary protein is to supply amino acids for the growth and maintenance of body tissue. Digestion disassembles proteins into their basic building blocks - the amino acids.
Hemp protein contains all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all 9 essential amino acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body's needs. Hemp seeds contain an adequate supply of these high quality proteins (EAAs) for a well balanced diet.
Hemp protein is free of the tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas. Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seeds is made up of the globulin protein Edestin and is found only in hemp seed. Edestin aids digestion, is relatively phosphorus-free and considered the backbone of the cell's DNA. The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites. (see our nutritional composition tables for further info)
Hemp Seed Oil
The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the lesser desired saturated fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) contained in hemp seed oil are required in our diet more than any other vitamin, yet our bodies do not naturally produce them. They must be obtained from external sources in the food we eat. EFAs are involved with producing life's energy throughout the human body and without them, life is not possible. In general, North Americans have a high dietary deficiency in EFAs due to out high intake of animal fats versus plant fats, caused by our high consumption of processed foods and meats versus natural organic foods. Hemp seed oil has been dubbed "Nature's most perfectly balanced oil", due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linoleic/ LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/ LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition. In addition, it also contains smaller amounts of 3 other polyunsaturated fatty acids in Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid and stearidonic acid. This EFA combination is unique among edible oil seeds. (see nutritional composition )
Extensive studies have demonstrated that many common illnesses are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body. Symptoms are often related to a lack of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and their derivatives, the postaglandins. Most people eating a healthful diet, one that includes a balanced ratio of essential fatty acids, also have healthy skin and a strong immune system. Yet some individuals may experience shortages in specific fatty acids or their metabolites due to dysfunctional enzyme systems or other inhibitions in their metabolic pathways caused by genetic, immune-system-related, or even environmental factors. It has been proven in several clinical studies that dietary supplementation with EFAs or their metabolites (such as GLA) will often prevent or even cure these illnesses. Since hemp seed oil contains both EFAs in a desirable balance while also providing two of the EFA metabolites, it is a good resource for the prevention and treatment of certain illnesses. Hemp seed oil also provides an adequate supply of antioxidants (Vitamin E), carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), phytosterols, phospholipids and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc. Hemp seed oil also provides a good source of chlorophyll. The daily recommended allowance of hemp seed oil is 14-28 ml (1 to 2 tablespoons). This allowance provides between 8 and 16 grams of Omega 6 (LA) and between 3 and 6 grams of Omega 3 (LNA). And lastly, unlike other Omega-rich alternatives (flax, evening primrose, borage or fish oils) that are sold mainly as a vitamin supplement, hemp seed, hemp oil and hulled hemp seed all have a flavorful "nutty" taste that will create consumer demand and can easily be added into most any recipe to obtain a balanced diet!
Caution: Highly unsaturated vegetable oils such as Hemp Seed Oil are denatured by heating above 150ÂºC (300ÂºF), which can result in the production of unhealthy trans-fatty acids and increased peroxide values. Use Hemp Seed Oil as a flavor-enhancer in many recipes. Do not use as a substitute for frying oils. Keep bottles tightly sealed after opening and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
In addition to the high quality protein and oil found in hemp seeds, 34% of this nutritional package deal is rounded out with carbohydrates made up of dietary fiber and a small amount of sugar. This dietary fiber is made up of 3% soluble fiber and 27% insoluble fiber. (see nutritional composition.

Yea, Janiece! Your marijuana designs are so welcome now, and they're exceptional. Not many can live up to that. I've been making art and graphics with this beautiful herb for almost 20 years, which means I'm old. . . but wise! Yours are some of the best designs I've seen (most are just leaf, leaf, leaf) and it's easy to see you are a real artist and activist. I've made marijuana life but I'm still waiting for my "big brake". I'm really patient. :)
