               In the mainstream culture of Cannabis, a lot of people seem to have this "know-it- all" type of ego. The reality is, most of us know the same basic stuff. Cannabis contains THC, and CBD. You hear it over and over again. People think that hemp is useless, leaves suck, and seeds are to be thrown in the garbage. The reality is that there is no part of the Cannabis plant that is useless, nor should any of it be discarded.

I'd like to start by talking about Cannabis roots. Lots of holistic remedies and medicines are the roots of various plant species. Dandelion root and Echinacea root are two examples of this. The roots of Marijuana are no different, and the mainstream seems to have no idea. Cannabis roots contain friedelin, epifriedelino, N-(p-hydrocy-B-phenethyl)-p- hydroxy-trans-cinnamamide, choline, and neurine. Cannabis also contains eugenol, which is an anesthetic and anti-septic alkaloid.[1][4]

Choline is vital to human beings for three physiological purposes: "integrity and signaling roles for cell membranes, cholinergic neurotransmission (acetylcholine synthesis), and a major source for methyl groups via its metabolite".[5] Sense the roots thrive in soil where microorganisms thrive, it seems very likely that it's of great importance to the human microbiome. A microbiome is basically an ecosystem of necessary and beneficial bacteria to living creatures such as us human beings.

While many people believe that hemp is useless as a psychoactive drug or medicine, that is not entirely accurate. Cannabis pollen ( hemp flowers / pollen sacks ) contain impressive amounts of THC and THCA. The pollen also contains flavone, and phenolic alkaloids.[1] Aside from the well known CBD and THC that Cannabis produces, the leaves also contain Choline, trigonelline, cannabamines A-D, and more shockingly a constituent known as phenethylamine hordenine.[1] They contain many other beneficial alkaloids too.

Throughout history all parts of both the Hemp and Marijuana plants were used in medicinal elixirs. It was very frequently made into infusions with other psychoactive plants such as Datura, Poppies, and even Henbane.[1] Other non-psychoactive plants were often added to this concontions as well, like marshmallow and magnolia bark.[1] Now that you know there is far more to Marijuana than CBD and THC, hold on to all of your males, leaves, roots, and even seeds.
