Hemp Seed Oil
hemp


Hemp seed literally contains everything the human body requires. It's the ultimate "multi-vitamin". How incredible is that? My Buddhist friends tell me that supposedly the Buddha was able to survive on nothing but one hemp seed a day or something like that. This makes me want to cook my french fries in the stuff. Now that's a healthy choice! While this blogpost is specifically about hemp seed and its scientifically noted potential, Hemp itself has reached a whole new level of LEGAL in the United States. A whole new array of Hemp based products are coming out on the market, and we've only yet to see what creative minds will produce!


Herbs For Sleep Problems
sleep

Check out my list of herbs for insomnia, which tend to be of a sedative nature. They are very commonly under-rated by the unknowing, and have played a key role in the significant shaping of many cultures and there well-being and survival sense the dawn of human kind. There is a time and a place for stimulation and sedation, and a true herbalists understands this. A true PHYSICIAN understands this. I quote books on this site written by doctors with PHD's who agree. Ethnobotanist in particular appreciate the abundant and sacred nature of such life giving plants. They can tell you as much as I, that these ethnobotanical specimens are as important as plant food ( broccoli, carrots, cucumber, watermelons, turnup greens, etc ). They produce complex phytochemicals, which are naturally occuring pharmacologically active components of the plants material and matter. See citations throughout this site to learn more about the field of study.


Herbs for sore throat, sinus congestion, and respiratory health!
herbs for sore throat


These plants typically include species which naturally produce and are high in a phytochemical constituent known as mucilage. They are among some of my favorites in herbalism. There are others though, which produce their own useful phytochemicals for such a situation ( according to herbalists ), such as Menthol from the Mint species and its many strains, and many other known botanical based constituents. All of these naturally produced chemicals are crafted by a genetic code that holds the key to their creation. The substances produced in these plants ( the oils, etc ) are manufactured by nature, using complex systems of symbiotic resource sharing, and an ever so impressive system of reproductive sustainabililty.. so beautifully complex and compassionate, that it only instinctively insinuates the notion of the existence of a "god" component to reality and life on our Earth.. at least, that's what I see. It's my interpretation of the science and what it suggest. Perhaps, they are like another type of food? Please don't wage war on my plants. I want them.


Henbane [ Hyoscyamus niger ]
henbane plant


         Henbane has been historically known for its folk lore attribution to assist in "astral projection". It's considered a poison that can be used as a medicine. It really stands out from most ethnobotanicals because it should only be used by highly trained professionals. Again, it's not to be taken lightly or consumed by those who are not familiar with it. Henbane can be fatal. When used in precise dosages, it can be used as a medicine. This was a very cultural plant. It had a religious aspect to its use by certain cultures. You could say that about it, but it also has a soft medicinal side, cultural practitioners believe, and they seek to utilize them with the Arndt–Schulz rule in mind, as a central theme for the act of it becoming "medicine", the scientific spark that causes the beneficial effect within the body. Some don't like it even being brought up, but at BG, I have been a botanical journalists for over a decade now, and strive to have a solid database for the world to learn from, and without being bias.

Hops - A Relative Of Cannabis
hops plant


         Hops is used in infusions for dealing with insomnia, anxiety, and other ailments that Cannabis is considered good for. It has many so many medicinal properties that I can't fit them all into this short preview section.. The plant is closely related to Cannabis (Marijuana) and even has a similar aroma. While it does not contain THC, it has many other pharmacological alkaloids. In general, it's a calming sedative. Personally, I feel like I could make some better products than a lot of these guys.. I have a good thumb for blending. I think Hops, Echinacea and Cannabis/Hemp products should be a thing because they blend endocannabinoidically... I never find something for sale, a product or drink, etc, that I personally, would SPECIFICALLY think to create, but I have an ETSY now, and it's expanding with new stuff, so check it out.

Horsetail Equisetum arvense
horsetail plant


         Horsetail is a well known medicinal plant that's use dates back centuries. The herbs used as a diuretic, a sedative, and anticonvulsant. This means that its medicinal properties stimulate the production of urine, help calm the patient, and suppress convulsion-like responses. It also cleanses the bladder from threatening bacteria. Horsetail is also rich in potassium, and calcium, making it useful for those lacking in those as well. Looking at the picture really takes me back. Oh what a photo can do for ones production and recollection of memories and internal emotions...Continue reading..

How To Use Kratom
kratom for sale


Kratom is something people take for pain instead of pills and use for recreational energy, mood, socially like alcohol in a way, etc. It's from south east Asia. The stuff is pretty incredible and there have even been attempts by the FDA to put an end to it, even tho that idea is unconstitutional. I will avoid getting over political here, but you know how to contact the American Kratom Association. Always consult with your healthcare provider before use. I promote some books on here, but you should still talk with a doc first as they say.


Hydroponics vs Soil growing explained!
hydroponics


What is hydroponics exactly? How does it differ from soil growing? Which is better? How does one get started with hydroponics? What are the perks of both forms of growing. Learn more in this detailed blog post by me. On a really cool episode of "strain hunters", ( A cannabis seed hunting show on YouTube by professionals from the Netherlands ), it's shown how the locals could grow hydroponically using wild river paths. The roots would remain in water 24/7, and would thrive. This can be done my friends. In fact, you can make your own hydroponic contraption from stuff around the house, DIY. If you're a handy man, or know one, especially if you have supplies, it won't be hard. A water pump is required. It will be high maintinance, but it's a cool experience. It's perfect for something like watermelons, hints the name, they can literally sit in water in nature. They just "roll like that", ya feel me?


Hoodia gordonii
hoodia cactus


         Herbalist use it for treating indigestion, small infections, and to assist an individual in losing weight. It's very popular in South Africa, as are many other natural remedies. It's also loaded with vitamins and minerals adding to its medicinal properties. It should be consumed with adequate amounts of water. What makes it stand out from typical herbs, is that it's actually a cactus. I remember first learning about this stuff through Bouncing Bear back in the day. The noticability of these botanical products have never ceased to amaze me over the years. I try to be as transparent about the good and the bad as possible here on BG, and cite sources like some sort of "mad sorce hatter".(mwahaha) There's no doubt however, that you will in fact learn about some interesting plants that you'll never forget for the rest of your life, just surfing these exciting and informative pages here at Botanical GUIDES dot com.

Hyssop
hyssop herb


         Hyssop has a lot of beneficial phytochemicals and properties. It's use for digestive complaints, liver and gallbladder conditions, intestinal pain, colic and loss of appetite. The herb has expectorant properties. This means that it's good for respiratory ailments such as coughs, the common cold, infections, sore throat, and asthma. This makes it a lot like Great Mullein, and Coltsfoot It's another one of those more mysterious type plants on my radar anyway. It's been in the database here on Botanical Guides for as long as this site's been online (2010/11ish), and the page hasn't been worked on too much over the years. People who are fans of it use it religiously, this I have learned. I enjoy adding newly learned information, and updating pictures on the website here. You can expect this site to grow as time marches forward, and to see new and exiciting pictures, information, and even links maybe. Find out much more about Hyssop here.
