WithOut Ego Media launches Rethink the Herb™, a global movement that rearticulates the benefits of the whole Cannabis plant. The mission of Rethink the Herb™ is to inform, educate and eradicate the myths and stigmas around Cannabis.
Rethink the Herb™ follows the Socratic Method of the world’s most renowned father of philosophy - we ask the questions and provide a forum that unearths thought provoking facts. When we question something, we either change our mind about it, or embrace it even more strongly. It’s in the questioning that new discoveries are made. Our vision is to empower people everywhere to make their own educated decisions on the Herb, the Whole Herb and Nothin’ but the Herb!
Cannabis is the superior ecological and economical solution for every society and for our planet. With over 25,000 known uses, Cannabis bolsters all industries – health, lumber, fuel, paper, textiles just to name a few. Cannabis is in bondage and so is the health of our precious planet. Facts many do not know that we explore -
S SUPER CROP: Cannabis grows effortlessly and richly in any terrain and in short-4 month cycles (whereas trees take 10-100yrs to mature). It contains no toxins, with no pesticides required. Harvesting the plant doesn't destroy the environment’
s plant/animal eco-systems. Popular Mechanics, in February 1937, forecasted hemp being the world's first "Billion Dollar Crop" that would provide thousands of jobs and a cornucopia of consumer products. George Washington & Thomas Jefferson grew hemp and praised it in their writings. Early America mandated farming Cannabis given the multitude of uses; it was illegal NOT to grow it!
Cannabis is held in high regard as medicine treating a variety of health problems since 2727BC - many have testified to the herb curing their cancer, minimizing tumors and alleviating painful ailments caused by debilitating diseases. Cannabis has shown to lower blood cholesterol and dissolve plaque in coronary arteries.
S DREAM: As the oldest cultivated fiber plant in the world, it takes only 2 acres + 4 months to build an entire house! Evidence of a Cannabis-based concrete was found in an ancient Egyptian archaeological site; it tested flexible, stronger than cement and only one sixth the weight.
• INDUSTRIAL TEXTILES: Cannabis was used as early as 8000B.C. in ancient Mesopotamia;
the first fabric known to man is believed to have been woven from Cannabis. In 1492, Columbus brought Cannabis Sativa to America; his ships were furnished with over 40 tons of Cannabis. The first American flag was made from Cannabis! Cannabis is more durable and longer lasting than cotton. Cannabis fiber is the strongest, most durable, natural textile fiber known to man with superior insulation properties. As a paper, it’s acid-free and produces a superior paper, yielding four times as much pulp per acre as trees. Processing Cannabis paper means consuming less energy and chemicals compared to tree paper processing. Cannabis was the leading source of paper fiber - chemicals were developed to advance the wood paper pulp commerce.
• SUPER FOOD: Around 6000B.C., Cannabis was considered food in China. Drug-free and remarkably nourishing, Cannabis can be produced many ways – pressed into oil, eaten whole or milled into flour for baking. Cannabis is the ultimate source of vegetable protein; it offers a complete balance of essential amino and fatty acids.
OIL: Henry Ford made a car from Cannabis-based plastic in 1941 that was indestructible, and much lighter than steel, running on clean burning Cannabis-based ethanol fuel. To prove the vehicle’s superiority, Ford proved the strength of the car body by slamming an ax against the trunk, only to have it bounce off.
