Safer for the Consumer | People die from alcohol overdoses. There has never been a fatal marijuana overdose.
“The official publication of the Scientific Research Society, American Scientist, reported that alcohol is one of the most toxic drugs and using just 10 times what one would use to get the desired effect could lead to death. Marijuana is one of – if not the – least toxic drugs, requiring thousands of times the dose one would use to get the desired effect to lead to death. This “thousands of times” is actually theoretical, since there has never been a case of an individual dying from a marijuana overdose.

Meanwhile, according to the CDC, hundreds of alcohol overdose deaths occur the United States each year [http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5337a2.htm].”
In one study, children of ganja-using mothers were tested and compared with children of non-ganja using mothers. Tests were conducted when the children were 1, 3, and 30 days old, and at ages four and five.
No statistically significant differences in developmental abilities were found, except that the 30-day test showed that children of ganja-using mothers were superior to children of non-ganja mothers in two ways. These children had better organization and modulation of sleeping and waking, and they were less prone to stress-related anxiety.

“Hemp’ comes from the plant Cannabis sativa, and this is where the controversy begins. Yes, hemp is indeed related to marijuana; however, it is the industrial hemp that we’re considering here. Industrial hemp has very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the rogue ingredient. It is the amount of THC present in the plant that determines its use in the industrial sense or as a medicinal or recreational drug. Simply put, hemp is the strain of the Cannabis sativa, that has low levels of THC, and is therefore, absolutely safe. Countries that allow the production of industrial hemp issue licenses to strictly prevent any kind of misuse.”
