Can Growing Hemp Cure PTSD in Iraq and Afghanistan War Vets?

Can Growing Hemp Cure PTSD in Iraq and Afghanistan War Vets?

TheStreet (May 29, 2014) Industrial hemp advocacy and the therapeutic bent to agriculture both come to a head in Healing Grounds, an organization started this year by Fred-Curtis Lewis, a 36-year-old vet whose brother, Mike, founded Growing warriors in 2012. Lewis was shot in the helmet in Afghanistan in 2008 while serving as a Special Forces medical sergeant, but he believes the CBD, the cannabidiol found in both marijuana and industrial hemp, can help with his own PTSD. He discovered the power of cannabis while in Washington state, where medical marijuana is legal. Now, from his base in Kentucky, he's on a mission to help fellow vets suffering from the trauma of war. Video provided by TheStreet
