Aye, it must have a intoxicating effect or you wouldn't bother with it.

Lets gets real.

If it has any healing properties without getting someone high, people will use it.

Healing? Do you mean relaxing!

"CBD aka cannabidiol is a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis, meaning it doesn't get a person high".

That's what they claim.

I presume healing means it helps in the healing process of an injury.

You mean it takes the pain away, or actually rectifies the issue?

I did some basic checking and came up with what I've stated, focusing on the aspect of whether it had intoxicating effects .

I also said "If it has any healing properties"...

My using the term "if" when describing healing properties clearly shows your questioning me for more detail is misdirected. If you want more detail on how effective it is regarding its healing properties you should write to them directly for more information.

If it had "healing properties" it would be classed a medicinal drug. Its a relaxent not a cure.

David Argyle said "for recovery and inflammatory pain management CBD products are very, very effective”. 

If it helps with recovery, I assume that would some under the broad description of healing properties, be that through relaxing or in other ways. One definition of heal is "to treat (a wound, etc.) by assisting in its natural repair". 

Perhaps they will be somewhat vague about what it can do because the article went on to say:

"It’s not legal to make health claims about weed products ...even on the medical side, clinical evidence is needed to make health claims." 

So rather than getting bogged down in what its likely benefits will be, we need to wait until clinical evidence is produced. As I said earlier, my interest was primarily on another angle anyway.

Shows why RL is looking to the North American market given how backward the UK has remained.

Of all the examples in all the world you had to choose this one to show how retarded, erstwhile,  bygone and retroactive the UK is!

Only one gear reverse but we got it back!

We will soon be getting interest from Rimmer and the RFL to buy a large lot and send samples to the other clubs for the players to use.

Leigh have requested a double order...one for the Club...one for Beaumont.

Have you been partaking of the substance K'man, there has been a noted aggressive change in your attitude lately, espcially in the direction of my club and it's most eloquent owner.

Anyway, if this substance is a topical application I can imagine some players of opposing teams giving the Toronto player's a right good licking😜

as long as we communicate about cannabis, it contributes to a certain trivialization of a product that remains a drug. I do not think it's an image we have to associate with a sport. In France, a rugby union club was sponsored by a famous pornographic site, the federation has stopped this partnership.

Hemp is a member of the ' cannabis family' . Don't confuse it with marijuana. 

Hemp, on the other hand, is primarily used for industrial purposes as it is capable of producing hundreds of crucial resources such as paper, clothing, building materials, biofuel, food products, oils and more. With the fast-growing popularity of CBD across the globe, hemp is also used to produce a wide variety of THC-free CBD products.

I am no defender of so called recreational drugs, but CBD does appear to be of benefit to some people.

You can re-read, I'm not talking about the product itself, but about the image and the communication that we make on this product. The articles talk about what: a cannabis product!

I think the Wolfpack are going to outgrow SL extremely quickly. This is almost too forward thinking for the English system. 

Just looking at the views on here, it's hard to believe how backwards English RL fans are.

That’s dependant on the product being marketed. If it has nothing to do with cannabis, why market the product as if it does? 

Call it forward thinking, personally from a sports oriented point of view it’s a non starter. Which damages the image of the sport. 

Making out it’s a cure is rediculous. 

Nothing wrong with winter green with mustard in it. You should try it.

Not at all Harry...just standing up for my Club is all.  Some people seem to think they can come on here and cut up Toronto but we have our backers who will not be intimidated.  If Leigh fans or their weirdo owner keep cutting up Toronto I will continue to defend.  As a knowledgeable old rugby fan you know that part of a good defence is a strong offence and we have now entered that stage.  If Leigh gets in the way of Toronto they will be steamrolled.

I'm not sure you completely grasp what the product is...

Ya, I heard people eat carp over there.  People shoot them with rifles while they are in the water over here (for fun)....its funny how the refraction from the water makes you have to adjust your shot with a 22.

CBD oil is ace. I can't speak highly enough of it.

Well done Toronto Wolfpack for showing some initiative. I hope it makes them a ton of money which they can spend on the game.

 

And no, CBD oil doesn't get you high.

Most people that fish for Carp do it for the sport , very little Carp ends up on the plate . They have a higher value as a sports fish . Big market are the Carp anglers . Biggest problem for fresh water fish are mink and otters . Animal right activists released captive mink from mink farms in the 1970s ? they have done rather well on a diet of fresh water fish  . Otters are native to the UK , until recently they were struggling due to habitat loss . The last few years numbers have grown , population has spreed out along the country's water ways . They like to feast on big lazy pond fed carp . Most Carp waters now have otter proof fences . Bit of topic again 😜

No one eats them (carp) over here.....I shoot any mink I see due to the horrible smell of their nesting/feeding caches...what a stench!  They are quick little buggers though.  Carp are fun to catch but so easy with a simple bread or cornball.  Great to see a little kid tie into a large carp!

The carp will be spawning over here soon...do you have suckers over there?

Go on then I will humour you.

Most defiantly we have suckers over here and on these pages, I bet you can guess which catagorie I am relating to!
