The Secrets Of Hemp RootDid you know that #Hemp or #Marijuana root is used to #Relieve muscular and bone aches, reduce swelling, ease pain, rejuvenates circulation, promotes cellular growth, and encourages deep tissue healing.

Cannabis is known for its multi purpose nature. It can be used to make food, fuel, fiber, and medicine. The root is remembered by some as an old folk remedy for arthritis or joint pain (Bott 2008). References were also found stating the roots emetic and cathartic properties (Indian Hemp 2008). Only in the last 30 years have we begun to understand why. Over 10,000 scientific papers about cannabis have been published. Still the root of Cannabis Sativa L. is the least studied part.

A quick and easy test for the detection of Acetylcholine Esterase inhibitors was used for the bioassay guided fractionation of cannabis root extract. The roots of 9 Cannabis sativa plants (variety Bedrocan) were collected from Bedrocan BV, the Netherlands, and analyzed at the department of plant metabolomics at Leiden University. They were extracted by a range of solvents in order to extract the maximum range of compounds with different polarity.

Although alkaloids were expected to be present, they were not found in this study. Instead, mainly lipids and sugars were detected. The compound finally isolated appeared to be a lipid but could not be uniquely identified. More sensitive and selective analyti cal methods and a wider range of bioassays are needed to further explore the medicinal potential of cannabis root.

Aceyalone first stepped into the limelight in the early 90's as one of the key figures in the legendary Los Angeles group, the Freestyle Fellowship.  Over the course of four albums, the Fellowship helped redefine West coast hip hop.  Defining albums such as "To Whom It May Concern" or "Innercity Griots" introduced Aceyalone as a thought-provoking, conceptual and outgoing MC. In 1995, Aceyalone launched a successful solo career. With timeless albums such as "All Balls Don't Bounce," "Accepted Ecclectic," and the unique "A Book of Human Language," Acey gained the respect of music fans and critics alike, proving himself to be one of the finest rappers of his time.

March 2006. Decon Media once again contacted Self-Hemployed to provide the props for a Hip Hop video.

Aceyalone, who just released his album Magnificent City together with RJD2 wanted a underground/ internet music video for his track 'Highlights'.

Of course Self-Hemployed jumped on the case. Still even with our friends and connects it's not always easy to find the right spot, at the right time. "We need FULLY flowering buds! We need some chocolate, some different kinds of smokeable weed, seeds and some nice girls along his side. Bongs, rollingpapers, blunts the whole nine yards."

AceyaloneWorking in the growroom is always fun. "And you know this man.." There's nothing better then sitting in your room, looking at your babies waving in the wind of your fan. :) Eventhough this room was not to be compared with the room we went to with Ludacris, it was a very nice setup in Amsterdam. We smelled like some serious bud when we was done, that's for sure.

Check the video and get Magnificent City - Aceyalone & RJD2 on iTunes!
