Sen. Keaveny presenting Senate Bill 822 to a Senate Committee.
In late February I presented Senate Bill 822 to the Senate Veterans’ Affairs and Health Committee, which would expand the number of medical ailments that can be treated with Cannabidiol (CBD) oil in Missouri.
This legislation will help thousands of people across our state who battle against the symptoms of their illnesses daily. I am hopeful this legislation will make its way to the governor’s desk.
Senate Bill 822 would allow people with cancer, HIV, AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage, inflammatory bowel disease, neuropathies, Huntington’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, or certain specified symptoms or complications associated with the conditions listed above, to have access to CBD oil. The oil must be recommended by a neurologist or physician. The Department of Health and Senior Services would establish a public registry of physicians and neurologists who recommend hemp extract for their patient’s use.
Missouri has the potential to expand an industry that will create hundreds of jobs. CBD oil has been shown to reduce nausea and vomiting, suppress seizure activity, and combat inflammatory disorders, neurodegenerative disorders, tumor and cancer cells, and anxiety and depression disorders. Research has shown that CBD inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells, and has found that CBD can be used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune diseases, nausea, bowl disorders and diabetes.”

MOhemp Energy: Kenaf Lignin Removal Invention Test Plants
Mar 2, 2016 Kenaf Plants growth progress gif image created with Google Picasa.
- Cardboard cylinder is a toilet paper roll center that is used to hold the plants upright. The plants are not exactly growing in optimum conditions in the widow sill. The stems of the plants do not get the wind that is needed to strengthen the plant stem and the weight of the leaves bends the stems over.
- A quarter was used for size reference early in the plants growth.
- The Red Colored lights are not from a Red Grow Light, this was caused by a camera setting in a few photos.
- I planted 6 seeds- 5 sprouted. I killed 1 attempting to help it rid the seed pod. I ripped the tender leaves and that plant never recovered and died. (Don't love your plants to death- Paul Allen)
- The majority of the photos are taken in the AM when I am getting a cup of coffee to start the day.
- This is also when I turn the supplemental lighting on.
- Supplemental lighting is generally left on a minimum of 12 hours a day, 7 am to 7 pm.
- The Grand-kids are marveling at how fast the Kenaf Plants grow (and so am I). I told the middle child that they will eventually grow taller than us. They could grow up-to 15 feet tall, which is 4 times as tall as you right now. (Note to self: she doesn't know how tall 15 feet is. I have to do a better job of comparison)
- She also asked, "if we are going to eat these plants?" I replied, "I don't know I guess we could, I've heard of other people eating Kenaf plants. And read that Kenaf Growers feed the plants to their farm animals."
- Occasionally, as the Temperature warms the plant tray is taken outside and placed on the Patio so the plants get Natural Sunlight. I hope to also strengthen the stems by doing this with the natural breeze.
- I am planning on re-potting the plant starts into bigger pots soon.
