The stat sheet on hemp sounds almost too good to be true: its fibers are among the planet’s strongest, its seed oil the most nutritious, and its potential as an energy source vast and untapped. Its one downside? For nearly a century, it’s been illegal to grow industrial cannabis in the United States–even though Betsy Ross wove the nation’s first flag out of hemp fabric, Thomas Jefferson composed the Declaration of Independence on it, and colonists could pay their taxes with it. But as the prohibition on hemp’s psychoactive cousin winds down, one of humanity’s longest-utilized plants is about to be reincorporated into the American economy. Get ready for the newest billion-dollar industry. This week's guest is Doug Fine, a man who knows his hemp. In his latest book, Hemp Bound:Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution, Doug embarks on a humorous yet rigorous journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching, and pioneering hemp’s applications for the twenty-first century. Tune in to this episode of What Doesn't Kill You as Doug goes from A-Z on hemp and makes a serious case for this serious crop. This program was brought to you by Consider Bardwell.

Get ready to be convinced that you should be eating insects! Pat Crowley, Founder of Chapul Bars, is this week's guest on What Doesn't Kill You, and he's got his sights set on introducing bugs to the American plate. Chapul Bars are protein bars made using insects as healthy, eco-friendly, and tasty alternatives to unsustainable sources of protein. Pat makes a compelling case for eating insects. Grossed out? Pat and the folks at Chapul are making their protein bars using milled cricket flour, helping the consumer psychologically deal with eating bugs. He remembers a time when sushi seemed foreign to American consumers, and thinks insects are going through a similar phase right now. Could his cricket bars be the new California roll? Could insects solve our unsustainable protein problem? Tune in and get the inside scoop on insects. This program was sponsored by Fairway Market.

"Bugs are an unknown future as far as agricultural products are concerned. If you look at it objectively - it's a no brainer that we should have insects in our diet. the only reason we don't is a psychological one." [03:00]

"All of this has been about spreading an idea and creating change for future generations." [26:00]

This week on Eating Disorder, the guys welcome the "edibles" expert, Chef Payton Curry, to the program. Seeking to train people to properly medicate using marijuana in their everyday food and cooking, Payton makes points on why this practice should be more widely recognized and why the opinion of marijuana should change for the better. Though the majority of the legislation throughout the country prohibits a restaurant like Payton's Brat Haus in Scottsdale, AZ to sell infused food, the chef has led many cooking classes centered around the green ingredient. With a goal to help rather than get the masses high, he also instructs on how to use the marijuana plant to soothe pain and irritation in a lotion form, for example. Tune in for a rousing discussion and learn a little more about alternative uses for marijuana. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

"It's not about making chocolate brownies, and the world's strongest cookies. It's about helping people and making things that are good for them." [13:02]"

"It's about providing alternatives to big, corporate medicine." [13:46]

"You can make a great flour out of hemp, since 90% of America now has gluten-intolerance." [32:08]
