Is Hemp Syrup a Healthy Alternative to "Lean"?


 If you aren't familiar with "lean", it is Promethazine w/ Codeine and is used to treat a bad cough.  But, like most opiates, people tend to abuse it.  The syrup-like substance is commonly poured in soda and sweet drinks and is becoming even more popular amongst young kids.  Rappers such as Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, and more have commonly mentioned the substance in rap songs.  The drug is dangerous and addictive.  Hemp syrup, however, could be a healthy alternative to lean.  One company, called Cloud N9ne, makes a hemp syrup that contains CBD and 9 herbs.  They also say that when taken it feels like you are "relaxing on the clouds".  CBD has been known to have a relaxing effect; and although it contains no THC it has been shown to improve anxiety and help with insomnia.  I'm sure that hemp syrup is not highly comparable to the effects of Promethazine with Codeine, but it could be the healthy and safe alternative that people need (and it's legal!).  If you head to youtube you can see a bunch of people reviewing this hemp syrup and many of them say its very relaxing.  Check out one of these reviews below!  Do you think hemp syrup is a good alternative to lean? Let us know! (Since we are all things hemp, we would love to try it ourselves and review)
