Any uses for the roots?

curious if anyone uses roots ground up in their tinctures? Any value in them or macrame something with them?

Some of the local growers in my area get together once a month for a round table discussion. A gentleman at our last meeting mentioned that him and his wife were taking the roots and somehow (didn’t get exact details) using it to make cbd doggy treats. He said he’s got a old husky with hip problems, e takes one of his treats and he said the dog has way more flexibility and apparently way less pain cuz he said after takin one the dog bounces around like a puppy again. He said he was quite amazed. I’d never heard of using the roots, but this guy is old school hippie and says he waste nothing from the plant. Stems, leaves, roots…he uses everything. If you are really serious about it, I’ll ask him at our next meeting. I’m kind of intrigued myself. Just one more gift this amazing plant has given us…not only does it help us, but also our best friend🐕

@pedally So I had a chance to talk with the guy I was talking about. I misunderstood him…but basically you can use the roots. He obviously washes the roots and then lets them completely dry. Then he grinds them to a fine consistency and puts them in small capsules to take orally. Him and his wife have become known as the “medicine couple”. They treat dozens of local patients with a wide variety of ailments. But he said he was getting a lot of positive results from his “patients” that the root capsules are great for arthritis.
And as for as the puppy dogs which I thought he was giving the roots to. But he takes all his stems after harvest (before and after drying) and freezes them immediately. Once frozen he gives to his dogs, he says they love it, they beg for it like a treat, and will tear it open to get to the middle, (just like a Twinkie…the good stuff is in the middle lol) but it helps doggy arthritis and sore muscles. We had a get together this wknd and made bubble hash, and played with their new press. They literally use every last thing of the plant. They also found out that people are getting great results from the water left over from the bubble hash. This was the first time I’ve seen the process, so excuse my unfamiliarity with terminology, but he used RO water and ice to make the hash. He collected all the water from the filters, and whatever water came from machine. They bottle that water and refrigerate for 10 days. People are paying $60 quart for this stuff. It’s apparently very good for crohns, IBS, and other intestinal and gastric ailments, as well as prostate and UTI. Basically it sounds like a good ol organic flush of the bodies plumbing. Lol. Only need to drink 1.5oz a day. Anyway…just thought I’d share with the group. Hope everyone is having a good and safe 2021.:raising_hand_man:t2:

This is all above my pay grade, but I’ll soak the roots to get rid of anything left over from the grow, dry them and then freeze them for later use. If I can’t use it, the pup will benefit from it some way. Perhaps a ground up powder on her food. Might get her old ass off couch lock. LOL Thanks

I too just met a guy that dilutes all his trim in 190 proof blueberry cordial, homemade. I told him I know where I’m coming next Halloween for, trick or treat.
