Hemp & CBD

What is Hemp?

Hemp is the world's premier renewable source. Fuel, food, fibre - all of the basic building blocks for an industrial society, all from a single plant. Hemp is the number one plant for producing clothing, paper, plastics, building materials, food, beverages, cosmetics, methanol fuel and an impressive amount of cleaning and paint products. Hemp and Marijuana are both varieties of Cannabis, but industrial Hemp contains a small amount (usually 0.3% or less) delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a compound that produces psychoactive effects, while marijuana contains much higher levels of THC (up to 30%). If you smoked a field of industrial Hemp, you would only get a headache! Hemp seed has many health benefits as well as a delicious nutty flavor. The seed provides essential nutrients, such as high quality protein, soluble and insoluble fiber, vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids (EFAs). Hemp is the only natural food that contains EFAs in a balance ideal for human consumption. The hemp plant can also be made into rope, clothing, medicine, as well as a base for plastics, paper and fuel. Hemp produces four times as much paper pulp over the same period of time as the equivalent area of trees. Trees take up to 30 years to mature, and Hemp grows in 90 days, it is shameful that so much forestry is still used for paper. 

 

What is Hemp CBD Oil?

CBD Oil is the oil that is pressed from the mature stalk of the industrial Hemp plant. It contains many naturally occurring Cannabinoids and terpenes. 

 

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a very new and exciting discovery in the science world. The ECS regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, some inflammation responses and cognitive function. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2) but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system. Your ECS makes sure that you entire body is functioning at the highest caliber!
