4 Amazing Eco-Friendly Hemp Products

Hemp-Derived Products

Hemp is one of nature’s most valuable creations. As a part of the cannabis family, this plant is a rich source of many beneficial products. Science and history have proven that this plant has multiple uses, including as a primary source of healthy CBD hemp oil.

Once banned in the U.S. for being closely associated with marijuana (both plants belong to the cannabis genus), the federal government has finally legalized it upon the signing of the Farm Bill. Now that the cultivation of this plant on the American soil is finally allowed and even encouraged let us probe into the benefits of this plant not only to our health and our daily lives but also to our environment.

Hemp: The Wonder Plant

Since ancient civilizations, humans have enjoyed many benefits from growing this plant. Our earliest ancestors used this plant for many uses. Archaeologists found remnants of hemp cloth in Ancient China and Mesopotamia as early as 8,000 BC. This plant reached Europe in 1,200 BC. From there, this plant has spread in different countries, including the U.S.

Since the time of early civilizations, hemp is already a source of various products, ranging from:

  • Food – Hemp seeds are a rich source of nutrition and is now considered a superfood. Some cultures ate them raw while others produce flour by grinding and extract healthy oil by pressing them.
  • Fabrics – Some historians believe that hemp-derived textile as one of the earliest woven fabric used to replace animal skin for clothing.
  • Rope – Hemp fibers have been used to create some of the sturdiest and most durable ropes ever known to humans.
  • Paper – Ancient Chinese use hemp pulp for creating paper as a cost-efficient alternative to silk.
  • Herbal medicine – Ancient Chinese is also recognized as one of the first cultures to discover the health benefits of hemp. Thousands of years before the discovery of CBD hemp oil, the plant has been used to relieve pain, nausea, and other health conditions.

Discoveries of Eco-Friendly Hemp-Based Materials

Aside from the many uses of hemp, scientists and environmental advocates are exploring the plant for creating renewable resources. Almost every part of this crop can be converted into eco-friendly materials for preserving our health and the planet. Here are some substances derived from this plant that can help save the environment:

  • Timber and paper

As the world faces deforestation at alarming levels, researchers have discovered hemp products which can replace many of the tree-derived materials we are using now such as:

  • Timber – Scientists have found a wood replacement from the fibers from this plant. These boards can be used for many construction materials such as flooring, roofing, and insulation.
  • Paper – As mentioned earlier, we can produce paper from the fabrics of this plant.
  • Bioplastic

While plastic has many uses, it is among the world’s worst pollutants. These materials need 1,000 years to decompose in landfills. Thanks to the versatility of hemp fibers, scientists have found a way to convert them into fully biodegradable plastics. This hemp product can decompose only within five years. What’s more, bioplastics made from this plant can be 2.5 stronger than the plastics we use today.

  • Fossil Fuels

Researchers can now two types of eco-friendly and sustainable fuels produced from oils from hemp – biodiesel extracted from the plant’s seed oil, and ethanol or methanol from its fermented stalks. Hemp oil is the only alternative fuel that can be used to run unmodified diesel engines. Making it a more energy-efficient, more affordable, and more sustainable than traditional fuel.

  • Hempcrete

Here is another remarkable discovery – science has discovered the production of hempcrete, a natural material that can replace concrete. Hempcrete is seven times lighter and gives more efficient insulation, heat regulation, and fire resistance than concrete.

While we focus on countless medical wonders of CBD hemp oil, it’s high time to give an equal amount of attention to numerous contributions of hemp-derived materials in saving our planet.

Wisconsin Gov Signs Bill Making Hemp Program Permanent

Wisconsin Hemp Program - Permanent

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers signed into law a bipartisan bill on Tuesday, Nov 26, that will make the state’s 2018 hemp-growing program permanent.

In a statement, the Democratic governor expressed his delight with the signing of the new law.

From textiles, to recycling and bioplastics, to industrial materials, hemp provides endless opportunities to Wisconsin farmers who are looking for new markets to enter, which is why interest in growing and producing hemp in Wisconsin has skyrocketed in the last year,” Gov. Evers shared.

I was proud to sign this collaborative, bipartisan bill into law today to ensure the continued success of our hemp program and the many new opportunities hemp provides to Wisconsin farmers,” he added.

Hemp-Growing Program in Wisconsin

Established in November 2017 via the 2017 Wisconsin Act 100, Wisconsin’s industrial hemp pilot program allows Wisconsin farmers to grow hemp legally for the first time in 60 years. This was then followed by the official launch of the state pilot program in 2018 by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

During its first year, the Wisconsin’s program has shown a record of 347 people who applied for licenses to grow or process hemp and 247 licenses issued to grow hemp. For 2019, the program has witnessed a significant increase in records, receiving a total of 2,227 applications to grow or process hemp and issuing 1,308 licenses to grow hemp and 618 licenses to process hemp.

To date, although the state’s hemp industry still scores shorter compared to other cash crops, many believe that the hemp’s strong growth potential promises tremendous opportunities to local farmers.

This is still an emerging industry,” said one of the bill’s co-sponsors, Republican Rep. Tony Kurtz in a statement. “Still, I believe that Wisconsin can be a leader in hemp production.”

With the new bill, significant changes, mostly technical, will be made to bring the state’s hemp program more in line with the 2018 farm bill. This includes the change in state law to allow for a THC concentration of up to .03% in the bloodstream for people who may be using legal CBD products.

This makes Wisconsin the latest addition to the six other states that have similar laws that allow people to legally have trace amounts of THC in their blood.

To date, although the hemp program has bipartisan support, the position of medical marijuana legalization, as well as the decriminalization of the use of small amounts of cannabis, remains to be unsuccessful in the state.

CBD Edibles for Anxiety

Experiencing anxiety in everyday living is considered normal, however, if symptoms are starting to bug you off, it can lead to constant stress and excessive worrying. For some people, anxiety becomes a huge problem as it triggers physical symptoms like increased heart rate, sweating, trembling, feeling weak and trouble concentrating.

Aside from seeking professional help, you can also take cannabidiol to ease the symptoms and make yourself calm.

How CBD Helps With Anxiety

There are studies and researches that claim the promising ability of cannabis in relieving a generalized anxiety disorder. For instance, a 2010 study found out that cannabidiol revealed changes in blood flow to the regions in the brain linked to feelings of anxiety. Moreover, cannabidiol, which is an active compound in marijuana, reduces symptoms linked to post-traumatic stress and anxiety-provoked sleep disorder in children.

Although more tests are needed to prove the effectiveness of CBD in easing anxiety symptoms, researchers are positive that this compound can be an alternative ‘treatment.’

Why Choose CBD Edibles

Taking CBD edibles is like eating candies and chocolates because these CBD products contain different flavors. It can be in the form of gummy bears, brownies, cakes, candies, chocolates, and more.

A research conducted in 2016 suggests that negative health effects can be associated with smoking cannabis. Smoking cannabis can lead to addiction, according to research because a person experiences ease in anxiety. Edibles, by far, are completely safe to take and have fixed dosing. Depending on the amount consumed, it can provide just the right effect on a person.

CBD Effects

When consumed or used, cannabidiol can instantly provide relaxation as it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is the who regulates different functions such as sleep, pain, emotions, and appetite.

People who tried cannabidiol for the first time can attest to how effective it is in enhancing sleep, reducing stress levels, and basically improving one’s quality of life.

Best CBD Edibles For Anxiety

With the popularity of cannabidiol among adults, the demand increases. Manufacturers cater to this demand and produce new products for safe consumption. If you search online, you can easily find a wide selection of CBD edibles. Given this vast market, you need to be careful about buying products because not all of these promise sound results.

For anxiety relief, here are the best six cannabidiol edibles you can buy.

Kushly CBD Gummies ($55)

If you are after a tasty CBD edible, the Kushly CBD gummies are your best bet. Every gummy contains 30mg of cannabidiol and it gives a natural fruity taste. Recommended dosing is up to two gummies per day.

 

The best thing about this product is, it is free from the THC content, which is the compound opposite CBD. THC provides psychoactive effects linked to being ‘high.’ With Kushly CBD Gummies, you can instantly get the goodness of CBD minus the high sensation.

CBDistillery ($60)

Looking for vegan CBD edibles? The search is over because the CBDistillery is 100% vegan and GMO-free. These are flavored gummies in grape, cane juice, and organic concentrate. Derived from US-grown cannabis, every piece of gummy is sure to provide quality results. Each CBD edible contains 30mg of cannabidiol, a good dose for daily consumption.

Relax Bears CBD Daily Dose Gummie ($55)

For mood regulation, the Relax Bears CBD Daily Dose Gummie is considered a holy grail. Each container contains 30 gummies with 10mg cannabidiol. Specially made for anxiety, it provides instant relief for increased heart rate, nervousness, panic attacks, and fatigue.

Hemp Bombs, Original Gummies ($99.99)

Post Malone Partners with Sherbinskis, Brings Hemp Pre-Rolls

Post Malone Partners with Sherbinskis

Singer/rapper Post Malone has teamed up with Sherbinskis – cannabis lifestyle company owned by Mario Guzman – to launch a pre-roll collection. Besides Sherbinskis, the Shaboink owner also partnered with Icon Farms to bring pre-rolls to the public.

The joint partnership of these three groups focused on launching all-American grown hemp goods on the market, states Billboard. The venture will offer the public with two terpene flavors, including Posty OG from Shaboink and Gelato from Sherbinskis.

Brief Background

Forbes states that these products were made from American-grown hemp, terpenes, and water, making it a potent and natural creation compared to other goods on the market. Based on the article of Forbes, butadiene, cadmium, and lead are typically found in American-made cigarettes, making the hemp pre-rolls a welcome addition.

To ensure that the pre-rolls meet industry benchmarks and stand out from competitors, the press release details that these goods have undergone laboratory testing. These are also “free of pesticides, mold and microbiological agents, residual solvents and heavy metals,” report Billboard.

Icon Farms is responsible for manufacturing the pre-rolls, with extensive experience in tobacco production and American-grown hemp cultivation. Icon Farms is known for its best manufacturing processes and practices, as well as its family-owned business in the country.

On the other hand, Sherbinskis specializes in providing customers with a wide range of marijuana goods, with products being sold at high-end stores both in New York and Beverly Hill, notes Billboard.

Happy Partnership

Post Malone is happy to bring this offering to the market, saying that “it’s a product I personally love and know my fans will too.” The artist further states that his respective partners in the industry “are best in class and so is this product. The terpene flavors are great, and you can’t beat an all-natural pre-roll,” reports Forbes.

In the same way, both Sherbinskis and Icon Farms shared their thoughts on the partnership. According to Guzman, watching the “pre-rolls come off the production line” was a life-changing experience.

Greenlane will be responsible for distributing the line of products, with plans of being made available at more than 7,000 smoking stores and 11,000 regional chain stores, says Billboard. Last July 17, the Shaboink and Sherbinskis pre-rolls have been launched in Las Vegas at the CHAMPS trade show.

The hemp pre-rolls are sold in co-branded packs, with Guzman pointing out that the products are made with less than 0.3% of THC, states High Snobiety.
