One of the newest uses of hemp is as a building material. Hemp may be used in the production of pressed or composite desks. As a result of sticking together (under pressure) the fibrous stems of hemp, a desk is produced, much more flexible and durable than a hard wood. Hemp has long, hard wood being the ideal source for the pressed desks.
The use of hemp in construction is a new concept. The French archeologists have discovered bridges that were built using the method of mineralizing hemp stalks into permanent cement. This process does not involve any synthetic chemicals and results in a material that acts as a filler in construction. It has become more popular under its name Isochanvre in France, it may be used as a gypsum board, heat and noise insulation, it is characterized by its long life.
An interesting use of hemp in industry is the production of plastics. Many plastics can be made of high-cellulose hemp (the inner core of the stem).
The hemp seed oil has many uses in products such as varnishes, lubricants, cosmetics and many more.
In the past, the focus was on clinical studies of cannabinoids in the treatment of chronic pains and disorders of the nervous system, but today the researchers are investigating their effects in the treatment of cancer and diseases related to immune system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. Cannabinoids are believed to have great potential to significantly alleviate the symptoms of chronic inflammatory bowel disease. They also help with the absorption of air- fluid deposits in the meninges in postoperative and post-traumatic conditions. Studies show that cannabinoids may inhibit the growth of cancer cells, prevent from the formation of new cancer cells or eliminate the existing ones.
No. CBD is one of many natural compounds included in the hemp oil. The extract from the hemp oil used in the hemp oil contains only the naturally occurring component of CBD hemp oil, which is part of the total Phyto cannabinoid content. It does not contain any purified (natural nor synthetic) CBD oil. This is why the hemp oil provides the full specter of natural phytocannabinoid compounds included in the hemp oil, not in the purified CBD oil.
Every body is different and because of that active substances may work differently. The advantages of using our products are as follows: healthy-looking skin and a shiny coat, better condition of the hips and joints, greater mobility and comfort. Our products help in the proper functioning of the cardiovascular and immune system. They improve the digestion processes and help to maintain proper body mass. The cannabinoid content does not cause any euphoric or lethargic states in dogs.
The oil that we used is pressed from cannabis sativa seeds. It is a technical type of hemp which seeds do not include any psychoactive substances. So there is no need to worry about any altered states of consciousness in dogs.
Hemp seeds should be used for health reasons. The studies published in October 2018 in the Food Chemistry magazine indicate that antioxidants included in hemp seeds help to eliminate oxidative stress and protect the cells from their damage. Authors of the article say that hemp seeds should be recognized as functional food due to their good impact on health.
Allergic reactions to cannabis seeds are not common, they appear rather rarely.
According to Michigan Medicine, the body tolerates cannabis seeds with no negative side effects. In fact, the side effects of hemp seeds due to their nutrients can be positive. Good fats included in hemp oils may help to decrease a risk of heart diseases. Sometimes they may affect the results of medicines but according to Michigan Medicine, no interactions between hemp seeds and medicines have been observed. Another possible side effect of cannabis seeds, especially when administered in excessive amount, may be diarrhea.
Gamma linolenic acid belongs to the group of so-called essential fatty acids. Its indispensability lies in the fact that the body cannot produce this acid itself, it can only be obtained from food products. This group of substances is also called polyunsaturated fatty acids or vitamin F. They are especially important for the body’s regulatory processes, the proper functioning of cell walls, the circulatory system and immunity. They have an antioxidant effect.
The lack of unsaturated fatty acids in the body may result in poorer quality of the skin, nails and hair. It can also lead to a decrease in the body’s resistance and nervous disorders.
Unlike other fatty acids, stearic acid does not increase the level of cholesterol in the blood, on the contrary – it gently reduces it. The effect of stearic acid on blood cholesterol is far more beneficial than that of trans-unsaturated fatty acids. Acid-rich fats slightly reduce postprandial lipemia (the level of fat in the blood after a meal). Moreover, the fibrinolytic activity is not increased compared to other saturated or trans-unsaturated fatty acids. Thus, stearic acid works much better in the metabolic process than trans-unsaturated fatty acids. So far, no other effects of stearic acid have been demonstrated, e.g. on positive diabetes treatment, anti-inflammatory effects, impact on blood pressure, etc., but some data are very optimistic.
Most of the calories in hemp seeds come from unsaturated fats. Hemp oil is rich in essential fatty acids – fats that your pet needs because the body cannot produce them on its own. These include linoleic acid, which is an omega 6 fatty acid, and alpha-linolenic acid, an omega 3 fatty acid. Hemp seeds also contain a rarer type of omega 6 fat called gamma-linolenic acid, which has anti- inflammatory properties.
Unlike many other plant products, the protein in hemp seeds provides all nine essential amino acids, so the seed is considered a wholesome source of protein. In addition to the amino acid content, the protein in hemp seeds is also easy to digest. Hemp seeds are the best way to increase the protein content.
These tiny seeds are full of proteins, healthy fats, fiber, many vitamins and mineral ingredients. In fact, marijuana is more nutritious than any other plant-based food.
The hemp seed content outweighs the nutritional value of many other nuts and seeds. According to the USDA (US Department of Agriculture), 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds provide about 10 grams of protein, 15 grams of healthy omega-rich fats, and 3 grams of carbohydrate. The nutrient profile of hemp seeds also includes magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, calcium, and fiber. In addition, hemp seed has been recognized as a source of various antioxidants, including polyphenols, flavonoids and flavanols.
YES! Hemp seed products are legal in more than 35 countries around the world, including the Czech Republic and the EU, UK, US, Canada … Hemp seeds, hemp seed oil and cannabis derivatives can be used legally in the above-mentioned countries.
Hemp seeds are derived from the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. This type of hemp is grown for industrial and nutritional purposes. The seeds of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant do not contain THC and therefore have no psychoactive effects.
According to studies of March 2018, published in the Phytochemistry Reviews magazine, hemp seed was one of the five seeds of ancient China. They were an important part of food in China until the 10th century. The nutritional value of hemp seeds has been appreciated by other cultures of the Old World.
Now they have been rediscovered as a rich source of nutrients and phytochemicals that have beneficial effects on health.
No. Although both are Cannabis Sativa. Industrial hemp is a type of Cannabis Sativa plant which is not psychoactive and does not include THC. Hemp seeds have no use as a drug, only as a comprehensive source of nutrients.
Hemp is grown in many countries all over the world: in the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Turkey, Poland, Portugal, Ukraine, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Japan, India, Korea, Russia, Australia and New Zealand.
Hemp requires very little fertilizer. They grow properly almost everywhere. Pest resistant. The hemp takes root very deeply, which is good for the soil, and when the hemp leaves fall, the minerals and nitrogen return to the soil. Hemp is grown on the same land for 20 years – without any soil depletion.
Using less fertilizer and agricultural chemicals is good for two reasons:
1. This is associated with lower costs and less manpower.
2. Many agricultural chemicals are hazardous to health and the environment – the less they are used, the better.
