CBD: a superfood that is both healthy and ecological

CBD is 100% natural when used alone, but also when combined with other ingredients that are also plant-based. It is a product that is generally very healthy and fits perfectly into your daily life and diet. You can therefore consume it for its benefits, which are becoming increasingly well known: soothing, relaxation, elimination of stress and tension, and many others. However, it is also often considered a superfood that provides nutrients to your body. The hemp from which CBD is extracted is easy to produce and non-polluting. It can be used for many more things than just getting CBD!

How to produce CBD

It is important to distinguish between hemp, which is a plant, and CBD, which is an active ingredient contained in it. Indeed, they are not the same thing and it is important not to confuse them. They can be bought alone or combined with other ingredients. While one is directly a cultivable plant that must be fully processed to be used, the other is contained only in a specific part of the plant.

The difference between hemp and CBD

Hemp is a plant with many varieties and species. It can be produced and then processed for use in many different industries. As for CBD, it is contained directly in this plant, and more precisely on the flowers, thus only the female plants. Thus, hemp has a new utility since the rise of CBD in Europe.

To go further, CBD comes from particular species and varieties because where CBD is located, there are also other cannabinoids like THC which is considered a drug. This is why species with low THC but high CBD content are recommended for this type of production. Conversely for certain uses, other varieties will be chosen for example for their higher yield.

The 3 methods of CBD cultivation

CBD can be grown in 3 methods, or rather the production of hemp to obtain CBD can be done in 3 different ways. First of all, the most natural way is to plant outdoors, i.e. outdoors. This allows you to take advantage of the climatic elements such as rain, wind, soil and sun, making it a cheap and natural method. However, the yield will be lower and it is difficult to control the plants. They may also be attacked by pests.

Then there is indoor and greenhouse production. Both methods are more expensive, especially indoors, but more effective and controllable. In the greenhouse, you still get the benefit of the soil and the sun, but you are protected from pests. Indoors, it is easier to control every detail, such as light, to get tailor-made plantings. However, many natural resources must be used.

Other uses of hemp

The productions of hemp allow to obtain CBD, but also to supply other industries. Firstly, there is food where CBD and hemp are sometimes combined. We can mention CBD-enriched hemp oil, cereal bars or food supplements. In cosmetics too we find products with both or only hemp or CBD, such as in a cream, a serum or a hair care product.

On the other hand, it is possible to find this plant alone in totally different products. For example, in the textile industry it is a plant used to create fabric. In this way, the clothes will be natural and environmentally friendly. Of course, above all, the production of hemp and the method of making the clothes must also be natural and without impact to the planet.

Another less common use of hemp is its transformation into a material similar to plastic. Since it is a plant with a lot of fibre, this makes it an ideal alternative for creating products that are usually made of plastic. This new material is biodegradable, and therefore much more environmentally friendly!

What are the benefits of CBD and hemp?

Hemp and CBD can be considered as superfoods. They have many benefits on the body, whether you consume them separately or together. Today it is possible to find them just about everywhere, or use them as food supplements to boost your metabolism. Very natural in their manufacturing methods, but also through their tastes, it is easy to integrate them with other ingredients.

The natural effects of CBD

CBD mainly has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action. It is what allows you to relieve yourself of pain, calm your mind and generally feel better. By using it, you will easily improve your well-being. Since it is a cannabinoid molecule, it has no other benefits because it will move directly into your body through your bloodstream. It is by binding to specific receptors that it will take effect.

Thanks to European and French legislation, commercial CBD contains less than 0.2% THC, so you won't have any side effects when using CBD. You can choose directly from raw products such as oil, flowers, wax, pollen or resin, as well as CBD-based derivatives.

The nutritional value of hemp

Hemp has particularly interesting nutritional properties. It contains all nine of the body's essential amino acids, is rich in protein, fatty acids and vitamins. All these nutrients make it easier for you to reach the recommended daily allowance.

Hence, hemp can be considered a natural superfood suitable for almost any diet. You can consume it in a very pure form such as flour, oil or protein powder, as well as combined with other ingredients. Its neutral taste allows it to be hidden without spoiling the flavours in your recipes. It is therefore possible to incorporate it into your everyday diet and benefit from its properties easily.

Once you get the hang of distinguishing CBD and hemp, you can move towards one, the other or both to incorporate into your diet. They can both meet your needs, depending on your current issues. Either way, they are natural, easy to consume and environmentally friendly products that we recommend you use to promote daily wellness!
