The Entourage Effect

The Entourage Effect

Cold Pressed CBD

Cold Pressed CBD

The cold-pressed method of extracting CBD from the cannabis plant is a natural alternative to the more volatile extraction process used by most CBD producers. Cold-pressed CBD contains all the elements of the hemp plant which offers the best Entourage Effect.

During the cold-pressed extraction process, the plant is passed through a press, squeezing out the organic extract. This ensure that all of the vitamins, omegas, nutrients and phytonutrients remain in the finished product.

The reason behind the more widely used extraction processes (such as co2 and Alcohol extraction) is purely down to maximising profits and scale at the detriment of a more natural product.

The Hemp Economy

The Hemp Economy

Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant. The main differentiating factor between cannabis and hemp is its very low THC content. As hemp only contains trace amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid it is legal in many places throughout the world. Like cannabis, there are many strains of hemp containing different cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Some produce more seeds whilst others have been bred for their fibres.

Hemp is one of the most versatile plants in the plant kingdom. It is used to produce the following;

Food

The seeds from hemp are high in protein, fat, fibre, B vitamins and iron. They can be turned into hemp milk, hemp oil or eaten raw. Also the leaves, though not as nutritional, can be consumed in salads or pressed to make hemp juice. 

Clothing

Hemp fabrics are made from the fibres found on the stalks of the hemp plant. The fabric surpasses cotton and other textiles by most metrics whilst still maintaining a very similar texture to cotton. Clothes made from hemp tend to last 3 times as long as clothes made from cotton. 

Building materials

Hemp blocks, made with hemp and lime, have been used as an insulating material for construction. They are not strong enough to be used for structural elements however they are becoming a popular choice for insulation.

Paper

Unfortunately, although hemp paper is a more sustainable option, it is currently cost prohibitive at four to five times the production cost as paper from wood. We hope to see more innovation from the industry to drive costs down so that we can use a paper that doesn’t require the use of toxic bleaching or as many chemicals as wood pulp paper whilst helping to prevent deforestation.

Biofuels 

Hempoline is a biodiesel made from the oil in hemp seeds. Hemp ingests CO2 faster than trees and also returns 70% of its nutrients back into the soil. This means that hemp requires less fertiliser and is a great renewable resource crop.

CBD production

Though hemp has lower concentrations of THC, it does produce another useful cannabinoid called cannabidiol (CBD). It can be consumed in a number of ways and you can try our very own CBD gummies by heading to our online shop.

How can hemp help the economy and why should it happen?

We believe that a hemp economy is a sustainable economy. In recent decades, the effects of unsustainable practises have accelerated climate change. Hemp can serve more than 2500 purposes and poses a much more sustainable alternative to other traditional crops. Hemp;

  • Returns higher amounts of nutrients to the ground
  • Uses less water than traditional crops
  • Produces higher yields from the same space
  • Naturally resistant to pests, diseases and fungus
  • Hemp grows much faster which can increase profit for farmers
  • Can help address deforestation
Why do people use CBD for skin care?

Why do people use CBD for skin care?

The reason behind CBDs vast array of benefits is our Endocannabinoid System. The ECS is responsible for regulating and balancing many processes in the body. These include pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and the reproductive function. More on the ECS here.

So why is CBD good for the skin?

Check out this research published in December 2019 here and here. While research is still fairly limited, CBD is generally considered safe to use and the Food Standard Agency in the UK offers consumer advice on their website here. You can also find information

CBD VS. Hemp Seed Oil

Even though hemp seed oil and CBD come from the same plant, they do both have their own benefits. CBD tends to be found predominantly from the flower of the plant and the Hemp Seed Oil from the seeds. We have highlighted some of the benefits of CBD above but it’s the hemp seed oil thats rich in vitamins and omegas. In fact, hemp seed oil contains 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids. This is the height in the entire plant kingdom.

Our products are 100% Natural 100% Vegan
