Hemp as a so-called industrial plant requires a small amount of environmentally straining fertiliser and sprays, and is – for this and other reasons – a popular crop plant. Many parts of the hemp plants can be sensibly used, so growing hemp as crop also makes sense from a sustainability perspective.
The purely medicinal use of the hemp plant is thousands of years old, and has been practiced for as long as 5000 years according to folklore. The fields of application for the hemp plant are diverse and practical. The hemp plant is therefore officially one of the oldest cultivated plants, and can be used in many different aspects of daily life.
Industrial hemp is used to produce clothing as well as fuel, foods and medicines. The material is widely applicable. Aside from CBD, industrial hemp contains many substances – most recently 500 have been counted. Industrial hemp contains terpenes, flavnoids and other plants substances including co-called phytocannabinoids, which include cannabidiol (CBD).
The most commonly known phytocannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinols (THC), cannabidiols (CBDs), cannabinols (CBNs) and cannabigerols (CBGs). The psychoactive or intoxicating part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabiol, which is only found up to 0,2% inside our products.
