Hemp is an extremely versatile plant. Practically, it can be used whole, from the peduncle to the seed. Some sources list up to 25,000 products that can be made from this magical plant. For thousands of years, hemp has been grown mainly for its solid fibers, nutritious seeds, and also as an important part of folk medicine. However, farmers also grew hemp to clean the soil that was contaminated. This is because hemp removes heavy metals and radioactive toxins from polluted soil through a process called phytoremediation. In the process, fast-growing hemp roots absorb contaminants and are even able to convert toxins into other harmless substances. Guess what crop was subsequently sown to remove toxins from the soil after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986? Yes, you guessed it was hemp.
Why should this information influence your decision when choosing CBD oil?
You don't need to have a toxic power plant next to the hemp field to get contaminated. Many CBD oil manufacturers declare that they do not use artificial fertilizers to grow hemp. But the fact is that the land on which they grow can be contaminated with pesticides and heavy metals from the past, which can impair the purity of your CBD oil.
In the European Union, it is allowed to grow around seventy varieties of industrial hemp. This is an extremely versatile plant that can be processed almost entirely. We can make thousands of products from it. For example, the stem is used in construction as an insulating material for construction or for the production of hemp concrete, the so-called hemcrete. Few people know that hemp constructions have a negative carbon footprint. Plant tops are used to extract cannabinoids and other health-promoting substances. Hemp seeds are used in various forms, especially in the food industry or as animal feed. They are eaten either directly or peeled. They have a high and almost ideal ratio of unsaturated omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids and are often further processed into hemp oil, protein, flour and other products.
As a family organic farm, we decided in 2017 to swim into uncharted waters and out of curiosity and started growing technical hemp in eastern Slovakia. After the initial testing, the French varieties that provide the most active substances for our organism have proven themselves well for us. In our fields unburdened by chemicals, we initially grow hemp for wholesalers, but thanks to the knowledge and knowledge gained, we founded our own HempBona brand this year with the finalization of the products,
under which a number of high-quality eco-products containing CBD content are hidden. In addition to oil, they also offer hemp ointment, massage emulsion, facial cosmetics, bath additive, tea or oil for animals.
What does Eco certification guarantee?
To obtain organic certification, hemp producers need to go much further than simply avoiding the use of pesticides. As with other certification programs, organic crops must meet a number of strict requirements, from soil conditions to plant processing. Pestors are subject to strict quality control procedures, plants must be constantly maintained on healthy and clean soil free of toxins and heavy metals. This is key for the hemp plant as it is prone to the absorption of toxins from the soil. ECO certification thus guarantees soil purity and safe and healthy products.
CBD made from organically grown hemp:
1. Does not contain toxins and synthetic chemicals
In order to be certified organic, a product must ensure that it has been grown or produced without the use of pesticides, synthetic fillers or genetically modified organisms.
2. has a higher nutritional value
Chemical pesticides, fertilisers and other genetically modified substances can take away its natural nutrients from the soil. Hemp grown in organic conditions is therefore richer in vitamins and minerals, which also means that CBD oil extracted from an organic plant can expose you to a wider spectrum of cannabinoids. Studies have shown that organic consumables such as products, foods and medicinal tinctures have greater health benefits than those commonly grown and processed.
3. It has a cleaner ecological footprint
Chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are incredibly demanding on the environment. The irreversible effects of unnatural substances in agriculture can have an impact on air and water quality, as well as on damage to wildlife. Organic farming helps to support environmental sustainability efforts.
Precisely because we oversee the entire growing process, we can guarantee 100% quality of our hemp. We therefore offer you our products directly from our farm, directly to your desk!
