Hennep & CBD Industry

What is industrial hemp?

Industrial hemp may be a related species, but it should not be confused with the cannabis plant. Industrial hemp naturally has a high percentage of CBD and only a small amount (<o.o5) of THC. (THC is the ingredient responsible for a high / stoned effect.) Industrial hemp is a 1 year old plant that has been cultivated by mankind as an arable crop for centuries and is used in many sectors. The reason people grow hemp is that this plant has many excellent properties and a good reputation from both a nutritional and an environmental point of view. Hemp has many uses: hemp is used in food supplements, for grain-free animal feed, hemp fibers (which are very strong) are used in the making of car bodies. Hemp seed oil is pressed from the hemp seeds.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol or while CBD is one of the many cannabinoids (substances) that naturally occur in industrial hemp. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. (This means that the substance does not have a high or stoned effect) For example, there are various products for sale that contain CBD, the most famous being CBD oil and capsules. There are also CBD care creams and specially developed CBD oil for pets. Because the demand for CBD has increased, there will be more and more products for sale that contain CBD in the future. In recent years, CBD has been continuously researched and is nowadays accepted as a dietary supplement to support overall health. As a result, no health claims about CBD may be made under EU law. CBD is not a medicine, does not prevent disease, does not treat or cure disease, nor is it a substitute for a healthy diet. We therefore recommend that you do your own research into its properties. If you are using medication, always consult your doctor or pharmacist first.
