Item of the Week!
This week’s item is Cannabis sativa! A.K.A… HEMP!!
Derived from a cannabis plant, magically it is transformed to provide us with a plethora of everday uses. It is durable, edible, industrial, usable!! So why are we still using petro??
Now, there is a considerable difference between Cannabis sativa (industrial uses) and recreational or medicinal cannabis – from size in plant once it reaches maturity (usability) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels. Although there is THC found in the sativa strand it is not enough to produce any sort of chemical reaction.
Hemp was originally grown in Asia and parts of Africa, but it’s cultivated on just about every continent nowadays. In Japan, hemp is predominately used for paper and fiber — while other countries like South America make an abundance of hemp seed oil.
Unfortunately, the United States is slow in it’s efforts to ‘reduce, reuse, recyle’ and we are still unable to grow this miracle plant!! (Unless you’re under their jurisdiction and have a license.)
Personally I love hemp (if you couldn’t tell *wink*) and have found it to be a huge benefactor. You can check out my hemp jewelry collection on Facebook!
You don’t have to be ‘granola’ to enjoy hemp. Familiarize yourself with this God-given plant and incorporate it into your daily life. I’m sure you’ll say to yourself, “Why wasn’t I usin’ this before?!”
