8 Reasons To Choose Organic Hemp Flower & CBD Products
CBD has become a buzzword in the health & wellness niche, but is all CBD really healthy? Well, the answer may shock you, so read on if you want to educate yourself on hemp, CBD and wellness in general. Hemp/CBD in it's natural state is entirely healthy for you and studies have proven it's many wellness benefits. But that would be hemp in it's natural state, i.e., nature. When hemp flower farms like Dreamland Organics grow hemp, we essentially take on the role of nature and create the environment for the plant to grow. Here is where a potential problem begins. Growers who use synthetic fertilizers and synthetic pesticides turn an organic plant to something that our body does not fully recognize.
So what's the deal with organically grown hemp?
It's important to note that organic hemp is more than just a marketing term. As we know, the hemp plant contains hundreds of compounds, and CBD is but one of them. After extraction, CBD is processed and is used to create a wide variety of health products and supplements, including salves, oils, capsules, vape carts, etc. How does the word "organic" relate to hemp-derived CBD products?
1. No chemicals and contaminants:
Organically grown hemp flower is safe from any contaminants and assures users that they get the highest-quality, cleanest CBD products. When hemp is grown organically, it is free from any genetically modified substances, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, etc. Also, organic hemp buds are extracted and refined using non-synthetic and chemical-free products, thereby reducing any chance of chemical contamination. It is important to note that these synthetic chemicals and contaminants increase health issues and related complications.
2. Higher Nutrient Content:
Most people are aware that CBD helps with pain and anxiety. However, hemp nugs provide more than just pain and stress relief. Hemp has many other nutritional benefits that most people are not aware of. Organically grown hemp flower offers high level nutrition. Hemp seeds for example have over 33% plant protein. This pure plant protein is very important for building strong bones, muscles, cartilage, and skin tissue. Organic hemp is rich in healthy fatty acids, which help boost the immune system and prevent health problems. Therefore, with organic hemp, you get potent nutrients.
3. A Healthy Heart:
Organic CBD can reduce the risk of heart disease and related complications. This is because of its ability to alleviate high blood pressure. Hemp seeds are rich in the amino acid arginine, which helps produce nitric oxide in the body. This helps in managing blood pressure, blood clotting and aids in recovery after experiencing a heart attack. Studies show that CBD can also lower blood pressure. Other studies suggest organic hemp can help aid hypertension, so having hemp in your diet may reduce your risk of heart disease.
4. Healthy Skin:
CBD salves have been en vogue for years now. Hemp oil has been used in skincare due to its ability to effectively penetrate through the different layers of the skin and promote healthy skin cell growth. On top of that, organically derived hemp oil is believed to moisturize and repair dry and damaged skin. Clinical trials have highlighted that organically grown hemp oil is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6, which may help reduce severe skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. CBD has been known to be an effective acne treatment, as it can play a crucial role in lowering the production of sebum and has anti-inflammatory properties.
5. Immunity Booster:
Organic Hemp buds have an abundance of healthy acids, proteins, and other nutrients. These nutrients, along with other attributes of hemp, like anti-inflammation, play a critical role in boosting ones immunity response and helping the body fight diseases. Also organic hemp is effective in combating autoimmune diseases and conditions. By choosing organic hemp products, you get the best bang for your buck.
6. Stress And Anxiety Relief:
One of the most know hemp flower benefits is stress relief. The way hemp interacts with and impacts the nervous system and various receptors in the human brain aids in relaxation and reducing stress and anxiety. Caustic pharmaceutical drugs used to treat anxiety and stress may lead to dependence and liver damage. Organically grown hemp products offer a natural remedy without any side effects. Organic, hemp-derived CBD has been used to treat insomnia and post-traumatic stress disorder just to name a few.
7. Pain Relief:
The human body’s endocannabinoid system regulates various functions, including pain. Whether used internally or externally, hemp has an extraordinary analgesic effect. CBD impacts the endocannabinoid system and has anti-inflammatory properties, and may help relieve chronic pain. Studies show that CBD can be effective in treating the pain associated with sclerosis and arthritis. Also, hemp is rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is an effective pain-relieving agent. So basically, organically sourced hemp products can help alleviate pain, including sore joints pain, natural wear and tear of a joint, or pain associated with arthritis.
8. More Terpenes:
Finally, organic hemp flower has more flavor and terpenes. Hemp that is grown in living soil, like the artisanal hemp buds at Dreamland Organics, are allowed to express themselves naturally and produce more plant oils. This will also increase the "entourage effect", so the potency of your hemp nugs will increase when grown organically.
So is organic hemp flower really worth it? The best way to answer this is by understanding that organic hemp is cultivated in ideal growing conditions, free from chemical pesticides, fertilizers, or chemical toxins. So it follows that organic products offer a higher level of nutrition. Additionally, buying organic hemp flower and CBD products will ensure that you consume something that was cultivated and processed free from synthetic chemicals and other contaminants. You know we stress organics here at DLO, so it goes without saying that we think it's worth it. Now it's up to you to decide if you want to put some respect on your lungs and skin. The choice is yours!
