• GENERAL • The botanical name is Cannabis Sativa. Most people love it or despise it as a drug. In fact it is the most consumed drug in the world and probably the least harmful one. Hemp is much more than a drug. It is multidimensional.
First of all hemp is the name for drug free Cannabis. What is drug free? Cannabis has unique ingredients: cannabinoids, no other plants have We humans (our pets as well) have cannabinoid receptors in our bodies. We even produce endocannabinoids for healthy homeostasis. The most famous of those cannabinoids is THC (Delta 9 – tetrahydrocannabinol) giving you euphoria and softens your judgement. This molecule is the only ingredient that makes Cannabis a so called drug. Much research is conducted on THC and Cannabidiol CBD but more than 100 other cannabinoids build the health matrix of the plant.
The only difference between the illegal drug Cannabis and legal „industrial“ hemp is the amount of THC! Illegal street Cannabis has much more THC than Hippie Cannabis of the 60ties. With more than 15% THC it is definitely dangerous for teenager’s brains. Therefore unregulated street Cannabis is more hazardous than regulated Cannabis with a certain THC content.
Cannabis with 0.2% THC in the EU and 0.3% THC in the US is called drug free hemp. Except for the THC content all the other ingredients in drug free hemp are the same as in illegal Cannabis!
Did you know that next to cannabinoids Cannabis / drug free hemp has all the known amino acids including all essential proteins we humans need? Minerals, electrolytes, vitamins (even tocopherol), antioxidants as well as Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are present in the plant? However, you cannot take advantage of them, unless you do not smoke or vaporize Cannabis. This is the reason I have invented the process to press fresh juice from drug free hemp.
