“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
The WHO definition of “health”

Hemp – smart food

Once widely banned, hemp is now undergoing a renaissance – and is taking the health and lifestyle industry by storm. More and more people are turning to industrial hemp products to provide their bodies with nourishment: high-quality protein, calcium, iron, omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, and vitamins and key minerals.

Moreover, beyond its rich composition of nutrients, hemp can help consumers enjoy sufficient sleep, greater physical mobility, and a balanced lifestyle – all key to maintaining good health. 

As part of a balanced diet or as a dietary supplement, organic hemp seed oil can also contribute to cardiovascular health and normal immune system function, and help regulate cholesterol and blood sugar. *

Maintaining the right balance

The body is built to naturally maintain its health. That is the mission of over 35 trillion cells working together to ensure a dynamic equilibrium in the major organs and nervous system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a role in regulating many aspects of our physiology – including blood pressure, heart rate and circulation, circadian rhythm, immune system function, body temperature, and hormone levels. The ECS is part of the central nervous system, and helps harmonise the body.

The phytocannabinoid compounds found in hemp plants mimic the effects of the body’s own endocannabinoids – stimulating natural rhythms to help maintain inner equilibrium.

Stressful periods can overwhelm the ECS, resulting in noticeable imbalances and ill-effects, such as sleep disorders, pains, cramps or gastrointestinal problems. Plant-derived cannabinoids help restore the body’s natural harmony.

Hemp in medicine

Many of our ancestors knew and harnessed the health benefits of hemp. Today, it has returned to the spotlight as the focus of recent research. A number of studies, publications and personal experiences highlight the physiological effects of the hemp plant’s valuable ingredients.

Particularly the cannabinoids THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), and CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol) and CBN (cannabinol) have drawn much attention – due to their relaxing, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, cramp-relieving and anxiety-reducing properties.

More information on the clinical benefits of cannabinoids, including for epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease and neurodermatitis, are available here.
