Why grow hemp?
Industrial hemp is valued for its benefits to the human body and its wide range of applications. All parts of this unique plant can be used for various purposes.
Hemp inflorescences are rich in essential oils suitable for aromatherapy, cosmetics, and beer making. You can also drink hemp flower tea. Essential oils are also suitable as insect repellents. Hemp flowers also contain CBD extract, which has great benefits to the human body and is therefore widely used in medicine. CBD can have a positive effect on the human nervous system, act as a natural antidepressant, relieve pain, fight nausea, reduce inflammation, fight neurodegenerative diseases, and help fight cancer cells.
The stem, which is used for fiber production, is very widely used. The fiber is used in the automotive industry, for insulation materials, geotextiles, construction, furniture, as well as in agriculture.
Seeds, which have a very high nutritional value, are also used for seasoning food. The seeds are used to make hemp milk, beer, cheese, bread, chewing gum, and other products. They are also used to extract oil, which is green and rich in iodine. Hemp oil has the ideal ratio of omega acids for the human body, which is why the oil is often used with food. It is also widely used in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. After squeezing hemp oil, we are left with pellets, which are perfect for feeding cattle, sheep, birds. The pellets contain 92% dry matter: plant-based protein, fats, fiber, ash, methionine, cystine, threonine, lysine. Hemp pellets are an alternative to soybean meals. Feeding livestock with hemp pellets will result in the same growth and carcass rates as by feeding with soybean meals. Hemp pellets are a source of hemp protein, which is a pure source of protein and fiber and consists of 18 amino acids. Hemp protein is used with food and is great for weight loss diets. It is allergy-friendly, gluten-free and is suitable and necessary for vegans and vegetarians.
