products are extremely versatile and durable and are around us in our everyday
lives. You may not even realize that the
Patagonia jacket you are wearing is made of hemp fabric. How about your jewelry?
That cute little rope on your bead necklace could surely be made from hemp. You know the rope you use to make your kids rope swing, that could also be made from hemp. Have you ever heard of hempcrete? That’s right! That new insulation that is keeping the electric bill down, that is made from hemp!
When using CBD hemp oil, it is feeding our
endocannabinoid system that regulates and balances our neurological and immune
systems and brings our body back into homeostasis. You will be surprised how beneficial this
miracle plant is when you look at Echo Connection.
Another way to receive these benefits is to consume hemp infused beverages or edibles. The benefits of hemp oil are so safe and beneficial to us that even babies can use it. You will find hemp infused lotion all the way to hemp infused milk for babies.
Hemp makeup and body products are excellent for our skin, because hemp oil is naturally rich with minerals, zinc, magnesium, calcium, omega-3, omega-6, vitamins B1, B2 and D, amino acids and the list goes on.
The thing about the hemp plant is not just one part of it is used, the whole plant is used for different things. This plant produces many products from its fibrous parts as well. The tensile strength of the fibers of this plant are very strong and durable. This makes it great for making hemp rope, hemp fabric, hempcrete, and hemp insulation, just to mention a few.
I come from a farming family and my first thought was, this is a great product for the farmers. Then I read some history and found some interesting facts. Our government outlawed the farming of hemp because it was a big competitor when it came to the paper business and the old saying
rang true at that time.
In order to convince the public that hemp was bad, they demonized hemp by telling people that it would make them go insane and they came out with the short film “Reefer Madness”, showing how crazy people get from hemp. When in all reality, it was just a big coverup so the paper moguls that owned hundreds of thousands of acres of trees could make more money.
In turn, that not only halted a great opportunity for hemp farmers in the USA to prosper, but hemp and hemp products had to be imported, making them more expensive and much harder to get.
The biggest travesty of all, is it gave hemp a stigma that has taken decades to shed. Fortunately, here in the USA we are finally waking up and there is a huge tidal wave that is pushing to bring hemp farming and local grown and domestic-made hemp products to the USA again.
There are reputable organizations and companies using and promoting hemp products everywhere. The government lobbyists and consumer groups are pushing hard to get laws passed to ease access to hemp for the manufacturing of hemp products.
I have become infatuated with hemp products and have fallen in love with hemp clothing because the more you wash it, the softer it gets. Another benefit to the hemp fiber is that it wicks away moisture, is anti-microbial, resistant to mold and mildew and doesn’t retain odor. I have a hemp collar for my fur baby just for those reasons.
I can go on and on about how great hemp is, not only for our environment, but for our health as well. I wouldn’t be doing my fellow coffee drinkers justice if I didn’t let you know how beneficial the hemp infused coffee is. Besides from being delicious and healthy with all the vitamins and minerals that come from the hemp plant, it makes it an easy way to get your daily supplements. Who doesn’t have a cup of Joe before leaving the house?
The latest and possibly the greatest is the hemp movement in the veteran community. These men and women have fought and risked their lives so we can live free and have a free enterprise economy for products like hemp. We thank you for your service.
I’m excited to see people catching on to the hemp lifestyle and becoming hempsters and that education on hemp is showing people that they are two different plants with two different purposes.
If you haven’t already, go out and try a hemp product. You just might get caught up in the craze and become a hempster yourself. We hope you leave informed and educated about the world of hemp.
