Hemp is an ancient crop, perhaps even one of the first in human history: there is even evidence that it was cultivated as early as 4000 BC.
Over the centuries, Cannabis plants, born in Asia, have been used all over the world, from the Middle East to Europe and Russia. Since ancient times, Hemp fiber was the raw material par excellence for the production of paper, it was also widely used for the production of fabrics for clothing, ropes and yarns, oils, fuels, but especially for the production of food and medicinal extracts to relieve pain and cramps in the joints.
The landscape has changed over time, in the recent past, in fact, research on CBD and its new applications has suffered a major setback due to legal restrictions applied to THC and CBD regulation, often lacking.
Hemp is now emerging with dignity as a plant material with multiple uses, to be recognized as a powerful natural remedy for the health of those who consume it, who through the use of this plant can pursue the goal of combating a variety of disorders and painful states.
THC and CBD
Hemp is made of different elements and contains more than 480 active components, each of them acting in a different way on the body, among these the most known are the so called cannabinoids substances THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).
The most known one, THC, is responsible for the main psychoactive effect, it causes alterations in the mind and it is considered as a narcotic substance, for this reason it is forbidden.
CBD, the second most abundant and best known Hemp derivative, is instead a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, it is not addictive and has a wide range of therapeutic applications.
The consumption of CBD is legal in Switzerland, and as in other countries, cultivation and processing with different concentration percentages is allowed.
