Cosmetic Products Based On Hemp Begin To Be Sold In Chile

After years of research and with a strong presence in Europe, the Czech brand Annabis is introduced to the Chilean market, with a wide range of products, which transmit the multiple properties of hemp through the skin.

 

A study published in the British newspaper The Telegraph and carried out by the United Nations anti-drug office (Unodc) places Chile in the fifth country with the highest consumption of marijuana in the world. Uruguay became the first nation in the world to decriminalize the traffic, use, and cultivation of marijuana during 2013, but even so, our country leads consumption in South America.

Agricola Mercosur is one of the most important distributors in the business of the crop market. “It is necessary to have a cannabis cosmetic that has a certified medicinal value and meets high-quality standards, bring something different that is superior to what people usually know,” says Tarek Jury, director of Agricultural Mercosur.

Cannabis uses certified varieties of industrial hemp, produced naturally, whose plantations are located in the Czech Republic, where the cultivation of hemp is permitted and duly legalized for therapeutic purposes.The properties of seeds and hemp oil are one of the best natural sources of fatty acids, mainly omega 3 and omega 6; as well as the eight “essential” amino acids, which are not produced by our body and, therefore, must be incorporated into the body through food or its topical application.

These amino acids help body repair and muscle tone, in addition to delaying the aging of the skin and strengthen the nails and hair.Globally, it is already a trend, the Hollywood actress Whoopi Goldberg, just launched a few months ago in North America, a line of products based on cannabis for medical purposes. “Maya & Whoopi” that will put on the market a series of products that seek to relieve menstrual pain.

“It is important to highlight that, although the CANNABIS products are hemp-based, they do not have THC, and that is, they do not have the psychoactive effects of the plant or generate any dependence. They have been developed to maximize the active ingredients of hemp oil, achieving a line with anti-inflammatory, palliative, analgesic, antibacterial and antiviral effects, “says Viviana Gómez, Brand Manager. Other cosmetic benefits are skin miniaturization, prevention of aging, protection of the scalp and hair fiber. The brand is already in Chile, and its products can be found in pharmacies and organic stores, such as Hahnemann and Natural.

Industrial Products Of Hemp

We already made an introduction about cloth, where we tell you about the benefits it generates in its environment, its efficiency and the products derived from it in the textile, cosmetic, food industry and, of course, in construction. Now we expand the information speaking of the different materials that are obtained from it, for its application in the sector of bio construction.

Your Guide to Hemp 101

One of the known oldest crops that is domesticated is hemp. In fact, it has been used for thousands of years for cordage, textiles, and paper. Nowadays, there are some beauty products that are using hemp and people are wondering if it is safe to use and if it is even illegal. 

Well, Kentucky Hempters, will tell us everything that we need to know about hemp:

There are many different varieties of the cannabis plant. Hemp — also called industrial hemp — refers to the non-psychoactive (less than 1% THC) varieties of Cannabis sativa L. Both hemp and marijuana come from the same cannabis species, but are genetically distinct and are further distinguished by use, chemical makeup, and cultivation methods.

What Can Hemp Do?

Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. Its seeds and flowers are used in health foods, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals. See full post here…

With the use of hemp dating back 8,000 BC, I can therefore conclude that hemp is safe and legal to use. 

Hemp and The Energy Industry

With the popularity of hemp today, other industries are seeing this as a threat. For people who don’t know, hemp is known as a resilient plant. It has the ability to phytoremediation, which is known as a process of plant leaches pollutants from its soil. This will the accumulate them ands eventually metabolize them. 

Phyroremediation can perfectly on contaminated sites with arsenic, uranium, and heavy metals. This can  help clean up the West Virginia fields, which unfortunately have contaminated by gas and coal extraction.

In this article by Daniel Matthews, he talks about how hemp can affect the energy industry:

The state is taking advantage of the Federal Farm Bill, which Obama signed in 2014. The bill allows states to cultivate hemp for research and pilot programs. 23 other states have already begun growing hemp in the last two years.

“There are a lot of contaminated brownfields throughout West Virginia that people find too expensive to cleanup,” said Agri Carb’s CEO, Don Smith II. “We can be a complement to the state’s coal and gas industries by using a hemp cash crop to revitalize spoiled lands. This research should interest every post-industrial community in West Virginia to invest (with grants) and monetize what is now considered worthless.”

The idea here is not just to clean up the fields with hemp, but to use the plants for products that will bring in cash. Hemp has a wide variety of uses, including textiles, fuel, paper, food, plastics, and construction materials. See full post here..

Are Hemp And Cannabis The Same

It can be challenging to see the difference of hemp and cannabis, and I can’t blame you for that. This may be because both of them comes from just one plant. There are different factors that can affect as to when to call this plant a cannabis or a hemp. A lot of people are interchanging these two terms, which makes them very confusing. What people don’t know is that they have a separate and different connotations.

In this article by Matt Price, he talks about the difference between these two. Continue reading below to understand hemp and cannabis:

Differentiating Between Hemp and Cannabis

Unfortunately, prohibition has spurred a lack of education surrounding the cannabis plant. This has led to countless rumors about what makes hemp different from cannabis. Everything from “hemp plants are male and cannabis plants are female” to “cannabis is a drug and the other is not” are incorrectly being preached as common knowledge to unknowing bystanders. So, how are these terms supposed to be used? Let’s find out.

According to a 1976 study published by the International Association of Plant Taxonomy concluded “both hemp varieties and marijuana varieties are of the same genus, Cannabis, and the same species, Cannabis Sativa. Further, there are countless varieties that fall into further classifications within the species Cannabis Sativa.” See full post here..

So now that you have read everything about hemp and cannabis, you surely won’t be able to interchange the two of them.

Are The Natural Powers Of Cannabis Being Acknowledged

Cannabis has been the subject of ridicule for decades by the government, religious beliefs, and many propaganda. But as the world evolves, so is the inhabitants in it. Today, more and more people are being open minded as to what Cannabis can do to our bodies. The many powerful health benefits of Cannabis is now accepted by the majority. In this article by L.J Devon, he talks about the natural powers of marijuana and how they are being acknowledged by many.

Medicinal Cannabis

As cannabis knowledge spreads, hemp, marijuana and CBDs are finally getting the recognition they deserve as powerful vessels of healing. The most popularly bred component of marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), can be used for recreational purposes, to reduce pain, relieve stress and excite pleasure in the mind. There are other non-psychoactive components of cannabis that can be extracted and used for medicinal purposes too. Read full post here…

With the many health benefits that Cannabis has, I won’t be surprised if it dominates the medical industry. 

Industrial Hemp As A Sustainable Material

The most outstanding characteristics of this natural fiber are its thermal properties, since it has a conductivity of 0.041 W / m * k, acoustic, with the absorption of 0.7 and bioclimatic, since its damping causes the external temperatures, when crossing the material, soften. A piece of information for you to get an idea of the high energy saving can reduce heating consumption by up to  40 %.

It is a 100% recyclable material. Even after the demolition of a building, it can be ground and reused for the production of fiber blocks or insulating mortars.

During its production, it does not need to be purified or the use of chemical fertilizers, since it does not contain proteins (due to the absence of nutrients in its stem). It retains CO2 throughout its useful life cycle, thereby achieving buildings with neutral or negative CO2 emission values. It contributes to reducing environmental pollution, a significant factor; given that 40% of CO2 emissions are attributed to the atmosphere in the construction sector.

Bio Hemp Oil 250 Ml / 500 ML

Product Description

The hemp oil BIO 250 ml or 500 ml of Naturgreen is obtained from the first cold pressing of the hemp seed farming. It is a product to consume raw, providing a great flavor to the dressings, and it does not contain gluten.

Properties Of Hemp Oil Bio 250 Ml / 500 Ml Of Naturgreen

Hemp oil comes from hemp seed (cannabis sativa). It is one of the oils with the lowest level of saturated fats, becoming a nutritional supplement with high nutritional quality.The flavor of hemp oil is similar to nuts like walnut, being very pleasant and intense. It is a very digestive oil due to the presence of oleic acid, which also helps maintain a balance of body weight.

Among other properties, hemp oil has anti-inflammatory qualities and does not increase cholesterol. Also, it can help maintain good cardiovascular health. It is one of the oils most used for its composition from fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6.

Properties In Its Constructive Application

In this series of technical reports on natural insulators, we will introduce concepts related to the thermal behavior of the different isolations. With it, we can know the capacity of the material to let out the internal heat. The higher the thermal conductivity, the more heat we will lose. For example, the known rock wool insulation has a thermal conductivity very similar to that of hemp, precisely between 0.034 and 0.041 W / m * K.

 The acoustic absorption capacity of hemp is very high (0.7 out of 1), thanks to its density and porosity. What is achieved by absorption is to transform a large part of the sound energy that passes through it? If it reflected, the sound would stay in the

Stay, as it happens with thermal insulating materials of closed pore synthesis, such as expanded or extruded polystyrene, or polyurethane, being its acoustic result inferior, due to the null acoustic absorption of these materials.

The sound energy penetrates the article only to a certain depth, from which it would not be necessary to provide further thickness, but if the thickness is not adequate, absorption possibilities will be lost. Depending on the use of the space we can estimate the sound that will be produced in it, so we will choose the thickness of the hemp material to achieve the desired acoustic absorption.

Commercial Materials Based On Hemp Fibers

From the hemp fibers, numerous and varied products destined to the construction are obtained. The most common outcome is hemp blankets, from which we can find a large number of companies both distributors and producers of their material. But there are also other hemp-based building materials such as lime and hemp insulating mortars, bulk hemp wool or rigid insulating boards among others. For the description of the latter, we have based ourselves on the products of the Cannabric Company. Here you have a story about them, and for more information, you can consult their catalog.
