The hemp

Hemp (lat. Cannabis sativa) is a very old crop, useful and medicinal plant. Since the 3rd millennium BC, the plant with its finger-like pinnate leaves has been grown because of its valuable plant parts. Fabrics, sails, ropes and paper are made from the fibers and cooking oil with a high content of valuable fatty acids can be pressed from the seeds. The seeds can also be eaten directly. The flowers and leaves serve as a remedy in folk medicine for all kinds of diseases and ailments and also as a basis for the distillation of essential oils. This can be used for example in aromatherapy or for the production of perfume and cosmetics. Even the remains of the processing are still used, the press cakes as food and the shives as bedding for horses and small animals. In addition, the extremely resistant fibers can be used as building materials (insulation, mortar, "Hempcrete") or for hard plastics.


The cannabinoids

So far, more than 80 different cannabinoids have been discovered in the hemp plant (source: Cannabidiol implementation guide / BAG, status 2019). The best-known cannabinoid is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has a psychoactive effect and is therefore subject to the Narcotics Act in Switzerland (unless the content is <1%). In a cannabis plant there are usually only a few cannabinoids in a relevant concentration. The hemp varieties we use are non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD). This is of great interest in medicine today, since many people who use hemp do not want an intoxicating effect. More and more scientific and clinical studies are underlining the medical potential of CBD as a treatment option for a variety of ailments.
