INDUSTRIAL HEMP VS MARJUANA

Industrial Hemp Derived CBD

Studies have revealed that cannabis has evolved with humans over thousands of years in a process called co-evolution. Hemp may have been used for our first rope, fabric, paper, and one of our first medicines.

While Industrial hemp produces little or no THC, it does contain CBD a naturally occurring chemical produced exclusively in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. Both Cannabinoids have shown to provide profound benefits to the human body; but unlike THC, CBD does not make a person feel intoxicated.

Marjuana-derived THC

Cannabis varieties rich in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are known for their recreational use to stimulate the brain. However, more recently we've seen a shift in interest to CBD infused products which relieves far more physical and mental stress symptoms as opposed to THC and will only produces a calming effect on the body.

THE HISTORY OF HEMP

Hemp has vast History that cannot go unnoticed, Erba Cultivation stands behind what we believe, is the next revolution in American History.

Hemp is among the oldest industries on the planet, going back more than 10,000 years to the beginnings of pottery.

Americans were legally bound to grow hemp during the Colonial Era and Early Republic. The first American Flag was made from hemp.

In 1937, Congress passed the Marijuana Tax Act which effectively began the era of hemp prohibition.

In 2014, The Farm Bill allowed hemp in certain states for research. Kentucly was a key player initating the hemp movement in the United States.

In 2018, President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill which specified hemp (and its constituents such as CBD) as an industrial byproduct, not the be regulated or criminalized by the DEA.

HOW DOES CBD WORK IN THE BODY

When CBD is consumed it travels around the body looking for receptors to bind into. Once CBD binds to these receptors it creates a balance homeostasis in our nervous system and immune system, thus regulating a wide range of physiological processes that affect our everyday experience, including our mood, energy level, blood pressure, immune activity, bone density, glucose metabolism and how we deal with pain, stress, hunger, and more.

A NOTE FROM THE TEAM

While the hemp plant has undoubtedly served as a critical resource during our early history, it may provide an even greater purpose in our immediate future. There is no denying that our dependence on fossil fuels and dirty industrial processes has left us fighting against harsh chemicals and a build-up of synthetic materials. Opposed to the efforts of today’s greatest minds, the solution to this problem might not be a major technological advancement or a groundbreaking innovation. In reality, it may be as simple as a humble plant, with the ability to serve as a natural alternative to our most vital resources.

Along with growing hemp for the lucrative CBD oil it produces, Erba Cultivation will give back to the Earth by producing hemp for fiber and seed. Our long term vision is to make sure hemp-based products are available at a competitive price over synthetic and environmentally damaging materials, thus contributing in a small way to reversing the ecological crisis.
