The Many Uses of Hemp Part 3 – Food and Medicine

In the last two articles in our Many Uses of Hemp series I covered some of the main uses for the cannabis (hemp) plant.  I wrote about hemp’s uses for fuel and paper, and for textiles and building products, which are of course just some ways that the hemp plant can be used for the benefit of mankind. Hemp awareness is something that is slowly becoming more apparent in society.  Many great people have made it their life’s ambition to educate people about the benefits of hemp and it has begun to pay off.  When researching for the last article I read in the Telegraph about a couple in England that are building a house entirely out of hemp products, creating next to no carbon footprint and building a house that will outlast any other house on the street due to the quality of the building products. In this article, I will focus on the uses of hemp for Food and also the medicinal properties of the cannabis plant.

Green Pride 2016

Product Earth Expo 2016: The UK Needs More Events Like This

Going to Product Earth 2016 has shown us the potential of the UK Cannabis community to come together and celebrate the benefits of cannabis. The cannabis expo/festival itself is the result of the hard work of just 6 people (3 internal organisers, 3 external organisers), plus the events staff needed to put everything together. With such low resources, you'd expect some serious limitations, but we found Product Earth was a well-planned and rewarding weekend that gave valuable insight into the UK's Cannabis Industry.
