      Why you should ditch fast fashion and switch to Hemp clothing

      The fashion industry is one of the leading polluters in the world and the largest contributor to the build-up of greenhouse gases! If you didn’t know this, it’s completely expected because they do a good job at hiding it from hitting the mainstream media. Hemp is known to be one of the most sustainable materials out there due to its soil replenishing properties, fast growth and overall usefulness. Other than the fact that hemp is highly sustainable, hemp fabric is also long-lasting, durable and feels extremely soft on the skin.

      Let’s start with the basics – what is hemp?

      Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant. It has a plethora of industrial benefits, it can be used not only in the making of textiles, but also oils, food, construction material, and much more. Hemp has negligible traces of THC and grows much faster than trees and other plants at a higher volume than most.

      So what are the benefits of Hemp fabric?

      Reduces Carbon emissions:

      As mentioned earlier, the fashion industry is one of the largest contributors to global warming and environmental issues. When Hemp is used as a material, it is eco-friendly an bio-degradable and as a crop, Hemp absorbs 4 times as much CO2 from the environment as trees. This means Hemp actively works on reducing the concentration of CO2 in the air.

      Needs comparatively lesser water to grow:

      Many crops used for fabric drink up a lot of water and require heavy irrigation. However, Hemp requires much less water as it does not require heavy irrigation to thrive. Another benefit is that it does not need a heavy use of insecticides and pesticides.

      Hemp enriches the soil:

      Hemp restores much of the vital nutrients that have been lost. Multiple cycles of hemp can be grown on the same land and it can also be used a part of crop rotation. As mentioned earlier, it doesn’t require pesticides and therefore doesn’t include the pollution of soil through pesticides.

      The fabric is comforting and cozy:

      Hemp is easy on the skin and super breathable. It doesn’t absorb sweat, is resistant to fading, doesn’t wear off easily and holds shape even after multiple washes. In fact many have said that it gets softer with time. If you have a bad odor, hemp clothing may help you due to its anti-microbial properties.

      Hemp may just be the future of clothing, as per the rate at which the fashion industry is hurting the environment we may not be left with any other choice but to switch to hemp. But why wait till it gets that bad? Switch to hemp clothing that’s fashionable, sustainable and feels so good! Shop various styles and patters at cbdstore.in today.

      5 reasons why Hemp is the next big thing!

      From hemp oil to tinctures to hemp body-care products in India – hemp has become an incredibly popular go-to for an array of problems or experiences and we’re sure you can’t help but wonder why. You may have seen a large number of people advocating for hemp skincare products or hemp oral products and might have even given it a chance because of the extensively popular reviews. What are the main reasons behind this upward growth? We’re sure there are many more, but here’s a breakdown of the top 5 reasons why this could be the case.
       
      1. It’s effective. Science is catching up slowly but the people already know.
       
      The science behind its workings is still in the works. However, there are a number of studies that confirm what users already know: It works as a natural analgesic, relieving physical discomfort and speeding up recovery, it improves sleep quality through a calming effect, it reduces acne flare-ups and improves general skin quality and it acts as a stepping stone to an overall healthy lifestyle. In short - Hemp heals!
      2. It’s the natural alternative we’ve been looking for.
       
      The past 6-8 years have been revolutionizing when it comes to the beauty and pharmaceutical industry. Customers have been demanding greater transparency when it comes to purchase. Nowadays everyone prefers products with a shorter ingredient list and preferably ingredients that are actually natural and familiar to them. Most importantly, consumers want more natural skin care or organic skin care. They don’t want any toxic chemicals, especially when they’re ingesting it or applying it on their skin or hair. This makes the perfect market for all natural products made using hemp/ hemp oil, doesn’t it?
       
      3. Hemp products cover a wide market
       
      The best thing about hemp is that it’s so versatile. It has always been known but with growing acceptance of the cannabis industry, hemp has found a way to manifest into various products such as: Clothing, paper, food and beverage, bioplastics, biofuel and biodiesel, housing, animal bedding, automotive and more! And keep in mind, all of these products if packaged right are 100% eco-friendly.
       
      4. Production of hemp is easy and low maintenance
       
      Hemp is known to be surprisingly resilient. It only requires 25% of the water required to grow cotton! It does not require as much pesticides or care as many of its contemporaries and is able to grow even in relatively harsh conditions. And due to this factor, high-quality hemp body care products are becoming more and more accessible to the public.
      5. It delivers a wide range of therapeutic effects
       
      And when we say this we’re mainly talking about our favourite – hemp oil. Hemp oil feels totally natural to our body because it reacts to phytocannabinoids which are structurally and chemically very similar to our own cells. The push of full-spectrum hemp oil specifically has contributed to the growing popularity, advocacy, and acceptance of hemp.

      Tackle winter dryness with these Hemp Lotions

      It's getting colder each day, and winter can wreak havoc on your skin - making it dry, itchy and irritated. Dry skin occurs when our skin doesn't retain sufficient moisture — perhaps, because of frequent bathing or use of harsh soaps.

Dryness during winter results in problems like wrinkles, winter xerosis, eczema and so on.

      CBD and mysticism – What we can learn from Anandamayi Ma

      When one chooses to begin their journey on the spiritual path, they are presented with a number of instances that wake them up to the qualities within themselves that they haven’t been aware of. We all have experienced this type of awakening at some point in our lives and as we embark on the journey of infusing light to even the darkest parts of us, we begin to look for guidance – we seek others who have been through the journey, whether it’s our friends, gurus or plant medicine.

      One wise and radiant woman who has helped many along their spiritual journey is Anandamayi Ma. She was an Indian saint who lived until 1982. She has been described as "the most perfect flower the Indian soil has produced” by Sivananda Saraswati. Her teachings are fluid and feminine because they do not adhere to “one right path” or “one way of being”. She always stated that “everyone is right from their own standpoint”. "How can one impose limitations on the infinite by declaring this is the only path—and, why should there be so many different religions and sects? Because through every one of them He gives Himself to Himself, so that each person may advance according to his inborn nature." She says as she describes the nature of her beliefs. She advocated for the spiritual progress of women by demolishing discrimination and introducing the sacred thread ceremony that was previously available only to men to women.  

      She was observed to be persistently and naturally in a state of divine bliss. Her nature was endearing, magnetic and intriguing to many. Even when her mother fell dangerously ill, she was seen to be detached and in a state of neutrality. If one chooses Anandamayi Ma to look up to on their journey here on earth, it opens up the mind to the possibility that one can live in a state of impermeable joy. But in this fast-paced world and life, although many of us may be enraptured by her teachings, it becomes very hard to stay aware and in a positive mindset all the time. We can only draw inspiration from such amazing women and teachers and try to stay true to our path. Although it may be difficult, it is not impossible. With our modern-day problems comes tools that are designed to help you on your spiritual journey and one such tool is Cannasbis. CBD specifically can help transport you to a more aware, and open to the messages from your soul and intuition. As Anadamayi Ma also says, the best teacher you can encounter is your own inner nature. Self-realization is god-realization, she says.

      If you’re on the spiritual path and are feeling stuck or frustrated in your journey, or if you simply are inspired by Anandamayi Ma, or you just want to advance on your journey, take a little help from CBD to get you in the state of mind to absorb and integrate the magic this world has to offer. If you are a woman who’s reading this, now is the best time to start because it’s Women’s Month at our store and we are giving you 10% off with the code WMN10. Godspeed on your journey! May you encounter the magnificence of your own soul.
