Rediscover hemp as a living and healing remedy
Hemp is back! Modern research and a globally engaged movement are bringing one of the best-known medicinal and food products back from oblivion. The authors are following this comeback as herbalists, cannabis café owners, and food bloggers. In their book, they explain how the medicinal plant hemp and active ingredients like CBD (cannabidiol) can be used to treat illness and disease. They show how to make CBD-containing cooking oil yourself, what creative and tasty dishes you can cook with hemp and how you can use the hemp plant specifically as a medicinal and food.
Integrate hemp into the diet and support the endocannabiniod system
The human body itself produces cannabis-like substances, the endocannabinoids. They control end-inflammatory processes and the work of the immune system, regulate sleep, pain, memory, cancer defense and stress response, and have an impact on how we feel. Active ingredients of the cannabis plant, such as cannabidiol (CBD), can support the body's endocannabinoid system, alleviate discomfort and help holistically with diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, depression, neurodermatitis or cancer. In their guidebook, the authors explain how CBD from non-intoxicating hemp varieties in the form of oil, seeds or flowers can be integrated into the diet and used for health and well-being.
