The importance of choosing organic hemp products cannot be overstated.
After decades of prohibition, organic hemp is exploding in popularity among farmers, consumers, and manufacturers. Hemp fibers, seeds, and oils can be used to produce everything from CBD products to textiles to body care, so with such a versatile array of uses, it’s no surprise that hemp has become such a popular plant.
The rise in demand means more farmers and entrepreneurs are cashing in on the opportunity to create hemp and CBD-related products. This is great for the growing cannabis economy, but this level of demand makes it challenging for many farmers to grow large crops without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, genetically engineered seeds, or growth regulators. For this reason, many bandwagon growers are cutting corners and ditching the organic route in order to produce larger yields of hemp at a time.
For products like textiles and plastics, the use of pesticides and other chemicals might not be much of a concern from a health standpoint. But when it comes to products you put in your body, chances are you don’t want to sprinkle pesticide-laced hemp seeds on a salad or drop fertilizer-infused CBD oil under your tongue. The best option is to support businesses who source their hemp from organic growers, or who take the time to grow and tend to their own organic hemp crops. It’s not required for makers of these products to use organic hemp, but if the demand shifts in that direction due to the health benefits, more growers will go organic over time.
