2. Uses less water
Hemp requires a third of the water required by other crops to grow.
3. Uses less chemicals
The hemp plant is naturally resistant to pests and predators, reducing the need for pesticides or chemicals like with other crops.
4. Feeds nutrients back into the soil
Hemp works as a compost, feeding 60-70% of the nutrients it takes to grow back into the soil.
5. Captures carbon dioxide
Hemp is a natural air purifier. It captures carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and acts as a store, hiding carbon dioxide away in its soil. In fact, hemp absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere while its growing than farmers emit while using the equipment needed to harvest, process and transport it.
6. Supports bee populations
The hemp plant is known to support bee and pollinator populations in the agroecosystem. Farmers are recommended to grow hemp to support bee diversity.
7. Good for you
Hemp is an incredibly versatile and multi-benefit plant. Hundreds of verified customer reviews show how hemp in CBD form is helping transform people's lives through sleep, anxiety and stress relief.
This raw material can be recycled for many purposes. We recycle unused plant matter into renewable energy at our Swiss biogas facility, making enough to power 250 local households. Additional plant waste is also used as a natural fertiliser for local farms, giving back to the environment what we take from it.
Did you know? All of our products come wrapped up in a 100% recyclable carton made from compostable hemp fibres.
