CBD from Coast to Coast

It seems we have a long way to go when it comes to regulating and understanding the healing power of the cannabis plant. Our previous posts attempt to highlight certain areas where CBD can be very helpful. Our hope is to educate people who are new to the usage of purely medicinal cannabis. The plant has such a long history and contained in it a real struggle to separate the stereotypical use of recreational, and the slowly emerging awareness around its bonafide healing qualities. We want to keep the energy pure and light around this plant and the magic contained in it. At Hemp Element we are standing by the strictest measure of quality with ethically chosen organic products from BC, Canada...

Thoughts on CBD and Legalization

CBD: Good for YOU and Your Furry Friends Too!

Our health and well-being, and that of our family and friends, is pretty much, universally, number one on our list of life priorities. This also includes our ‘furry friends’ and farm animal family. So, since we know the benefits of CBD for ourselves, it is only natural that we would also treat our animals with CBD oil, and nutritional hemp products. It is interesting to discover that this was also true in ancient civilizations and throughout modern history. As a matter of fact, in earlier times, before the somewhat recent prohibition of cannabis, animals would also treat themselves by eating both wild and cultivated cannabis or hemp. After all, animals, in the wild, do naturally know how to care for...
