Five Ways to Help a Hemp Farmer – And Save Five Dollars!

August 3rd, 2018 by Brandy Palmer

At Green Wellness Life, all of our CBD products are derived from industrial hemp, so it’s no surprise that we support hemp farmers and their efforts. If you want to help farmers, too, the best way to do that is always making your voice heard in the legislative process and supporting the products their crop helps to create!

1. Support Them Politically

Right now, the U.S. Farm Bill exists in two different forms between the House and the Senate. A committee has been formed to resolve the difference between the two. The U.S. Hemp Roundtable has created an easy way to not only find out if your legislator is on the committee that will be doing that resolution, and, if so, to contact them with your support for the “hemp-friendly” language in the Senate version.

2. Try Hemp as a Construction Material

At first glance, it might not seem like a simple plant can replace concrete as a building material, but that’s exactly what it can do! Hemp is an incredibly versatile plant and makes for a versatile building material as well. “Hempcrete,” for example is highly-supportive and insulating while still being a sustainable option.

3. Wear Hemp to Show Your Support!

If you want to show off your support for hemp, try wearing it! Hemp fiber is great for clothing because it’s a natural, breathable textile, making it both durable and comfortable. If you want to try hemp textiles AND your favorite small business, now you can do both with our Green Wellness Life logo t-shirt! If green isn’t your color, we offer other options too from candles to wallets to hats.

4. Incorporate Hemp into Your Diet

Hemp seeds are a highly-nutritious food that are available at most grocery stores. You can find them in trail mixes, granola bars, or even on their own to be added into salads or smoothies. They’re a protein-packed with vitamins and minerals. Because hemp is grown with 0.3% THC or less on a dry-weight basis, there’s no chance of a psychoactive effect from consuming hemp seeds!

5. Try Hemp-Derived CBD

Luckily for you, this is our wheelhouse! All of our CBD is hemp-derived and federally legal. And there are so many ways to try it – from capsules to tinctures to CBD Vape Cartridges & Disposables to skincare products. You can even spoil your favorite pets with the benefits of hemp oil or CBD.

If you want to give CBD a try, we’re offering a great deal this week. Use the coupon code “Farming5” for a flat $5.00 off your order*! Speaking of farmers, we’re bringing this post full circle and reminding you not to forget to use your voice as a citizen. Go to the U.S. Hemp Roundtable website today to contact your legislators and help to educate them about the many benefits of hemp.
