Your hemp flowers are amazing and the taste is awesome! They roll smoothly and smell beautifuly. A true chillax moment, the world just stops. I try to use them slowly so I don't finish them too fast.

--------------------------------------------------

The Grinch is the fluffiest herb I have ever laid my eyes on. It smells like forrest and beautiful days and takes you to a complete "calma state". Taste of the Soul Healer is even more wicked, I was in shock when I saw how perfectly it grinds. I haven't seen this before in my life. The quality is top notch and the names are just perfect. I am obsessed and really grateful. Thank you.

--------------------------------------------

Thank you for the package, truly an amazing gift, it really helped me get through the stress of final exams at the university!

All smiles #harvest

The long anticipated harvest has started

The long anticipated harvest has started! Our local organic and eco-friendly Manitu field is full of earth's finest hand-picked herb (#pesitcidefree) and we are stoked about the final result. Big and busy days ahead of us, lots to do, but doing it with smiles and hearts all the way.

 

Manitu's field report (week 14)

More amazing creations on the far edges of the gauss curve!

The red/purple colored flowers, get their amazing colors from anthocyanin, a water soluble vacuolar pigment which is also responsible for the amazing colors of autumn leaves... stay tuned for more information or simply ask anything that boggles your mind... about the plant, of course!

Manitu's field report (week 13)

WEEK 13 of our cannabis cultivation process: watching the plants grow big, healthy and strong, anticipating the upcoming harvest, which will happen in October. We'll keep you posted.

We like big bags and we cannot lie

Happy to let you know we've finally got big sized, refillable, sustainable, fill and zip stand up pouches for longer lasting delights and way better price for your flavour of choice. Available for all three strains. Check out our For Your Well Being section for purchase.

Manitu's field report (WEEK 9)

WEEK 9 of our cannabis cultivation process mostly includes checking out and empowering our plants in the open field with a little help of cords so they can stay strong, grow upright and richly. All is going well and as it should be. Stoked about that, we can't wait for the harvest season.

Manitu's field report (WEEKS 5-8)

Hey! We just came back from our Manitu field and wanted to give you a short report of the growth process.

What we did in the past weeks was regularly check the plants for any possible diseases and cultivated the space between plants, so we eliminated a vegetation of weeds, which can also be the source of a disease transfer. Then it was time for canopy management. Plant canopy is namely treated in a way that the lower branches never touch the ground so canopy management is optimised for maximum light exposure of the flowering buds. Additional cultivation is provided close to the plants, so the roots get even more air and space for their growth.

This is where we are at the moment, in the next weeks we’ll keep you posted with more reports, so you are able to monitor our work and feel all the love we put into growing process.

Manitu's field report (WEEKS 4-5)

PLANTING IN THE OPEN FIELD

Week 4 is when all the fun begins. When plants are strong enough for the field, we transport and plant them in an eco certified grow site, which is watered by water, sourced from a river that flows in its vicinity.

The river has a spring only 15km from the field and has no industrial or agricultural activities nearby. Adequate plant spacing is provided for the plants to make sure there is no space for cross contamination or potential disease transfer.

We take great pride at the fact that all fertilisers are natural and no pesticides are used during the growth period.

Manitu's field report (WEEKS 1-2)

In the month of may sowing took place in our specially equipped greenhouse. What's the process, you ask? Firstly, we carefully select the seeds and machine plant them into trays. We use the machine planting to ensure uniformity of the crop in the following days in which we put special attention to the fertility rate and potential genetic mutations of young plants. We leave the plants in trays for about a week before we move forward to transplanting them into the field.

One week after the sowing process, we carefully transplant the seedlings into pots, using potting machine for uniformity.

In this process plants with potential genetic mutations are excluded and kept separately for later researches of the anomalies. The healthy plants are put in a temperature and humidity controlled greenhouses, therefore we truly achieve the ultimate growing conditions.

 

 

Consumers still know too little about CBD

The use of CBD in various forms has been present in both the European and American markets for many years, yet people still do not know enough about this cannabinoid. Earlier this year, two surveys were conducted, one among European and the other among American consumers, which surveyed the knowledge about CBD and consumer habits in 2019. Below, we summarize some of the findings.

In Europe, as many as two thirds of users report the positive effects of CBD on their lives
New Frontier Data has published The EU CBD Consumer Report: 2019. The study explores CBD perceptions, availability and consumption behaviors. The online survey was administered in 17 countries across the European continent on 3,100 people between 18 and 98 years-old. The sample has included 53% male, 46% female, and 1% other or not gender specified participants. The results show that the awareness of CBD among European consumers is relatively high. More than half of respondents (56%) had heard of CBD. Its usage is significantly lower, with 16% reporting having used CBD or CBD products. A majority (58%) of those who reported having used CBD said they first tried it in the preceding six months.

The most frequently indicated reason for using CBD was pain management (40%), followed closely by relaxation (34%) and stress relief (31%). Three-quarters of respondents (74%) who have used CBD reported that it has had a positive impact on their quality of life.
There remains a lack of clarity among consumers about the nature of CBD and the differences between it and high-THC cannabis. More than half of the respondents (53%) either believed that CBD consumption gets the user high (25%), or were unsure whether it does (28%). Nevertheless, CBD enjoys broadly positive public perception, with nearly half of survey respondents reporting that they had a positive impression of CBD (46%) and a minority (15%) expressing a negative impression. Oils and tinctures (53%) ranked as the preferred means for Europeans’ consumption of CBD; pills and capsules (23%) are also common. Cannabis flower (17%) and vape pens (16%) round out the top four most common modes of consuming CBD. CBD is reportedly most often consumed in the evening (46%), followed by the morning (31%).

Most US consumers use CBD for energy boosting, pain relief and relaxation
CBD Consumer report was created by CBD Insider, an independent publication specializing in news and analysis of the industry. Their online poll was conducted between December 2019 and January 2020 and included 1,055 respondents from all of the lower 48 states. Of those people surveyed who use CBD, nearly fourth fifths of consumers said they use it at least weekly if not several times a week; more than one in three reported using CBD daily. The vast majority also consumed CBD in edible, tincture, or capsule form. About 30% reported vaping and topical use; drinks were also popular. Consumers report using CBD for aches and pains, relaxation, and muscle soreness and recovery but the highest response (82%) in terms of reported efficacy was for energy.

 

 

Most consumers buy CBD at brick and mortar stores, followed by branded websites and online retailers. Consumers are exposed to ads online but the vast majority (about 48%) get information first from friends and family. Social media is also important, as is mainstream media. The most common reason potential consumers cite for not using CBD is that they just do not know enough about it. CBD is beginning to replace some traditional medications, with about 20% of respondents said that they had swapped a more traditional medication with CBD.

Wanna cup of cannabis tea?

There is no doubt anymore that cannabis has many therapeutic effects. Lately, the use of organically grown industrial cannabis, which contains CBD and CBG, is getting more and more popular amongst people, as those two cannabinoids have a beneficial effect on the human endocannabinoid system. Unlike the commonly known THC, the cannabionides CBD and CBG have no psychoactive effects and are used in many different products. The popularity of CBD and CBG hemp flowers in tea is on the rise, as they give out a lot of useful effects when they bind with hot water, which consequently provide hemp tea with benefits and healing effects.


So why hemp tea?
Hemp tea is the most convenient and above all the most delicious way to consume CBD and CBG. When diluted in hot water, its aroma becomes less intense, which provides a pleasant taste of a warm beverage that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. A refreshing cup of hemp tea is also a great way to consume extra fluid, which is essential for healthy functioning of the human body. Because it does not contain caffeine, it has no diuretic effect and provides the body with a sufficient amount of water rich in cannabinoids and antioxidants. Similar to other teas, a cup of hemp tea is great for soothing stomach problems, as well as giving a soothing warm feeling and relieving bloating problems.

How to pick and select the highest quality CBD and CBG hemp flowers?

It is obvious that CBD and CBG market is booming. It’s not an overstatement to say that CBD and CBG are rising stars when it comes to managing pain, relieving anxiety, and helping people manage and overcome a variety of different illnesses and disabilities. For many years, the primary goal of cannabis growers has been to increase THC levels in this ancient plant, but in recent years, after positive health effects of CBD and CBG have been scientifically proven, industrial cannabis production and sales of products that contain these two cannabinoids, are significantly expanding. So it’s smart to know how to recognize the highest quality CBD and CBG hemp tops in a flood of different providers, especially if you want to buy them online. Connoisseurs point out three characteristics that we need to pay attention to.

APPEARANCE
Pleasant to the eyes, pleasing to the body. This definitely rings truth when talking about CBD and CBG cannabis tops. As as we recognize a delicious apple from afar, we can also see the quality of CBD and CBG tops at the first glance. The tops should be green, compatct and full of trichomes - visible frozen crystals – spread all over them. These three visible features will instantly show you when it comes to top quality hemp flowers.

AROMA
Buying CBD and CBG tops is quite similar to buying regular flowers, fruits or vegetables. If the CBD or CBG flowers are properly and lovingly grown, they have a very strong scent, in which we recognize the familiar smell of cannabis. The strong aroma indicates that the flower contains a sufficient amount of CBD, CBG and terpenes; these are substances that arouse pleasant emotions in us and have a generally positive effect on our senses. Terpenes are the ones that produce the pleasant smell of freshly squeezed oranges and the uniqueness of the scent of lavender and roses. The sweet and fruity aroma of CBD and CBG flowers is thus certainly an excellent indicator of their quality.

ORGANIC GROWING METHODS
Let’s face it – pesticides and trace chemicals just aren’t cool, so it's very important for you to look for CBD and CBD flowers from the suppliers who grow their hemp organically and do not use artificial pesticides.

MANITU HERBS, THE SMARTEST CHOICE
One of the smartest choices when buying the highest quality CBD and CBG hemp tops is definitely our online store MANITU HERBS, which specializes in selling the best hemp products. In our local eco-field, all production procedures are performed by hand. The plants are monitored throughout the growing season, as well as all further processes.

Interaction of CBD with other drugs

Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, has been steadily gaining popularity as both a medical treatment and a health and wellness ingredient since cannabis legalization last fall. The non-psychoactive cannabinoid has been shown to be beneficial for a variety of conditions, especially anxiety, inflammation and pain management. Due to lack of clinical research, there is a long way to go in understanding the nature of these interactions. That said, there is currently evidence of certain interactions, including the following:

Blood-thinning medications
There is an increased risk of bleeding for people who are taking blood-thinning medications. CBD increases the potency of these medications and prolongs their duration in the body, so should be monitored. Blood thinners should not be combined with CBD without consulting with a healthcare provider.

Sedative medications
CBD does not possess the sedative properties of THC, though a 2006 study showed that it did positively affect the sleep cycle. When CBD is combined with a sedative, or drug with sedating properties, it has additive effect, increasing the potency of the medication. This interaction needs to be considered when determining dosing.

Lowered efficiency in medications
CBD is also known to decrease the effectiveness of certain medications. Pharmaceuticals that are subject to precise dosing requirements are susceptible to disruption from CBD. There is still so much to be learned on how much CBD interacts with other drugs, making it essential to have an open dialogue with your physician. Since CBD can interact with multiple medications in a variety of ways, a family doctor is the best person to discuss potential drug interactions.

We need to talk about CBG



Despite the fact that cannabis is a complex plant with more than 400 chemical entities, the cannabis industry is generally still focused on only two already known cannabinoids: THC and CBD, thus this does not mean that other cannabinoids are not finding their way in the cannabis market. One of them being cannabigerol CBG, the so-called minor cannabinoid, which is getting more and more attention. The cannabinoid experts began to monitor it more closely because of its antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

The pharmacological effects of CBG described in the scientific literature include: anti-fungal, anti-insect and anti-inflammatory activity; neuroprotective activity; stimulation of appetite, and enhancement of the death process of cancer cell. 



What science says about CBG


Cannabigerol CBG interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors, inhibiting the intoxicating effects of THC. It also demonstrated an ability to increase anandamide, commonly referred to as the “bliss molecule,” an endogenous cannabinoid that helps regulate a wide range of bodily functions, including appetite, sleep, mood, and the immune system. 

More research is needed to fully understand what CBG has to offer from a medicinal standpoint, but existing studies have already presented several reasons to be optimistic about the therapeutic potential of CBG.

Glaucoma


In a 1990 study, published in the Journal of Ocular Pharmacology and Therapeutics, researchers were examining how THC and CBG could help lower intraocular pressure in the eyes of cats. The findings concluded that CBG and related cannabinoids may provide therapeutic benefits to patients suffering from glaucoma.

Inflammation
In a 2007 study published in the Journal of Dermatological Science, researchers found that CBG, along with other cannabinoids, has the potential to treat inflammation caused by psoriasis, a chronic skin condition caused by an overactive immune system. In 2013 animal study, published in Biochemical Pharmacology, CBG also demonstrated the ability to reduce colon inflammation in rats, suggesting that CBG may be an effective treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) symptoms.



Anti-Tumor Growth


Several studies have also found that CBG could inhibit the growth of cancer cells and, as one 2016 study on lab rats published in a German journal discovered, could act as an appetite stimulant, which could translate into a beneficial treatment for chemotherapy patients. In a 2016 study published in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology, researchers concluded that “non-psychoactive plant-derived” cannabinoids, including CBG, could act as direct inhibitors of tumor progression.
Those findings are supported by a 2014 study in Carcinogenesis, which reached a similar conclusion that CBG could hinder tumor growth in colon cancer, as well a 2006 study in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.that found CBG may be an effective treatment for breast cancer.
