Hemp is now classified by the government as a commodity crop. That means they see it the same as any other agricultural product like corn, oats, wheat or alfalfa. From its superfood status to its ability to make paper, shelter, fuel and more hemp is one powerful plant.
Here at Sturdy Horse, we are asked a lot about what hemp is, and what it isn’t. That’s why we wanted to take the time to give you a little hemp education, a Hemp 101 if you will. Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. For thousands of years, it has been used for paper, textiles, cordage, fuel, food, and medicine. In fact, theColumbia History of the Worldstates that the oldest known artifact of human industry is a scrap of hemp fabric that dates back to approximately 8,000 BC. So what exactly is hemp, and how does it differ from the intoxicating forms of cannabis that are used medicinally and recreationally? Let’s dive into Hemp 101 and help you to better understand the basics of this versatile product…
STURDY HORSE CARE
Health Care for the horse continues to become more and more complex. The time has come for us to start asking ourselves, why? These animals were designed to be healthy and function well with what nature has given us. If you want to truly be your horse’s hero, next to teaching them manners, caring for them in a natural way is the best life-long gift you can give them. Be a good teacher and provider.
STEADY RIDER CARE
As the leader of the pack, being a Steady Rider of any kind requires a sharp mind, a strong heart and fit body. There is a balance of real food, clean water and physical activity that keeps us at the top or our game. The Hemp seed gives us a superfood with a natural complete plant-based protein and perfect balance of Omega 3 & 6. The plant also gives us CBD and other cannabinoids that naturally supports and helps balance our Endocannabinoid System.
LOYAL PET CARE
Our animals are family. We love and care for them like they are our children because, well, they are. And just like children, they don’t get to choose what foods to eat or supplements to take. People choose those things for them. If you put down processed food and real fresh food which do you think they would take? Make good choices, for your animal’s sake.
