1. Cannaka is a botanically complete source of natural cannabinoids and aromatic terpenes. A proprietary blend of hemp and other plant extracts, the ingredients in Cannaka promote the entourage effect which describes the various synergies between naturally occurring cannabinoids and other flavonoids. As a result the benefits of Cannaka are multiplied compared to any individual ingredient taken alone. This improves the local and systemic responses to an abundance of disorders, especially inflammation.
2. Neuromodulation: Cannaka engages the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a scientifically proven system of receptors and neuromodulatory ligands that are distributed throughout the body. The ECS is the largest system of “neuromodulators” in the body, which are responsible for ensuring that the body remains in homeostasis, a stable equilibrium.
3. Regulates physiological processes: The ECS is distributed throughout the body, including the brain and the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory. The ECS affects every major body system and organ. It also plays a major role in the digestive and circulatory systems and helps regulate bone density and muscle tone. Finally it helps regulate body temperature, blood sugar, and neuroendocrine functioning.
4. Influences memory and emotions: The ECS influences reasoning, awareness, and emotional response. It is involved in learning and memory systems where it plays a critical role in helping people to forget; a process that is just as important to mental health as remembering. The ECS regulates voluntary movements and involuntary stress responses including anxiety, fear, and pain.
Supports equilibrium in the body and immune system: Endocannabinoids are crucial to maintaining a state of stable equilibrium in the body. Their main role is in cell to cell signaling. They help fine tune the body’s response to the central nervous system and send signals backward to the brain, modulating its activity. Without the ECS, the brain would have a difficult time fine tuning its response to a given stimulus possibly increasing the risk of autoimmune or inflammatory disorders.
5. Mediates Stress Response: Endocannabinoids play a central role in our stress responses. Chronic stress is often associated with negative health effects. The ECS is the central mediator of the stress response. The ECS regulates the release norepinephrine and cortisol and affects how stress affects mood, cognition, and activation of the limbic system. The ECS also helps mediate some of the metabolic effects of stress on lipid metabolism. Therefore, maintaining a healthy ECS is important for reducing the harmful effects of chronic stress on overeating and mood.

Clean, healthy water is the essence of prosperity in every society.
Yet, as we’ve seen from recent crises such as the one in Flint, Michigan, access to clean water continues to be a challenge even in a developed country like the United States. But what if there was a low-cost, quick-fix solution for the nation’s aging water systems that filters and purifies water at the tap without the need for harmful chemicals or costly systems?
Using hemp as a water filter seems to be a viable answer.
Foundation for Industrial Hemp Production & Research (FIHPR), a non-profit organization, has developed a hemp microfiber water filter after 2+ years of research and development. The new filter addresses many noticeable and unnoticeable problems, such as actively reducing rust, chlorine and E.Coli. It contains all-natural filter media: scientifically proven anti-bacterial/-microbial hemp fiber as well as activated coconut shell carbon, achieving a more thorough purification than most standard pitcher and faucet filters.
“We have one, and it works so well! Our water is terrible fairly certain our pipes are rusted and a landlord who has no concern,” remarked one anonymous tester. “Since we got a HMF filter there has been no brassy residue and I feel confident it has improved our water quality significantly!”

WHY USE HEMP FOR FILTRATION
Michael Crippen, the founder of FIHPR, started researching water purification with the use of hemp micro-fibers at the request of an ex-navy entrepreneur about 2 years ago. Originally starting on a project on hemp biodiesel, he discovered the antibacterial nature of hemp fibers that could be utilized in the consumer market.
Ever since this discovery, Michael has spent the past two years on research and prototyping. As a student at University of South Florida majoring in chemical engineering, Michael has dedicated most of his research and free time on developing the hemp filter.
Michael bemoans the use of toxic chemicals and non-organic materials, as these methods may persist into the consumer’s’ drinking water and cause illness. Instead, his organization seeks to make available a healthier alternative that helps to reduce harmful components of municipal filtration. None of the filters contain any harmful materials.
THE ADVANTAGES OF A HEMP WATER FILTER
According to FIHPR, there are numerous upsides to the use of the hemp microfiber water filter. This includes a near endless resistance to mildew and mold, along with all the capabilities of standard filters. The vision behind the filters is to assist households around America and the world with an easy-to-use, effective in all environments filtration solution.
Currently, the only purification method to achieve anti-bacterial/microbial results are solutions such as UV-radiation and chlorine. The former option in incredibly expensive and bulky, while the latter is incredibly toxic. Hemp as an alternative is truly an attractive option that makes purification affordable and non-toxic.
The hemp water filter is more than just a filter. It’s a softener and purifier that cleans drinking and cooking water for the whole family. The hemp microfibers captures and kills 95% of bacteria and microbes without leaving toxic residue. It also effectively reduces natural gas, dyes, and tannins.
HOW THE HEMP FILTER COULD BE A REAL GAMECHANGER
According to the UN-Water, “783 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. ” This figure, along with the National Resource Defense Council’s study on copper and lead violations, provide a good view of the global water situation.
With the adoption of hemp filters as a viable purification solution, we can hope to positively contribute to solving this crisis. As a non-profit, FIHPR’s goal is to provide filters at no-cost to in-need communities and to help modernize aging and developing infrastructure around the world.
The water crisis in Flint, Michigan was a critical reminder of the importance of the quality of drinking water in society. With contamination and water scarcity becoming an increasingly bigger issue around the world, an eco-friendly and affordable solution such as hemp filter should be seriously considered.
If you’re into healthy eating at all, you may already be aware of Hemp super food products. You may also be noticing a greater variety of Hemp food at your health food stores and even in your supermarkets.

With demand there is supply. More and more folks are realizing the super healthy benefits of eating hemp. Why are so many people are now adding this new/old super food to their daily diet? A big reason, is our body actually loves it and it’s protein packed, and high in chlorophyl.

“Seeds,” hemp is a tiny, cream-colored flat disk comparable to the size of a sesame seed. Its texture is soft and creamy, not hard and crunchy. In my opinion, the taste is akin to that of a peanut or sunflower seed, yet somewhat richer and more complex. I can taste the hint of chlorophyll that dots some of the seeds; it reminds me ever so slightly of the taste I perceive when chewing a mouthful of chlorella tablets. Hemp, however, melts in your mouth. This property lends itself extremely well to blending the seeds to create smooth and creamy sauces, shakes, and soups.
Things You’ll Want To Know
Essential fatty acids are very susceptible to the effects of light, heat, and oxygen (as most plant foods are). This means that any hemp products (or any EFA rich food) should be stored in the refrigerator, in sealed, light-impermeable containers and not heated in any way. Some products recommend refrigeration only after opening. And that is most likely fine, however shelf life is generally increased when these products are kept cooler. EFAs and proteins change drastically when they are heated and can transform the fats and proteins from being extremely healthful to extremely harmful. Any temperature over the enzyme threshold temperature of 115F will initiate these harmful changes. Here is the lowdown on the most popular forms of hemp avail-able and how to use them:
Popular high-quality brands include: Manitoba Harvest, Living Harvest, Nutiva, Hemp-Seed, and Ruth’s. Because I’m a big believer in consuming the most whole form of a food in order to benefit from the synergistic nutritional effect it has to offer, and to minimize nutritional losses and modifications caused by processing, this form is my favorite and comes most highly recommended.
How To Use Hemp Seed
The best form currently available to us is the hemp seed nut, in its most whole state. Sprinkle them on your salads, eat a handful alone, or blend them into a creamy sauce, smoothie, or soup.
Keep in mind that blending causes rapid nutrient destruction and oxidation, so you won’t get as much from them by blending them as you would eating them whole. You can also make your own hemp milk by blending the seeds with three times as much water as seeds and then straining it (optional). Most people prefer to slightly sweeten their hemp milk by adding a few drops of Stevia or other good sweeteners. Without any sweetener, this milk makes a delicious base for a creamy dressing or soup.
One more bonus of consuming hemp seeds is that they are relatively economical, costing roughly the same price per pound as other popular organic seeds. But also keep in mind that they pack more bang for the buck and in smaller quantities. Adding hemp to your diet is an investment in our health that is well worth making.
Hemp Seeds Contain Complete Protein
They are a highly digestible balance of all 20 known amino acids (both essential and non-essential) and in higher quantities than most other plant sources of protein. Hemp seeds are 33-35% protein. A mere 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds contain approximately 11g of protein!
Hemp seeds have a near perfect ratio of omega-3 (alpha- linolenic) to omega-6 (linoleic) essential fatty acids (EFAs). The ideal ratio is considered to be 4:1 (omega-6: o m e g a — 3); hemp seeds have a ratio of 3.38:1. These fatty acids are required by our body via our food; we cannot synthesize them our-selves, thus the term, “essential.” Most Americans consume far more omega-6 and not nearly enough omega-3; this imbalanced ratio seems to go hand in hand with the common degenerative diseases of today. EFAs have a critical role in growth and development, inflammation response, mood regulation, immune strength, cardiovascular and neurological health, cellular respiration and more. Hemp also contains the fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (omega-9), stearidonic acid, and oleic acid.
Hemp seeds and oil contain chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is nearly identical in molecular structure to our blood and is thus extremely beneficial to building the blood, nourishing, and detoxifying the body. While the quantity is not nearly as high as the chlorophyll content of other blatantly green foods, like wheat grass or leafy greens, the more we can increase our intake of chlorophyll the better. Chlorophyll’s presence in the hemp nut is another testament to its amazingly balanced nature.
If you haven’t tried Hemp Products, it may be time to taste. Making healthy eating choices is always better for our overall lifestyle and now we have hemp super foods that will get us high on health.
