We all know by now that hemp has a wide variety of uses. The non-psychoactive cousin to marijuana, hemp has historically been used as rope, canvas for sails, and paper such as the paper used for a draft of the Declaration of Independence. Hemp has been used by pioneers, such as Henry Ford, when he built a car using hemp engineered plastics. 

Thanks to the emergence of other nano technologies, hemp has become the latest industry to receive the nano makeover.

Hemp as a Super-capacitors

Hemp may be the most sustainable plant in the world. It literally has thousands of uses, is known to replenish soils naturally, needs no pesticides or herbicides, and needs less water than other industrial plant species. Now hemp is more sustainable than ever. Hemp bast has long been thought to be a waste product of industrial hemp production. The bast of the hemp plant is the outer hard covering of the stalk that’s discarded in the production of hemp fiber.

An article that was published in the journal ACS Nano was authored by Dr. David Mitlin from Clarkson University. Dr. Mitlin and his team of dedicated researchers were able to demonstrate that the performance of hemp as a super-capacitor was as good, or better, than super-capacitors that were built from graphene. Graphene sheets, which are layers of carbon that are one-molecule thick, are much more expensive, and according to the study, is only as good as hemp under optimal conditions.

“We’re making graphene-like materials for a thousandth of the price – and we’re doing it with waste. The hemp we use is perfectly legal to grow. It has no THC in it at all – so there’s no overlap with any recreational activities,” Mitlin says.

Hemp as Nano Nutrients

Hemp is known for having little to no THC while at the same time having medium to high concentrations of Cannabidiol (CBD). BioCBD+™ products are triple tested and results show that our products have < 0.001 % THC in their products.

CBD oil products have been gaining in popularity thanks to endorsements from media powerhouses Oprah, Dr. Oz and Dr. Sanjay Gupta on his CNN special report. However, recently the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been targeting companies looking to cash in on the growing demand for CBD. These companies were cited for having little to no CBD or any of the other synergistic cannabinoids and terpenoids found in the highest quality CBD products. In addition to having low concentrations of CBD, oil-based products have to overcome poor bioavailability in the body, around 6% on average for oil-based products.

Now consumers don’t have to spend hours scouring the internet for reviews of CBD oil to find responses from satisfied consumers. BioCBD+™ is setting out to prove that BioCBD™ technology is 10x more bioavailable in the body than oil-based CBD products. This makes products with patented BioCBD™ technology safer and less expensive because these products can use less CBD while also giving the body a serving of CBD & Ayurvedic herbs it can use efficiently.

With all these new scientific breakthroughs, it is hard to say what tomorrow will bring for hemp. However, with hemp nano technologies such as super-capacitors and BioCBD™, the future may already be here.

About James Sol Radina

As CEO and Co-Founder of BioCBD Plus™, James Sol Radina brings years of experience and accumulated expertise from the CBD industry. His interest originated in early 2014, when James embarked on a major filmmaking project to travel and study CBD around the world. Together with a team of filmmakers, he sought out to interview top doctors, scientists, and researchers about CBD, which, at the time, was relatively lesser known, but was starting a buzz in the market. After seeing first-hand the results that CBD had in the patients and experts they filmed, James was “all in!” and his business pursuits began. James started BioCBD Plus™ in 2015, with the goal to fill a niche void that existed in the CBD industry. With the knowledge he gained through his study of CBD, combined with new scientific research, he created the world’s first water-soluble, 100% BioAvailable CBD. The proprietary formula is whole-plant based and more easily absorbable by the body than other CBD products on the market, and the company’s product suite has continued to expand following its demonstrated success. The strength of James’ passion for CBD is matched by his dedication to volunteer service. He incorporated a strong socially responsible model to BioCBD Plus™, which supports The Veterans Discount Program and other programs through donations of CBD products to those who cannot afford them. Since the start of the company, James has also continued to be the inspirational energy behind the company’s beliefs and marketing strategy, which are driven by his commitment to spreading the science-based truth about CBD and bringing the healing benefits of the product to as many people as possible.
