Damn Right Velobars are Organic. Here’s Why.

When I decided to start Velobar, there was never any question that all our food ingredients were going to be organic. If we were going to be delivering the wellness of plant medicine, you can bet we were going to do it in a healthy way. And when I say “healthy,” I don’t just mean healthy for our bodies. I also mean “healthy” for our planet – specifically, the natural ecosystems that keep us all alive, and that we as stewards of Mother Earth are duty-bound to nurture and protect for future generations.

Velobar ingredients list

We’re mighty proud of the fact that Velobar is a plant-based high-protein snack delivering hemp-derived CBD in a healthy way. “Plant-based” is (rightfully!) all the rage these days, as more and more people – vegetarians and omnivores alike – try to eat more vegetables and fewer animal products to stay healthy and keep up resistance to disease. But I think what can get overlooked a little bit sometimes is how important it is for our food to also be organic

Nowadays you can walk into any grocery store and find shelves and shelves full of organic items. But those of us of a certain generation can remember a time when “organic” was a pretty radical idea, and the only way to eat organic was to shop at a hippie food co-op…or grow it yourself. 

That’s me and my mom on our commune back in the Spring of 1973, planting seeds for our first crop of organic cucumbers. At the time I was just a kid, so I was more focused on the excitement of planting crops and watching them grow than I was about the ideological underpinnings of the Back to the Land Movement. As I grew older, I started to enjoy the immense feeling of satisfaction that came from harvesting and eating the food we grew ourselves, with the strength of our own hands and the sweat of our own brows. And there was plenty of sweat, believe me! We tried to live lightly on Mother Earth, relying on our own labor (and that of our well-loved farm animals, as you can see from the picture below) instead of machines. 

We also insisted on using natural plant-based bug repellents that we found in the Whole Earth Catalog instead of chemical pesticides. Those organic bug-repellents didn’t always work out as planned, and we did lose a few veggies to the bugs and worms sometimes, but at least we knew we weren’t ingesting any harmful chemicals. Growing and eating organic food was just the underlying ethos of our entire way of life.

Whole Earth Catalog

Decades later, when I decided to start Velobar, there was never any question that all our food ingredients were going to be organic. If we were going to be delivering the wellness of plant medicine, you can bet we were going to do it in a healthy way. And when I say “healthy,” I don’t just mean healthy for our bodies. I also mean “healthy” for our planet – specifically, the natural ecosystems that keep us all alive, and that we as stewards of Mother Earth are duty-bound to nurture and protect for future generations.

Although the politics of cannabinoid prohibition have prevented the hemp and marijuana industries from being able to put the USDA ORGANIC logo on our products, you can rest assured that we only work with CBD suppliers who use the same best practices organic farmers do. And of course the rest of our food ingredients (except Sea Salt, which is a mineral and therefore outside the scope of an “organic” appellation) are all organic.

So I guess the bottom line is, you can take the kid out of the commune, but you can’t take the commune out of the kid. But seriously — it’s not just me. Somehow, even through all the tumultuous twists and turns our world has gone through since the hippie days, and even though a lot of the ideals of that era have been pooh-poohed by later generations (we don’t see a lot of free love adherents nowadays, that’s for sure), for some reason the simple idea of sustainable farming without the use of harmful chemicals has only grown stronger and more mainstream over the years. And at Velobar, we’re going to keep it that way…’natch!

Does cbd/cbg interact with prozac?

Republished by Plato

Published

on

I've read that the ssri prozac and cbd/cbg/thc are metabolized by the same enzyme in the liver and can cause the ssri to build up in the blood stream and I was wondering if this is a proven fact. It's been very difficult to find research on this. I started taking Prozac but I want to smoke too. If what I've read is true then smoking or consuming any cannabis product will hurt me more than it helps and that means no more cannabis anything..

Not All Hemp Products Are Created Equal

What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Both Hemp and Marijuana are in the cannabis family. Human intervention has produced variation within the species in terms of THC and CBD levels. Simply put, hemp is designated by a man-made definition of THC levels at or below 0.3%. Marijuana is always harvested from female plants and typically has high THC levels with little to no CBD, although some strains can contain verifying levels of CBD/THC ratios. Hemp has over 10,000 known uses, which can be made from both the female or male plant depending on the desired product. Mana Artisan Botanics uses only female hemp plants in our products, with lab testing guaranteeing below 0.3% THC levels.

Hemp extract is the phytocannabinoid concentrate, created through some form of extraction process, most commonly either with supercritical carbon dioxide or ethanol. The extract’s potency will depend on the levels of cannabinoids in the plant, so each batch of extract will have different levels of cannabinoids.

Why should you care where your hemp is sourced from?

The demand for hemp extracts is rapidly increasing in the U.S. However, there is still limited supply of U.S.-grown hemp, resulting in high prices that cannot compete against imported hemp extract from places like China or Eastern Europe. Consumers seeking quality products may find a lack of transparency when it comes to the origin of the hemp extract in their products. And unfortunately, there is limited data behind the volume and quality control behind these imported hemp extracts.

At Mana Artisan Botanics, we take great care to source high-quality hemp that is grown in the U.S., with the specific intention to facilitate health and wellness.

Do hemp cultivation methods matter?

In the cannabis industry much of what is grown, unless it is organic, is sprayed with varying levels of pesticides and fungicides. Most consumers don’t realize this is a common practice. Given the increasing demand for hemp and cannabis, many conventional farmers are transitioning their fields to these high value crops. Yet, hemp’s cultivation environment is critical as it can act as a bio-remediation crop, absorbing contaminants from the soil while it grows. If the hemp was grown in poor or misused soil, that plant might contain toxins you won’t want to ingest.

This is why at Mana Artisan Botanics, we source our CBD-rich hemp extract only from farms that have never had any toxic agriculture on the land or use any harmful pesticides or fungicides. All our products are purity and potency tested at multiple lab facilities such as Steep Hill Labs Hawaii and Hawaii Pharm Labs for cannabinoid levels as well as pesticide residue, heavy metals and other contaminants. State of the art testing methods are used and THC levels are guaranteed to be under the federal limit of 0.3%. If you want to review the lab results, please contact us!

Do different hemp strains deliver varying results?

Many of the hemp products on the market derive their CBDs as a by-product from other types of hemp varieties such as fiber or seed for hemp food products. The levels of CBD-rich hemp extract in these products are lower and lack the diverse spectrum of cannabinoids one would ideally want for an “entourage effect” that delivers the possible synergies made available by whole plant therapies.

At Mana Artisan Botanics, the hemp we source is grown with great care to facilitate high levels of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

What is the entourage effect?

The “entourage effect” or “plant synergy” is the idea that cannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids in cannabis interact synergistically to magnify the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.

Are whole plant extracts superior to single-compound alternatives?

Do you know the difference between isolates and whole plant extracts? “Whole plant extract” has a wide range of cannabinoids. Most scientists agree that there is between 80-120 cannabinoids plus additional terpenes, in addition to the better know CBD and THC compounds. With a “whole plant” extract you are getting access to the much wider spectrum of cannabinoids in your hemp infusion for that entourage effect.Isolates are not known to be effective as a whole plant extracts for that very reason. Additionally, isolates can be over processed, sometimes with added chemicals for purification.

Mana Artisan Botanics uses “whole plant extracts” only, with full range of cannabinoids making our infusions superior to single-compound alternatives.

Why does Mana Artisan Botanics include Turmeric in our hemp infusions?

Curcumin, the yellow pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa) is one of the most intensely researched natural products available today. With over 6,000 peer-reviewed studies, including clinical and scientific research, turmeric is shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. We add turmeric in our hemp infusions to further augment the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoids.

Why does Mana Artisan Botanics include Passionflower in our Hawaiian Sleep Hemp Tincture?

Passionflower extract has been shown in studies to be helpful for relieving general anxiety and improving sleep quality. We add passionflower in our sleep hemp tincture to further augment the anti-anxiety effects of cannabinoids.
