Love for Food – How Our Eating Habits Can Both Help and Hurt?


Could you have thought that half a year would pass so quickly? We didn’t even notice, and the month of June has just ended. For some, it was a tense period of studying and exams; for others, it was an opportunity to complete essential tasks and make new business deals, while others could use that time to prepare for the upcoming holiday season slowly. We will set aside July and August for holidays and natural gifts to anticipate events ahead of time. We will talk about how to have a safe and fun holiday in nature and how to create a holiday for your pets. We will also have some fun conversations for you to read with people who have successfully incorporated cannabis products into their daily lives. It is worth the wait, and while waiting, it is worth visiting our online store, where you will see more news this summer.

Strangely enough, summer for many people starts as early as winter. You ask, how is this even possible? Before the New Year, we promise to start exercising, move more, give up bad habits and thus prepare our body (and soul) for the upcoming hot season of the year. In the summer, we take off our clothes and enjoy time spent at lakes, sea, river or calmly swimming in a pool, sunbathing in the sun, and boldly (or not) demonstrating our bodies. One action that requires most of our attention before summer begins is nutrition. 

A healthy and balanced diet helps maintain a good appearance and strengthens our bodies from within. No matter how positive the sentence you just read sounds, nutrition also can become our biggest problem. Nevertheless, this will not be the main topic of this blog today. We will dedicate this text to get you acquainted with three different diets – vegetarianism, veganism, and raw food. The rapidly growing diets are popular among fashionable youth, but how stylish are the reasons behind their choices?

What Harm does Human Eating Habits do to Nature (and Us)?

We will not be surprising anyone saying that not only impressive amounts of plastic waste but also many food wastes going to landfills worldwide every year. The reality is quite painful, but the statistics are even more shocking: we throw around 1.3 billion tonnes of food waste a year. The numbers remain numbers that do not usually have any long-term impact on people and their consumptions habits. However, it is particularly worth considering that this amount of food waste accounts for a third of all food stocks grown and produced in the world. We must add that this costs the world economy almost one trillion dollars every year. From an economic perspective alone, these numbers are enormous, but such a loss is more detrimental to the well-being of our planet and our health than to our wallets.

Let’s take a closer look at what foods are most often thrown away and how much such consumptions habits cost us? According to international informational sources, people are most likely to throw away fish products and seafood, cereals, legumes, meat, and dairy products. We could go on with this list, but here we can already spot some critical aspects. We are depleting the oceans by throwing away fish and seafood; we are wasting water by growing vegetables that no one needs. By throwing away beef and dairy products, we contribute to the growing amount of methane gas depleting the Ozone layer. On top of all that, we are casually looking at the efforts of those people for whom food growing is their primary source of livelihood.

Every day and every year, we need to talk more and more loudly about the change in food consumption habits and that we subconsciously choose to consume foods that are detrimental to our health. Research has shown that people who eat red meat are more likely to suffer from diabetes, have cardiovascular problems, and certain types of cancer. An even more significant number of scientific articles conclude that consuming fatty foods and meals significantly increases early deaths and shorten life expectancy. Even though food deprivation affects close to one billion people globally, those who have too much food suffer as well – such people from obesity and various diseases. 

To help both themselves and the planet, every year, more and more people choose to change their eating habits radically, give up meat, fish, dairy products or eat what is not heat-treated.

Vegetarian Diet

Vegetarianism is one of the most popular dietary practices adopted by nearly 10 per cent of the world’s population. While India is considered the most vegetarian country, one of the main reasons is its religious beliefs (Hindus consider cows to be a sacred symbol of life, thus, protecting it). Other reasons include ethical convictions and cultural, aesthetic, ecological, economic, political, taste and health reasons. For example, people may abandon eating any meat, including fish, poultry, crustaceans, and slaughter by-products because they do not find meat tasty or believe animals are equal to humans and have a soul. There are several different types of vegetarians, as some people choose to eliminate eggs from their diets and others do not. However, most vegetarianism cases include people giving up any animal-related products, for example, choosing eco-leather clothing, not wearing accessories made from animal horns, etc.  

Vegan Diet

Veganism is a more diet restrictive version of vegetarianism; while people with a later diet can still have a glass of cow’s milk or eat cheese, vegans opt-out for alternatives such as soy milk, coconut milk, or tofu. As said, vegans exclude any animal-related food from their diet as they, for example, consider milking a cow equal to doing injustice to an animal and hurting it. A vegan diet includes fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grain products, already mentioned dairy alternatives and vegetable oils. The major downside of a vegan diet is that the lack of fatty acids found in fish consumption can lead to depression and other psychological and emotional problems. However, the vegan diet is still considered healthier than eating meat.

Raw Food Diet

While vegetarianism and veganism exclude meat, fish, dairy and eggs, raw food diet allows eating almost everything if food’s temperature does not go above a certain number of degrees. Eating unpasteurized and raw foods such as meats is dangerous; therefore, raw food diet mainly includes fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and sprouted grains. Despite many different reasons behind vegetarians and vegans’ decisions to eliminate meat and animal-related products from their diet, the raw food diet’s main rules are based on studies stating that such a diet allows people to consume more nutrients than processed and cooked food. Sticking to raw food diet does not mean you only get to eat raw fruits and vegetables as such dietary restrictions include blending and dehydrating foods to prepare them for eating. Even though such a diet sounds very simple to follow, it can be a burden to your wallet as organic foods tend to cost more than regular groceries.

A change in your diet is an important decision to make; thus, it should not be made in a hurry. While for some people, vegetarianism, veganism, and raw food diet is a way to make a statement and contribute to the conservation of the planet themselves, others should only make such decisions after a thorough chat with their nutritionist or family practitioner.

Too long, didn’t read? The world suffers from human eating habits: impressive amounts of food are thrown away every year, and things we eat often harms our health. To help themselves and the planet, every year, more and more people become vegetarians, vegans, or choose to eat only raw food. By giving up meat, dairy products, fish, etc., their diet mainly consists of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and whole grains. At the same time, various food substitutes are used to maintain vital body functions and obtain all the necessary nutrients.

We face so many temptations in the summer that it is easy to get lost in them: long stary nights, delicious food, carefree holidays, and breathtaking adventures. It indeed sounds like a fairy tale finally coming true after long nine months of waiting, but reality catches up with us sooner or later. A night spent counting starts quickly turns into insomnia and a disturbed sleeping regime. Big and tasty meals turn into anxiety about one’s appearance.

Researchers studying the therapeutical properties of cannabis unanimously agree that CBD has excellent pain-relieving properties and special anti-inflammatory abilities, so you may use it to control various pain and allow for faster recovery after trauma or surgery.

CBD and Summer – How One Complements Another?

For many people, summer is the most adventurous and exciting season out of all four. Unlimited sunshine, breathtaking places, comfortable clothing, millions of stars in the night sky and new experiences pretty much waiting for you behind every corner. Sounds lovely, right? At the same time, another type of relationship with summer exists as some people find this season hard and sometimes even impossible to enjoy. Generalizing is probably one of the worst things we can do when talking about summer, but we will not deny that this season is indeed charming; we just need to discover it. This month we will talk precisely about that – we dedicated June to newly present you the attributes without which summer would not be worth waiting. So, let’s fill our summer with tasty food, refreshing drinks, never-ending beauty and entertainment to remember!

--

We briefly mentioned that people might have both love and hate relationship with the summer season. There are many valid explanations why this is happening, mainly depending on the people themselves and their personal lives. Maybe something has happened one summer that they do not want to remember, perhaps they just don’t like the heat, maybe the reasoning behind it is even more serious... Well- we are not the ones to judge but the ones to help, so today, we will talk precisely about how CBD can help us survive all summer disasters.

Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder... What?!

It is no secret that seasonal transitions have profound effect on our daily lives. We must admit that it is slightly strange to talk about negative side of seasonal transitions as we say farewell to spring and hello to summer. However, our feelings and emotions do depend on differences in temperature and weather changes despite whether we step into dark and cold months, late autumn rains and short winter days or witness the beginning of summer. In reality, neither adds us confidence and happiness, but summer next to all that causes people mixed emotions including anxiety because of their body image, hectic schedules, concerns of burning out and, of course, holiday envy.

As researchers guess, summer seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is a depression mainly caused, as researchers assume, by longer days, increasing heat and humidity. As experts say, all seasonal disorders are believed to be closely related to sunlight patterns. Therefore, the sun should be blamed for the problems. Sunlight, together with actively ageing our skin, turns off the melatonin production in our bodies. Accordingly, we have a smaller timeframe to produce enough melatonin hormone to put our sleep-wake cycle in order during the summer. Usually resulting in lethargy and sadness, SAD also includes troubles sleeping, heightened anxiety, loss of appetite, and weight loss. As unfair as it may sound, researchers have found that women are more likely to be affected by SAD than men despite reporting more severe symptoms.

How to Solve the Problem When it Lies Within?

Summer Seasonal Affective Disorder is not a very common phenomenon and, according to experts, affect on average 1 in 20 adult Americans. While it is argued that the sun and long hot summer days should be blamed for this, we also should look inside ourselves before blaming something that we cannot change. As roots of many various problems may lie hidden in our thoughts and bodies, it could make us more vulnerable despite not being the problem themselves. The good news is those problems can usually be solved in simple yet very clever ways, and at the same time as it will help us fight summer disasters, it will also make us feel happy and relaxed all year round.

Last autumn, we talked about preparing our bodies and thought for the upcoming winter cold. We advised you to exercise regularly, eat healthily, not rush, take care of yourself, and emphasized the importance of a regular sleep cycle. Although we won’t find negative temperatures during the summer months, the ways to fight summer seasonal affective disorder are pretty similar. We need exercising to boost our mood while a healthy and balanced diet helps provide the body with all the necessary nutrients and vitamins. Taking little breaks and immersing ourselves in calming thoughts helps everyone stay focused and be more productive while sleep based on what we discussed a few paragraphs earlier, helps us relax and feel more energetic.

However, sometimes it is challenging to keep promises and just take care of yourself because summer is one of the busiest times of the year. Despite holidays, there is twice as much work and stress both before leaving for holidays and coming back to work after them. CBD products in summer are indispensable because it helps you feel calmer and reduce anxiety we usually experience when travelling or trying to combine work with relaxation and because it helps to enjoy more quality sleep and is excellent for relieving various pain. 

Correct and consistent use of CBD Oil Drops is necessary not only in summer but all year round- we know that miracles do not happen in an instant. Now in our store, you can find as many as three different types of CBD Oil Drops! One has already become our bestselling product, other ones have ZERO THC, and the newest ones – CBG Oil Drops have higher potential. All you need to do is take advantage of the discounts available and start enjoying the summer to its fullest!

Which is More Important – Inside or Outside?

The biggest but not the only difference between our internal and external problems is that the latter is easier to notice, which means that they are much easier to solve. During summer, no matter how we choose to spend it, we are inevitably exposed to more significant amounts of sunshine. Our skin is not happy about it; it is the same love and hate relationship, just another level! We can improve the situation by using various skin care products, masks, oils, serums, creams and more. Although different skin types require extra care in the summer, the essential thing is the right ingredients and preparations for all occasions!

It cannot be more obvious – here we are talking about the necessary moisturizing of the skin, its protection from UV rays, enrichment with vital natural substances and skincare products that are always with you. CBD Cosmetics are beneficial for our precious skin. It has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, so you can use CBD Topicals to reduce swelling, pain, redness, and skin irritation without any worries. These problems are among the most common calamities that make us sad when we really should be enjoying the summer. Providing a unique calming effect, CBD Cosmetics have a positive impact on the skin, so before you start getting ready for summer, visit our store, where an even more extensive selection of CBD Cosmetics will be available soon.

Summer is a happy time, and every person deserves to enjoy those three months to the fullest. Do not be afraid to try many different things until the autumn comes and experience only the most beautiful feelings. CBD Products will help you feel more assured of summer fun and will become another necessary attribute of a safe and fun summer.

Too long, didn’t read? Summer depression is a thing, and - to believe experts- it is caused by changing sunlight patterns. Summer seasonal affective disorder results in heightened anxiety, trouble sleeping, and appetite loss but can be eased by using the highest quality CBD products! For a summer without any worries, choose CBD or CBG Oil Drops and a full range of CBD Cosmetics.

Meet our Future – New Products and Healthy Mindset

We knew from the beginning what we are aiming for when creating Biomedicanna – we want to introduce as many people as possible to the natural benefits of hemp. Our CEO Rokas talked about it quite extensively, and at the beginning of the month, we also talked about how this noble goal was born and turned into a fast-growing company. No matter how large a community of people gather under the name of Biomedicanna and are already in love with our products, we feel obliged to once again introduce everyone to the power that lies within a single drop. We are not standing still and are constantly improving the already familiar formulas to you; we are regularly adding new products to our store and developing new ways to introduce hemp products into your daily routine. As this month ends, today we will tell you about our plans and what should you be waiting for in the upcoming weeks.

A Drop of Pure Power and a Little Bit More

CBD Oil Drops were the very first products to appear in our shop. Helping to combat depression, anxiety, reducing pain, and improving sleep quality, CBD Oil Drops were and still are an absolute bestseller. As with all our products, these CBD Oil Drops were with the allowed rate of THC, so our other goal was to release Drops that would be completely THC free! We did it a few months ago, and CBG Oil Drops will hit the market very soon. CBG, short for Cannabigerol, is a mother cannabinoid with slightly more potency than CBD. Like other Oil Drops, these will be available at several different concentration levels. Special discounts will accompany the release of CBG Oil Drops, so do not miss out on the first purchase of a new hemp wellness product.

Sweet Yet Healthy Temptation

Cannabinoids have a variety of positive effect on our physical and emotional health due to their unique relationship with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. It only proves that CBD and other cannabinoids are a versatile way to enrich ourselves with organic vitamins and natural substances. One great way to feel the benefits of CBD is the edibles that will also appear in our store in early summer. We’ve been waiting for that day for quite some time now, but we know it’s very worth the wait for the best thing. CBG Gummies will come at a friendly price and excellent blueberry taste and will allow you to enjoy the power of CBD while also enjoying natural sweet flavours. More information on this product release to follow soon, but we can already promise that the wait for CBD Gummies will be more than rewarding.

Immerse Yourself in Pleasure

In our store, you can currently find three types of CBD Cosmetics: Silk Balm, Cooling Gel, and Face & Body Cream. The sales of the latter product just have broken all the sales seconds, and we are quick to order new batches to satisfy the needs of our loyal fans. One of the reasons for their amazing reactions is the universal use of all the cosmetics we sell, which not only save customers money but also help reduce packaging pollution. Shortly, we aim to expand the range of cosmetic products available further and introduce you to new ways to help your skin with CBD.

More Than Products

Without any doubts, our everyday tasks include much more than just products. Already and shortly, we are making slight changes in how we communicate wellness messages to you. We have already included TL:DR section in our blogs, saving you time and getting the same news as reading the entire length. Also, be prepared to see the faces of Biomedicanna on our social media channels. In reality, a talented team here works to fulfil one goal, so everyone puts themselves to work all 120 per cent. We have already mentioned that our group consisted of just a few people initially, and now it has become international. We understand this as a sign of success, and on behalf of the whole team, we thank you – we will not disappoint you, and we will tomorrow’s challenges stronger than ever before.

Although we are still a very young company, we know that quality lies in details and sincerity. We offer our customers only the highest quality products and friendly service on every issue. We are always open to your suggestions and opinions, tips and feedback, and we are now giving discounts on other products for it—more information at the time of purchase. We still have many ideas in our minds that we plan to turn into reality sooner or later, so summer will be a fascinating time!

Too long, didn't read? Soon we will introduce three new products to our shop. CBG Oil Drops will come just in time for the beginning of summer, followed by CBD Blueberry Gummies shortly after! The third new release will be from a category of CBD Cosmetics, but that is all we can say to you today! Be patient and grateful for what nature gives us.

Meet our CEO - The Highest Quality for Everyone

We receive many questions every day, some of them can be answered in just one word, and others take time to write a detailed and accurate answer. As a growing business, we value both our team and our clients' time. With our work and products, we strive for as many people as possible to lead a healthy life and have a chance to enjoy it. For this reason, we have dedicated an entire month of May to introduce our sustainability and hemp-loving community to Biomedicanna, our products, and the team whose heart is CEO Rokas. As he states, the word Biomedicanna fits the highest quality for anyone determined to enjoy it to the fullest. 

Preparing for summer requires a lot of effort and time, so with the team, we joke that it is never enough to implement all our plans and goals in 24 hours of a day. The CEO of any company is no doubt one of the busiest people in the team. We met with Rokas for a quick online chat, and now we share his thoughts with you.

-Rokas, can you tell us how you came up with the idea to create Biomedicanna?

-The history and beginning of Biomedicanna are pretty simple. We were a group of several friends, one of us worked closely with patients with various health problems for whom our products were making life easier. However, we worked as wholesalers, so we considered other companies to be our partners and not people themselves. As time went by, more and more people contacted us interested in our products – they approached us directly asking for various hemp products. We then created Biomedicanna to make life easier for both those people and ourselves because until then, we were shipping products from our own office, which took even more time. The page acted as access for anyone to buy hemp products on their own using discounts we send them at a better price than anywhere else on the market; this is still one of our top priorities.

-I believe that the switch from being wholesalers to retailers was not that easy, was it?

-We started Biomedicanna with a clear goal, which we had to reach relying on our investments, so there, of course, were difficulties. One of the major obstacles was that the fundamental things we needed to launch the business were quite expensive for our pockets. Programming, copywriting, descriptions, photos and everything else other companies buy from experienced service providers and pay a lot of money were simply too expensive. We then hired our friends because we could pay them when we had free money; we often gave them products instead of payments. Also, we were only a few initially, so we multitasked a lot to find fulfilment centres, packaging and storage providers. All this would have been faster and better if we had more hands in the team and time; therefore, the very first launch took us about half a year.

-What about partnerships? Were you struggling with that as well?

-I will be frank, what we are doing other people still find strange and incomprehensible. To survive, we need to educate people as much as possible and provide them with quality information. In this case, working in the wholesale market was a little easier when comparing those jobs to retail, yet, now those partnerships are more tied to the work that needs to be done, as it allows us to strive and look for better solutions constantly. The partnerships were both better and worse, but basically, we can say that their quality depends on the time you put into building them – how much you invest is equal to how much you get back. The better the quality, the more pleasant it is to share your work with others.

-What then are the most outstanding achievement of Biomedicanna?

-The most prominent win I'd like to name was our ability to launch a business in the first place because we faced a lot of obstacles with payment processing companies. We wanted the period from the customer's order to the receiving it to be as quick as possible, so they will not have to wait until we physically receive the payment, approve it, and ship the products. It turns out that both the most significant setback and the biggest win were the process of making Biomedicanna happen. Everything else is additional processes that we do every day – all tasks are small achievements.

-Do you think about things you would now do differently?

-Oh, a lot of things now we would do differently. Processes, priorities, platforms, maybe all of our communication would be completely different… I would have done many things differently based on our team's experience, but it is crucial to think and do those things differently to improve. The launching process was a good lesson not only for us but also for our customers as during that time we received a lot of feedback on products, where and when we could do things better. Most of our clients are people who need our help and hemp. It makes you stretch and succeed.

-What would be the future of Biomedicanna? What are plans already in your mind?

-Indeed, there are two main things on which all of our plans revolve. The first thing is to maintain the same or even achieve higher products quality. It is not difficult to keep it – we apply already tested processes and use the same raw materials. However, we are always looking for ways to improve the products and think about what new types of hemp we can have to have access to even more cannabinoids and make all of our products full spectrum. Maybe we can somehow purify the substances differently, maybe use different and more convenient packaging?

The other thing is to strive to reduce the prices of products in the shortest possible time so that as many customers can afford and use them to feel the benefits themselves. I genuinely think that the cost of the products is still too high, although it has already decreased from the initial point. Hence, the optimization of various processes is essential and is already in progress.

-Cheers!

We often hear from our customers that Biomedicanna for them associates with hemp, high quality, and sincerity. We sincerely communicate with everyone whether they buy a lot or a little, have significant health problems or just want to live a healthier and happier life. Nothing better describes our relationship with customers than love and pursuit of sustainable life and trust in nature. You can trust us – at Biomedicanna, we offer higher quality at a lower and more affordable price.

Meet our Products - Organic Goods to Power Your Life

We started Biomedicanna with an idea, which made our eyes flicker with fire – we knew what we wanted ourselves and what we wanted to give to other people. We realized how powerful and healing nature can be and decided to share its strength with others. Like thousands of businesses worldwide, we started this ambitious journey by offering consumers a small selection of goods. However, we knew exactly what requirements and attitudes our products would meet – responsible growth and manufacturing, sustainability, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free (we talked more about this in our previous blog). For more than a year now, we have been purposefully increasing the size of our e-shop and producing and selling only exceptional quality wellness products – drops, pastes, and cosmetics.

Nevertheless, we believe that it can still be difficult for many to grasp our range and understand all the valuable features of the products. Today we will once again get you acquainted with our products.

Strength in Every Drop

We will not lie by saying that people usually tend to misjudge certain things, so it is no secret that sometimes we pay too much attention to big things, and we tend to let small details pass through our finger. We’ve come a long way in improving the formula of the CBD Oil Drops, but not we are sure that even the smallest drop has a lot of strength, valuable materials, natural secrets, and science-based healthy solutions. 

One of the main reasons for the popularity of CBD Oil Drops is their versatility and ease of use. The relatively small 10 ml bottle holds approximately 200 drops, which, depending on consumption, last for an average of one month. In addition, there are a lot of cannabinoids, so hemp extracts have an extensive range of uses and an even more comprehensive range of health benefits. CBD Oil Drops can be used to relieve various pain, reduce levels of anxiety and depression, post-traumatic stress, and reduce the severity of acne. It may also help reduce both painful chemotherapy symptoms and reduce the growth of cancerous cells. CBD Oil Drops may also help fall asleep faster, strengthen the blood circulatory system and reduce various inflammations. As CBD itself has not yet been so extensively studied, one can only predict what other benefits scientists will find in multiple studies shortly.

CBD is one of the most prominent cannabinoids found in the hemp plant; however, it is certainly not the only one. Although different amounts of other cannabinoids can be found in CBD Oil Drops, those amounts will be small. It is worth mentioning THC, which is psychoactive cannabinoids that causes a ‘high’ sensation when used, can also be traced in certain products that we sell. Every time we communicate with buyers and prepare social media posts, advertise products, we emphasize that the amount of THC contained in the products does not exceed the laws in force in many countries and is significantly too small to give the already mentioned feeling. 

However, there are many countries where the use of this cannabinoid is regulated under even more strict laws. Due to this reason, we recently introduced CBD Oil Drops ZERO THC, which has already reached fantastic popularity. These products differ from the other on already mentioned THC cannabinoid content and label colours (the labels show greener when the other labels are more reminiscent of earth brown). Both types of CBD Oil Drops we sell are entirely safe to use, and differences do not impact their beneficial properties.

Another unique aspect of CBD Oil Drops is finding them in our store in three different strengths – 5, 10 & 21 per cent. The number, of course, indicates a different amount of CBD cannabinoid – the higher the number, the more milligrams of the component there is in the bottle; therefore, the stronger its effect. Despite the beneficial properties of CBD, we advise each community member to start their relationship with hemp using the weakest drops and gradually move to the more robust products. Consumption also depends on the desired effect: the weakest drops are suitable just to improve wellness, medium drops are perfect for people with minor health problems. In contrast, the strongest ones are usually used by people with significant health problems already treated by western medicine (one must consult a professional medical practitioner beforehand).

Syringe Full of Wellness

For many people, syringes are associated with sad emotions, sickness, and pain, but at Biomedicanna, a syringe means a burst of energy and health, and not needless or medication. To make the members of our community as familiar as possible with cannabinoids other than CBD, we filled the syringes with natural powers, organic ingredients, and scientific knowledge about hemp.

The products – CBG or MULTI-cannabinoid Paste – due to their specific texture, arrive at the customers’ home in 5 ml containers, which are incredibly convenient to use and always take with you. Another advantage is that the syringe accommodates about 100 rice grain size droplets. Although it may seem that the CBD Oil Drops discussed before outperforming the paste, it is necessary to mention that the paste usually has a higher concentration than the drops, so it promises faster and more prominent wellness effects.

We currently offer two different types of paste in our store. One of which is with CBG, also known as the mother cannabinoid (some other cannabinoids deriving from CBG are found as time goes on as a result of chemical reactions – read more about this in our blog a few weeks ago). Due to the extremely short harvesting window and a small amount, CBG is highly valued; it has no psychoactive effects. Even though CBG Paste is mainly chosen by patients diagnosed with oncological diseases and other severe health disorders, CBG is capable of helping other organs and systems as well. As CBG molecules attach very well to the endocannabinoid system receptors in various parts of our body, it supports multiple organs to function better. Brain, liver, spleen, pancreas, colon, vascular, reproductive, immune systems, muscles and bones all benefit from the consistent and correct use of CBG Paste.

However, CBG is not the only cannabinoid that deserves our praise. All cannabinoids found in hemp have favourable health properties, but what distinguishes them is the process of purification and isolation. To achieve the best possible effect and keep the product properties as natural as possible, we also offer customers a MULTI-cannabinoid Paste. In it, as many as seven different cannabinoids reveal their beneficial properties. The MULTI-cannabinoid Paste, which is on the market not for that long, quickly became one of the best-selling products, as one droplet here provides exceptional benefits.

Magic on Skin

People say that beauty lies inside, but in our opinion, one must radiate it from the outside. Of course, our health contributes a lot to our external beauty, but we are convinced that natural, organic cosmetics are just as crucial in maintaining our outer beauty. By understanding the power of nature and appreciating its wide range of healing properties, we have incorporated what is best in the hemp plant into various skin cosmetics and supplemented it with other natural ingredients to exceed everyone’s expectations.

If we had to find one word that would perfectly describe all of the skin cosmetic products in our store, it would be versatility without any hesitation. We believe that we must make the earth a better, safer place by leaving the world than we found it. We support sustainable ideas by using natural ingredients and adopting responsible, modern practices and ensuring that one cosmetic product solves few problems at the same time. In this way, the pollution of various packaging is reduced, and the sometimes rather complicated self-care process is simplified. 

We currently offer three types of cosmetics and skincare products in our e-shop – Silk Balm, Face & Body Cream, and Cooling Gel, all of which are united by the highest standards, independent testing laboratories and love for the planet. We have found one of the best ways to express our gratitude for nature and its healing strength, so each product, depending on its container size, contains at least 150 mg of CBD. Having excellent anti-inflammatory properties, CBD is beneficial not only internally but also externally as it helps to control certain skin disorders such as acne.

Our products with no harmful additives are perfect for each skin type, loving and pampering them all equally. The skin is given an external beauty; it is moisturized, smooth, but at the same time, it is taken care of at deeper layers as well – our products nourish the skin, soothe muscles, reduce inflammation, pain, and promote skin cell regeneration. The added ingredients are only organic and act synergistically, providing the skin with vitamins, balancing sebum secretion, fighting specific skin problems, and restoring its elasticity and firmness.

However, each product has its uniqueness and slightly different uses. Silk Balm is suitable for helping treat insect bites, light burns and frostbite (for more severe cases, seek immediate medical attention), can be used as a lip balm. Face & Body Cream, due to its relatively oily texture, is a great helper in the wintertime as it moisturizes and protects the skin, quickly absorbing into the deeper skin tissue. Cooling Gel is intended for athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle because as it has a cooling effect; the gel is perfect for after the workouts to relieve sore muscles and tense body.

Too long, didn’t read? Now in our e-shop, we offer three categories of hemp wellness goods: CBD Oil Drops, Paste, and Cosmetics. In total, we currently offer twelve different products that differ in their cannabinoid concentration, cannabinoids themselves, texture, and uses. Striving for the harmony between us humans and nature, we strive for synergy and supplement our products with natural ingredients to further enhance their positive effects. Besides, all our products meet our approach – sustainable, responsible, cruelty-free, vegan, and highest quality products.

Meet our Brand - Unique Approach to Healthier Living

Over a year ago, we started a brand you know now. Since then, we have successfully expanded our team from several people and have become an international company. Uniting many different souls, we all share a passion for a healthier life. We are more than excited to be brought together a large community of people who admire and value nature and hemp powers and want to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. We dedicated the entire month of May to introduce you to our brand, the products, and the team which drives Biomedicanna and the love for hemp wellness forward. Today we will tell you all about our unique and nature-friendly approaches to cosmetics and other goods. 

--

Those who have with us all along, and those who have joined this fantastic community recently, should have noticed that we often repeat certain phrases on our blog and social media. We are dependent on nature, so its suffering also affects our quality of life. We are constantly looking for ways to help nature and ourselves; therefore, we emphasize sustainability, environmental friendliness, natural and organic materials and products that meet only the highest standards. 

Being honest, you have probably heard these words from many different businesses; however, we cannot be compared to others. In our 50th blog, we will look at the five most important aspects and features of Biomedicanna that set us apart and beyond other brands. 

Only the Best

One of the several reasons we started this company was that we were not satisfied with the quality of similar goods. As individuals, who want to live healthier, we paid a lot of our attention to what we were putting in our bodies and skin. If you decide to closely read at least some of the labels of beauty and wellbeing products you own and use every day, you probably would be surprised about the number of strange ingredients and various additives found there. Besides, the origin of most of the ingredients was unclear.

Since day one, we promised ourselves to provide customers only with products made from materials grown in certified farms following responsible practices. Using the best seeds, monitoring their growth and applying the most innovative methods, we have achieved outstanding results, yet we always strive for even higher levels of perfection. Having already invested a lot of our resources into research, we seek to improve the quality of manufacturing processes and products. The highest quality is our top priority making thousands of people all over the world healthier and happier while at the same time working tirelessly to offer them products we would not be afraid to use and recommend.

Responsibility to Life

Being a relatively young company does not stop us from seeing how human-made objects and processes change the appearance of nature. With billions of tons of unrecyclable waste dumped in landfills, and products and practices themselves hurting the living world, every little step towards the goal of a cleaner, safer, and more sustainable living counts. Every year we experience more and more negative changes; therefore, we must minimize them and return the environment and climate to their former state. 

We started the brand already knowing how vital sustainable practices would be in our journey of introducing society to the benefits of hemp. Today, we are the company for which this goal has become one of their main driving forces. Eco-friendly ideas are inseparable both from the company’s activities and our individual lives, and for this reason, we all feel a deep connection with our surroundings. Starting with tiny steps, we now make a substantial positive impact on the environment. We dared to resist the standard practices and adopt more responsible approaches despite being less popular. We have a strong opinion about veganism and animal cruelty; thus, we dedicated our work to live in synergy with flora and fauna and defend those who cannot protect themselves.

The Mission to Care for All

We all probably noticed how many products everyone has to consume to take proper care of ourselves, both internally and externally. On the one hand, the number of products shows how seriously we take our health and well-being. Still, from a different perspective, such everyday habits result in even bigger amounts of waste polluting our planet. Considering how many various chemicals are put into each little bottle of personal and home care products, we all should be appalled by what we put into our bodies and what later enters the drinking waters and soil. Besides, even more harmful substances get released into the air whilst manufacturing the mentioned care products. 

Once forced by society to take care of themselves by any means possible, more and more people nowadays turn to nature and choose products that are friendly not only to man but also to the planet. After experiencing the same problems, we knew we had to be more innovative and tackle them differently. We set ourselves the goal of combining nature and man in one product, which we achieved by offering customers products made especially for this reason. Now we see, there is no better way to immerse ourselves into harmony than maintaining high standards and using the most precious materials, and carefully monitoring the manufacturing process. Keeping up with modern technologies and seeing the actual value of organic resources helps us deliver products that unite both nature and man.

Powerful Equals Raw

We each want only the best for ourselves and our loved ones, but sometimes, the worst things hide behind an innocent appearance. If we look more closely at every little thing we consume, we would be surprised by the number of processing it takes for that thing even to become consumable. Most of the time, it means we are consuming hurtful substances and unnecessary additives, which make us even more sick, unhealthy, and do not benefit our physical and emotional wellbeing. 

From the very beginning, we knew our community would deserve the best, and we saw only one way to achieve – by introducing thousands of people to the hemp. Yet, some introductions cannot be comparable to one another. Therefore, we manufacture and sell only the purest and most potent products, which convey the power of hemp and its beneficial properties. Maybe hemp power is not that tasty as one may expect, but we are proud to bring out its two best features – raw and realness. With many more new product ideas in our minds, we know we would never leave the mentioned aspect behind our backs.

Giving Answers

Before discovering the hemp, we many times felt like we just hit the wall. We are now surprised at how little information was available a decade or several years ago regarding hemp, its components, their properties, and let’s not start talking about growing or manufacturing processes. What now to us feels like a piece of obvious information is still very unfamiliar to thousands of people, and we all probably know what the ‘unknown’ brings. It triggers our fear, and we surround ourselves with stereotypes, which resist us from experiencing never felt before senses.

We stepped into the market with higher quality products offering them at affordable prices, yet we were faced with the fact that many people are still afraid of even trying hemp-related products. We set ourselves several goals to reach, one of them being very clear and open about our work and goods. Every day we go to the infinity and beyond answering people’s questions and inquiries, solving problems and helping them feel better tomorrow than they felt yesterday. Besides selling wellbeing products to customers worldwide, we want to educate and allow them to unlock the true potential hidden in nature and one of the most amazing plants there is – hemp.

Too long, didn’t read? Today we wanted to tell you more about the brand you know as Biomedicanna. In our opinion, there is no better way to do that than to be open about approaches we value the most. There are five main aspects of our business you need to be aware of:

  1. We focus on quality rather than on quantity.
  2. We promote sustainability, eco-friendliness and have all of our products cruelty-free and vegan.
  3. We make sure our products are safe both for you and do not hurt the planet.
  4. We are against using additives in the manufacturing process.
  5. We are your friends, and you can always count on us in the world of hemp.

Become an Expert - Your Handy Guide to Cannabinoids

Bend one finger for each time someone said to you that no one is born to be an expert. Well, while you may run out of fingers counting, we should admit those sayings a complete truth. No one is born knowing every piece of information; therefore, we have to work tirelessly to learn new concepts and use the knowledge to advance our surroundings further and improve the quality of life. However, no matter how hard we would be learning, there still are many things we would not be able to master everything. 

While on the one hand, we are stopped by a lack of time, the other thing stopping us is fear and mostly ignorance. We can assure these two things do not help anyone become any wiser and just set us back, making us miss many great – no, incredible – opportunities. Our whole team at Biomedicanna can agree that one of the most exciting things that happened to us is joining people passionate about hemp and wellness. As we now can call ourselves some experts in the field of CBD Oil, CBG Paste and Cosmetics, every day, we receive many inquiries regarding what those three letters – CBD or CBG – mean… 

Today is the day you will become an expert yourself! As much as we love our jobs, one of the most lovable parts about it is educating others about the benefits of the products we offer. We have prepared a handy guide of the most commonly used abbreviations you can use whenever facing uncertainty!

Cannabichromene (CBC) is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Deriving from the CBGa same as THC and CBD, CBC is more similar to CBD due to its non-intoxicating properties and potential medical effects. Working well with other cannabinoids and well working alone, CBC remains in the bloodstream for longer and is thought to be very effective in fighting cancer cells. Besides, CBC has excellent anti-inflammatory and painkilling abilities together with antidepressant properties. However, this compound is still relatively new and requires more research to describe its therapeutic powers fully.

Cannabichromenic acid (CBCA) is an acidic cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp plants. CBCA is also a chemical precursor to CBC, but the previous component derives from CBGa, the mother compound. CBCA and CBC have different therapeutic properties, and as CBC forms in cannabis plants even before flowering begins, CBCA, similar to other acidic cannabinoids, is extracted by juicing raw plants. CBDA is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, which medical researches and experiments show compounds beneficial abilities to relieve pain and minimise various inflammations.

Cannabicyclol (CBL) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. Discovered in 1964, CBL is still relatively new and unresearched as it appears in minimal amounts, making it harder to understand compounds’ beneficial properties. However, scientists managed to get familiar with the CBL molecule’s structure which they say is similar to CBD; this also means CBL cannot deliver the effect of being high. On the other hand, there is one thing differentiating CBL from other compounds – its nature. While other compounds are found in early-to-mid stages of a plant’s life, CBL is created as a by-product of storing cannabis for more extended periods – as another compound, CBC, is exposed to light, it degrades and turns into CBL.

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is an acidic cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp. CBD is less known as the previous acts as a mother compound for the latter – as CBDa is heated and exposed to various light sources, it converts to CBD, and even though these two compounds are close, they do break down when used in different ways. While CBD is the most popular in oil drops, CBDa’s consumption methods are more uncommon. CBDa usually comes in the forms of topicals or tinctures, and some people even juice young plant leaves to enhance the effects of relieving inflammation and reduced pain.

Cannabidivarin (CBDV) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis plants with lower THC levels. Being relatively new, CBDV has not yet been thoroughly researched. However, experiments have shown CBDV to have similar properties as CBD – they both reduce the severity and frequency of seizures, relieves nausea, and fight inflammation. CBDV has also shown effective in treating Crohn’s, HIV/AIDS. Considered as an alternative remedy, CBDV is used in tests regarding various neurodevelopmental conditions, including Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet researches are far from finished.

Cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVa) is a minor cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. Being an acidic version of CBDV, it does not have any psychoactive properties. Like other acidic cannabinoids, one of the best ways to benefit from CBDVa is to juice the raw cannabis plant, but the level of this component varies depending on plants’ growth place and type. As mentioned, CBDVa beneficial properties are much like CBDA – the list includes anti-inflammatory abilities, potential to reduce seizures and prevent vomiting and nausea, therefore, giving relief to epileptic individuals and chemotherapy patients.

More explained abbreviations after a photo-- keep scrolling!

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid obtained mainly from young cannabis plants as they contain higher amounts of the compound than fully grown plants. CBG is also found in smaller quantities than CBD or THC, which makes CBG products more expensive. Compounds beneficial properties are valued all across, and farmers now try to meet the demand of CBG by crossbreeding and genetically mutating different types of the cannabis plant. Like CBD, CBG products and especially CBG paste is widely used to help various patients deal with the pain without experiencing any intoxicating effects and fight cancerous cells.

Cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) is one of a bunch of acidic components found in the cannabis plant. For years researchers viewed CBGa as a minor cannabinoid, but only recently academicians started to call it the mother of all cannabinoids. Being a foundational compound of a cannabis plant, CBGa is a precursor to THCa, CBDa, CBCa, and of course, CBG. CBGa helps the plant to thrive by triggering natural leaf pruning to direct as much energy as possible towards the growing flower. While this property is fascinating, there is little information about CBGa’s application to human health. Still, as far as research is going, the results show CBGa preventing cancer cell growth and antibacterial and anti-inflammatory abilities.

Cannabinol (CBN) is one of many minor compounds found in older batches of cannabis. The longer cannabis is held unused, the more THC component ages; during this process, psychoactive cannabinoid THC breaks down to CBN, which lacks psychoactive abilities and is usually non-psychoactive or have mild-psychoactivity levels. Even though there is a minimal number of researches conducted regarding CBN effects on the human body, several studies present the compound’s antibacterial and painkilling properties and talk about it reducing intraocular pressure, therefore, possibly reducing the risk of glaucoma. While there are many different misconceptions about various cannabinoids, CBN is wrongly thought to have super-sedative abilities; however, there has not been much research on such effects making researchers refrain from such saying.

Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is a non-psychoactive form of THC found in undried cannabis plants. As the plant dries, THCA decays and converts to THC. Due to this and THCA acidness, it is popular to juice cannabis to take advantage of THCA. Despite little research regarding the compound’s beneficial abilities, preliminary research suggests THCA having anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, anti-emetic, and neuroprotective properties. Therefore, soon THCA can be used to treat digestive disorders, chronic pain, epilepsy, etc.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. Mostly known for its properties of stimulation and euphoria, THCV is also known to relieve stress and reduce panic and anxiety attacks. While THCV’s molecular structure is similar to THC’s, the previous has a different array of medical effects – it acts as an appetite suppressant rather than enhancing hungriness. As THCV effects have been little studied, various research shows positive results in treating osteoporosis, helping with diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease – THCV promotes bone cell growth, may regulate blood sugar levels, and improve motor control.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin acid (THCVa) is a mother cannabinoid to THCV, produced by exposing the cannabis plant to heat or light. Despite this molecular connection and assumed potential of relieving Alzheimer’s symptoms, THCVa is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, so researchers focus more on its therapeutical properties. Even though THCVa lacks research, like most of the cannabinoids, this component is thought to have similar anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving abilities. As mentioned previously, THCVa is usually acquired through juicing raw cannabis plants.

Now you know what each of these tricky abbreviations mean – just do not be afraid to use them, and of course, let us know if you still have questions!

Zero Waste Living! or How Trash Becomes a Rarity

Spring is accelerating, and every morning we wake up to see more and more greenery and blooming flowers. We are inevitably overwhelmed by the urge to go into nature and spend as much free time as possible breathing the fresh air. However, all the positive emotions are instantly evoked by the view that we also see in forests, parks, near lakes and rivers. That is the trash piling up and polluting our planet together with our bodies. Although the problem worries people worldwide, it is up to each of us to start tackling it. 

New Trend or Life-long Mission?

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure – this saying has been with us for what seems like forever, yet as we mentioned, one person is enough to make a change. Quite recently various social media platforms and people on them started to go crazy due to this relatively new trend – zero waste living. As some, of course, saw this just as another crazy trend to gain more attention, for thousands of people going zero waste is a conscious action they take to free the planet from waste. 

Even though the term ‘zero waste’ was first used only in the early 2000s, this environment-saving practice began way earlier in the 1980s. Back then, ‘zero waste’ was better known as ‘total recycling’ – Daniel Knapp and his wife tried to prove to everyone that all types of waste could be diverted from landfill and reused within the community. They then breathed in the life to the concept by opening a salvation market. A decade later, the same man set up a program to eliminate all waste in Australia by 2010. It formed a strong and successful concept with other initiatives, which now is known as Zero Waste Living. It is pretty amazing to see such an idea evolve and include more and more people each year united to save the planet from over polluting.

Basic Deeds Saves All

If we tried to explain the concept of zero waste living to our grandmothers, we should just say that we are aiming to send nothing to a landfill. The practice includes reducing what we need, reusing as much as we can once things cannot fulfil their original purpose, sending as little as possible to recycling centres, and composting. As all four components constitute the unified zero-waste system, they, of course, should be standard in every people’s lives. However, all should also be aware that recycling is the second to last option as growing consumerism goes hand in hand with mixed materials, which are almost impossible to recycle.

By committing to zero waste living, we generally redefine the system and move from a linear economy to a circular economy. It means quitting the practice of making new materials every time they are needed and then getting rid of them when they don’t. As we connect two ends of a line and make it into a circle, we stop creating materials from scratch because we have plenty of them that we can use repeatedly. For example, various countries have adopted the practice of a deposit-refund system, where people purchasing beverages pay an additional amount of money, usually ten or twenty cents, which they receive back after returning bottles to deposit stations. Even though it seems like a small step, this initiative has already helped free nature from millions of plastic and glass bottles as well as metal cans. Therefore, a cleaner planet and healthier human lives all start with taking small yet incredibly responsible steps.

Same Vision – Different Devotion

We can all leave a positive footprint on earth if we put in the effort and turn all our thoughts in that direction. Yet as expected, people take different paths towards an outcome of clean and unpolluted nature. One of them is more like going backwards than moving forward. Many people would instead continue accumulating vast amounts of trash every day rather than rethinking their practices and making some changes; we can call such people ‘those who do not care.’ Another group of people may genuinely want to reduce the amount of plastic packaging they use but are forced against such a decision. Switching to more ecological, natural and recycled ideas is a more considerable burden for one’s bank account than buying factory-produced cheaper but often disposable items. Indeed, zero waste products are usually sold in small local shops and made from sustainable yet more expensive material alternatives – wood, bamboo, metal, glass, etc. So to say, people who decided to switch to this nature-friendly movement should have bigger expenses in mind.

Even though zero waste living now seems like a well-known practice with a clear goal in the minds of those who are determined to live more responsibly, there are at least two different levels of this sustainable devotion. Moving from a comfortable life using plastic goods to far more responsible consumption may be too much of an extreme change. Therefore, people start with the low-impact lifestyle, which focuses on holistically reducing one’s environmental impact – together with second-hand shopping, plant-based diet and similar practices, people are getting closer to their intention. Zero waste life includes all of the mentioned actions, but it focuses more on eliminating waste, as said. Many are hesitant to devote their life to zero waste as social media is filled with videos and stories of people fitting all of their trash accumulated within a year into a small glass jar. However, only the most extreme cases of a zero-waste lifestyle can be fit into a jar as it is quite a struggle to find all necessary goods unpacked or packed in recyclable materials. Despite differences, all situations are commendable as they add to a safer environment and brighter future of billions.

First Steps are the Hardest 

We all know how much courage it takes to turn your life upside down. Therefore, we encourage to begin with small steps and gradually include more and more zero waste lifestyle practices into everyday life. For this very reason, we decided to help you by giving some tips our teammates swear by switching from unrecyclable plastics to one tiny glass jar containing all of your trash and other natural resources-preserving practices. Let’s begin!

Hobbies. We all can agree on how excellent new books smell: the smell of comfort on the rainiest autumn day. No matter how therapeutic paper books can be, this habit hurts the earth’s lungs – many trees are cut to produce one book, which most people will read only once after buying it. Solving this problem and becoming a zero-waster could be done two ways. One requires you to visit used book shops, search for people willing to exchange books or register for local library membership. All these ideas still give you the experience of holding an actual book in your hands; however, the following tips are more technological. Trees are saved by listening to audiobooks or reading electronic versions on a tablet. 

Beauty. Most of the women wash their hair once every two days or even every day. Despite global quarantine and pandemic shifted their usual hair washing schedule, we can guarantee most of them using shampoos, conditioners and rejuvenating hair masks from plastic bottles. When they are empty, they are tossed straight to the bin and later end up in landfills worldwide. Solid shampoo bars have been available for quite some time, yet they are not that popular as shampoo bottles just for their packaging. Soon we will offer a fantastic solid shampoo with all the best hemp qualities – be patient!

Food. Oh, how sweet it is sometimes to take a day off from cooking and how convenient it is to have delicious food delivered right to your doorstep! Food delivery is a relatively new concept, yet it produces very much plastic packaging, which cannot be recycled and takes hundreds of years to decompose. Again, we can tackle this problem from two perspectives – restaurant and cafes should switch to recycled cardboard packaging and cutlery. As people mostly order food due to craving and impulses, one should be prepared for such situations in advance by filling their freezers with quick-to-made healthy food. Besides, we highly encourage you to buy all of the food in farmers markets – it is both more ecological and cheaper!

Many companies and brands are now changing their strategies to be as sustainable as possible. Biomedicanna is no exception in encouraging our customers to take care of nature; we at the same time are taking care of ourselves – our bodies, skin, mind, and well-being. We are advocating the reuse of items, thus preventing them from entering the landfill, so all of our cosmetic containers are perfect for a second life in your home – pour a bath salt, light a candle or put the jewellery. Remember, love for ourselves starts from loving our surroundings.

There's Nothing More Natural than Easter - and Tastier!

What is greener and warmer than Christmas but equally joyful and lovely? Of course – it’s Easter! For some people, Easter is just another weekend in the middle of the Spring season, while for others, it is a long-time celebration of rebirth and hope. With its roots hiding very far in the past, the modern-day Easter holiday is just as colourful as many of its symbols. Today we will flip through the pages of Easter’s history to reveal some interesting facts about its original celebration, unity with nature and Earth, and increasing trends. Let’s Spring festivities begin!

Do Traditional Approach Still Works?

One would not be mistaken when speaking about Easter from a religious point of view – the celebration takes place in more than ninety countries worldwide! As described by Britannica’s credible authors, Easter is a principal festival of the Christian church, which celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Despite two millennia passed since its earliest recorded observance, the tradition to celebrate on the 16th day of the first full moon of Spring lives on. Due to moon cycles, Easter’s exact date varies from March 22nd to April 25th, but agreements to make this date fixed never received much support. This year, we will celebrate Easter on April 4th. Some believers will only do so about two weeks later—this is another strange thing as some Christianity branches use different calendars (more on this in our Christmas blog).

In Unity with Nature

Even though a paragraph earlier we spoke about Easter deriving from faith and religion, some are more willing to accept celebrations roots reaching even further back in history; thus, continuing to debate the Easter’s linguistic origins. There is an approach recognizing Easter as a pagan festival with close ties to celebrating Spring equinox, which marks the arrival of astronomical spring in the Northern Hemisphere; surprisingly – people from Southern Hemisphere still celebrate Easter despite living in a middle of autumn! This year, Spring equinox fell on the same day – March 20th – as Earth Day. Since thousands of years ago, people mapped their life according to nature’s patterns; therefore, the day when the amount of darkness and daylight is identical made a pretty huge impact and allowed renewal.

Most Easter symbols are indeed related to nature. We sure all know the Easter bunny as a friendly fictional character who scatters around colourful painted eggs for little kids to find. As childish as it may seem, rabbits and hares get involved in the whole Easter thing due to being the symbol of fertility – Spring is the starting season of sowing crops and vegetables, so including rabbits into the mix does make sense. Similarly, the egg is one of the most well-known Easter symbols – its nature is commonly used to explain resurrection and return to life. You may now ask why these eggs were decorated as colouring seem to cover up their natural character? Well, the answer is quite simple as bold colours are easier to notice when the hunt begins and, of course, the metaphor of life is colourful.

Is it Still About Easter?

Easter and its symbols have been inseparable from one another for more than a few hundred years now. Little did people back then knew that one day their ideas and traditions would bring fortunes to sellers and businesses all around the world! Easter now as, any other national or international holiday, is commercialised and thematically put on every little piece of food or garment to sell it and make a profit from what once was a natural and pure celebration. From a marketing perspective, anything with Easter symbols sells very quickly, leaving only a handful of items to put on sale after the holiday ends. As we once talked about putting more effort into gifting and choosing more natural, hand-made presents, we often receive cute greeting cards complemented by edible bunnies or chocolate eggs – well, demand gives birth to supply.

While Easter chocolates are tasty, there are many ways to come back to our roots and highlight Easter’s original symbolic purpose – rebirth. Today we will share with you one fantastic recipe to bake in preparation for Easter with the hope of achieving a unique therapeutic effect and taking the stress off your shoulders – the recipe is so easy! Besides, we cannot maintain close physical contact with people we love this year again; we responsible picked out the recipe, which is perfect for baking treats, packing, and sending them for our family and friends to try. 

Biomedicanna’s team wishes you a lovely Easter! Stay safe!
