Time to Chill! – How to Balance Work and Summer Vacation?

Wait—what? Has August already started? Stop the time, someone, please! As we are counting the last days of this hellishly hot summer, we better spend the time productively to have something to talk about with our colleagues in the fall. While for some people, the last sentence summarized their entire lives, thousands if not millions still struggle to maintain a healthy balance of work and leisure. During the worldwide pandemic and many nationwide quarantines, our lifestyles got mixed up as we had both to work and spend our free time in the same place. The line separating two different activities was erased, and now it is the perfect time to put it back where it belongs. 

Today we will talk about balancing two things that don’t have much in common – work and vacation! How to balance two different worlds and finally find yourself a harmony? How to get the best of both in completely unlike situations? Let’s look for the key to the healthiest treasure of this century together, shall we?

Spicing Up Your Regular ‘9 to 5’

Pushing all quarantine worries aside, thousands of people in each country and city work in offices. There are two types of offices found everywhere you desire to look – old ones and new ones in today's world. We gave the name of old ones to those office buildings that lack natural light, have all their space divided into closed cabinets, and has a small kitchen as the only lounge area. On the other hand, new office buildings are the complete opposite – with lots of natural light, open layout, and lounge areas for people working there left, right, and centre. Despite noticeable logistical differences, office workers usually work 8 hours a day, five days a week, and has around 20 workdays off for holidays.

The real question is – how people are willing to spend their one month off from monotonous office work? In recent years, it became increasingly popular to have adventurous and active holidays to have an entirely opposite experience than sitting all day and doing nothing. Cycling with a group of friends, kayaking, or driving around Europe in your own car to visit the most beautiful places of the old continent… 

Active holidays are often more fun and much healthier for our bodies than all included seaside resorts with sky blue infinity pools and buffets filled with junk food. Passive holiday whereas more comfortable and less challenging is simply a continuation of the average office lifestyle, not an opportunity to escape the routine. Besides, passive holidays are more expensive than active holidays as the latter can be booked at the very last minute and does not require much preparation. Therefore, we strongly advise everyone wishing to have quality time and escape from work to choose active holidays in nature.

Being Your Own Boss – Kind of…

The pandemic forced many people to physically leave their jobs and work from home. Still, the unexpected changes were not unpleasant for some people. Working remote was a daily routine for thousands of people before the pandemic even began. People who freelance or just work remotely do not experience what it means to spend at least three days a year sitting in traffic jams, making them less nervous and calmer. All their commute to work consists of sitting comfortably at their desk and turning on their personal computer.

Still, even those who work from home or remote also deserve a holiday. Planning their vacation is much easier for them than for people working in the office. Many freelancers do not choose to reside in the city where their actual workplace is located and not even in the same country. Freelancers can afford to travel around the world if they are confident that their destination and vacation plans will not interfere with the quality of their work. While working on an exotic island in the middle of an ocean cannot be called a holiday, remote work is far healthier and more beneficial to our bodies than sitting in the same office cubicle for eleven months. 

If you’re determined to change your life, become a freelancer, or work from home this summer, remember that you’re still working, so you should maintain a regular work routine. Maintaining a balance of resting and working is crucial for your health and the quality of work you do. You will achieve the best results only after a great rest, no matter which corner of the world you decide to rest in. If you have any trouble finding your inner harmony, try our best-selling CBG Oil Drops Raw!

Work Plus Vacation – Mission Possible

The pandemic proved that working from home is far more productive than working from the office; this is confirmed by various studies and statistical surveys. Holidays have also been shown to significantly contribute to employee productivity, and the quality of their work as people return to work rested and with loads of new ideas. Still, companies sometimes cannot do without people in certain positions and are very reluctant to allow them on vacation or to work remotely. As this is becoming an increasingly common problem, we were all recently offered a solution – workation!

As the name suggests, here work is combined with vacation. Imagine going to a resort for a whole month or more instead of a week or only ten days! In the first part of the day, you work remotely, while the second part of the day is meant for your relaxation. However, such a combination requires a popular holiday destination and a comfortable place to work in the hotel where you have decided to stay. Seeing that this way of travelling and working is only gaining popularity every year, many of the best resorts and accommodations are already setting up unique workplaces, open-plan offices, or private office cubicles and renting them out to working travellers. Workation is not only a great way to maintain productivity, but also to relax, and even better, the fact that companies view this combination quite favourably and often contribute financially to such trips of their employees.

Have a great holiday!

Too long, didn’t read? Summer is the best time to have holidays and finally escape from tiring work. However, all people usually have different conditions when planning a holiday. Still, those who seek always find a way to combine work and vacation. No matter your work position, we advise you to prioritise active holidays before passive leisure. It is better for your health and sometimes your wallet to switch from a monotonous work routine to adventures at least once a year!

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.

Oncological Diseases: Knowing Your Enemy

No single medical diagnosis does not mean the end of the world. Of course, one may feel frustrated and lost once a doctor delivers the news about a serious disease: they get angry both at themselves and at the people around them, they quickly choose to blame themselves and others for untimely work and neglect. Our bodies do not thank us for further stressing and pouring rain of emotions as it only weakens both organism and spirit. Even though there is sometimes nothing that we may do to avoid diseases, we can always ease them. How to deal with one of the most anticipated diagnoses – oncological diseases?

What we know about oncological diseases?

Our bodies are a complex connection between trillions of cells every having different functionality. Once old cells die, new cells take their place. However, this ordinary process may be disturbed when cells start to grow abnormally and out of control. Such cells form tumours, which can be two types – malignant and benign. The latter type of tumours is not cancer as benign masses tend to grow slowly but do not spread. Malignant tumours, on the other hand, can grow incredibly quickly, and as they spread throughout the body, they destroy normal healthy tissue along the way.

Oncologists distinguish four main groups of oncological diseases:

Besides these four types of cancer, there are many others – as they are less common, one should consider further researching them and consulting expert oncologists. However, the typology of oncological diseases does not end here: the severity of cancer diagnosis is determined by stages I to IV. Stage I means the cancerous tumour is small and has not yet grown into nearby tissues; stage IV means the cancer is advanced and has already spread into other parts of the body.

What we know about causes of cancer?

The diagnosis of the oncological disease can be like thunder from the clear sky. However, paying regular visits to doctors and signing up for preventive screenings help. Besides, they are compensated by government initiatives. The numbers of oncological diseases have reached never seen highs in recent years with the major cases being diagnosed in the last stages having little to no chance of saving a person’s life. As the largest part of losses could have been avoided by regular preventing screenings, a lot of countries have declared the prevention of oncological diseases a national health objective.

Expert oncologists advise everyone, no matter their age or sex, to have a discussion with family practitioners about the genetic side and prevention of oncological diseases if they seem to run in the family. As genes are inherited, the causes of cancer may lie within the family’s history. The fact itself that your mum, dad, or one of the grandparents have fought cancer does not mean that you will do too, but the risk of oncological diseases is much higher this way.

Doctors also link some types of cancer with certain factors, which may not directly cause disease but can increase the risk of receiving the bad news. Reducing the risk factors helps to avoid oncological diseases, but the first step to a healthy life is acknowledging the vulnerability of life itself. Smoking, alcohol, high-fat diet, or constant exposure to UV light are the things that cause lung, skin, liver, or colon cancer, etc. Adults, in this case, are more vulnerable when compared to children as these factors are most harmful after long periods of exposure.

Doctors and medical researches do not rule out the possibility of getting cancer after virus exposure. As cancer is not contagious, you will never get it from contacting another person. However, as HIV causes AIDS, it can also lead to cell changes, which may develop into oncological diseases. It is more common to get cancer after being exposed to certain environmental factors for long periods. Such conditions include working with chemicals, in construction, or doing similar jobs as defective personal protection equipment can lead to higher levels of dangerous exposure.

What we know about curing oncological diseases?

Any type of cancer is easiest to cure when diagnosed in the earliest stages. Even if one finds themselves fighting this disease, being diagnosed with stage 1 cancer is nothing to worry about as there are plenty of methods and experimental medicine to cure it. Some types of cancer may be removed surgically, but there is always the risk of cancerous cells to spread. There is also a way of finding donors, which is usually close family members, to donate their bone marrow to the patient of leukaemia with a change of curing it and prolonging a person’s life. Besides, chemotherapy is considered to be the most common way; chemotherapy uses several types of chemotherapeutic agents, which may be given with curative intent, or may prolong the life of patients together with reducing cancer symptoms.

Medical researches and oncologists agree that chemotherapy helps cancer patients survive, but such treatment also has a negative side. The most common side-effect of chemotherapy is hair loss; it is also the most visible one as other side-effects include gastrointestinal distress, anaemia, infertility, and sometimes can lead to significant organ damage. Other side-effects of chemotherapy also include extensive nausea and vomiting. As these issues are quite simple to cure for ordinary human with the help from a local drugstore, cancer patients are forced to use extremely powerful drugs which has their own side-effects.

Some cancer patients who experience very strong side-effects and constant pain choose to use products from nature to ease it including CBD. There is no reliable information or medical research of CBD oil curing oncological diseases, but many cancer patients use it for relieving pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, etc. As symptoms of both cancer and chemotherapy are pretty severe and exhausting, patients and their family members are looking for CBD oil drops or CBG  paste with the highest possible product concentration on the market as it has the highest potential.

The diagnose of oncological diseases does not mean the end of the world, so let’s just think of it as a tough chapter from your favourite video game, which everyone will eventually pass. The disease itself does not matter as long as you are surrounded by your loved ones caring and rooting for you every step of the way. It helps to know every inch of your body very well and spending enough time for quality self-care procedures, including preventive cancer screenings – it saves lives.

Attention! Immune system prepares for fight!

The human body is a vulnerable thing: it requires special care and protection not only during the abnormal summer heats but also during freezing winter frosts and other dangers. Let’s admit, it is easy to prepare for and fight off objects and feels that one can see or sense; however, such a process gets way trickier when you must challenge things that are invisible to a naked eye - pathogens. It’s our immune system that does all of the hard work protecting us from dangerous viruses and bacteria, although investing in strengthening it always pays off.

What’s the immune system?

It is easier to think about the immune system as really high and steep stone walls surrounding the castle – the human body. As hostile persons – pathogens from viruses and bacteria – try to enter the castle, they are immediately blocked by strong and invincible walls. However, as time goes by and the walls are exposed to changing weather conditions, they are likely to collapse if unsupervised or show weaknesses, thus needing constant strengthening works and additions.

One immune system – plenty of immunities

According to immunology scientists, in the medical world, the body’s immune system is distinguished in several different segments. All people are brought into this world having innate immunity – pre-programmed body cells that identify harmful substances in a matter of seconds and fight them; it’s the equivalent of using walls for protection that were already there. The adaptive immune system is a complete opposite of innate immunity - it’s a more advanced way to beat pathogens as it can remember them by storing information in itself on how to do it; it reminds building a new wall around the castle.

The adaptive immunity is further subdivided into natural passive and active, and artificial active and passive immunity, which all have contrasting acquiring processes. Natural-passive immunity refers to pregnancy months as a fetus receives antibodies to fight pathogens through the placenta or when nursing. Natural-active immunity forms once the person is done dealing with a live pathogen and forms immunological memory of such a process.

Artificial-passive immunity includes transferring one person’s blood to another, thus forcing one’s cells to share information on how to fight the pathogens to other’s cells. Artificial-active immunity stands for vaccination, after which antigens simulate a possible response to a small number of pathogens, and later knows how to destroy the disease as a whole. However, it doesn’t matter which type of immunity guards your body’s castle - it matters that you reinforce the complete picture of defending walls in time!

What happens once the immune system fails?

If the walls defending the castle fail to stop intruders, the castle itself becomes weak and damaged; immunology scientists divide such a situation into several categories depending on how the body deals with attackers – pathogens:

•           autoimmunity disorder happens when the body’s immune system isn’t capable of distinguishing positive cells from destroyable bad ones and decides to attack both;

•           hypersensitivity is a smart name for the body’s immune system destroying its own harmless cells instead of faulty invader ones;

•           immunodeficiency occurs when the body’s immune system loses its capability to fight or gets compromised by short-term events. Even though some of the cases of immunodeficiency is inherited, modern-day problems - alcoholism, obesity, and drug use - determine the largest amount of overall cases.

Tips on how to strengthen the immune system

Most of the time, the body’s immune system is strong enough to produce antigens and destroy pathogens without harming the actual person. However, as immune systems get weaker and start to struggle to fulfill its task, some immunity-strengthening methods and means are not optional but obligatory.

An average human spends about one-third of a lifetime sleeping – roughly 25 years, so anywhere from 7 to 9 hours every night. As regular sleep routine and quality rest maintain physical and mental well-being, it adds up to strengthening the immune system as well. We advise everyone to re-check their sleeping schedules and ensure a clean, relaxing, and stress-free sleeping environment.

As humans get all the energy needed to support the smooth working of the body from the nutrients, the only way to get them is through consuming healthy foods. Nutritionists advise people to eat a diet that would include foods from every group of the food pyramid. That means mostly eating grains and cereals following by various fruits and vegetables, not forgetting meats and dairy, but abstaining from eating lots of fats and sugars. It is also necessary to stay hydrated as water carries oxygen to one’s body cells and removes toxins from the body.

Scientists agree that about 30 to 60 minutes of exercise – walking, running, swimming, etc. - a day improves the body’s immune system and its ability to fight pathogens from viruses, germs, and bacteria. As it helps maintain healthy body weight and avoid obesity, regular and properly performed exercises adds up to both physical and mental health. Fitness experts also suggest showering under cold water or having an ice bath once in a while as it helps the immune system to fight off any remaining unwanted substances out from the body.

We are educated about the cost of harmful habits and addictions every step of the way; however, scientists recently found out that there are more than quarter-billion people dependent on alcohol in the world. No matter the addiction – alcohol, smoking, or drugs, such practices leaves permanent damage not only on the outside of the body but internally. As it weakens organs to perform their functions, prolonged periods of untreated addiction may result in autoimmunity problems.

One of the easiest ways to improve the immune system is to buy pharmaceutical preparations; however, as there is plenty of variety of vitamins and pills, one can do more damage to the immune system rather than good. As people all around the world pay more attention to what kind of medicine they put into their bodies, a lot of them choose homeopathic and time-proven remedies. There is a saying that nature provides humans with everything it needs, so drinking herbal teas is a logical way to strengthen the immune system, but make sure you know what you are about to consume beforehand!

There is one particular type of means to improve the strength of the immune system, which is only gaining popularity. CBD oil and other products are considered the new black as it has valuable anti-inflammatory features, helps prevent an immune response, and easies some autoimmune sicknesses. CBD oil can improve the way how precisely the immune system remembers harmful pathogens, thus speeding up the future recovery process and ensuring overall physical and mental well-being.

It doesn’t matter which methods you will choose to strengthen your immunity system as this process focus more on consistent efforts and positivity. Although we recommend you avoid saving when it comes to health and its improvement, there are plenty of options of how economically one can strengthen immunity right at home.

OMG…! Is that CBG??!

CBG. After hearing or seeing these three letters for the first time, one could most probably imagine anything… It can sound as a shortened saying of a city in USA, a comics character (probably the evil one), or a name of a music band. For some, it could even sound as a condition of a serious illness. Imagine someone saying – ‘Today I had an appointment with my GP and got to know that I have too much CBG in my blood!’ Or else, the expression itself even sounds like ‘OMG’. But really, what does this all stand for? If you turn on a Google search engine on your computer and fill this in, it leads to several different acronyms, that are too interesting not to share. For your entertainment, there are the funniest ones:

CBG Corticosteroid Binding Globulin

CBG Chicago Botanic Garden

CBG Comic Book Guy (The Simpsons)

CBG Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée (French: Bauxite Company of Guinea; Guinea)

CBG Crazy Boys Generation (band)

And many more… Among around a hundred of acronyms, the one on the 12th place of the list we get is ‘Cannabigerol’.

What is this? And why could this be important? 

Our topic will be focused on this (curiously sounding) term, which exclusively covers the whole article. First of, Cannabigerol is a substance that comes from a Cannabis plant. By now, most people familiar with cannabis have heard of such terms as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), and, of course, most people know their effects. But there are many, many more compounds in this. One of a lesser - known cannabinoids is called cannabigerol (CBG), and while (in most occasions) not present in large quantities, it is, nonetheless, worth learning about this one, - for number of reasons.

So, how is CBG made?

Because it is present in low levels (usually less than 1%) in most cannabis strains, just because of the quantity, CBG is considered one of a ‘minor’ cannabinoids. Cannabis plants naturally produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).

If you’d be wondering how the CBG looks like (or how beautiful it is), here is an example:                                                                 

This picture resembles the molecule of CBG,- such an important substance, that has been found to act as a matter having a really high affinity,- Cannabigerol has been shown to relieve intraocular pressure, which may be of benefit in the treatment of glaucoma. It has been shown to improve a model of inflammatory bowel disease induced experimentally in mice. CBG can also affect positively the reactions in the brain, therefore can decrease anxiety and muscle tension.

CBG’s potential and medical benefits

CBG is not as much of a known substance, although lab-testing and research is being done on considering a possible high, very positive benefits for a human-kind today and in the future. This might be of a matter that we won’t imagine our lives without it soon, and I mean very soon: 

The human body’s built-in endocannabinoid system (ECS) works to keep the body in its balanced state. While there are specific details about how cannabinoids work, in general the endocannabinoid system performs different functions specific to each area of the body. The ECS is largely comprised of endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes that are believed to help regulate a variety of functions in humans including sleep, mood, memory, appetite, reproduction, and pain sensation. For example, at an injury site, the ECS can help regulate immune cells to limit inflammation. This means, that it serves a vital purpose for our health and well-being because it regulates key aspects of our biology.

Researches have been done

There are done some specific researches, and results for medicinal use are very promising:

Endocannabinoid receptors are prevalent in eye structures, and interestingly, CBG is thought to be particularly effective in treating glaucoma because it reduces intraocular pressure. It is a powerful vasodilator and has neuroprotective effects to boot.

In a recent 2015 study, CBG was shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington’s disease, which is characterized by nerve cell degeneration in the brain.

CBG is showing great promise as a cancer fighter. Specifically, CBG was shown to block receptors that cause cancer cell growth. In one such study, it was shown to inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells in mice, thereby slowing colon cancer growth.

European research shows evidence that CBG is an effective antibacterial agent, particularly against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) microbial strains resistant to several classes of drugs. Since the 1950s, topical formulations of cannabis have been effective in skin infections, but researchers at the time were unaware of the plant’s chemical composition.

In a very recent 2017 study, researchers showed that a form of CBG was a very effective appetite stimulant in rats. This may lead to a novel non-psychotropic therapeutic option for cachexia, the muscle wasting and severe weight loss seen in late stage cancer and other diseases.

In a study that looked at the effects of five different cannabinoids on bladder contractions, CBG tested best at inhibiting muscle contractions, so it may be a future tool in preventing bladder dysfunction disorders.

Scientists are excited, so should we!  These initial CBG results are a path for the bright future. Scientists are promoting further research with CBG alone or in combination with other cannabinoids and use it in therapies for the treatment of multiple maladies. Because it is non-psychotropic, CBG has a promising wide range of potential applications not only for the problems mentioned above, but also as an analgesic, therapy for psoriasis, and effective antidepressant.

Hemp - The Mother Plant

You probably know that CBD is cannabinoid found in the magical hemp plant. But did you know about all the other fantastic uses of hemp worldwide?

To start, hemp is one of the most useful plants in the whole world. It’s greatly sustainable and can be used to make so many things, it’s truly incredible!

Just to name a few, hemp can be used to build your home, feed your family, dress you in the finest attire, hold your notes, change the worlds plastic problem and even fuel your car!

Hempcrete - the future of housing construction

You may not be able to make an entire house out of hemp, but the great thing is that hemp is quick-growing, requires few pesticides or fertilisers, and the process of turning the harvested hemp into building materials like hempcrete is simple and environment-friendly.

Hemp seeds - small but very versatile

Hemp seeds are rich in protein, omega-3, E and B vitamins, magnesium, potassium and iron. The seeds can be consumed raw or cold pressed to produce hemp seed oil and protein. Hemp seed protein can be used to produce virtually any product made from soybean: tofu, veggie burgers, butter, cheese, salad oils, ice cream, milk, etc. It’s a true superfood!

Hemp textile - the future of sustainable fashion

Despite making up less than 1% of all textile products, hemp is a good source of fabric. Why? Hemp fabric is anti-microbial, has a high tensile strength, breathes better than cotton, and gets softer with age. In order to grow enough cotton to make just one T-shirt, you would need 720 gallons of water. Hemp requires half as much.

Hemp paper - protector of trees

On an annual basis, 1 acre of hemp will produce as much paper as 2 to 4 acres of trees. It also can be produced much quicker as hemp only requires around 120 days to grow. From tissue paper to cardboard, all types of paper products can be produced from hemp.  This makes the raw material super sustainable and eco-friendly!

Hemp plastic - a must for a sustainable future

When made with biodegradable polymers, hemp plastic is completely biodegradable, unlike regular plastics. Compared to petroleum-based plastics, hemp plastic doesn’t contain any toxic substances and is 3.5 times stronger and 5 times stiffer. As a result, hemp plastics are more safe and durable.

Hemp bio-fuel - keeping the ozone clean

Non-toxic bio-diesel is produced by the pressing of hemp seeds to extract their oils & fats. After the extraction, the product is then put through more steps to make it into a usable hemp bio-fuel for your car. Hemp seed oil can also be used as a lubricative, oily ingredient in the processes to produce paint, varnish, detergent or ink. Because hemp seeds account for up to half the weight of a mature hemp plant, hemp seed is a viable source for these products.

No other natural resource offers the potential of hemp. Cannabis Hemp is capable of producing significant quantities of vital every day materials in a much more sustainable fashion. Unlike other crops, hemp can grow in most climates and on most farmland throughout the world with moderate water and fertilizer requirements, few pesticides, and no herbicides.

Hemp is truly the future.
