How to Grow Your Own Hemp Oz Scoby

  Have you ever noticed the little “floatie” bits in the bottom of your kombucha bottle? Would you believe that these are actually newly formed baby Scoby’s?

Fermented Foods, The Gut, and The Immune System

Fermented foods and beverages such as Kombucha, yoghurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir account for roughly one-third of the global human diet and have been found to positively support gut health. Some experts even recommend that fermented foods be included in national dietary recommendations. Many fermented foods contain 1 million to 1 billion viable microbes per gram or millilitre, and a large portion of those may survive passage through the digestive tract, therefore eating fermented foods has the potential to increase the number of microbes in the diet by up to ten thousand-fold. Many species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium help crowd out...

Is The Healing Power of Hemp Medicine or Myth?

Herbal remedies have been around for millennia. So, it’s kind of interesting that we would rather pop a synthetic pill prescribed by a doctor than trust ancient wisdom or simple home-made, natural treatments. When we get sick or have a chronic condition, we assume the latest advancements in medicine will be more effective than a natural treatment used for generations. If there is no known cure in Western medicine, we simply accept our fate. The truth is modern medicine doesn’t have all the answers. Researchers around the world continue to seek the holy grail of health and the cure for...
