26 Apr HempMeds® Participates in 28th Annual San Diego EarthFair as Sponsor and Exhibitor
Saturday was Earth Day – and throughout the world, people celebrated our planet all weekend long with awareness events, clean-up days, educational nature walks, and more to ensure that the earth is a viable home for generations to come.
To celebrate Earth Day this year, HempMeds® participated in the San Diego EarthFair as a major sponsor.
With over 60,000 estimated attendees this year, the 28th Annual EarthFair drew crowds of all ages to Balboa Park to learn, play, and participate in a wide range of activities centered on a healthier, more sustainable world. There were hundreds of booths and a number of educational activities for the whole family to instill a respect for the planet in everyone who attended.
A new addition to this year’s EarthFair was the Canna Village. Made up of over 40 booths, this section of the event was dedicated to all things cannabis, including medical marijuana dispensaries, cannabis brands, and manufacturers of retail hemp products, like HempMeds®. It was the goal of the Canna Village to reveal how marijuana and hemp are both beneficial to the body and healthy for the planet.
Hemp is a renewable resource that can be used to produce wellness products, food, and thousands of other products with a range of applications. The plant’s chemical and nutritional make-up and its environmentally friendly characteristics allow it to serve as a means of healing for both the planet and for us.
At the HempMeds® booth, EarthFair attendees learned about the benefits of hemp and hemp oil products, were able to try HempMeds® products from our brands like Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ and Dixie Botanicals® firsthand, and could purchase CBD products to take home with them that day.
Hemp is an excellent source of nutrition, containing protein, healthy fats, and vitamins and minerals, as well as cannabinoids that promote homeostasis and balance within the body’s systems. For this reason, hemp oil has become popular to promote wellness.
However, hemp is also important to the earth’s sustainability. Hemp efficiently absorbs atmospheric CO2 to help combat climate change and can be used to clean up brownfield sites. Because it can be used to create paper pulp, hemp protects forests from unnecessary destruction. Its fiber can also be used for cordage or cloth. Finally, since it can be used to make bioplastics and biofuel, hemp is an earth-friendly way to remove our reliance on fossil fuels.
HempMeds® is proud to have been given the opportunity to participate in this year’s inaugural Canna Village as part of the San Diego EarthFair. We look forward to working with our local and global communities in the future to further build a culture of sustainability and conservation.
