11 May CBD Flowers Grown in Ireland
Ireland has a suitable climate for growing a fibre and seed-oil variety of hemp. Finola, is the name of the only licensed variety grown in Ireland. It’s a strong variety of industrial hemp that can reach 3m in height under Irish weather conditions and produce large quantities of high-quality fiber and seed. The processed hemp fibers are mainly exported to Europe for use in the manufacture of car parts such as linings and parcel shelves. Other uses include insulation, horticultural matting, poultry bedding, and as a construction material (hempcrete).
But this variety contains no cannabinoids and the seed-oil it produces is not suitable for CBD oils and tinctures
The Difference between hemp seed-oil and CBD oil
The cannabidiol-rich flowers, leaves and stalks are used to produce CBD oil. And the flowers dried and cured for smoking.
Hemp seed-oil comes from the seeds of the plant and, while they do not contain cannabinoids, they are rich in fatty acids and compounds suitable for animal feed and food production.
Hot climates produce the best hemp
The optimal temperature for growing hemp is 16o C at night and 28o C during the day, consecutively, throughout a flowering season. Ireland’s ‘average’ temperature from April to August is 10.7o C – 15.3o C with average soil temperatures of 7.7o C – 9.7o C. While this is suitable for industrial hemp the varieties that are richly abundant in cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids cannot grow at these temperatures. Any therapeutic CBD supplements that claim to be produced by Irish grown hemp would have very low to zero cannabinoid content. It’s simple – hot climates produce the best hemp!
