You’ve heard us clink our glasses to biodynamic, raw and natural wines. Therefore, you can only imagine our delight at our latest discovery—scratch that—our latest passion, regeneratively farmed CBD. Onda Wellness is a pioneer in regenerative hemp crops and is bringing farm-to-bottle CBD tinctures to the market at an unprecedented level of integrity. Firstly, there are the obvious regenerative benefits for Planet Earth, but Onda’s biodynamic processes also enhance the quality of CBD. Read: a true win-win-win situation for climate, consumer and the farming community.
Maybe you’ve already seen Netflix’s Kiss The Ground and been moved by the healing potential of regenerative farming. If you’ve been putting it off because you’re afraid that it’ll be another soul-crushing, no hope in sight, the planet is doomed PSA—it’s not. In fact, quite the opposite. The film reminds us that a powerful solution to the planet’s climate challenge is literally under our feet—soil. More specifically, the doco details the process of “regenerative agriculture” AKA a new (but actually old) approach to farming that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world. Also, it’s narrated by Woody Harrelson, need we say more?
Anyhow—apart from Kiss The Ground being an overall great watch—it’s also a great insight into Onda Wellness’ approach to hemp farming. For us, one of the biggest takeaways was that the concept of “sustainable” just isn’t enough anymore. As the brand explains, “we are past the point of sustaining on this planet with the way things are going. We need not just neutral existence but proactive and beneficial action and participation from all beings to try to heal the damage to the Earth.”
As part of their commitment to a regenerative future, Onda Wellness source their crops from a number of certified biodynamic farms that cultivate hemp alongside vegetables, herbs, and flowers using regenerative practices.
Ugh, doesn’t the realization that this type of farming can not only stop—but reverse—CO2 emissions, just ease your climate anxiety? And we haven’t even taken our CBD yet.
Now, let’s talk quality product. Any CBD connoisseur worth their weight in hemp knows that the best CBD comes from the best crop. Onda explains, “You can stock your shelves with all the organic products on the market, but that doesn’t mean you’re consuming healthy, nutrient-rich foods.”
Onda believes in working with natural systems when it comes to farming, and holding onto the natural life force from seed to finished product to make sure they’re providing the cleanest possible plant medicine.
Erin Willis, Onda’s Head of Education, explains, “We use an old-world apothecary approach to infuse our hemp into oil, using certified, organic coconut oil, time, pressure, heat and water. That’s it. By using our oil, you’re experiencing true healing by consuming whole plant medicine that is clean of pesticides, solvents like butane, alcohol, or ethanol, and any heavy metals or toxins.”
Just like with consuming whole food nutrition versus enriched bread or vitamin supplements, CBD is more effective and bioavailable when working in synergy with the rest of the hemp plant.
If you want to get even more micro on why Onda Wellness is not like other CBD brands, Erin breaks down their trademarked Whole Hemp™ CBD infusion process by compound, “[Our] infusion process–that is, pulling the plant from the hemp fibers into coconut oil—still contains the other healthful cannabinoids like CBG, CBN, THC, as well as the natural range of beneficial terpenes, flavonoids (cannaflavins), antioxidant-rich chlorophyll, polyphenols, amino acids, and other healthy fatty acids. True Whole Hemp™ CBD should have a deep green color and a leafy green taste.”
If you like to geek out on the science of CBD, have a passion for regenerative farming, or are just looking for one of the most effective products on the market, we can’t recommend Onda Wellness enough. Their entire Whole Hemp™ CBD oils are medicinal products that work inside the body, and you can feel the great responsibility the brand places in creating something clean enough to put rebuild our bodies, and regenerative enough to rebuild our soil.
