Cure By Design: Hemp Products For Sustainable Living!

    What comes in our mind first when we first hear the word “Hemp”? Marijuana, right? But Cure By Design is here to break the stereotypical perception of society. This Bangalore- based Hemp start-up, is trying to reimagine the future of Indian agriculture system and promoting a sustainable lifestyle with hemp. Kudos to the founder Daanish Mateen for inculcating a holistic improvement and healing approach by one of the most misunderstood plants with an ultimate aim to change the social stigma in India. They are working closely with farmers from Uttarakhand to launch a various range of Hemp Super Foods with great nutritional profile, cosmetics and apparels.
    The documented use of cannabis in India dates back to the Vedic period. Consumption and use of cannabis in colonial India were found to be very ancient and was harmless in moderation. Hemp’s use can be ranging extensively from medicine to fibres. The fabric produced from hemp is very high quality: crisp, skin-friendly and highly comfortable. Hemp seeds are harvested from a specific 0% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) strain of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant also known as industrial hemp. Industrial hemp has been scientifically proven to absorb more carbon-di-oxide per hectare than any forest or commercial crop and is, therefore, the ideal carbon sink. Its nutritious seeds can provide numerous health benefits which include weight loss, normalizing blood sugar levels (hemp can work wonders at regulating the sugar levels because of essential fatty acids content in hemp, which consists of the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to 3 for your body.), improved immunity because of essential fatty acid level along with linoleic acid and high levels of phytonutrients. You can even attain immune-boosting benefits by eating hemp food products with the highest fat concentration such as hulled hemp seeds (hearts) or hemp seed oil. Some researchers showed improved brain function by consumption of hemp in their studies. It is a great vegan source of protein in the diet. Hemp protein is a complete protein that contains all 9 essential amino acids and 2 semi-essential amino acids, making it win over many vegan protein alternatives such as pea or rice protein and highly comparable to meat, fish and eggs. In contrast to fish oil, Hemp seed oil contains the perfect ratio of Omega-6 (linoleic acid) to Omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid) fatty acids and free of metallic toxicity, unlike fish oils. It typically contains less than 0.3% THC, which makes it safer for your pets.

    If you’d like to try their stuffs, Cure By Design’s website will certainly spoil you for choice with toasted seeds, hemp Protein etc. I personally loved the Hemp Hearts which is shelled hemp seeds and can improve your digestion and also prevent heart diseases and diabetes as well. If you’re into fitness and heavy weight lifting and in need of a vegan protein supplement, then opt for the Hemp Protein Powder power-packed with 20 amino acids, making it ideal for building the muscle mass. For your dose of Omega 3,6 and 9., you can add the seeds in your smoothie bowls, muffins or in your fillings or doughs. Apart from these, they offer mask made of hemp fibres and hemp rejuvenating sanitizers as well.
