Hemp and Pest/Disease Resistance: Keeping Plus CBD Oil Clean

Hemp farming is sustainable

At Plus CBD Oil, we know that every agricultural crop on our planet crop faces the twin challenges of pests and disease. Some crops are more susceptible to these risks, and widespread monocropping has contributed to this vulnerability. Without the use of pesticides and other chemical controls, the mega-farms that use monocropping techniques would likely be ravaged by various pests and disease. Further, the use of chemical controls often has a broad and negative impact on the environment.

Fortunately, hemp is unusually hardy, and is more resistant than most crops to both pests and disease. In fact, part of the reason that hemp garners so much excitement among conservationists is because of its natural resilience. This natural advantage allows many farmers around the world to successfully cultivate agricultural hemp without ever subjecting it to unwanted pesticides and chemicals.

German biotech research organization Nova Institute released a report titled “Ecological Benefits of Hemp and Flax Cultivation and Products. In it, they noted that, “due to its vigorous growth, shading capacity and disease resistance, hemp can be grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides or fungicides.”
