Join E1011 Labs as they explore the symbiotic relationship between hemp and bees
Do bees really need to be saved?
Bees. While we may dread their sting, we can all appreciate the vital role they play in preserving our delicate ecosystem. Currently, bees assist in the production of nearly 84% of crops consumed by humans. For all of the hard work they put in, day in and day out, they should be exalted as one of Planet Earth’s premier species. Unfortunately, instead of rewarding them for their commitment to keeping this gloomy world filled with flowers and fresh food, we have instead polluted their colonies with pesticides and, as a result, caused their population to plummet to the point of near extinction.
No Bees = No More of Nature’s Sweetest Gifts
Now, you may be thinking: “So what, we lose a few lilies here and there; big whoop!” Well, there is actually quite a bit more to it than that. After all, bees do more than just pollinate flowers that can be arranged into a pretty bouquet; they pollinate the crops that we rely on for food (think: apples, berries, beans, pears, and more). You can thank the bees for full grocery store shelves.
Once the bees go extinct, it’s only a matter of time before we do. At the very least, we would face unprecedented levels of famine, far greater than that one time Ireland ran out of spuds.
Make a Buzz: Take Action
Now you may be wondering: what can I do to keep the bees alive and thriving? Well, if you’re a supporter of E1011 Labs, then congratulations; you are already doing your part! A new study has found that hemp may hold the solution to halting the downfall of our preeminent pollinators. Over the years, many have come to understand the versatility of the cannabis plant. In fact, this versatility is likely one of the primary reasons why it was made illegal in the first place.
Hemp production has not waned, and with it comes enough pollen to support sixteen different species of bees, according to that same study.
What We Are Doing
At E1011 Labs, we pride ourselves in our commitment to sustainability throughout our entire production process. All of our farmers are held to the highest standards to ensure that their pastures remain as green as possible, which has done wonders for the quality of our product. Furthermore, our products themselves, composed of biodegradable cartridge shells and packaged in recycled paper, provide consumers with a more eco-friendly alternative to the ubiquitous metal and plastic pods that have flooded the hemp space.
As a result, we can confidently say that we are at the forefront of the fight to save the bees-- and so are you! As long as you stick with us and our top-of-the-line hemp, those little buzzing beauties will bounce back in no time.
