HEMP THEN AND NOW
According to Wikipedia, Hemp was one of the first plants spun about 10,000 years ago. The history of hemp use is long and has multi uses. Example Russia in 600 BCE made rope, the Arabs around 900 were self-taught in making hemp paper, in the 1600’s Jamestown settlers made rope, sails for their boats, and clothing. It is also said in Wikipedia that in the 1700’s American farmers were required by law to grow hemp 1840 Abraham Lincoln uses Hemp Seed oil. Then it was banned.
Our Industrial Hemp Industries are working hard to bring hemp back into the markets. With so many dwindling natural resources, or so many with a high cost for everyday products, with the damages we are doing to the earth by not using alternative energy and plants that can replace other corps producing less, taking up great amounts of water with not a great return, hemp should be our answer and its return should not be such an issue.
The Hemp Industry, would not only bring back cheaper rope, paper, cloth product, but other items now being produced like stronger, better building material, automobile frames (look up the hemp cars, awesome), musical instruments, replacement for plastic food containers with bio-degradable containers and health care product, which is where I come in.
A species of kenaf – hibiscus cannabinus L (family-malvaceae),related to cotton, okra,although it is a great fiber and textile plant it is not considered hemp. Kenaf’s history has been in twine,sackcloth,and other domestic uses. There are many cultivars of Kenaf, but it is this species we are interested in. Secondary use: cooking and fuel oil. Edible: young leaf are used to add to soup, steamed for greens, seeds ground for flour.Our research is using this Kenaf related to folk medicine, for bruising,fever,external pain and for the omega oils. Our ear drops that are for human and animals is now part of our product line. I created this for my menieres issues. It work well also for dogs that seem to be having an ear issue but with no known cause.
I am sure you have heard of CBD, it is one of the many cannabinoids being found in hemp. There are now universities, and medical facilities doing research on just this one element of the many cannabinoids.
Which is good, then there will be more information so that people can get a better understanding of Industrial Hemp, and all its species and the differences between it and the cousin marijuana. Bad part is that there are companies that want again, to make yet another synthetics CBD, taking away its natural elements, but a debate for another day.
My company is White Elk Creations, my goal is to create tintures and body products for general well-being for our pet companions and there caretakers, using the many benefits of Industrial Hemp and Kenaf ( hibiscus cannabinus L) more so when combined with other great herbs mother earth has given us.
Our best dog product to date,Why? First it was created for my use on my issues with nerve pain, deep pain, poor sleep, and tension. Second working with all my dogs and those of people who now use the nervine,and several veterinarians who refer out for our product, we have found out dogs have similar issues and are help by trying the nervine. Another issues that seems to be helped by the nervine, according to customer’s information is minor seizures, and help with increased appetite.
As always with any herb, I suggest you ask your vet about any supplements before using, also view the contraindication section on our sight, to see if this is acceptable for your best friend.
There are a handful of wonderful alternative veterinarians that are open and willing to work with us when it comes to to herbs, Industrial hemp, kenaf, but others not so much and who often have stinging criticism, I hope that changes, as they realize they can offer alternatives to their clients, often at a lower cost without the side effects.
The new extract for White Elk Creations for pets is the Spectrum oil. It is a single plant formula, Industrial hemp.

Muscle Balm Salve:
This muscle balm with cbd is an amazing! it has a history of doing good things since 2002, and again like all the products White Elk carries, I created for issues I have, due to arthritis ( told lupus)so muscle pain, foot pain, constant bone pain, more so with my knee implant, shoulder pins.
The salve is, analgesic so works on inflammation issues related to joint pain, arthritic pain, muscle twitching, research is saying cbd in such salves can help with production of bone growth and repair.
Place a bit on the temple area when stuffed up, and great rub for colds and flu. Great for feet at night, and it feels good. NEVER cover the salve, put socks on and never on any open cut, spore or wound.
