Masks made from hemp? - Or better yet, don’t wear them at all?
Just a few months ago, wearing a mask was not the social norm. But since the corona crisis, you can’t go anywhere or do anything without wearing a mask. Many governments have passed varying degrees of restrictions to contain Covid-19, including regulations requiring face masks or face shields. At Cannatrends we are very critical of these regulations, but this is where hemp could come in handy.

There is a lot of confusion about masks. Various scientific sources believe that wearing masks makes perfect sense. To this end, different masks were compared with one another and their effectiveness against viral diseases was tested. Other studies take a critical look at the effectiveness of masks; they could increase the bacterial and viral load in the air we breathe. Side effects such as dizziness, tiredness, fatigue and headaches due to difficulty breathing are all possible. Moisture also forms in the mask, which is a feeding ground for germs. However, it is controversial whether the exhalation of CO02 into the air is made more difficult. In everyday life, most of us do not wear respiratory masks, but rather scarves, self-sewn, or turquoise surgical masks made of synthetic fibers, or a face shield. Most respiratory masks are not suitable for protection against viruses at all, or are already contaminated from excessive use.

If we have to wear masks to survive the corona pandemic, how can we make the best out of a bad situation? One option is to refer to your healthcare provider and apply for a mask exemption. Difficulty breathing due to wearing a mask is a common symptom that can easily be diagnosed and certified by a doctor. If you still have to wear a mask, we can highly recommend our masks made of 100% hemp.

What are the advantages of masks made from hemp?
Hemp is a natural, fast growing and resource-saving raw material. It can be grown anywhere, with little effort, and quickly. Textiles can now be made from the hemp fiber. Jeans made from cannabis are particularly well regarded. They are more durable, robust and gentler on skin than cotton fibers. Of course, you can also make face masks from hemp fabric. They come with one great advantage: hemp fibers have an antibacterial effect and are gentle on skin. If you do decide to wear a mask, we recommend one of our hemp masks that you can order from our Online-Shop.
