Anavii Market interviews holistic nutritionist, herbalist, and hemp farmer Linda Lin about her passion for hemp’s holistic benefits.
What inspired you to get into the hemp industry?
As a holistic nutritionist and herbalist, I am really passionate about using food and plants to assist the body's natural ability to heal. Working with a nutritionist is not covered by most insurance and is a service that only some can afford - so I started wondering, what can I do to help more people and on a larger scale? I realized most people are running around popping pills that temporarily mask their discomfort but often leave their health issues unresolved with some added side effects. Creating natural remedies for everyday ailments became my mission. Once I had that idea in mind, it's as if the Universe conspired to help me. Hemp found me!
What is Gullybean?
Gullybean is my hemp farm and plant medicine company. "Gully bean" is a small bitter bean that grows in the "gullies" of Jamaica, it is an overlooked plant that is edible with lots of medicinal properties. Hemp has a long history in Jamaica and my business partner is half Jamaican as well. The idea of bringing overlooked plants to the spotlight is what we're going for. The first tincture I created for the company is a CBD + Black Cumin Seed + Turmeric tincture, it's an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant powerhouse loaded with Omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids that I hope will replace the "extra strength pain relief" product that's in most homes. I believe that products that you put in your body should not only make you feel better but also improve your health with long-term use.
How has hemp helped you?
It has introduced to me a new community of like-minded individuals which I am forever grateful for. On a physical level, I love the way I feel when I use my tincture. I feel more grounded, in tune with my body, calm and it has really improved my sleep and meditation practice. I also love using hemp seeds in my food - yum!
What's it like being a hemp farmer?
Hard work but no vitamin D deficiency here! Watching something grow right in front of your eyes is spectacular, I don't have children but I imagine it feels a bit like that. You also deal with a lot of uncertainty, but those experiences make you tougher. We were extremely lucky, we grew in the black soil region of the Hudson Valley - the soil is organic and beyond nutritious, all we needed was some sun and water and our babies shot right up to the sky.
How can others boost their wellness with hemp?
Give CBD a try if you haven't already. It has such a long list of health benefits, I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like it. Not all CBD products are equal, take some time to learn about it and make sure you find a company that is transparent about their growing and extraction process and aligns with your values and needs.
If you could choose one nutrition hack, what would it be?
Eat the rainbow - (Whole foods, not Skittles!) Aim to eat all the colors of the rainbow every day, i.e. red peppers, oranges, yellow squash, this is an easy way to get a diverse range of phytonutrients in your diet.
