Caveman Loved CBDs: Fusing the Paleo Diet with CBD Products

What would a caveman or cavewoman really eat? For those embarking on a Paleo diet, this is the central question. The motivation for pondering such a question comes from the desire to simplify our diets and to eat foods that are unprocessed, unaltered, and good for our bodies.

Now, not everyone needs to follow a strict Paleo-style diet – we get that these are very personal choices about food consumption. However, we want to share why we choose Paleo recipes for our CBD products to create winning combinations for everyone.

Paleo what?

The Paleolithic “Paleo” diet is based on the caveman principle: “If the cavemen didn’t eat it then you shouldn’t either.”* This focus on the eating practices of our ancestors was popularized by Loren Cordain in his 2002 book, The Paleo Diet. The Paleo diet embraces foods that would have been available to people during Paleolithic times – developing a menu around foods that can be foraged for, hunted, or gathered. Anything else – not an option. While our creative imaginations might be able to conjure up images of cave people gathering sticks of butter and picking candy bars off of trees – the Paleo diet is based on what would have actually occurred. This means sculpting your diet around nuts, seeds, meats, fish, leafy greens, and other regionally available and unprocessed foods.

How does Humboldt Harvest follow the Paleo diet?

At Humboldt Harvest, we call our edible products “foodicinals” for a variety of reasons, but in large part because of our belief that food is medicine. Our recipes always include the most nutritious ingredients and are prepared in alignment with the Paleo diet. This means that instead of relying on ingredients such as refined sugar, we honor the ingredients of our ancestors and use maple syrup and honey – sweeteners that are found in nature.

Coconut, almond flour, and fresh berries are just a few of the delectable ingredients used to create our foodicinals. We always strive for happy taste buds, healthy bodies, and healing benefits. As it turns out, Paleo eating is not only nutritious, but delicious! You can find out more about our ingredients here.

What would cavemen say about CBDs?

The history of the cannabis plant spans back as far as the Paleolithic era – 10,000 years ago. While uses of the plant have changed and evolved since that time, both fiber and flower have offered benefits to humans for thousands of years. Combining CBD oil with our Paleo recipes comes from the motivation to find our road to health through nature. Supercharging Paleo foods with CBDs means faster physical recovery, improved body care, and a reliance on natural remedies – that’s something we think the cavemen would have supported!

At Humboldt Harvest, we believe that health starts with wholesome ingredients – just like the Paleo philosophy. Our award-winning treats are a fusion of historical food knowledge and contemporary solutions for wellness. Find out more about the healing benefits of CBDs here and enjoy your adventure to wellness.
