Hops_for_Adoption_Page

Humulus lupulus is a perennial vine in the family Cannabaceae and is native to Europe, Asia, and North America. Hops are used in beer-making, to flavor food and as a perfume scent. The main medicinal uses of hops are as a sedative, and for restlessness, anxiety and excitability.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on hops made available through the generosity of Gaia Trading’s adoption.
