100% Canadian Hemp Products

We provide health through products that neither harm the body nor the environment.

 

The industrial hemp plant provides nutritious seeds, Omega-rich oils, and a high supply of fibre through flour and protein powder.

 

While hemp may be considered a ‘superfood’, we focus on its sustainability. Its low-pesticide needs, soil-replenishing growth, and adaptability to nearly any climate make it a cost-effective contribution to the environment.

 

Industrial hemp is also used for making textiles and clothing, while the oil can be used to create plastics and lubricants. Homes are built with hempcrete, hemp-resin studs, and hemp-based boarding.

 

Hemp’s close cousin, cannabis or medical marijuana, has been effective in the treatment and recovery for  many diseases and disabilities.

 

With over 50,000 uses, we see hemp as a boon to the economy, environment and lifestyle.

Is Hemp A Superfood?

Hemp’s greatest nutritional gift is its perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids (3:1).

 

Omega-3s have been effective for:

 

* regulation blood sugar levels and fat burning.

* making the nerve cell membrane by regulating the calcium, sodium and potassium ions    controlling the electrical activity.

* activating dopamine and serotonin receptors, affecting mood, sleep, appetite and libido.

 

Omega-3s raise the HDL, while lowering both LDL and VLDL levels in the blood, dilating the blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. It reduces clotting and inflammation, and lowers triglycerides. It also reduces lipoprotein, which promotes atherosclerosis and blood clots.

 

Essential fatty acids are vital for the function and development of the brain and nervous system, assisting in the production of healthy cell membranes. Omega-3s have been effective against arthritis, depression, postnatal depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

 

The hemp seed, or nut, is comprised of 25-31% protein. Of that, 65% is globulin edestin, resembling the globulin found in blood plasma. This allows easy digestion for the body to absorb and digest. Globulin helps maintain the immune system, as it helps manufacture antibodies against invasive agents.

 

The hemp seed contains high levels of vitamins A, C, E, and B-carotene. It is rich in the minerals phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, and zinc. It is also the only plant to contain vitamin D, which assists in calcium absorption.

Hemp’s deep-root system aerates the soil, loosening the soil while preserving its moisture and soil bacteria. It also absorbs heavy metal contamination from the soil.

 

For oil, 48 gallons of oil are squeezed from an acre and leaves 715 pounds of seed cake plus stalk for further processing.

 

For ethanol, about 500 gallons are produced per acre, which at 60 cents a gallon equates to $300 per acre.

 

For paper products, it produces four times more fibre per acre than trees. It grows from 6 to 16 feet tall in 110 days, producing 3 to 8 tons dry stalk per acre. This is highly preferable to the 20-100 years of growth cut from our forests.


Organic hempseeds

Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is grown for the fiber and seeds.  The fiber and seeds are incredible valuable and is why hemp is often called a “cash crop”.  Hemp is a very hearty plant and grows very quickly in very diverse soil conditions.  Cultivation of hemp for industrial purposes has been done by many civilizations for over 12,000 years.   Industrial hemp was the desired fiber used to manufacture rope, canvas, paper, and clothing until alternative textiles and synthetics for these purposes were discovered.  Although China has been the largest hemp producer over the years, other countries such as Australia and Canada are catching up.  It has been illegal for anyone to grow hemp in the United States as hemp is illegal under the marijuana prohibition act but Colorado has changed the laws and paved the way for industrial hemp production again in the United States(see hemp history). Now hemp oils, hemp plastics, hemp building materials and many hemp fiber products can be seen and purchased on the market. Hemp is truly an amazing plant with the potential to help “green up” many industries.

Traditionally, hemp fiber has been a very coarse fiber when raw, which made it well suited to rope but less than ideal for clothing designed to be worn against delicate human skin. Advances in breeding of the plants and treatment/processing of the fibers have resulted in a much finer, softer hemp fiber, which is ideal for weaving into hemp clothing, fabrics and rope. Watch the video on Hemp for victory to learn more about the importance of hemp during war times.

The “re-“growth of industrial hemp in the United States is heavily regulated, although the neighbouring nation of Canada successfully grows hemp commercially.  Since becoming legal to grow again in Canada, the crop has taken off and has become a booming multi-million dollar export.  Hemp building materials are another growing segment of the hemp industry.  Canada is now a leader in the global hemp food/health marketplace.  Canadian hemp products can be found in many hemp markets now in the United States and the world over.

In addition to providing useful fibers, hemp seed also has high nutritional value. and the plant can be used to make biodegradable plastics, some fuels, and a variety of other things. Hemp foods including but not limited to hemp energy bars, hemp salad dressing,hemp milk, hemp protein shakes, hemp oil gel caps and hemp protein powder are among some of the health products being produced today.

What Wikipedia Says About Hemp

Hemp

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about industrial and foodstuff products that are derived from hemp cultivars of the Cannabis plant. For the usage of Cannabis as a drug, see Cannabis (drug). For other uses, see Hemp (disambiguation).

Hemp (from Old English hænep) is a commonly used term for high-growing varieties of the Cannabis plant and its products, which include fiber, oil, and seed. Hemp is refined into products such as hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper, and fuel.

Other variants of the herb Cannabis sativa are widely used as a drug, commonly known as marijuana. These variants are typically low-growing and have higher content of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The legality of Cannabis varies widely from country to country, and from state to state in the United States. In many countries regulatory limits for concentrations of psychoactive drug compounds, particularly THC, in hemp require the use of strains of the plant which are bred for low content.[1]
