WHY WE LOVE HEMP

 

It’s our hero – and we’re here to spread the good word. Not only is it one of the most sustainable, planet-friendly plants around – it’s also one of the most nutritious, with super seeds that are perfect powerhouses of goodness.

GOOD FATS

Positively overflowing with Omega-3, 6 and 9 – and you can’t get better fats than these. Say hello to healthy hearts, brain boosting and great skin, hair and immune systems.

PROTEIN POWER

Complete protein that comes entirely from plants. No whey! With all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential ones, it’s pretty good stuff.

VITAMINS & MINERALS

With Vitamin E for healthy skin and nails, iron for healthy blood and potassium to help your organs do their thing, hemp hits the nutritional jackpot.

FAB FIBRE

Packed with healthy fibre that’ll keep your digestion tip-top, and help stave off heart disease and diabetes.

FULLER FOR LONGER

All the fibre packed into hemp seeds makes it an atural appetite suppressant, meaning you feel fuller for longer and have less hunger cravings.

A C02-CAPTURING CHAMPION

Hemp plants breathe in four times more carbon dioxide than trees – think of them like little vacuum cleaners for the air.

NO WASTE

From the stalk to the seeds, the flowers and the leaves, every single part of a hemp plant can be put to good use. Talk about setting a good example!

NO PESTICIDE PRIDE

Hemp is such a naturally strong plant that it doesn’t need any pesticides or herbicides, which means cleaner air, land and water.

BIRDS & BEES

These tall, leafy plants make a splendid sanctuary for all sorts of wildlife, and their flowers are beloved by bees.

AN EPIC EARTH ENRICHER

Through its deep, strong roots, hemp replenishes the soil with far more nutrients than it uses up.

GOOD HEMP FAQs

Hemp, also known as “cannabis sativa” is a plant. Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years, most notably for ropes for naval vessels and for paper. The different parts of the plant have different uses – for example we use the seeds, however hemp is capable of producing hundreds of crucial resources including clothing, building materials, biofuel and more.

Hemp, otherwise known as “cannabis sativa” is a plant in the cannabis family, well known for it’s cousin marijuana. However, unlike marijuana, hemp contains no THC (the bit gets you high) and you’ll only find CBD in the leaves – none of either in the seeds which are the bits which we use!

We like to say like a cross between a pine nut and a sunflower seed – lightly nutty however obviously free from nuts!

At our farm in Devon! We don’t grow it there, but whole seed arrives at the farm, which all of our products are made from. We never buy in any type of hemp derivative.

We grow a small amount of the hemp seed we use on our farm in Devon, with the majority coming from our trusted collaboratives in France, the rest of the EU and Canada. The reason for this is because although we would ideally like to reduce the distance our seeds have to travel and support British farmers, not a lot of hemp is actually grown in the UK yet (but we are working on that!).

If we could we would, however there are very limited materials food and drink can be packaged in, and hemp is not yet an option! When it is, we’ll be the first one signed up, until then we are continuing to search for more sustainable packaging options.

Yes! We don’t buy in any hemp seed derivative, whole seeds arrive at our farm, which form the base (if not all!) of each product.

Omega 3 is a type of unsaturated fat which has been found to be good for the health of your heart, nails, hair and skin. Read more about it here.

Historically we have sourced our seeds from a range of producers some of whom have been organic and others, not. Because of this we have never been able to claim organic status. The majority of the seeds we are producing with at the moment are not certified organic, however we do ensure all of our hemp is sourced responsibly.

Our hemp seeds are sourced from carefully selected growers around the world, with the majority of them coming from Canada and France. When we first started Good Hemp back in 1998, we endeavoured to grow all of the hemp we’d need from our farm in Devon. Unfortunately, however, we found that the UK’s climate is not well-suited to large-scale hemp production. We’re committed to making hemp a global kitchen staple, which means we’ve had to look further afield to meet demand. We’re constantly reassessing our suppliers and looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

No, hemp protein does not contain CBD. Hemp protein comes from the hemp plant’s seeds, which are then ground up and made into a fine powder. CBD, on the other hand, is harvested from the flowers of the leaves of the hemp plant.

If you’re looking for something that does contain CBD, why not check out our great range of CBD oils?

No, hemp protein does not contain estrogen. As hemp foods have no phytoestrogen properties, hemp products don’t have an impact on estrogen levels one way or the other. However, hemp seeds do have a positive impact on hormonal health since they are chock-full of fibre, minerals, vitamins and essential amino and fatty acids.
