About Hemp

MORE EXCITING THAN YOU THINK...

Our most valuable crop; hemp provides food, fibre, medicine, and pleasure.

 

Hemp was made illegal in the 20th century.

 

In the 21st Century, it is being privatised.

Industrial Hemp is Cannabis Sativa, and humans have used it since before recorded history.

'Sativa' is an ancient name, only given to beneficial crops. It means 'cultivated'.

 

Oats, Peas, Lettuce, Carrots, Parsnips, Alfalfa,  Saffron and Cannabis are all 'Sativa'. 

But only Cannabis is a 'triple crop'.

 

Only Hemp provides food, fibre, and medicine.

As a food vegetable, (and hemp extracts too), Hemp is a 'nutra-ceutical', a food with big health benefits.

 

Unlike medicines, Hemp contains many active, safe, and beneficial compounds. Hemp is a 'poly-pharmaceutical' food plant.

 

 This means that, if a legal food, and understood, Hemp could reduce the number of sick people AND compete with many 'big pharma' products.

Thats because, all animals have an 'endocannabinoid system', that regulates and protects our health with fatty molecules called 'cannabinoids'. https://www.phytecs.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/IntroductionECS.pdf

 

This physiological system uses Omega 3/6 fatty acids to make cannabinoids which regulate and protect our health. Hemp is uniquely rich in both.

Why cant you grow Hemp?

Why is our oldest crop a prohibited food?

What cant licensed farmers sell us their Hemp?

Why does government tell us that Hemp is 'not medical', but now permits farmers to sell their hemp to 'medical cannabis' companies?

Who benefits?

We think you, and your children should benefit.
