The demand for hemp products is rapidly rising as consumers seek out cleaner, healthier, plant-based foods. The hunger for soy-free, dairy-free and animal-free proteins is at its highest in history and growing rapidly. Hemp provides seeds, protein powders, oils, dairy and meat alternatives, and adds healthier options to most grocery categories. It offers the ideal 1-3 ratio of omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, it’s rich in fiber, packed with vitamins and minerals, and it tastes great. Hailed as a “perfect food,” hemp strongly appeals to a broad and growing consumer base looking for nutritious, natural “superfoods” that promise greater health, vitality, clarity and energy.
Now that the profound health benefits of the active ingredients like CBD, CBG, CBN, THC, and many other terpenes and plant sterol phytonutrients are being recognized and legally accessible around the world, medicinal marijuana has attracted keen interest globally and bridging the long time gap between hemp and marijuana as a negative drug – to the foremost natural nutraceutical on earth.
