Now in its third year, Hemp History Week is the largest national grassroots marketing and public education effort to renew strong support for hemp farming in the U.S. and raise awareness about the benefits of hemp products. The 3rd Annual campaign includes grassroots events across the country, nationwide retail promotions, a day of action, and a national restaurant program.
A little about Hemp Seeds:
Hemp seeds are a nearly perfect food source. High in digestible protein, healthy Omega essential fatty acids (EFAs) and naturally occurring minerals, hemp seeds are also free of gluten and have no known allergens. The hemp sees used in products are not the same strains of hemp as marijuana. This is a common mistake made when most think about hemp and the use of hemp seeds. Foods made from hemp seeds have become staples in co-ops and grocery stores across the country. The light, nutty flavor of hemp seeds make them a perfect raw ingredient for delicious breads, cereals, waffles, nut butters, protein powders, nutritional oils, non-dairy milk and even ice cream. Hemp seeds have a perfectly balanced 1:3 ratio of naturally occurring Omega-3 and Omega-6 EFAs for our body. And unlike other seeds and nutritional oils, such as flax and fish oil, hemp seeds also contain Super Omega-3 Stearidonic Acid (SDA) and Super Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). We will be running some awesome specials on a bunch of hemp products until June 8th!
