Organic Hemp has been with us, since a time immemorial. Organic Hemp has helped Mother Earth undergo Sustainable Development in a very unique and beneficial manner.
Yet we often consider it as a curse rather than a boon. Our society accepts Hemp as something which can’t do any good, but is it so?
Let’s take a look at some of the stereotypical FAQs on Organic Hemp and its Plethora of varieties.
Q1. What is Hemp?
Answer: Hemp, a Cannabis Sativa strain, is a marvelously varied plant that has been used for a wide range of purposes throughout human history.
Although it is mostly cultivated or produced for its stalk fibre or seeds for food, the leaves and roots also have several therapeutic properties.
To be classified as hemp, cannabis cultivars must contain less than 0.3% THC. The hemp plant has a deep taproot that allows it to flourish in dry environments.
Q 2. What are the parts of the Hemp Plant that are edible?
Answer: Hemp’s versatility in human consumption applications is astounding. People have used the plant for medicinal, nutritional, cosmetic, construction, and clothing purposes, to mention a few.
Currently, the seeds are the only portion of the plant that may be used as a food product in the United Kingdom. We are unable to use any other component of the crop in our nutritious goods due to licensing and restrictions.
Q 3. What are the climatic conditions to grow Organic Hemp?
Answer: Our hemp is farmed entirely in the Himalayan Foothills, India. The Organic Hemp fabrics are hand-woven by the native women there, received special attention from us.
The temperature and soil types are suitable for hemp, and the addition of a new rotating crop gives a welcome source of revenue and soil revitalization to local family farmers in a drought-prone area.
Q 4. Are all Hemp Products organic?
Answer: All of our goods are either spray-free Himalayan grown and processed or organically grown and processed in the Himalayan Foothills.
Organic hemp is used in our hemp protein powder, Hemp Clothing, Hemp Beanies, Hemp Towels, and all our remainder of products. Stay assured that only 100% organic Himalayan Hemp is used in all our products. You’ll be getting the feel of using something that’s derived straight from nature.
Q 5. Is Our Packaging Compostable?
Answer: Our packaging is a combination of recyclable and biodegradable materials.
Our Hemp Seed Oil is available in glass recyclable bottles of 50ml and 100ml. All other items are packaged in home compostable pouches.
Q 6. What does Organic Hemp taste like?
Answer: Hemp seeds have been characterized as having a nutty, buttery flavor and texture that is ideal for sprinkling on oatmeal, oats, salads, and virtually any meal!
Hemp Protein has an earthy, nutty flavor that pairs well with smoothies.
Hemp Seed Oil offers a nutty, smooth, mild flavor profile that is ideal for salad dressing.
Q 7. What’s the recommended intake of Hemp Seed Oil?
Answer: 1 tablespoon of Nutritional Hemp Seed Oil per day is our daily recommendation. This provides your daily dose of Omega 3 as well as a variety of other beneficial micronutrients. There is no such thing as too much hemp!
Q 8. What is the role of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids? How much of it is present in our products?
Answer: Omega 3 fatty acids are a form of necessary fat that the human body cannot produce on its own. We must obtain them from the meals we consume. Omega 3 offers several health advantages.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to reduce the risk of heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other chronic disorders. Omega-3 fatty acids restrict and decrease inflammation.
Omega 6 is not always terrible for you. The key to a healthy diet, like any other, is balance. Many of us consume far too much Omega 6 and far too little Omega 3. Inflammation results from this imbalance.
The difficulty is to get the 3:6 ratio right. Consume extra Omega-3-rich foods to achieve this. Hemp seeds have an excellent Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio of 3:1.
Q 9. Are Hemp Oil and CBD Oil the same?
Answer: No, our Nutritional Hemp Seed Oil is not the same as CBD Oil since it is prepared by cold pressing the complete hemp seed.
The hemp plant’s leaves and flowers are used to produce CBD oil, which has great medical properties that hemp seeds do not have.
Q 10. Does Our Hemp Oil contain THC?
Answer: THC is not present in our Hemp Seed Oil. Our farmers have their crops tested for this crucial element by laboratories at the time of harvest, and all must return a test result of less than 0.3 percent.
This season, all of our farms returned less than 0.05 percent, which is considerably below the minimal level.
Q 11. What’s the striking contrast between Hemp and Marijuana?
Answer: Despite being members of the same plant family, hemp and marijuana are significantly different. Both plants are cannabis, but their chemical characteristics, morphology, and human use are vastly different.
One significant distinction is that hemp has little to no THC, whereas marijuana plants are bred to have a high THC content.
Q 12. How tough is it to harvest Organic Hemp?
Answer: Hemp is similar to many other crops that our New Zealand farmers plant and harvest for our consumption.
Harvesting involves particular equipment, contractors with expertise and experience, and time. Moisture levels are important in determining the best time to harvest for producers.
Our farmers will progressively come to the point where the harvest is no more difficult than any other plant as they practice, experiment, and learn as they do with every other new crop in their farming systems.
