It’s Hemp History Week and Natierra® couldn’t be more excited! While popular culture may lead you to believe that hemp’s only purpose is as a recreational drug, that’s simply not true.
Hemp has been used in the United States since Europeans brought it over in the 1600’s and was even used as the parchment that The Declaration of Independence was written on!
It’s clear that hemp has gotten a bad reputation and deserves some positive press, so for Hemp History Week Natierra® is celebrating hemp’s role as a superfood.
Hemp seeds make an incredible superfood and have tons of great uses as a seed alone. Packed with nutrients, hemp seeds are an excellent source of fiber, iron, and magnesium while also providing Omega-3s and Omega-6s. Not only that, but hemp seeds function as a high-quality plant-based protein perfect for our vegan and vegetarian friends. Natierra® offers only the highest quality of hemp seeds that are organic, Non-GMO, and help to feed hungry children in Haiti through our partners at Convoy of Hope.
