What is hemp?
Every industrialized nation, except the USA, allows cultivation.
Hemp isn’t marijuana. It has no drug value. Hemp is one of the most nutritious and sustainably-grown plants in the world. And it makes great tasting products that are good for you and the planet. For these reasons and more, we want to bring hemp farming back to the US.
THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF USES FOR HEMP
When it comes to food, fabrics, rope, paper and building materials, industrial hemp has a longstanding history in the US. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both cultivated hemp on their farms. Even drafts of the Declaration of Independence were written on hemp paper. After the Controlled Substances Act was passed in 1970, hemp was classified with marijuana and was deemed illegal to grow in the US. Today, hemp is proving to have even greater value as a potential source of renewable energy, and as a raw material for biodiesel and ethanol.
LET’S START WITH THE BASICS
Industrial hemp is a plant, one of the hardiest plants around actually. Its dense foliage and planting density prevent weeds from growing without the use of herbicides. That makes it a favorite of farmers practicing sustainable farming methods. And without the use of pesticides too!
HEMP IS SUSTAINABLY GROWN
Living Harvest products are made from shelled hemp seeds grown sustainably on Canadian farms, without the use of pesticides. Hemp is easily cultivated and grown in a variety of areas, even those that are particularly dry, with poor soil and short growing seasons.
THE DEMAND FOR NON-DAIRY ALTERNATIVES IS ON THE RISE
Hemp food products are, now more than ever, facing a growing demand by US consumers. With food allergies on the rise, natural, unprocessed, raw and organic foods are widely becoming the new norm. As an agricultural crop, hemp is a plant-based superfood. It offers an exceptional alternative to dairy, nuts and soy. It’s vegan and gluten-free. Hemp is sustainable, non-GMO and grown without herbicides or pesticides, with no known allergens.
HEMP HAS NO DRUG VALUE
Hemp is nothing to be afraid of. It’s not marijuana and has no drug value. In fact, hemp contains 0.00% THC. The only "high" you’ll get is from the oh-so-delicious, rich and creamy taste. Consumption of Living Harvest Tempt or any hemp foods will never cause failure on any type of drug test. For more information visit TestPledge.com.
