Can You Believe It’s Illegal to Grow This Superfood in the U.S.?

Considering that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson Grew It…

Hemp SeedsThe fact that growing hemp is illegal in the U.S. is absurd. Federal policy currently equates hemp, a sustainable non-drug crop, with marijuana. Never mind that the oil, seed and fiber varieties of the hemp plant are used in everyday products currently bought and sold in the U.S., including skin care, clothes, paper, building materials, biofuels, and of course, superfoods. If we’re using the products in the U.S., why not grow the plant here? Some states are fighting for that right; California recently signed a bill (SB 566) to allow farmers to grow hemp, but it still has to pass on the federal level. It’s a step in the right direction, considering what this incredible plant can do. 

 
The Truth Revealed about Hemp

Hemp is doing incredible things for people’s health. Here’s one amazing story of how consuming hemp oil changed one of our customer’s lives…
 
“2 years ago, I started using some hemp seed oil and it has put my fibromyalgia and arthritis at bay for the last 2 years! If any of you know what fibromyalgia is, you know that it can be very painful. My arthritis in my left knee was so bad, I couldn’t drive a car for more than 50 miles without stopping and getting out of the car to walk awhile. Neither handicap has returned. My doctor told me that everything I had was incurable. If everyone in the world knew about this, there would be a lot less hospital visits and knee surgeries.” – Bruce

 


 
The Superfood Breakdown
The Oil:
Nutiva Hemp OilWhy did hemp oil have such a drastic effect on Bruce’s health? It’s well known that healthy fats help to lubricate joints. Additionally, hemp oil contains an exceedingly rare, long-chain omega-6 fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which has been proven to have anti-inflammatory benefits.1 This could explain Bruce’s amazing turnaround.
 
Hemp is one of very few plants which contains a high quantity of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids. It normally contains omega-6 and omega-3 in a ratio of 3:1. Nutiva has devoted all their efforts to careful processing of this raw, organic, non-GMO, kosher hemp oil, resulting in higher levels omega-3 fatty acids. The Standard American Diet (SAD) contains an extremely high proportion of omega-6 fatty acids compared to omega-3, almost 20:1! Nutiva Hemp Oil can help correct this imbalance, one spoonful at a time.

 
The Seed:

Nutiva Hemp SeedDid you know that hemp seeds contain 33% protein, meaning that per serving, hemp has more protein than meat? Hemp seeds also boast 9% omega-3 essential fatty acids which may contribute to healthy brain function and must be derived from food. Symptoms of omega-3 deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, mood swings, and depression, to name a few.2
