June 1-7 is Hemp History Week! Join us in celebrating hemp as more than just a healthy whole food source of plant-based protein, Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids and GLA. Did you know hemp is also a growing U.S. industry and an environmentally sustainable solution for potentially thousands of non-toxic products ranging from car parts and building materials to paper products, textiles, plastics and even ethanol? We can also sequester carbon from the atmosphere into the biosphere by cultivating hemp to heal our distressed farmlands.
Do you choose to boost your nutrition with hemp seeds because hemp has no known allergens? Maybe you just like the creamy, nutty flavor of hemp hearts, the smooth rich texture of hemp milk, or chewy hemp granola bars. We like to pamper ourselves with moisturizing hemp body care products; but did you know all the raw hemp for products stocked on retailer shelves must be imported from other countries?
Bring hemp back to America’s farms to support a healthy future for U.S. families, farmers, the economy and our planet. Sow the Seed with Hemp History Week this June 1-7. Learn more at www.HempHistoryWeek.com.
