Hemp seeds- Hemp is naturally high in fibre, which helps to maintain a healthy colon, lower your cholesterol, and assists in  reducing the risk of developing heart disease. The fibre content in the seed reduces hunger by giving you a feeling of fullness that will help  dieting and leads to healthier eating patterns.


  • Hemp is the most environmentally sustainable crop on the Planet. 
  • Hemp does not need any herbicides and pesticides to grow, it is 100% Natural.  
  • Hemp is a complete source of protein.  It is rich in Omega 3, with an ideal ratio of Omega 3 to 6, Hemp   is the only source of vegetable protein containing all 10 Essential Amino Acids
  • Although the Hemp crop is in the same family as the Cannabis plant, it contains no THC (the psychoactive substance in Cannabis) – so it is completely safe to eat.


 Some of the foods available from Good Hemp are Hemp oil, Hemp milk, Hemp seed and Hemp protein.


GOOD OIL – A nutty, cold-pressed Hemp seed oil that is great for cooking and garnishing, containing half the saturated fat found in olive oil.

  15. Oh, so many things. Great salad dressing or roast veg marinade is hemp oil, soy sauce, ginger, smoked garlic and a generous handful of fresh chopped coriander or toasted hemp seed mixed through salad and I think hemp milk in a cheesy pasta sauce may give it a lovely flavour (haven't tried this but I think I may!).
