Hemp Info

Hemp has been harvested as a crop around the world for thousands of years. Due to a range of socio-political factors it's use in Western society was stifled during much of the 20th century however before this Hemp was a staple across much of the world. 

As awareness of the enormous benefits that it has over it's counter-parts and the multitude of industries that it can be applied to spreads we have no doubt that this will change. Hemp is a natural, environmentally responsible crop and by supporting the Hemp industry you are contributing towards improving the health of the planet for future generations.

Why is Hemp such a valuable crop - both financially and environmentally?

Whilst it is currently illegal to sell Hemp-based products for consumption in Australia elsewhere Hemp seeds and oils are utilised due to their astounding range of health benefits. Around 44% of hemp seed is comprised of edible oils, of which around 80% are Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's). Hemp seeds amino acid content is considered close to "complete" when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs and soy. Hemp protein contains all 21 known amino acids, including the 9 essential ones adult bodies cannot produce. One tablespoon of hemp oil per day contains enough linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid for a persons daily requirements for EFA's.

At Hemp-Life we truly believe that Hemp is an essential resource and it's continued increase in production is one of the few viable ways that we have of reversing unsustainable farming and forestry practices in a world in which demand is ever-expanding.
