We are anticipating Explosive Growth in this sector and our potential revenue.
Hemp foods begin with hemp seeds, which contain a perfect balance of omega 3 and 6, iron, vitamin E and all of the essential amino acids.
The high value CBD content from the Hemp can produced and sold in a number of forms from oils, distillates and isolates.
To the untrained eye, hemp and marijuana can appear similar, however, Hemp is naturally high in Cannabidiol (CBD) and low in Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the reverse of marijuana. The U.S. Federal Agricultural Act of 2014 (aka the Farm Bill) defined “industrial hemp” and distinguished it legally from marijuana. A ‘0.3 percent THC or less’ qualification for hemp was enshrined in Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act and renewed when Congress approved the 2018 Farm Bill. The Farm any plant that tops 0.3 percent THC is considered marijuana and is currently Federally illegal to grow. THC induces psychoactive effects (gets the user “high”), while CBD does not contain any psychoactive properties. CBD has been steadily gaining notoriety for its effect on seizures, anxiety, migraine pain, anti-inflammation and even body temperature. Due to these studied benefits, as well as the CBD products are cropping up. The Hemp plant comes in a number of varieties and uses for the plant range from industrial to consumer textiles, paper and building materials to food and medicines.
Hemp seeds contain a perfect balance
of omega 3 and 6, iron, vitamin E and
all of the essential amino acids.
Hemp proteins are easier to digest than
animal proteins, and with a harvest cycle
that requires much less carbon concentration than livestock, it’s easier on the environment.
Hemp seeds contain one of the most
nutritionally complete food sources in the world. The seeds may be eaten whole, shelled, raw, toasted, plain or flavoured.
The seeds can also be pressed for oil,
which results in seed cake that can be
ground into flour and protein powder.
Hemp fibers make it comparable
to cotton and synthetic materials.
Hemp seeds are classified as a nut, having an outer sheath, a hard shell and an inner kernel. Hemp seeds generally contain 30–35% oil by weight, with some varieties containing up to 50% oil. Hempseeds contain anti-oxidants, protein, carotene, phytosterols and phospholipids as well as several minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulphur, potassium, iron, zinc and phosphorus. They are a source of complete protein and contain all 20 known amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids. Hemp seed oil is rich in nutrients and is typically comprised of approximately 25-35% fatty acids, 20-25% protein, 20-30% carbohydrates, and 10-15% fiber. The oil contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E (a natural anti-oxidant), all in an easily digestible form. The essential fatty acid (EFA) content, contains Linoleic Acid (LA) and Linolenic Acid (LNA) and is a great source of omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). These fatty acids comprise of the most desirable contents of the oil, especially due to the ratios in which they exist. The 3:1 ratio of LA to LNA is alleged to be optimal for nutrition and the additional presence of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in hemp seed oil ultimately makes its nutritional value superior to most comparable seed oils.
Scientists have identified over 100 different cannabinoids, but the two most well-known and well-researched are THC and CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, has become increasingly popular within the health & wellness and beauty industry. According to data compiled by Brightfield Group, the U.S. CBD market is expected to reach USD 22 Billion by 2022 CBD is being touted as a treatment for ailments ranging from anxiety to cancer and the world is becoming increasingly aware of CBD and its benefits. CBD products already come in a number of forms such as flower, oils, edibles and tinctures and the U.S. has already approved a CBD-based drug, Epidiolex, to be used to treat epilepsy among children. The demand for CBD continues to grow and new products like beverages and foods are rapidly emerging. CBD is the second most abundant compound in hemp, typically representing up to 40% of its extracts. The production of hemp oil involves extracting the fatty acids from the stalks of the cannabis plant. Within these fatty acids fat-soluble substances can be found, and as cannabinoids are fat-soluble, they come out of the plant, dissolved in the oil.
