What does it do for my body?

Amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, are compounds that play many critical roles in your body.

They're needed for vital processes like the building of proteins and synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters.

Nutrients and vitamins are critical for brain function and help your body grown and work the way that it should.


What Are Essential Amino Acids?


Amino acids are organic compounds composed of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen.

Your body needs 20 different amino acids to grow and function properly but only nine amino acids are classified as essential. These are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tyyptophan, and valine. Hemp seed has got them all.

When you eat hemp foods, it’s broken down into amino acids, which are then used to help your body with various processes such as building muscle and regulating immune function

GLA has been proven to help with inflammation, skin and hair health, balancing hormones, cholesterol and general heart health.


How are hemp seeds grown?

Farmers plant a non-GMO certified seed in the spring and harvest in the fall using traditional farming equipment to plant, harvest, de-hull and process. The cultivar is typically specific for seed production but often the stalk can also be used for fiber content.

Hemp is a versatile crop and grows very well after it has germinated and established a root ball. Hemp cultivars for foods grow to about five feet and quickly established a broad leaf canopy to suppress surrounding weed growth. This provides a natural weed cover and allows hemp to be grown without the use herbicides or pesticides.
