Why Hemp?


Hemp Protein

spoonHemp is a complete source of nutrition containing 33% protein – the most digestible protein of any plant. Hemp contains all 20 known essential amino acids (“EAAs”), including the ten that our bodies cannot produce and must must be supplied in our daily food. Amino acids are necessary for building and repairing muscle tissue and are vital to the maintenance of a healthy immune system.

Hemp is primarily known for its CBDs. One of at least 85 cannabinoids found in hemp. It is a major constituent of the plant, and represents up to 40% in its extracts.Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms of a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including: rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, PTSD, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anti-cancer potential is currently being explored at several academic research centers in the U.S. and other countries.

Hemp also contains over 80% essential fatty acids (“EFAs”), the most compared to all other oil seeds.

EFAs are considered ‘the good fats’ because they cannot be produced by the body and must be consumed by the diet. EFAs help you burn excess fat, restore health to the cardiovascular system, relieve arthritis pain and inflammation, and strengthen the immune system.

Hemp has a long been recognized by the health and nutrition industry as a super food, cited in many publications as a balanced source of all ingredients required to achieve health and wellness.

omega-circleHemp is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 EFAs, which are essential to the proper development and functioning of the brain, reproduction system, metabolism, and also help maintain the health of the skin, hair and energy production. Studies have shown that it is important to consume Omega 6 and Omega 3 in the proper balanced ratio. Hemp is the only edible oil that naturally contains the perfect ratio of 3:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 EFAs, as recommended by the World Health Organization (“WHO”).

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are known by another name: omegas. There are three types of omega fatty acids: omega-3, omega-6, omega-9. Omega-3 and the omega-6 fatty acids are two types of polyunsaturated fat. They are considered essential fatty acids because the body cannot manufacture them. Omega-9 fatty acids are from a family of mono-saturated fats that also are beneficial when obtained in food.

Is there any possibility to test positive on a drug test after using hemp?
Answer: There are so many parameters for tests that it is impossible to give an outright yes or no. If you are referring to THC, the hemp protein used in both products has been tested and contains only 4 parts per million of THC, or 4mcg/gram of hemp. By comparison, a typical marijuana “joint” contains 10-30% THC by weight.

As a point of comparison, you would need to ingest 25,000 grams of our high quality and hemp protein powder  (892 sachets of our Pro369 Hemp protein shake) to get the same amount of THC as in 1 gram of marijuana, in the same time frame.
