Hemp: The Miracle Plant
For more than ten thousand years, humans have cultivated hemp for its nutritional, medicinal, and industrial properties. Every part of the plant offers huge value:
- Flower: powerful medicinal and spiritual properties
- Seed: full of protein, amino acids, and the essential fatty acids required to sustain human life
- Stalk: source of one of the world’s strongest natural industrial fibres
- Roots & leaves: feed the soil with valuable nutrients – a farmer can grow multiple crops of hemp per season in the same field for 10 years in a row without seeing a decrease in soil nutrients
There’s no easier plant to grow… The hardy hemp plant thrives in almost any environment without the need for pesticides or herbicides.
It really is proof that Mother Nature loves us!

Meet the Canada Hemp Foods Team
Canada Hemp Foods was founded in 2006 by Robert Rae and Wally Venechuk and is located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada. Both men had added hemp to their diet on the recommendation of friends in order to clear up some frustrating chronic health conditions – and within weeks their ailments had cleared up, they were losing weight, and had more energy than they’d had in years! Robert and Wally became so convinced of the invaluable health benefits of this nutritious plant, they decided to start a business so they could share it with others. And Canada Hemp Foods was born!
Did You Know?
Up until the early 20th century, products made from industrial hemp were as common as plastic is today. But then aggressive anti-drug laws in the U.S. in the 1910s-1930s unfairly lumped THC-free hemp with its distant cousin, marijuana, in U.S. drug laws and everything went to pot. (Uh, pardon the pun… 😉
“Will I get high?”
Nope, not even a little bit. All our products are 100% THC free, which means they don’t contain the psychotropic element contained in marijuana, which is a different strain of cannabis sativa than that which is used to grow food-quality hempseeds.
You can eat all the hemp you want without any negative effects – and it won’t make you fail a urinalysis test.
“Is it organic?”
All our products are grown without pesticides and herbicides but only some are USDA certified organic. That’s because certification is expensive and adds to the total cost of the product, and we wanted to give our customers the option of lower priced products as well.
Choose the option that makes you happiest.
“Is hemp legal?”
Yes! There has never been a law in Canada or the U.S. that has banned products made from industrial hemp. However, due to current U.S. drug laws, it is currently very difficult to get a license to grow industrial hemp in the U.S. – even though the seed contains no detectable amounts of THC (0.3%).
Thank goodness it’s legal to grow this valuable plant in Canada!
