There has long been a misunderstanding about marijuana and hemp. The plants look identical, so people assume they are the same. However, they are two different strains of the cannabis sativa plant, and they are in fact very different.

Hemp, which has been legal to grow in Canada since 1998, is a versatile, multi-purpose crop and its also sustainable. It can be grown without herbicides or pesticides, and it requires very little water to grow.

Hemp is an excellent plant-based protein source, and contains a balanced source of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Hemp foods are growing in popularity worldwide, as word spreads about its nutritional benefits.

Hemp is most commonly eaten in its raw hulled seed form, and can easily be added to your daily diet.
