It’s the 6th annual celebration of Hemp History Week and our US stores are closing out the week with sales on select products that contain hemp. Find out more below, but first a bit about what Hemp History Week is all about.

Time to Grow

The folks who organize Hemp History Week have joined with natural products pioneers, health and wellness advocates and interested citizens across the country to celebrate this year’s theme, “Sow the Seed”

What does that mean exactly? It means that they’re on a mission — educating the public, debunking myths and changing public policy — to support US farmers who want to join the thriving industrial hemp market.

Find out more in this video from their website:

Here are some interesting facts from the Hemp History Week website:

  • America is one of the only industrialized nations to federally prohibit industrial hemp farming. Hemp used in products sold in the US is imported from other countries, such as Canada.
  • Hemp fiber is one of the strongest natural fibers, and hemp is often used to strengthen plastics, paper, textiles and even building materials.
  • Hemp can be grown without any pesticides or agricultural chemicals and, if so, is a non-toxic source of fiber for clothing.
  • As a food, hemp is loaded with digestible protein, omega essential fatty acids (EFAs) and naturally occurring minerals.
  • Hemp is not the same as marijuana. It has little to no measurable THC and has no drug value.

Visit the Hemp History Week website to read more about the issues, find local events going on across the country and learn what you can do to take action to support hemp farming in the US. 

Celebrating with a Sale

Eat the Seeds

While the theme of this year’s Hemp History Week may be “Sow the Seed,” we also suggest you eat the seed, too! Hemp seeds have been eaten for thousands of years. They are hard to beat when it comes to good nutrition. They deliver a balance of both omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and they’ve got fiber and high quality protein, including all of the essential amino acids, plus iron, zinc and magnesium.
