Did you know it’s the 7th annual Hemp History Week (June 6-12)?

The Hemp History Week website is full of useful information, and talks about the sustainability of hemp, its complete nutrition, innovation, and economic potential.  “Hemp heals Earth. Its long taproot helps mitigate erosion and it has potential to remediate poor soil. As a rotation crop hemp can break disease cycles. It is one of the fastest growing plants on Earth making hemp very efficient at atmospheric carbon sequestration. Hemp’s high pollen content makes it a favorite of bees and other pollinator species, and since hemp requires no petroleum-based chemicals to grow, it does not contaminate the environment.”

Simply focusing on the hemp milk and hemp protein powder, this smoothie contains:
-All of the essential amino acids
-1,050mg of Omega 3
-12g protein
-An excellent source of Calcium, Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Phosphorus, Iron, and Riboflavin.
