FAQs - Hemp

What’s so great about Hemp Seeds?
Want to know what all the fuss is about? Hemp seeds are one of the most clever and nutritious seeds in the world! Hemp seeds are fantastically low in carbs and rich in the good-for-you healthy fats. They also have a bucket-load of other benefits to boast about including being high protein, vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc...plus they starve off hunger and sugar cravings and help you stay full for longer. Wowsers. 

Are Hemp Seeds a good source of protein?
Hemp seeds get an A+ for being a complete protein, meaning they contain all of the essential amino acids needed by the body in perfect proportions and are a highly digestible form of protein. Especially handy for those enjoying a plant-based diet.  

Why are they called Hemp Energy Balls?
Because our balls cleverly feature Hemp Seeds AND Plant Protein, they are packed with protein. So instead of giving you a quick burst of energy, they are with you for the long haul, gradually releasing it throughout the day. 

Are there any other benefits?
Hemp seeds really are a fancy, multi-tasking little superfood. Not only do they kick sugar and hunger cravings to the curb but they help regenerate, plump and energize tired and dull looking skin due to their magical content of omega fatty acids, Vitamin E, zinc, calcium and magnesium. Plus, studies have shown hemp seeds can help reduce PMS symptoms such as irritability, breast tenderness, moodiness and fluid retention.

And the taste? A terrifically smooth and nutty taste!

Are Hemp and Marijuana the same thing?
No they aren’t! They are related, though, they’re different varieties of the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa). The marijuana variety contains high amounts of THC (the compound responsible for the “high”), whereas industrial or food-grade hemp comes from low-THC varieties of cannabis, with little or no THC content. Think of the amount of opium found in poppy seeds – same idea here. It’s impossible to use hemp seed as a drug.
