If you haven’t delved into the wonderful world of hemp products, you’re missing out! From foods to fabrics to skin care, hemp is the current wunderkind of the natural health world. Hemp seeds are packed full of essential fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6, so are a great addition to your diet. These essential fatty acids also help to keep skin supple and nourished so hemp seed oil is used in cosmetics too. The oil doesn't clog pores and can help regulate sebum production, making it great for acne-prone skin. As a natural humectant, it draws moisture into the skin to retain.
We use hemp seed oil in a number of our products and are proud to source it from an inspiring Canadian company. Manitoba Harvest is the world’s largest manufacturer to grow, make, and sell their own line of hemp food products. Their passion for hemp foods is rooted in their Founder Mike Fata’s personal transformation. Weighing over 300 pounds, Mike decided it was time for a change, overhauled his diet, focusing on protein, good fats, and fibre – all nutrients found in hemp foods. That’s when they decided they needed to share the amazing benefits of hemp with the world.
Grown in the fields of our neighbours to the east, Hemp Seed Oil from Manitoba Harvest is an outstanding Canadian company. For us, that means we get the absolute freshest hemp seed oil from a producer we can be confident in.
Manitoba Harvest takes a wonderful seed to shelf approach, controlling everything from what hemp seed gets planted, to how products are manufactured, packaged, and distributed. They work directly with Canadian farmers and influence how their non-GMO hemp seeds are cultivated.
COOL FACT: They track each hemp seed as it comes into their facility and can trace every hemp product back to the Canadian field it was grown on!
As a Certified B Corporation, every decision, action and interaction Manitoba Harvest makes is influenced by how it will impact the community and environment around them.
