Hempseeds have been cultivated for over 12,000 years by many civilizations for its beneficial nutrients. In the 1990s, during mass starvation in Africa, charitable organizations such as the Red Cross used hempseeds to cook porridge for nourishment. Hempseeds are a good source of omega-3, omega-6, protein and fiber. Bioriginal offers roasted hempseeds, hulled hempseeds, hempseed protein powder and hempseed oil.

Hempseeds are sown in spring, 4 to 6 centimeters below the soil. Hemp plants require soil that’s well drained to grow into tall, slender plants with long fibers. They take 3 to 4 months to mature and are harvested before the crop starts flowering to obtain hempseeds.
