Welcome to Kanahemp
Here at KanaHemp we have a vision to bring the highest quality hemp based products to market from across the world in to one easy to use hemp shop. We take big pride in providing some of the cleanest most organic products found around the world when it comes to hemp! Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. It has been used for paper, textiles, and cordage for thousands of years. Hemp seeds are known to be one of the most nutritious seeds on the planet! Along with magnesium, potassium, dietary fibre and almost every vitamin and mineral that the body needs, Hemp seeds contain high amounts of essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Hemp seeds are very high in protein, containing 25% protein content. They do not contain phytic acid, which means every last bit of goodness that these tiny seeds have to offer can be absorbed and utilized by the body!
What are the health benefits of hemp?
Of all the health benefits of the hemp plant, one property of the plant stands out from the rest. A substance called cannabidiol (CBD) has shown nutritional potential for years, yet the taboo around cannabis has kept CBDs off the radar. CBD is a prominent naturally occurring cannabinoid compound found in cannabis (both hemp and marijuana) that has significant medical benefits. CBDs will not make people feel “stoned”; in fact it can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. After THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is by far the most studied natural cannabinoid. According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
It’s an environmentalist’s best friend
Ever wonder where the nickname “weed” comes from? The hemp plant grows like one, obviating the need for most pesticides (it is naturally resistant to most pests), herbicides, fungicides and thriving on less water than most crops. Because of its resiliency, it has also been flagged as a natural way to clean up soil pollution. Using a process called phyto-remediation, hemp was used at Chernobyl to harmlessly extract toxins and pollutants from the soil and groundwater. Hemp actually absorbs CO2 while it grows through natural photosynthesis, making it carbon-negative from the get-go.
