Hemp - It's not quite what you think!
We’ve got lots of hemp products in Jefferies, and it’s not quite what you think!
We’re hemp fanatics at Jefferies! Before you get concerned though, hemp is different to Marijuana. Hemp us actually a super seed, which dates back to 8,000+ BC. It contains essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals which are useful for human function, and has a well-researched nutritional value, considered as one of China’s 5 acient grains. It’s also GMO free, vegan approved, soy, dairy, gluten and sugar free.
As we just touched on, there is almost no relation to what people typically associate with hemp - Marijuana. Hemp in it’s seed form contains practically no THC, which is what gives you the “high” that Marijuana does. Hemp also has many other uses - you may have heard of it’s use in paper, plastic, materials and clothing! It is super nutritious, and an all-round beneficial seed.
Here are a couple of the hemp products we have here at Jefferies:
Hemple - Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil
