Hemp is a naturally occurring product that has such a huge amount of potential (health and industrial) that it’s impossible to write them all in this small piece.
However we wanted to give you some information about this miracle fiber and what it can potentially do for you!
Hemps potential goes way beyond the products that benefit our health, with other uses such as paper, building materials, carpets, fabric and even plastic. A recent trend in 2015 saw small cafes and restaurants pop up, which make delicious food utilizing hemp seed oil and hemp seeds.
Many businesses are now promoting legislative change so that cultivation of industrial hemp in South Africa becomes a reality.
We at Life Retreat are certain that given the opportunity to grow this sustainable crop, the hemp industry could help provide solutions to many of the challenges that this country faces by way of sustainable housing, nutrition and job creation.
It is our belief that for positive changes to occur on a planetary scale it is necessary for environmental consciousness to be adopted by the masses. With this in mind we aim to move hemp out of the alternative culture and into the mainstream.
