Q: What is industrial hemp?

A: Industrial Hemp is a tall, leafy plant with a strong fibrous stalk.

Industrial Hemp plants contain less than 0.3% THC in their leaves and flowering parts.

Q: What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

A: Hemp and marijuana are both members of the cannabis plant species. However, similarly to the way in which there are different breeds of dogs within the canine species, there are also different varieties of cannabis.

Hemp is grown for industrial purposes including food, clothing, skin-care, and fuel.

Mettrum Originals’ hemp products often test with no detectable traces of THC and are guaranteed to contain less than 0.001% THC and thus will not cause any psychoactive effects nor will they trigger a false positive drug test.

Q: What are the nutritional benefits of including hemp in my diet?

A: The major nutritional benefits of hemp food products are derived from the high quality and highly digestible vegan protein, which includes all of the essential amino acids that humans need to live.

Hemp food products also contain the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 which the body cannot produce, so they must be consumed in the foods we eat.  The ratio of Omega 6: Omega 3 in hemp foods is 3:1, which is the widely recommended and optimum ratio to maintain a balanced diet of essential fatty acids.

Hemp foods also naturally contain an interesting array of important vitamins and minerals, making it easy to obtain your daily requirements when you add hemp foods to your diet.  Hemp seeds also provide a source of dietary insoluble fibre, a much needed addition to everyone’s diet.

A: Yes. Hemp contains numerous nutrients, including folic acid, making it a safe and delicious addition to an expectant mothers’ diet.

Q: Are hemp foods safe for children?

A: Yes. However, as with any other food, remember to consider body weight when determining serving sizes. As a general guideline, cut the recommended serving size shown on each package by 1/3 or ½ depending on the child’s age and size.

Q: Are hemp foods safe for animals?

A: Because Mettrum Originals is not an animal food manufacturer, we do recommend that you contact an animal care professional to request specific advice on this subject.

Q: Are Mettrum Originals products organic and non-GMO?

A: Hemp is the quintessential organic crop in that it naturally competes with almost any weed and is resilient to most pests, insects, and fungal spores.

As such, Mettrum Originals does not apply any herbicides or pesticides to our crops. We are proud to confidently state that our products are non-GMO and grown and produced using certified organic standards
