Over the past 3 years we have been fortunate enough to organically grow our own crops of Cannabis Sativa, more commonly known as hemp, on the beautiful Dartington Estate in Devon.
Hemp contains less than 0.2% THC and is one of the most remarkable, eco-friendly plants to be found in the world, with thousands of uses. You can build your house with it; eat it and obtain remarkable nutrition; make your clothes from it; write your letters on it; sail your ships with it; sleep your animals on it; build your cars with it; power your batteries with it; clean up your soils with it, and much much more. A plant that does no harm, but gives so much.
Venus Hemp is a reflection of the cannabis plant’s extraordinary gifts to us nutritionally. We harvest our hemp seed superfood in the UK mainly for use as whole seed, oil and protein powder. The benefits of hemp seed are well documented and there is more information on our products page.
Our UK crop in Devon is also dedicated to development of the many practical, eco-friendly uses of hemp – hempcrete, hemp plaster, paper, soaps, high quality animal bedding and much more. In this project we are working to encourage more hemp to be grown in the UK – through our own planting, education, consultancy and helping others to also become established hemp growers.
All our products here at Venus Hemp are foods and food supplements – Let Food be Thy Medicine
