Hemp has been an integral part of life for many cultures throughout the world for thousands of years. Seed husk remains were discovered in Neolithic burial sites, indicating the significance of this plant in ancient times. The hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) is one of the earliest known cultivated crops, and it has many uses including textiles, fiber, wood, plastic and fuel alternatives. In the early 1940’s, Henry Ford built a car that was made completely of hemp plastic and fueled by hemp oil. The constitution of the United States was drafted on hemp paper and 'founding fathers' of the United States, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, were hemp farmers!

Nature’s Perfect Protein
The essential amino acids in hemp are at levels that contribute significantly to the human body’s requirements. In particular, hemp is a great source of the sulphur-containing amino acids methionine and cysteine, both of which are necessary for the production of enzymes. Hemp also contains an abundance of branched chain amino acids that play a key role in the growth and repair of lean body mass, which is of special interest to athletes.
Navitas Naturals Hemp Powder is easy to digest, which is important when comparing it to other protein powders on the market. Our hemp powder is also free of the enzyme inhibitors found in soy, other legumes and grains that can prevent protein absorption. Also, our hemp powder does not contain gluten or added sugars.
Hemp is an immensely sustainable, fast-growing, drought-resistant and hardy crop, making it a healthy alternative to genetically modified products that use excessive resources. Hemp absorbs large quantities of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and actually improves soil structure over time. Hemp is an ancient plant that is proving to be an efficient natural resource for the future.

Hemp Powder: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes up the Hemp Powder?
A: The powder is made from defatted crushed hemp seeds. The hemp seeds oil content is removed to allow for a powder to form. There are no additives whatsoever in Navitas Naturals Hemp Powder.
Q: Why is Hemp Powder considered a good source of protein?
A: Not only is Hemp Powder a dense source of protein by weight, it is also a wonderful vegetarian source of “complete” protein. Oftentimes non-animal protein sources do not contain all 9 essential amino acids that form a complete protein. Hemp comes packed naturally with all essential amino acids and is utilized and digested easily by the body.
Q: Does your Hemp Powder contain THC?
A: Our organic, premium hemp comes from one of the largest suppliers in Canada. Both the Canadian and US governments have strict regulations on THC levels in industrial and food grade hemp. Our hemp is regularly tested and the labs consistently come up with “non-detectable” amounts of THC, which means the levels are virtually nonexistent and less than 1 part per billion. Navitas Naturals Hemp does not contain THC, does not make you high, and will not trigger a positive result in drug testing. For more information about THC and Hemp Powder, visit our blog.
Q: Is your Hemp Powder and/or Seeds processed with hexane?
A: The minimal processing that our hemp undergoes is 100% natural and does not involve the use of any chemicals, this includes both the milling of Hemp Protein Powder and shelling of our raw Hemp Seeds.
Q: Why does the powder have more protein and fewer calories from fat?
A: The powder is made by cold pressing hemp seeds. We press the oil out of the seeds to leave you with a protein dense and easily digested powder that contains less fat than the seeds.
