Hampa: Nutrition - Inside and Out!
A nine thousand year old miracle plant, Hemp (cannabis sativa) is known for its numerous benefits. Grown in the Himalayas, it is pure and naturally endowed with medicinal and nutritive values. It grows on its own with very little water and without pesticides or fertilisers and supports an entire community of people who derive food, clothes, medicines, ropes and even bricks from the plant. It is one of the few plants that can be used from root to leaf. Hemp has its roots deep in Ayurveda; reflecting its value, it is called ‘Vijaya’, which means victory.
Natural holistic nutrition
Hemp is one of the best plant based proteins. It is the only plant seed to contain Edestin, a protein that gets easily absorbed by the human body and is rich in amino acids essential for human health. Hempseed oil has over 80% poly-unsaturated fats (PUFA), making it one of the best drivers of heart health. It is also an exceptionally rich source of the two essential fatty acids - Omega-3 and Omega-6.
Containing abundant amounts of vitamins and useful minerals like vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese and iron, Hemp is rich in dietary fibres that promote metabolism and gut health, with natural anti-oxidant and anti-septic properties.
It is also a natural pain reliever with anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp seed oil is known to be one of the best moisturizers in the world, as it gets easily absorbed by the skin. Not only does it contain highly nutritious fatty acids that are great for the skin and hair, it is also non-comedogenic and, therefore, does not clog the pores, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple.

Rajneesh and some friends often discussed the lack of a holistic wellness solution that helps keeping up with the demands of modern living. While nutrition is championed by several ‘superfood’ sources, each provided only a part solution for the overall well-being needs. The personal care and wellness spaces were even more scattered.
We did a lot of research and our long search for a holistic wellness solution led us to one of the oldest farmed crops- a magic of nature called Hemp. A plant that grows naturally in the Himalayas and has its roots in the age-old wisdom of Ayurveda.
If you are thinking “Really! Hemp? I thought it was used only for recreational purposes!” Trust us, you are not alone. That’s what we also thought like a majority of people, but when we dug deeper we discovered how mistaken we were!
Hemp has a heritage of more than 9000 years, passed on from generation to generation in the Himalayas. In the last 100 years or so, Hemp has been tinged with controversy, leading to the vast natural goodness being lost on us urbanites.
Not surprisingly, even those of us who are mindful of their choices about health and wellbeing, are quite unaware of the benefits of Hemp!
Hemp is one of the best sources of plant based proteins, a great source of essential fatty acids, rich in dietary fibers, vitamins and minerals, an anti- oxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, and one of the best moisturizers in the world. Phew! This doesn’t even cover all the goodness of this miracle.
Truly, Hemp puts Super in Superfoods!
