The hemp plant has been treasured by many societies for thousands of years.
Hemp is a crop that has been grown all around the world for centuries for many uses and reasons. From textiles to building materials, from food to fibre, from clothing to medicine, hemp is the most powerful and versatile crop known to humankind.
The Brothers Green chose hemp as their vehicle of change, their means of giving New Zealand farmers a sustainable, environmentally friendly crop to grow, as well as reducing the threat of inflammation to chronic disease in kiwi’s in the 21st century.
The hemp seed is a miracle product, used to create healthy food and supplements as well as skincare and protein. Full of a wondrous array of essential fatty acids, omega 3, gamma-linolenic acid, cannabinoids and terpenes as well as an impressive collection of micro nutrients and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc and more.
Hemp seeds, oil & protein powder are all high in healthy fats, low in carbohydrates, contain no sugar and are a great source of plant protein.
The perfect nutritional supplement to reduce inflammation and add protein to the New Zealand diet.
Omega 3’s have long been known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Found in food such as hemp and fish, supplementing omega 3 has been used for countless years for improving joint health, managing arthritis, improving brain function, increased immunity and healthy skin.
Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA)
GLA is an anti-inflammatory omega 6, studied for its effects on arthritis, swelling and general inflammation in the body. In combination with omega 3, in the perfect ratio for human absorption of 3:1, GLA is found in the hemp seed and all of The Brothers Green products.
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in not only cannabis plants but numerous other plants around the world. Most are non-psychoactive in nature, meaning the brain is not altered at all once consumed. Ones such as CBD, CBA & CBG, all found in hemp, have potent anti-inflammatory effects for humans.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants with many different properties with a range of benefits. Ones such as beta-caryophyllene are found in hemp and act like cannabinoids to tap into the human immune system and reduce inflammation also.
