HEMPCO FOOD AND FIBER INC. Symbol: TSX.V – HEMP
VANCOUVER, March 20, 2017 /CNW/ - Hempco Food and Fiber Inc. (TSXV: HEMP) ("Hempco®") is pleased to announce its launch of a new addition to its PLANETHEMP Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) product line in the UK: "CBD & Hemp Seed Oil" Nutraceutical – a functional food targeted at those with health in mind. The product launch was delayed several months awaiting the new UK CBD standards adoptions. Since completed, the product is now packaged and being distributed into UK healthy foods and products stores and online shopping channels market place.
"Hempco is committed to "whole crop utilization" and providing the highest quality hemp seed foods possible, adding a CBD functional food to its product offering and marketing in its key target market where its legal is an important statement of our commitment to innovation and pioneering life improving products," says CEO Charles Holmes. "Even though there is still much confusion regarding the difference between medical marijuana and hemp CBD nutraceutical products, Hempco recognizes the benefits to consumers health and well being and importance to take initiative to step and lead with the finest products, educate and increase shareholder value. After careful due diligence it is discovered that Cannabinoids - CBD's may be one of the most important ingredients for optimal human health and well being. With Hempco launching PLANETHEMP in the UK, it was realized that this was the ideal market to launch a phytonutrient rich oil product with maintenance dose levels of CBD… no different than those found in mothers' milk and our own bodies' amazing endocanninioid system. This is not a discussion about illegal drugs and/or getting high from smoking "demonized" marijuana (hemp with concentrated levels of THC, only one of the 140 or more discovered CBD's in hemp), it's a conversation about education and access to nutraceutical functional foods and herbs to support the human bodies' own natural functions to heal itself. Fact is, many common everyday foods have active ingredients that when concentrated and isolated and consumed, may cause us harm. It seems it's even possible to get "high" from nutmeg!"

Are the Unique Phytocannabinoids Found in Cannabis Actually Essential Nutrients?
The answer may surprise you. March 8, 2017
The human body is an amazingly perfected evolutionary feat of nature. We have adapted and evolved over thousands of years into the most advanced creatures on Earth. Each cell in our body performs a specific task or supports the overall functionality of another part. Nutrients found in plants and other animals are vital to the functioning of these cells and without them, we cannot survive. A growing number of doctors and medical professionals believe that all disease in the human body is a direct result of a nutrient deficiency. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been proven to cause diseases, illnesses, and debilitating conditions. For example, if a human being does not get Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) for a long enough period of time, they will develop a dangerous skin condition known as scurvy – which left untreated can lead to death.
If this is what happens when we don't get Vitamin C, what must happen to our bodies if we do not nourish and feed the other cells? The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brains of mammals and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. This system of cells was only discovered in the past 30 years (1990), and doctors are not taught about these cells in medical school. Known as "the body's own cannabinoid system", the ECS… Read More
