4 Tasty & Healthy Hemp Protein Powder Recipes

4 Tasty & Healthy Hemp Protein Powder Recipes

Now that we understand the high potency of Hemp let’s look at a few easy ways to prepare some delicious ways to drink it and eat it… injoy

Protein powder. That’s the stuff that comes in big tubs and is used by muscle men in the gym, right? Wronggg. With the rise of vegan and vegetarian diets (which we at Good Hemp are all here for, by the way) protein is becoming ever more important. (Thinking about becoming vegan? Read some tips from our community) We all need enough of it to ensure our bodies have the power to perform healthy cell growth and repair.

And guess what? Hemp protein powder is one of the very best options out there. It’s easy to digest (unlike soya), it’s vegan (unlike whey) and is a complete source of protein, which means it contains all 20 amino acids (including the 9 that your body can’t produce itself). And you don’t have to be a gym bunny to make the most of it. You can down it in a shake before a HIIT class if that’s your style, but hemp protein is just as effective – and even more delicious – when baked into a batch of brownies.

1. Hemp Protein in Smoothies and Shakes 

Okay, so this is perhaps an obvious choice, but there’s a reason people the world over are mixing hemp protein powder into shakes. What easier – or tastier – way to make sure you’re getting a morning fix than mixing hemp protein powder in a smoothie along with fresh fruit and veg?  Try our super berry smoothie bowl or favorite hemp peanut butter smoothie – so simple and so delicious. 

2. Hemp Protein in Pancakes 

Get your protein in at breakfast. That way if anyone asks “how do you get protein if you don’t eat meat”, you can simply refer to your morning meal. (Take that, Grandma). We love these protein pancakes by Romy London.

3. Hemp Protein in Waffles

With hemp protein waffles, we’ve strayed away from breakfast and into the realm of brunch. When you’ve got a little extra time at the weekend, give Madeleine Shaw’s hemp protein powder recipe a whirl. She suggests serving her sweet potato and hemp waffles alongside soft-boiled eggs, avocado and miso mushrooms. If you’re vegan just ditch the eggs and it’s equally appetizing. 

4. Hemp Protein in Protein Bars

Don’t get caught hungry while on the go – make your very own protein bars with this hemp protein recipe and carry them around with you instead! We’ve see lots of different options for these, crammed with nuts and seeds and yummy things like peanut butter. We love these hemp and chocolate bars by The Protein Chef.

10 Benefits of Hemp Protein

10 Benefits of Hemp Protein

‘Sustainability begins with self. When we can sustain our self we can be an active part in sustaining the world around us.’ These 10 Benefits of Hemp is a perfect solution to educating your self of ‘why hemp’ and why you want to choose back into a balanced system. Learning how to care for self beyond synthetic solutions will changes our inner world forever, back to balance!!! Darlene Mea, CEO HempingtonPost

read on…

Most people are unaware that hemp is one of the best natural sources for plant-based protein.  The protein powder is made from grinding the seeds of the hemp plant and is considered to be a “complete” plant-based protein because it contains all 20 amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids.  In addition to essential fats and vitamins, it is also loaded with fiber and minerals that many of us lack with our current diet and protein supplements. 

Below are 10 of the amazing advantages to using hemp protein:

1) Builds Lean Muscle 

Muscle-building amino acids like branched chain amino acids, or BCAAs, are also an important part of what’s found in hemp protein.  These BCAAs both prevent the loss of muscle tissue, while increasing the rate of protein synthesis to build new muscle- perfect for recovery after exercise.  It’s no wonder hemp protein is considered to be a natural “superfood”.

2) Supports Immune System

Hemp protein is an incredibly easy way to supply the body with a nutritious boost.  It is a great source of edestin and albumin, 2 globular proteins that are needed for the body to make enzymes, antibodies, hormones, and fibrinogen.  On top of that, these globular proteins are part of what makes up the fluid in blood plasma.  All of these are very beneficial to maintaining a healthy immune system.

3) Boosts Energy Levels  

Many of us turn to caffeine on a daily basis to fight off feeling tired.  You may be surprised to know that hemp protein can actually offer the same boost.  It contains all essential fatty acids, which produce twice as much energy as carbohydrates when digested.  These proteins also take much longer to break down in the body, meaning that energy is released over a longer period of time, which leads to sustained energy throughout the day.

4) Improves Digestion & Metabolism

Contrary to popular belief, without proper protein intake, losing weight is very difficult.  Sustaining healthy protein levels will actually boost the metabolism and increase our ability to burn fat.  Another advantage over most protein powders, such as whey protein, is the lack of animal products like lactose.  This can cause, gas, bloating, and upset stomach for many people when ingested.  Most producers of animal-based protein will advertise “minimal” levels of lactose, though even a minute amount can cause adverse effects, even in people who are not lactose intolerant.  Due to the concentration of fiber, both soluble and insoluble, hemp protein will actually aid in digestion and help avoid many of these issues.

5) Decreases Cravings

The rich fiber contained in hemp protein not only supports digestion but leads to feeling more “full” for longer.  This is crucial for weight loss and to reduce those unhealthy food cravings.  Many people point to fiber as an important nutrient to fight chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer.

6) Strengthens Hair

Hemp protein has a high concentration of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids, all of which support healthy, thick hair growth.  These fatty acids also add sheen and luster to the hair, and some have suggested omega-3 fatty acids can reverse hair loss.

7) Reduces Inflammation 

To add to these benefits, hemp protein’s ideal ratio of fatty acids along with other nutrients has been shown to reduce inflammation.  According to one study published in the Journal of Arthritis and Rheumatism, ingesting the gamma linolenic acid, or GLA, protein in hemp alleviated arthritis symptoms by 20%.  By intervening with the body’s ability to produce pro-inflammatory molecules, GLA reduced chronic inflammation.

8) Fight Heart Disease 

Another benefit of hemp protein’s concentration of healthy fats, fiber, and other nutrients is a decreased risk of heart disease.  Arginine for example, one of the amino acids found in hemp protein, is used in the body to produce nitric oxide.  This is a gaseous substance that causes the blood vessels to expand, leading to decreased blood pressure.  Hemp protein is an incredible way to naturally combat heart disease- the number one cause of death around the world.

9) Cleanses the Colon 

To add to the list of amazing properties the high fiber content found in hemp protein has, one unknown to many is that insoluble and soluble fiber naturally cleanse the colon.  Some of the incredible benefits of this include protecting the gut, removing toxins from the body, reducing constipation and promoting consistent bowel movements. 

10) Regulates Cholesterol Levels

An added advantage of the essential fatty acids found in hemp protein is the reduction of unhealthy fats.  When you combine this with the healthy fats contained in hemp seeds that our body does not produce, it helps regulate our cholesterol levels.  Hemp protein can even decrease the buildup of plaque in our arteries.  With such an easy way to add these nutrients into your body, it’s a surprise we don’t all incorporate hemp protein into our diets.

Hemp Biofuel Set To Eliminate Our Dependence On Fossil Fuels

Hemp Biofuel Set To Eliminate Our Dependence On Fossil Fuels

Leave a Comment / Made with HEMPNews / By Hempearth Canada

With HEMP being legalized everywhere, hemp biofuel is set to be a key part of reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.

Fuel is everything. The world would not be the hyper-efficient economy it is today without something to power our cars, trucks, transports, planes, and jets.  Air pollution from processing fossil fuels harms the troposphere and indirectly depletes ozone from our atmosphere. The price for hyper-efficiency is evident, which is why alternative fuel sources have become so important. Today we focus on a fuel source that hits close to home. That alternative is hemp biofuel.

The cannabis plant is the gift that keeps on givin’. This magic plant gives us THC oilCBDhemp fibers and even fuel! Researchers have made hemp into two types of biofuel: biodiesel and ethanol.


Biodiesel is produced by the pressing of hemp seeds to extract their oils & fats. After the extraction, the product is then put through more steps to make it into a usable hemp biofuel for your car, truck, tractor, transport, boat and very soon thanks to HEMPEARTH Hemp Jet A Fuel who started testing bio fuels

Biodiesel when processed correctly can be put into any diesel-powered automobiles and more. It can be stored and transported like diesel, so there isn’t a need to create a new system for transportation. It even replaces the smell of traditional diesel with the smell of hemp.


Ethanol is traditionally made from wheat-based crops such as corn and barley. It’s traditionally used as an additive to gasoline, which gave way to our “flex-fuel” vehicles of today. Hemp can be made into ethanol by various forms of fermentation. Using hemp as the main source of ethanol, instead of food crops like wheat & corn has clear advantages. Not using food crops as a fuel source allows more efficiency in food production, and hemp can be grown in lower quality conditions unlike corn or wheat. Hemp-derived ethanol also shares the advantages of transportation and usability as biodiesel.


While hemp biofuel may not be a popular alternative just yet, the automotive industry already uses hemp. Automakers weave hemp plastic into a bendable material similar to fiberglass. Almost all European car makers use hemp fibers as interior door panels and trim pieces. And companies like FlexForm technologies operate as a dedicated producer of hemp-fiberglass that they sell to automotive companies to be made into car doors and exterior panels. Cars that feature hemp-based materials include the BMW i8 supercar and the Lotus Evora. The advantages that come with hemp-made materials is that they are lighter, bio-degradable, and comes from a much easier renewable resource. Hemp grows in roughly 3 months while metals take thousands of years to form.

Hemp Biofuel: No Green New Deal Without It

Hemp Biofuel: No Green New Deal Without It

Industrial hemp is paramount to anyone supporting radical environmentally-tied economic measures like the Green New Deal in America to overhaul our energy sector. In fact, hemp can do most of the greening work in terms of both addressing climate change realities and economic inequality. No, not female hemp which is being used for CBD flower extracts, but male hemp.

Note: originally published on www.DarbyHemp.com.

‘This is one the most important things everyone needs to about Hemp!’ Invest your time in reading and sharing this…’ Darlene Mea


Unlike the Green New Deal, recent developments with industrial hemp don’t get the PR despite the American hemp farming industry being capable of bringing us to a 100% clean, renewable energy sector by 2030…and we don’t need much government stimulus to pull this off…

Just let farmers farm hemp.

If anything, the government should be incentivizing and helping farmers plants millions of acres (like they did during the war in 1942, although at a much smaller scale for those days — 400’ish thousand acres). I know that’s what the 2018 Farm Bill was about, but should something similar to the Green New Deal be adopted, how much is going to hemp farmers, processors, and hemp biolfuel companies?

Let’s talk hemp biofuel.

While sifting through currently available info on hemp biofuel at the beginning of 2019, you continuously run into a collective ‘if only’ statement in pre-2018 Farm Bill articles:

Industrial hemp is perfectly capable of fueling the modern world without displacing food or adding to the greenhouse effect, if only it were embraced…

Pertaining to America, where tons of the world’s most ardent hempsters reside,

We could easily fuel America with completely green carbon-neutral plant energy if only we had a domestic supply of hemp and it were federally legal to farm…

The fact America could fuel herself through plants was demonstrated decades ago, hemp being the wisest of choices for a wide variety of economic, agronomic, and ecological reasons. After passage of the 2018 Farm Bill and the reclassification of industrial hemp as an agricultural crop, this if-only statement’s no longer relevant with respect to prohibition. Not only is the industrial hemp plant legal to farm on U.S. soil (now defined as a Cannabis Sativa L. plant with equal or less than 0.3% THC), but the plant’s natural compounds are also federally legal as well — which includes up to 0.3% THC with no restrictions on other naturally-occurring elements like CBD, CBN, CBG, terpenes, etc.

If you’re wondering why the recent law’s so wide open, well, the USDA said one of their goals with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 in regards to hemp was to give states as much room as possible to come up with their own sets of regulations regarding the crop and its compounds.

So… now what?

Going back to Henry Ford’s original Model T partly made of and and run on hemp, not to mention the original diesel engine being designed for biofuel, a mind-blowing fact remains:

Dried biomass has a heating value of 5000–8000 Btu/lb. with virtually no ash or sulfur produced during combustion. About 6% [to now 10%] of contiguous United States land area put into cultivation for biomass could supply all current demands for oil and gas. And this production would not add any net carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.” [1]

Do you know how tempted I am to go off on how hemp fiber could turn the fashion industry completely green? Ugh…and today I was shown an article freaking out about the fact the fashion industry (apparel & footwear) accounts for closing in on 10% of human-caused global climate impacts…

Here’s a quote from an April 2019 CBS News article, “Fashion industry’s carbon impact bigger than airline industry’s”,

“Total greenhouse gas emissions related to textiles production are equal to 1.2 billion tons annually — more than those of all international flights and maritime shipping trips combined, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.”

But let’s get back to the biofuel angle which would inevitably mesh with the fashion industry in countless ways.

A biofuel-based infrastructure would create a completely decentralize power grid and no more ultra-mega power companies. Each county and state could provide its own energy using easily renewable plants. Let that seed sink into the garden of your mind…

Example: In Colorado a company called Vega Biofuels offer bio-coal — which is renewable, comparable in price to conventional coal and produced using terrefaction technology — and biochar which can sequester carbon in the soil for hundreds to thousands of years without the negative impacts. Imagine this happening on a wider scale across 5, 10, or 20 states.

Yep, biofuel’s a reality and hemp’s the ticket, backed by scientific research from multiple countries who’ve experimented with a variety of biofuels alongside hemp like Canada, Nigeria [2], across Northern Europe [3], Latvia [4], and so on.

According to some, industrial hemp biofuel performs second only to algae.

  • While it can vary depending on cultivar used and where it’s growing, male hemp-cannabis yields an average of nine dry tons per acre. [5]
  • This means if allowed to flourish, hemp would quickly reach a point where it’s producing greater biomass tonnage per acre annually in more regions of America than either pulpwood or kenaf.
  • Hemp is 80% cellulose: both a low-moisture herbaceous and woody plant.
  • Industrial hemp, in comparison to corn’s 34% energy gain because of its high cellulose content, has an estimated 540% energy gain! [6]
  • According to our very own USDA (who the 2018 Farm Bill designates as the overseer of the U.S. Hemp industry along with the U.S. Attorney General), one acre planted in hemp produces as much pulp as 4.1 acres of trees. But you can harvest hemp at least 3 times a year…

That last one comes from a 1916 report where they predicted by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and no more trees would need be cut down. But here we go again, none of this is novel information (except to a good percentage of the younger generations supporting Green New Deal-style initiatives)…it’s included in every ‘Hemp 101’ handbook.

Colorado’s also been producing hemp paper for a couple years now. I bought a few pages just to see how it smelled and it smelled like environmental salvation…

Interested? Yeah, hemp paper posters, postcards, envelopes, flyers and much more all made from Colorado-grown male hemp stalk. Check out Tree Free Hemp. Expect to see similar options coming from many different states within a matter of years…hopefully!

The End of Hemp Farming Prohibition in America

Guess what, this means the reinforced double-sided industrial hemp door just opened after being nailed shut for nearly a century. Thankfully, today we have a MASSIVE resources ready to be transitioned into leveraging hemp as a multi-purpose crop where we can create ample (protein and fatty acid-rich) food AND biofuel. All we can hope is ‘the people’ getting behind efforts like the Green New Deal rally and really surf this 21st century agricultural revolution.

Again, the hemp farming industry by itself can accomplish most of what the Green New Deal is setting its sights on by itself if supported and allowed to flourish outside the confines of Big Ag — although we need them on board as well.

How America Will Produce Hemp Biofuel

Hemp biofuel comes from hemp seed oil — the same seed oil you can drizzle on salads, add to a smoothie or feed to livestock — and the rest of the plant can be made into either ethanol or methanol.

North America has absolutely no problem extracting oil from seed we can then use to make biofuel. Furthermore, most of the ethanol added to gasoline we currently put into our cars comes from less efficient and environmentally-friendly food crops like wheat and corn. We can use hemp to efficiently make both — ethanol/methanol and biofuel/biodiesel. University of Connecticut’s research shows hemp seed oil provides a 97% conversion rate into biodiesel [7]. America and Canada both have the infrastructure to switch to industrial hemp-based supply chains within a decade — far less with enough public and corporate involvement.

And well, according to a relatively small survey conducted early April 2019 by Morning Consult (they talked to just shy of 2,000 voters across age, education and political spectrums),

Voters say 100% renewable electricity by 2030 is more important than other steps to fight climate change.

For more info-nuggets we can turn to statistics from Health Canada who regulates their industrial hemp industry, showing Canadian hemp farmers planted 138,000 acres in 2017. Most of this Canadian hemp seed is processed into seed oil (as well as hemp seed protein and hearts), which oddly enough was/is sold to Americans where we already have a robust food processing infrastructure.

I hope this is coming across.

What I’m saying here is America and Canada have everything we need already in place in terms of land and plant processing equipment to create a completely human/environmentally-friendly energy system. That’s the truth. Soon, both countries will have more hemp than we’ll know what to do with and all the astounding wonders hempsters have been preaching for decades can manifest. Watch YouTube videos of ordinary people making vegetable oil-based biofuel in their backyard to drive their vehicles right this moment if you want. It’s no secret.

What’ll shock the American populace will be the tremendous amount of industrial hemp seed flowing across the country by the mid-2020s. I love the stuff and try to eat a cup of raw whole hemp seed a day.

When cold-pressed, 8,000 pounds of hemp seed yields over 300 gallons of hemp seed oil and a byproduct of 6,000 pounds of high protein hemp flour.”[8]

A healthy, irrigated acre of seed-based hemp in Colorado in late 2018, as an example, produced 1,100–2000 pounds of seed. [9]

Let’s not even mention what Kentucky could produce on a larger scale…or Oregon…North Dakota and North Carolina…Montana, and so on. We could EASILY spread out hemp farms to collectively 6–10% of the U.S. and cover our energy needs — completely eradicating the need for fossil fuels. Idealistic sure, but what if by 2025, thanks to hemp America became 50% less dependent on conventional dirty fuels — across allsectors of our country?

When I sit back and begin to fathom the overall impacts of what that would mean worldwide…

Reclamation into Fuel Efforts

One of the core uses of planting industrial hemp across greater America between I’d say 2019–2022 could be for use in farmland reclamation — bioremediation — efforts. This is going to clean up the soil, restoring American farms to their glory with dramatically less heavy metals, petrol-based pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, along with anything else poisoning our land. Another note in every Hemp 101 handbook is how the plant’s been used around toxic waste dumps and even radioactive events like Chernobyl to effectively absorb cadmium from the soil, etc…wow! Obviously none of this reclamation hemp should go to human or livestock consumption…but what to do?

We most definitely shouldn’t just burn or toss it. Let’s transform it into energy!

I’m no chemist, but my bet’s that the plant can successfully be used as energy without causing more of a mess. Hemp’s astounding ability in this respect will finally be able to be heavily studied. Because myself and many others would like to know what happens within the plant to these toxins. Are they still there when the plant’s harvested? Or, does it somehow convert a good percentage to clean energy within itself? Can it be successfully transformed into hemp biofuel? If so, let’s use all that reclamation hemp while cleaning up our toxic soil.

A Note on Pyrolysis

From my own amateur research, it seems like Pyrolysis is going to be the most efficient process for hemp biomass conversion — capable of competing against initially, and then potentially becoming a replacement for fossil fuels.

Pyrolysis is the thermochemical process that converts organic materials into usable fuels. Pyrolysis produces energy fuels with high fuel-to-feed ratios, making it the most efficient process for biomass conversion…the technique of applying high heat to organic matter (lignocellulosic materials) in the absence of air or in reduced air. The process can produce charcoal, condensable organic liquids (pyrolytic fuel oil), non-condensable gasses, acetic acid, acetone, and methanol. The process can be adjusted to favor charcoal, pyrolytic oil, gas, or methanol production with a 95.5% fuel-to-feed efficiency” [10]

The people of this world need our Hemp Billionaires and Zillionaires to step up. We need people with capital and the government to get behind and support these types of industrial hemp farming initiatives. We need to fund research and do things by the book. We need farmers to start hemp growing for biofuel along with the ultra-lucrative hemp-derived CBD concentrates/extracts. And textiles!

We need energy companies to start converting from using other less efficient sources of biofuel to hemp. It’s going to be a wild ride…but I’m alive so I have a ticket.

Thanks for your time.

5 Benefits of Juicing Cannabis You Probably Didn’t Know

5 Benefits of Juicing Cannabis You Probably Didn’t Know

Most people know you can smoke marijuana and ingest CBD oil, but did you know you can juice the leaves (and not get high)?

Did you know? In addition to providing valuable medicinal and stress-relieving benefits when ingested and smoked, the marijuana plant can be used for everything from making clothing and fireproof construction materials to paper, biofuel, and plastic that decomposes in a timely manner. There’s one application of cannabis few know about or use, however, and that’s juicing the green leaves.

The notion might sound weird or gross at first, but we assure you that there are a number of benefits to juicing cannabis leaves you won’t want to miss out on. Five of the best follow:

1) You won’t get high from juicing and drinking the leaves

Let’s face it, smoking cannabis isn’t for everyone. However, even those that don’t want to toke can agree on the fact that there are numerous medicinal compounds provided by the plant. For this reason, juicing cannabis leaves might be deemed an excellent idea.

Reportedly, juicing raw cannabis provides one with a bounty of chlorophyll, bone-building minerals, terpenes, CBD (medicinal component proven to “cure” cancer), and other cannabinoids) – all without a strong psychoactive effect. Leaf Science elaborates,

“Since heat is required to convert the THCA [THC-acid] in raw cannabis into THC, its psychoactive form, juicing provides a way of obtaining many of the benefits of cannabis without getting high.”

2) Patients can consume higher doses

Those who are battling cancer or seek relief from seizures and/or conditions such as Parkinson’s are likely to benefit from introducing cannabis oil into their regime. Another method of ingesting compounds of the plant, however, is juicing the leaves and this can be just as – or even more – beneficial to the patient.

According to Dr. William Courtney, the founder of Cannabis International Foundation,

“THC can be taken in doses of hundreds of milligrams when in its acid form (juiced). However, once heated, the tolerable dose drops to 10 mg a day.”

In summary, one can consume more of the plant when it’s ingested in a juiced form.

3) Juicing a cannabis bud WILL make someone high

If someone desires to get high but does not smoke or prefers to avoid smelling like the herb, they can juice the flower of the plant to experience a psychoactive trip. One might choose to do this because they have respiratory issues (there are presently no adverse health effects associated with smoking marijuana) or because they prefer to ingest it in a least-harmful method.

As David Wolfe points out, consuming a cannabis flower in juiced form will get someone high, as the two major cannabinoids in the plant exist almost entirely in an acid form. These are known as  Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THC-A) and Cannabidiolic Acid (CBD-A) or “THC-acid” and “CBD-acid.” 

“When these acidic cannabinoids are heated, they are decarboxylated which means they lose their carbon dioxide molecule and become more active. During that process, the cannabinoids change from the acid form to the activated form.  This happens automatically when cannabis flower buds are smoked or vaporized. This also occurs when the cannabis is cooked in coconut oil, olive oil, or ghee even over low heat.”

THC is the component that may result in the user feeling “high” and experiencing episodes of euphoria. CBD is the non-psychoactive acid that will not get one “high” but will help to counteract the effects of THC, such as paranoia.

4) It’s incredibly versatile

On its own, cannabis leaf juice may not taste the best. Fortunately, it’s incredibly versatile and easy to work with. One might add it to a beet-carrot-apple-ginger juice or pour freshly-juiced cannabis leaves into a morning orange juice.

Additionally, because juicing the cannabis leaves will not get one high, they can consume it on-the-go, which means in the car, at the gym or while picking their kids up from school.

5) There are massive health benefits
