Hemp History Week Giveaway: The Wonder Seed

Congratulations David Piller and Michelle Howe! Please check your email for further instructions. Thank you all for participating!

————————————

Today marks the start of the 5th annual Hemp History Week. Hemp is a miracle plant that is healthy, sustainable, and has many uses. I love hemp for so many reasons. There has been lots of hemp history being made recently. At the state level 13 states have legalized hemp farming. At the federal level, this year’s farm bill legalized hemp farming for research purposes. This research is currently only permitted by Universities and the Department of Agriculture within the 13 legalized states. In honor of this week, lets get excited about companies that are utilizing this amazing resource and making great healthy and eco products!

The Wonder Seed Products

The Wonder Seed is a company as such. On a mission to carry out a sustainable and vegan business, the Hellings Family dove into hemp research and educated themselves. From its soil cleansing properties and minimal water consumption to its nutritious amino acid and vitamin rich oil, an Ecocert and vegan certified natural skin care company was created. Their hemp seed oil comes from a fair trade, organic, family owned farm grown in it’s native terrain of China. The company is hoping to move the production to Hawaii since hemp grows best in tropical climates.

The Hellings Family

You have the chance to win 7 of their hemp products: facial cleanser, facial cream, hand cream, body lotion, body wash, shampoo & conditioner! Two lucky winners will be chosen on Friday June 6th so stay tuned! To qualify, leave me a comment below telling me why you are excited about hemp and what else can we do to make hemp farming legal at a federal level in the U.S.?

    Hi Alicia! Oh the cannabis plant is extremely beneficial…the commercial and industrial uses of its stock (hemp) and the medical uses of the leaf and flower (marijuana). It’s an incredible plant that has been given such a bad reputation in the past. Luckily, things are starting to change.

    All of the following are reasons why I’m excited about hemp: it is more durable than products made from wood or cotton; it requires half the amount of water to grow the same amount of cotton in weight; and it requires no pesticides! Hemp can be used for various things from food to biofuel and there would be several economic benefits if cannabis production (hemp farming) was legalized on the federal level: lowered crime rate; job creation; and a rise in the economy to name a few. Hemp itself has been used for thousands of years, and the first federal ban of cannabis didn’t occur until the 1930s. Believe it or not, our founding fathers had hemp farms!

    So what can we do? Continue consuming the products, continue the petitions, be active and if that doesn’t work (and if you feel inclined to do so) move! Move to a state where cannabis (hemp) production is legal. If the demand is high enough, the other states will follow and eventually, there will be a federal legalization.

    Hemp farming can revitalize areas of Kentucky that have relied on coal mining and tobacco. We can educate, educate, educate public officials to understand that hemp farming does not produce the same crop as marijuana.

    Hemp products have the potential to contribute to the environment in such a positive way. From the minimal water necessary for growing, to the lack of animal tested products (from my limited knowledge) there is an incredible opportunity presenting itself. I think if our legislatures could see the $$$ behind the miracle seed they might have a better way of incorporating legal farming into our society. For now, I will be happy that the Hellings Family has given so much of themselves to help us be better consumers!

  • Tammy

    I am excited about hemp because there are so many benifits and so much you can do with it!! Maybe creating a petition to go around to all state legislatures and then holding a march to get attention to it and presenting it in a way that the federel level feels they could have benifit from making farming hemp legal would be helpful?!

  • Lauren Maher

    I love adding hemp seeds to my green smoothies and salads. They’re a great source of protein and healthy fats. I think a big reason people don’t use hemp or don’t support hemp is a lack of understanding of what hemp is (I.e., not weed). It’s all about information and familiarity.

  • http://goodnrg.com Cynthia Sebastian

    Beautiful, Kind and tuned in Alicia! I loved hearing you on the Home Prarie show this last Sunday!” The Kind Mama” sounds like a wonderful book for new moms and moms that want to improve by helping to keep our planet “Green”.I will be purchasing it for all the new moms that I know! I also am a fan of your New and IMPROVED rice crispy treats which I make from The Skinny Green Bitch cook book…

    In regards to Hemp, I am a major supporter and LOVE eating the stuff. I put it in my Super Food Smoothie every morning. I also make my own cereal, ( that is not cooked) by combining Hemp seeds, Chia seeds, Buckwheat in a bowl with Hemp Milk. I let it sit for 5 minutes and either eat it with some fresh berries or add it to my Vita mix drink. There is a company out of Canada that makes this same cereal and it”s called ” Holy Crap!” Yes you read that right! I laughed so hard when I first heard of it, bought it, loved it, and decided I could make it myself. The clothes that I have from Hemp are delicious, I love the way the fabric becomes softer and softer with age. I also love the way it lets your skin breathe.
    I don”t put anything on my skin that I could not eat, so The Wonder Seed is my fancy lotion.
    I am addicted to the Daisy Fresh Cleanser and Facial Cream, love love love the way my skin looks and feels!

    My website Good NRG will be up in the next week and I intend to promote and help people to understand how important good nutrition is. I will be talking a lot about Hemp and how these Super foods enrich and invigorate our lives. It”s my passion! The first time I met Theresa at Whole Foods she was doing a promo on her products and I had several bags of Hemp Seeds in my cart so of course we started talking, she is stellar, and like yourself doing so much good. It would be an honor and a hoot and hollar to win these wonderful products… Hope Your having The Best Day Ever! Bye for now.

    p.s we also have a Congressman in the family who is pro hemp
    Alan Lowenthal

    47th District of Congress

  • Alex Andrei Stefan

    The medical, economic, and social benefits of hemp are reasons enough to be excited about legalization that the majority favors. To legalize hemp on the federal level, we must all vote for Hillary in 2016, and for a democratic House and Senate that is willing to act on the Democratic principals of majority rule and autonomy of US citizens.

  • Mary Mougeot

    I think its a great idea, sooner than we think, it will be ok for the hemp for sure.

  • Tasha

    I recently got rid of all chemical-filled products in my home. These hemp products would be perfect!! :)

  • A Lamb

    I am excited about Hemp because I recently used an Atlantic Healing Hemp (Nova Scotia business) lotion and it worked extremely well. Much better than any synthetic product on the market. Hemp is healing! I think the U.S. will evolve over the next ten years and Hemp will flourish! Society is awakening to the knowledge that nature provides us with what we need to survive.

  • http://veganfoodjourney.blogspot.com/ Stephanie R.

    I really like hemp seeds for the benefits to my body and the bath and beauty products are such high quality.

  • Leanne

    I am excited about hemp because it can be used in sooooo many incredible ways. And, just because it can also be used negatively, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be used at all. (We’re not going to outlaw spatulas just because a kid or two has taken one across the butt, are we? Or are we!?) I think we can help make hemp farming legal if we, as consumers, purchase great hemp products. Money has a way of making people notice.

  • Jenn

    I am so very excited about hemp making its way to legalization in the states. It is such a great plant for so many reasons! It is sustainable for the environment and oh so healthy for us! If you believe in this precious resource, tell your local lawmakers. Write them, call them, set up a meeting and talk to them. Our state representatives are there to represent US. Let them know what you want!! Look up some great talking points online and write them an email as a starting point…we really can make a difference! Thanks so much for this offer Alicia, and all that you do.

  • Jonny C.

    Hemp truly is an amazing, super abundant, easy to grow, plant/tree(they do become massive) So many great uses in all aspects of life. I myself use hemp to make bracelets and, pretty much anything that can be braided. I use hemp and leather, but mainly hemp. The fact that we have something natural, that can be grown anywhere, and grown in huge portions, and is great for the environment. that could replace so many other natural resources, save our trees. I mean i heard we could even use it to fuel cars?, if that’s true, then what other proofs do those who oppose need, to at least say, “okay, lets try it” whats the worst that would happen…..nothing, because without trying, there will never be success. Not to mention how delicious hemp seeds and oil are. seeds in yogurt is super delicious. It saddens me that so many people wont even consider it, even with all the facts, but things are looking up, and more and more are opening their minds and hearts, and learning to truths, and finally giving it a shot, again, im sure our forefathers would be proud.People need to start voicing their opinions about the matters at hand, for we are the ones who truly should have a say in anything that deals with how we chose to live our lives, including the things we use and consume.

  • Sanna Haynes

    I love hemp because of all the health benefits! If more attention was was brought to the plant in this way(via independent studies, publicity, etc), we could maybe begin to break down the stigma that is attached with hemp.

  • jdgrannie2

    Glad hemp is getting recognized for its many benefits.

  • Alissa Sherman

    Hi,
    It’s my birthday month so this would be awesome to win! Thanks!

  • Zach Edwards

    Thanks for kicking off Hemp HIstory Week with this giveaway! I believe there are two things we need to do in order to move forward with wide-spread hemp production:

    1.) Educate the public (and Members of Congress) – Hemp is not a drug, and it’s not a danger to the public. Coalitions of parents/police could help to spread that message. Hemp is not a drug.

    2.) A “Freedom to Farm” Concept – Congress will need to act in order to legalize widescale hemp production, and the only way to pass a bill will be with bipartisan support. It should be clear from day one that Hemp production is a Jobs bill — it will cut down our reliance on foriegn exports, and empower our farmers with another easy to grow crash crop. Members of Congress need to understand this is a commonsense rural jobs bill. // If you could raise ~$1 million for ads targeting people who suppport / oppose hemp production, it may help to spur action.

    Best of luck with this effort and thanks for your work!

  • David Piller

    I’m excited about hemp because it’s fundamental to our co-creation of a healthier planet for ourselves and future generations.
    To make hemp legal at the federal level, we can all contact our Senators in DC and urge them to co-sponsor S.359, The Industrial Hemp Farming Act via http://votehemp.com/takeaction/

  • Alicia Dunable

    I didn’t realize hemp could be used for so much! I have sensitive skin that responds better to organic, truly natural products, so I’m excited to see if this brand is right for me!

  • Natalie McMonagle

    Hemp is universal! I am constantly in awe of the unique ways creative individuals are putting into new use. Bravo to The Wonder Seed for attempting to make the move to Hawaii! It would bring in new jobs for Americans and help spread the word about the benefits of hemp farming here in the US!

  • jen

    I love it because it’s both eco & animal friendly. I will write my Congress person. Research will show it’s land benefits & health benefits. And you can continue to publicize it’s benefits and encourage a greater market for its products.

  • Brandi Young

    I am excited about the sustainability of Hemp and how many uses this crop can accomplish! I think that awareness is the key to achieving federal approval, so increased education would be helpful in understanding Hemp.

  • Carrie D.

    Hemp is incredibly versatile and misunderstood by many. I think the key to federal approval is by educating the folks who can make it a reality. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  • http://www.undertheroot.com/ Jennifer M

    It is all so incredibly exciting for our United States! The opportunities, from an eco lingerie designer point of view, to turn the ferris wheel of the sustainable supply chain into a gleaming, shiny path. There are a handful of things we can do now to support the progress and security for this multi-level, healthier alternative to foreign imports, jobs, plus the love that this plant offers our planet.
    1. read and vote, call your Senators too: http://www.votehemp.com/
    2. be informed and inform the community surrounding you
    3. continue to be an advocate for farmers, small businesses, local resources, and proponents of hemp production, farming, and manufacturing
    4. keep it local and support the dickens out of our control for where our monies go
    5. share, love, and then love some more

  • Jennifer Albertsen Blonsley

    We have a place here that makes a green hemp smoothie. Yum! I am excited to see more places using hemp for it’s wonderful health benefits.

  • Lisa P.

    I am a nutrition nerd and I love adding hemp to my salads. It has so many health benefits!

  • http://goodnrg.com Cynthia Sebastian

    All parts of the Hemp plant are useful. Hemp can be used to make virtually anything that is currently made of Cotton, timber, or petroleum. And hemp produces a superfood seed.
    My favorite!
    The hempseed is a complete protein source. The oil from hempseed has the highest percentage of essential fatty acids of nearly any seed on the planet earth. It typically sprouts on the hemp plant late in the growing season ( during autumn), lowering phytic acid and increasing enzymes, which makes the seed even more digestible.Hempseed”s
    essential fatty acids and protein profile provide a healthy alternative to fish, which is becoming increasingly risky to eat, given rising mercury and PCB contamination. Besides, I love fish and don”t want to eat them.
    Hemp leaves are also edible. They contain a high percentage of silica, which is useful in building strong bones, shiny, beautiful hair, radiant skin and strong nails. Hemp leaf is rich in fiber. One side is of the hemp leaf is soft and the other side is abrasive, so as the leaf is eaten and the fiber moves through the body , the sides of the leaf churn through the digestive tract, scrubbing and softly cleaning the intestines. Who knew we could clean our intestines with hemp!
    And we have barely scratched the surface! There are also the following uses for Hemp…
    Hemp Textiles, Hemp body care products, like Wonder Seed and Dr. Bronner’s , Hemp paper, Hemp Plastics, Hemp buiding materials, Hemp rope, Hemp fuel. When hemp is burned as fuel, any carbon dioxide released from the burning hemp matches the carbon dioxide the plant has beneficially taken from the environment during it”s lifetime, creating a closed carbon cycle that slows down the effects of atmospheric pollution. Talk about a miracle plant!
    47% of each hempseed is comprised of “good fats” with an ideal balance of Omega 3 ( alpha-linolenic-acid) and omega 6 essential fatty acids . Hempseed is also one of the few seeds that contains chlorophyll. Present inside each hempsedd are infant green leaves that will eventually open and grow as seed sprouts. The original “Kind Mama!”
    Hempseed protein can also be more readily absorbed than any animal protein because it blends easily into water, beverages, smoothies, shakes, and salad dressings without coagulation or heat. Hempseed is so friendly, (KIND) and easy to digest. As you can see,
    I LOVE Hemp and want to see it become legal. We have a congressman in our family in the 47th district Allen Lownthal who will be doing the people’s work to bring this “Wonder Seed” back to fruition! I would be honored to be part of this process!

    Thank you and Have a healthy and happy day!

  • Tammy

    I love that you share so much helpful information with us, including new products. I’m always looking for organic, healthy products for my daughter, my husband and myself, and this looks like just what I’m looking for! I love hemp because it has so many uses — I’m vegan, and my daughter’s vegetarian, and it’s such a great source of protein for both of us. I always have more energy when I include it in my diet. I think that, to make hemp farming legal in the US, we need to either look at the current research or put money into research demonstrating its benefits. I’m always following along with the latest nutrition/health research, and I believe that as long as we’re allowing unbiased research to guide our decisions, we can make the healthiest choices for our nation.

  • Tabitha

    I love vegan products that aren’t petroleum-based. I can’t wait to try this.

  • Shelly Brown

    I’m not sure I was excited about hemp until I read this post and saw the picture. Their outfits are so beautiful and they are all three glowing.

  • Kelly Igneczi

    Absolutely love hemp seeds! Legalization should not be an issue when there are numerous positive effect’s of the heep seed!

  • Rachel Mertz-Rodriguez

    Hemp is so common sense. Nationally, we need to take the lead from progressive areas within the country that already understand how common sense hemp is and already reaping the economic benefits.

  • Megan

    I am excited about hemp because it has so many uses and is an easily sustainable plant. What can you do to make hemp farming legal? Educate people on its uses and benefits! I cant wait to try these products!

  • Anne Perry

    I love that hemp is stronger than cotton. Can be used for so many things as well.

  • Sharon Gjertsen

    I love to add hemp seeds in baked goods – biscuits especially!

  • beckie

    I love hemp because it grows literally like a weed and requires little to no fertilizer or pesticides. Hemp milk tastes great and I am excited that we are moving in the right direction towards legalization of this valuable resource/crop.

  • Cat

    I’m glad to read that hemp isn’t a harmful plant! I think the biggest problem in the USA is that people only associate hemp with drugs and nothing else

  • Michele

    It’s amazing! Good for the environment and full of all the essential amino acids AND fatty acids needed for human life — it makes perfect sense!

  • Jennifer

    I’m excited about hemp because it’s so versatile. I like that it can be used for textiles, beauty products, food, etc. I want hemp farming to become legal at a federal level because I think it’s important for there to be more natural (and safer) products on the market for consumers. It’s ridiculous to me that the synthetic products far outnumber what is natural, safe, and good for the environment. We all need to spread the information about hemp and educate the public!

  • Michelle Howe

    I love hemp. It’s economical, earth and animal friendly and healthy. I believe we could all contact our state and federal reps and try to show them the truth about hemp. Show them all the pros there are.

  • Martha Lawson

    I am still learning about the benefits of hemp and am very excited about it’s potential.

  • Kate

    I am excited to see the growing awareness when it comes to the benefits of hemp. I appreciate the natural values.I use hemp protein and buy products made from hemp. Through the growth of knowledge and awareness a difference can be made through each one of us. We can share the variety of uses to further expand on the benefits of the wonderful qualities not only for ourselves, but on the eco system to our family and friends. We can also write about hemp in our blogs,write the Congressmen and continue to find other ways to vocalize our choices.

  • http://www.pursuitsofpassion.com/ Heather

    Hemp is amazing for health benefits, clothing, and I’m sure for several other reasons I’m not even aware of yet. Awareness, Education, and Advocates are necessary to make hemp farming legal. Let us know how we can help!

  • http://www.undertheroot.com/ Jennifer M

    I am absolutely and incredibly thrilled about bringing back hemp farms to the United States. My understanding of what the possibilities are, from an eco lingerie designer point of view, will support an even more sustainable supply chain. The way we can support this movement of the evolution is to:

    1. take a stand and vote and contact your local government officials: http://www.votehemp.com/
    2. inform ourselves of what this exactly entails and how to decrease the red tape for farmers to utilize the land
    3. support manufacturing, mills, production, and businesses whom do the same
    4. love and share with our community
    5. be involved, and love some more

  • Darcey Priss

    The US is much closer to federally legalizing industrial hemp farming. The United States House of Representatives passed a bill on 5/30/14 that prevents the DEA and DOJ from interfering with state sanctioned hemp cultivation. Now, it’s up to the US Senate, to pass the bill and President Obama, to sign it. We need to support the bill, educate our peers about it and voice our opinions to our Senators before they vote! I’m overjoyed about hemp because it has a plethora of practical uses! It’s safe for the environment, animals and people, to farm and use hemp, especially in place of non-renewable resources. Thank you for your focus and action on this, and all issues you’re bringing light to!

  • saniel

    I love hemp in my smoothies and I will alert my congress representative.

  • Angel Kendrick

    I am excited about hemp for health and environment reasons.
    Educate, Educate,Educate..this can not be said enough, people need to know the benefits of hemp and the stigma that it is a drug needs to be taken away, this will only happen from education,the public needs to hear more positive stories about how and where hemp is grown and its benefits !

  • Ann

    I love hemp seed in my morning smoothies, and hemp fiber in my textiles. Some of my ancestors were hemp farmers in Missouri before it was made illegal, so I feel a connection with the effort to re-legalize it in the US. I think that it is a matter of educating the public about the value and safety of the plant, along with putting pressure on our representatives in the senate and the house to look at the issue rationally and move forward with legalization. Emails, phone calls and petitions to our lawmakers do make a difference–let’s get busy!

  • longevità

    We can help legalize hemp farming by supporting research to prove it’s beneficial health impact and compare it to several of the more legal plants its healing properties compare to. I have help lotion (brand: hempz) that I use everyday. It moisturizes beyond any level I’ve ever had in a lotion. I wake up and my skin is as soft as a pillow. It does a great job of conditioning all layers of the skin without being greasy or leaving a strong scent. It is my favorite beauty product, above my makeup and even hair products!

  • tracie carver

    Its so nice to see another great hemp product come to market, cant wait to try it. I think hemp farming would become legal if more people were educated about it. Hemp is fairly new and people are misinformed about it, so I think educating people would be the way to go.

  • http://sotherebyamy.blogspot.com/ Amy @ So There by Amy

    It seems to have so many health benefits. I am excited to learn more!

  • Kristy

    I am excited about hemp because the seeds are SO nutritious to eat and materials that can be made from the plant are so eco friendly and biodegradable! To make farming legal we can keep supporting hemp products and petition for the right to farm!

  • Rebecca Murphy

    I would love to try these products! I have used a hemp lotion in the past that I loved but they don’t make it anymore. I’m excited about hemp because of its health benefits, versatility, and sustainability. I think to legalize hemp farming we need to educate people about the benefits and the difference between marijuana as a drug and industrial hemp.

  • Kyra

    I love hemp! It is versatile with so many great uses. The clothing is wonderful and I love the health benefits of it as well. The help make smoothies delicious!! Such a great additive to morning routines and sprinkle hemp seeds in salads!!

    To help make it more legal I suggest not only getting the word out via media sources (facebook, blogs, twitter, etc) and via online petitions, but handwritten letters or phone calls to the states and higher up. The more we do, the more others will take notice and listen.

  • Allison Litten

    I LOVE hemp seeds and making things with them. I’d love to explore hemp more with regards to clothing and other everyday uses. Right now I mostly eat it!

  • tammy

    We are way behind the times on getting the legalization done. Hemp was part of the founding of this Country – George Washington grew it, Thomas Jefferson etc. as it is probably the best sustainable plant to grow and provide so so many different uses. It was the rich and powerful that got it made illegal as they were worried about their business of producing paper and their lumber yards. Hemp was a better product and would hurt their bottom line. With their money they got the government to make all hemp illegal and it has hurt us ever since. Just look at all the clear cutting and forests ruined. For food, clothing, paper, etc – Hemp is the best renewable resource out there.

  • Jennifer

    I’m excited about hemp because it’s a wonderful source of protein. The seed is easy to add to salads, smoothies anything. Go hemp!

  • Leona Resteiner

    Love wearing it too! Where can I order a large bag to fill my yoga sitting pillow? I live in Arizona. Leigh , certified health coach

    hemp can replace paper, clothes etc. save so many trees , forests etc. this planet needs hemp to be legal to grow and be farmed to save this beautiful planet of ours.. I am in love with reading all about hemp and all its wonders and just cant wait to try all its magics

  • Laura

    Hi Theresa. It is cannabis oil that has low THC but the strain he needs has such low a THC that it is now legalized as hemp! I hope that is all he needs but he may need more THC as well.
