Hemp seed oil is pressed from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, not to be confused with its psychoactive cousin. In fact, industrial hemp and marijuana are different species of the Cannabis sativa plant.
Most countries distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana on the basis of THC (main intoxicant in marijuana) content and permit the growing of non-psychoactive low THC hemp for fiber and seed. But the US Drug Enforcement lumps low non-psychoactive THC with marijuana, making the US the only major industrialized nation prohibiting the growing and processing of hemp. So we use certified organic hemp seed oil from Canada as our base ingredient in our product line.
Hemp is a sustainable and environmental super plant. Little to no pesticides or herbicides are used for growing hemp. It grows quickly, and does little damage to the ground compared to other popular crops.
Hemp is nutritious for our bodies and we feel it's the healthiest oil to be absorbed into your skin. It is rich in Omega 6, Omega 3 and GLA essential fatty acids, making it an excellent omega source for the vegan diet. The unsaturated fatty acid composition makes it an excellent emollient and ideal for body care products because it enters directly into the layers of dry skin cells to replenish missing oils.
About The Merry Hempsters
The Merry Hempsters are dedicated to promoting the extraordinary benefits of hemp seed oil (Cannabis sativa) through the production of uniquely effective and environmentally friendly vegan and organic hemp skin care products. They use only the finest quality natural ingredients in combination with cutting edge eco-friendly packaging. Core concepts of their mission are to produce effective hemp lip balms, salves and rubs, in concert with the environmental sustainability of ingredients and packaging.
They strive to be responsible for the entire life span of all of products from start to finish. Environmental sustainability, from the creation of the lip balm tubing (including all who take part in its creation) to the disposal of that tubing, is of utmost concern. They use only tree-free paper produced from hemp stock, soy based inks, and post-consumer recycled content in correspondence and packaging. Their ultimate goal is to one day use only tree-free hemp stock for all paper and packaging needs.
All Merry Hempsters products feature Canadian Certified Organic Hemp Seed Oil as a primary base. Their lip balms, salves and rubs are all unique in their healing properties and intended use. Because of the genuine benefits of hemp seed oil and a growing awareness of the importance of sustainability, they have an established presence in the U.S and Canadian marketplace. The Merry Hempsters have been in business since 1994. Each year they show an increase in market exposure, not just because hemp has good marketing appeal, but because it really works! Hemp is nutritious, sustainable and versatile. It's truly good for the body, mind and soul.
