The following content is an audio transcription of the HempAware Radio recorded June 18th 2013. Keep in mind this was prior to Hemp being legal to grow in the USA.
Greetings. This is HempAware Radio ready and inspired to share with you how you can integrate this amazing plant called hemp into your holiday celebrations.
This hemp episode is entitled Share Hemp in Your Home for the Holidays.
And as you may know, HempAware Radio is committed to sharing the most essential information, knowledge, tools and products all made from the hemp plant.
THE PURPOSE OF HEMPAWARE
So one thing that we’d like to be clear and upfront about is that we’re representing and spreading awareness about all the ways industrial hemp can be used to make food, shelter, clothing, and literally thousands of goods and services that have nothing to do with a drug called marijuana.
Hemp is not a drug.
So when we say that we’re going to share ways for you to use hemp in your home for the holidays, we are referring to gift ideas, foods, craft related and gift wrapping ideas, clothing, accessories, and a lot of other really cool items that can be produced from the hemp plant.
USE HEMP TWINE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
So to begin, Hemp twine is a wonderful natural- looking way to tie up your presence.
If you like to use natural colors and raw materials for wrapping your presence, then hemp twine is a fun, simple, cost effective way to do that.
And also similar to hemp twine is hemp yarn.
I know that there are a few companies in the US and a few others worldwide that provide hemp yarn, so, you definitely want to check that out.
So if you’re a crafty person and, and wanna make something nice for a friend out of hemp yarn, I’m sure they’ll appreciate the fact that it’s natural toxin-free, soft, eco-friendly, handmade.
So industrial hemp, as you may know, it’s specifically the seed and the fiber that comes from the cannabis plant.
So what that means is the hemp seed and fiber can be made into what Popular Mechanics magazine said that hemp can be used to produce more than 25,000 products.
And that was back in the 1930’s where they actually wrote that in an article entitled, HEMP The Billion Dollar Crop.
USE HEMP SEEDS FOR THE HOLIDAYS
So another one of the products that you could share this holiday season is the raw hemp seed. And they’re also called, Shelled hemp seeds or hemp nuts.
They are also called hemp hearts. If you live near a health food store, it’s very likely they will have hemp seeds.
If you don’t have a health food store near you, then ask your local grocery store to get hemp seeds there.
The more demand, the quicker we can experience a transformation and live abundantly and prosper without harming ourselves and our environment, integrating hemp into our businesses, into our grocery stores, our homes, into our lifestyle, into our community.
And if you don’t want to do that, you can simply go online and get hemp seeds in bulk and maybe save a little money and a trip to the store.
And if you don’t really care about spreading the word about hemp… which most people that learn about hemp, every hemp entrepreneur and person that has been inspired by hemp, or learned about the truth of the history of hemp, they have been totally inspired to want to talk about it, and share it with other people.
So some people are more involved than others, but for some reason when I was introduced to this plant, I was so inspired to actually commit, and dedicat. a huge portion of my life and, myself too, sharing , the knowledge and the wisdom and the benefit and the value of this plant.
So, what are a few ways you could use hemp seeds and recipes for the holidays?
Well, for one, they’re amazing to pair with any type of yam or sweet potato dish. Mashed potato type dishes really do well with a hint of temp nuts sprinkled on, soups are another great dish you could garnish with nutty hemp seeds, like a pumpkin soup or squash soup or, lentil soup or whatever you have around the holidays.
If you like fresh salads, they can, be thrown into your, hemp homemade dressings, or lightly dashed with him part to make it a creamier experience on your salad.
You can just sprinkle them on top. There are a few new brands out there making hemp ice cream that you might wanna look for. Vanilla hemp ice cream is, in my opinion, excellent ice cream topped with a chocolate sauce or placed on top of warm holiday cobbler.
