With more research and acceptance, the realities of the uses of hemp are being recognized. The food section of the National Defense Resource Preparedness executive order defines hemp as a food resource and we should all include it in our current diet. Why you may ask?

Hemp has a very high protein content as well as the essential fatty acids that our body needs to maintain its healthy defences.

Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness March 16, 2012
