Hemp Seed Foods becoming legal in
Australia and New Zealand.
In April this year the Australian Government finally approved the sale
of Low THC Hemp Seed Foods for human consumption.
Slowly but surely, Australia and New Zealand are catching up to the rest of the world!!
Although this ground breaking legislation won’t come into affect until November 2017,
the future of Australia Hemp is suddenly and irreversibly
Already some great new Australian Hemp Foods brands are sprouting up.
Check out Australian Primary Hemp.
These guys are based in Victoria, and here is a picture of their stunning 16/17 crop. Little beauties!
The Hemp Store will be stocking their Australian Grown Hemp Seeds as soon as they are available.
WHAT DOES LEGALISATION MEAN?
Up until now Hemp Foods sold in Australia have had to wear the ridiculous “not for human consumption” label to be able to stay on our shelves and in our pantries.
Although many of us have been purchasing and consuming Hemp Seed, Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp Protein for years, it is fantastic that the Australian Government has finally approved these and given a huge thumbs up to the Australian Hemp Seed Food industry.
YOU SHOULD BE THINKING:

- Hemp Muslie
- Hemp Pasta
- Hemp Spreads

and so, so much more…
