Tarryn : - When Lisa first told me about the oil , I was having an allergic reaction to wheat . I ’ d had hives all over my body for 3 months and I would have done anything to get rid of it .
Then Lisa showed me all these little receptors that exist inside our body for cannabinoids and how many of these receptors were inside the gut . Given the reaction was coming from my gut I figured it was worth a shot and I noticed it eased the itching almost immediately .
I noticed over the next couple of weeks that my sleep improved , I also had no more pain in my knees . So naturally , I was sharing the oil with my friends and family . One of my friends who I shared with had an amazing experience with her son who had neurological challenges , after seeing that I was well impressed .
We all drove to meet the formulator and after a long discussion and sharing our commitment and purpose to help people , we asked if he would partner with us so we could bring this oil to the market . He said yes and NZ Hempress was born . HEMPRESS FULL SPECTRUM

I can't believe it's not Meat
Why did you choose Hemp as a plant based alternative
It is high in protein and we were able to use a by-
product of our current process. We see a mega trend
moving towards plant-based meat alternatives and also
saw hemp as being a very attractive alternative in that
space. Which is currently dominated by soy and pea
We also did not want to settle on just hemp seed oil
or hearts, that can be imported into the country from
overseas very cheaply and easily.
We wanted something that was not just a food processor
option, but something that looks and feels like a white
meat alternative. And, something that packs a punch in
the protein area.
Do you think hemp will be a superior plant-based meat
We believe with the coming huge numbers of hemp
growers, and that the fact that hemp seed is now legal
in the food stream, there will be a lot of new and novel
ways the hemp seed will find it's way into different
types of food products.
What is your company(s) outlook for hemp-based food
products in the future? What can we see coming down
Through our partnerships there will be a lot of amazing
food products that our hemp will be used for.
