Hemp has been an integral part of life for many cultures throughout the world for thousands of years. Seed husk remains were discovered in Neolithic burial sites, indicating the significance of this plant in ancient times. The hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) is one of the earliest known cultivated crops, and it has many uses including textiles, fiber, wood, plastic and fuel alternatives. In the early 1940's, Henry Ford built a car that was made completely of hemp plastic and fueled by hemp oil. The constitution of the United States was drafted on hemp paper and 'founding fathers' of the United States, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, were hemp farmers!

The essential amino acids in hemp are at levels that contribute significantly to the human body's requirements. In particular, hemp is a great source of the sulphur-containing amino acids methionine and cysteine, both of which are necessary for the production of enzymes. Hemp also contains an abundance of branched chain amino acids that play a key role in the growth and repair of lean body mass, which is of special interest to athletes.
