Manitoba Harvest Questions & Answers
What are the differences between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are much like a sweet pepper and a hot pepper, or a Chihuahuas and a Great Dane. Hemp and marijuana are both part of the cannabis plant family but are very different. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods products contain 0.001% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will NOT cause a psychoactive effect nor will their products cause a false positive drug test.
Are hemp foods safe for pregnant women?
Yes. Hemp contains numerous nutritional benefits so it is a great addition to expectant mothers' diets.
Are hemp foods safe for small children?
Absolutely! Hemp foods are delicious, easy to use, and are packed with protein and oemgas. People of all ages enjoy Manitoba Harvest products. What is important to remember is erving size. Children in general consume less than a fully-grown adult. For children, consider body weight when determining serving size - much like you would with any other food. As a general guideline, cut the recommended serving size shown on each package by 1/3 or 1/2 depending on teh child's age and size.
Are hemp foods safe for animals?
Animals and pets are important members of your family and you want to ensure their proper diet and nutrition. Manitoba Harvest is not an animal food manufacturer so they recommend contacting your trusted animal care professional for specific advice. However, Manitoba Harvest receives countless testimonials from customers about the observed benefits of adding hemp foods (hemp oil in particular) to their pets' diet. The omegas found in hemp have been shown to be therapeutic with animals' coats, joints, digestive systems, and overall well-being. Plus, animals seem to love the rich nutty taste of hemp oil. Just like with humans, be conscious of your pet's weight when determining how much hemp oil to add to your pet's food. A good parameter for oil is 1 tsp. per 10 lbs. of body weight.
How does hemp compare to other food groups like Flax?
- Broader omegas (Omega-3 and Omega-6, including the rare form of GLA)

Hemp seeds are not known to contain allergens. Their hemp food dedicated facility DOES NOT process any dairy, soy, nut or gluten products.
Why are some hemp food batches different shades of green?
At Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils they create their products fresh and to ensure this, they run small batches of the product. Depending on the seed in that batch, the green shade may be slightly darker or lighter. Because their products are Non-GMO (not genetically modified) each seed in each hemp field will be slightly different.
What is the difference between natural and certified organic?
"Certified" Organic denotes products made from seed that has been grown on certified organic land, and produced according to strict uniform standards that are verified by a government-designated organization.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods products do NOT contain any additives, preservatives, fillers or artificial ingredients.
About Manitoba Harvest
Founded in 1998, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods actually started much earlier. Company co-founders aligned with farmers and academics in the early 1990’s to create the Manitoba Hemp Alliance. In 1995, the Alliance successfully secured government permission and funding to plant hemp trials. The experimental trials helped alleviate misconceptions regarding industrial hemp, gained government support, and caught the interest of the trade. By the time the government act forbidding hemp crops was up for renewal in 1998, there was plenty of evidence to support why industrial hemp should be legalized in Canada. Manitoba Harvest was born immediately after industrial hemp was legalized.
The company started small. The focus clear - manufacture the highest quality hemp food products while educating people on the nutritional benefits of hemp foods. Fresh hemp oil and shelled hemp seeds were sold at local retailers and farmer’s markets. Through grassroots marketing, Manitoba Harvest grew and in 2001 was preparing its first shipment to the United States. At the same time the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) began a campaign to make sales of hemp foods illegal in the United States. The Hemp Industries Association (HIA), along with hemp food companies – including Manitoba Harvest, took the DEA to court. Three years later HIA and its allies won. The three year ban and court battle was a major hurdle that slowed, but did not deter Manitoba Harvest’s growth. To support hemp foods launch in the United States, Manitoba Harvest’s CEO hit the road conducting small in-store demos, exhibiting at consumer events and educating anyone who would listen. Today, Manitoba Harvest is the largest vertically integrated hemp food manufacturer in the world.
Manitoba Harvest controls every aspect of the production process. From sourcing crops, to food processing to packaging and distribution, Manitoba Harvest holds itself to the highest operational standards. Manitoba Harvest partners direct with hemp farmers to source the raw, non-genetically modified hemp seed. The pre-screened farmers deliver direct to Manitoba Harvest’s facility, creating a closed-loop sourcing system.

Manitoba Harvest also goes through voluntary audits and certifications to ensure they lead the market in quality assurance.
