"HEMP DAY" at Roger Gussiaas Farm

Roger and Nurgul hosted a "Hemp Day" at their farm in Carrington on Wednesday, May 17, 2017.  It was quite an educational experience, learning how they process hemp and change it into many useful products.  Judging from the many attendees, the day was a great success.

Many interesting people... involved in hemp education, technology, production and use... gathered to discuss and exchange their information and products.  Of particular interest was Rick Trojan and persons who accompanied him on his Hemp Road Trip:  D.J. Nicke (Co-Founder of Cannapedia; Michael Carmany {from Industrial Hemp Research Foundation); and others.

This group is traveling around the country "to raise awareness of hemp through a nationwide grassroots campaign, educating citizenry, gather commitments to cosponsors Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015, influence state senators and representatives, promote domestic hemp businesses, educate farmers on the benefits of planting hemp and to document nationwide campaign."

Did you know that hemp is classified as a complete protein?  It has all the essential amino acids that are necessary for the good health of the human body.  One of the products that the Gussiaas family manufactures is a hemp meal which can be placed in any food to make it a complete protein.  It is good in shakes, smoothies, cereals, etc.

As well, Gussiaas also produces hemp oil which is rich in Omega 3-6 essential fatty acids.  Many people are beginning to realize the importance of these Omega-3-rich oils for the good health of their immune systems.

And, just think!  These wonderful, health-giving products are manufactured right here in the Carrington area!   Please contact Gussiaas for more information about his business and how you can attain the products that he manufactures and ships around the world.  Phone 701-652-3078.
