Let Our Farmers Grow Hemp!

Back in the day before America was misled into believing a whole slew of lies, the good old U.S.A. was a worldwide center of hemp production. Beautiful fields of this incredibly useful crop were cultivated all over the country. 

Right before prohibition went into effect in the U.S., two articles about hemp appeared in major U.S. magazines. 

From: Mechanical Engineering, February 26, 1937
It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world. 

"New Billion Dollar Crop" From: Popular Mechanics, February 1938
 It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars.

In the 1930's, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial revolution when applied to hemp. This single resource could have created millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great Depression.

William Randolph Hearst and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst's grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions of dollars because of hemp.

In 1937, Dupont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. Dupont's Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80% of Dupont's business. 

I think most of us would agree.....Hemp is a superior resource making it the ultimate cash crop, producing more fiber, food and oil than any other plant on this planet!

One acre of Hemp produces:

8,000 pounds of Hemp seed per acre. When cold-pressed, the 8,000 pounds of hemp seed yield over 300 gallons of hemp seed oil and a byproduct of
6,000 pounds of high protein hemp flour.

These seed oils are both a food and a biodiesel fuel. Currently, the most productive seed oil crops are soybeans, sunflower seeds and rape seed or canola. Each of these three seed oil crops produce between 100 to 120 gallons of oil per acre. Hemp seed produces three times more oil per acre than the next most productive seed oil crops, or over 300 gallons per acre, with a byproduct of 3 tons of food per acre. Hemp seed oil is also far more nutritious and beneficial for our health than any other seed oil crop.

In addition to the food and oil produced, there are several other byproducts and benefits to the cultivation of Hemp.

Six to ten tons per acre of hemp bast fiber. Bast fiber makes canvas, rope, lace, linen, and ultra-thin specialty papers like cigarette and bible papers.

Twenty-five tons of hemp hurd fiber. Hemp hurd fiber makes all grades of paper, composite building materials, animal bedding and a material for the absorption of liquids and oils.

The deep tap root draws up sub-soil nutrients and then, when the leaves fall from the plant to the ground, they return these nutrients to the top soil for the next crop rotation.

The residual flowers, after the seeds are extracted, produce many valuable medicines.

Our farmers need this valuable crop to be returned as an option for commercial agriculture.

Hemp has been considered to be the plant that started humans down the road toward civilization with the invention of agriculture itself. All archaeologists agree that Hemp was among the first crops purposely cultivated by human beings at least over 6,000 years ago, and maybe even more than 12,000 years ago.

Restoring industrial Hemp to its rightful place in agriculture today will return much control to our farmers, and away from the multinational corporations that dominate our political process and destroy our environment. These capital-intensive, non-sustainable, and environmentally destructive industries have selfishly destroyed our economic resources particularly the world's forests, caused massive oil spills, wars, toxic waste, massive worldwide pollution, global warming and the destruction of entire ecosystems all around the world.

It's time we STOP THE MADNESS and catch up with other countries around the world!

PORTUGAL, THAILAND and many more!

If the U.S. does not legalize hemp for commercial use, a significant economic and environmental opportunity will continue to be lost and the benefits will only be reaped by our economic competitors.

Although we consider the majority of them friends and have nothing but respect for countries like Canada; where we import our seed from to be able to provide Versativa Hemp Products, we as citizens of America have got to come together and take a stand for what is our god given right to be able to provide and opportunity for each other and future generations to come!

Until next time friends, Thanks for taking a minute to stop by and supporting the movementWe're always glad to connect with like-minded people and even more glad to continue our mission of.........H.elping E.ducate M.isinformed P.eople. 

If you're as passionate as we are about Hemp, then we encourage you to consider connecting with us and thousands of other like-minded people in the Versativa Movement.

The Versativa brand is quite possibly the biggest eco-solution of our time. It’s bigger than all of us and will never manifest in one broad stroke. Versativa is our trademark name for Hemp which specializes in High-Quality Hemp Nutrional Products and to distinguish it for what it is, not for what it was wrongfully made out to be. Once before in American history Hemp saved our economy and it is now making its profound comeback through millions of  people like you and I.

Proprietary Hemp Formula Helps Prevent The Flu

The worst flu season in recent memory has led many states across America to declare a public health emergency and has coincided with outbreaks of other nasty illnesses around the country. 

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) says that 47 states are experiencing widespread flu activity, and the agency estimates 128 million doses of the flu vaccine have been administered this month, which constitutes 95 percent of the estimated 135 million doses manufacturers planned to make this year. To make it worse, medical advisers are stating that this virus can last up to 10 weeks.

Not the way many people wanted to start off this new year. The good news is there are ways to protect yourself naturally.


The key factor in the prevention of colds and flu is overall Cellular Health.

The balance of essential fatty acids paired with the complete protein found in hemp seed promotes cellular recovery and development.

Larken Bunce, an educator and clinical herbalist, states:

“Hemp’s unique fatty acid composition and balance can have significant impact on inflammatory processes and cell membrane activities, which are the foundation of numerous chronic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, cancers, neurodegenerative disorders, hypersensitivities and auto-immune conditions.”

The high concentration of essential fatty acids found in hemp seeds also supports the transportation of oxygen to cells throughout the body. The presence of oxygen in cell membranes helps to block viruses, fungi and bacteria in the body.

Another major component of a cells defense is the cell membrane. Cell membranes are the gateway to a cell where nutrients move in and waste moves out. The cell membrane is also the protective envelope that is designed to identify invading bacteria and viruses for elimination.

There are two absolutely necessary structural components of all cell membranes. These are the omega 3 essential fatty acids, called EPA and DHA. These two fatty acids cannot be made by the human body and must be consumed. Without them cells do not function properly and are susceptible to invasion by many viruses like the flu.

In early 2011 Versativa developed a product called Inspirin that’s key component in their proprietary EFA blend is hulled hemp seed.

Inspirin is an amazing and completely unique product that combines some of the most beneficial materials found in nature.

There are thousands of testimonies of improved health from consuming Inspirin and it's really no wonder when factoring in the list of ingredients that cannot be found in any other convenient single-serving Whole Food Delivery!

Hemp seed is said to be the most nutritionally complete food source in the world. It is nature’s perfect high protein food. Nowhere else in nature can someone get a more complete protein source from one place. Hemp seed is gluten free. Hemp protein contains all 20 known amino acids including the 8 essential and 2 semi-essential amino acids. The protein in hemp seed is comprised of approximately 65% of Edestin, which aids digestion, is low in phosphorus, and is considered the backbone of human cellular DNA. Hemp seed is an excellent source of essential fatty acids, calcium, and iron.

Marine Phytoplankton is known as the first food, the best food, and the base of the food chain.  We know that many whales live on Marine Phytoplankton.  Marine Phytoplankton consists of a unique and complete composition that gives the body virtually all of the raw materials it needs, in one single source. Marine Phytoplankton produces healthy new cells and nero-chemicals for the body and the brain. Marine Phytoplankton has been called the ideal food for mankind. Eating primary producers (like Marine Phytoplankton) transfers more energy and nutrients directly to your body. Marine Phytoplankton has an alkaline pH which is ideal for combating the disease producing effects of acidity (Cancer grows in an acidic environment). 

• Black Raspberry SEED / Essential OIL 
Black Raspberry seed oil contains 85% essential fatty acids of which 30% are Omega 3. Black Raspberry Seed Oil is one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, including both tocopherols and tocotrienols. Tocopherols are primarily the gamma and alphatocopherol type which are superior free radical scavengers.  The oil of black raspberry seeds supports a healthy immune system and has antiinflammatory and anti-microbial properties. • Black raspberry seed oil is low in saturated fat.

 • D-Ribose 
 D-ribose is a simple, five-carbon sugar that is found naturally in the human body. D-ribose has been used to improve symptoms of chronic fatiguesyndrome, fibromyalgia, and coronary artery disease. The body recognizes that d-ribose is different from other sugars and preserves it for the creating the energy molecules that power our hearts, muscles, brains, and every other tissue in the body. D-ribose has been used to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness after exercise. D-ribose has been used to improve athletic performance.

 • Resveratrol 
Resveratrol is a naturally occurring phytoalexin found in grape skins, berries, and other plants.  It is anti-infective, contains antioxidants, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Resveratrol can fight cancer initiation, promotion, and progression by blocking free radicals. Resveratrol is said to have weight loss effects, mimicking the benefits of a calorie-restricted diet. Resveratrol may help lower cholesterol. Resveratrol can act as an anti-aging assistant. Resveratrol helps support brain function. It also protects the heart and increases athletic endurance. Resveratrol can reduce the incidence of skin cancer and rejuvenate connective tissues. 

The beneficial properties of the blackberry have been recognized as early as Ancient Greece. Blackberries are especially beneficial for women, due to their high concentrations of phytoestrogens. The blackberry is high in fiber and vitamin C. Blackberries are considered to be an astringent.  Blackberries are high inantioxidants.

 • Malic acid 
Malic acid is a natural substance that is commonly found in plants and is also produced naturally in the body.  Malic acid is used to treat individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.  Malic Acid reduces bacteria in the mouth, which promotes healthier teeth and gums. Malic acid promotes softer, firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin. Malic acid is most popularly known for its affect on metabolism and energy production. 

Raspberries are high in Elagic acid. Elagic acid can help to boost the immune system by combating bad bacteria and killing viruses.  Elagic acid contains anti-cancer properties and can slow tumor growth. Elagic acid is a powerful anti-oxidant. Elagic acid improves skin elasticity, which reduces the effects of aging and speeds the healing of wounds. Elagic acid reduces inflammation.

Black cumin seed has been used for centuries to promote health and fight disease.  Black cumin seed has been revered as a medicinal herb for over 3000 years. Medical studies around the world have shown that black cumin seed has immune strengthening, anti-histamine, antitumor, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties. The oil found in black cumin seed is exceptionally high in antioxidants.  Black cumin seed oil is primarily composed of more than 80% unsaturated fatty acids. 

• Magnesium Malate 
Magnesium malate may have an effect in reducing the pain of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  It has been documented that most diabetics have low levels of Magnesium malate. Taking it can improve insulin production. Magnesium is an essential mineral that the body requires for muscle relaxation. It has been shown to be very useful in all types of headaches and migraines. Magnesium malate has the ability remove toxic metals from the blood stream that would otherwise cause harm to the body.
