    I had one of the best weekends of my life at Hempen’s hemp fair and I can’t wait to share my incredible experience with you all. This event was a true celebration of community, where people from all walks of life came together to celebrate the power of one remarkable crop: hemp! What I loved most about this gathering was the genuine sense of unity and togetherness experienced throughout the entire weekend. It was incredibly heartwarming to witness a community so passionately brought together by their shared love for hemp. From the moment I arrived, I felt like I was a part of something truly special.

    The educational aspect of the fair was equally impressive. Knowledge sharing was at the heart of the event, and I learned so much about the many uses and benefits of hemp. Hempen had put together a fantastic lineup of speakers and workshops that left me feeling not only entertained but also much more informed.
    Hempen’s hemp fair prioritised the health and happiness of its attendees. From yoga sessions in the serene countryside to breathe workshops, there were plenty of opportunities to nourish both the body and the soul.

    And let’s not forget about the food and fun! The fair was filled with laughter, music, and a fantastic ramshackle band that had everyone dancing the night away. It was a reminder of how important it is to celebrate life with like-minded individuals. It was an unforgettable experience that left me eagerly anticipating next year’s event. It was a beautiful celebration of community, authenticity, education, wellbeing, and pure fun. I can’t thank Hempen enough for creating such a magical weekend, and I wholeheartedly recommend anyone to attend the fair in the future. It’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss!

    Phenomenal time at Hempen’s hemp fair! The event brought together a wonderful community unified by their love for hemp. The products were both organic, and authentic, a rarity in today’s world. The fair was educational, with insightful knowledge sharing and interesting workshops, promoting well-being, creativity and the natural world. The ramshackle band had us dancing all night. I’m eagerly looking forward to next year’s fair. It was a unique experience celebrating the power of hemp and being part of such a vibrant and passionate community. Don’t miss out on this incredible event!

    “I stumbled upon Hempen Organic nearly a year ago, right when I began using their amazing organic CBD oils to alleviate my anxiety. As a newcomer to the UK, navigating the challenges of establishing a life in a culturally distinct country, I initially felt incredibly fortunate to discover a local organic CBD provider to assist me. Little did I know, the advantages would far exceed the mere use of their products. I can say with utmost sincerity that Hempen Organic has truly been a life-altering experience for me here in England. Hempen Organic isn’t just about bolstering health through their offerings; they’re a community deeply devoted to enhancing the well-being of both people and the land. Since May of last year, I’ve had the privilege of volunteering with them, and little by little becoming a part of their community. Witnessing the potency of building a robust hemp-centric community, cultivated with such ethical and regenerative practices, has been nothing short of extraordinary. For me, it’s a genuine antidote to social isolation, a platform for skill-sharing, an empowerment hub for the local community, and a means to draw closer to nature, which infuses my life with purpose and meaning. I’m truly touched by the incredible work these people have been doing, and I hope my words can do justice to the depth of my gratitude. If you haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know them yet, I urge you not to miss out on this opportunity to witness their extraordinary efforts firsthand.”

    Bless,

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of 100+ Cannabinoid compounds present in each hemp plant. There are over 400+ compounds found in hemp plant varieties. CBD Oils have become so excited as they contain a lot of valuable nutrients. Full & Broad Spectrum CBD Oils mean you are gaining all the valuable compounds present and not just isolated CBD.

 

Recent studies have shown that Cannabinoids are naturally created by the human body, we even create CBD, working in harmony with our own internal Endocannabinoid System, close to our Immune and Nervous Systems. In fact, all mammals have an Endocannabinoid System. The function of the Endocannabinoid System is to bring the body into balance, officially called Homeostasis, as it acts as a cell-communication system all over the body. CBD works with our Endocannabinoid System, particularly supporting our stress responses, which are overly stimulated daily. This science is proving why lots of people use plant based CBD strong products to aid overall wellbeing and calming effects. 

 

Plants are here to support us when we need them. CBD products provide a natural and harmonious plant top-up to aid your mind and body, helping your Endocannabinoid System to function well.

 

You can find out more information about CBD here.

What can I use CBD for?

CBD rich products are soothing for the mind, heart, and body, bringing a sense of peace to your daily stress responses.

 

As herbalists, we cannot provide medical advice. Our CBD products promote health, stimulate your own healing, and we can consult when contacted via email at shop@hempen.co.uk or call us O1184 O5OO95.

 

CBD rich products are sold as ‘cosmetics’ and ‘food supplements’ we are restricted by not being able to give any medical advice regarding Cannabinoid benefits. There are many peer-reviewed studies into the myriad of benefits, this includes anxiety, inflammation, and epilepsy – though more research is needed. We recommend doing your own research online, we share some light on what CBD is here.

Do hemp products contain THC? Will it get me high?

Simply put, hemp is a variety of the Cannabis plant that has been bred to have negligible low levels of THC, which is short for Tetrahydrocannabinol, the more psychoactive compound. Hemp cannot get you high.

 

Instead, CBD products made from hemp promote other natural beneficial compounds such as Cannabinoids, one being CBD, that are really good for your health. The flower is pressed or extracted into a valuable CBD rich oil with immunity boosting, and calming properties to name but a few. We also mill the stem into a relaxing tea.

 

Hemp products made from the seeds such as the Whole Hemp Seeds, Hemp Protein Powder and Hemp Oil contain hardly any, trace amounts, of Cannabinoids, however are a superfood in their own right. The mighty seeds contain all the essential amino acids your body needs and does not produce! 

 

UK regulations permit only strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant that are very low in THC (less than 0.01% in products). This means you won’t feel any psychoactive effects, so that means none of our products will get you ‘high’. All our CBD products are independently lab tested to ensure the finest quality and to meet government regulations.

How are Hempen products made?

Hempen is a not-for-profit worker’s co-operative. Our profits are reinvested in our mission, not shareholder pockets, we are led by and owned by our workers.

 

We consult and partner with farmers across the British Isles to increase the cultivation of hemp. Based on the Hardwick Estate, our farm is part laboratory, part community, part homestead, part educational space, part wellbeing hub that continues to evolve and inspire. Nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Oxfordshire, check out our Hempen Events to visit!

 

Our worker’s co-op produce and innovate organic products from hemp cosmetics and hemp based superfoods, on organic farmland certified by the Soil Association. 

 

Having control over the end-to-end process, from seed to shelf, means we can guarantee unparalleled quality of our products. They’ll always be produced from 100% organic hemp, non-GMO, free of harmful chemicals, heavy metals and synthetic cannabinoids, supporting UK & British Isles farmers.

Are your hemp and CBD products organic, vegan and/or gluten free?

Yes, yes and yes!

All of our food products are certified organic by the Soil Association. We believe food should be organic and nutritious, especially if you’re seeking products to improve your health.

 

Hemp is naturally vegan, we are a vegan brand, so all our products are too. In fact, hemp seeds and hemp oil are packed with essential fatty acids including the ‘golden ratio’ of omega 3,6 & 9 great for brain health, it’s the alternative to consuming fish! We use Hemp Seed Oil in all our CBD products. Hemp Seeds, are also a full protein. As we see it, the growth of hemp supports the growth of the vegan movement.

 

Hemp naturally does not contain gluten, therefore our products are gluten-free! The combine machinery is shared with other plant crops, even though it is cleaned we cannot guarantee use for coeliacs.

Can I come and see your farm?

Absolutely. We welcome volunteers all year round for anything from a day visit to one week with accommodation. Take a look at our volunteering page for more information, and to apply. Please note, we work Monday-Friday. Also check our Hempen Events for a visit!
