The many health benefits of hemp are becoming more and more widely known. Kama Hemp produces the only organic hemp juice grown in Europe, so we were thrilled to speak with the company’s co-founder Kate Mullaney for our Winter 2019/20 issue. Read on to learn all about Kama Hemp’s philosophy.
Juices with power
by Aisling Cronin
Kate Mullaney is the co-founder of Kema Hemp, a company that produces the only organic hemp juice grown in Europe. Kama Hemp juice is a pure green drink with amazing health benefits: a glass of the juice contains more omega oils than salmon, more potassium than a banana, more magnesium than spinach and more calcium than a glass of milk! It is the only food available that contains naturally occurring CBD (cannabidiol). ‘We always place great emphasis on the bioavailability of the CBD in our juices,’ Kate explained during a recent conversation we had, ‘which means that the nutrient is easily absorbed by the body. This is a key distinction we make, as there are other CBD products out there in which the nutrient isn’t readily available.’
Kama’s hemp is grown organically, under the sun, wind and rain, on the Mullaney family farm in Co. Monaghan. They harvest and juice their crop at the very peak of its growing season, to ensure that its nutrition is at its peak. Kama Hemp’s juice and powders are defined as ‘functional’ foods: that is, foods that have a potentially positive effect on health, beyond basic nutrition. Functional foods promote optimal health and reduce the risk of disease.
Kama Hemp is a passionate promoter of improving health by nutritional means. ‘I love hearing the stories of people whose health has noticeably improved after using our products,’ Kate shared with me, ‘though of course, a solid foundation of good diet and exercise is necessary too.’
