Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. began as a small, private company when co-Founders J. Craig Goodwin and Bryan Carson stumbled upon the immense opportunity of hemp. In addition to being all natural, allergen-free, environmentally conscious and cost effective, hemp boasts high protein content, a perfect balance of Omega 3-6-9, minerals, fibre and more. The potential value of hemp for medicinal purposes is virtually undiscovered. It is known to provide relief from symptoms such as anxiety, stress, and seizures, and has been used to treat epilepsy, convulsions and inflammation.
Naturally Splendid is a biotechnology and consumer products company that is developing, producing, commercializing, and licensing an entirely new generation of plant-derived, bioactive ingredients, nutrient dense foods, and related products. Naturally Splendid is building an expanding portfolio of patents (issued and pending) and proprietary intellectual property focused on the commercial uses of industrial hemp and non-psychoactive cannabinoid compounds in a broad spectrum of applications.
Naturally Splendid currently has four innovative divisions:
(1) BIOTECHNOLOGY – Focused on three major platforms:
(2) Proprietary HempOmega™ encapsulation
(3) Extraction and formulation with Cannabidiol (CBD)
(4) Hemp and plant-based proteins.
Organic & Conventional - HEMP PROCESSING
HEMP SEED HEARTS
Hemp Seed hearts are made by removing the hard outer shell of the hemp seed exposing the fantastically nutritious inner nut (or heart) of the hemp seed. This inner heart contains 33% easily digestible protein and a balanced ratio of Omegas 3 & 6 as recommended by the World Health Organization.
Hemp oil is made by cold pressing whole hemp seeds to extract the oil. No heat is used during our process. Hemp Oil is used in a variety of applications. It may be consumed as a dietary supplement, used in a wide range of recipes to replace other oils, may be used in cosmetics, and in many other commercial applications.
HEMP PROTEIN POWDER
Hemp protein powder is made from the seedcake that is produced when cold pressing the seed for hemp oil. This seed cake is further refined into a number of different qualities of protein powder that are applicable to different markets. We can produce, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% protein powders very easily. We also have the capability to produce as high as an 85% hemp protein isolate when certain volume requirements are met.
