The more people who have hemp in their lives, the better
We can still recall that lightbulb moment…
One day back in 1998, our founders Henry and Glyn were strolling through their farm in Devon when they stopped to try a hemp seed. They were blown away by its flavour – a bit like a cross between a sunflower seed and a pine nut – and even more surprised to learn of its nutritional value. What if they could make hemp a kitchen staple across the world?
What started as our original Good Hemp Oil quickly became a family of foods made from hemp. We’re building a community of people as excited about this seed as we are. That means you guys – who take us to your coffee mornings, pack us in your gym bag or chat about our environmental impact over brunch. Thanks for helping us spread the word.
Alongside their work in the film industry, Henry and Glyn have been innovating in the world of hemp for over 20 years. They’re still as excited about its positive impact as ever.
Everyone has something that works for them. Sprint, jog or walk the dog
We’ll always be open and honest about where we’re going
There’s no specific type or condition for being part of our community
“A history graduate from Surrey, Glynis Murray is the co-founder of Braham & Murray, owners of Good, a hemp food company that produces everything from protein powder and oils to hemp drink. Hemp protein is free from allergens and genetically modified organisms: it's a very pure and functional food source.”
“One of the primary benefits of hemp drink is that it has a higher omega-3 content compared to milk made from most other nuts and seeds. Omega-3 fats can be beneficial for our heart, cholesterol levels and our skin. Hemp seeds are also a great source of magnesium – a mineral that has many vital roles in our body, including making energy from our food, and supporting our bones.”
“The Good Oil story would not have happened 10 years ago, even five. In a way it's the result of several 21st-century trends. First, a farming industry in crisis, forced to find different ways to make money… Secondly, a savvy generation of consumers who know their hemp from their hash and are not alarmed by new ingredients. And finally, supermarkets that have realised consumers want to eat food that tastes good and is healthy.”
“Since I was a wee one I’ve never been a milk fan, I always had my cereal dry so I’ve been so happy that you can find milk alternatives in every supermarket. My latest fav is Hemp Drink, if you haven’t tried it you must! It has this amazing, subtle, nutty taste and is packed full of omega-3. Hemp isn’t just tasty, it also has a great story behind it. It’s an amazingly sustainable crop that’s environmentally friendly and is super versatile.”
