PASSIONATE ABOUT HEALTH
We are leading the mission on educating kiwis about the health benefits derived from hemp so together we can free our families from physical and mental barriers by providing the highest quality hemp products.
We are a couple of kiwi mum's who believe there is a better way to keep our families healthy, and the answers are found in nature.
We are passionate about sharing what may be the most important system of physiology in the body: the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
The ECS was discovered in mid-1990 by researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam. It was found that the ECS is an integral part of our physiologies responsible for maintaining order and balance across all other systems of the body from the circulatory, digestive and reproductive, to the nervous system.
What started out as a dinner between friends became the seeds from which NZ Hempress was born. Our passion for supporting mothers stems from the health transformation we each had after becoming mothers ourselves. When speaking with the formulator of this beautiful elixir we were most taken by his obvious commitment and powerful purpose for his contribution to health. As our dinner, and future dinners progressed it became apparent that based on recent research from the plant that it is derived, there may be more to hemp oil than meets the eye. After learning about and experiencing this herb for ourselves and our families, we knew we had to share it with others. Now this passion has become our mission.
We’re on a mission to educate New Zealanders about our ECS (Endo-Cannabinoid System). It's critical for optimising our health and well being. We advocate supporting our ECS with a full spectrum of non-psychoactive phyto-plant nutrients, essential fatty acids, proteins, terpenes and a range of other beautiful compounds from the hemp plant that can't get you “high” as a dietary supplement. At NZ Hempress, we believe it’s a human right to extensively benefit from the natural goodness and resourcefulness of the hemp plant. However, current New Zealand legislation limits cannabinoids to non-therapeutic levels in all hemp products sold for human consumption, so until that changes we'll only use parts of the plant that NZ legislation does allow and maximise the goodness there. Don't worry, we've got you covered. And, as soon as; and if that changes! We'll be changing right with it.
We believe that making non-psychoactive hemp products available to New Zealanders can lead to better health outcomes for our country by reducing health costs through a more sensible cost-effective natural health alternative. There is great potential in our natural habitat, beautiful and God-given natural herbs capable of changing lives and bringing about all-round health reformation. These natural gifts surrounding us if explored and utilised well can break records and make history, keeping us steps ahead of others in the health sector. We are both proud and humbled by the numerous good that can be done through the plants, herbs, roots, fungi, and the very soil that our ancestors have used for thousands of years. We are a couple of kiwi mum's that believe mothers of all kinds should have access to the highest quality, organic & homegrown hemp products for their families. This is just the beginning of something iconic and we’d be honored if you join us in making history.
