Hempzels @ 1-800-USE-HEMP in the USA

Hemp Seed

  • May 2018 we'll see the first research planting in Lancaster County Pennsylvania - only 20 years - more pictures to come.

     

    1997 was the first time in the news & here with a real grass roots effort from many different activist and Citizens viable hemp seed was planted for research - 5 acre plots - 13 planted throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I had the honor of seeing it in person and pre planting at Rhodale Institute. 

    Thanks to especially Senator Folmer for perserving, Senator Judi Schwank - Representative Russ Diamond and many others in the Dept of Agriculture for maintaining common sense - no 10 ft high barb wire fences. Pennsylvania still has a State Store Mentality but people are voicing their opinion and using their voting power to make this happen sooner than later. Self cultivation rights must be restored to individuals to keep in check the greed factor when it comes to control of people and plants.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Shawn House stands at the bottom of the Pennsylvania Capitol steps with a smile on his face and an empty bag of pretzels in his hands. "Hempzel's Pretzels," he says. "It's a mix of hemp and pretzels." It's also completely legal. House, who runs the Lancaster Trading Company and it's Hempzel's Pretzels brand, uses industrial hemp in his products every day. The hemp he uses comes from the same cannabis species as the more familiar drug, and the plant it grows from looks similar to the drug, but it contains minimal doses of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the substance which leads to the high marijuana smokers feel. "Knowledge is powerful," Shawn says. "Just because you have seed, doesn't mean you have weed."

  • Sesame Sourdough Hempzel Labels
    WE have temporarily stopped production of the Sesame Hempzel Pretzels. since Feb. 2016. 
     
    Our Origional Sourdough hand made pretzels with hemp flour and the addition of Sesame. In 1999 this pretzel was awarded 2nd place out of 30 pretzel submissions by Food Distribution magazine, Baco Rotan Florida. 1st place? A chocolate covered pretzel stick from Ohio. When we've chocolate coated Hempzels they too are even tastier.
    Hempzel Pretzels are baked in 100lb batches, we will be working on having a bake module to show you bake dates, fresh is best.
    8oz and sometime 1.5lb bulk boxes depending on production.
    Hemp pretzels are one way of using hemp flour, or hemp seed into traditional food products. Our goal is to contract with our local farmers for hemp seed, hemp flour and hemp oil. Our new soft hemp pretzel swirls have more hemp due to the fact of being baked & frozen to retain integrity and increase shelf life and freshness.
