Company History Hempzel's HiSTORY - Twisted

The company was originally called No Problem Inc, started in the mid-nineties by Ralph Amato along with participating friends Mark Tucci & Don "Uncle" Riese. Ralph was bringing in hemp textiles and having the sewn custom made into wedding dresses or whatever a customer might want. They started having a Jamaican artist do Batik artwork on hemp canvas but the creation came about over the use of hemp seed meal and incorporating it into a pretzel...

Ralph and friends were aware of hemps nutritional value.....hemp seed meal mixed into a traditional sourdough pretzel mix made by a small bakery in the snack food capital of the world & viola Hempzels...

Our 10th year and I think the last years we've sown a lot of seeds that have taken root. Saturday Senator Folmer (R) and Senator Schwank(D) both presented SB50 the Pennsylvania Industrial Farm Bill Act - taking the Federal Governments persmission to get pilot programs into the States who want to see where hemp fills in. Both Senators stopped by the booth to show their constituents and Pennsylvania Citizens what we have to look forward to as the laws prohibiting hemp farming are repealed.

thanks to both this is a Bi-Partisan Effort
 Sunday or

 

Monday our good friends at WEEE radio Mike interviewed Shawn for an update on what's been going on - a lot of folks heard the interview and came down to get Hempzelized at our booth 5000-1 in the Pennsylvania Market Place.

This year we no longer had the Pepsi fridge but that kept me to 2 booths vs 3 to show folks what we had to offer.

We officially had our Hempzels(tm) Soft 8 Pack Pretzel Bags finished the day before the show started - the bakery baked the freshly baked hemp swirls and we loaded up the freezer & sampled and sold a few 3 pack hot soft Swirls & a good amount of frozen swirls got taken home. Hempzel Customer Missions ? ask their local stores to pick up the product. (pictures) (videos)

Folks I hope this information presented helps you understand a little bit more about a crop that hasn't been taught in our public school much. It does not contain every fact & does stress the Hempzels history from the late 1990's until now. This time line will continue to be updated & eventually formatted so you can print it out easily - be patient. You can see for yourself what this amazing plant has gone through and how politics corrupted our understanding growing up and reduced our civil liberties. The real confusion started in the early 1930's with the Federal Government referring  to cannabis whether sativa, indica, rudelis  in racial,  derogatory slang terms "marijuana". Prior to that the Federal Government & USDA had hemp listed in the farm yearbooks as any other needed crop. Cannabis was medicine or recreation & hemp was industrial and the hearty crop that produced fiber, seed & oil for a growing free nation. So start saying "know" right now & verify this information for yourself. - Contact your local congressional representative to Co-Sponsor andy   "Industrial Farming Act "....     Thank You!

 With a team rich in knowledge, please contact us if you need a speaker for your next event.

    My journey started pre 1992 as one of my libertarian friends would remind me. Thanks to people like Jack Heror who wrote the ground breaking book "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" - he inspired me to dig deeper into the complexity of Cannabis Hemp. Local Hemp Historian & collegue Les Stark did further regional and local history and his work helped others who I would talk to like Senator Folmer, Congressman Sam Rohrer, Senator Daylon Leach and others who stopped by my booth at the Pennsylvania Farm Show since 2005 - Thousands of knowledge seeds have been sown and many have taken root - your work individually is helping to right a wrong in Cannabis classification and scorn. In a complicated world we can do things simply again with less environmental impact as we've done through single sourcing of energy vs empowering the farmers for renewables.
