About

LeanHemp is comprised of a team of young professionals who bring  years of corporate, small business, and start-up building/branding experience to our team. At our core, LeanHemp is a fitness and nutritional brand that is part of a young, fast-growing, industrial hemp community. Each of us on the LeanHemp team has a strong passion for living a healthy lifestyle and LeanHemp is only going to help build upon that passion!  Our goal is to bring awareness to the benefits of hemp, which is both as an effective protein supplement and nutritious superfood. We firmly believe that we can help grow the organic industrial hemp community while helping other fitness enthusiasts and health nuts, achieve their desired health/fitness goals in a healthy and natural way with LeanHemp protein powder!

LeanHemp is a premium protein powder made from organic ground hemp seeds and mixed with other natural ingredients. We offer LeanHemp in three delicious flavors: Pure Hemp, Hemp Maca & Cacao, and Hemp Maca & Peanut-Butter. LeanHemp is pre-measured into single serving pouches, with a full size pouch containing 20 Grams of protein! No need to measure or deal with bulky containers, just tear it open and pour it into your breakfast smoothie or after-workout shake...YUM!

Perfect for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets, LeanHemp is the ideal nutritional supplement. Our premium protein powder has one of the highest protein contents per serving on the market and it's full of natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that may boost your immune system and increase your energy levels. Furthermore, many claim that hemp protein helps boost your metabolic rate too! Hemp is also an excellent source of essential fatty acids (EFA) including Omega 3, 6, SDA and GLA. Studies have shown that increased consumption of EFAs has led to lower blood LDL cholesterol levels. But don't just take our word for it, there are a lot of online resources that attest to the nutritional properties of gluten and dairy free protein found in industrial hemp!

LeanHemp is a 100% plant-based, vegan, gluten free protein. It is HIGHLY digestible unlike the majority of protein powders on the market that are derived from whey (which typically comes from low quality milk). LeanHemp premium protein will never leave you feeling bloated, sluggish, or cause other stomach issues that typically accompany standard off-the-shelf protein powders. Hemp is great for anyone who is lactose intolerant and/or vegan because it contains NO dairy, and is a well-balanced source of protein for your daily nutritional needs.

It is CORRECT to call hemp "a weed" because it can grow nearly anywhere without the need for pesticides and herbicides. On the other hand, it is INCORRECT to call hemp "weed" because it will not get you high. Unlike marijuana, hemp contains less than 0.3% THC. More importantly, unlike marijuana, hemp is legal. This was confirmed in 2003 by the case HIA v DEA which states “hemp foods are exempt from control in the Controlled Substances Act." Last, but certainly not least, it is not a product that will increase your chances of testing positive for THC (from marijuana). So try it, love it, and get some more of it!

During WWII, when my grandmother's village in Russia was occupied by Nazis, there was little food available to eat. She would walk out into nearby fields with her sister to pick the seeds of what she remembers were on a "large strong plant" to keep their stomachs full. Only later did she realize these were actually industrial hemp seeds! The hemp stocks were likely planted to make rope and textiles (yet another great use for the plant). Little did she know, one day she would have a grandson that would join the effort to promote such a remarkably beneficial superfood to the masses. Some things just seem to run in the family.

Staying true to our mission of providing quality products, promoting other small businesses, and investing in the "green" living community are not easy tasks. With such a young industry, Organic Industrial Hemp can be an expensive ingredient that's hard to come by. Also, the eco-friendly packaging that complements our product's integrity will be an increased cost as we grow. As with any consumable product, we anticipate working through the associated regulatory requirements which we are prepared to meet. Most other aspects of scaling up are not so much challenges, but opportunities. These will be opportunities for us to leverage our diverse and relevant work experience, as our team is seasoned in automating production processes, logistics, and increasing market reach to millions of people worldwide. We are ready to deliver on our commitment to LeanHemp.

When we started LeanHemp in October of 2014, we quickly realized how much effort and capital this endeavor would take in order to achieve the quality product and company brand that our customers deserve. With your generous support, we can make key upfront business investments to deliver the highest quality hemp fitness products at the very best price. We will use the funds to scale up, which means acquiring commercial equipment, kitchen space and the ability to buy our natural, delicious ingredients in bulk.
