From the Seed to the Table

Hempzel's™ debute

Three dudes, Ralph Amator R.I.P. CEO of No Problem Inc. with Mark Tucci of RYO Fame & Muse Don Riese did it first. They where involved with hemp textiles working with Ian in Jamaica to hand batik cloth that they would turn into clothes - some custom made to spec by local seamstresses. They stumbled on hemp seed meal and at Uncle Don's kitchen in York his wife produced the first batch of hemp pretzels made with hemp seed meal, over the years the recipe has changed, the operation has expanded and a network has been built one customer and associate at a time. Enjoy this time line, an organic deep rooted venture. 

Fast forward to 2021 and everything is changing but our mission is still the same, contract with our farmers, work with our partners, expand the network, develop more applications for True Cannabis Hemp whether agricultural / industrial or medicinal. We recognize & respect the whole plant.
