Judy Garbutt has dedicated her belief that industrial hemp will be huge in the future by offering High on Health hemp products online and in her new storefront located in Collingwood. Her dream of educating the public about the many useful benefits of hemp has finally come true!
High on Health is a family-owned and operated venture that started in 2011. Founder, Judy Garbutt, has recently opened her storefront doors to the public and is selling amazing ‘Ontario grown’ hemp products that focus on healthy living for people, the planet and pets!
“We believe in using locally sourced resources for ethical, economic and environmental reasons and to further provide our customers with the freshest, most wholesome and beneficial products we offer. We’re confident that you will be impressed,” says Judy.
Where else can you find totally digestible plant protein and the most perfect balance of omega essential fatty acids (EFAs)?
The word is getting out: “Hemp IS Nature’s Best Super-Food” for people, pets, and the planet.
With the growing concern of the state of the environment and increased cancer rates, people are looking for healthier food supplement choices. Judy shares her passion for hemp and all its healing properties in her products available at her new storefront and also for purchase online: http://www.highonhealth.ca/and on High on Health’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HighOnHealthCollingwood.
She is confident that hemp growth and production is on the rise and strongly believes in creating jobs and sharing her passion and dream with her family, grandchildren and future generations to come. “Industrial hemp will be huge and our mission is to raise awareness on the benefits of hemp and to educate the public about the unlimited possibilities of its resources; its natures perfect high protein food source,” explains Judy.
Why is hemp so nutritious?
Hemp seed has been used to treat various disorders for thousands of years in traditional oriental medicine and it contains the most essential fatty acids (EFS’s) of any nut or seed oil, with omega-3 and omega-6 (EFA’s) occurring in the nutritionally optimal 1:3 ratio.
Did you know?
Seventy percent of adults who eat a typical western diet do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids, and at the same time, they get too much omega-6 fatty acids. This imbalance is known to cause a wide range of health problems.
Why hemp for pets?
“They like the nutty flavour,” says Judy. As well, it is important to note that hemp is truly Mother Nature’s favourite and longest-running recipe for people and our beloved pets. High on Health products can aid to alleviate animals from weight troubles and to help lower cholesterol. Remember: hempseed is protein-rich and we need this fuel to keep us feeling satisfied for longer periods of time. The seed gives us the perfect balance of omegas in the oil and helps with proper cell growth! What more could you ask for?
Well, we can’t forget to mention Bo. Who is Bo you ask? Bo is an Australian Labradoodle, mascot, and best friend to High on Health business owner Judy Garbutt. Bo represents Choose Healthy for Pets. He has toured with Judy to countless trade shows and farmers’ markets and is always a show stopper! Drop in to High on Health and say hi to Bo.
High on Health celebrates hemp for all of its amazing resources and features products from companies who have a similar passion to make a difference and will be celebrating their grand opening this month on January 24th from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m.
Judy is also very excited to be part of this year’s X Games in Aspen Colorado which is also held on January 24th, 2013. We all know Judy can only be at one place so join High on Health in celebrating their Grand Opening! There will be a variety of scrumptious hemp treats served so bring along your appetite. As well, the ribbon cutting won’t just be an ordinary ribbon; Judy will be cutting a real hemp rope to celebrate her success!
