Local Hot Sauce Company's Mission Is Awakening the World to Hemp's Benefits

Established in 2016, the Gourmet Hemp Foods LLC founders were first activists in the halls of Virginia's General Assembly meeting with their state representatives advocating for the legalization of industrial hemp (the non-psychoactive cannabis cousin of marijuana). Once American farmers could legally grow hemp again, the #GHFoods team was one of the first companies in the nation to create both a Hempasta and hemp-based sauces condiments utilizing domestic grown and crushed hemp seeds.

From the onset, the reception of their four staple products has been tremendous: Linguine Hempasta, Fusilli Hempasta, Hemp Hottie Sauce & Hemp Honey BBQ Sauce.

Due to the unique social outcome of merging the hemp and foodie worlds, the Gourmet Hemp Foods team takes its mission of 'Awakening the World to Hemp's Benefits' seriously. Whether it's working with nonprofits, universities, or industry professionals, they continuously strive to build strong relationships within both the hemp and farm-to-table communities and beyond!
