I have been doing a lot of research into various hemp-based products. Things like CBD creams for aching muscle pains. But thanks to HempFusion, I have come to see that there are many other uses when combined properly with vitamins and nutrients the body needs.
*Disclaimer: I was sent these products to try and give away in addition to hosting a party through Tryazon. Everything was sent free of charge. All opinion expressed are my own.*
Made from the hemp plant, but not the same as using weed.
My first thoughts when I heard about hemp products were along the lines of it being something created by weed dealers to expand their reach. I mean this seriously. I grew up hearing that weed was nothing but bad for you. Now, however, weed is legal in many states, but it is still a drug. And something I never have, nor ever want to try. That being said, weed plants have more than just a "high" to be gained. There is more to them than a hallucinogen. Studies of the cannabis plant has led to discoveries in something called cannabinoids. These are actually beneficial to the human body. It is what you find in CBD oils and creams that have been helping with my muscular pains for a start.
HempFusion has combined several things that we need for a healthy balance. And they did an amazing job with this blending. Cannabinoids combined with terpenes, healthy omega fats, chlorophyll, and flavanoids. This combination helps to promote the immune system, central nervous system, cardiovascular, as well as the digestive system. Alone, they might help a little. When you combine them all, however, you create a fusion blend that will build each other up and benefit you completely.
Taste and smells of these compounds on their own isn't always pleasant. HempFusion figured out how to make it delicious as well as helpful. There isn't a fishy or oily taste. No unpleasant scent to it either. There was a slight aftertaste that my husband and I figured was from the cannabinoids. We have been working on various recipes that void out that bitter aftertaste. But it isn't really that strong.
Recipes to try out!
Smoothies are a first choice of course. Throw fruit and juice in with some Twist and voila! You have a nutritious snack. Add ice and it becomes a slushie. Some people just add it to water. I didn't want to stop there. I decided to also try the Citrus Ginger flavor in my favorite Korean Beef Meatballs recipe. I just substituted the Twist where it called for straight ginger. Don't take my word for it though. Recipes are below!
HempFusion Fruit Twist Smoothie
2 peaches (we used the equivalent in frozen peaches)
1 banana (use frozen equivalent or cut and freeze one first)
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon Mango Peach Twist
1 teaspoon Stevia
Toss everything into the blender and mix well. So simple! And yet, so delicious. And healthy. Makes about 4 servings.
Korean Beef Meatballs
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soy sauce (I prefer Kikkoman's reduced sodium)
1/4 teaspoon Citrus Ginger Twist
1 heaping spoon minced garlic
10 meatballs (I used frozen ones from the local grocery store)
Put the meatballs in a sauce pan. Mix all other ingredients in a mixing bowl before pouring over the meatballs. Cover and cook on low for a couple hours. Or on medium for about 45 minutes. Stir every once in a while to ensure that they are getting sauced all over. Serve as appetizers, side dish or make it a meal by adding rice. Or do what we did - serve them over ramen noodles (without the ramen seasonings).
So far, the Mango Peach is my favorite. I love making smoothies with dinner. It helps me eat less and fill up on something that is better for me. My next endeavor is to make a key lime pie with the Twist Key Lime flavor.
