Natural Hemphasis

Natural Hemphasis is the R&D arm of Natural Emphasis, Ltd. focusing on growing the North American Hemp Industry. We believe that hemp represents a great opportunity for North Americans to pursue a path of economic development that is both economically and environmentally sustainable and contributes to a higher quality of life for all while helping repair some of the damage we have subjected the planet to.

We have been actively involved in researching hemp, disseminating information and challenging common misconceptions about Industrial Hemp since 1994. Over 22 years and still going strong.

Clients and partners have included the Ontario Hemp Alliance, Six Nations Economic Development Commission, Agriculture Canada, Aboriginal Business Canada, Hemp Oil Canada, AgroPro and PhytoGene Resources.

Commercial Hemp Breeding
Natural Emphasis, in conjunction with PhytoGene Resources, has been breeding commercial hemp varieties for the Canadian market since 2001. We have developed a number of commercial hemp seed varieties bred specifically for Canadian Hemp seed (grain) production. Our first variety, ESTA-1, was registered in 2004 and subsequently we have registered two additional high yielding varieties: CanMa and GranMa. All three varieties have been formally certified by Health Canada as approved cultivars. For more information, please visit
