Our Company

Hemp Sense Inc. is a Manitoba based company that processes industrial hemp to produce environmentally friendly hemp products.

The focus of our business is to capture the value of the versatile qualities of 100 % hemp straw in the production of patented crumble for cat litter, small animal bedding, hemp fibril soil enricher and other related uses.

Hemp Sense buys baled hemp stalks from farmers, after the hemp grain has been harvested. Instead of going to waste, we process the baled hemp stalks using a unique patented zero waste process.

During the development and ongoing construction of our processing facility, contacts were made with markets and brokers looking for hulled hemp grain (commonly called Hemp Hearts or Hemp Nut). Hemp Sense has installed seed dehulling equipment allowing us to provide custom dehulling services. For more information, please contact us.
