The hemp for these products is legally grown in Holland and no pesticides or insecticides are used on the plants. By legally grown, this means it does not contain THC, so the product line can be sold and shipped to virtually any country.
Nirvana's wholesale catalog states their hemp beer "has no secret ingredients: water, malt, hops, barley and hemp", and is also available in an alcohol-free version.
Hemp wine at Nirvana is available in red and white, and can be purchased by the bottle or case. Hemp wine "shooter" size bottles are also available.
Nirvana's line also includes a special tea, hemp ice tea, hemp vinegar, hemp elixer, a hemp liquer, and consumable hemp seeds.
The best way to reach Nirvana is to take the #4 tram and get off at Lutmastraat, then walk west one block to Toldwarstraat. Stop in and visit, chat with the friendly, knowledgeable staff.....and say hello to the pet iguana in the front window.
