Yep, you got it right, just like those pain in the ass seeds that used to come in your bag of pot in the 1970's. Wikipedia says; Hemp is one of the earliest domesticated plants known. It has been cultivated by many civilizations for over 12,000 years. Never could I imagine that those seedy little devils were one of the highest complete plant protein sources on the planet. Every one knows hemp is used for rope, and clothing, but I found out that the Hemp plant is a even more versatile plant. It's fibers, core, seeds, and flowers can be used as raw materials to form products ranging from food to paper, and plastic substitutes to carpeting, to the interior and exterior of auto's. Also, Hemp is an Eco-friendly crop that rarely needs pesticide treatments for bugs, or herbicides for weeds. So Hemp Seed Consumers can be assured that hemp products are low in chemical residues.
Oil, seed, and fiber varieties of Cannabis approved for industrial hemp production have only minute amounts of THC (a psychoactive drug associated with marijuana) not enough for any physical or psychological effects. Typically, hemp contains below 0.3% THC, while cultivars of Cannabis grown for recreational or medicinal use can contain anywhere from 2% to over 20%. It's hemp the industrial plant, that provides seeds that we consume. Now these seeds are not just any food. They provide a range of nutrients, including proteins, and fats, that are beneficial to our health. Hemp seeds are so versatile, they can be eaten alone, toasted or not toasted, or added to a variety of foods. Hemp seeds can also be ground in your coffee grinder to make hemp protein for smoothies, and baking.
The hemp seed has the perfect ratio of Omega fatty acids required by the human body. Omega fatty acids are the key nutrients in reducing inflammation. They feed and rejuvenate the cells, help with new cell growth, and keep the cellular structure strong and pliant. Omega 3 fatty acids also improve the cell’s ability to use the nutrients that are ingested. Hemp is also rich in antioxidants, and oxidation is one of the key factors of cellular aging.
A serving of hemp seeds contains about 3 mg. of vitamin E. The recommended dietary allowance, or RDA, is 15 mg. Hemp seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, or sprouted if you like sprouts, there is hemp milk, or make tea with them. They are used in baking, or add them to your trail mix. Hemp seeds contain 174 calories per 3 tbsp. Approximately 44% of the weight of hemp seed is edible oils, containing about 80% essential fatty acids (EFA's). Hemp seed's amino acid profile is "complete" when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs, and soy. Hemp protein contains all 21 known amino acids, including the 9 essential ones adult bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities and ratios to meet the body's needs. 3 tablespoons contains 11 grams of protein.
The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon (15 ml) per day of hemp oil easily provides human daily requirements for EFA's. Hemp seed also contains gamma linoleic acid, or GLA, which is hard to find in food but is necessary for the health of brain, muscle and cell membranes. GLA (gamma linolenic acid) helps our bodies form prostaglandins, potent hormone-like substances that help regulate many bodily processes, such as healthy blood flow, reduce inflammation, and the protection of arterial walls. Hemp helps to stimulate growth and health of the skin, hair and nails. GLA is also linked to decreased symptoms of PMS, arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome. GLA also helps lower bad LDL cholesterol and improve cholesterol ratio.
