Hemp Health Benefits – Scientists say hemp can provide all the nutrients you need

With scientists deeming hemp “the world’s most nutritionally complete food source,” it’s no wonder Hemp Health Benefits are gaining attention worldwide.

About 30 years ago, while traveling through Asia, Paul Benhaim, (now considered a world hemp expert), found it curious how happy and healthy the indigenous people were, despite their primitive living conditions. He took a closer look, and discovered that their diet contained essential fatty acids, compared to the western diet of predominantly processed foods. He began researching essential fats (EFAs), and discovered that hemp seeds are the perfect source of EFAs.

In addition to being an excellent source of EFAs, hemp seeds are high in protein and nutrients, such as vitamin E, calcium, iron and zinc.

Hemp Nutrition – For health’s sake, NC hemp activists call for law reform

A cannabis activist group in North Carolina is raising awareness about Hemp Nutrition and pushing for the state to ease up on regulations for hemp growing and production.

Sharon Wright, a marketing and branding consultant in Charlotte, lives with an autoimmune illness and found that conventional medicine could do little to help, but in her search for alternatives she discovered that consuming hemp seeds helped a lot. The seeds contain the anti-inflammatory component, amino acid arginine. The seeds, which are legal in North Carolina, are also a good source of several nutrients, including vitamins E and B, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.

Hemp Nutrition

Although the seeds are legal in North Carolina, growing them in the state is not, but there is a growing number of people who want to see a change in the cannabis laws to make hemp cultivation and production possible. A small group of black North Carolinians are part of a cannabis-awareness movement that aims to educate the public on the health benefits of both hemp and marijuana, and to change the stigma that cannabis is only good for smoking and getting high.

Hemp Nutrition – Kiwi chef raises hemp awareness by serving hemp-based dishes

Smoke marijuana and you’ll get high, eat hemp and you’ll get nothing but heaps of Hemp Nutrition.

Hemp Nutrition

New Zealand chef, Cameron Sims, wants to end the stigma about hemp, and educate Kiwis on its nutritional value. In fact, he’d like to see hemp seeds as a key protein source amongst Kiwis. A pop-up restaurant will open this week that will give Sims the opportunity to serve up some hemp awareness.

Hemp, like marijuana, is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant, but the THC levels for hemp are around 0.3 percent, while marijuana THC levels are an average 10 percent. So you could smoke a whole field of hemp, but you still wouldn’t get high.

The pop-up restaurant will be serving a variety of dishes that contain hemp seed oil. So far hemp seeds are still illegal for human consumption in New Zealand, but the laws are changing. In April, the Food Safety Minister David Bennett, announced that hemp seeds would be legalised within 18 months. Sims’ goal is to prepare New Zealanders for the new product before it hits the shelves.

Hemp as Medicine – New research shows that bees can collect cannabidiol from industrial hemp plants

Nick French, owner of Colorado Hemp Honey, uses Hemp as Medicine combined with the healing properties of honey and essential oils, to make his limited batches of hemp honey.

French has been researching new and innovative ways to advance both the beekeeping and industrial hemp industries. Hemp extracts can be used as alternative treatment for pain relief and anxiety, but the process of extraction is lengthy and complex. This led French to wonder if there is a simpler, more natural way to obtain the healing properties, (cannabinoids), from hemp.

First, he wanted to find out if bees would naturally extract the cannabinoids (CBD) from industrial hemp, and integrate them into their honey production. This research project concluded that hemp doesn’t have the nectar needed by the bees.

However, the research project led to the amazing discovery that bees can be spurred to collect the healing hemp resins, which they then store in their hives and use to make propolis (bee glue).

Hemp as Medicine

In conclusion, bees can extract the cannabinoids from hemp much more efficiently and economically than our mechanical alternatives.
