The latest and greatest superfood is hemp, and you may be surprised to learn that there are a great number of Hemp Health Benefits.
Hemp seeds are probably the simplest superfood solution. These tasty little seeds, which stem from the hemp plant, a strain of cannabis sativa, can be added to almost any meal. They have a tasty, nutty flavour, and are perfect in smoothies, sprinkled on salads and breakfast cereal, and added to your favourite baked goods.
Although hemp seeds are from the cannabis sativa plant, and are biologically related to marijuana, hemp contains mere traces of THC, the psychoactive ingredient, so it is impossible to get high from hemp.
On the contrary, hemp is loaded with nutrients. They are a balanced source of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are important for brain development and immune system function. These super seeds also contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which helps relieve arthritis, high cholesterol and ADHD.
