Hemp is Used for Seed and Stalk

Hemp is an economically cultivated industrial plant that has strong fibers which are used in the manufacture of clothing and other materials, including the nutritional and medicinal use of the seeds.

  • Insulation

Nutritional and medicinal use of seeds

  • Fatty acid supplement
  • Protein powder
  • Cosmetics
  • Cooking oil
  • Baking flour

Hemp seeds are used in herbalism for their medicinal bowel moving and tissue moisturizing properties, while also being a superfood that adds nutrient density to the diet; they contain a minuscule and inconsequential amount of intoxicating cannabinoids.

Hemp seeds contain:

  • omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids
  • amino acids
  • polyphenols
  • trace minerals
Hemp Seeds are Safe Edible Non-intoxicating Food

Generally hemp seeds are best consumed crushed, powdered, or squeezed to make hemp seed oil and powder. Hemp seeds are safe to consume because they contain an inconsequential amount of intoxicating cannabinoids.

Hemp seed oil comes only from the seeds, not the flowers or leaves, and contains omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids which are important for heart, lung, and brain health, and the lubrication of tissues throughout the body. The polyphenols in hemp seed oil are used by the body as an antioxidant.

Hemp seed protein powder contains all the essential amino acids for achieving greater nutrient density in the diet and reaching one's daily protein requirements.
