Hemp Seeds Good or Bad?
Recently, a lady asked me a question about hemp. She said, “What do you think about HEMP SEEDS. We bought some at COSTCO. A quick search looks like they are good for you or no?”
My answer is:
Hemp is one of the healthiest plants on the planet. Hemp seeds are high in the essential fatty acid omega 3s. Omega 3 fatty acids are what our body needs and we have to get them from a food source, because our body doesn’t make them. Omega 3s are anti-inflammatory. Therefore, they are incredibly healing for anyone who has any kind of pain or disease.
Hemp is high in protein and easily digested by the body unlike many proteins like soy or whey that can cause bloating or gas. Hemp is high in vitamin E and trace minerals.
When buying hemp seeds, grind them yourself. If it is already ground it loses a lot of its nutritional value over time. So grind it fresh. Use a coffee bean grinder. A coffee bean grinder is a great investment for seeds and nut grinding. You can buy other hemp products like hemp milk, but be sure to read the ingredients and make sure it isn’t high in sugar or other ingredients.
