Hemp seeds are gaining increased recognition as a delicious and nutritious food, but few still know they have significant medicinal value as well…

One of the most potent medicinal foods on the planet is the seed of the cannabis sativa plant, which has a documented history of use in in the Chinese pharmacopeia that goes back to 2727 B.C., and archeological evidence indicating it was likely used as far back as 12,000 B.C.1

A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry summarized its nutritional properties as follows:

Hemp seed has high levels of fatty acids, protein, insoluble fiber, and a rich set of minerals and vitamins. It is considered to be perfectly balanced with regard to the ratio (3:1) of two essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) for human nutrition, linoleic (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acids (ALA) (omega-3).”

The study also summarized the growing body of research in existence that demonstrates their medicinal properties:

“In addition to its nutritional value, hemp seed demonstrated positive health benefits, including alleviating constipation, lowering cholesterol, cardiovascular health benefits, immunomodulatory effects, and dermatological disease amelioration effects. Hemp seed extracts showed also strong antioxidant and anti-aging effects and the potential to improve the impaired learning and memory induced by chemical drugs in mice.”

Titled, “Characterization of Lignanamides from Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) Seed and Their Antioxidant and Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitory Activities,” the study explored the hitherto unexamined presence of secondary metabolites of hemp seed in order to identify bioactive compounds that could help explain both their observed and purported health benefits.
