Hemp seed, the superfood!
No, you don’t get high from them! Hemp seeds are really healthy and popular with vegans and athletes. The ancient Chinese and Egyptians have already benefited from the positive effect. They produced medicine from hemp seeds and blossoms. They also used the seed oil as cooking and lamp oil and used the fibers for sails, ropes and clothing.
It is no big effort to integrate the healthy seeds into the daily diet. You can also eat them unpeeled. This way they have a crisper consistency. All in all they taste rather nutty and are therefore perfectly suited to be eaten as often as you want. You can also sprinkle them over your granola or simply use the grains in recipes! For example, there are many recipes for smoothies, protein shakes or cakes and you can even make an alternative milk with the seeds! They are suitable for allergy sufferers, so far there are no cases of hemp protein allergies, and the small grains contain neither lactose nor gluten. For those who prefer savoury recipes, there are also numerous recipes.
What exactly are cannabis seeds now and what is so great about them?
They grow on the hemp plant, actually like small nuts. Hemp seeds contain all important amino acids! They serve as a high protein source, have high components of iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium, potassium, as well as vitamin B1, B2 and E and the healing omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids! You can also process hemp seeds, into flour (when baking it replaces 10% of the normal flour), and make oil (but it is heat-sensitive, so not suitable for frying). You can buy the seeds in organic supermarkets, health food shops, or on the Internet.
