Questions and Answers
Let me first clear some negative thoughts out of your brain. Hemp is a cannabis plant like marijuana, but here is where the similarities end. I will explain the difference. Cannabis is the only plant that contains molecular compounds called cannabinoids. There are many different cannabinoids, but I will deal with just two. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, whereas CBD is the anti-psychoactive cannabinoid. Marijuana is the cannabis that is high in THC (the psychoactive cannabinoid and low in CBD (the anti-psychoactive cannabis). On the other hand, hemp, (Industrial Hemp), is high in CBD and very low in THC.
In fact, edible hemp seeds and hemp seed oil not only are drug-free, they are highly nutritious food ingredients. They are, and always have been, legal in the United States
That being said Hemp is an excellent source of nutrition for the following reasons:
* It is an excellent source of protein. The seeds from hemp contain all of the nine amino acids the body needs to build and repair muscle. This is a very rare quality in a plant. This is also good news for vegetarians. They can use hemp seeds as a complete source of protein.
* Hemp also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which can help prevent a heart attack and reduce inflammation. In addition, hemp is mercury free, unlike some seafood that also provides us with our omega-3 fatty acids.
* Hemp is also loaded with nutrients such as fiber, B vitamins, iron and vitamin E. Whole seeds can be purchased in bulk and can be sprinkled on cereal and salads, or mixed in bread dough and muffins, for starters. There is no need to grind them to release the nutrients, which makes them a more convenient health food to use. Hemp oil has a mild and nutty taste to it.
However, edible hemp is NOT derived from the stalk. I believe this is where the above poster was confused. This is indeed used as a fiber for rope, paper, fuel, clothing, and much more. Edible hemp is derived from the bud of the male cannabis plant and from the seeds. An oil is produced from these seeds that can be used in just about anything.
I don’t have any recipes for hemp brownies, but they are NOT that hard to make. Basically you just add Hemp Seed nut. Here is a great recipe I discovered and have tried for Hemp Fudge:
Makes: 20 good sized pieces
Prep Time: 20 min
1 cup Hemp Seed Nut
2 cups Raw Sesame tahini(=one 16 ounce jar)
3 cups soaked raisins or currants(start with 2 dry cups)
1/4 cup carob powder
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
Soak the raisins in water for 8 hours. Drain off the water.
Mix the tahini and raisins together in a bowl and stir. Then run the mixture through a Champion juicer with the “solid” plate. If you don’t have a Champion juicer, mix the tahini and raisins in a food processor until they form a paste.
In a bowl, combine the paste with the remaining ingredients. Stir vigorously until well mixed. Press the mixture into a 9 by 13 casserole pan
Place the pan in the refrigerator for 5 minutes. Cut the fudge into pieces and serve.
Note: If you really like carob, try doubling the amount.
What about hemp seed oil? I read that it has b3, b6, magnesium, and zinc from this website. Http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/learn/o…
