Why Hemp?

 

Many of you may even be asking yourselves what hemp is; so first we are going to clear the air about the origin of hemp and its properties. It comes from the plant cannabis sativa, which is not the same as marijuana. The difference between both is the level of THC (the chemical that gets you high) that each has.

 

Hemp has less than 0.3% THC, which is way below the regular 5-35% THC that marijuana has. So, hemp will never get you high or do any harm to your health. On the contrary, it is one of the best SUPERFOODS that nature has.

What makes hemp a superfood?

It is filled with essential fatty acids and protein, which makes it the top seed to ingest if you want to increase your protein levels and have it as a post exercise snack. It’s also a great source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals like magnesium, zinc, calcium and potassium, among others.

Including hemp in your regular diet will bring multiple benefits to your health, it can help prevent coronary heart disease, cancer, and even fight symptoms of depression.

 This tiny seed is also packed with Omega 3&6, as well as vitamin E, which helps boost the immune system and protect the skin from free radicals. In case you were wondering, it is also completely legal to consume in Australia and several countries from around the world.

That really makes it super, right?
