Hemp seeds - the superfood of the future

Latin name:Cannabis sativa / Superfood type: seeds
Hemp seeds are small nutritional miracles. The seeds of this versatile plant contain countless nutrients - such as a high protein content and valuable fatty acids, which are also used for skin care.

Origin & history

Hemp belongs to the mulberry family, which are known for their genetic complexity. This property is probably responsible for allowing this family of plants to survive in almost any climatic zone.

The hemp plant is a tough plant whose origins are believed to be in Central Asia. Hemp is grown in almost every eco-system in the world and reaches an average height of 90 to 180 centimeters. Out of 100 known pests and plant diseases, only eight can harm the hemp plant. Because all of these eight pests can be treated naturally, hemp doesn't need to be sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. The plant grows quickly and forms a canopy of leaves that steals the light for potential weeds.

The currently oldest find of human industry (according to Columbia History of the World) is a piece of fabric made from hemp fiber. Hemp is likely to be one of the oldest man-made crops. Several thousand yes

Before the birth of Christ, for example, hemp was grown for textile, rope, canvas and food production.

 

Recommended intake

Whole hemp seeds (peeled and unpeeled)

Preparation tips

Hemp seeds are ideal raw as a snack between meals. They also go great with salads, smoothies and salad dressings. Since hemp seeds contain a lot of protein, we are much more filling than e.g. sunflower seeds or poppy seeds.

Whole, unpeeled hemp seeds should soak in water to reduce digestive substances normally found in seeds. You can safely eat peeled seeds raw. Alternatively, you can puree them into a pulp or soak them in water to drink them fresh.

Hemp seeds are also great in superfood smoothies, fresh juices, and raw chocolate drinks.

 

Hemp seeds contain almost no THC

Studies show that doses below 5 milligrams of THC have no psychoactive effects in a person weighing 80 kg. Hemp seeds have such a low concentration of THC that you could eat at least 2kg a day and still stay well below the 5 milligram limit. At this point we advise you not to try the 2kg hemp seeds per day yourself.

 

Recommended amount of hemp seeds

  • Beginner or child (ages 2-9): 15-30 grams per day
  • Teenagers (ages 10-18): 30 to 50 grams per day
  • Adults: 50 to 75 grams per day
  • Super athlete dose: up to 140 grams per day

 

Hemp protein powder

Raw hemp powder is particularly interesting for anyone who needs a diet high in protein. Raw hemp seeds are cold-pressed and the remaining defatted 'hemp cake' is ground to a fine powder. Hemp protein is a well-balanced, full-fledged protein source, with many amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The edestin (66 percent of the protein content) and albumin content (33 percent of the protein content) is the highest in the plant world.

You can mix the powder in smoothies, eat it with muesli, or even use it for baking.

 

Hemp oil

You can use hemp oil both externally and internally. For example, you can apply it to your skin to make it more hydrated. It is also ideal for hair care.

For cooking at high temperatures (e.g. frying and baking), we recommend that you avoid hemp oil because it is heat-unstable and therefore breaks down into harmful products. Ideally you use it in the cold kitchen - for example as a basis for delicious salad dressings with a nutty note.
