What is Hemp?

A tall blooming herb, the hemp plant has been used since ancient times in China. Historically, some varieties of early paper were made from hemp fibers, and the plant has been a source of fabric for thousands of years. In the West, the United States founding fathers, notably Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, cultivated hemp crops. Many cultures have long worked hemp seeds into their cuisine, and its oil has grown in popularity during recent decades, thanks to its pleasant nutty flavor and beneficial nutritional profile.**

Hemp seed products contain an array of amino acids and are especially notable for their high content of omega-3 (alpha-linolenic) and omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acids. These essential fatty acids are associated with numerous wellness properties, and hemp oil has been specifically investigated for various health attributes. Studies have suggested that the compounds in the seeds promote cardiovascular wellness by regulating inflammation, and research has linked these nutrients to maintaining healthy blood lipid (cholesterol) balance. Additional studies have found that the seed oil may aid optimal immune system response and encourage skin health.**

Raw hemp seeds, which are generally available shelled and ready to eat, can be used in numerous ways. Rich in protein and fiber, these seeds may be consumed plain like sunflower seeds or pine nuts, or added to various dishes. Among the most popular approaches to eating the seeds include adding them to pastas and salads. They are also valued as additions to smoothies, granola and oatmeal. Although the seeds can be used in baking and cooking, they are most commonly eaten raw or lightly sautéed. Due to their fiber content, these seeds have been associated with healthy digestion.**

Hemp seed oil has become particularly in-demand as a salad dressing, much like olive oil. This kind of oil should not be used for frying purposes and only should only be slightly heated during any cooking. A healthy non-heated use for hemp oil is adding a tablespoon to fruit and vegetable smoothies. The oil also works well in dips and pestos, enhancing texture, taste and nutrient content.**

Hemp Seed Products

Hemp seed products feature the seeds of the plant, either in whole or oil form. The oil is primarily cold-pressed and offered as a liquid, though it is sometimes available as capsules. The seeds are sold whole or in powder form. With the whole variety, the seeds have generally been shelled for convenient consumption. Hemp oil may be an ingredient in some skin-care products.**

Hemp Seed Product Directions for Use

Regular supplementation of the oil should not begin before consulting with a health care provider. In liquid form, the oil is generally taken in doses of one tablespoon, the equivalent of roughly 15 grams.**
