How legal is hemp in the world! For example, did you know that the John Gutenberg Bible was printed on hemp paper, Levi Strauss’s first jeans were made from hemp canvas, and even the body of Henry Ford’s first car was made of bio-composite hemp and was designed to run on hemp biofuel? Well, it means that legality has not been an issue while talking about hemp. We can exclude only those few years from this legality when it was banned without proper research and homework.

The establishments and governments realized just a few years back in countries like the United States and Canada that hemp is not harmful to the human body. The medical experts are also convinced about it and ready to share their enthusiasm about the benefits of hemp oil and sprinkle hemp seeds on smoothies. Let’s figure it out!

Hemp is an amazing plant, no matter how you look at it. Our ancestors gladly devoured hemp porridge, and it gave them health and longevity. In general, throughout the history of mankind, and up to the middle of the 20th century, strong fiber was made from hemp, clothes were sewn, paper, fuel, and bio-plastics were made. In the 1960s, this plant was outlawed due to the psychoactive substances used in the manufacture of drugs in some varieties of cannabis.

Only one of the varieties of cannabis can be used for the manufacture of illegal drugs, while other varieties can be used to extract a lot of benefits for health and beauty.

For all supporters of a healthy lifestyle, hemp is primarily interesting because when eaten, in the form of oil, seeds, or flour, it has a powerful healing effect due to the record content of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Moreover, in the correct ratio (Omega-3: Omega-6 1: 3), more vitamins and minerals can be obtained. Hemp cosmetics make hair shiny and strong, nails strong, and skin healthy and clean.

Hemp seed powder is one of the most popular products. Hemp protein contains 50% of high-quality vegetable protein, which fully replaces animal protein. Provides the body with a complete amino acid composition, contains the most important trace elements and vitamins, and is completely absorbed due to the lack of heating when receiving the product. The presence of the protein provides support for the normal course of digestive processes and protection of the immune system, and the protein albumin removes free radicals from the body.

One serving of Cannabis provides the body with a daily requirement of the essential amino acid Omega-3. In the diet of the average human, you can often find Omega-6, but cannot find Omega-3 not frequently. 

The antioxidants contained in hemp have a beneficial effect on skin condition, hair, and nails.

In addition, hemp oil rich in trace elements (calcium, sulfur, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, chromium), vitamins B and C, chlorophyll.

Eating cannabis seeds is a real salvation for a city dweller, whose diet mostly consists of refined foods, poor in fiber.

The seeds of this plant are just a storehouse of substances necessary to maintain health and vitality: calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins of group B and C, antioxidants, and essential amino acids. Just a handful of cannabis seeds, added daily to the morning porridge that decorates a sandwich or dessert, will strengthen the immune system, cardiovascular and nervous systems, and help normalize cholesterol levels.

Hemp flour

Hemp flour is used for more than just baked goods. It is also a source of cellulose for enriching morning cereals or smoothies, and an excellent thickener for soups and sauces. 25% protein, 40% carbohydrates, 10% fats – the composition can be called dietary! Hemp flour does not contain gluten and has a beneficial effect on the digestive tract, supporting the beneficial microflora.

How to cook with hemp flour? In baking, we recommend combining in a ratio of 1: 3 or 1: 4 with the main type of flour (can be combined with any!). If you want to make a smoothie, then take one tablespoon per glass of water. The easiest recipe is a banana, a handful of berries, water, and flour! Syrup or honey can be added for sweetness if desired.
