Hemp is one of the healthiest plants on the planet. It is naturally resistant to pests, which means that it doesn’t always require harmful pesticides even when grown on a commercial scale. You will be please to know that as a food, hemp seeds have an abundance of health benefits. I have gathered 39 of the best hemp recipes below, but first let’s take a quick look at why this plant-food is so good for us.

Health benefits of hemp seeds
(in a nutshell)

  • Protein Power Super Star – Hemp is one of the most complete proteins in the plant food kingdom, containing ALL 21 known amino acids (the building blocks of protein). Protein is responsible for making neurotransmitters – the essential internal messaging service that sends the signals around your body to make it function. Hemp is well recognised as a super-food by those seeking a healthy protein source.
  • Perfect balance of omega essential fats
    Hemp contains natures perfect ratio (3:1) of omega 3 to omega 6 essentially fatty acids – a unique accomplishment in the plant world. These compounds have been shown to have a particularly beneficial effect on our health.
  • GLA (gamma linolenic acid)
    Hemp is an excellent source of GLA, which has been shown to help people with skin disorders, PMS, menopause, cancer, heart disease, arthritis and has good anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • High fibre food (yes we really do spell fibre like that here in the UK!)
    Like most plant foods, hemp seeds are rich in soluble and un-soluble fibre. Fibre naturally keeps the colon clear and gives you a satiated feeling, whilst helping to reduces sugar cravings.
  • High in antioxidants
    Hemp seed is high in the antioxidant vitamin E. It has also been found to contain tocopherol, which benefits both Alzheimer’s and atherosclerosis.  Phytol is another powerful antioxidant from hemp seed, which has is known to have both antioxidant and anticancer properties.
