Hemp is Not Pot, It’s a Superfood!

By Suzy Cohen

Dear Pharmacist,
You posted a recipe on facebook recently, and it contains “hemp seeds.”  Isn’t that related to pot, and isn’t it illegal?  I’ve never heard of this, and my grocery store says they cannot carry it. --G.K.  Ft. Lauderdale, Florida 

Answer:  Your question is good, but it does crack me up.  First of all, any grocery store in the country can carry this because there is nothing illegal about hemp seeds!  You’re right though, hemp does come from the same plant as marijuana, so many people associate it with getting stoned. However, as I’ll show you, this is just another common misconception.

Hemp seeds are actually so good for your health, that I suggest daily consumption! These little seeds are composed mainly of a non-psychoactive compound called “cannabidiol.” This has been shown to actually block the effects of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the ingredient in marijuana that induces the “high.”  Because of this, many scientists have actually nicknamed hemp as “anti-marijuana.”

These tiny seeds are jam-packed with important nutrients. They contain essential minerals such as phosphorus and magnesium which strengthens our bones. They also have an abundance of vitamin E, which protects our body tissues from damage. In addition, they can improve immune function, raise energy and relieve dry hair and skin.  Guess what else? Hemp may even reduce the symptoms of PMS. Let’s go ladies!

Most importantly though, hemp seeds contain both omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids and I highly recommend those to keep your health in tip-top shape. They have been connected to attaining healthy cholesterol levels (naturally!), protecting against heart disease, and lessening the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Approximately fifty-five percent of hemp is actually composed of linoleic acid, which is the major component of flax seeds -which you all know are great for you too.

In a 2008 Italian study, it was concluded that hemp seeds can reduce inflammation and lessen pain symptoms for those with muscular or skeletal inflammation. These effects, among others, occur because of the special ratio of the essential fatty acids in hemp seeds.

So you want to get more hemp into your diet?  It’s easy -just do like I do. Buy hemp seed oil and replace your other oils.  Nutiva makes a wonderful line of hemp products that most health food stores carry.  Sprinkle the hulled hemp seeds on everything from salads, to yogurt, oatmeal, eggs, sandwiches and even batters for muffins and cakes. Hemp seeds have very little taste, so you’ll barely even know that they’re there! Hemp products are even okay for those of you who avoid gluten, animal protein, sugar, soy and dairy. Now that’s my kind of seed!

Hi!

I heard about it being a superfood and when I saw the seeds sold at the whole grain store where I buy, I decided to buy some. They were cheap, as it's considered "birds food" in Spain!

The problem is... they are whole seeds, not hulled, and I can't see how could I hull them myself! Is there any easy way to do that? And if not, will I be able to use the seeds at all? What about just grinded?

Thank you for your ideas!
