 Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is not the same as the more widely known marijuana plant. Marijuana, weed, pot, ganja, herb, coli, grass or whatever name you chose has a high level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). which is the active ingredient that produces a high that most people associate with all hemp. Industrial Hemp however contains no THC and therefore is not grown for the same reason as Marijuana.

Hemp has many industrial uses, but you can also be getting valuable long lasting health benefits by adding these seeds to your diet. Hemp can provide you with a complete protein and a balance of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids. It also contains many B vitamins, vitamins A, D and E, calcium, sodium, iron and dietary fiber. Therefore Hemp Seed can be a valuable part of your dietary needs on a daily basis.

Every bit of the Hemp Plant has a use. It is better for paper for trees and superior to cotton for clothing. The fiber can even be used as a very practicle and durable building material, that is currently being used in many areas. Anything remaining such as leaves, stalks etc can be used to feed livestock as well as a great compost material.

 Deserts, Appetizers and Eating Out: You can make a perfectly balanced and nutritious meal out of any dessert or appetizer by simply putting on a few tablespoons of Hemp Seeds. Carry some in your purse or in your car or pockets for a quick bit of healthiness on the go..

Salads and Pitas: These are great in Salads of any type. I enjoy a bit of crunchiness in my salad and these can be added to or take the place of sunflower or pumpkins seeds that I enjoy. In Pitas the seeds blend very nicely with all the flavors and textures and certainly make it much more healthful.

Stir-fry: You can add the Hemp Seeds during the frying process and also add them to the finished product as the final topping.

Meats: You can make coating and basting sauces using mostly Hemp Seeds. You can apply this before and after cooking. You can use them in dressing for added flavor and nutrition.
