5 Amazing Health Benefits Of Hemp Seeds That Can Change Your Life

Hemp seeds are the seeds of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa.
Hemp seeds are exceptionally nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals.
Here are 5 health benefits of hemp seeds that are backed up by science.

1.Hemp Seeds May Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease
Heart disease is the number one cause of death worldwide. Interestingly, eating hemp seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease.
The seeds contain high amounts of the amino acid arginine, which produces nitric oxide in your body.
Nitric oxide is a gas molecule that makes your blood vessels dilate and relax, leading to lowered blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease.
The gamma-linolenic acid found in hemp seeds has also been linked to reduced inflammation, which may decrease your risk of diseases like heart disease.

2.Hemp Seeds and Oil May Benefit Skin Disorders
Fatty acids may affect immune responses in your body. Studies suggest that your immune system depends on the balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Hemp seeds are a good source of polyunsaturated and essential fatty acids. They have about a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3, which is considered in the optimal range.
Studies have shown that giving hemp seed oil to people with eczema may improve blood levels of essential fatty acids.
The oil may also relieve dry skin, improve itchiness and reduce the need for skin medication. 

3.Hemp Seeds Are a Great Source of Plant-Based Protein.
About 25% of calories in hemp seeds come from protein, which is relatively high.
In fact, by weight, hemp seeds provide similar amounts of protein as beef and lamb — 30 grams of hemp seeds, or 2–3 tablespoons, provide about 11 grams of protein.
They are considered a complete protein source, which means that they provide all the essential amino acids. Your body cannot produce essential amino acids and must obtain them from your diet.
Complete protein sources are very rare in the plant kingdom, as plants often lack the amino acid lysine. Quinoa is another example of a complete, plant-based protein source.

4.Whole Hemp Seeds May Aid Digestion
Fiber is an essential part of your diet and linked to better digestive health.
Whole hemp seeds are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, containing 20% and 80%, respectively.
Soluble fiber forms a gel-like substance in your gut. It’s a valuable source of nutrients for beneficial digestive bacteria and may also reduce spikes in blood sugar and regulate cholesterol levels.
Insoluble fiber adds bulk to your stool and may help food and waste pass through your gut. It has also been linked to a reduced risk of diabetes.

5.Hemp Seeds May Reduce Symptoms of PMS and Menopause
Up to 80% of women of reproductive age may suffer from physical or emotional symptoms caused by premenstrual syndrome. These symptoms are very likely caused by sensitivity to the hormone prolactin.
Gamma-linolenic acid, found in hemp seeds, produces prostaglandin E1, which reduces the effects of prolactin.


  1. Lymphoma survivor here. I've been taking CBD oil for over 3 years and never felt better! and I agree, Hempful Farms has some of the best formula CBD oils on the market and 99% purity!

  2. That Gamma-Linolactin looks like something I would be interested in. Its so frustrating that we are not allowed to grow this stuff because of the drug it is used for because I have tons of seeds here and would love to grow it with my lupins. You need to be registered as a company and have a license to grow it in Ireland.

  3. Seeds, nuts, grains, greens, cereals (not being processed) and beans are healthy. As a matter of fact, human beings should eat according to God's Words found in GENESIS 1:29. If not, diseases and premature death will surrender people who don't want to eat healthy. No meat at all, no alcohol on any forms, no smoking, no coffee. Yes, drink a lot of water. Sleeping is also excellent for our health.

  4. When you say, “MAY” after saying been backed by science, your being disingenuous. If something is back by science you don’t say, “It may”. Backed by science means it’s been tested and proven to work. Not speculated.

  5. I have the best land in Costa Rica for this industry, whether for sale, to rent or develop projects with you, several of these are located in the blue zone of the planet where the elderly live up to 125 years, these same lands own the best water and climate in the world according to studies carried out by national geografic in 2005. The laws here legalized the cane or cbd a few days ago that is why I am offering these services. I also have my neighbors and fellow farmers from other areas interested. This country can grow all types of hemp 12 months a year regardless of the season, that's something very important that I almost forgot. The two main airports are close to the same as the two maritime ports and the Panama Canal we have next. In this country it moves by land from the Atlantic to the Pacific in four and a half hours. We have three types of climate. Costa Rica presents a tropical climate characterized, in general, by its excellent temperatures and rainfall during much of the year.
    Climate Warm Humid (Tropical Humid)
    Warm Dry Climate (Tropical with dry season)
    Climate Cool Dry (Temperate). I repeat here is perfect for growing all types of hemp twelve months of the year.


    The cannabis plants are a
    large family of flowering plants. Its origins are in the Central

    Asia region with scatterings all over South Asia. Because of
    how fast these plants grow and how much use it offers, people have been using
    this plant in different ways even before recorded history. It’s used in
    handicraft, medicine, clothing, and so much more.

    Cannabis sativa is where hemp comes from and is primarily
    used as an industrial material.


  7. India knew the benefits of hemp n it's seeds and all. Was largely used in ayurveda medicines. Other Scientists do * research* now. But in India it was done by sages many 1000 yrs ago. Britishers put a ban on it and now it's grown all over the world but not in India!! Sad story.

  8. I'm old enough to remember when hemp seeds were added to bird food . We had high grade marijuana growing around the house back in the 60s' .
