If you've ever picked up a juicy bud and wondered, "What gives weed its flavour…
It might come as a surprise, but when you eat cannabis seeds there are a number of health benefits!
There are no traces of THC or CBD in the seeds themselves, so let’s just get that out of the way. If you are wondering how to enjoy them, you can sprinkle them on top of your favourite snack, roast them, even eat them as is.
The heart of these seeds tends to have a light, nutty flavour, while delivering an extremely nutritious boost.
We’d strongly suggest using our seeds for growing purposes, as that’s what they’ve been bred for. And rather go to a health food outlet and purchase hemp seeds, but if you feel like being flashy, by all means, treat yourself.
But let’s talk about the health benefits of eating cannabis seeds.
Eat Cannabis Seeds For Easy-to-Digest Proteins
Many nutritional experts agree that when it comes to food, plant-based proteins are generally healthier and easier for the body to digest. A study with a large participant group came to the same conclusion.
Marijuana seeds are one of the best sources of natural, plant-based proteins. It’s why bodybuilders choose hemp seed protein powders when looking to increase their protein intake.
Cannabis Seeds Can Help With Weight Management
If you’re looking at managing your weight, in order to gain or lose, a cannabis-seed based diet could help. Marijuana seeds are jammed packed with vitamins and minerals. These include:
- Vitamin E;
- And Zinc.
And the fact that they are protein-heavy means they should keep you fuller for longer.
While, the seeds are great for weight loss, they can also assist with gaining mass as they have all the right elements to help you gain lean muscle tone. Add them to your daily yoghurt snack.
What else do marijuana seeds offer?
They Have Omega Fatty Acids
While the human body does produce it’s own cannabinoids, surprisingly, we do not make our own Omega fatty acids. Not even Omega 3 and 6. It’s why we’re constantly looking for ways to ingest them.
And cannabis and hemp seeds have been said to have the most abundant source of natural Omega acids in the entire plant kingdom. More than the usual suspects like Chia, walnuts, and flaxseeds.
If you are wondering, Omega-3 fatty acids help to promote healthy brain and heart activities.
Talking about the heart.
Cannabis Seeds, Good For The Heart
Because, as we mentioned, cannabis seeds have high levels of Omega acids, they help reduce blood pressure.
If you lower high blood pressure, you reduce your risk of strokes and improve the overall cardiovascular functioning of the heart.
Another element present in cannabis seeds is arginine, which helps relax and dilate the blood vessels, which in turn is a good thing as it reduces blood pressure again.
And also, as the seeds are an abundant source of gamma-linolenic acids, they also reduce the production of specific proteins responsible for inflammation. A massive heart health bonus.
Whole Body Health
If you do decide to consume cannabis seeds on a regular basis, you could be preventing disease and promoting good general health such as reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other psychological conditions.
And as a final note, cannabis seeds are maybe the only plant-based food sources that contain every single amino acid needed for humans to survive.
So, if you’re not looking at growing our seeds – eat them.
