Marijuana seeds and their effects on the human body
Hemp seeds are legal even in countries where marijuana is illegal, but only because they have no psychoactive components. In no way will their consumption affect the mind, but they are definitely worth introducing into the diet.
What's in the seeds
The fat content of hemp seeds reaches 38% due to the high content of omega-3,6 and 9 acids. There are carbohydrates, phenolic compounds and 20 amino acids, including essential ones. Vitamins include the antioxidants tocopherol and retinol, vitamins K, B and D, which are often in short supply in temperate latitudes. Hemp seeds contain a significant concentration of potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, while other elements are present in smaller amounts. All this makes the grains super healthy for humans, especially if there are few green vegetables and seafood on their menu.
How cannabis seeds affect the body
- Have a positive effect on the nervous system and metabolism;
- Stimulate the work of the gastrointestinal tract, but people with gallstone disease should be careful or even completely exclude the seeds from the diet before consulting a doctor;
- Act as a preventive measure against atherosclerosis and liver disease;
- Strengthen muscle and bone tissue;
- They improve skin, hair, and nails.
It is not necessary to devour grains because of their high fat content. The concentrate of benefits is found in hemp oil - 1-2 tablespoons a day is sufficient. Not to be confused with CBD oil or cannabis oil, which are made from cannabis plants and inflorescences and are not available in non-legalized countries. This particular product has analgesic, anticonvulsant and antispasmodic effects. It is prescribed for patients with epilepsy, cancer, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, hepatitis C, depression, PTSD, migraines and other conditions. The seeds do not reduce inflammation or lower intraocular pressure - the cannabinoids extracted from the adult plants and their fruits do that, as well as the previous one.
