Hemp goodies

gainer_1000g.jpg

You might have noticed that I recently started using some hemp products, such as hemp creams and hemp protein powders. This time I ordered some new items together with my regular Hemp Mass Gainer – CBD Hemp Oil and CBD Gel. I am very interested in CBD, so over the next few days I will post more info on CBD and my experience with CBD hemp products.

Btw I get these from Zelená Země for Czech market and Cannadorra for international markets, both are one, Czech based company with high quality hemp products. To get 5% off, use my discount code “annaogunnusi” 😉

However, let me tell you first about health benefits of hemp itself. First of all, let me clarify – hemp does not equal marijuana. I am not talking about products with THC content here, just so we are clear 🙂

According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, one tablespoon of hemp seeds weighing 30 grams (g) contains: 

  • 166 calories
  • 9.47 g of protein
  • 14.62 g of fat
  • 2.6 g of carbohydrates (including 1.2 g of fiber and 0.45 g of sugar)
  • 21 milligrams (mg) of calcium
  • 2.38 mg of iron
  • 210 mg of magnesium
  • 495 mg of phosphorus
  • 360 mg of potassium
  • 2.97 mg of zinc
  • 33 micrograms (mcg) of folate

Hemp seeds also provide vitamin C, some B vitamins, and vitamins A and E.

So, hemp is a great source of protein, magnesium and healthy fats. And each hemp product has it’s own health benefits that I will describe in the blogs to come.

What is your experience with hemp products?
