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?
