Are Hemp Products just for people with “alternative” lifestyle?

As I said, you will hear a lot about hemp from me in the days to come. I will still occasionally add some yummy recipes and maybe even a blog post about exercise. But let’s talk about hemp today, again 🙂

I heard about hemp products many times over the past few years, but never really wanted to learn more about as for some reason I thought hemp products were either for junkies or for people with alternative lifestyle, you know, those kind of people who wear clothes that they probably made themselves, they are vegan and their children are not vaccinated.

Well, lot has changed since I was that judgmental over others – I respect vegans and I love vegan food, I am not planning to vaccinate my child, but those are big topics on their own, lets get back to hemp. The point is that hemp literally fascinates me now and I think hemp should be mainstream. Why is it normal to do your regular shopping in a pharmacy, for pharmacies to show adverts for discounts on telly, yet it is still not normal for people to use natural supplements to take care of their help. I really do believe that “Prevention is better than cure”.

If you come to my house you will not find any pills or pharmaceutical products, only natural food supplements – Cordyceps capsules for immunity, Chitosan capsules for digestion, CDB hemp oil for immunity. Anyway, let’s get back to hemp.

Hemp products are a part of a healthy natural life. Hemp has been used all over the world for centuries. Cannadorra hemp products, that I personally use, are 100% natural, they are processed in a cold form and they are ideal for human organism.

Cannabis vs Hemp vs Marijuana, what’s the difference? Cannabis is a plant family that includes many species, such as hemp and marijuana. Hemp contains very low levels of THC or none, and hemp products do not contain any THC at all. However hemp is high in beneficial cannabinoids, such as CBD which promote overall health state. While marijuana, as we all know, is high in THC which is a psychoactive substance, simply makes you high.

I have set up a Facebook group called Hemp For Health where I would love people to educate each other about hemp, I am still earning, share ideas, recipes and experience. Please join the group by clicking here. 

 

 

 

Hemp goodies

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 ZelenĂĄ 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?

You know the days when you come home famished and you realize that both your fridge and your pantry are practically empty? I had a day like that when I came home from work and I found only eggs, spinach and tomatoes in my fridge. And since I always keep protein powder at home, my hemp protein pancakes were born.
