What is Hemp?
Hemp or industrial hemp, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products.
It is one of the fastest growing plantsand was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago.
It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.
Hemp is used to make a variety of commercial and industrial products including rope, clothes, food, paper, textiles, plastics, insulation and biofuel.
What are the Nutritions facts?
100 grams of hulled hemp seeds supply 586 calories. They are 5% water, 5% carbohydrates, 49% total fat and 31% protein. Hemp seeds are notable in providing 64% of the Daily Value of protein per 100 gram serving.
Hempseed amino acid profile is comparable to other sources of protein such as meat, milk, eggs and soy.Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score values , which measure the degree to which a food for humans is a "complete protein", were 0.49-0.53 for whole hemp seed, 0.46-0.51 for hemp seed meal, and 0.63-0.66 for dehulled hemp seed.
Hemp seeds are a rich source of B vitamins, the dietary minerals, manganese , phosphorus, magnesium , zinc , iron and dietary fiber .
Approximately 73% of the energy in hemp seeds is in the form of fats and essential fatty acids,mainly polyunsaturated fatty acids, linoleic, oleic and alpha-linolenic acids.
What is Hemp Oil?
What is Hemp oil?
Hemp oil or hempseed oil is obtained by pressing hemp seeds. Cold pressed, unrefined hemp oil is dark to clear light green in color, with a nutty flavour oil are one of the best sources of essential fatty acids. Apart from scarce gamma-linolenic acid they contain omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, in perfect ratio of 3:1.
What are Cannabinoids?
A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Ligands for these receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids ..
The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major constituent of the plant..
both members of the species Cannabis sativa contain at least 113 different cannabinoids, butthey are distinct strains with unique biochemical compositions and uses.
Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effect.
What is Endocannabinoid?
Currently, there are quite a few studies focusing on cannabidiol, which has led to the discovery of the largest neurotransmitter system of our body.
This system is called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for the management of highly complex processes in our body.
Examples include: sensory perception, appetite, immune system function, operation of organs, etc. These processes are controlled by endogenous cannabinoids (Endocannabinoid). As Anandamide and 2-AG.
This Endocannabinoids influence processes by binding to receptors of the CB1 and CB2 receptor.
