Hemp seeds provide a high quality “complete protein,” meaning it has all of the essential amino acids, which she adds is rare for a plant. Additionally, she says it has a “whopping dose” of fiber, essential fatty acids, vitamins B, D and E, and a “blast of antioxidants”.  Both hemp and marijuana come from the same plant cannabis sativa, but the difference between the two basically lies in its level of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which in higher concentrations produces a euphoria or high.

Editor’s Note:  While marijuana is not the main topic of this article, there are a lot of health benefits and uses for its cousin, hemp.  A good read with some good suggestions.
