So we all know UNVC/AGRiMED/SATIVEO/HCI are all involved in cannabis and particularly hemp, but did you know:
Cannabis Seeds & Your Bones
Okay, so you can make a potent oil out of cannabis seed (often referred to as “hemp seeds” because they contain no THC) and if you haven’t added these beauties to your diet yet you’re really missing out. You can chomp down on the raw/toasted seeds or purchase them in the form of hemp seed milk, flour, butter, bread, in trail mixes, etc. in more and more supermarkets, both local and corporate.
They’re arguably the king of seed-food (for humans as well as animals), taste is creamier/nuttier than flax, and have an astounding nutritional profile so there’s no question that a diet rich in hemp seed benefits bone health.
Disclaimer: if you get them from a reliable and certified source, cannabis seeds are thoroughly washed and oftentimes sterilized leaving no phytocannabinoids AT ALL in them so they can be legally imported/sold in the US. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about failing a UI or getting in trouble for eating them (unless expressly forbidden, like for example if you’re currently serving in the military which still holds to nonsense propaganda in my opinion). Could microscopic and completely legal amounts of THC show up in your system from hemp seeds? Technically yes, at about the same odds as winning the lotto if you eat some insane amount of them. No different than needing to smoke about a whole acre of hemp plants to fail a UA.
Here’s some basics about the seeds:
o Over half of the weight of hemp seeds is their oil content, which itself is about 75% pure essential fatty acids in three-to-one ratios including 20% omega-3, or alpha-linoleic, 3% gamma-linoleic, and 1% stearidonic acid, etc.
o This fatty acid content dramatically improves absorption rates of its nutritional content, for example calcium and vitamins D and E.
o They aren’t nuts they’re seeds, cause no known allergies, non-gluten, non-lactose, etc.
o Without the added fiber/minerals in the hulls, the other 25% of seeds is extremely high-quality/highly-digestible plant protein which is where seed-based protein powders (increasingly common alternative to animal-based options) come from.
So, when you use any product that’s derived from the cannabis seeds, you’re giving your bones a boost.
This sounds like another supplement that could be sold in pharmacies through Doctor Dalton's Health Resources Services. I know I would buy the product.
