Is hemp is the new Superfood?

Since the beginning of time, hemp has been a plant used for paper, textiles, and cordage and about tens of thousands of other uses and is only now coming into the spotlight with growing awareness.

Until late, research data was restricted to research companies or other associated institutions due to the fact that hemp was portrayed as an evil plant and prohibited substance by the main stream media. Nowadays, with the growing awareness of the benefits of hemp, more and more people are turning to hemp as an alternative health supplement.

As of November the 12th this year, Hemp became legal for human consumption in Australia and people are going crazy for hemp.

First of all,

Hemp as a food source mainly comes in 3 forms, either as hemp seeds, hemp powder or hemp oil that can be easily added to all your meals. Pack high in protein and full of 20 essential amino acids our bodies need along with Omega-3 & 6. This makes hemp the perfect food.

With years of lobbying and protesting the health benefits for not just hemp but cannabis as well, has made a huge positive impact on the health of so many. On November 12, the laws changed to allow hemp for human consumption and now we can all enjoy the benefits of hemp as the new superfood.

The fact that hemp wins by a mile when it comes to health benefits clearly shows that we have mean high mislead from the truth and sold on what was convenient.

Stuff convenience! Convenience need no good for me.
