What’s so great about Hemp Seeds?
Want to know what all the fuss is about? Hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious seeds in the world! Hemp seeds are naturally low in carbs, rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc. This combination makes Hemp Seeds ideal to starve off hunger and sugar cravings and help you stay full for longer.
Are Hemp Seeds a good source of protein?
Yes, especially for those who eat a plant based diet, hemp seeds are one of the best sources of protein. They are a complete protein, meaning they contain all of the essential amino acids needed by the human body in perfect proportions and they have a highly digestible form of protein.
Why are they called Hemp Energy Balls?
Because our balls feature Hemp Seeds AND Plant Protein, these snacks are packed with protein. A high protein snack is a great option as instead of giving you a quick burst of energy, the protein gradually releases it throughout the day so you remain focused and not fatigued.
Are there any other benefits?
Hemp seeds really are a multi-tasking superfood, not only do they kick sugar and hunger cravings to the curb but they help regenerate, plump and energize tired and dull looking skin due to the high content of omega fatty acids, Vitamin E, zinc, calcium and magnesium. Due to their fatty acid profile, studies have shown hemp seeds can help reduce PMS symptoms such as irritability, breast tenderness, low moods and fluid retention. And if that’s not enough, they are also great for digestion and helping to reduce the risks of heart disease.
And the taste?
A deliciously smooth and nutty taste!
Are Hemp and Marijuana the same thing?
No they aren’t! They are related, though, they’re different varieties of the same species of plant (Cannabis sativa). The marijuana variety contains high amounts of THC (the compound responsible for the “high”), whereas industrial or food-grade hemp comes from low-THC varieties of cannabis, with little or no THC content. Think of the amount of opium found in poppy seeds – same idea here. It’s impossible to use hemp seed as a drug.
