I recently started a "Cannabis Corner" on my Instagram account to demystify cannabis in all its forms, including Hemp. I am also on a quest to create quick and easy recipes with anti-inflammatory properties, especially when meal planning and cooking are out of the question due to fatigue and pain. I tell you when fatigue hits; I can't be a Martha Stewart in the kitchen. It's too tiring.
Highlights on Hemp
Hemp refers to the Cannabis Sativa Cultivar grown for industrial and food purposes. Hemp seeds and their derivatives (i.e. hemp oil and flour) are a powerhouse of nutrients & antioxidants.
Hemp seeds have a nutty flavour giving a great complement to your smoothies, salads, granola, oatmeal, and even your berry sauce toast.
They are packed with highly digestible plant-based protein and anti-inflammatory fats such as gamma-linoleic that support the production of endocannabinoids, which are chemical compounds that bind to specific receptors in our bodies to promote balance and wellness.
