Hemp seeds from the hemp plant (cannabis sativa) are naturally loaded with nutritional value, boasting all of the essential amino acids and fatty acids the body needs. These whole hemp seeds arrive with their hulls and shells intact, but once you crack into them, you’ll discover a huge variety of nutritional and medicinal applications.
4 Surprising Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds
As a dietary supplement, hemp seeds provide a hearty helping of simple proteins, a perfect balance of essential acids, and a blend of rich minerals and antioxidants.
1) Protein Powerhouse: Hemp seed is valued for being a complete protein, containing all 21 amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids. It’s important to consume essential amino acids through food because our bodies cannot produce them naturally. A single serving of hemp seeds contains 11 grams of protein. Between 1/4 and 1/3 of hemp seed by weight is pure protein, and hemp seed protein is distinctive for being amazingly easy to digest.
2) Perfect Balance of Essential Fatty Acids: Hemp seed contains an ideal balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, in a proportion of 3:1. These fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the body but are required to support a wide range of cellular processes in the body, including the proper function of the heart and brain. Hemp seed is an even more potent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than flaxseed, which is renowned as a health food staple.
3) Tons of Nutrients: Hemp seeds are also an excellent source of vitamin E, zinc, iron, and magnesium. Vitamin E and zinc are potent antioxidants that protects cells against the damaging effect of free radicals. Iron helps deliver oxygen-rich red blood cells throughout the body and magnesium plays a role in hundreds of chemical reactions in the body.
4) Heart-Healthy: A 2013 study published in the European Journal of Nutrition found that hemp seed consumption could reduce elevated blood pressure in hypertensive rats. The research suggests that hemp seeds may offer benefits to prevent and treat hypertension.
Taste and Uses of Hemp Seeds
Hemp seeds have a pleasant nutty taste and crunchy texture. Snack on the raw seeds throughout the day, toss them into salads or substitute them for nuts in your favorite baking recipes. If you’re looking for an alternative to dairy milk, try blending one part hemp seed with four parts water to mix up your own hemp milk. You can even buy whole hemp seeds to make your own soothing skin care solution–try grinding the seeds into paste with a mortar and pestle and mixing it with other natural skin care substances like aloe vera gel or our raw organic cacao butter.

Uttrakhand is a beautiful little state in the foothills of Himalaya. Though it is unimaginably beautiful, its air unpolluted, its rivers full with water yet perennial gloom lurks in the background. Life in the hills is very tough. There are no industries, no jobs, and no infrastructure so it has seen mass migration to cities.
Nearly 2000 villages have no inhabitants as people have migrated to cities in search of jobs and opportunities
Once thriving villages are filled with old people, women and children and are dependent on Government aid or money from their family members in cities. This is creating unbalanced families and unbalanced societies.
People in the villages have left farming as animals destroy their crops or there are not irrigation facilities. A miniscule percentage of the farmers does farming but due to lack of market linkage they are not able to see their products. 80% of agricultural land is unused in these hilly districts. We want to create cottage industries around hemp and hemp products by promoting farming on these divine land which is full of nectar.
The hemp grown in this pristine land which has never used pesticide make this magical plant almost divine. Hemp is not destroyed by animals, takes little water, does not use and pesticides, can create thousands of allied industries around its product. We don’t only train these farmers, give them know how, get them licenses but we also connect to the markets around the world.
We already have met more than 500 farmers and motivated them to resume farming by growing hemp. We try to remove their misconception about which often times is very difficult. We promise them to buy all their crops at a fair price at their place which are often very remote and these farmers have no means of transportation to travel to distant markets to sell their products. Your every purchase directly or indirectly helps us create more opportunities for these hardworking people.
These People Need Us. Join the Right Cause
Last but not the least, we are not doing anything new. These people used to grow hemp for centuries but misconception and legality made them leave their traditional crop. There is a tremendous amount of traditional knowledge present about hemp in old generation. They used to make clothing, ropes, craft, food so many things but we made them forget everything forcibly and now when the world awakens to the benefits of hemp, these older generation must be thinking what their fault was. Why did we destroy their livelihood, who will pay for the ignorance? Ignorance destroyed entire generations. We want to resettle them, rebuild these villages, and unite the families. We want beautiful cottage and allied industries. Jobs and prosperity where only sadness and loneliness prevails now.
Every single seed you buy from us has grown in the most pristine environment of earth and nurtured by pious and pure rivers like Ganga as near it source. We don’t want to demean our produce by calling it industrial hemp but we call it Himalayan hemp for its nutrition’s purity and grade..
