We know Cannabis hemp as the Biblical ‘tree of life’ to heal all the nations. Like Paul always reminds us, it’s too valuable to be under the jurisdiction of the government and prohibited for “we the people”. Right now only ‘dead’ sterile hempseeds are allowed in the USA. Hopefully our case will end that extinctionistic prohibition in the next 90 days.
George Washington reportedly harvested 157 bushels of hempseed his first year out of 34 continuous years of growing it. A bushel was approximately 35 pounds, enough for one man to carry it. He used Cannabis hemp as a CASH CROP; he proudly grew, possessed and distributed it, the very same things we’re charged with – only he did it on a MUCH larger scale.
x 35 pounds per bushel
= 5,495 pounds of harvested hempseeds
Imagine how happy and healthy the chickens and ducks – and people – must have been on that farm! They were likely eating some of the best, organic hempseeds which made for the tastiest eggs and meat for George and his family and their slave workers. I wonder if the cows and cattle and hogs were fed the hempseeds and the hemp leaves? Likely so. Some day I want to get into his farm journals and diaries to find out the details. Until then …
We all deserve the best organic foods on Earth, starting with fresh, fertile hempseeds, leaves and flowers. And so it is.
All the best food to everyone!

HEMP SEED NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION
8 COMMENTS PRINT
Dec 6, 2010 | By Pamela Gentry
Hemp seeds are a valuable source of nutrition for many reasons, according to a 2010 study by researchers at Canada’s Institute of Cardiovascular Science. Derived from the cannibis sativa plant, hemp seeds have no psychotropic effects. Although not legal to cultivate in the US, hemp seeds which are harvested abroad can be purchased at many whole food retailers. Dietary studies of hemp seed have focused primarily on their nutritional value to animals. Hemp seeds have a rich nutrient profile containing fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
Hemp seeds also contain polyunsaturated fats, known as PUFAs, which are nutritionally favored over saturated fats and may be useful for disease prevention. They are rich in essential fatty acids, with a significant concentration of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, both of which are proven to be vital to cardiovascular health. Hemp seeds are particularly rich in alpha and gamma linolenic acid. According to MayoClinic.com, regular consumption of foods and supplements containing these compounds have been shown to reduce blood triglyceride levels, lower blood pressure and lower the risk of heart disease. These compounds also help to reduce pain and inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis and may help prevent conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Hemp seeds are particularly high in phosphorous, with 1,160 mg per 100 g serving. They also contain a significant amount of potassium at 859 mg per serving. Hemp seeds also contain calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese. Sodium can also be found in hemp seeds in relatively low amounts of about 12 mg per serving.
Hemp seeds have a strong concentration of vitamin E, with 90 mg of vitamin E per serving. They also contain a significant amount of vitamins A and D. Hemp seeds also contain vitamins C, B-6, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin.
PROTEIN AND FIBER
Containing almost as much protein as soybeans, hemp seeds provide a healthy, vegetarian source of protein. Hemp seeds contain about 25 g of protein per 100 g serving and about 28 g of fiber. Foods rich in fiber help the stomach feel full and help sweep out toxins from the colon. This same amount contains 567 calories and 28 g of carbohydrates.
Containing all of the essential amino acids, hemp seeds are particularly rich in the amino acid, arginine. According to MayoClinic.com, arginine is used by the body to remove toxic ammonia. Arginine is also needed to make creatine, and changes into nitric oxide in the body.. As this transformation occurs, blood vessels become relaxed. For this reason, arginine may be useful in combating conditions such as vascular headaches, erectile dysfunction and coronary artery disease. Eating hemp seeds provides 3 g of arginine per serving.

THE VITAMINS IN HEMP SEED
Jun 16, 2011 | By Sage Kalmus
Hemp seeds don’t contain a great deal of vitamins per serving, partly because a serving is small. In fact, you would have to eat about a pound of hemp seeds in order to get your Recommended Daily Allowance of any of the vitamins they contains. What’s more, the heat process used to sterilize hemp seeds before sale diminishes their vitamin content. Nonetheless, the vitamin content in hemp seeds, even sterilized, is comparable to that of other whole grains.
WHOLE VS. SHELLED HEMP SEEDS
Some of the vitamin content in hemp seeds is located in the shell, which means that shelled or hulled hemp seeds, also known as hemp seed nuts or hemp hearts, contain a different concentration, usually less, of those vitamins. For example, according to a comparison of nutrition facts provided by Hemp Traders, the hull of the hemp seed contains about .4 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams while the nut contains 1 mg per 100 grams.
A potent antioxidant also known as retinol, vitamin A is important for strong vision and aids in the growth of soft and skeletal tissue such as the skin, mucous membranes and teeth. Whole hemp seed contains about 37.5 IU per gram of vitamin A while the hemp nut contains only about 4 IU per 100 grams.
According to the European Industrial Hemp Association, 100 grams of shelled hemp seeds contain 90 percent of the recommended daily value (DV) of vitamin B1, or thiamine, and B5, or pantothenic acid, as well as 30 percent of the DV of B3, or niacin.
You get most of your vitamin D from sunlight and dairy products, but hemp seeds do contain a small portion of it as well: approximately 10 IU or less per 100 grams of whole seeds. Some hemp nuts have been fortified with vitamin D, such as those from Hemp Traders, which contain 2,277.5 IU per 100 grams. Vitamin D is important in building bones, strengthening the immune system and reducing the risk of certain diseases, like cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
Hemp seed has some vitamin E, with 100 grams containing 20 percent of the DV. In a 2008 “Critical Review of Clinical Laboratory Science” report, the authors described vitamin E’s antioxidant properties and its subsequent benefits in preventing heart disease. According to the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements, vitamin E also functions as an anti-inflammatory and immune system enhancer and may help protect against cancer, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline.
