Celebrate hemp!

Went to the bioshop today and it was fun as always:
Had some crazy discussions with fellow bio-people
and i'm starting to believe that they are a breed on it's own ( in a positive way )
Most of the times very polite and patient , and "hey try the seaweedterrine " handy tips ,
sharing their hairbeads and strings with you + whatever goes on inside their minds

This time : hemp is so great!!! says the guy next to me while i'm in search of my delicious hemp burgers
You see , sold out again! " uhuh " i said " hmm something else something else...ah
my bermudaburger
I mean is there anything you can't do with hemp "....."
They make food of it, oil, clothing.... you can smoke it
Hey sister do you have any hashish right now? " o_O "

Couldn't quite work out why he didn't believe me when i said no
He kept looking puzzled at me the whole time
I quess the man really needed his hashish more than i did my hemp burger

But it got me thinking
Maybe i should read something about hemp eating
and as it turns's highly nutritive:
It has the highest Edestin content: the most digestible types of all protein substances and
The richest content of Essential Amino Acids
In fact Hemp seeds or hemp food is also the most nutritious food because of its content:

Vitamins: Carotene (Vit. A) Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin(B2), Pyridoxine (B6), Niacin (B3), Vitamin C, Vitamin D,Vitamin E.
Minerals: Hemp seed contains some 37 minerals, including Calcium and Iron, Boron, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper and Manganese.

This makes hemp even more healthier than soy and seitan
The other health benefits?
Healthy cholesterol levels
Lower blood pressure
Decreasing the risk of clots in arteries
Reducing & treating dry skin and hair conditions
Loosing weight naturally.
it is produced chemical-free
Hempseeds for hemp foods or hemp oil come from varieties of Cannabis Sativa that contain THC ( low levels ) a type psychoactive element presents in this plant.
