Yes! You Can Cook With Hemp

Yes, You Can Cook With Hemp

Many consider hemp as the ultimate crop grown and harvested today. Its versatility makes it possible for hemp to be used in nearly countless ways and in so many different applications. Hemp is used to produce myriad commercial and industrial products, such as rope, textiles, clothing, shoes, food, paper, bioplastics, insulation, and biofuel. 

The most beneficial—and profitable—use for hemp is as a food source. Both hemp oil and seeds are an amazing superfood. They are high in Vitamin E, fiber, protein and contain Omega fatty acids—specifically, in a 3:1 ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6. This ratio is widely acknowledged to be optimum for the human body.

If you’re not impressed by the list above, then also consider that hemp oil can also lower cholesterol, improve skin problems, and help with digestion. The following sections show you how you can effectively blend hemp into your diet.

A reminder: 

Don’t heat hempseed oil! The best way to use and consume 

the oil is either cold pressed or at room temperature.


Sprinkle hemp seeds on salads or fold them into a pesto or hummus for healthy texture and a bit of crunch.

Add hemp seed oil to any kind of salad dressing or mix. You can also mix it with citrus fruits and something sweet. Now you have a well-balanced dressing that will complement any combination of fruits. Other tasty add-ons are honey mustard, miso, and tart vinegars if you like. 


Make a smoothie even more healthy and beneficial simply by adding CBD and hemp oil. Hemp contains all 20 amino acids! That includes 9 amino acids that our bodies cannot produce. Hemp oil is great for a pre-workout smoothie, and tart berries (blackberries, cranberries, or strawberries) are a delightful and healthy addition.

What is CBD? What is Cannabidiol?


Cannabidiol is a molecule that naturally occurs in the cannabis (a.k.a. hemp) plant. CBD and other substances extracted from the hemp plant have medicinal properties, but they do not cause the user to feel the short-term euphoric feeling of being “high” that is universally associated with smoking marijuana.

Many websites incorrectly state that CBD is not psychoactive (or psychotropic) when they actually mean that CBD does not make a person feel high. However, the molecule does “affect the brain,” which is the very definition of “psychoactive.”

For instance, CBD is known to increase the baseline dopamine levels in the brain, which helps treat depression. To be clear, CBD and other naturally occurring molecules in the cannabis must be defined as “psychoactive,” because they do, in fact, affect the brain; however, they do not make a person buzzed, chill, high, stoned, or any other euphemism used to describe an altered state. Therefore, the potential for abuse of CBD is near zero.

“Full-spectrum CBD” products include not only CBD, but also many, most, or all of the over 100 other chemical compounds that are produced by this plant. Collectively these compounds are known as cannabinoids. Of them, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well known, being responsible for the high experienced by marijuana users.  Most interestingly, when full-spectrum complex’s are ingested, one molecule will act as a catalyst to a different molecule (occurring naturally in the hemp plant) to combine and create complex scaffoldings of of entirely new compounds.

The long-and-short of it is that CBD is one chemical compound naturally occurring in the cannabis plant. Full-spectrum CBD oils contain most or all of the other cannabinoids including some amount of THC unless otherwise indicated.

Merriam-Webster says:

a crystalline, nonintoxicating cannabinoid C21H30O2 found in cannabis and hemp that is sometimes used medicinally.

UN Recommends Removal of CBD from Schedule IV under Convention of Narcotic Drugs

CBD and Hemp Oil CBD Products Recommended by Rx-420.com ARE Non-GMO Organic Laboratory Tested 100% US Made

The WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) recommended to the United Nations Secretary-General that pure CBD should not be scheduled at all within the UN International Drug Control Conventions. This recommendation comes almost a year after the committee agreed to review the matter. The committee further recommends that preparations containing predominantly cannabidiol and not more than .02% THC should not be under international control.

It is great news for those finding relief from the use of CBD products that the world’s leading health authority believes that CBD should not be a controlled product. This applies to the vast majority of the products that we have reviewed in our research. Many states have adopted a slightly higher threshold for legal THC content at .03%, but a vast array of products meet the stricter guideline set by the UN.

These recommendations reaffirm the safety and low likelihood of abuse of or addiction to cannabinoids
