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.
