HAVE YOU HEARD OF HELLED HEMP SATIVA? LET’S FIND OUT WHAT IT IS AND WHY IT MIGHT MAKE SENSE TO USE IT
If you have often heard of hulled sativa hemp, but still don’t know what it is, you will be surprised to know that this name is actually nothing more than an alternative way of calling hulled hemp seeds, i.e. the seeds without their shell.
What are the characteristics and benefits of these particular foods?
Is it true that they are rich in nutrients and proteins?
In this article we will tell you about the benefits and contraindications of sativa hemp seeds, how it is preferable to use them and much more…
What is hulled hemp sativa?
As we mentioned in the introduction, this definition refers to hulled hemp seeds.
These are small seeds mostly coming from dwarf CBD weed plants which, after harvesting, are carefully selected, cleaned and stripped of their shells.
By eliminating the hard outer shell of the seeds, we obtain the heart: soft, easy to use and characterized by an excellent taste (similar to hazelnut).
Hulled hemp sativa: properties and benefits
If we’ve been hearing a lot about hemp seeds lately, it’s because these little foods have proven to be very precious.
It may seem incredible to you but, even if hulled seeds have only recently become widespread in the UK, in reality their consumption dates back to more than two thousand years ago.
Let’s find out why they are so popular.
Consuming hemp seeds regularly means integrating your protein intake and strengthening your immune system, nervous system, muscular system and circulatory system. And not only.
It seems that the consumption of these superfoods can also influence the correct functioning of the hormonal system.
The seeds collected from light hemp plants, in fact, are rich in:
essential amino acids.
Hemp seeds contain all eight amino acids essential for the proper functioning of the human body (leucine, methionine, tryptophan, isoleucine, leucine, valine, phenylalanine and lysine). This is probably the main characteristic that differentiates hulled hemp seeds from many other foods of plant origin, and which makes them perfect for supplementing protein levels for all those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet;
vitamins and mineral salts.
Consuming these precious foods means filling up on vitamins (such as vitamin E and group B vitamins) and minerals (such as magnesium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc).
Hemp seeds have excellent values of unsaturated fats (especially omega-3 and omega-6). These are good fats, useful for the correct functioning of the body and to prevent the onset of diseases of the cardiovascular system or pathologies such as diabetes and atherosclerosis.
Hulled hemp seeds and contraindications
To fully understand these foods, in addition to the positive aspects, it is important to also know the cases in which it would be better to avoid them.
The main contraindication to their intake, for obvious reasons, is allergy to hemp plants.
Even for those suffering from gastrointestinal tract pathologies, it is not recommended to introduce seeds obtained from CBD cannabis into their diet.
The reason is because the seeds are rich in fiber and oils which could cause symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps and stomach pain.
Finally, the consumption of these foods is contraindicated for those taking anticoagulants, and in the phase before and after surgery. In fact, taking large quantities of hemp seeds could delay blood clotting.
How do you eat hulled hemp seeds?
There are various ways to consume hulled hemp sativa.
To keep all the nutritional properties of hemp seeds unchanged, it is ideal to consume them raw.
You can add them to yogurt, salads, fruit and vegetable smoothies; or, again without cooking, you can use them to garnish soups and velouté dishes.
Hemp seeds, however, are also excellent when cooked.
You can try adding them to bread, cake or pizza dough; or you can mix them with the other ingredients of your favorite meatballs or burgers. We also remind you that CBD oils also exists, a product with benefits for your body that you can conveniently use for your recipes!
