What is hemp protein? Let’s start with the basics

The practical benefits of cannabis powder

Hemp protein is extracted from the small ‘miracle’ seeds; the wonderful hemp seeds. They are the single most bio available protein for the human digestive system!
If you’re into bodybuilding and lifting weights, and even if you don’t care much about health but just wants to see quick results, I have good news for you as well.
10 grams of hemp protein powder is more anabolic than 30 grams of whey protein!
And women don’t let this scare you away..!! As long as you don’t do a lot of heavy weight lifting, you will only benefit from taking hemp protein. Your skin nails and your overall health, vitality, energy and well-being will thank you. There aren’t really any known side effects related to hemp protein. None have ever been reported that is.
Please do feel free to leave a comment, in the event that you should ever experience any side effects!
Have you noticed that hemp protein powder is often labelled ‘organic’?
An example of what hemp powder looks like
That’s because the hemp plant is in fact a weed that almost grows itself and keeps popping out of the earth year after year. That is also one of the major reasons why I recommend hemp protein so highly to all my clients, readers, family and friends. Heck I even got my own brother to replace his old whey shake with the one on the picture to the left, which is also one of my favourite by the way.
Hemp protein is natures best protein. It’s as simple as that!
It contains all the EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids), it’s rich in minerals and high soluble fibers and that makes hemp protein the perfect building blocks for rebuilding all cells in our body.
This is probably the only ‘side effects’ of hemp protein powder
The first comment I receive almost EVERY time I tell people about hemp protein powder sounds something like this “I didn’t know you were a drug addict..” – guess what.. I’M NOT!!
Hemp and Marijuana are like day and night. They have absolutely nothing in common except that they both come from the same species of plant, Cannabis Sativa L.. BUT from different varieties. You could compare that with dogs, where you have the Chihuahuas and St. Bernards – they are both dogs, but each others opposites.
Hemp is the male plant, and doesn’t contain any THC (Δ9- tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive chemical that makes people who smoke Marijuana ‘wasted’. The female plant however does have these attributes.

Some basic things about THC

Actually hemp does contain ridiciously low amounts of THC really not worth mentioning, since you’d have to extract a whole rainforrest of THC from hemp, just to smoke 1 single joint. I just felt like mentioning it to you. Not that it makes any difference, but now you know.
USA is the leading nation most of the time, but they’re seriously trailing in this category!
Well you must be wondering why hemp is illigal to grow inside the US, while most other regions in the world, like ex. Canada allow it. Really it makes no sense at all, since you’re still allowed to buy all sorts of hemp food products (hemp oil, powder, milk, seeds, etc) inside the US. Isn’t that contradicting?
This farce is caused by a aggresive, and not very detailed, war / policy against the drug lords. But it’s certainly also because the hemp plant, as a resource, is a direct threat to the synthetic fiber- and the fossil fuel industry and big energy corporations. Naturally, with tremendous amounts of money involved there are great interests in keeping hemp as far away from the public as possible, without making it too obvious. If you think this is nothing more than conspiracy theories you’re part right, but just think about it for a second. If you look back in history, in some regions of the world, hemp was actually THE most important food resource. I’ll write more about the ancient past of hemp in a later blog post, I have already written several articles on the subject.

Let’s summarize the information about hemp

Nonetheless, hemp food products represents a completely legal, ethical, eco- and health friendly industry, which actually might just be one of the fastest growing industries and trends in the whole world right now. People really has become curious. They now question authority and the mainstream beliefs in general. And with global access to the internet, the truth is not easily hidden anymore. All it takes is for people to as themselves ‘what is hemp protein?’, go to google, search and the next moment they end up here, hopefully starting to open their eyes to the wonderful world of organic hemp protein foods, oils and powders.
Just watch the wide array of products popping up! Hemp really can save our planet!
People’s perception of the hemp plant is starting to gain momentum and shift, since both industrial hemp as well as Cannabis Sativa are getting more and more attention, due to the climate changes and crisis we’re in.
Some politicians and scientists have already started to recognize the potential (or once again, I should say) that yet lies dorment in the hemp plant. Both in regards to the health benefits of hemp protein and oils, the fibers for clothing, and of course industrial agriculture for growing weeds for fuel.
