Hemp: The Natural Cure
by Jessica Napoli
There have been various reported uses for the hemp plant throughout
history. From Fabric and rope to concrete and modern day
injection-molded plastics humans have utilized the entire plant for our
needs, but one of the most over looked comes from its seed. The Seed, or
“Nut” has grown in popularity not only as a nutritional food but for
medicinal purposes. China in particular has had an extremely close
relationship with the hemp seeds medicinal values and ancient Chinese
write dating back to well over 5000 years ago confirm that the Hemp
plant was cultivated specifically for its Seeds. Whatever form it is
used in (oil, powder, infusion, paste, or whole), it was a necessary
ingredient in many formulas.
Medical Uses:
According to medicinal text, the Chinese believe that hemp seeds have
the following medicinal properties which are used as a (n):

  • Childbirth: Childbirth, hemp seed is believed to
    speed up the labor process when it is complicated or overdue. It is also
    used for postpartum recovery, blood deficiency, and for feverish
    episodes as well as used to increase the flow of milk in post partum
    mothers.
  • Anathematic: it helps destroy and repel parasites,
    including ringworm and pin worm.
  • Antiseptic: It prevents bacterial growth, inhibits
    pathogens and counters sepsis.
  • Diuretic: It increases blood flow through the
    kidney and bladder, thus increasing urination.
  • Treatment for:

    • Dysentery, but not diarrhea because it loosens and relaxes muscles,
      allowing or stimulating evacuation of the bowels.
    • Constipation, mostly in the elderly. In China, today, hemp seed oil
      is the most commonly prescribed remedy for constipation.
    • Obstinate vomiting
    • Edema and waste accumulation in the Lymph



It is also used as a natural herbal supplement to promote overall
health and well being.
It is important to keep in mind that the seed from hemp plants does
not contain any THC (Tetrahydrocannabino) the active drug in Marijuana.
Though there has been and continues to be studies on the medicinal
properties of Marijuana – the hemp seed is often overlooked. But if you
take a look at the nutritional benefits in the hemp seed it is easy to
see why it could very well be very, very good for you.
The Good Fat
Of the many foods today, hemp seeds have the most perfect ratio of
the essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids( unsaturated
fatty acids.) In published studies, omega-3 was found useful in treating
these conditions:

  • Abnormal brain and eye development
  • Abnormal development in infants and children
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Asthma
  • ADHD
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Birth complications
  • Breast cancer
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Colon Cancer
  • Eczema
  • Emphysema
  • Excessive thirst

The list goes on and on…
So, increasing Fatty Acid consumption can help treat and even prevent
these conditions. Two recent studies, confirmed that consumption of
omega-3 helped reduce depression in patients where antidepressants had
previously failed.
One study showed that it is important to take vitamin E with omega-3
in order to prevent oxidization. Though most of these studies used
omega-3 from fish or flaxseed oil, it is the opinion of most that using
hemp oil is healthier and more natural because there are no harmful
chemicals found in hemp as there are in fish.
Omega-6 fatty acid deficiency’s can result in
disorders such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Behavior disturbances
  • Infections
  • Miscarriages
  • Reduced sperm motility and impotence in men
  • Slow growth
  • Slow wound healing
  • Skin diseases

Due to the relation between hemp seed and the essential fatty acids,
omega-3 and omega-6, it is agreed in eastern medicine as well as modern
medicine that hemp seed and all of its derivatives are a natural way to
live a healthy life. It is also agreed that hemp seed oil can be a
natural cure or a natural preventative to many of the diseases or
illnesses that plague many societies today.

Thanks for this info. I eat a handful everyday and it helps me keep my MS symptoms at bay together with herbal cannabis. It sort of rebalances the compounds available within cannabis and I prefer a more medicinal balance. Skunk has just got too much THC!

I think I might have to try some myself.

Its a shame that all there facts are not correct, for example:
Quote :
hemp plants does
not contain any THC (Tetrahydrocannabino)

What is should say is "cannabis seeds do not contain THC".
