Therefore, although a person is very unlikely to test positive on a drug test from eating hemp seeds, those who are recovering from cannabis addiction—with a goal of avoiding all exposure to THC— may want to avoid eating the whole hemp seeds, and opt for hemp hearts instead.
Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) is cultivated for making a wide range of products including foods, health products, fabric, rope, natural remedies, and much more. The various parts of the hemp plant are used to make different products.
The seeds of hemp are edible and are considered highly nutritious with a high concentration of soluble and insoluble fiber, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for heart health and skin health.

Hemp Oil Benefits For Pain The cannabidiol (CBD) present in Hemp Oil is popular for the treatment and management of pain. In fact, doctors have in the recent past recommended it in place of the usual painkillers. It is also recommended for use by those suffering from severe pains.

It is easy to use, yet extremely effective in the treatment and management of both normal and chronic pain.
