Did you know that hemp was one of the first plants humans cultivated? These seeds contain several minerals and vitamins like potassium, vitamin E and magnesium. Hemp seeds contain almost as much protein as soybeans. We find most of hemp's benefits in its high omega-3 content, which contributes to brain health and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease in lowering bad cholesterol levels. In addition, omega-3s are also known for their anti-inflammatory properties.
