Plant-based proteins are in general easier to digest than animal-based proteins. Marijuana seeds contain natural proteins which are a healthier source to use in everyday life.

Being a rich source of protein, it provides all the essential amino acids necessary for a healthy living. They can help people suffering from immune deficiency diseases.

Consuming fibre every day can promote your gut health and reduce appetite.


3 - Unsaturated Fats


Marijuana seeds provide essential fatty acids, like alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). The human body cannot naturally produce essential fatty acids, and so the body must absorb them from the foods we consume. These are vital for organ health and overall physical well-being. Omega-3 and Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) can help lower bad cholesterol and supports cell growth. The total fat consumption should be no more than 25% to 30% a day. PUFAs are found in other plant and animal foods, such as vegetable oil, salmon, chia seeds, walnuts, etc. People who follow a restricted diet, due to health reasons, and cannot consume some of these, can opt for marijuana seeds as a vital source for unsaturated fats.


4 - Treat Anxiety and Depression

5 - Brain Health


Another benefit of these nutrient-filled seeds is that these are great supplements of antioxidants. Clinical studies, by the King’s College London, reveals that marijuana extract helps reset brain function in psychosis. A single dose of cannabidiol or CBD, a dominant chemical compound of marijuana can reduce brain function abnormalities. CBD has potential properties to help neurological conditions, like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, neuropathic pain, or epilepsy.


6 - Skin Health


Chronic inflammation leads to acne and atopic dermatitis. The deficiency of omega-3 acids can be the reason causing different skin conditions. As already stated, marijuana contains high omega-3s, which can help reduce acne symptoms. Also, cannabinoids in marijuana seeds trigger biochemical reactions in the body. This protects our skin from different dermatological conditions. A recent study showed that the inclusion of marijuana seeds in the diet reduces skin diseases. You can either include them in your food or use the seed’s oil as a natural treatment for your skin. Try incorporating them with your face pack.

Heart disease is taking a toll on peoples’ lives. A number of deaths occur as a result of a stroke. Seeking a solution for it leads us surprisingly to marijuana. Although there are contradictory studies on the impact of the herb on heart health, that depends on the quantity of consumption. The benefit lies in the fact that marijuana seeds are good sources of amino acid arginine. When these enter the body, it turns into nitric oxide (NO). Nitric Oxide support blood circulation and relaxes the blood vessels, thus improving heart health. If you have tried shatter, also try the seeds as a healthier option of experiencing the herb.

Studies show that a balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids influences the body’s inflammatory responses. Furthermore, these polyunsaturated fats help reduce risks of cardiovascular disease, depression, or neuro-degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Nevertheless, these potentially have great anti-inflammatory effects.
