Dietary Hemp Seeds More Effectively Attenuate Disorders in Genetically Obese Rats than Their Lipid Fraction.
Dietary hemp seeds more effectively attenuate metabolic disorders in genetically obese rats than the oil extracted from them, which suggests that the lipid fraction is only partly responsible for these effects. Expand


Hempseed as a nutritional resource: An overview
Hempseed has been used to treat various disorders for thousands of years in traditional oriental medicine, and recent clinical trials have identified hempseed oil as a functional food, and animal feeding studies demonstrate the long-standing utility of hempseed as an important food resource. Expand
Hemp seed oil: A source of valuable essential fatty acids
Hemp seed shares with no other plant resource, both a high content of easily digestible complete protein and a rich endowment of oil providing a favorable ratio of the linoleic and linolenic essential fatty acids required for proper human nutrition. Expand
Evaluating the quality of protein from hemp seed (Cannabis sativa L.) products through the use of the protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score method.
The macronutrient composition and the quality of protein of hemp seed and products derived from hemp seed grown in Western Canada were determined. Thirty samples of hemp products (minimum 500 g),Expand
The Composition of Hemp Seed Oil and Its Potential as an Important Source of Nutrition
The fatty acid and natural product content of hemp seed oil was analyzed by GC-MS and LC-MS, and trace amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) were also detected. Expand
Relationship between cannabinoids content and composition of fatty acids in hempseed oils.
The results of this study confirm that hempseed oil is a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially γ-linolenic and stearidonic acid, but the content varies a lot more than the omega-6/omega-3 ratio. Expand
Screening of the antiradical action of vegetable oils
Abstract Information on radical scavenging activity (RSA) and antioxidant potential of vegetable oils are not reported, or reporting has been rather limited. Such data is of importance for theExpand
Seed composition of ten industrial hemp cultivars approved for production in Canada
Abstract The objective of this study was to determine the seed chemical composition of ten industrial hemp cultivars grown in Quebec. The fatty acid and tocopherol composition, as well as theExpand
The Genetic Structure of Marijuana and Hemp
It is shown that marijuana and hemp are significantly differentiated at a genome-wide level, demonstrating that the distinction between these populations is not limited to genes underlying THC production, and that marijuana strain names often do not reflect a meaningful genetic identity. Expand
Variability in Antinutritional Compounds in Hempseed Meal of Italian and French Varieties
The use of hempseed flours in the animal diets may be limited by the presence of antinutritive compounds. The content of phytic acid, condensed tannins, trypsin inhibitors, cyanogenic glycosides andExpand
Impact of nutrients and food components on dyslipidemias: what is the evidence?
From a review of the literature on foods and bioactive compounds, their recommended quantities, and expected effects, it is found that the following nutrients and food components could positively impact the lipid profile: monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, soluble fiber, vegetable proteins, phytosterols, and polyphenols.
