SummaryThe seed of Cannabis sativa L. has been an important source of nutrition for thousands of years in Old World cultures. Non-drug varieties of Cannabis, commonly referred to as hemp, have not been studied extensively for their nutritional potential in recent years, nor has hempseed been utilized to any great extent by the industrial processes and food markets that have developed during the 20th century. Technically a nut, hempseed typically contains over 30% oil and about 25% protein, with… Expand

Hemp seed oil: A source of valuable essential fatty acids
TLDR
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
Hemp as Food at High Latitudes
TLDR
Hempseed could become a viable replacement for imported soya in Northern Europe, particularly as feed stock for animals. Expand

TLDR
Alpha-linolenic acid, found in green leafy vegetables, flaxseed, rapeseed, and walnuts, desaturates and elongates in the human body to EPA and DHA and by itself may have beneficial effects in health and in the control of chronic diseases. Expand
Evaluating the impact of hemp food consumption on workplace drug tests.
TLDR
These concentrations appear to be sufficiently low to prevent confirmed positives from the extended and extensive consumption of hemp foods, and are now typical in Canadian hemp seed products. Expand

These findings indicate that future attention will have to focus on the adequate provision of DHA which can reliably be achieved only with the supply of the preformed long-chain metabolite. Expand
The effect of feeding hemp seed meal to laying hens
TLDR
No significant differences were found between feed treatments for egg production, feed consumption, feed efficiency, body weight change or egg quality, and increasing dietary inclusion of HSM produced eggs with lower concentrations of palmitic acid and higher concentrations of linoleic and α-linolenic acids.
