Cannabis can be embraced via a number of methods- oils, tinctures, smoking, vaping, edibles, topicals, etc; however, one common way of consumption that many tend to forget about is seeds.
In this post, we’ll take a look at a few health benefits of cannabis seeds. So without further ado:
1) Cardiovascular health
Cannabis seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which help in the production of nitric oxide in our body. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to relax and dilate, which lowers blood pressure.
Furthermore, the seeds are rich in gamma-linoleic acid, which helps in reducing proteins that can lead to inflammation in the heart and its surrounding areas.
The most important thing to ensure a healthy digestive system is to consume enough of roughage (fiber). Sativa seeds are a rich source of the same and thus if constipation has been bugging you for a long time, look no further than cannabis seeds.
You may have already heard about the benefits of cannabis (CBD) for skin a countless number of times by now. We too couldn’t help but reiterate the same again.
The fatty acids in cannabis seeds can help fight skin dryness, inflammation and itchiness. A number of studies are being carried out to see if consuming cannabis seeds can help treat skin conditions such as dermatitis and eczema.
4) Reducing Pre-menstrual syndrome and menopause symptoms
The stress — both physical and mental — that women experience during their PMS is usually because of their sensitivity to prolactin.
Research has shown that the gamma-linolenic acid in cannabis seeds aids in the production of prostaglandin E1, which may counter the effects that a woman may experience from prolactin.
So there you have it, folks! From seeds and roots to buds and leaves, there isn’t any part of the marijuana plant that doesn’t have any health benefits. Truly, a wonder drug! (apparently).
