Industrial hemp has been a nutritional supplement throughout the ages, and has been known to cure or treat numerous diseases and conditions.
As I stated in a previous post, we are a nation of inflammation. Inflammatory diseases and conditions have been on the rise for decades. One common inflammatory condition that is prevalent is Crohn’s disease.
Crohn’s is a bowel disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. Symptoms include severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, and possibly malnutrition. The inflammation spreads deep into the tissue and can be quite debilitating. There is no known ‘cure’, but there are many therapies, including nutritive therapy.
Hemp seed and hemp seed oil are ‘demulcents’, which means they have emollient properties.
Demulcents (in this case hemp seed and hemp seed oil) soothe and protect intestinal membranes, especially mucus membranes, which are affected by Crohn’s.
Hemp seed has a high concentration of oil, and is an excellent source of Omega fatty acids.
For those suffering from Crohn’s, adding hemp to the diet may decrease the agonizing symptoms, while at the same time providing excellent nutrition (protein, amino acids, calcium, Omega fatty acids, to name a few).
