You can buy hemp oil, also known as hempseed oil, and use it for its medicinal properties. This oil is manufactured from Cannabis sativa, but again, it does not contain a significant amount of THC. To manufacture hemp oil , the seeds are cleaned in order to remove 99.99% of impurities.
It’s possible that there will be trace amounts of THC in hemp oil, but it would not be enough to cause any significant change or feeling. The hemp seeds go through a process called “cold pressing,” which is essentially the process of pushing the seeds through an extruder and collecting the natural oil from the seeds. The oil at this point is virgin oil, and this is the oil that has all of the medicinal properties. You might also find refined hemp oil, but that is very light in color, has almost no flavor, and doesn’t have the natural fats and minerals. This oil is used for body care products and as industrial lubricants, plastic, fuel, or paint. Virgin, or unrefined, hemp oil is praised for its high levels of fatty acids. You already know that the oil contains Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, but you probably don’t know that the ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 acids in hemp oil is the exact ratio that is required by the human body. Our bodies do not make these fatty acids naturally, so we have to get it from food sources, such as hempseed oil.
There are also studies of hempseed oil that could have it manufactured on a much larger scape as it is a candidate for the production of biodiesel fuel. 2 Worldwide, Cannabis Seeds are Used for Spiritual Purposes. Across the world, cultures use cannabis seeds for a number of spiritual purposes. For instance, some people who practice the Taoist religion believe that hemp seeds, when mixed with ginseng, can help people to see the future. The Taoists also believe that if you eat hempseeds on their own, you can keep demons from entering into your life. Cannabis seeds are also used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is also used as a sedative , to help with pain relief, to treat nausea, and to help with nervousness. Other cultures, such as those who follow the Sikh religion, forbid the ingestion of hemp seeds. However, they use the hemp seeds in a special drink that is consumed by Sikhs. This drink, called “bhang,” is an edible form of cannabis that is made during certain festivities throughout the year. People who follow the Hindu religion also drink “bhang.” In Poland, cannabis seeds are used during the Christmas holiday in a traditional soup recipe. The soup, called Siemieniotka, is made for the Christmas Eve dinner. The seeds are cooked, pulled from their shells and then ground into a paste. That hemp paste is then mixed with honey and milk before eating. This is part of the ancient traditions of the people of Poland and dates back to the time before Christianity was introduced. Like many Christmas time traditions, originally, this was part of pagan celebrations. 1 The Dutch Explorers Took Cannabis Seeds With Them on Their Journeys. You also probably didn’t know that the Dutch explorers, during the Golden Age of exploration, was also considered to be the golden age of hemp. In general, this occurred throughout the 17 th century. This was the time where the Dutch had great improvements in science, trade, art, and military, and they became one of the world’s superpower. By this point, the Dutch possessed several colonies in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. They also founded the Dutch East India Company, which helped to establish a worldwide shipping trade…and here’s where hemp comes into play. Holland was one of the largest nations in the world that relied on the sea, and this, they needed hemp, which was the main way they built ships, thanks to the strength of the hemp ropes and other products. In addition to wood, hemp was the most needed product when it came to shipbuilding. In fact, a replica of a 17 th century Dutch ship, called the “Batavia,” used more than 13 miles of hemp rope ! In addition to that, the sails of the Dutch ships were made of hemp. As you can imagine, the Dutch used a lot of hemp, and as they set out into the world, they had to have a source of hemp.
Since hemp seeds grow into hemp quite quickly, it was easy for them to take along with them. Cannabis seeds have many properties, they are used in many ways, and they have even been the source of spiritual beliefs and urban legends. You learned that hemp seeds and cannabis seeds are one in the same, or at least they come from the same plant! In the United States, federal law states that all parts of the marijuana plant, including cannabis seeds, are illegal to carry. This excludes hemp seeds, however, which have been sterilized. Though federal law says one thing, over the years, the states have had their say, too, and in most cases, the law of the particular states is the law that is abided by.
So, if the state in which you live has legal marijuana, and more and more are changing into those states each year, you might be able to have legal cannabis seeds. There are a lot of conditions, even in states where legal seeds are available, so you must meet those conditions before you can legally carry them. Thus, make sure, before you start carrying cannabis seeds around, that you fit into the small legal window of opportunity for cannabis seeds.
