The juicing and smoothie craze has been steadily rising in popularity for quite a few years now. Each form of nutrient extraction certainly has its perks, but no matter what your personal preference is, the benefits seem to be apparent. These forms of liquid extraction help to shuttle powerful phytocompounds and nutrients into our cells in a way that's already somewhat predigested and broken down.
Many have seen results regarding weight loss, increasing energy, boosting immunity, clearer skin, better focus, and much more. Somehow hemp seeds have gotten lost in the shuffle of chia seeds, flax seeds, and smoothie additives like matcha, cacao, acai, and the multitude of powdered superfoods.
CBD is very powerful and worth incorporating into any routine.
CBD comes from the beloved plant known as cannabis sativa. Many people associate this plant by her alter-ego, Mary Jane, marijuana, weed, or reefer are all names referring to the portion of the cannabis plant that contains THC. THC is the psychoactive ingredient that gets people hugging their neighbors dog and laughing uncontrollably at the latest car commercial. CBD is entirely different.
CBD will NOT have this effect and is completely non-psychoactive, but does provide wonderful benefits to your health. Hemp seeds have a great ratio of fatty acids, including GLA, and is rich in nutrients that can help boost the immune system, protect and support healthy brain functioning, and may even have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.
