Garlic Hemp and Sunflower Seed PestoBy HempForkGarlic Hemp and Sunflower Seed Pesto is one of our favorite recipes at Hemp&fork. This seed-rich variation of pesto offers a health boost thanks to the added nutrients from the hemp hearts, sunflower, and flax seeds. Pesto is a sauce made in Genoa, Italy's northern region. It dates back to the 16th century and combines crushed garlic, basil, and pine nuts with Parmesan cheese and olive oil. This recipe is a twist on that classic recipe, we've added hemp hearts, flax seeds and sunflower seeds and removed the pine nuts and basil. Feel free to substitute the parmesan cheese for a vegan-friendly dish.

Hemp Hearts - Frequently Asked Questions

Heart Health

Hemp seeds are a great source of magnesium, which helps regulate your heartbeat and is linked to the prevention of coronary heart disease. They also contain Linoleic acid, which one study found reduced participants’ cholesterol levels by 15% and may act to reduce blood pressure.

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

An omega-6 fatty acid in hemp seeds called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) may have anti-inflammatory benefits similar to ibuprofen, which is an anti-inflammatory medication. In one study, participants reported a 75% reduction in arthritis pain after taking GLA supplements for nine months.

Skin Conditions

An added health benefit from hemp oil is that it can be used to cook with, and it can also be utilized topically to treat the skin. Hemp seed oil has been demonstrated to alleviate the symptoms of eczema and improve dry or itchy skin. Although research is ongoing, hemp seed oil could aid in treating acne through its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

Brain Health

Hemp seeds contain the optimum ratio of omega-6 fatty acids to omega-3 fatty acids for ideal nutrition. This balance is crucial to both heart health and cognitive health, yet it is often lacking in most diets around the world. Terpenes are plant compounds found in hemp seeds, and research suggests they may help to protect the brain from the effects of aging and help to prevent tumor growth.

Although the seeds themselves do not contain CBD, they still contain a great deal of nutrients, fatty acids, and bioactive compounds that make them a useful food source. Knowing more about hemp seed oil and CBD oil may assist both the clinician and consumer in selecting the safest, most effective product.

“Hemp seeds are non-psychoactive, meaning that consumers cannot get high by eating them.” It’s not possible to get high from ingesting hemp hearts. They won’t cause you to fail a drug test either.

Seeds from the Cannabis Sativa plant are named hemp seeds. The seeds are hard and nut-like on the surface and soft and chewy on the inside. Hemp hearts are simply hulled hemp seeds, the internal core of the seed, similar to the edible portion of sunflower seeds.

You can augment your diet with 2 to 3 tablespoons of Hemp Hearts. Add them to smoothies and shakes, or make milk from them, whether you ingest them raw or a drizzle over your diet the choice is yours. Hemp hearts go well with rice, fruit dishes, salads, khichdi, pasta dishes, shakes, and juices to name a few recipes.

Is hemp Paleo? Some purists have argued that it should be avoided because of the Lentil-like qualities, some suggest moderate hemp in a paleo diet. However, historical research suggests ancient human ancestors may have first discovered hemp for food and medicine long before civilization existed – qualifying its consumption as part of a primal diet regimen, a plant that hunter-gatherers would have been aware of and sought out in certain cultures and areas.

Hemp protein powders are not considered part of a paleo diet.

A paleo diet consists of lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds — foods that in the past could be obtained by hunting and gathering as opposed to foods that became popular when humans started to utilize agricultural tools. A paleo diet limits foods that became common when agriculture came about approximately 10,000 years ago. These non-paleo agricultural foods include dairy products, legumes, and grains. For most humans, the transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural lifestyles was a huge change that led them away from many of their old dietary habits and towards new ones.
