There are relatively few plant-based foods that provide a complete source of protein, making it valuable for any vegetarian or vegan diet.
The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are well known. Hemp seeds are a great source of multiple essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) in an ideal ratio of 3:1. As the body is unable to produce these acids, they must be absorbed through the diet, such as hemp seeds.
Vitamin E is a group of fat-soluble vitamins with antioxidant effects. Vitamin E helps to prevent inflammation, prevent coronary heart disease, support immune function, support eye health, and lower the risk of cancer.
Vitamin E is also great for the skin when applied directly, which is why we've developed our own face mask, H2 Honey Face Mask with Hemp Oil
Hemp seeds contain a large variety of minerals. It is especially rich in magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, and potassium; providing essential nutrients to your diet.
How to Eat
Hemp seeds are great when sprinkled on to cereals, salads, yogurts, and more. Just toss a spoonful on them.
You can blend them to create hemp seed milk just like you'd make almond milk.
Hemp seeds have a nutty flavor, so for those with nut allergies, hemp seeds make a great substitute for your favorite recipes.
You can dry-toast them on low heat to bring out the nutty flavor even more.
Storing Hemp Seeds
Before opening, you can store them at room temperature.
Once opened: If you store it in a refrigerator, the shelf life will be about a year. If you store it in a pantry, it will last 3 to 4 months. You can also store it in a freezer to extend its life even further.

I started eating hemp seed since last year and I found out it was such a great source of protein and Omega-3. Since my last purchase was almost over I was looking for a new option. And while I was researching, I found out oneroot honey company which I buy organic honey from had hemp seed too! I was really glad to fine them on amazon because I originally found them at wholefood. After tasting hemp seed, I realized their product quality is so awesome in general. I usually take hemp seed with cold pressed juice, salad and I make pesto out of it too.
