Brilliant Idea

  1. Hey City,

    I just had a thought- and right now it seems like a good idea- mind you I am two glasses of wine and a bowl into the night.


    I was thinking, I keep hearing about how marijuana seeds themselves are a substantial source of nutrition and could help solve world hunger- themselves, the seeds have enough nutrition to actually remove faminine from this earth.

    Fucking Africa should be requesting all the marijuana seeds they can get from all nations. Obviously it's not going to be Africa the nation it would be some person/company but if this would actually have an effect what harm is done?

    Now it clearly leaves you open for a criminal conviction because your adress is pretty traceable- but if this wasn't the case we all could do some good.

    Seeds for Starvation, I think our goverment should be able to make that trade.

    EDIT:: I hate thikning all the time because I have no clue what triggered this, I was just like ...Hmmmmm.

    Now it's time for dishes
  2. lol. who would want to eat the seeds...They can't taste good. Or fill u up. I'd steal first.
  3. I dunno, roast them up with some barbecue flavouring...mmmmm

    Grind them for hemp flour and make all kinds of stuff. It's like a grain, versatile.
  4. umm..why not just send them sunflower seeds then?...or pumpkin seeds? haha i think those are a little more abundant
  5. i think what he was saying was that MJ seeds are a better source of nutrition (as MJ proves to be a better source for many things...clothes, fuel etc)

    it sounds like an interesting idea, but there is no way i am risking going to jail over sending seeds though. Eventually, I think hemp will be used to its full potential, but it will just take some more time(unfortunately)
  6. "Cannabis' seeds - traditionally called 'hempseed', contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source provides complete protein nutrition in such an easily digestible form, nor has the oils essential to life in as perfect a ratio for human health and vitality. Hempseed is the richest source in the plant kingdom of essential fatty acids." - Lynn Osburn, researcher

    There are 45 nutrients that humans can't live without, and which their bodies cannot manufacture; 21 minerals, 13 vitamins, eight amino acids and two Essential fatty acids. No single food has them all, but Hemp seed has all eight amino acids and the oil pressed from the hemp seed is one of the best known sources of the two Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) we can't live without; Omega 3 AIpha-Linolenic Acid and Omega 6 Liholeic Acid, and is more than 90 per cent unsaturated.

    EFA's are as vital to human life as vitamins and minerals. Nutritionists refer to these polyunsaturates as 'Vitamin K ' and commonly recommend EFA's for lowering blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyeride levels. They also play an important role in reducing heart disease and stroke risk. They improve cell growth, organ function, vitality, mental state, and enhance thought processes with the transportation of oxygen, electrons and energy throughout our bodies.

    Linseed or 'flax' oil has previously been seen as a good source, containing both omega-3 and omega-6 fats. However, nutritionists believe the best ratio is three times as much omega-6 as omega-3, and the only oil containing that is hemp.

    Hemp seed oil is also a source of vitamins A and E which are powerful antioxidants (anti toxin/free radicals).

    The protein in hemp seed is very similar to the protein in human blood plasma. It is therefore easy to digest. This is good news for those who have problems with cows milk and or soya beans. Hemp seed does not contain the anti-nutrient trypsin inhibitors found in soya milk. Hemp Milk recipe.

    Acre for acre, hemp is a more economical source of protein than livestock. It can be grown without the use of pesticides and with little or no fertiliser. Unlike soybeans, hemp is resistant to UV-B light which is big news if you are a farmer.

    It is legal to use hempseed for food and body care purposes in the UK. To grow hemp as a farmer in the UK requires a licence which is now fairly easy to achieve.

    Other health uses of hemp seed:

    • Linoleic acid, found in 50 per cent of hemp seed oil, has been clinically proven to have anti-inflammatory properties.

    • When applied directly, the oil is beneficial for post laser-treatment or peeled, stressed, acne-prone and sun damaged skin.

    • Rich in GLA's, (the active ingredient also found in evening primrose oil), hemp seed oil helps PMS.

    • People suffering from Eczema, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Cardiovascular Disease have found that the properties in hemp seed oil have helped to reduce their ailments.

    • Hemp oil can also be taken on a daily basis for general well-being (1-3 teaspoons daily) and can also be used in salad dressing or for a wide variety of other food preparations.

    it just pisses me off to no end that possession of a plant, especially one as beneficial as cannabis is illegal considering that:
    it can solve world hunger
    it's one of the best medicines known to mankind
    and it could save the environment

  7. Wow! I never knew how nutritional the seeds were :eek: That's great news though.

    Right, here's the plan for the Africans. We send them seeds (Still need to get round the sending problem). They'll then plant loads of them to produce plants, thus, more seeds. The problem is solved. No more hunger and a lot of stoned people. :smoking: lol
  8. Yea- other seeds would not prove as well (Nutritionally).

    The marijuana seeds don't taste bad. I eat my white ones and damaged ones that come in my stash (I hear the brown ones are fertilized and could be planted so I save them).

    Try them- there delicious actually.
