Hemp Flower vs Hemp Hearts vs. Hemp Seeds
Are they all alike? No they are not. CBD flower in the morning can utilize any of these in these recipes with success if they are ground fine and decarboxylated. However, there is only one we are going to talk about today and that is CBD hemp flower and how to prepare it for use in your favorite recipes. All three of these do come from the hemp plant, but they are not all created equal.
CBD Hemp Flower Flour – Protein and Gluten-free
Hemp seed flour is very high in protein at 33% and, of course, it is all plant based. Every two tablespoons of hemp flour has 5 grams of digestible protein. If you need gluten free, CBD flower in the morning meets your dietary preferences. Hemp flour is naturally gluten free making it a perfect flour for gluten sensitivity.
Amino Acids and Protein
Hemp flour is loaded with amino acids so using CBD flower in the morning will provide omega 3’s and omega 6’s which are very necessary because our bodies do not naturally produce these particular amino acids. Consuming omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids helps reduce inflammation as well as overall heart and brain health. Hemp flower flour is very high in fiber so helps keep your digestive system functioning well and helps you feel full longer.
