Hemp Industry Likely to Benefit from Marijuana’s Success

Writing for InvestorIntel, Dr. Luc Duchesne notes that in the past the negativity surrounding marijuana has “complicated things for the hemp industry.” However, now that marijuana’s reputation is improving, “awareness for the modern potential for industrial hemp” is likely to rise.

As quoted in the market news:

Forget cod liver oil, hemp seed oil is a better functional food. Although its fatty acid composition is most often noted, with essential fatty acid (EFA) content ranging from 25-35%, whole hemp seed is additionally comprised of approximately 20-25% protein, 20-30% carbohydrates, and 10-15% fiber, along with an array of trace minerals. With a full profile of all essential amino and fatty acids, hemp seed oil is a complete nutritional source. The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon per day (15 ml) of hempseed oil exceeds daily requirements for EFAs. And unlike flaxseed oil, hempseed oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs. – See more at: http://investorintel.com/potash-phosphate-intel/market-recognition-medicinal-marijuana-boosts-business-interest-industrial-hemp-market/#sthash.354ptqlq.dpuf
