New Study Finds Hemp Seeds Can Prevent and Treat Hypertension

A study published in the November issue of the European Journal of Nutrition has found that hemp seeds may not only treat hypertension, but may have the abilityhempseeds to prevent it as well.

“This work determined the ability of hemp seed meal protein hydrolysate (HMH)-containing diets to attenuate elevated blood pressure (hypertension) development in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs)”, states the study’s abstract. “Effects of diets on plasma levels of renin and angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) in the SHRs were also determined.”

After conducting the study, researchers concluded; “The results suggest that HMH with strong hypotensive effects in SHRs could be used as a therapeutic agent for both the prevention and treatment of hypertension.”

The study was conducted at the University of Manitoba, and received funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.

    This is something I knew first hand. Over the many years I had smoked marijuana I never had high blood pressure. Even when in ex-stream pain due to child abuse leaving me with a whole in my back as well as a body broken down by hard labor. Over the many years since I was 13 years of age. I had worked hard at all types of jobs. I only started smoking marijuana at the age of 19. As I seen doctor after doctor over the years sometimes in such pain it was hard to even sit . My blood pressure checked fine. In most cases it would have checked high. This was pointed out to me by a nurse. I always wondered why the doctors treated me like I was just a druggy looking for a fix. By the way I only take or even tried to get pain pills when the pain became unbearable. Even today I only get 10 pain pills a month. At age forty seven now over the last three years my blood pressure checks higher, my cholesterol as well is high and I gained a lot of weight. None of the problems I had when smoking marijuana and eating more than I do now. For a drug that has no good purpose it has not only saved my life in fighting depression it controlled much more than I even knew until becoming old and facing prison. Again for what I know has saved my life in fighting depression. We are only talking less than a dime bag I was caught with. So you tell me is pot killing me or is system that still supports lies doing so?
