Why is cannabidiol (CBD) good for Vegans

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), Cannabidiol is one of several (probably over 200) compounds of the cannabis plant. Derived from hemp – a variety of Cannabis sativa – CBD oil is an entirely natural extract that is available as a food additive in many countries. Hemp and other Cannabinoid plants are thought to provide significant physical and mental health benefits.

Below are 4 great reasons why CBD is good for vegans.

  • Full spectrum CBD oil contains fibre, and essential fatty acids. The oil also contains all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that the human body processes on its own.
  • Additionally, full spectrum CBD oil is also considered an ideal source of Omega 3 and Omega 6. Omega 3 plays a vital role in creating hormones that regulate inflammation as well as the contractions and relaxation of arteries. They also lower your triglyceride levels in the blood to reduce the chances of suffering from heart disease and stroke.
  • Full spectrum CBD oil also contains a wide range of vitamins in addition to minerals. The oil is known to contain vitamins such as A, C, E, and B complex. Vitamin A plays a critical role in the growth and development of the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs. Vitamin A is also an antioxidant, so it helps protect cells from the damage of free radicals. Similarly, Vitamin C and Vitamin E are also powerful antioxidants that boost the body’s immune functions to prevent certain medical conditions. Moreover, B Complex Vitamins help boost the immune system, create red blood cells, and produce sex and stress-related hormones.
  • Hemp is also a complete protein source. Vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds are all good for keeping healthy and maintaining a fuller stomach for longer, but hemp seeds are the easiest and best choice as it is a complete protein source, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities for a healthy diet. Hemp seeds also contain an incredible 31.56g of protein per 100g of seeds, which is in near equal amounts to that of chicken or pork, and with less saturated fats.
