What nutritional value does marijuana have?
Looking at it as an after-doom survival plant it's useful. It's versatile, grows fast, produces a crapload of seeds, the stalks can be used for string, paper, clothing to name a few. You can grow a 6 foot plant in 4 months leaving two crops chances per season. If one fails you still had the other.

But what about nutritional value? Are there any recipes that are not intended to get you high so much as feed you? The stems and male plants have lower concentrations of THC so you could use only those parts in 'non-high' food.

Also since it's been banned there hasn't been a demand for GM weed, so it's almost still totally naturally with only slight deviations bred in by your local grow experts. This makes the mass seed production even more useful.

It is easy to control the seed production as well. Male and female plants are identifiable early and can be moved. After that you can put a plastic baggie over one of the male stems and shake. Bring the baggie over to the female plant and repeat step #1. Plant insemination.

Well anyway, anyone know nutritional properties or recipes for what may become a staple plant in the future.

Re: What nutritional value does marijuana have?
Nutrition
30–35% of the weight of hempseed is oil containing 80% of the unsaturated essential fatty acids (EFAs), linoleic acid (LA, 55%) and linolenic acid (ALA, 21–25%). These are not manufactured by the body and must be supplied by food. The proportions of linoleic acid and linolenic acid in hempseed oil are perfectly balanced to meet human requirements for EFAs, including gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). Unlike flax oil and others, hempseed oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs. Hemp also contains 31% complete and highly-digestible protein, 1/3 as edestin protein and 2/3 as albumin protein. This protein profile is second only to raw uncooked soybeans (35% vs. 31%), and the amino acid profile is superior to soybean, human milk, and cow's milk, and similar to egg whites.
The ALA contained in plant seed oils by itself is sufficient for nutrition, as your body is capable of converting it into other fatty acids. However, this conversion process is inefficient, and the broader spectrum of omega-3 fatty acids obtained from oily fish is easier for the body to immediately utilize (see Fish and plants as a source of Omega-3).
Typical nutritional analysis of shelled hempseed:
Calories/100 g 567
Protein (Nx5.46) 30.6%
Fat 47.2%
Saturated fat 5.2%
Monounsaturated fat 5.8%
Polyunsaturated fat 36.2%
Carbohydrate 10.9%
Oleic 18:1 (Omega-9) 5.8%
Linoleic 18:2 (Omega-6) 27.56%
Linolenic 18:3 (Omega-3) 8.68%
Cholesterol 0.0%
Total dietary fiber 6.0%
Vitamin A (B-Carotene) 4 IU/100 g
Thiamine (Vit B1) 1.38 mg/100 g
Riboflavin (Vit B2) 0.33 mg/100 g
Vitamin B6 0.12 mg/100 g
Vitamin C 1.0 mg/100 g
Vitamin D 2277.5 IU/100 g [citation needed]
Vitamin E (dl-A-Tocopherol) 8.96 IU/100 g
Sodium 9.0 mg/100 g
Calcium 74.0 mg/100 g
Iron 4.7 mg/100 g

Re: What nutritional value does marijuana have?
Why hemp?
Because no other single plant on earth can compete with the nutritional value of hemp.
The nutritive properties of the hemp seed are astounding. Rich in essential fats and oils, the seeds could provide a nutritional boost to a food-culture which mistakenly percieves all fat as a bad thing; which is more and more lacking in the important fats oils; and which is being inundated with downright dangerous fats, oils, and synthetic substitutes. The seeds can be ground into a flour, not unlike other strictly cereal crops like wheat or oats.

Cannabis hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source provides complete protein 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 highest of any plant in essential fatty acids (EFAs). Hempseed oil is among the lowest in saturated fats at 8% of total oil volume. The oil pressed from hempseed contains 55% lineoleic acid (LA) and 25% linolenic acid (LNA). Only flax oil has more LNA at 58%, but hempseed oil is the highest in total EFAs at 80% of total oil volume.

"These essential fatty acids are responsible for our immune response. In the old country the peasants ate hemp butter. They were more resistant to disease than the nobility." The higher classes wouldn't eat hemp because the poor ate it. --- R. Hamilton, ED.D., Ph.D. Medical Researcher-Biochemist UCLA Emeritus.

LA and LNA are involved in producing life-maintaining energy from food and the movement of that energy throughout the body. EFAs govern growth, vitality and state of mind. LA and LNA are involved in transferring oxygen from the air in the lungs to every cell in the body. They play a part in holding oxygen in the cell membrane where it acts as a barrier to invading viruses and bacteria, neither of which thrive in the presence of oxygen.

The bent molecular shape of the EFAs keeps them from dissolving into each other. They are slippery and will not clog arteries like the sticky, straight-shaped saturated fats (SFs) and the trans-fatty acids (TFAs) in cooking oils and shortenings that are made by subjecting polyunsaturated oils like LA and LNA to high temperatures during the defining process.

LA and LNA possess a slightly negative charge and have a tendency to form very thin surface layers. This proprty is called surface activity, and it provides the power to carry substances like toxins to the surface of the skin, intestinal tract, kidneys, and lungs where they can be removed. These acids' very sensitivity causes them to break down rapidly into toxic compunds when when refined with high heat, or improper storage exposes them to light or air.

Nature provides seeds with an outer shell that safely protects the vital oils and vitamins within from spoilage. It's also a perfectly edible container. Hempseed can be ground into a paste similar to peanut butter only more delicate in flavour. Udo Erasmus, Ph.D. nutritionist says: "hemp butter puts our peanut butter to shame for nutritional value." The ground seeds can be baked into breads, cakes, and casseroles. Hempseed makes a hearty addition to granola bars.

Pioneers in the fields of biochemistry and human nutrition now believe cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and most cancers are really diseases of fatty degeneration caused by the continued over-consumption of SFs and refived vegetable oils that turn EFAs into carcogenic killers. One out of two Americans will die from the effects of CVD, One out of four Americans will die of cancer. Researchers believe cancers erupt when one's immune system response is weakened. And, more Americans are succumbing to immune deficiency diseases than ever before. Promising syudies are now under way using the essential oils to support the immune systems of HIV patients.

The complete protein in hempseed gives the body all the essential amino acids required to maintain health, and provides the necessary kinds and amounts of amino acids the body needs to make human serum albumin and serum globulins like the immune enhancing gamma gobulin antibodies.

The body's ability to resist and recover from illness depends upon how rapidly it can produce massive amounts of antibodies to fend off the initial attack. If the globulin protein starting material is in short supply, the army of antibodies may be too small to prevent the symptoms of sickness from setting in.

The best way to insure the body has enough amino acid material to make the globulins is to eat foods high in globulin proteins. Hempseed protein is 65% globulin edestin plus quantities of albumin (present in all seeds) so it's easily digestable protein is readily available in a form quite similar to that found in blood plasma.

Hempseed was used to treat nutritional deficiencies brought on by tuberculosis, a severe nutrition-blocking disease that causes the body to waste away. (Czechoslovakia Tubercular Nutritional Study, 1955.)

The energy of life is in the whole seed. Hempseed foods taste great and will insure we get enough essential amino acids and essential fatty acids to build strong bodies and immune systems, and to maintain health and vitality.

As an after-doom plant it's indispensible for the cordage and such you can make from it, also the seeds could be eaten in small amounts to keep people at a healthy level. The hardiness is great also.... and it would be a great stress reliever when people are down because a gang of fat sheeples who got hungry after McDonalds shut down gunned their family to death.

Re: What nutritional value does marijuana have?
You can't grow two crops of marijuana in one year (for flower tops anyway) Marijuana goes into flowering according to the amount of nightly darkness it is exposed to. Once the daylight hours fall below 13 or so (more for some varieties) it starts it's reproductive cycle. The shorterr the day the faster it flowers.
Some varieties of hemp will flower according to age of the plant but why grow hemp when there are so many added benefits to a nice field of Chronic?

Don't know if this will get a response, but the responses here have been pretty informative. My only issue is with painting hemp and weeds as the end all of plant nutrition. Quinoa is ingested in a similar way as a seed and it has a better protein profile than egg whites, milk and soybeans. Y'all should check it out. Maybe hemp has a better fatty acvid profile, but I doubt it's better at protein delivery and constitution than quinoa.

Perhaps I'm biased though because I have some quinoa I'm about to harvest from my garden, but I figure fellow flower children might want to check it out.

Re: What nutritional value does marijuana have?
anyone with an internet connection (or a healthfood shop nearby) can eeeeeeasilly find out the nutritional value of hempseed, which has been most of the emphasis here. and yes, of course it's utterly astonishing stuff, far the supperior of any other food stuff for the various reasons presented in the more robust replies here... i was wondering if anyone had information on whole plant nutritional value, nutritional values for leaf, and nutritional values for sensimilia. of course, i expect these quantities of the various nutrients to vary from plant to plant, from growing conditions to growing conditions, and especially between the subspecies, sativa, indica, ruderalis, chinensis, and any others you may consider distinct enough for their own name.

any of the stuff you think may be lacking from the seed (i.e. some vitamins), i'm sure would be present in sufficient quantity in the vegitable (leaf) matter of the plant.

eating "whole food", i've been learning from other sources, really is the best way to go.

so... anyone know what's in the leaf?
