And nonsecretors are advised to limit their oil intake... on the other hand, we have plenty of oil-rich foods on our list, so the recommendation is to get the oils from the foods in which they occur rather than taking in daily quantities of processed oils from those foods. For that reason, eating the seeds would appear to be the best way of obtaining the benefit of the oil, if you *were* a nonsecretor.
Neat Ask Dr. D., huh? I think the issue is not only whether your job requires drug testing, but also what effect the THC in the oil (or seeds, from which the oil is expressed) may have on one's body. Do we want that effect?
Peter didn't specify what species (other than it's not marijuana) contains the lectins discussed in the statement:
"Another species of hemp have been shown to contain lectins capable of binding to galactose and fucose, raising questions about suitability in blood group O and B."
but now I don't plan on trying this oil, as I'm a little possessive of my fucose, not to mention my clarity of mind!
"The is a lectin in marijuana (3) which, although not blood type specific, does bond to glucose, perhaps the most abundant sugar in the body."
Nice to finally know what those "munchies" were all about! :-)
