Hemp seed was reported to be extremely effective in treating TB, especially amongst children. Ground hemp seed is steeped in warm milk for at least 30 minutes, before being pressed and filtered. It should be administered every alternative day. Significant results are found, even to the point where complete healing took place without any other medication. It is thought that the high content of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids found in the primary hemp seed protein, edestin, is important in the treatment of TB.
