Cannabis & Anti-oxidant Properties

An anti-oxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction involving the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. Antioxidants are found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables, including hemp seed.
