Hemp seeds (no-drug type of Cannabis sativa L.) have been a precious nutritive source for millennia in Chinese and European cultures. Indeed, the unusual abundance of essential n-6 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, high-quality proteins, carbohydrates masked for a long-time hemp seeds phenol and cannabinoid baggage, whose recovery and bioactivity allowed us to define these little plant entities a valuable network of nutritional and nutraceutical compounds. This talk aims to provide a detailed and updated background for researches on the seeds of this niche crop, paying attention on their phytochemicals chemistry, which represents the basis of a new value chain for the sustainable development and the genesis of innovative products in food and nutraceutical sectors.
