Black seed, or Nigella sativa, is a species of black cumin prized in the Mediterranean and Middle East for its tonic medicinal properties. Its oil has been used historically for many different conditions, and was often considered a panacea.
Black seed contains thymoquinone, dithymoquinone, nigellone, beta-sitosterol, melanthin, nigilline and damascene. Thymoquinone is considered the primary active constituent, and on average black seed oil contains 1-2% thymoquinone. This is the most potent black seed oil I've ever found, and actually contains 4%.
Black seed oil has been well researched, and seems to have a wide range of mild to moderate benefits.
Black seed honey is raw honey from bee boxes placed in black cumin fields. This is a totally unique practice, and the honey is only obtained from a few farms in the world. It is similar to black seed oil, but the active compound ratios may vary. It makes an excellent addition to tea or can be used in cooking, or it can also be taken as a supplement. A good dose seems to be between 1-4 tsp at any given time.
