Hemp, Hemp, Hooray!
Here are 4 nutritious and delicious reasons to be high on hemp.
Hemp is one of the fastest growing food sectors in the United States—and no wonder. This plant product is a nutritional heavyweight food that delivers a knockout punch of protein, healthy fats and necessary minerals. Ultra-versatile in the kitchen, allergy-friendly hemp can be used in a wide range of dishes. Those in the know also value hemp for its environmental sustainability. Although the word “hemp” may bring to mind peace, love and Grateful Dead concerts, the variety of hemp grown for food consumption in North America contains irrelevant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in its bad-boy cousin, marijuana. With a burgeoning number of hemp foods available in stores, it’s easier than ever to get your hemp on.
