Humans have been using hemp for thousands of years, and for good reason too–it’s extremely versatile. Used for clothes, beauty products, paper, food, milk, pet products and more, hemp lives up to the definition of a superseed.
Although hemp is breaking away from it’s negative reputation for being associated with the Cannabis plant, it’s important to know that it’s not relatively close to being like marijuana–it is bred with much lower levels of the psychedelic chemical THC than the drug is. Our favorite way to use hemp is, of course, in its edible form: as an oil, a fiber and a seed. Hemp seeds especially carry tons of nutritional benefits and can be used in numerous amounts of recipes.
