Hemp seeds are not intoxicating. Hemp seeds are about 40% oil. Hemp seeds contain a protein that is more nutritious and more economical to produce than soybean protein. Hemp is the single easiest, most economical, most ecological way to grow protein.

Hempseed oil is one of lowest in saturated fats making it good for lowering cholesterol levels and strengthening cardiovascular systems. Some foods made with hempseed oil are: sauces, butter, condiments and pesto.

Hempseed protein can be used to produce virtually any product made from soybean: tofu, veggie burgers, butter, cheese, salad oils, ice cream, milk, etc. Hemp seed can also be ground into a nutritious flour that can be used to produce baked goods such as pasta, cookies, and breads.

The "meat" of the hemp seed is also highly nutritious and versatile as a seed "meal" and may be made into hemp milk and cheese, ice cream, and burgers. Left over from pressing the oil is press "cake" ~ high in amino acids and edistin protein.

The whole seed contains roughly 25% protein, 30% carbohydrates, 15% insoluble fiber, carotene, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc, as well as vitamins E, C, B1, B2, B3, B6. Hempseed is one of the best sources of Essential Fatty Acids with a perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-3 linolenic Acid, and Omega-6 linoleic Acid, good for strengthening the immune system. Hempseed is also a good source of Gamma linoleic Acid (GLA) which is otherwise available only from specialty oils like evening primrose oil or borage oils.

Throughout history, hemp has provided a nourishing food supply to many cultures around the world. In Asia, roasted hempseed is eaten as a snack, like popcorn. In Russia, hemp butter was used as a condiment by the peasants. In Poland, seeds are used for holiday sweets. Hempseed was eaten by Australians during two famines in the 19th century. The most famous hempseed consumer was Buddha himself, who ate them during his fast of enlightenment.

Grilled Hempbutter Sandwiches
Hemp seeds are about 40% oil. Hemp is the single easiest, most economical, most ecological way to grow protein. Hemp is naturally high in omega-3 unsaturated fats, and has the most complete balance of essential amino acids (2nd only to soy - but not Monsanto's GMO soybeans).

Hemp can be grown at high altitudes, where it's too high and dry for rice to grow; many mountain villiagers rely on hemp as their main source of protein (including Nepal where U.S. military funding was spent to keep poor villiages from growing their own food). We can even make biodegradable food containers, even edible boxes, and water-soluble plastics for food packaging, tableware, and food storage.

We can make biodegradable, strawberry-flavored food packaging, (sandwich wrappers, food boxes, even grocery bags) out of ANY biomass (hemp, sugarcane, ricepaper). you could eat the box for desert, and it'd be both organic AND nutritious!

Hempseeds, Hempseed Oil, & Seedmeal

Household Hemp Oil Products
The hempseed is the only source of food from the hemp plant. It is not really a seed, but an achene- a nut covered with a hard shell. Hempseed is used for people and animal food, medicinal preparations, and industrial use.

Hemp seed can be pressed into a nutritious oil, which contains the highest amount of fatty acids in the plant kingdom. Essential oils are responsible for our immune system responses, and clear the arteries of cholesterol and plaque.

The byproduct of pressing the oil from hemp seed is high quality protein seed cake. It can be sprouted (malted) or ground and baked into cakes, breads, and casseroles. Hemp seed protein is one of mankind's finest, most complete and available-to-the-body vegetable proteins.


Hemp seed was the world's number one wild and domestic bird seed until the 1937 Marijuana prohibition law. Four million pounds of hemp seed for songbirds were sold at retail in the U.S. in 1937. Birds will pick hemp seeds out and eat them first from a pile of mixed seed. Birds in the wild live longer and breed more with hemp seed in their diet, using the oil for the feathers and their overall health.

Hemp seeds contain a protein that is more nutritious and more economical to produce than soybean protein. Hemp seeds are not intoxicating. Hemp seed protein can be used to produce virtually any product made from soybean: tofu, veggie burgers, butter, cheese, salad oils, ice cream, milk, etc. Hemp seed can also be ground into a nutritious flour that can be used to produce baked goods such as pasta, cookies, and breads.

Good Oil
Hempseed is 40% oil, and is one of lowest in saturated fats making it good for lowering cholesterol levels and strengthening cardiovascular systems.

The oil has a pleasantly nutty flavor. Among the foods made with hempseed oil are: sauces, butter, condiments and pesto.

Processing of hempseed oil starts with drying the seeds to prevent sprouting. Hempseeds imported to the United States or Canada must be steam sterilized at 180°F for 15 minutes to prevent further sprouting.

The seeds are then pressed and bottled immediately under oxygen-free conditions. hempseed oil is very fragile, is not suitable for cooking, and must be kept refrigerated in dark, air tight containers.
