Hi to Hemp! That is the edible kind!

Hi to Hemp! That is the edible kind! 

Hi to Hemp! That is the edible kind as it is now legal in Australia.  It’s been battled for decades but finally changes in the Food Standards Code mean it’s now legal to purchase edible hemp products in Australia!

WHAT IS HEMP? Hi to Hemp! That is the edible kind!

Hemp is a cannabis plant species. Unlike the drug cannabis, hemp has low concentrations, if any, of THC –  the psychoactive chemical – which means its effects are minimal. Instead what you have is nutritious hemp seeds, oil, protein powder and flour. The seeds can be enjoyed raw, sprouted, ground as flour or blended to make hemp milk. Along with the protein powder, they’re an easy and nutritious addition sprinkled over your morning muesli, mixed into smoothies, or on yoghurt. Hemp oil is loved for its subtle nutty flavour, particularly drizzled over salads.

You may have seen hemp products in Australia before; however, these were previously not for human consumption but rather for external use only.

WHY HEMP?

Growing hemp has a low environmental impact compared to many other grain and seed crops. Very few producers, if any, use pesticides or synthetic chemicals while the crops also require less water; meaning it’s better for you and the environment.

BENEFITS OF HEMP 
Hi to Hemp, hemp oil cuppa

Hemp ticks a lot of nutritional boxes, including being packed with essential omega -3 and -6 fatty acids, protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. It’s ow in sugar, carbohydrates and saturated fat. Hemp is suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and as mentioned above is free of gluten.

It’s easily digestible, low histamine, contains great proteins unlike any other plant. The oil tastes nutty, its a great anti-inflammatory so why not pop into your favourite drinks to sustain & keep you full throughout the morning. Great for dry hair and skin, the seeds can also be used as an exfoliant scrub. Please note the oil is low histamine and oxalate. The powder is moderate to high oxalate and the depends on how much you use and whether you have an oxalate problem.

Being highly nutritious and gluten free makes hemp a great option for those in need of gluten-free alternatives.

MY FAVOURITE MORNING CUPPA 

Make your cuppa in the morning from black, green or rooibos teas. Strain and use the tea for a powerful pick me up that lasts the morning.

In a blender place your cuppa, a teaspoon or glug of hemp oil or MCT oil or phosphatylcholine (prescription only as it is a methyl donor & care is needed), 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 tablespoon of collagen powder and 1/2 teaspoon of hydrolysed guar gum (prebiotic that builds friendly gut bacteria). If you like and can have spices I include cinnamon or cardamon and sometimes sprinkle with nutmeg! Whiz together and serve immediately. Top with a bit of extra water if you need to.
