Cooking & Baking with Hemp Seeds

The versatile hemp seed is great in many recipes. It is easy to digest, and the nutty flavor is mild. They can accent sweet or savory foods and even combine with other ingredients to be a nutritional alternative to butter.

Hemp Seeds & Stress

As hemp seeds are high in magnesium, they are great for combating stress. Magnesium helps support neurotransmitters in the body, which fight stress and anxiety. While taking a multivitamin is helpful for increasing magnesium consumption, it is often short of what the body needs and hemp seeds are one of the best sources of it so they can be great to take.

The B vitamins in hemp seeds deliver energy to the body and also help with neurotransmitter function. As for the amino acids (protein) in the seeds, they help produce a calm mind and stable mindset. Hemp seeds have a lot of amino acids, even rivaling eggs.

Growing Hemp Seeds

Unfortunately, although you can eat hemp seeds made in other countries, it is illegal to grow them here in the U.S. All hemp in the U.S. is imported. The reason hemp seeds are not legal to grow in gardens here is because the government does not distinguish between different types of cannabis plants.

When you use imported hemp seeds in your baking or cooking, let us know what you think about the flavor and if you notice your mind being more relaxed after ingesting them.
