Hemp Seeds

Derived from the same plant (Cannabis sativa L) that provides marijuana, but the seeds contain only trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component of hemp resin.  Food products made from hemp seeds and their oil will not get you high or cause a positive reading on drug tests.  Hemp seeds have high levels of vitamin A,C and E and beta-carotene and are rich in protein, carbohydrates, minerals, and fiber.  Some research has also found that hemp has an ideal ration of omega-6 and omega-3 acids, with the latter provided in the form of ALA.
