Written by rosetta

If you don’t already, consider incorporating hemp seeds into your diet.

The super-seeds, derived from the Cannabis plant, are, contrary to popular belief, NOT like marijuana, as hemp comes from a variant of the Cannabis plant which contains significantly lower levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the “psychoactive” constituent of the plant.
