Hemp in general, can sometimes get a bad reputation with the connection to marijuana. When many people hear the word hemp they almost immediately think of marijuana or smoking and drugs. But these hemp seeds do not contain THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), the active chemical contained in marijuana and they wont get you high in any way shape or form. Hemp seeds are actually healthy and good for you. They are jam packed with healthy nutrients, namely their high protein content. For only two tablespoons they pack a wallop in protein, with five grams of protein per two tablespoons! Now to be perfectly honest there flavor leaves a lot to be desired but the health benefits out weigh the flavor. You can pick up a bag of hemp seeds at any health food store or specialty grocery store. A bag will run you about $14 and they come in a verity of flavors. You can add hemp seeds to a salad, breakfast cereal and even to trail mix. For the most nutrients eat the seeds raw. Food is the body's fuel the better fuel you put in the better performance you get out.
