Default Hemp

Highly government regulated industrial hemp is grown in Canada with the result that hemp seeds, oils, cereals are available in local supermarkets and other healthfood stores. The 0.3 percent THC concentration level serves as the major dividing line between industrial hemp and cannabis plants with intoxicating levels of THC commonly referred to as “marijuana”
and is not legal to grow here for mainstream consumption.

I can buy hemp seed at my local Bulk Barn food chain and hemp cereal at my Sobey's supermarket. Hemp oil is available at "Healthy Choices" healthfood store.

So far I have only bought hemp seed which I use on my salads.

Have you used industrial hemp in your diet and found it beneficial healthwise?

I've not seen hemp in a store yet. Just the illegal marijuana grade seems to be around. I'll have a better look. I think it is Kansas which has the plant used as a side of the highway grass. I only run into hemp used to make rope .

[B]The industrial hemp grown here has thousands of multiple uses. It is a great product with many health and environmental benefits. Worthy of a google for sure!
