I have been hearing a lot about the health benefits of eating hemp seeds these days and a couple of grocery stores I shop at, carry them. I was talking with the produce guy at Ralph’s — too mainstream to carry something like that… yet — and we got to talking about hemp. I told him about seeing hemp seeds for sale in natural food stores and he raised a good question, I am not sure about — so I am throwing it out there to you dear readers. My produce guy said –” The government is not going to allow fertile hemp seeds to be sold in stores, so in order to make sure the hemp seed cannot be used to grow ‘weed’ — it will need to be irradiated. Radiation will kill off any nutritional value.” Hmmmm interesting point. But I do see advertisements for raw hemp seeds. Are the hemp seeds sold in stores the same seeds used to grow pot? I really have no idea but I think someone out in blogger land has the answer… So what say you???
