Life expectancy in Bama Yao, a village in China, is well over 100 years for its inhabitants. Scientists believe their secret to longevity is in their diet, which includes lots of hempseed. With a nearly perfect balance of omega 3 to omega 6, plus iron, vitamin E, and all of the essential amino acids, hempseed is considered a superfood.
The seeds may be eaten whole or shelled, raw or toasted, plain or flavoured. Seeds can also be pressed for oil, and ground into flour and protein powder. The villagers of Bama Yao already know it is very easy to incorporate hemp into any meal.
For its new temporary exhibition ‘Cannabis Cuisine’, the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum explores the history of cannabis edibles, sets the table for a dinner full of hemp, and provides tasty recipes for you to take home and satisfy your inner cannabis foodie.
