(aka the gummy bears, the brownies, bread and whatever else they put that stuff into)?   
Is it a good idea even though there is reportedly no THC in the items? 
Would you eat or drink something made with those products? Why  or why not?

Is it funny that the conflicting voices in my head began getting louder the moment I saw this question?

I went on a health binge a few years back. During that time, I would go into the grocery store and only buy fresh produce. None of that frozen stuff I would eat today. Ice cream, don’t even think about it. I wouldn’t even buy mayonnaise because it’s got preservatives in it. I feel ridiculous now writing this but I would spend sometimes up to an hour reading the ingredients on the back of boxes before choosing the one with the least amount of ingredients.

During that period, I also subscribed to numerous YouTube channels on health foods, health, etc. where a health guru would head into the grocery store and tell people what to buy and not to buy. I would take notes only to find that not only were those foods expensive, they didn’t taste very good.

I made a lot of wrong decisions during this period of my life and wasted my money on these so-call super foods even though they tasted so yucky that I still cannot fathom how some people can like these foods.

Nowadays, I mostly just stick with chia seeds as they can keep me full the longest. I did want to try hemp once and when I want to try something, I’d go into in-depth research, reading every article on the food. Even though hemp is a plant related to cannabis with little to none of its side effect, I haven’t had the chance to try it yet.

I don’t know why. Perhaps, I’m afraid that I may not like it? But if you can make it into something yummy like a brownie or a cake, I’d say why not? It’s a health superfood after all.

  1. Excellent point Yinglan. In the American past, they used hemp primarily for making rope. Maybe that’s a bit of a clue as to how it might taste. Fandango is our resident expert on infusions, with Marilyn knowing a great deal about them as well. You maybe should ask one or the other (or both) of them their opinions. I have to agree that the ‘healthy’ foods (organically grown, without preservatives and whatnot) are very spendy and usually taste fairly awful. But last night I had a frozen vegetable “organic’ lasagna and it was quite delicious. I guess the whole idea can be a bit hit or miss? Good for you for doing that though!
