About Hemp Milk
Hemp is produced by the Cannabis sativa plant, a sub-specie of the cannabis plant, and a sister of Cannabis indica, which is used for making marijuana. But don’t worry; marijuana has got nothing to do with hemp seeds and its nutritional facts. None of the hemp products such as hemp milk, seeds and oils causes any type of mind-altering effects like that of marijuana.
You can make Hemp milk from Cafoco’s hemp seeds, the company to introduce the first-ever hemp edibles in India, by blending their hemp seeds with water. The flavour of hemp milk is earthy and nutty; it also consists of a creamy texture.
