Description: Hemp seeds come from an annual plant, native to Central Asia, and now commercially cultivated in Asia, Europe, and China. The plants can grow up to 5 metres in height and have hollow, resinous stems. The leaves are opposite, alternate, with long stalks (petiolate), palmate, with 3-11 lanceolate leaflets, each approximately 10cm in length with serrated margins, and bright to mid-green in colour. The inflorescences are dioecious, which means that they produce male and female flowers on separate plants. The male flowers grow in loose racemes or panicles, each flower with 5 sepals and stamens but no petals and are yellowish-green in colour, the female flowers present in dense clusters, sometimes hidden by leafy bracts, and also have 5 sepals and no petals and are white to creamy white in colour. The small seeds are ovate in shape and light to dark brown in colour and 2.5-4mm in diameter.
Interesting Fact: Hemp seeds come from the same plant family as marijuana, however hemp seeds contain only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol, often abbreviated to THC, which is the psychoactive compound that marijuana is famed for. Hemp seeds are full of protein and contain all 9 of the essential amino acids required by the human body which it cannot make for itself. Hemp seed also provides a good source of fibre, vitamins and minerals and contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
