No. These seeds are not for smoking. Hemp seeds are a unique plant food because they contain all the essential amino acids. With their restrictive diets, vegetarians and vegans tend to be missing some of these amino acids, which make hemp seeds a great protein source for those avoiding animal products. Hemp seeds are also high in omega-3s and average 2 grams of dietary fiber and 5 grams of protein in 2 tablespoons. Hemp seeds taste great toasted, mixed into salads, or ground as a healthier alternative to peanut butter.
