Abundant source of easily digestible, natural protein
A very popular way of consuming hemp seeds, for instance, is to first roast them and then mix them with a crunchy snack like kale chips. Some folks even roast their cannabis seeds and throw them in boiling water along with their favourite spices – a great way to increase the nutritional bang of your choice of tea, by also including cannabis stems and dried leaves as well.
No High – But a World of Health Benefits
Well, marijuana/hemp seeds can be consumed straight off the buds (raw) or cooked, shelled, unshelled, etc. pretty much however you want. Some folks even like roasting and adding them to their favourite dessert. You don’t need to cook or ‘process’ them in any way to reap all those wonderful nutritional and health benefits.
Obese people can benefit from consuming seeds because they contain lots of vitamins, including Vitamin E, and essential minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and calcium – nutrients that can help overweight people stay fuller and feel more satiated around the clock.
Many health experts claim that hemp seeds contain the most omega fatty acid content among all plant seeds, even more so than flaxseed, walnuts and Chia seeds.
You might also find a mature seed that has been physically damaged through poor handling, like rough trimming. In those cases, it probably isn’t worth the effort to try and germinate the seed.
As we’ve mentioned, cannabis is a dioecious plant, meaning male and female reproductive organs appear on different plants.
Cultivating males is important for breeders trying to cross new strains and genetics, but most people growing for buds will want to remove the males.
Is the seed viable?
Seeds found in finished cannabis buds can develop for a number of reasons. For example, a male plant may have accidentally pollinated a flowering female during the growing process. But more commonly, they’re a sign of stress and can be attributed to high temperatures during the final stages of flowering or an exaggerated spike in climate or environment.
Ask yourself a few questions to decide if it’s worth the time and energy to grow the seed.
So don’t discount bud because it has a seed or two in it. While not ideal, it could be the origins of the next great weed strain.
These are referred to as “bagseeds” and whether or not you can grow one will depend on where it came from.
The bottom line is that it is not a good idea to smoke your weed seeds.
You can add them to meals such as salads, pasta, dressings, and oatmeal for a nutty and nutritional crunch!
If you cannot be bothered to come up with unique and interesting ideas for what to do with your cannabis seeds, then consider selling them to others to make a quick buck.
Grow a pot plant
The most effective use of cannabis seeds is to grow a pot plant. Even if you are not an expert cannabis cultivator, growing weed does not require you to know rocket science.
Just make sure that you have enough information about the seeds you are selling.
You can do it so long as you do your research, are responsible, and put in the due effort.
