Here’s everything you should know about using cannabis seeds.
Cannabis seeds are a legal product in The UK: whether they are food products. Therefore, dried seeds, or mature cannabis seeds, potentially ideal for cultivation, these products do not contain cannabinoids.
Consequently, the sale of marijuana seeds is possible, as is their purchase online or in physical stores. But how can you use hemp/cannabis seeds? Today we will explain to you all the possibilities of using these products so that you know exactly what to do with them.
1) Is growing weed seeds a legitimate use of these products?
Not in the UK, but in many other countries it is. If you live in Spain, Austria or another state where cannabis cultivation has been legalized, you can easily plant marijuana seeds within the limits of the law and grow your plant.
Many states allow you to grow small amounts of marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes. Others only allow you to grow it for medicinal purposes, so you will need to find out about this.
In the UK, however, this is not allowed. We had to wait years before the cultivation of marijuana for personal use only was decriminalized… But who knows how long we’ll have to wait before the administrative offence is cancelled as well?
Many countries are far ahead of us on this issue. There is no doubt about that. Weed seeds can only be eaten here… or collected.
2) Collector cannabis seeds: another permitted use of hemp seeds.
Although it is not possible to grow marijuana seeds in the UK, you can use them for collecting purposes. You can, therefore, buy auto flower seeds, feminized seeds and fast growing weed seeds online at Sensory Seeds, and we will deliver them to you with an anonymous parcel within 48 hours at the address you indicate.
To use them as collector’s cannabis seeds, you do not have to open their vacuum capsules. Alternatively, if you want to eat hemp seeds, you can buy those that are food certified.
3) Eat cannabis seeds: in the UK you can!
You can find hemp seeds both in supermarkets and grocery stores, just because they are edible products without any risk. Of course, in the package must be specified the food use. Otherwise, you can’t do it (for example our weed seeds BSF don’t have it, so don’t try to munch them!).
Eating hemp seeds means taking a superfood that is high in protein and rich in fibre, vitamins and fatty acids that are beneficial for our health. Taking these seeds does not cause any alteration of the psyche (as they do not contain cannabinoids), on the contrary: they are antioxidant products and promote the health of the skin, heart and joints.
Cannabis seeds for food use are usually dried and often peeled, therefore unsuitable for cultivation. Still, they allow you to enrich many dishes – for example, salads, first and second courses – or eat them without accompaniment as you would with dried fruit.
4) Cannabis seeds for food use? Use them to prepare an energizing breakfast.
In addition to the uses mentioned above, you can use hemp seeds for food use to prepare a protein shake, ideal if you do sports or if you need a lot of energy and concentration during the day.
And that’s not all: these seeds help to give the smoothies a creamy texture. You can also use them as a final garnish if you forget to put them in the smoothie or if you want a more inviting texture.
If you don’t like smoothies, you can make a Muesli with hemp seeds, a tasty and energizing breakfast similar to porridge. Here’s how to make it:
- The night before breakfast, pour a jar of yoghurt, 3 tablespoons of oatmeal, a tablespoon of water and the juice of half a lemon into a cup.
- Stir and leave to rest all night in the fridge.
- The next morning add fresh fruit, dried fruit and hemp seeds to the porridge.
Less than 300 kcal for a super healthy breakfast!
5) Use cannabis seeds to make homemade bread.
Among the best homemade foods, we find homemade bread; fragrant, fresh and tasty, it will give you a lot of satisfaction (despite some initial headaches to get the perfect result!).
To make the bread even more tasty and nutritious, you can use hemp seeds for food use, to be added to the dough and also on its surface. There are countless recipes for homemade bread: with sourdough or brewer’s yeast, with wholemeal flour or Manitoba flour, and many other variations.
We advise you to start with the most straightforward recipe if you are a beginner (brewer’s yeast + Manitoba flour) and then try other variations if necessary. For example, whole-wheat bread with hemp seeds is a real treat that you might seriously fall in love with.
Now you know how to use hemp seeds to make the most of their properties. If you live in a country where their cultivation is allowed or if you live in the UK and want to buy them for collectors use, buy our weed seeds BSF now on SensorySeeds!
