You can absolutely eat cannabis seeds , or hemp seeds, and are even seen as a superfood. Hemp seed is even packed with proteins, healthy fats and various minerals, which is an excellent addition to your daily diet. Hemp seed is often sold with its shell, which is less pleasant to eat. It is possible, but it is less tasty due to the fairly hard skin. However, hemp seed is also available peeled (broken), so that you can immediately consume the seed separately from the husk. Of course, you do not need feminized cannabis seeds for this, because they have no extra additive compared to male cannabis seeds if you want to use them as food.

Hemp seed has a nutty taste and is a delicious addition to yogurt, in a smoothie, on a salad or in soup.
