In a recent article, The Australian stated that ‘Cannabis ice cream, cake and beer have been cleared on health grounds by the nation’s food watchdog, despite fears that the “marijuana munchies” could trigger positive drug tests.‘ They also shared a story from a Dr. Katelaris, who is appealing a case against his de-registration for supplying medical marijuana to patients, stating that seeds of industrial hemp contain more Omega 3 acids than seafood.
The Food Standards of Australian report said, ‘Hemp seed is a nutritious food containing sizeable amounts of protein, polyunsaturated fats and dietary fibre . . . (and) micronutrients such as thiamin, vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc.‘ If all of this is true it really makes me wonder why California has such a problem legalizing marijuana, especially considering the economic state we’re currently in.
