Anyway, let’s take a look at the top five reasons why you should eat marijuana seeds.
One of our favorite ways to eat hemp seeds is to roast them. Then, we combine them with a crunchy, plant-based snack. For example, kale chips make for a fantastic combination.

Instead, they were cultivating hemp for the boundless nutritional components of the seed. They also knew about its use for the construction/textile components of the stalk and stem. During that era, people used hemp fibers to make rope, paper, clothes, etc.
Unlike hemp, cannabis remains federally illegal. Even so, many Americans are finding a way to incorporate marijuana seeds into their diet. They are doing so for the same reasons those colonists did in the 17th century.
By the way, marijuana seeds are one of the only plant-based food sources that contain every single amino acid required for human survival! Some nutritional gurus claim these seeds are the most “nutritionally complete food source in the world.”

In layman’s terms; There isn’t enough THC to warrant extracting the THC from them. You’re better off to add your seeds to your salad and enjoy their crunch, or grow them out. There just may be a gem hidden in your pile of bag seeds.
Back to Mary’s seeds, if they do not contain THC, then that means (in my opinion) that the Government would rather people have easy-access to psilocybian-spores than fertile dank weed seeds. If they do contain THC, then it makes sense to make them illegal [legalize weed for buying, selling, & possessing!], according to the format for the written law of mushroom spores.
So, do these seeds contain the magical but controversial chemical THC?
A GC–MS method was performed to determine the total Delta9-THC content in both drug- and fiber-type cannabis seeds. Drug-type seeds were found to contain much higher levels of Delta9-THC (35.6–124 mug/g) than fiber (hemp) seeds (0–12 mug/g). The majority of Delta9-THC was found to be located on the surface of the seeds. Approximately 90% of the total Delta9-THC was removed by a simple, quick wash with chloroform. Washed drug-type seeds contained less than 10 mug/g. Separation of the seeds into the kernel and testa showed that the bulk of Delta9-THC is located in the testa, mainly on the outside. The kernels of drug- and fiber-type cannabis seeds contained less than 2 and 0.5 mug Delta9-THC/g seeds, respectively. Fluctuations in the Delta9-THC content of different replicates of the same type of seeds could be the result of the degree of contamination on the outside of the seeds.
There is no visible difference between regular cannabis seeds, feminized cannabis seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds, and seeds for growing industrial hemp plants. For this reason, always buy your cannabis seeds from a reputable seed bank (such as Sensi Seeds and White Label Seed Company) so that you definitely know what you’re getting.
You can eat cannabis seeds, and they’re good for you! Cannabis sativa L. seeds are a great source of protein, and contain a near-perfect balance of the essential fatty acids (EFA) omega 3, 6 and 9. These are vital to human health and cannot be produced by the body. It is better to eat hemp seeds than cannabis seeds as the former are a lot cheaper! There is no difference in the EFA content of the seeds – just the THC content of the plants they produce. Cannabis seeds do not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or any other psychoactive substance.
3. A single cannabis plant can produce hundreds of seeds
In many countries, the possession of cannabis seeds is legal (usually because they do not contain any THC) whereas germinating them is harshly punished. Many people are forced to buy and preserve their seeds as collector’s items, in the hope that legislation in their area will soon change to a more enlightened approach to home cannabis cultivation.
The oldest cannabis seeds we know of are 2,700 years old and were found in 2007 in a grave in China. As a species, our relationship with cannabis goes back thousands of years that we can trace, and many more that we can only guess at!
The best temperature to store cannabis seeds is 5 – 7 °C (40 – 45 °F), which is usually the temperature of the door in a domestic refrigerator, handily enough. Cannabis seeds should also be kept perfectly dry to avoid both mould and premature germination. This holds true whether you are keeping cannabis seeds as a souvenir or hemp seeds as food!
