Hemp, or Cannabis sativa, has been part of nutritional therapies since 2300 B.C. Similar to flax, it is a high-protein seed that contains all nine essential amino acids, and is rich in fatty acids, fiber, and vitamin E. Due to its balanced ratio of omega-3 to six fatty acids and its high GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) content, hemp seed and oil can help stimulate immunity, balance the endocrine system, and support healthy skin and hair.

  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons hemp oil
  • 1/2 can unsweetened, full-fat organic coconut milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Cup blueberries

Directions

Place all of the ingredients in a blender and combine. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
