The Specialty Food Association (SFA) calls hemp one of the top food trends, identifying it as a standout at its Fancy Food Show held in Las Vegas.
At the show, hemp seeds starred in alternative burgers, dressings and even as an ingredient in chocolate.
While hemp seeds do come from the same species of plant as cannabis, they won't get you high and you won't fail a drug test after eating them, says Allrecipes.
The SFA recognized hemp not only as a standout for its nutritional value, but also for the fact crops are sustainable, says Axios.
You can sprinkle them on salads and slaws, blend them into hummus or turn them into pesto. They are also great for snacks.
After adjusting for the effects of age, gender and education levels, the researchers determined that where participants now lived did not affect their sense of direction.
