About the Berry + Hemp Seed Smoothie Recipe
Smoothies are one of our favorite ways to get dark, leafy greens into our system. With all the fresh fruit in this recipe, you won't even taste the green stuff! We also love adding hemp seeds for extra, tasteless nutrients.
Hemp seeds, also called "hemp hearts," are seeds from the hemp plant and are a great source of healthy fats, which allow our bodies to absorb all of the vitamins and nutrients they need.
When it comes to nutrition, hemp seeds are a wonderful source of:
Omega 3 fatty acid: helps with brain function, supports the cardiovascular system, fights inflammation
Omega 6 fatty acid: supports the brain, metabolism, and bone health, helps skin and hair growth, fights inflammation
Protein: used by the body to make muscles and tissue and can act as a source of energy when needed
Vitamin E: a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging properties that has shown effective for treating cancer, arthritis and cataracts

When substituting or adding cannabis-infused products, be aware of how many mg of CBD (or, if you're in a legal state, THC) are in each portion of the recipe you are making. The standard dose of CBD is 15-30mg, but varies based on tolerance, reason for use, severity of condition, etc. We recommend starting low and going slow; click here to learn more about dosing) and be sure to read our CBD Safety article and talk to your doctor before incorporating new cannabinoids into your routine.
