Watch: Are Hemp Seeds The New Superfood?

You won't get a high, but health-wise, hemp seeds are your friend. A light dusting of three tablespoons gives you 10 grams of protein, 3000 mg of omega fatty acids, and 25 percent of your daily zinc needs (hello immune system) - amongst other healthy bits.

Hemp seeds have been a trending 'superfood seed' for years now. They have a rich, nutty flavor, and are an effortless way to power you up via salads, soups, smoothies, and edibles.

It might even rival another trending food in the world of healthy eating - quinoa.

Quinoa is a great product, but hemp fills a different area of nutritional need, says Paul Benhaim, CEO of Hemp Foods Australia.

"It contains Omega 3 and Omega 6, essential fatty acids," he says. "It's the only naturally balanced plant-based source of that in the whole world."

Most people know that to consume alcohol and then get behind the wheel of a car is very dangerous — not just for the driver and passengers, but for anyone else sharing the road. For cannabis consumers, however, understanding levels of impairment is not so straightforward. To date, there is not yet a technology used by law enforcement that can accurately detect cannabis impairment similar to alcohol breathalyzers.
