It made no noticeable difference. I guess the hulled seeds and little bits of hull staying in the mix didn't make it that appetizing. Had to brush my teeth after it... the kernels stuck to my teeth.
But when about a month ago I found out that coffee was going to kill me, lol, I was looking for something that could help. I wanted to go back to drinking tea, but I can't drink tea without milk. And tea without milk also tests too acidic for me. That was also the problem with coffee. I have a sensitive stomach and a damaged esophagus.
So I looked for information on how to make almond milk at home, and found out that hulled hemp seeds made great hemp milk... Tested it and lo and behold, they do. Much smoother and richer than almonds.
And because I am a tea addict, I am drinking a godawful lot of hemp milk with my tea... and I am getting better. Healthier. Stronger. Younger looking. My wrinkles are smoothing out, which I didn't much care about, but others do.
My hair is beautiful. And muscle test says: I will get well... And even just the promise of that makes me giddy...
And the price is drinking something awesomely tasty, and being able to drink my tea? I am blessed.
So I am recommending it to my health clients. Turns out: hemp has something to do with marijuana. So in New Zealand it is not available. But they can buy hemp seed powder.
Muscle test says that if the hemp seed powder is make with cold method, like I have been doing it in tiny quantities in my coffee grinder, AND if it is reasonably fresh and well packaged, it is almost as good as the kernels.
So I am going to test it in my tea...
Here are the best I have found, on Amazon.com
If you don't have that in your country, feel free to email me a link and I'll muscle test it for you. I have tested eight products and only one tested yes. so please be careful.
Oh, and thus far I have only found one person for whom it is not recommended. It is likely that certain ancestries, like Native Americans/Mongols can't use it effectively. Ancestral differences really show up in protein sources. Ancestries with no cultivation of the land, I guess... for now.

Why This Grain-Free, Nut-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan Protein Needs to Be Every Fitness Buff's Best Friend
The best single plant-based protein out there: hemp protein. Hemp protein is not only delicious but it's also full of nutrients that make it a plant-based fitness buff's best friend! It's a perfect healthy smoothie ingredient that makes for a truly fabulous post-workout smoothie
Hemp protein is amazing for many reasons and despite that it comes from the cannabis plant, it does not contain any traceable amounts of THC, like the drug marijuana does. Hemp has been found to be one of the most sustainable plants that exists and one of the diverse foods for a variety of reasons and uses. There are many awesome reasons to consider using hemp protein if you're into fitness, looking to lose weight, or looking to build or maintain lean muscle mass as you age (which is awesome to prevent bone loss whether you're vegan or not.)
Check out the benefits hemp protein has to offer:
1. Complete Amino Acid Profile
Unlike many seeds, hemp protein made from raw hemp seeds contain all 20 essential amino acids, both essential and non-essential. For this reason, hemp is one of the best plant-based protein sources of all kinds. Complete amino acids are necessary for forming protein in the body, which fuels and repairs muscle cells, regulates neurotransmitter function in the brain, and regulates the nervous system function.
2. Protein Source
Hemp seeds have a fair amount of fat, but hemp protein is actually a very lean source of protein. Hemp protein is made by cold-milling hemp seeds. During the process, some of the fat is removed and the final product is mostly the natural protein found in hemp seeds. Lean sources of protein are beneficial for digestion, metabolism, and for promoting a healthy, lean body mass. Three tablespoons of hemp protein powder contains roughly 90 calories with only 3 grams of fat but 15 grams of protein! Hemp protein is also cholesterol-free and saturated fat-free.
If this is true, I wonder what the hemp milk be like... I'll get my order in two days, and I'll be able to report about it. I'll do it in the comments section of this article, most likely
By the way: I hate any article, any person, layperson of "professional" who thinks low fat is good for you. The fat that they are removing may be the most important part of this seed: EFAs... essential fatty acids. So I'll see specifically if they are still going to heal inflammation... Hopefully not all brands of powders remove fat.
3. Boosts Metabolism
Since hemp protein contains all essential amino acids and is a lean source of protein, it's a very effective natural metabolism booster. Protein requires more energy to digest than fats or carbohydrates, which means your body burns more calories just by consuming it. Since hemp protein is from a raw source of protein, it's even better for your body and metabolism.
Metabolism booster means that you have more available energy to you, not only that you can lose weight. People with sluggish metabolism are also sluggish in other ways... lol... dragging themselves through life. Needing high emotion drama to feel alive.
Hemp is also full of iron, magnesium and zinc. Per three tablespoons, hemp protein has 40% of your daily iron requirements, 60 percent of your daily magnesium requirements, and 25 percent of your daily zinc requirements. These nutrients are critical for optimizing energy on a plant-based diet. It's much better to get your nutrients from raw foods that your body can absorb than from highly processed protein powders or supplements.
5. High in Fiber
Most plant-based proteins contain a little bit of fiber, but most none of them besides chia seeds compare to the fiber found in hemp protein. Per three tablespoons, hemp protein provides 8-15 grams of fiber depending on the type of hemp protein you choose. That's more than a bowl of oatmeal or two-three whole bananas! Fiber is important for regulating your blood sugar, protecting your heart, aiding in digestion, and maintaining a healthy weight.
OK, I am at a loss here. If there has been any side effect, here is what it is: I am constipated. So fiber, smfiber... I an not pooping without help. WTF?
For such a healthy protein source, hemp is very inexpensive. Because it's only mildly processed and such a sustainable food, it can be purchased at a fair price, even in organic form. You can usually buy a pound of raw, organic hemp protein for around $15.00, which is around the same cost as those highly refined, cheap tubs of hormone-filled whey protein powders sold at chain superstores. Most organic hemp proteins are also non-GMO, cold-milled, and processed without any chemicals whatsoever. This low-cost feature is great if you're on a budget but looking to eat healthy without sacrificing quality.
I am not very price conscious, I prefer to be quality conscious. You get what you pay for... and most stuff that is cheap is also worthless.
On another note: I have clients who are very stingy with themselves. Some way they punish themselves for some failure... each their own. I do recommend the Unconditional Love Activator if you are one of these self-hating, self-punishing people, whether you deserve the punishment or not. Punishment keeps you low... and lifeless.
Hemp protein is also very tasty, especially in a smoothie! It has a deliciously rich, nutty taste when blended with other ingredients. Some great pairings to use with hemp are: blueberries, acai, raspberries, blackberries, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut milk, almond milk, spinach, chia, banana, and almond butter. You can also use it to bake with in replacement to flour or use it in a homemade dessert or protein bar recipe.
I am not into smoothies... ugh. But in tea: it tastes just like half and half. Yummy.
8. Very Low-Carb
Watching your carbs? You'll be happy to know that hemp protein is very low in net carbs. Net carbs are the amount of carbs left after you subtract fiber from the total carb count. Since fiber does not impact blood sugar levels or cause weight gain, it's not considered a net carb like sugar and starch are. A low-carb, plant-based diet may be beneficial for your blood sugar and weight.
9. Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Hemp also contains EFA's, which are essential fatty acids. EFA's are important for lean body mass, brain function, and protecting the heart. Hemp seeds contains roughly 1245 grams of omega 3 fatty acids in just 1.5 tablespoons!
The question will be: but what about the powder?
According to some experts, inflammation is the biggest source of pain, and disease. Inflammation is a reaction of the body to a perceived attack, chemical, physical, emotional.
You know, when a part of your body is suddenly swollen, filled with intercellular fluid... that is the visible sign of an inflammation on the outside of the body.
Most of us have no idea that the situation is worse on the inside.
A client of mine, like me, has leg pain. The culprit is stress: she drives to work in the Washington DC area, more than an hour each way... Murder.
A decade ago I commuted to NYC by car every week. 275 miles. I drove like a maniac... but I paid for it. My health plummeted. A non-medical test (RBTI) determined that I was near death... I guess had I had my methodology at the time, I would have had a 2-3-4% health number.
You can have shortness of breath. Difficulty to sleep. Headaches. Or get ill...
Hemp seed is a powerful anti-inflammatory... my guess is it is mainly because of the EFA content, but this guy blames it on everything else... Bah Humbug.
Hemp protein's greenish brown color denotes the natural chlorophyll found in hemp seeds. Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in plants that provides your body with alkaline protection against inflammation. Hemp protein is also rich in potassium, which can help balance your electrolytes and aid in water balance. This can also help prevent joint pain and muscle cramps, which all fitness buffs know is no fun to deal with. Hemp contains roughly 370 milligrams of potassium in just three tablespoons, which is more than twice as much as orange and more than twice as much as a cup of spinach!
Hemp protein is also one of the easiest proteins to digest. It's grain-free, nut-free, gluten-free, vegan, and very easy for the body to process. This makes it a perfect option for anyone on a 100 percent plant-based diet or someone just looking to add a cleaner protein to their fitness routine. You can also choose between regular hemp protein, higher fiber hemp protein, or fiber-free hemp protein depending on your health goals.
Oh, for fairness' sake, I used an article here... as the base of this post. Original content is in italics.
OK, the truth value of the original article is 10%. Why so low? Because it is full of b.s. Popular, attractive b.s. But Hemp is really good for those people it is good for.
Don't be stupid: ask me to muscle test it for you.
