Hemp Bread Is Nutritious, But Not Easy To Find On Store Shelves

October 16, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
The use of the hemp plant to make bread has a somewhat checkered legal history, thanks to the DEA’s efforts to ban hemp-based food products because they might contain traces of Cannabis sativa (marijuana). But hemp bread is apparently legal – food writer Carolyn Susman found loaves of the product (made by the French Meadow bakery) in the frozen food section of a local grocery store. The label claimed the sprouted whole grain product was vegan, kosher and low-glycemic. Its ingredients included wheat, organic flax, pumpkin and sesame seeds. The label also noted that the hemp plant was environmentally sustainable, needing no pesticides or herbicides "to flourish." But the next time she looked for the bread, it had vanished from the shelves.
