Looking for a unique, delicious, and healthy dairy-free alternative for your corn puffs in the morning? Perhaps you have just come in search of the astounding benefits that hemp milk can offer over other alternatives. Either way, you have come to the right place.

Hemp milk can be made in several different ways, but here we will show you how to make it using hemp oil as well as with dry hemp seeds. If it’s a THC filled option that you seek, then you can’t use the same recipes listed here by swapping out the hemp plant materials and using marijuana plant leaf trimming or colas instead. This is because you will need to heat either the mixture of the plant material to release the active cannabinoid which is not an included step here. This hemp milk recipe will not get you high as it’s made using a hemp species which do not produce high levels of THC and what they do contain is never activated during the process. Instead, it is used for its medicinal qualities and health benefits.

How to use hemp milk

The wonderful thing about hemp milk is that it is healthy and delicious and there is no limit to the amount you can drink in any one day. Hemp milk can be used in most recipes for baking, cereal, drinks, ice cream, sauces, and even as a refreshing cold drink as a replacement for your usual milk.
