Got Hemp Milk? The Benefits of Hemp Milk

Activist Post – by Joe Martino

Hemp milk is an incredibly nutritious and tasty alternative to cows milk as it supplies the body with essential nutrients without the harm that dairy causes to the body. For some, it is an ethical choice to not drink animals milk, for others it is an intolerance. Others choose to avoid it for reasons of making healthier choices while others drink it as they want the nutritional benefits and like the taste. Whatever the circumstance, is it possible that we are not making the most healthy choice by drinking animals milk? For those who are looking for an alternative to animals milk, hemp milk is one option you should consider.  

What is it Made of?

Hemp milk is a vegan product made of a blend of hemp seeds and water. The mixture provides a creamy texture with a delicious taste some may describe as ‘nutty.’ Unlike cows milk, hemp milk is easy for the body to digest and does not cause any of the health problems associated with milk.

Question number one for some of us might be: Is Hemp milk made from Marijuana? The answer is, no. Hemp milk is made from the seeds of the hemp plant which is legal to grow in various countries around the world. In fact, the United States is one of the only countries where you are not allowed to grow hemp. Possible concern some may have about hemp milk surrounds its possible levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Fortunately for those looking to drink this milk alternative, it is important to note that the hemp plant does not contain enough THC to have psychoactive affects. Further, the hemp plant has many incredible uses that can apply to various areas of our society. This is why there is such a great deal of controversy behind the reasons hemp is illegal to grow in the USA.


The hemp plant, including it’s seeds, offer a powerful punch when it comes to nutrition. In a single 8-ounce glass of hemp milk you can find the following nutrients.

900mg Omega-3 Fatty Acid
2800mg Omega-6 Fatty Acid
All 10 Essential Amino Acids
4 grams of Digestible Protein
46% of RDA of Calcium
0% Cholesterol
Vitamin A
Vitamin EVitamin B12
Folic AcidVitamin DMagnesium

And more…

From that stacked list we can see that hemp milk is a great source of nutritious protein and is capable of delivering the tough to find amino acid, GLA. Hemp milk is rich in protein and contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins A, E, B-12 and folic acid, and is rich in magnesium, potassium, iron and magnesium. All essential nutrients for a healthy diet and immune system.

Try Making Your Own

While hemp milk can be found in stores, mainly health food stores, if you are feeling adventurous, you can try making your own hemp milk. This will also allow you to try out the milk in small quantities if you are not sure if you will like it. To make the hemp milk you will need 1/2 cup of raw organic, shelled hemp seeds and 2 cups of purified water. To finish you will need a piece cheesecloth or a nut-milk bag. Blend the water and hemp seeds in a blender for about 3 minutes or until they are well blended. Once you are done blending, strain the milk through the cheesecloth and enjoy. Of course, it always tastes better cold so you might want to chill it first. This mixture should store in the fridge for about 3 days.

Final thoughts

If you are looking for a milk alternative and are not feeling rice milk, almond milk, coconut milk or oat milk, try giving hemp milk a shot. It is packed with nutrients and tastes great, in my opinion. Also, don’t forget that even if the milk does not fit your pallet, give hemp seeds a try. They are a super food that you definitely would want to consider having in your diet whether you are vegan/vegetarian or not.

    1. No, because THC is what causes the “positive” result in blood or urine testing, and ingested hemp oil-based food products have negligible THC. Of course, you could buy a cheap drug test kit at any major pharmacy to confirm my assertion.

      1. I have found out that the drug test looks for THC acid. At least that is what I was told by a test lab result when I was tested a few years ago. I was told that a positive test result could be contested by taking a spectograph test as the simple pee test does have a lot of false positives. Dr.s have also told some freinds of mine that do not smoke or use pot – they haven`t used pot in any form for about ten years or more and hey failed a drug test, This happened to two of my freinds lasy month.. The dr.s do not even like this simple drug test but because it is the cheaper test that this is the one used most is the simple pee test. I also had to take a pre employment test and I cleaned up for a month and I still failled a few years ago. Got retested a week or so later and passed. Those tests are unreliable and if possible would never take one.

        1. Well, a gas spectrometry drug test is pretty expensive, and the blood test isn’t much cheaper. If you have random drug tests where you work, then you may have a problem if you smoke pot, but not drinking hemp milk. Depending on your metabolism, you would have to stop smoking pot for 3-4 weeks prior to a pre-employment drug test. There are kits you can buy to substitute your urine sample with, but you should only use this method for an unscheduled, random drug test event. If you are that concerned, then go to a doctor and have them perform a drug test on you after you have consumed the hemp milk for at least a week.

          1. You don’t have to go to a doctor to get a test performed. You can go to, order and pay for your test online, go get it done, and get the results by email. I have had some lab techs claim that they have to have all sorts of ID, but that’s not so – there are instructions on the website explaining how to deal with the little terriers. Theoretically, though I’ve never gone to this extent, I suppose you could even do it under an assumed name provided you bought a prepaid credit card for cash under an assumed name and always remember to use your assumed name for this purpose. Of course, if you have insurance, you have to decide if you want to pay for all of this out of your own pocket to maintain anonymity or keep this out of your medical record.
