Notes & Expert Tips

- Eating cannabis has a 6-10% bioavailability rate compared to a 30% bioavailability rate when used as a tincture and absorbed sublingually.

Benefits of Hemp Seeds
- Hemp seeds are low in saturated fat and have little or no added sugars, refined starches, and sodium
- Hemp seeds are what I consider to be a great source of plant-based protein for those who are adopting a more plant-based diet
- Hemp seeds and hemp seed milk are not only nut and/or tree-nut free, but they are also free of the Top-8 major allergens found in food, which account for nearly 90% of all food allergies in the United States.
Benefits of Spinach
- Spinach is a dark-green leafy vegetable that is rich in water-soluble vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins, minerals
- Contains a wide variety of phytonutrients
- Spinach contains a multitude of anti-inflammatory nutrients
