Hemp is a variety of cannabis which is commonly used in producing paper and textile. For fitness junkies, organic hemp protein might just be for you as this plant contains 21 amino acids with 9 of those not found in the body. It is the highest source of essential fatty acid and unlike soy, is not commonly genetically modified. Hemp can be consumed as hemp seed oil, butter, milk, and even flour.
