Hemp or soy or whatever, it isn't seed juice. It's a seed smoothie.

Great option for vegans. Rich vegans. They don't spend much time here. Why not flog hemp milk on their blogs?

If you eat meat, fruit and vegetables there's not much need to eat hemp. Why waste the food budget on $0.50-$1.00 per ounce oil? It's an expensive novelty like other dietary supplements.

Even if he was a Nutiva executive, Hemp seeds have a lot of nutritional value. They've been used by cultures all of the world as a dietary staple for millenia.

Are you serious? Hemp has been a food source for many, many years. Many cultures have utilized the hemp seed for its nutritional value. "Magic brownies" actually have absolutely nothing to do with Hemp, because Hemp cannot get you high. Get your plants straight. I'm not arguing that hemp foods are paleo since most are processed. BUT hemp seeds have nutritional value straight off the plant with no processing required, and it has been used as such in most parts of the world since the beginning of written history, and probably a lot longer.

Seriously? Other than brownies, which is a neolithic food, when did people EVER eat hemp in the past? It requires processing to make this stuff, which is, by definition, the worst kind of neolithic food. From wiki: "About 30–35% of the weight of hempseed is an edible oil that contains about 80% as essential fatty acids (EFAs); i.e., linoleic acid, omega-6 (LA, 55%), alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 (ALA, 22%), in addition to gamma-linolenic acid, omega-6 (GLA, 1–4%) and stearidonic acid, omega-3." 55% linoleic acid!!! GACK!!!

It is hemp juice not milk. Milk requires lactating which plants can't do. Sorry, Soy "Milk". Using hemp to make ropes or baskets might be paleo.

Hemp oil is high (pun intended) in omega-6's. See this previous hemp thread (pun intended): http://paleohacks.com/questions/6350/why-dont-you-use-hemp-oil#axzz1HT4maIb6

Check the ingredients. A quick search on hemp milk found me this:

Tempt brand hempmilk:

Hemp Nut Base (Filtered Water, Hemp Nut [Shelled Hemp Seed]), Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Tricalcium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Sea Salt, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Riboflavin, Vitamin B12.

Hemp seeds are always good for you - mix with cacao

Ok - just curious why I am wrong. Not an Nutiva exec, btw.

Just go for Manitoba Harvest shelled hemp seeds and hemp-seed butter. They're the best brand I've found. Delicious and Nutritious :)

All seeds and nuts are paleo.

Got milk? "Hemp milk is one of the most nutritionally value-packed milk options. Hemp milk is a great option for vegans, those who have allergens associated with whey protein or casein, or are lactose intolerant. Hemp milk is full of omega fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and protein - not to mention easy to make!"

Hemp Milk 1 cup hemp seeds 5 to 6 cups of water Sweetener: honey or agave

Directions: In a blender combine one cup of hemp seeds with five to six cups of water. Blend for two to three minutes until smooth. Use less water for a thicker option. Add sweetener to taste. Strain through a cheesecloth or strainer to remove seed particles. Keeps fresh for three days in the refrigerator. Great for coffee, cereal, or oatmeal.

Ok I know you are wanting to do the strict paleo diet but look at the nutritional value of hemp milk and ask your self if the faddish paleo diet is worth cutting out healthy foods because they aren't on the list. Use your brain and listen to your body.
