Humans and animals have been eating hemp leaves for centuries. The leaves can be used in salads or as a garnish on any dish. Not only do the leaves look great, they also don’t taste too bad. One downfall is that the leaves are not as nutritional as the seeds, but that shouldn’t stop you from eating them if you choose. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp torijane 0 Questions 9 Answers 0 Best Answers 19 Points View Profile torijane 2020-06-20T13:59:15-04:00Added an answer on June 20, 2020 at 1:59 pm They are! They can be eaten in salads, or used as an edible garnish on a plate. Some folks will also use the leaves to make juice. However, the most common use of hemp as food is in the seeds. Have you ever had hemp seed bread? It is SO GOOD. Hemp oil is made from the seeds and can be used in cooking as well. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 189 Answers 0 Best Answers 388 Points View Profile Melody 2020-06-20T12:43:19-04:00Added an answer on June 20, 2020 at 12:43 pm Edible. Not delicious imo. Earthy. Taste like grass and dirt. Good in a green smoothie though. Every batch is a bit different. My daughter calls it “umami” so that might mean something to someone 30ish. Certainly doesn’t taste bad enough to keep me from eating them. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 561 Points View Profile Abed Pishdad 2020-06-19T09:51:36-04:00Added an answer on June 19, 2020 at 9:51 am Yes, although not as nutritional as the seeds, the leaves are edible and just as leafy vegetables in salads, you can consume them or press to make juice.

Yes! most things are “edible” depending on your flexibility of the word but i think they taste pretty gross tbh and wouldn’t make a hemp salad or anything. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Seymour Simone 0 Questions 96 Answers 0 Best Answers 202 Points View Profile Seymour Simone 2020-05-15T10:54:53-04:00Replied to answer on May 15, 2020 at 10:54 am I agree.

I have personally eaten hemp leaves before and they’re not only nutrient-dense, they also have a nice flavor! I recall a very slight spice to it, and it has the texture of a good salad item. I could definitely see them being consumed in smoothies, salads, teas, etc. I would highly recommend trying it! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 662 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-05-04T23:54:44-04:00Added an answer on May 4, 2020 at 11:54 pm The leaves are edible, and while not as nutrient-dense as the seeds/hearts, they still contain a number of vitamins and nutrients, and can likewise be considered a superfood. Personally, I’ve never tried them, and don’t find the idea of eating them (raw or cooked) very appealing… I imagine they would taste like a much more bitter and earthy green. You could probably “hide” them in a smoothie, though… However, I have heard of folks using the dried leaves in herbal tea mixes, and I think that would be a much better mode of consumption. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 656 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-02T18:22:33-04:00Added an answer on May 2, 2020 at 6:22 pm The leaves contain iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, fiber, and phosphorous. While not as nutritional as the seeds, it is still packed full of these vitamins. Raw hemp leaves are also full of powerful antioxidants known for their effects on aging skin. The raw hemp is also rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and rich in digestible globular proteins. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
