Chew and Brew: The hemp edition

Since the Stone Age, hemp has been used for medicine, food, oils even for making clothing and ropes. Long considered the boring cousin to marijuana which, c'mon was only used for a 'higher' purpose, hemp has been the workhorse of the family.

Now chefs and brewers are rediscovering this ancient 'weed' and using it as a flavor enhancer. Nutritionists give it a nod, saying hemp is something of a super food; its seeds are good for you; loaded with essential fatty acids, omega-3 and proteins. And it's legal.

It's time for Chew and Brew the hemp edition. Someone please call Jeff Spicoli because this one is totally awesome, dude!
