But after reading this news story today -
Hemp food products approved for human consumption in Australia and New Zealand
"It will soon be legal to consume hemp food products in Australia and New Zealand, after a landmark decision made in South Australia.An ongoing campaign to change food regulations culminated in a meeting of federal and state food ministers today, where it was decided low-THC hemp seeds were fit for human consumption.
To be clear, hemp foods sold in Australia are low enough in THC (the hallucinogenic substance found in marijuana) that you can't get high from eating them.
Before today, hemp fell under a classification that prohibits all species of cannabis from being added to food, or sold as a food.
The change should come into effect in both countries in about six months' time."
