About Bhang Ki Chutney (Hemp Seeds Chutney)

Bhang Ki Chutney (Hemp Seeds Chutney) is a simple pahadi accompaniment popular in Uttarakhand households.

Bhang seeds are non-psychoactive; hence, this chutney is safe for all, including children.

What Are Bhang Seeds

The hemp or bhang seeds come from bhang (hemp, cannabis, marijuana plant). They don’t have any psychoactive properties, unlike the bhang leaves. Therefore, they are safe for adults and kids to eat.

Bhang seeds are considered very nutritious and can be used in many recipes. They can also be used to make hemp oil or hemp milk, a great substitute for milk for vegans.

Bhang ke seeds can be toasted and used as a topping for pancakes, salads, bread, waffles, etc.
