These scrumptious potatoes offer a crisp crust and a creamy interior that’s packed with flavor. They can easily be wrapped and reheated in the oven later in the week for a make-ahead meal.
½ cup raw cashews
4 large baking potatoes, scrubbed
3 Tbs. nutritional yeast
2 Tbs. coconut oil, melted
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1 ½ Tbs. yellow miso paste
½ cup finely chopped fresh chives, minced, divided
½ cup finely chopped fresh parsley, minced, divided
½ cup hemp seeds, divided
1. Soak cashews in large bowl of cold water 1 hour.

2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake potatoes 45 to 60 minutes on baking sheet, or until tender. Cool 15 minutes, or until easy to handle.

3. Drain and rinse cashews. Blend cashews with nutritional yeast, coconut oil, lemon juice, and miso in food processor until smooth. Transfer to large bowl.

4. Slice off top one-third of each potato lengthwise, and discard top skin. Scoop potato flesh into cashew mixture, removing as much flesh from potato skin as possible without misshaping potato. Repeat with remaining potatoes. Mix well to incorporate cashew mixture into potato flesh while leaving some texture. Add 1/4 cup chives, 1/4 cup parsley, and 1/4 cup hemp seeds. Stuff mixture back into potato skins.

5. Place potatoes on baking sheet, and bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until tops are golden. Serve garnished with remaining chives, parsley, and hemp seeds.

High School Hemp Gardens

Have you ever walked into a high school building and were almost knocked back by the large amount of CO2 in the air? It gets worse as the day goes on. Fortunately, there is a solution:

● Dr. Who on The Weed blog writes: Humans breathe in oxygen (O) and breathe out carbon dioxide (CO2). Plants do the reverse. They “breathe in” CO2 and “breathe out” oxygen (O). This is why plant life is an essential part of the worlds’ ecosystem. Without plants, CO2 levels would rise to intolerable levels. (Like in the high schools!) Plants use CO2 for growth. It is the essential building block for photosynthesis (along with light and water). Plants cannot grow without CO2.

● Hemp is the miracle plant of our time, breathing in 4x the carbon dioxide (CO2) of trees during it’s quick 12-14 week growing cycle. Dewey & Merrill. Bulletin #404. U.S. Dept. of Age. 1916

Conclusion: Every high school building ought to have a hemp garden in it to take advantage of the high amounts of CO2 present. The students could learn to grow hemp to provide 1) fresh air exchange program for the students 2) hemp seeds that the students could use to make foods 3) the hemp fibers could be used in “shop classes” to build just about everything.

Does anyone have a good reason why high schools are banned from this “healthy hemp” learning experience?

Canadian Hemp Industry

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada calls hemp “the world’s premier renewable resource,” having been used in food and fibre for 10,000 years. In 1998 Industrial Hemp was re-legalized in Canada. Currently over 100 farmers in Canada are in the business of hemp.

Canadian Hemp farmer Reuben Stone says “The American farmers recognize the opportunity they are missing out on, and that their government is handing it (hemp production) over to international players like us Canadians. The American farmer wants in and eventually they will be in. When that day comes we will have a 20 year jump on them.” “Re-introduction of controlled production caused a flurry of interest in growing and selling hemp in this country, …almost exclusively on the food oil and meal processing side.”
