It’s being hailed as the newest super food.

Hemp will be legal to consume in Australia from next week, and foodies say it will be the next big thing in cafes and supermarkets.

Hemp Foods Australia CEO Paul Benhaim says the seeds are a super food with a nutty flavour, but there’s no hallucinogenic effect.

“No, you are not going to go off your trolley – except for with health and happiness,” he told Ross and John.

He said hemp had numerous health properties.
