You can use ready-made hemp products: stack, butter, sauce or prepare your own at home.

  1. Hemp butter is made of roasted (at low temperatures, as carcinogenic substances develop at high temperatures) and ground seeds or seeds mashed in a masher.  Add salt, pepper to taste.
  2. If the hemp butter (stack ) appears to be intense in taste, it can be confused with butter or to prepare a sauce - add a few tablespoons of neutral oil.
