Hemp milk is hempy delicious, says Jim Leff. It’s like soy milk, but without the soy—pleasant and neutral, without that “I’m sucking on a thousand soybeans” problem. Good for cereal, good for coffee, good for asthma … it’s about 15 percent sweeter than it really needs to be, but a quick glance at the nutrition statement gives the impression that this stuff is much healthier than relatively nutrient-starved soy milk.

You will, alas, not get off on it, psychoactively. But it’s great stuff—$3.69 a quart at Whole Foods. “Back to the land, everyone. Gaia will see us through,” says Monsieur Leff.
