Another big concern about producing hemp milk is that the hemp seeds must be traded in from other places around the globe, where cultivation of hemp is legal, since it is currently illegal to grow hemp plants in USA.
So hemp milk manufacturing producers often have to rely on procuring hemp seeds from framers in Europe and Canada, where growing of hemp plants for its milk and oil is perfectly legal in these territories.
