My husband took my 18 mo old to the ped today.  Apparently, the doc seemed a little concerned that we give my LO hemp milk to drink. He said that he bet if we did a urine test, my LO would show up with high levels of THC. 

 

Now, I did a lot of research and decided on hemp milk because of the high fat content.  My LO is allergic to nuts, so that takes nut milk out of the question. I also did not want to give him a lot of soy or rice, so that took those milks out.  I guess I never really thought about THC levels.  I couldn't quite understand what the doctor was concerned about. Was he insinuating that if it showed up in his urine, we may get questioned about being pot heads or something?  (Because clearly if you care about your kid's nutrition, you must be a pot head).

 

Has anyone else's doctor been skeptical of hemp milk?  Should I consider switching?  He's 18 months now, so I don't think the fat content is as big of a deal as it was before...plus, I still BF twice a day, and he eats either yogurt or avocadoes almost every day.

 

Any thoughts welcome! Thanks!

Your pediatrician is misinformed.  Hemp milk is made from hemp seeds, so it doesn't contain any THC.  Not even a trace.  Here's a quick article I found about it, but there are many others out there:

I wouldn't be concerned at all.  We do coconut milk here for the fat bc it was easier to find than the hemp milk.

Your doctor is incorrect. Print a reputable article and bring it to him so he does not misinform other people.
 

Believe me if hemp milk had thc it would be much more popular than it is.

This thread reminds me of when I used to work at whole foods and a bunch of teenagers came in and bought the hemp seeds out of the bulk department. When they came through my line they kept on talking about how smart they were for buying cannabis at WFM rather than a drug dealer....

I am not a vegetarian but HAD to comment on this when I saw it in New Posts.... But then I had a big glass of hemp milk and I'm too wasted to write anything coherent...

Seriously, this doctor is HIGH. I find this so incredibly laughable but also sad because he is so misinformed. Wow.

Also, who is gonna give an 18 month old a drug test? It kinda sounds like he is ignorant and has you in some kind of pot smoking hippie category in his mind. It almost sounds like harassment!

I would be looking for a new doctor ASAP.

Now pardon me while I poor some hemp milk into this bong LOL.

LOL I hope they ate those seeds and got  a little nutrition. Knowing kids that young though I bed they were WRECKED after eating them. I told my friends once I made "Special" brownies.... but the only thing special about them was the chocolate chips. They all thought they were so high. Silly kids.
