Our Hemp Tamales are naturally gluten free, made with extra virgin olive oil so they are zero trans-fat, traditional corn masa, nutritional nopal cactus from the Sonoran desert, flax seeds, chia seeds, and of course include the delicious rich flavor of 100% organic hemp! We like to enjoy them with a delicious tomatillo salsa verde or vegetable salsa!
