    GUELPH, Ont. -- Christina Anderman sheepishly admits she has been
    experimenting with hemp-based ice cream since 1997 - one year before the
    federal government made it legal once again for Canadian farmers to grow
    hemp. "I used seeds imported from Asia," she said. "It got a lot easier in
    1998 when Canadian farmers were allowed to grow hemp."

    Now Christina and husband Robbie buy directly from Ontario farmers, often
    stopping by to check on crops on their way to various trade shows to
    promote their Cool Hemp ice cream and other products.

    The Andermans were among the more than 130 exhibitors at last weekend's
    24th annual Organic Agriculture Conference and Organic Expo at the
    University of Guelph, and were also among the busiest.

    Christina Anderman acknowledged the idea of making ice cream from hemp
    naturally attracts a lot of attention, particularly among the predominantly
    young crowd that wandered about two floors of displays in the University

    "Some people wonder whether you can get high from eating it, but of course
    you can't."

    Commercially grown hemp does not contain THC, the chief intoxicant in marijuana.
