No, this post is not about Pot, Weed, 420, Ganga, Dope or Herb. Nope, we are talking about Grass…Grass-fed beef. It’s a pot joke get the Joint…ah, I mean, point.

When I saw the Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) deal at my local organic store for grass-fed beef…I knew it was time to try the better beef.  I still could not help imagine that the grass that farmer feed the cows was marijuana.  So, here is my even better beef Grass/Weed Cannabis Fed Cows.

To be clear, grass-fed cattle basically eat, yup you guessed it…grass.  Any other cattle diet includes: grains, corn or other by-products would not be grass-fed forager cows.

With all joking aside, The following is information and links to some real Benefits Of Grass-Fed Beef.

“Although grass-fed meat is low in “bad” fat and six times more of a type of “good” fat called “omega-3 fatty acids.”

Omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in every cell and system in your body…

Omega-3s are essential for your brain as well. People with a diet rich in omega-3s are less likely to be afflicted with depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder (hyperactivity), or Alzheimer’s disease.
