Did Buddha really eat nothing but hemp seeds?
I've been doing a lot of cannabis research lately, and I keep hearing and seeing - from tons of different cannabis-culture sources - that during his pre-enlightenment journeys Buddha's ascetic diet was entirely hemp seeds.
This is 'feasible' since hemp grew/grows lavishly in that whole region, and the seeds are one of the few 'perfect foods' out there (for all amino acids, essential fats, vitamins, minerals, etc.)
But I haven't been able to find any 'scholarly'/'historical' evidence or statements about this from 'trusted'/'respectable' sources.
Has anyone else come across any info. about this?
