Safety of raw black eyed peas (cowpeas) ?

Does anyone know if it is safe to eat the entire fresh green pod harvested from the black eyed pea plant? I grew some from sprouts and I ate a pod with the immature beans inside and it was delicious! It seemed meant to be eaten such a way and the pods would be good in salads. I just need to know if it safe to eat them. I tried to find out by googling cowpeas raw among other terminological sequences but it was to no avail. If anyone can help me on this, it would be much appreciated! :-)
