Hemp Seed
Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What do Shelled Hemp Seeds taste like?

A: They have a pleasant “nutty” taste somewhat like the taste of sunflowers seeds, but have a softer texture. When blended in with a protein shake or with yogurt, you do not much taste the Shelled Hemp Seed at all.

Q: Do Shelled Hemp Seeds require refrigeration once opened?

A: It is best to keep them refrigerated or in the freezer. However, they will store up to a year at room temperature. The nutritional content will be higher if they are kept refrigerated or frozen. You can also store unopened Hemp Seed products in a cool dry place such as a basement.

Q: What is the recommended amount to take each day?

A: 3-5 tablespoons per day with breakfast, so you can enjoy the energy and protein throughout the day.

Q: Are Nutiva’s Shelled Hemp Seeds raw?

A: Yes, Nutiva’s Shelled Hemp Seeds are cold-processed (under 104°F) from raw, live hemp seeds. Nutiva utilizes a mechanical process to remove the hard shells, yielding delicious shelled hemp seeds. The hemp seeds are stored in refrigerated warehouses at temperatures below 40°F. The Shelled Hemp Seeds are not heat sterilized like many other brands are.

Q: What Makes Hemp Seed Different Than Flax and Other Seeds?

A: Hemp seed has a perfect ratio of EFA’s (essential fatty acids) and should be eaten in quantity every day. The ideal EFA ratio for human health is 3 or 4:1 omega-6 over omega-3. Flax seed has the opposite balance of 1:4 omega-6 over omega-3. Flax seed, and most other sources of EFA, when eaten in quantity everyday, can create dangerous EFA imbalances.

Hemp seed is one of the only plants in the world to contain sizeable amounts of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA may play an important role in the etiology of many diseases. Recent studies have shown that GLA and its metabolites are effective in the suppression of inflammation, in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, atopic eczema, and certain cancers such as malignant human brain giloma.

Also, unique to hemp is a powerful protein called globule edestins. This protein is only found in hemp seed and is uniquely similar to globulin found in human blood plasma.

Q: Is It Safe For Everyone?

A: Shelled Hemp Seed is a complete primary food source and should be eaten in quantity everyday.

Shelled Hemp Seed is one of the safest foods on the planet. It is THC free, pesticide free, gluten free, peanut free, and it is extremely easy to digest. It is excellent for those who suffer from food allergies, digestion problems, stomach sensitivities, and is perfect for those who are sensitive to pesticides.

Shelled Hemp seed contains no THC — 0.00%. You cannot get you stoned or high from hemp hearts, sorry!

Q: Are Shelled Hemp Seeds legal?

A: Yes, Shelled Hemp Seeds are legal. They are shipped across many international borders without incident. The case HIA v DEA established that hemp foods are exempt from control in the Controlled Substances Act. An excellent overview of the case can be found on the Vote Hemp web site on their DEA Hemp Food Rules page. Although the hemp plant is categorized as Cannabis Sativa, Hemp Seeds contain 0.0% THC (the chemical substance which gives marijuana its psychoactive properties).

Q: Can I get high from eating Shelled Hemp Seed?

A: No, Shelled Hemp Seeds contain 0.0% THC.

Q:What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

A: Marijuana and hemp both come from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa L., but from different varieties. There are different varieties of Cannabis, just as Chihuahuas and St. Bernards are different breeds of dogs, Canis familiari.

Marijuana is the flowering tops and leaves of psychoactive varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their high THC content.

Hemp, also referred to as industrial hemp, are low-THC varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their seeds and fiber. The small amount of THC (0.01%) in industrial hemp is found only in the leaves. The seeds do not contain THC.

BERRY HEMP SMOOTHIE RECIPE
1 cup frozen berries (any type you like)
1/2 frozen banana

3 tablespoon hemp seeds

Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until you have a thick, creamy smoothie. Add water to thin out as needed.

Makes 2 servings.

*Note: full fat coconut milk is very rich and high in calories and healthy fats. If you want something lighter, try swapping with almond milk or hemp seed milk.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE HEMP MILK RECIPE
1/2 cup hemp seeds
3 cups filtered water

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 pitted date

Pop all the ingredients in the blender and blend for 60-90 seconds or until everything is blended to together and you have a light creamy milk.

CHOCOLATE COCONUT HEMP HEART BITES RECIPE
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup of almond butter
1/4 cup hemp seeds
3 tablespoons of maple syrup (which could also be honey)
3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
pinch of salt

Gently mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl until everything is well incorporated and looks like a thick dough.

Grab about 1 tablespoon of the dough and shape into a ball. Then this step is totally optional but I like to roll the outside in a few more hemp seeds as well.

Place on a rimmed baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, and repeat until you have worked through all the dough. You will have about 15 balls.

Pop in the fridge to set for two hours and then transfer to an airtight container. They will last up to 2 week in the fridge.
