What are Hemp Seeds?
Hemp seeds are the small brown seeds from the industrial hemp plant, a species of Cannabis with less than 0.2% THC (the psychoactive component known for getting users high). Hemp seeds only contain miniscule amounts, we’re talking in the region of 0.06 parts per million of THC, so you will never in a million years get ‘stoned’ from eating hemp seeds.
Hemp seeds are a superfood. They have a rich nutritional profile, with health-giving benefits. High in protein, fibre and containing a long list of vitamins and minerals, the humble hemp seed could be the answer to boosting your immune system without taking extra supplements. Not all hemp seeds are created equal, and the seeds with the highest nutritional profile can be found in all Hempiness hemp foods, which we just love here at The Hemp Shop.
