Storage: Keep Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed refrigerated or in the freezer and use within 8-12 weeks of opening. You can also store unopened Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed in a cool dry place.
If I consume Nutiva Organic Raw Shelled Hempseed, could I fail a drug test?
No. Hempseed is not to be confused with marijuana. Although the two plants are related, hemp products contain only trace levels of THC and will not cause a psychoactive effect. If the only source of THC in your body is from hemp foods, eaten in reasonable quantities, it is virtually impossible to fail a drug test by ingesting hemp foods. Through a third party provider, THC levels in our products are tested and verified to ensure the levels are below 10 ppm (parts per million).
Are the hemp seeds in Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed the same as hemp hearts?
Yes, hemp hearts is another term for hempseed. They are different marketing terms for the same product.
Is Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed a raw food product?
Yes, our Organic Shelled Hempseed is made with whole, raw hemp seeds that have had the shell or hull mechanically removed from them. The final product is raw as well.

These little seeds are a great source of protein, as well as fiber to assist with digestive issues and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to help protect against cancer. Not to mention, the oil in hemp seeds also promotes healthy skin. Talk about tiny but mighty!
Nutiva is proud to be the first national organic brand to sell USA-Grown Organic Hempseed. Hemp was a vital part of the early American economy but was banned in 1958. Through extensive advocacy for legalization and research, Nutiva helped pave the way for its recent comeback. We've been advocates from the very start—in fact, this amazing crop inspired our name, Nutiva: NUT of Cannabis saTIVA. Today, we continue to fight for your right to nutrient-dense, organic foods made without chemicals or GMOs. We've donated $1MM towards programs that support hemp advocacy and agriculture.
