Hemp was a vital part of the early American economy but was banned in 1958. Through extensive advocacy for legalization, Nutiva helped pave the way for its comeback. Today, we continue to fight for your right to organic foods and have donated $1MM towards programs that support hemp agriculture.
frequently asked questions
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.
