If you’ve chosen to give hemp seeds a try, you’ll quickly find out that there’s a lot of options you can choose from.
When looking for options online, it's easy to get confused because there are lots of small boutique brands out there that you may not have heard of. You can also purchase hemp seeds through various online sources.
We’re here to help. Below are the top things that you should consider when purchasing hemp seeds:
1. What kind of hemp seed should you buy?
Hulled hemp, often called hemp heart, is a whole hemp seed with crunchy outer skin removed. Removing the skin also makes hemp heart more nutritious as it increases the overall percentage of protein and essential fatty acids.
In addition to peeled and roasted hemp seed, manufacturers add hemp seed as the main ingredient for hemp sticks or spreads. Depending on how you want to eat hemp seed, your options are many.
2. What brand should you buy?
It is now relatively easy to find hemp seeds online via Amazon and Google. If you are looking for exclusively raw or roasted hemp seeds, we would recommend buying through Amazon.
If you are looking to purchase other types of hemp seeds products (such as flax sticks or flax spreads) there are actually several local brands that offer delicious options.
