Organic Shelled Hemp Seeds
Organic Shelled Hemp Seeds are derived from the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa). The hemp plant is known as one of the earliest cultivated crops and its many uses. It is used for textiles, wood, plastic and fiber for example. As you can imagine, since its many uses, it has been an integral part of life for many cultures. With shelled hemp seeds, the hard shell of the seed is removed and can therefore be eaten directly.
Organic shelled hemp seeds are also known as dehulled hemp seeds, hulled hemp seeds and hemp hearts. Since it is a highly digestible source of plant-based protein, our organic hemp seeds are great for athletes, vegans, and vegetarians.
