Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Hemp seeds from the hemp plant (cannabis sativa) are naturally loaded with nutritional value, boasting all of the essential amino acids and fatty acids the body needs. These whole hemp seeds arrive with their hulls and shells intact, but once you crack into them, you'll discover a huge variety of nutritional and medicinal applications.
Taste and Uses of Hemp Seeds
Hemp seeds have a pleasant nutty taste and crunchy texture. Snack on the raw seeds throughout the day, toss them into salads or substitute them for nuts in your favorite baking recipes. If you're looking for an alternative to dairy milk, try blending one part hemp seed with four parts water to mix up your own hemp milk. You can even buy whole hemp seeds to make your own soothing skin care solution--try grinding the seeds into paste with a mortar and pestle and mixing it with other natural skin care substances like aloe vera gel or our raw organic cacao butter.
Hemp Seeds: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut loves these nutrient packed seeds! They have all essential amino acids and healthy fats, and are a great addition to salads, oatmeal, or stir fries, giving them an extra crunch. You can also grind them and add them to a smoothie.
Health Benefits of Hemp Seeds
As a dietary supplement, hemp seeds provide a hearty helping of simple proteins, a perfect balance of essential acids, and a blend of rich minerals and antioxidants.
1) Protein Powerhouse: Hemp seed is valued for being a complete protein, containing all 21 amino acids, including all 9 essential amino acids. It's important to consume essential amino acids through food because our bodies cannot produce them naturally. A single serving of hemp seeds contains 11 grams of protein. Between 1/4 and 1/3 of hemp seed by weight is pure protein, and hemp seed protein is distinctive for being amazingly easy to digest.
2) Perfect Balance of Essential Fatty Acids: Hemp seed contains an ideal balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, in a proportion of 3:1. These fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the body but are required to support a wide range of cellular processes in the body, including the proper function of the heart and brain. Hemp seed is an even more potent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids than flaxseed, which is renowned as a health food staple.
3) Tons of Nutrients: Hemp seeds are also an excellent source of vitamin E, zinc, iron, and magnesium. Vitamin E and zinc are potent antioxidants that protects cells against the damaging effect of free radicals. Iron helps deliver oxygen-rich red blood cells throughout the body and magnesium plays a role in hundreds of chemical reactions in the body.
4) Heart-Healthy: A 2013 study published in the European Journal of Nutrition found that hemp seed consumption could reduce elevated blood pressure in hypertensive rats. The research suggests that hemp seeds may offer benefits to prevent and treat hypertension.
Hemp Seeds Storage
It's best to keep hemp seeds refrigerated in an airtight container. If you purchase a 5-pound bag, consider putting 1 pound of the hemp seeds in an airtight container in the refrigerator for daily use and freezing the rest.
Birds Eat Hemp Seeds, Too
Although us humans love these seeds for their great taste and powerful nutrients, we're not the only ones in on the secret. Pour a few handfuls into your outdoor feeder or just scatter it on the lawn to see what a popular item hemp bird seed really is! You can mix it into your existing bird feed blend to attract a wider variety of species, or just put it out by itself--grosbeaks and cardinals in particular love to eat hemp seeds.*Per United States regulations, these hemp seeds have been heat sterilized*

“Funny story. I received an email from Nuts Online saying my package had arrived and I thought.. I didn't receive any packages. So I opened the front door, fully expecting to see nothing but a "Welcome" mat and some dead leaves I need to sweep off the porch and, there it was! How did they know?!? Okay, not that funny a story but, it's proof that Nuts Online has their stuff together, and has some insanely cool behind-the-scenes web master tricks going on.
I broke into the packages [8:30am] and started snarfing down the contents. [dates, pistachios and goji berries] FANTASTIC quality and freshness! I can't wait to make Hemp Milk from the 5lbs of hemp seeds I bought... at a fantastic price too!
High quality resealable packages and a sense of humor about the nut business :)
I LOVE finding a GREAT online company and Nuts Online is a 10 out of 10! 5 Stars!
Thanks Nutty Family!”
