No Complaints!Apr 30, 2013
By Sharon T
I love to snack on hempseeds!! They're very tasty and they have a texture similar to sunflower seeds which I love. They make a great addition to salads and other light dishes because they give you just enough consistency to help feel more full. Since finding these organic seeds, I've noticed a serious change in my eating habits which has really helped me to look and feel better! I keep a bag with me at work to munch on throughout the day.
There are instances where the shelled seeds aren't ideal though. For those, and for added flavor in my salads, I use hempseed oil (Nutiva Organic Hemp Oil 24 oz. + FREE 100% Cococare Coconut Oil - 4 fl oz) instead. It's all the same perks but in a different form. The taste is just as pure and if you blend the hemp oil and coconut oil together, you'll be hooked! It's the perfect balance of light and dark without being too heavy or bold tasting. I make up for my lack of omega-3 consumption with all my hempseeds. Even my husband loves them and he's a heavy chip and snack eater!

Inconsistent at best - too many hullsMar 05, 2012
By David St Thomas
I enjoy hempseed, primarily I sprinkle it over my salads to add a nutty and nutritious component.
I like buying this in bulk because it saves money over the expensive 1 pound or half-pound bags I can get at the store.
My complaint about this product is that you never know what you'll get. Sometimes it's fairly free of hulls (seed coats) and sometime it's just full of them
And they're hard to deal with - very hard pieces of shells that interfere with the enjoyment of whatever you are eating.
I guess you could spend time separating the pieces out, but that is a labor-intensive process and at that point it becomes more economical (time is money) to buy the 1 pound or half-pound bag at the store from a company that pays more attention to what they are packaging.
I kust got a new shipment and it is absolutely full of seed coat fragments.

just what i asked forFeb 10, 2013
By Danny S. Clements
i used this hemp during my month-long juice fast to sustain me as the pounds (and sanity) left my body. i make a half gallon of vegetable juice at one part of the day & fruit smoothie with hemp, cashews & chia seed in another. i HIGHLY recommend this if you're juicing to make sure you get enough omega fats & protein.

Love the Hemp!Apr 16, 2009
By Amanda C.
I really enjoy the hemp hearts. I have come to crave them. I am always looking for a good deal and this is indeed a great price for the qty. These come to abt 3 to 5 dollars less per lb. than what I can get locally. If I use auto ship it is 5 to 7 dollars less. My only complaint is the hulls of the 3 brands I have tried this has by far the most hulls and the only one with intact seeds. I doesn't take much to de-hull them but, it is time consuming. I realize "hulls are a good source of fiber" but, my teeth do not agree. I am tempted to pay a little more for less. If this is something that doesn't bother you I urge you to get it.

Always have some in the fridgeJul 04, 2012
By A. Davis
My husband and I couldn't be happier that we found these hemp seeds. Just purchased another bag as we go through quite a lot of it fast. The taste is somewhere between pine nuts and pecans, and is incredibly delicious. You really do feel like you're doing something great for your body just by eating it. One serving (3tbsps) contains 170 calories, 14g fat, 1g saturated fat, 2g carbs, 1g fiber, 11g protein and provides 16% daily iron. Excellent source or protein, so happy to have found it :)
