Hulled Hemp Seeds (aka Hemp Hearts)

About Hulled Hemp Seeds (Hemp Hearts)

Hemp Hearts are just the seeds from the marijuana plants without their shells.  They are legal in the United States because ones the seeds are de-shelled, they cannot be grown into actual marijuana plants.  The amount of THC found in hemp hearts is negligible – you would have to eat bags of it to test positive on a drug test.  Even still, the military has banned their soldiers from eating hemp hearts.
