Our products are THC free, but claiming “100%-free” is not strictly possible. Hemp Seeds may be regarded as “THC free” because if there is any THC present the level is so small and so close to zero that it often falls below the level that most scientific instruments can detect. What does this mean for you? Our experience is that in all our processed products, no matter how much you use, it will not result in a positive test for THC. It is certainly impossible to get ‘high’ from eating Hemp Seed products. To give an idea, you would need to eat between 500 and 1000 servings of Hemp seeds in one meal to get close to the level of THC that comes from smoking Cannabis and even then you would not get high because any THC from raw Hemp Seeds is actually the non-psychoactive form - THCa. Cannabinoids like THC are rapidly metabolised and do not build up in the body over time. So even a life-time of eating Hemp Seeds will not eventually result in high THC levels in the body.

As is discussed in another FAQ on this page, our Hemp Oil is made from Hemp Seeds, not Hemp leaves therefore contains little to no CBD (Cannabidiol) or THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) which are known to be strong pain relievers. Also, as we are not physicians we are not allowed to comment on the anti-inflammatory properties of Omega 3, 6 and GLA that are present in high amounts in Hemp Seed Oil. Please consult your physician for advice. Interested in hemp oil with Cannabidiol (CBD)?
When most people think “Hemp Oil” they are typically thinking about Hemp “Seed” Oil - the kind that is used for example as a salad dressing or skin moisturiser - and the one that we, Hemp Foods Australia produce. Hemp Seed Oil (as the name implies) is extracted from the “seeds” of the Hemp plant, appears translucent green, contains large amounts of Omega 3 and 6 but has only trace amounts of 'CBD'. There has recently been renewed interest in the oil that is extracted from the leaves and flowers of the Hemp plant, that has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine and healing. This is sometimes also referred to as "Hemp Oil' which can make it confusing. This Hemp "leaf" oil usually appears black and is a concentrated source of “Cannabinoids” including Cannabidiol (CBD). There are 500+ nutrients found in the Hemp plant, Hemp "leaf" oil also contains small amounts of Omega 3 and Omega 6 but nowhere near the levels found in "seed" oil.
