Re: Where can I buy Hemp seeds, flax seeds and kale?

I need hemp seeds for eating and I have tried some alternative food shops in Zurich but no luck so far. For those who don't know Hemp seeds are VERY nutritional!
Comments aside back to the original post which asked about finding hemp as a food source. What some may not realize is that Hemp seeds grown for food consumption are tightly controlled by all goverments involved. They are mostly concerened with the THC–the psychoactive ingredient found in hemp and therefore strictly enforce the licences of Hemp farmers.

Hemp Farming in Canada

Hemp is classified taxonomically as Cannabis sativa, so Canada’s three year old hemp industry is tightly regulated by Health Canada. Producers and manufacturers who want to work with hemp must obtain a license.

In 2000, Health Canada licensed about 12,000 acres of hemp production in Canada. While there has been activity in all parts of the country, hemp production has been concentrated in Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Farmers are only allowed to plant certified seed. Health Canada is very concerned about THC–the psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis–so all hemp planted must be an approved variety, all of which have less than 0.3 percent THC in them. Finished food products must have less than 10 parts per million of THC. This is a safe and generally undetectable amount.

Most seeds that Canadian farmers work with are of European origin. Canadian-bred cultivars, adapted to local growing conditions and having the most desirable qualities, are bred in Ontario and Saskatchewan and of course all hemp everywhere is GMO- and pesticide free.
Just google hemp seeds for nutrition and everything you you will find everything you need to know about the valuable source of nutrition coming from hemp seeds. I prefered the shelled hemp seeds known as "hemp hearts" they are absolutley delicious!!!
