"As a vegetarian, I have been buying Hemp Seeds exclusively from Swanson's after checking many other sources. ... I buy Swanson's Hemp Seeds as they are not only organic, they are very reasonably priced." ~product review by FeelGreat

  • Complete nutrition from nature's perfect food

  • Certified organic; non-GMO

  • Natural source of omega-6 linoleic acid and omega-3 linolenic acid

Hemp seed has been called nature's perfect food for the simple fact that it contains more nutrition ounce for ounce than almost any other food source on earth. Hemp seed also delivers plant-based vitamins, minerals, fiber and essential fatty acids (EFAs). In fact, hemp seed's EFA profile is 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3, which is the recommended ratio for optimal health. Hemp seed delivers particularly noteworthy levels of linoleic acid (omega-6) and linolenic acid (omega-3) not commonly found in other plant oils. Hemp is also a natural source of complete protein (including all essential amino acids), which is unusual in the plant kingdom. Our Certified Organic Non-GMO Shelled Hemp Seed is packed fresh on the pristine Canadian prairies where the world's finest hemp is grown. Our whole seeds have a light, nutty flavor that complements a wide variety of recipes and smoothies.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 85 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love The Product I just wish the price was a bit lower and they had bigger bags. November 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great product from Swanson. Lower price compared to others, is organic some other similar priced ones aren't. September 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Be careful eating I eat these seeds on cereal every day. These are terrible. First off the seeds are not uniform . Some seeds are soft and some are hard like little stones. These have to be eaten very carefully or you will break a tooth. Nasty stuff. I'm not happy I bought two bags. September 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and great buy! I have bought organic hemp seeds from quite a few sources, and I am always disappointed they cost so much and i receive so few hemp seeds. I seem to always run out so fast! But i am very happy with this find from Swanson. The seeds are plump and tasty, the packaging is great with a resealable bag and it is plenty b/c you get two big packages for the price! You won't be sorry if you order them! September 5, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by This hemp seed is the worst I have ever tried. It is gritty and seems as if there is sand or something mixed in with it. Buy a better brand. July 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dirty, poor quality This hemp seed is dirty. It has too much dirt, stones and shells. The quality assurance for this product is poor. I very much regret buying trying the product before buying multiple packages. I suggest that Swanson take a close look at their hemp seed to determine if they should continue to sell it. July 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Certified Organic Hemp Seed Shelled I've never had Hemp that tasted so bitter and some of the shell was still in it.....just terrible. It wasn't even good in my organic snack bars. I put it in my freezer a year ago and still have not found a way to disguise it. I usually love to just eat hemp hearts off a spoon but not this brand. June 22, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too Many shells and hard black seeds I've ordered Certified Organic Hemp Seed before and it's just the naked hemp. This has crunchy shells and very hard black seeds that my husband almost cracked a tooth with. We're still eating them but mostly in smoothies. What a disappointment. " June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by it really does taste like chopped nuts! since using hemp seed 2X daily, I find I am less apt to hit the peanut butter so hard! I add to my oatmeal and to my yogurt every day, along with chia, flax & pumpkin seeds. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by hempseeds It tastes delicious; it is tempting to overindulge. The taste is similar to pistacios. April 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pretty Healthy I use 3 tbsp in every smoothie, along w/chia/flax seeds(1tbsp) from Swansons also. I feel so great and am having more healthy eating habits with other Swanson products. February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Price during the Hemp seed Crisis Greatest cost available during this shortage of hemp seeds. December 2, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mixed Reveiw I bought two bags of these Hemp seeds...Same Lot number on bags. Opened one bag,...It had a strange chemical taste, spit it out. Threw it outside for the birds. Opened the other bag...tasted it. It was OK. WHY would this be ? Will NOT buy again...Can't trust this product to be good. November 29, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bad quality I ordered 5 bags of Swanson hemp seeds twice. The first time the quality was excellent, and exactly what I was used to previously. However, the second order was quite different. The seeds were roasted! They tasted bitter and devitalized, were crunchy and were slightly darker in color. When I checked the package, it didn't say 'raw'. I returned my order and ordered the brand I used to buy, which actually says 'raw' on the packaging. I guess it's a hit or miss. Maybe I just happened to have a bad batch, but I rather not take the risk and just stick with my trusted brand :) Swanson has a lot of good products, and I use a lot of them, but this isn't one on my list. November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by hemp hearts these seeds are really good! full of omegas 3/6/9. has a nice nutty flavor! eat these in my cereal every morning! you wont be disappointed! July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! The "Swanson Organic Certified Organic Hemp Seed Shelled" I purchased was reasonably priced, arrived quickly & notably fresh after opening. I would buy this product again. Thanks, Swanson ! July 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shake with chia I am very pleased with the Hemp seed in my Chia shake. The Chia thickens the shake while the Hemp seed adds a good nutty taste to it. I use 1 tbsp of Chia (SW1206) and 1.5 tbsp of Hemp Seed. I keep the Hemp Seed in the freezer ..and it is now almost 3 months without any degradation. The Hemp Seed comes in a pouch that is easily sealed. The shake satisfies my hunger and I believe it to be very nutritious. May 25, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's OK Not real thrilled with the quality of this product, the hemp was dry and bitter. Will not purchase again no matter how good the sale price. April 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by yummy I really like the flavor of these, especially when salted and mixed with popcorn. They taste a little like raw pumpkin seeds. I also blend them to make shakes and homemade ice cream. April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by glad I bought this I add the hemp seeds to my Greek yogurt and it adds a nice nutty taste to it. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Great value for an organic hemp seed. I add this to my dogs' homemade meals that are red meat based to help balance the fat profile. March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best value ever!! In the past, I could easily spend up to $15.00 a pound for hemp seeds. This product is very good and very inexpensive. Will buy again! March 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Smoothie addition This is a great addition to ANY smoothie at the best price I've seen, and it's from Swanson. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for You and Yummy! This stuff is good in everything from oatmeal to yogurt, etc. It is full of omega 3's and fiber and all kind of other good stuff and it tastes like nuts! Yummy! December 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it I love the taste , price and hemp is the best seeds for your health. Add to your salads or smoothie. December 12, 2013
