I was just wondering if hemp seeds/hemp hearts are safe? I thought I read once that hemp seeds are grown by wheat so they are never safe, but I really have no idea if that's true or just more circulating misinformation, so I thought I'd ask here. Are there any safe brands of hemp seeds?

Most Hemp seeds are grown on rotation with wheat, and pretty much all have a chance of contamination there are 2 exceptions. 1. Jarrow hemp protein is still batch tested gluten-free. 2 THE ONLY hemp Seeds I trust are from a Dedicated Allergy Free Company called GERBS look uphttps://www.mygerbs.com/product-category/seeds/ they sell the only 100% tested and gluten-free hemp seeds on the US market.   I personally buy the whole hemp seeds and eat about a lb a week normally, you can even make vegan Parmesan with them if you have a good food processor. I think I posed that recipe in the recipe section. They even featured it a while back along with a hemp pesto recipe I came up with.
