Hemp seed foods and the Food Standards Code
The plant Hemp seed foods may only be legally sourced from low THC Cannabis sativa plants. Cannabis sativa is considered to be low THC if the leaves and flowering heads do not contain more than 1% THC

. All other species of Cannabis plants are prohibited in food.
Only foods derived from low THC hemp seeds may be sold legally. This means that the sale of food made from the leaves, flowers, buds, stems, or any other part of the Cannabis sativa plant is prohibited. Seeds for retail sale must be hulled and unable to germinate, although viable unhulled seeds may be used in the production of hemp seed foods , for example, crushed to produce hemp seed oil.


The amount of THC which is permitted in hemp seed foods is provided in section 1.4.4—6 in the Food
Standards Code. These limits are expressed in terms of total THC (mg/kg), which is the combined amount of THC and its acid form, delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THC-A). Both chemical forms are considered because non-psychoactive THC-A is converted to psychoactive THC at high temperatures, for example, during cooking.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

THC and CBD belong to a class of compounds called cannabinoids. Cannabis sativa plants contain over
one hundred cannabinoids, although most are found in trace amounts. Unlike THC, CBD does not appear to have any psychoactive effects and in recent times has been of interest for its potential therapeutic properties.
Only the very low levels of cannabinoids naturally present in or on seeds are allowed in hemp seed foods

This restriction prohibits the fortification of hemp seed foods with cannabinoids, and ensures that rigorous cleaning methods are used to reduce any cannabinoid contamination of seeds.
The level of CBD in food for sale must not exceed 75 mg/kg5
. This limit was put in place to distinguish hemp
seed food from some medicinal cannabis products.
Oils with a high CBD content (CBD oil, CBD hemp oil, and cannabis oil) which are extracted from the
flowers, leaves and stalks of Cannabis sativa, cannot be sold as food because of the requirement that
hemp seed foods be derived only from seeds
