        Dear Home Office,

        Please see attached a link to products sold in Asda, Tesco, Aldi, Sainsbury’s and other smaller stores all over the UK which contain the same amount of THC(0.6% Pg/ppm) as the ” Charlotte web” CBD plant. (Which by your own definition is a “controlled substance”).

        I require clarification as hypocrisy seems to be at play here.
        I would like to be reassured that my government isn’t licencing the sale of hemp seeds(0.6%THC) to anyone, children included.
        Whilst at the same time preventing people from cultivating their own CBD medicine because it contains 0.6%thc.

        Is that amount of THC enough to impact cognitive function? Or impair driving reflexes?

        Thank you for contacting the Home Office with your request.

        This has been assigned to a caseworker (case ref 50808). We will aim to send you a full response by 23/11/2018 which is twenty working days from the date we received your request.

        If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us.

        Dear Home Office,

        Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

        I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office’s handling of my FOI request ‘Store bought hemp seed’.

        You failed to address the points raised in my original request.

        “I require clarification as hypocrisy seems to be at play here. I would like to be reassured that my government isn’t licencing the sale of hemp seeds(0.6%THC) to anyone, children included.

        1. Are the hemp seeds on sale with 0.6% THC legal?
        2. Why are you permitting these hemp seeds to be sold?
        3. Please provide me with legislation which permits hemp seeds with 0.6% THC to be sold over the counter to anyone including children.

        Buy Whole Foods Online Organic Shelled Hemp Seeds, 1 kg

        Top positive review

        Hemp is such a great food, however whole hemp seeds are tricky to work with. Even in a high speed blender such as a Vitamix You will be left with sharp grainy flecks of shell.

        Hence the prevalence of shelled hemp! It is so creamy and easy to blend as the hard fibrous shell has been removed just leaving the creamy fatty seed.

        This makes a great base for all kinds of creamy dressings such as mayonnaise, creamy dip’s and more.
        It’s also great in desserts – energy balls, puddings and pies. It even looks great sprinkled as a topping on muesli, smoothie bowls, salads et cetera.

        These seeds from Buy Whole Foods seem perfectly fine. I would certainly re-order. Tip – take a small amount from your bag and store in a sealed jar or tin in the fridge to Prevent rancidity.
