Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hemp?
The Latin name for hemp is cannabis sativa. It grows in moderate climates. Both the fibre and the seed have been used by people around the world for thousands of years, as it is very easily grown, and has many benefits.

There are about 500 different varieties of cannabis sativa, and they can roughly be divided into 3 categories:

  • useful for fibre
  • useful for oil
  • useful for medicine and/or recreation (also known as marijuana)

Different parts of the plant are used depending on what you want to do with it. If you are growing a fibre variety, you will use the stalk. It has thousands of used from car parts (in the form of non-wovens or compressed into polymers) to wedding dresses (in the form of a hemp-silk blend). If you are growing a food and/or oil variety, you will use the seed. If you are growing a drug variety, you will use the bud and perhaps the leaves.

Where does Ruth's Foods get its hemp from?
Ruth's Foods' sister company, R&D Hemp Inc., contracts directly with family farms on the Canadian prairie. They take pride in knowing everything about their hemp, from the ground up.

R&D Hemp contracts exclusively for Certified Organic hemp seed.

Do hemp oil and flax oil provide the same benefits?
No. While they both contain both Omega 6 and Omega 3, they do so in inverse proportions. In other words, the Omega 6:Omega 3 ratio in hemp is roughly 3:1, while in flax its 1:3. In addition, flax contains no GLA.

Additionally, the non-oil part of the hemp seed is very rich in protein, while the non-oil portion of the flax seed is rich in lignans, a valuable cancer-fighting nutrient.

Are Hemp Products legal in Canada?
Yes. In April, 1998, Health Canada amended the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act by adding regulations to make it legal to grow hemp in Canada. In order to grow hemp, you must obtain a licence from Health Canada. Information on the Hemp Regulations is found on Health Canada's web site.

What's the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Many people confuse hemp with marijuana, but hemp is not psychoactive. The psychoactive element of marijuana, THC, exists in hemp, but in amounts so small as to be insignificant. Whereas beer contains about 10 times the alcohol of de-alcoholized beer, marijuana contains about 60 times more THC than hemp.

Can you get high from eating hemp products?
Not a chance. In compliance with government regulation, Ruth's Foods' hemp is tested in the field, and their hemp seed, oil, hempnut and hempmeal are tested before being added to their products. They are required to have less than 10 ppm THC (the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana) in their hemp products, but in actual fact, NO THC can be detected in their products.

Will I fail a urine drug test because I eat Ruth's Foods?
If the only THC in your diet comes from Ruth's Foods, then you have nothing to fear from a urine test. Ruth's Foods are a signatory to TestPledge. TestPledge has determined through science-based studies the level THC in hemp that would trigger a positive urine test. TestPledge signatories agree to keeping the THC in their products below those levels, to guarantee that a positive urine test will not be triggered through the use of their products.

Does Ruth's Foods use certified organic hemp?
Yes. With only one exception, the hemp in their products is certified organic. They would love it if their whole line were certified organic, but their main goal is to introduce hemp food into peoples' diets at reasonable prices. When that can be done with certified organic ingredients, they will certainly do so!

Are Ruth's Foods GMO free?
Ruth's Foods strongly believe in GMO-free foods. They are very careful in product development to screen for ingredients from non-GMO crops. The Canadian Council of Grocery distributors has banned foods from the major supermarkets that are labelled GMO-free. Although their products are ALWAYS GMO-free, they have been forced to remove notice of this from the labels in order to gain distribution through major supermarkets. Please be assured that they do not use ingredients from genetically modified crops in any of their foods.

Is it safe to use Ruth's Foods hemp products while pregnant (or nursing)?
Ruth's Foods feel that all of their foods are safe during pregnancy (and while nursing). On the other hand, to their knowledge, there has not been a study of hemp and pregnancy, just many healthy pregnancies. However, whereas they feel there is no problem, only good health to be had, they do not dispense medical advice. If in doubt, please consult your doctor.

    I recommend this product!
    Very tasty with a sweet and tangy flavor and a texture that is chewy with a bit of crunch!! The cranberry flax flavor is equally good and I want to try their other varieties.
