I'm Brad Ervin, former chef, 25-year rock 'n' roll sound engineer, and now the CHO (Chief Hemp Officer) of Hippie Butter Hemp Seed Food Products. As I toured the world with such artists as George Strait, Bette Midler, Paul McCartney, and many others, I discovered, the "superfood," hemp seeds. During a tour in Canada, I became sick and exhausted from long hours and bad food so common in the entertainment industry. I was hungry and stopped at a convenience store that happened to carry hemp seeds. I bought some, loved the nutty, crunchy taste, and started to eat a handful a day..It wasn't long before I was feeling more energized, less stressed with a heightened sense of well-being. Since hemp seeds were too good to keep to myself, I brought home a small stock to my wife, a thyroid patient, who also found that the hemp seeds made her feel better, increased her energy and sense of well-being. She passed them along to her friends. Soon, many people were clamoring for my hemp seeds. I couldn't keep up with the demand and decided to start buying hemp seeds by the case but ran into a problem - it was hard to find U.S. companies who carried hemp seeds and finding quality hemp seeds was next to impossible. "There should be a company that makes a wide variety of high-quality hemp seed products in America!" That was my "light bulb" moment and three years ago I created Hippie Butter and launched Hippie Butter. HEMP SEED FAQs Q) Are products made out of hemp seeds legal? A) YES!, products made out of hemp seeds are legal in over 35 countries worldwide including the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany and France. Hemp seed (non-viable), hemp seed oil and hemp derivatives can be legally imported, sold and consumed in the USA. DEA Hemp Food Rules Q) Will hemp seeds products get me high? A) NO! Absolutely not. The trace levels of THC present in hemp derivatives do not provide anywhere near the potency (percentage of THC by weight) required to give the consumer a drug high. Q) Will I fail a drug test if I eat or use hemp seed products? A) NO! Recently, several studies have shown that based on the trace levels of THC present in today's hemp seed food and hemp skin care products, that the chances of being tested and obtaining a "false" positive drug test is very unlikely (just about impossible!).

A) The EFA linoleic acid found in Hemp seed oil, and its metabolite gamma-linolenic acid, has proven to have most beneficial therapeutic effects on the skin. Hemp seed oil contains 50%-60% linoleic acid and also contains GLA. The profile of the EFA found in Hemp seed closely resembles the skin's natural lipids, and therefore neutralizes the effects of dehydration, and thereby protects against dry skin. Q) What do hemp seeds taste like? A)Hemp seeds have a wonderful "nutty" flavor similar to sunflower seeds or walnuts. Hemp seed oil is "emerald green" in color, with a very light, nutty flavor.
