It’s a living thing and, like all the other living beings, has its storage conditions. So, it mainly depends on storage conditions, and as it’s repetitively been said, it will last for almost a year or so in the refrigerator or the freezer; it will continue like 3 to 4 months of shelf life. If your seeds smell like rancid, you could get rid of them. If you see sprouts on your seeds, you have two choices of one: immediately plant them on your farm or toss them. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-07-04T09:57:57-04:00Added an answer on July 4, 2020 at 9:57 am Hemp seed has a great shelf life, but it goes bad after a long time. Once opened, expect the hemp seeds to last for 3-6 months, but it can last up to 14 months if unopened. The secret for long-lasting hemp seeds is keeping them in a cool dark place where no moisture can enter. The seed can also be placed in a freezer, but make sure to put them in a plastic bag. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Cleverclogs 0 Questions 204 Answers 0 Best Answers 414 Points View Profile Cleverclogs 2020-06-19T11:32:15-04:00Added an answer on June 19, 2020 at 11:32 am If you buy a bag of hemp seeds, you can expect them to last around 12 months, providing you store them in a refrigerator or freezer. However, if you keep them in a pantry, this reduced their shelf-life to around 3-4 months. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp mhoffz 0 Questions 22 Answers 0 Best Answers 73 Points View Profile mhoffz 2020-04-25T21:05:45-04:00Added an answer on April 25, 2020 at 9:05 pm Yes they can if not stored properly! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Seymour Simone 0 Questions 96 Answers 0 Best Answers 202 Points View Profile Seymour Simone 2020-05-14T01:33:39-04:00Replied to answer on May 14, 2020 at 1:33 am What kind of environment should you keep them in? 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-05T22:30:16-04:00Replied to answer on July 5, 2020 at 10:30 pm Storing hemp seeds in a cool, dry place is recommended. Also, don’t open the container of hemp seeds until you plan to use them regularly, otherwise they’ll go bad within a few months. If you want your hemp seeds to last longer, store them in an airtight container in the freezer. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 461 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-04-24T21:37:47-04:00Added an answer on April 24, 2020 at 9:37 pm O yes, they can!

If they’re exposed to moisture, they may sour. If you’re wanting to ensure long-term storage of an opened package, you can always freeze them. Like anything, use your judgment and don’t rely solely on a date on a bag (: For seeds you’re planning to use to grow plants, like any other seed, the longer you keep it, the lower the probability you have for it to sprout. It’s best, if you plan to use seeds from previous crops, to store them in an airtight container in a cool, dark environment. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Molly24 0 Questions 4 Answers 0 Best Answers 27 Points View Profile Molly24 2020-04-06T22:21:09-04:00Added an answer on April 6, 2020 at 10:21 pm Hemp seeds contain vitamin E that makes protects it from oxidation and rancidity. It is best for about 14 months on the shelf and can last longer if kept in the freezer. It can go bad if you keep it open on the table. A lot of heat is also bad whether you keep it above your fridge or next to a toaster in the kitchen. The right temperature should be consistent with less than 15C (60F) for proper long term storage. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
