Collection: Hemp Seeds and Hearts
Hemp hearts are what we call the centre of the hemp seed, or a hulled hemp seed. Removed from their shell, they are an extremely versatile raw culinary product that tastes great and is packed with nutrients, perfect in recipes or sprinkled on top of your favourite dishes. This is the format you’ll find hemp seeds on the shelves as the full seed with the shell on is very hard and difficult to eat.

Hemp seeds come with a range of health benefits, supporting the brain, heart, skin and inflammation support. They are regarded as one of the most nutritious seeds to eat, rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals. As a complete source of protein, they provide all nine essential amino acids which the body does not produce and requires from the diet.
They are packed with healthy fats in an optimal balance of omega 3 and omega 6 which again the body cannot produce and requires from the diet. Generally, most diets include too many omega 6s and too few omega 3s which can be balanced with the addition of hemp seeds in the diet.
Hemp seeds are a good source of fiber which can help reduce appetite, help with weight management and work to stablise blood sugar levels. They also continue an impressive array of vitamins and minerals, especially high in vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.
The high levels of the amino acid arginine found in hemp seeds may also help reduce the risk of heart disease. 1
Arginine is used to make nitric oxide that helps the blood vessels dilate, lowers blood pressure and reduces risk of heart disease. 2
The high amounts of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) in hemp seeds have been linked to a reduction in inflammation which can further decrease the risk of heart disease. 3
Hemp seeds are approximately 33% protein by weight, making them a great source of plant based, highly bioavailable protein. They are a complete source of protein, containing all essential aminio acids which our bodies do not produce, but rather require from our diet.

Thank you for understanding
What is Kombucha?
This ancient probitoic elixir is thought to have originated in Manchurian China over 2000 years ago, migrating across Asia into Russia and throughout eastern Europe. The claims to its probiotic health benefits restoring viatlity and promoting healing have preserved the elixir through generations and carried it around the world.
How much Kombucha should I drink per day?
If you have never had Kombucha before, we recommend starting slow – and going for around 200-250ml servings a day for the first few days. Our recommended dose is around 300mls per serving.
When will I receive my Kombucha bottles?
Order before midnight on Tuesdays, and if you are in Auckland you will receive on Thursday morning, and North + South Island on Fridays.
Due to stock availability, there may be a possibility of your order to take up to 2 weeks to arrive at your door. We appreciate your patience through this process.
What do I do with my empty bottles and boxes?
If you are in the Auckland area, you can return empty flattened boxes to us at the La Cigale French Markets. Here you can also refill used bottles, cutting out waste and making your bottles go another round.
You can also refill bottles at a growing list of Auckland Cafes and Organic Stores.
Is Kombucha safe for Pregnant/Breastfeeding women?
For safety purposes, we would recommend pregnant and breastfeeding women avoid drinking Kombucha at this point in time.
Is Kombucha Dairy Free/Gluten Free?
Kombucha comes with all of the probiotic benefits, but none of the dairy. OM Kombucha is 100% dairy & gluten free, meaning those who have dairy intolerances can still enjoy a dose of probiotics daily.
Does Kombucha contain alcohol?
Due to the natural fermentation process, there may be minute traces of alcohol present, but never more than 1%.
How long will my bottle last?
Kept in the fridge it will last up to 6 weeks. Kept out of the fridge, it will continue to ferment – producing a bubbly, and vinegary taste – not for the faint hearted.
Where else can I find your Kombucha?
You can find a list of our locations at local farmers markets and retail stores here.
