Spoiled, old hemp seed or re-cleaned whole seed screenings can be sold as birdseed. The value of grain sold as birdseed is only a fraction of the value of food quality hemp grain. Birdseed utilizes the whole hemp seed so the seed must be devitalized to ensure no possible future so propagation. 

A Health Canada approved and licensed facility must be used to process and package hemp for birdseed.

The CHTA often receives enquiries from companies wanting to source birdseed. It is important to continually check the website for potential buyers and sellers.
