Many raw foodies know that eating too many nuts or seeds can be difficult with some people’s digestion, and they often therefore “soak” these items for 4-12 hours prior to eating, to deactivate the enzyme inhibitors. Hemp seeds do not need to be soaked in any way to be completely edible and digestible.
