Are hemp seeds permitted in new zealand?

The sale of hemp seed oil as food is legal in New Zealand. Hemp seed oil is the only hemp-derived product legally sold as a food or added to a food in New Zealand. Read about the regulations that apply including the dietary supplement regulations.
Source: New Zealand Food Safety Authority
Under the Food (Safety) Regulations, it is not legal to sell any hemp-derived product other than hemp seed oil as a food or added to a food. Hemp related products that cannot be sold for food or added to food products in New Zealand include:
* whole hemp seed
* hemp seed nut
* hemp seed protein.

Please can you help me:
