With, or without, the coating? I would guess that they might be a little scratchy with the "shell" on (and they have a slight point at one end) ... a single scrap along very fine sandpaper should sort that out.

Without the shell they won't last a very long time because of the high oil content, and may (I haven't tried it, so I don't know with these particular seeds) discolour slightly where they touch the soap (most botanicals do - they tend to turn brown, which shouldn't matter too much with these seeds).

In other words, as a temporary decoration on top of soap, I personally wouldn't, but I can't see the harm in it.

Hemp seeds are good to eat, but even if finely powdered, they would add nothing to the soap except scratchyness. Hemp oil, however, is very nice in soap.
