Do I need to soak chia and hemp seeds before adding them to my NutriBlast?

I just received my Nutribullet for Christmas and I just purchased both chia seeds and hemp seeds. The lady at the health food store told me that I should soak the chia for 10 minutes even if I am adding it to my Nutriblast. Is this necessary and what do I need to do with the hemp seeds? Can I just add them in before I blend? Thank you!

Hi! I work at a health food store myself and I know that if you soak chia seeds they start to gel :S I think it's better to add those in and drink right away so your smoothie doesn't get too gelled and unpleasant to drink! The Nutribullet can break down whole chia & hemp seeds no problem :)
I made a smoothie this afternoon n just tossed a handful in with my fruit...no soaking. Was yummy 😊
