Recently I bought in grocery store edible husked Cannabis sativa seeds Can I start a plant out of eadible husked seeds? If no then why?
I'm asking if a plant will actually start out of husked seeds, not if it's legal to grow Cannabis.

Are you absolutely certain that the seeds you've bought are Cannabis sativa? I'd be very surprised if they are, they're much more likely to be Cannabis indica, commonly known as hemp seeds, and they are edible and relatively nutritious, like most seeds. They are also readily available in the UK in health food shops, unlike Cannabis sativa seeds. However, in law, there is no distinction between Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica, so generally, home growing of these plants is considered illegal. You may want to check the law for the area where you live, in case there's some exception.
Cannabis indica (hemp) is commercially grown here in the UK, mostly for industrial purposes, but it would still be illegal for an individual to grow their own, even though its not actually Cannabis sativa (this last being most definitely illegal to grow, certainly in the UK).

Following your edit to your question, your seeds are obviously husked, but should also be sterilized, meaning 'cracked' which should prevent them from growing - but doesn't always. I should add that, if they were not sold as Cannabis sativa, they will definitely be Cannabis indica, hemp in other words. If you still want to bother to try to grow them, sow some and see what happens. Here's a thread from 2008 on this subject, may be of some use, not sure
