Unless you are grinding these yourself, you want milled flax seeds. They will go through your GI tract undigested otherwise.

I grind mine in a coffee grinder, still an extra step but I feel like they have a longer shelf life.

You raise a good point, in that ground flax seed goes rancid pretty quickly once it is exposed to air. This is why you see flax seed oil in the refrigerated section at health food stores. You may have heard of linseed oil -- linseed oil is pressed flax oil, and once it oxidizes it "clots" so thoroughly that it is still used as furniture varnish.

The realistic way to go IMO is to get ground flax meal at around $3-4/lb at a grocery store (Wal-Mart has it in the baking aisle) and then freeze it once opened. It doesn't clump when frozen, so it's easy to spoon out. If you want to grind flax seeds yourself, I suppose that would be better yet.

How quickly. I am definitely planning on grinding mine(got dry blade container from vitamix coming soon), but i mean if i grind lets say 2 week batch will that be ok or will it go rancid before then?

A 2-week batch would be fine in the fridge in an air-tight container. You can look at flax seed oil in the refrigerator section at a health store and most groceries -- I think it usually has a 4- to 6-week expiration (but HAS to be kept refrigerated). I still recommend keeping the ground flax in the freezer; I don't really see a reason not to do that, unless you just don't have space. You wouldn't freeze flax oil because it would just be a blob you couldn't pour, but frozen flax seeds/mulch stay separated.

Btw, you can get flax flower seeds in the lawn department at a Wal-Mart, but I would not personally trust that -- who knows how it has been handled.
