Hemp Seed Oil
Cold pressed hemp seed oil is made from the seeds of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). The seeds are cold pressed to ensure that the temperature sensitive poly-unsaturated fats (Omega 3 & 6) are preserved. Please note that the oil from the hemp seeds contains only trace amounts of THC – the psychoactive component of the hemp plant (see note below) Hemp seed oil has a distinctive nutty taste and aroma and is a clear dark green colour. Hemp seed oil has a high polyunsaturated fatty acid content with a unique content ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 of 1:3, which is often described.
Cold pressed Hemp Seed oil is primarily used as a nutritional supplement. The oil is a valuable source of plant based Omega 3’s (Alpha-linolenic acid), Omega 6 and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), and therefore the application of heat (cooking & baking) should be avoided.
The oil can be added to smoothies, salads, or consumed as is.
The oil is preferably kept in fridge or in a cool space away from light, in order to preserve the healthy fatty acids. Use within 6 weeks of opening.
