Hemp oil or hemp seed oil is a popular oil commonly used in dietary supplements, cosmetics and culinary applications. Basic research suggests that hemp seed oil gets its health benefits from its high fatty acid concentration, antioxidants, vitamins and phytosterols. In particular the fatty acids alpha linoleic acid (omega-3), linoleic acid (omega-6) and oleic acid (omega-9) carry much of the health benefits in hemp seed oil. Hemp oil's fatty acid profile appears to be well balanced for human nutrition (~3: 1 la to lna ratio). This oil has a pleasant nutty smell and, a deep green color, which is a result of the high level of chlorophyll which is naturally present in the seed. * the hemp seed oil used in our product is organic, cold-pressed and unrefined.
