Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant through cold-pressing. Hemp comes from the same plant family as cannabis (marijuana), Cannabis Sativa L. While the two come from the same plant family, they’re vastly different from one another. Hemp contains minimal trace amounts (usually never exceeding 0.3%) of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol – the psychoactive ingredient that causes a user to feel ‘high’).

More About Hemp Seed Oil

There are a number of health benefits associated with hemp seed oil and are a result of its high content of three polyunsaturated fatty acids; linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, and gamma-linolenic acid. Alongside this hemp seed oil also contains a ratio of omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid) to omega-3 fatty acid (alpha-linolenic acid) of around 3:1, which experts agree is ideal for health benefits in humans.

A dermatology study found that consuming hemp seed oil orally helps to improve symptoms of atopic dermatitis or eczema. Researchers believe this is due to the levels of fatty acids within hemp oil. Omega-3 fatty acid also helps to lower blood pressure in people with hypertension (high blood pressure). Hemp seed oil is rich in linoleic acid which studies have shown can significantly reduce total cholesterol and low-density LDL or “bad” cholesterol.
