What is hemp seed oil?

We've all heard of and used olive oil, coconut oil, vegetable oil– but have you ever switched things up with hemp oil? Recently it has become trendy to ditch oils because of their fatty and highly processed nature. However, hemp seed oil is cold-pressed, unrefined and a much healthier alternative. It has a nutty flavor that is produced from raw hemp seeds and can be used for health benefits, whether it’s ingested in cooking or applied topically for skincare.

Hemp seed oil health benefits:

Hemp seeds are rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3 and insoluble fiber. They are a good source of tocopherols, which are Vitamin E antioxidants. They’re packed with minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus; plus micro-elements like strontium, thorium, arsenic, and chromium.

  • High in essential fatty acids such as omega 6 and omega 3, hemp oil can be effective in increasing immunity.
  • The essential fatty acids in hemp oil improve cardiovascular health.
  • With its high levels of omega-3, hemp oil is also anti-inflammatory when chronic inflammation is considered a leading driver in the most serious diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and cancer
  • Hemp oil counteracts aging skin as several studies show that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process.
