» What is Hemp Seed Oil?

Hemp Seed Oil is an exceptional source of EFA’s; the essential fatty acids that we must obtain from our daily diet because, like some vitamins, we can't produce them on our own.

Hemp seeds are the most balanced and richest natural single source of essential oils. Hemp Seed Oil is nature’s most balanced oil for human nutrition (3:1 LA to LNA ratio) and is easily digestible. It is also rich in a rare protein known as globule edestins which is very similar to the globulin found in human blood plasma.

Simply add to food to improve both the flavour and nutritional content. Take 1-2 teaspoons (5-10ml) daily.

Hemp Seed Oil should not be heated because this will dramatically reduce its beneficial effects and destroy many of the essential fatty acids. Hemp Seed Oil can be added to all foods once removed from direct heat. Hemp Seed Oil can be heated and used as cholesterol free cooking oil but it will destroy most of the EFA’s. It is not really suitable for frying.

We recommend mixing with Barley Grass Powder, providing the benefits of the soluble proteins in Barley Grass Powder, along with the huge array of other nutrients.

Cold pressing dramatically increases shelf life, and providing the oil is stored correctly, it can be kept for up to 12 months.

Rancid Hemp Seed Oil is harmful. It is very important to store it correctly. Light, heat and air will damage your oil so keep it tightly capped in the refrigerator and consume within 10 weeks. Our oils are vacuum packed under nitrogen and while it is okay to let the oil reach room temperature it is always best kept cool.

Henry Ford created a car made in part from hemp fibre which ran on hemp oil.  But due to hemp prohibition, he was forced to abandon his work.  The car 'grown from the soil' had plastic panels made from a mixture of 70% cellulose fibres from hemp whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel at 2/3 the weight for better economy (Popular Mechanics, 1941) Prohibition prevented Mr. Ford from powering his fleet with "plant-power".
