Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp can be accurately described as an old crop with a new beginning. Traditionally hemp was used for its fiber but now is recognized for its nutritional benefits. Hemp food products are grabbing the spotlight in grocery and natural healthfood stores throughout North America and beyond.

Why hempseed oil? The answer lies within the essential fatty acid profile. A well balanced diet ratio of Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s not usually found in other plant based oils. Nutritionists recommend a daily intake ratio of Omega 6 and 3 to be approximately 5 to 1. Hempseed oil, with its 3 to 1 is the closest to this range in a naturally occurring oil.

Health Canada, a federal Canadian government agency, provides strict guidelines for growing and processing hemp seed.
