Organic Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil is an important ingredient in anti-inflammatory skin care formulations.  For this reason it is beneficial, as it helps to heal skin lesions, balance dry skin and fight skin inflammations.It is a non-greasy, emollient and moisturizing compound with excellent moisture balancing properties.

Hemp seed oil contains a high amount of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids - 57% linoleic (LA) and 19% linolenic (LNA) acids.  Hemps seed oil also contains antioxidants in the form of vitamin E and carotene. Adding to that, phytosterols, phospholipids, as well as a number of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium and phosphorus are also found in the oil.

Hemp seed oil is reputed to have a higher percentage of polyunsaturated fats than any other vegetable oil. Hemp seed oil is very high in both Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are both potent antioxidants and prostaglandin-mediating anti-inflammatories. Hemp seed oil has the lowest amount of saturated fatty acids and the highest amount of the polyunsaturated essential fatty acids of all oils. Flax seed oil comes in second. 

EFA’s are involved in producing life energy from food and the movement of that energy throughout the body. EFAs govern growth, vitality and state of mind.  Linoleic acid and linolenic acid are precursors to the prostaglandins, a short-lived hormone-like family of substances that regulate many functions in all tissues.

Although Cannabis sativa is mistakenly linked to hashish, hemp seed oil, as it is used in cosmetic products, does not cause hallucinations and is not banned by any government.
