Hemp seed oil is one of the most balanced natural sources of omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids, which are vital for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) play an important role in metabolism, cell growth, and general brain functions. Without an adequate intake of omega-3 & 6 EFAs which we cannot produce ourselves, the human body is unable to function properly. EFAs may also help alleviate the symptoms of degenerative conditions, inflammation, and high blood pressure.
Contrary to what the name suggests hemp seed oil does not contain elevated levels of tetrahydrocannabiole (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana. THC is mainly found in the flowering tops of female plants before the seeds mature. Hemp seeds are thoroughly cleaned and washed before pressing, thereby removing any traces of THC on the seeds that may have been left behind. You will not get ‘high’ from ingesting hemp seed oil.
