In recent years, Hemp has risen as a very eco-friendly and economical crop for a majority of industrial purposes. It has been a replacement of many materials such as leather, plastic and cotton for that matter. Hemp has showered its magic on many industries including apparel, medicine, and skin and haircare to name a few. 

Out of many products that have been derived from Hemp, one revolutionary product has been hemp seed oil. Let us dive deeper into its existence.

Hemp Seed Oil - where does it come from

Hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant, which belongs to the cannabis family. Now hemp shouldn’t be confused with mind altering drugs like marijuana, which also belongs to the cannabis family. Marijuana contains high levels of THC which is responsible for psychoactive effects. On the other hand, Hemp contains an insignificant amount of THC, hence it is safe and legal for industrial purposes. 

Hemp seed oil is extracted by cold pressing the seeds of the plant, making it an excellent multi-purpose oil.

Hemp Seed Oil - Composition

Hemp seeds have a variety of nutrients. Two tablespoons of hemp seed contain just 90 calories. It also contains a good amount of fibre. But the best thing is it contains all essential amino acids. The highlight composition is Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids which are really vital for your protein requirement. Now speaking of the oil extraction, Hemp oil seed contains 30 percent oil, 25-30 percent protein, 30-40 percent fibre and 7 percent moisture. This proves that the oil can be beneficial in a lot of nutritional and skin/hair care products!

Hemp Seed Oil - Benefits

May Improve Heart Health

Hemp seed oil may benefit cardiovascular health. Arginine, an amino acid present in hemp seed oil, is responsible for improved heart health. Thus, consuming hemp seed oil may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Healthier Skin

Hemp seed oil can be used on skin as an addition to your skincare routine. It has anti-acne properties. It is thereby useful as a coolant for irritated skin. Not only this, it also locks in the moisture of the skin, making it ideal for all skin types.

Reduces Inflammation

Hemp Seed Oil contains linolenic acid. This is one of the omega 6 acids present in hemp seed oil. Linolenic acid is said to  have anti-inflammatory properties. So if you intake hemp seed oil, you’re likely to be at a lower risk of inflamed digestion or heartburn.
