Product Description: Hempseed Oil is pressed, virgin, and unrefined. Hemp (cannabis sativa L.) was already cultivated in China well over 6,000 years ago and widely spread in Europe since 8th century BC. Hemp cultivation in Europe and America was a domain of classical farming before the World Wars. The more than four meter high stalks produce long and strong fabrics. The seeds contain around 26-35% oil which is of brownish-yellow, green-yellow, or dark-yellow with a seedy mild and slightly hay-like odor and taste. The oil is purely mechanically pressed at low temperatures and in a final step mechanically filtered. There is no after treatment (deodorization, refining).

Applications For Product: The high content in unsaturated fatty acids (mono-unsaturated around 15% and poly-unsaturated 75%) makes Hempseed Oil one of the especially valuable light natural oils (salad, raw vegetables). The cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries value Hempseed Oil for fatty acids composition (g-linolenic acid) as well as the positive image. Hempseed Oil possesses drying properties and is thus used in the manufacture of printing and oil paint.
