Hemp oil is obtained by pressing hemp seeds, which are seeds from the Cannabis plant. Cold pressed, unrefined hemp oil is dark to clear light green in color, with a nutty flavour. The darker the color, the grassier the flavour.
Hemp oil has an excellent ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 oils. Its ratio is ideal for what your body needs and it is this quality that produces its health benefits, both as a nutritional supplement and in its topical forms.
