Hemp is the common term for high growing varieties of the plant Cannabis sativa. It has been cultivated in many countries for about 12,000 years. Historically it has been used for making a wide range of products: foods, oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper and fuel have all been made from this amazingly versatile planet over the years.
Hemp Seed Oil is produced by pressing the seeds of the Hemp plant. Much of it is refined, rendering it colourless, with little flavour and lacking natural nutritional content. Unrefined Hemp Seed Oil on the other hand is one of nature's little marvels. With all of its inherent goodness intact, it can provide a much needed dose of essential fatty acids, such as omega-3 and omega-6, and in the correct ratio required by the body for maximum benefit.
Bob's Best Hemp Seed Oil is derived from organically grown Hemp Seeds and cold-pressed to ensure its nutritional content is not compromised by other, more destructive extraction methods.
Directions for use:
Simply add to food to improve both the flavour and nutritional content of your meal. Do not heat as this will greatly reduce its beneficial effects and destroy many of the EFA's. Add to food once removed from direct heat to improve flavour and nutritional content.
Keep your Hemp Seed Oil refrigerated and tightly sealed. Air, heat and light will damage it so always make sure it is tightly capped when not in use. Rancid hemp oil is harmful and should not be consumed. Cold pressing increases the shelf life and if stored correctly can stay fresh for up to 12 months. It can also be frozen to further extend its life.
