Hemp Seed Oil
Definition - What does Hemp Seed Oil mean?
Hemp seed oil is obtained when the seeds of the cannabis plant are pressed. In some rare cases, hemp oil is also drawn directly from the plant. When cold pressed and unrefined, the hemp seed oil appears greenish in color and boasts a nutty flavor if ingested. However, when the oil is refined it is clear and has no odor or taste.
Refined hemp seed oil is widely available in body lotions, paints, shampoos, cleaning products, and even baby care products. Industrial hemp seed oil is even used in certain types of fuel, paints, inks, lubricants, and plastics.
Hydrolife explains Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil does not contain any significant levels of THC, so it does not have any psychoactive characteristics. However, many people take hemp seed oil to treat a variety of physical disorders. It is also used for skin conditions. The oil is exceptionally high in nutritional value and contains abundant levels of Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids. It also boasts high levels of linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
The oil’s easy digestive ability and its pleasant flavor makes it an acceptable daily supplement for many people. Unlike many cannabis products, which are illegal at a federal level in the United States, hemp seed oil is not considered illegal and is widely sold in many health food stores and pharmacies.
