Product Description and Usage: 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.
