Traditional crop plant
The hemp plant (Cannabis sativa) with its distinctive, five-fingered leaves is one of the world's oldest crops. The active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has made hemp known as an intoxicant but also as a medicinal plant. Today, many varieties are cultivated with a low THC content, from which valuable foods are produced.
The dark green, hay-like scented and nutty-tasting hemp oil is cold pressed from the seeds of organic hemp. Hemp oil contains more than 70 g per 100 g unsaturated fatty acids, including the polyunsaturated fatty acids linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid. It also contains approximately 2-3 g per 100 g gamma-linolenic acid, a rare omega-6 fatty acid in edible oils. In addition, native hemp oil contains other valuable phytochemicals such as chlorophylls, carotenoids and phytosterols. The oil is also rich in vitamins, for example tocopherols (vitamin E).
Hemp oil can be enjoyed pure on a spoon or used for dressings, dips and marinades. Externally, hemp oil is used for sensitive and dry skin.
Enjoy hemp oil straight from the spoon. The green, nutty and tasty oil is also ideal for the preparation of dressings, dips and sauces and for steaming on low heat.
Do not use for frying, as this destroys the valuable essential fatty acids.
Hemp oil is traditionally used in skin care for extremely dry, flaky and sensitive skin. It is easy to apply and absorbs quickly into the skin.
