Hempseed oil is known as a rich and balanced source of omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). Anecdotal evidence has indicated that dietary hempseed oil may be a useful treatment for remediating symptoms of atopic dermatitis (eczema), due to hempseed oils lipid profile being so similar to the lipid profile of human skin.
Hemp seed oil is a nourishing and raw superfood made by cold pressing the heart or, soft inner portion of the seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant.
Similar in the way that olives are cold pressed to make olive oil, this cold process uses no heat in the extraction process, resulting in a pure, extra virgin oil.
Hemp seed oil is not the same as cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The production of CBD oil uses the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the cannabis plant. Hemp seed oil is produced from just the seed, and in the case of Cocavo Hemp Seed Oil, from the heart of the seed. This results in an oil that is more golden in colour as opposed to oils that are made from pressing the whole seed giving it a greener colour, but bitter taste due to the chloroform found in the seed outer shell.
Most people tend to use hemp seed oil for drizzling on salads, but Cocavo’s Hemp Seed Oil is extremely versatile, so you can:
- Enjoy it raw, straight off a spoon where the healthy fats will help to boost heart and brain health, reduce inflammation, and improve chronic skin conditions.
- Used topically on the skin as a skincare product, hemp seed oil will nourish and relieve problem skin conditions.
- Great as a natural massage oil, hemp seed oil is non-comedogenic so will not clog skin pores.
- A little known, but trusted use for hemp seed oil is to restore and finish natural timber, chopping boards and wooden furniture. It is also great for conditioning leather.
Here at Cocavo, we reckon the best way to use hemp seed oil is as a nutritious and delicious food product or supplement. As a culinary ingredient, hemp seed oil can be used in dressings, mayonnaise & sauces. It is also fantastic to use for making pesto, replacing the traditional olive oil (which we also LOVE here at Cocavo) or add to smoothies and soups.
Many of our customers enjoy the unique nutty flavour of our Hemp Seed Oil by consuming 1 tablespoon a day on its own. Many swear by the pain-relieving effects on painful joints, and some even add a little to their pet’s food on a daily basis.
