Hemp Seed Oil With Food

Most often we find hemp seed oil used as cooking oil. It is cold-pressed and contains no psychotropic properties. It’s highly nutritious oil. Hemp seed oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Hemp is also low in saturated fats compared to other culinary oils. It ranges in 5-7% of saturated fat content. Hemp seed oil is a great alternative for vegans and vegetarians too. The ratio of omega fatty acids that hemp seed oil has is said to match what the human body needs. If you use one tablespoon daily you will reach the requirements for essential fatty acids.

Hemp seed oil has a nutty, earthy flavor.  It’s great to use on salads or as a condiment on other dishes. It is not easy to cook with since it will burn at a very low temperature so it’s best to eat it with food rather than use it for sauté.

Hemp seed oil, since it is pressed solely from the seed of the Cannabis sativa plant, does not contain all the beneficial cannabinoids like the purer Cannabinoid oil, also called Hemp Oil or Pure Hemp Oil. However, it still offers a highly nutritious boost to every meal! You can find Hemp Seed Oil at most supermarkets.

Pure Hemp Oil for Skin

Pure hemp oil also contains essential fatty acids that help to increase our body’s absorption of vitamins and minerals. Essential fatty acids can nourish our skin, hair, and nails along with a myriad of other helpful things. Agricultural hemp is an incredible plant that also contains over 100 different phytonutrients and phytocannabinoids. And the best way to benefit from this amazing bounty of nature is to utilize as much of the plant as possible in a finished product. Functional Remedies, using the entire Cannabis sativa plant, produces what is called full-spectrum hemp oil.  Only full-spectrum hemp oil can deliver the "entourage effect" which refers to the combined effect of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and other beneficial compounds in the hemp plant working together in synergy in your body. As a result, Functional Remedies full-spectrum hemp oils foster enhanced therapeutic benefits that other oils lack.

Massage therapists and other body workers are using pure hemp oil to help with supporting balance and well-being in muscle, joint, tendon, lymph, and tension-related issues. Also, people with acne and other skin imbalance are finding the active nutrients found in pure hemp oil can bring needed and lasting relief.

Functional Remedies also offers a nourishing hemp salve in a twist tube that you can conveniently carry and apply, as needed, even when you are away from home.

Pure Hemp Oil and Overall Well-Being

According to, well-being is defined as: “A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity.” Hemp oil is a great way of promoting overall well being. Kai Metcalf, Lab Manager at Functional Remedies tells us, “A huge benefit of hemp oil is the general sense of well-being and balance in life it can bring.”
