Virgin Hemp Seed Oil, having the botanical name Cannabis sativa, is cold-pressed extracted and filtered, resulting in a characteristic green oil with an earthy aroma and flavor profile. Hemp seed oil has long been used in a wide variety of applications including nutritional, food and beverage manufacturing, cosmetic formulations, and industrial purposes. Due to the naturally occurring high content of Linoleic acid C18:2, a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, hemp seed oil is often sought after for supplements. The omega-6 to omega-3 percentage in hemp seed oil is typically 3:1 which is a beneficial ratio for the human diet.
Jedwards also supplies Hemp Seed Oil – Virgin - Golden, item # S1257, which is unrefined, but carries a natural golden hue, much lighter in color than our traditional Virgin Hemp Seed oil because it is pressed from the hulled seeds of the cannabis sativa plant.
I use this oil religiously in my soaps. The benefits of the oil are amazing. Hemp oil is a GREAT conditioner and helps to clear skin up and keep it smooth. The oil is a dark color but pretty much odorless. This oil is used in many of our natural bars since the oil does make them little green when mixed with lighter oils. GREAT OIL will ALWAYS purchase more of this.
