An oil with a deep green color and a characteristic taste. In folk medicine, hemp seed has a crucial role. Nowadays, the kinds with narcotic effects are widely known. Hemps seeds used for sowing, however, do not contain any such components (like THC). It consists of elements that are physiologically much more important, which makes it a really precious oil.
It contains linoleic acid (an Omega-6 fatty acid), which strengthens the immune system; and linolenic acid (an Omega-3 fatty acid), which helps maintain a healthy heart and a healthy vascular system. It also has positive effects on eyesight.
One of the most characteristic and most delicious oils, can be used for flavouring your meals afterwards as well. Ideal for salads and for creamy soups but goes also well with raw or fried vegetables, tomatoes, meals with basil and salt cheeses (e.g. feta cheese). It can be combined well with corn oil.
