Man has been using the hemp for its superb nutritional benefits for over 3000 years! In fact, the Ancient Chinese relied on both oil and seeds as a medicine. This is because it’s a rich source of fibre, vitamins C, E and A, minerals such as sulphur, potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Hemp oil boast an array of alcohols and plant sterols that fight inflammation. Inflammation is the main cause of a wide range of chronic diseases. Hemp oil contains the perfect balance, a 3:1 ratio of the two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6. Did you know that no other nut or vegetable oil contains this ratio? Yes, it’s true!
