How hemp seed oil could benefit your health

Rich in healthy oils and fatty acids, hemp seed oil packs a powerful vitamin and mineral punch. Here’s what you need to know.

If you’re into the latest wellness trends (and who isn’t), you’ve probably heard the buzz around hemp seed oil.

Extracted from the small but powerful seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, hemp oil is different from CBD oil, which is a chemical compound extracted from the leaves, flowers and stalk of the same plant.

You won’t get high using hemp seed oil, as it contains none of the psychoactive chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (TCH).

What the seeds do have is a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids and bioactive compounds for everyday health and vitality.

How hemp seed oil is good for skin health

Hemp seed oil contains more than 80 per cent polyunsaturated fatty acids (that is the good fats) and is a super rich source of the two essential fatty acids, linolenic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, more commonly known as omega-6 and omega-3.

Without getting too science-y, the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio in hemp seed oil is normally between 2:1 and 3:1, which is considered to be optimal for human health.

It’s thought that the abundance of fatty acids can help nourish the skin and may protect it from causes of ageing.

The extra-virgin, cold-pressed extraction method used by GO Healthy (similar to that used for olive oil) keeps the most nutritional value of the seed intact.

Being plant-derived, they’re also a great solution for those who can’t take fish oil.

With hemp laws changing in Australia allowing hemp to be sold as a food, more research into these super seeds is still underway.

We can’t wait to see what the future holds.
