Note: Australian and New Zealand legislation now allows the sale of Hemp foods to be used for human consumption. If you live in Australia or New Zealand, you are welcome to purchase and use hemp as a food product, in cosmetic formulations or to feed to your favourite four legged friend. Enjoy!

Packed in: All Made In Hemp oil is packaged in food grade plastic bottles with tamper evident lids with an induction seal below to protect from the ingress of oxygen. The HDPE plastic packaging is a better choice than glass as it it protects the oil from light which degrades hemp seed oil. It is also better for the environment as HDPE plastic is more easily recycled using less heat. It is safer than glass with no risk of glass splinters or shards and is more easily transportable.
 
Components of Hemp Seed Oil:
The human body uses fatty acids from food for building tissues and for specialised functions such as the production of prostaglandins, localised tissue hormones. One major group of fatty acids is called essential fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated, and include two major groups, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. They are called "essential" because the body cannot make them and thus, must obtain them from food sources. Hemp seed oil is the only edible seed oil to contain over 80% polyunsaturated EFA's and boasts not only the optimum ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6, but also Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) and Stearidonic Acid (SDA).
 
What is the 'optimum Omega ratio' all about?
Research data suggests that the optimum ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 for the ultimate human health ranges from 3:1 to 5:1. The World Health Organisation (Sweden/Japan) recognises this optimum ratio to be 3:1. Studies in western populations today show that a typical diet has a ratio range of 10:1 to 20:1. It is likely that excess refined foods, dairy and a lack of whole foods have contributed to this lack of balance, and in turn, our failing health. Through adjusting our diet to allow more natural intake of these EFA's, we can improve our cellular health and maximise long-term vitality.

 
What about GLA and SDA Essential Fatty Acids?
Incorporating GLA and SDA into our diets helps our bodies assimilate fatty acids (ie the omegas). The edibility of hemp seed oil is particularly beneficial as an alternative to other GLA rich sources (ie sunflower or evening primrose oil). Adding SDA to the diet seems to lower risks of heart attacks because omega-3 fatty acids reduce the clotting tendency of the blood and improve cholesterol profiles. These special fatty acids also have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, making GLA and SDA useful for people with arthritis and autoimmune disorders.

Health Benefits:
Essential fatty acids perform a rane of important roles in the human body, and we must obtain them from food sources to derive the health benefits as listed below:

HORMONAL BALANCE
Hemp is the only edible seed containing GLA and magnesium-rich chlorophyll, both of which are beneficial in helping with PMS conditions including breast tenderness, bloating, cramping and other discomforts.

CARDIOVASCULAR TONIC
Omega-3 oils have been shown in hundreds of studies to lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels - they are also effective in decreasing blood pressure, platelet stickiness and fibrinogen levels. Numerous studies have shown that the substitution of polyunsaturated fats for saturated fats can reduce the risk of sudden cardiac arrest and high blood cholesterol levels. Research has found that for every 1% increase in omega-3, there was a 5mm Hg decrease in systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressure.

ANTI-INFLAMMATION + ALLERGIES
Omega-3 helps produce PG3 (prostaglandin 3 series), the anti-inflammatory chemicals that work as local hormones in the human body. Numerous studies show that EFAs have positive results in the trea - ent of many chronic diseases including eczema, itchy skin, acne, psoriasis, lupus and ulcerative colitis.

ANTI - ARTHRITIS
Key fatty acids found in Hemp Seed Oil provide long-term support and maintenance of arthritic conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis.

METABOLISM + NERVE FUNCTION
The omega-3 fatty acids help nerve cells communicate with each other, which is an essential step in maintaining good mental health. EFAs have been shown to work with oxygen and enhance electron transport, key activities in energy output within the cell as well as enhance nerve cell insulation.

SKIN HEALTH
Hemp Seed Oil provides EFAs necessary for maintaining health and flexible skin cell membranes as well as exerting anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

IMMUNITY
EFAs enhance immune function, speed up the rate of immune reactions, help to re-establish population control over intestinal bacteria and improve cellular energy for removing waster materials.

PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE
Omega-3 fatty acids help support the cardiovascular system during exercise and also reduce the negative effect of intense exercise on the immune system.

NUTRITIONAL PROFILE
Hemp Seeds contain approximately 25% high quality gluten-free protein, 10% carbohydrate and 30% fat in the form of an excellent quality oil. Compared with most nuts and seeds, the 30% fat content is relatively low and Hemp Seed Oil also boasts zero cholesterol levels. The protein content of Hemp Seeds are comparable to that of soya beans and better than that found in nuts, other seeds, dairy, meat, fish or poultry. Hemp Seed Oil has a remarkable fatty acid profile, being high in the desirable omega-3s and also delivering GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) and SDA (stearidonic acid), both of which are absent from the fats we normally eat. Nutritionally oriented doctors believe all of these compounds to be beneficial to health. Hemp seed oil typically contains 57% linoleic (LNA) and 19% Alpha-linolenic (ALA) acids, in the three-to-one ratio that perfectly match our nutritional needs. These are the essential fatty acids (EFAs)-so called because the body cannot make them and must get them from external sources. The best sources are oils from freshly ground grains and whole seeds, but EFAs are fragile and quickly lost in processing.

Why Hemp is better than Flax?
Flax oil is pressed from the seeds of Linum usitatissimum, the source of linen fibre and an oil better known as linseed oil, the base for oil paints. Flaxseed oil is usually classified as a "drying oil" rather than a food oil because its chemical characteristics cause it to combine readily with oxygen and become thick and hard. This tendency to harden on exposure to air quickly turns linseed oil rancid and unfit to eat, but makes it useful as a vehicle for pigment on canvas.

OPTIMUM RATIO
Hemp Seed Oil has the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3. Flax seed oil has a ratio of 1:4 ratio respectively which does not promote the optimum health balance, especially if used long-term. Hemp oil contains more desirable EFAs than flax and can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of Omega 3.

FLAVOUR
Hemp Seed Oil has a delicious nutty flavour and is very versatile in cuisine. Most Flax Seed Oil is not delicious - though there is great variation in taste across brands, the best of them still leave much to be desired. Some consumers say it makes them gag, even when concealed in a salad dressing or baked potato. These people have to resort to taking flax oil capsules, which are large and often expensive.

LONGEVITY + FRESHNESS
Udo Erasmus, author of the classic book, Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill (1996) says that "the problem is freshness". Unless you get flax oil right from the processor and freeze it until you start using it, it will already have deteriorated by the time you buy it. Alternatively, Hemp Seed Oil keeps well both opened in the refrigerator and unopened in cool, dark storage.

GLA - Gamma-Linolenic acid
Unlike flax oil (which has no GLA content at all), Hemp Seed Oil also provides GLA. Many people take supplements of GLA in the form of evening primrose oil, black currant oil or borage oil capsules.GLA simulates growth of hair and nails, improves the health of the skin, and can reduce inflammation, and a quality oil that supplies both omega-3s and GLA, without the need to take more capsules ... has to be a good thing!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why hemp seed oil?
Hemp Seed Oil is made up of 81% poly-unsaturated essential fatty acids (EFA's). That makes Made In Hemp - Hemp Seed Oil one of the least saturated oils available. EFA's are needed by, but not produced by, the human body.

Why is the ratio of EFA's important?
Hemp Seed Oil contains the EFA's Omega 6 and Omega 3 in the ratio of 3:1. This means it can be used in the long term without causing a deficiency or imbalance in either of these important fatty acids.

What are GLA's?
Hemp Seed Oil also contains the beneficial Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is an important anti- inflammatory agent which reduces the symptoms of common skin disorders such as eczema, acne and psoriasis.

Should Hemp Seed Oil be heated?
No. Like flax seed oil, it is fragile. The essential fatty acids it contains are easily damaged if exposed to light, air or heat. Nutritionists recommend that hemp seed oil should never be cooked at high temperatures and is best consumed raw.

Is Made In Hemp - Hemp Seed Oil GE free?
Yes. Made In Hemp - Hemp Seed Oil is pure, cold pressed oil, extracted from GE free hemp seed grown in Canada. There are no other additives, oils or oil blends present in our Hemp Seed Oil.

What is cold pressing?
Made In Hemp - Hemp Seed Oil is extracted by 'cold pressing'. The 'cold pressing' of Hemp Seed Oil, which is also the process used for other nutritional oils such as flaxseed oil, means the oil is processed at low temperatures. The extraction process for Made In Hemp - Hemp seed Oil that ensures there is no exposure to light, temperatures remain below 40°C, and the oil is made in an O2 free environment. These three factors ensure prolonged freshness, without any loss of the oils nutritional value.

What are polyunsaturated Essential Fatty Acids?
There are four basic types of fat that the body takes from food: cholesterol, saturated fat, monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated essential fatty acids. The polyunsaturated essential fatty acids are the one's the body uses to build itself. These essential fatty acids are called 'essential' fatty acids because they are necessary for life. The body cannot make EFA's for itself nor can it store them, so we need a regular supply in our food, and the modern day diet of processed convenience foods often means we are lacking these valuable EFAs. Polyunsaturated Essential Fatty Acids include: Alpha Linolenic Acid (Omega 3), and Linoleic Acid (Omega 6).

Since this comes from the cannabis plant, will I get high?
No. The intoxicating property of cannabis sativa (THC - tetrahydrocannabinol) resides in a sticky resin produced in the flowering tops of female plants before the seeds mature. Strains of hemp grown for oilseed production have a low resin content to begin with, and by the time the seeds are ready for harvest, resin production has dropped even further. The final process of drying, cleaning, and pressing the seeds means no THC is found in the final product. Any person could safely pass a urine analysis test having consumed Hemp Seed Oil.

Is hemp oil actually legal?
Currently, restrictions on the use of Hemp Seed Oil are limiting its purchase within Australia to topical use only, either undiluted or in skin/body care products where it is also highly beneficial. It may also be used within Australia as an animal dietary supplement. Presently FSANZ are reviewing the inclusion of Industrial Hemp and its byproducts as a food source in line with other developed nations that recognise the many benefits these products can offer.

Why can't I take Omega 3 and Omega 6 separately?
It's all about striking a healthy balance. The optimum ratio of 6:3 appears to be critical in inhibiting inflammatory responses. Excessive intake of omega 6:omega 3 can saturate enzyme activity and prevent the production of anti-inflammatory substances.

How much Hemp Seed Oil should I take?
15ml (1 Tblsp) per 50kg of body weight per day and over a period of long-term consumption provides the optimum balance of fatty acid ratios. This contains the daily recommended requirement (600mg GLA) to help alleviate the symptoms of eczema, cyclic mastalgia and diabetic neuropathy for a normal adult. Higher levels can be used under the guidance of a health practitioner.

Are there any contradictions?
No, there are no known contradictions.

How do I use Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp Seed Oil is a golden green colour with a delicious, nutty taste - many say it tastes like pine nuts. Due to it's high EFA content, it's not suitable for cooking at high temperatures (undesirable trans-fatty acids that are formed at temperatures approaching 400degF). Quick sautéing is acceptable, as long as the oil doesn't smoke. The best use is in its natural form, drizzled on salads, served with breads, and added to pastas and smoothies.  Please see our recipes section for more detailed information.

How long should it last?
Always store in a dark, cool place. After opening (due to the delicate polyunsaturated EFAs), Hemp Seed Oil must be stored in the fridge and should be consumed within 4 weeks. Unopened bottles should last up to 9 months if stored properly.

I have a nut allergy - will your produce be OK for me to use?
Hemp Seed Oil is derived from the nut or heart of the hemp seed, but this is not a ground nut thus should not provoke the normal allergic reaction.
