Particularities

Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of industrial hemp, a plant that is closely related to hops. It is grown inEurope, Asia and the Americas. The light green oil is produced by gently pressing the seeds, which have an oilcontent of 26–35%. Hemp oil consists almost entirely of essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. The oilcake, a by-product of the pressing process, is ground into a fine flour with a high protein content afterwards.
