GENERAL INFORMATION: Hemp Seed Carrier Oil comes from the Cannabis sativa (Industrial Hemp) plant seed. Tests have shown that there are little to no cannabinoids present in the seeds of the hemp plant. Hemp Seed Oil is regulated in its production and does not contain either CBD or THC.

Hemp seed oil is the carrier oil with the highest percentage of essential fatty acids (EFA). It is comprised of between 75% and 80% of total EFAs. Likewise, hemp seed carrier oil is also high in omega 3’s. The component in carrier oils which make them emollient and lubricating, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), is also very high in hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is one of nature’s richest sources of PUFAs. PUFAs account for the lubricating and emollient properties of carrier oils, keeping the skin soft and supple while increasing the moisture retention of the skin. This combination of EFA and PUFAs makes hemp seed oil helpful for conditions such as dry, rough skin, minor skin abrasions, acne, eczema and psoriasis. Hemp seed oil is high in vitamin E which is a natural anti-oxidant. It helps to trap and remove excess free radicals that cause damage and lead to premature aging of the skin.
