4. Can one cook with Hemp seed oil?
Hemp Seed Oil can be used in baking and light cooking. However, hemp oil has a low flash point, which means it will start to smoke at fairly low temperatures. It’s also delicate, and if you cook at too high of a temperature such as frying chicken, it may cause the oil to hydrogenate.
Hence, it is best used in its raw form which helps keep its properties intact. However, you can use Hemp Seed Oil in any way that you deem fit.
5. What are the benefits of hemp oil on hair?
Hemp seed oil is said to have many health benefits, among them that it protects hair from damage.
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are considered to be good for hair when taken as an oral supplement. The hemp seed oil has plenty of both. These properties make the oil fit to stimulate hair growth, strengthen hair and make it smoother.
6. Why choose hemp oil over fish oil as a source of Omega?
Hemp oil is more viable since it has the perfect balance of Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid and Omega-6 linoleic acid and is more than 90% unsaturated. No single food has them all, but the hemp seed has all eight amino acids. Hemp seed oil is plant-based, cold-pressed, packaged, and stored appropriately as it does not oxidise or spoil as easily.
Moreover, consuming high levels of oily fish increases the chance of poisoning from pollutants in the ocean, omega-3 supplements affect blood clotting and interfere with drugs that target blood-clotting conditions.
It is also perishable & can spoil very easily due to its unstable nature of highly unsaturated DHA and EPA. Therefore it’s safe to say that hemp seed oil is a better and more sustainable option for our health, but also a more sustainable option for the environment.
