Cold-pressed bio hemp oil is unique among vegetable oils due to its composition. In addition to essential fatty acids (EFAs), it contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C and E (in the form of tocopherols), phytin (used in medicine to treat anaemia), another antioxidant chlorophyll and lecithin. Standard Western diet generally contains too much fat, especially saturated fatty acids and omega-6 acids, which increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Replacing foods with a high content of saturated fatty acids (most commonly meat and dairy products) with foods with a higher content of EFAs (such as cold-pressed vegetable oils) can help prevent and treat these diseases. Hemp oil is considered an optimum solution in this respect.

Oil Comparison
Hemp oil Hemp oil is the healthiest oil. It has a natural content of Omega 3 (including Omega 3 SDA – a more effective form of Omega 3). It has one of the lowest amounts of saturated fats and the highest content of polyunsaturated fats (essential fatty acids) among all table oils. It also contains Omega 6 GLA (usually found in evening primrose oil). It also contains the ideal “golden” ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3.
Olive oil Olive oil contains by 40% more saturated fats than cannabis oil. Olive oil contains almost no Omega 3. In fact, hemp oil has 25 times more Omega 3 than olive oil.
Rapeseed oil Rapeseed oil contains by 50% less Omega 3 than hemp oil. It is often used for frying.
Sunflower oil Sunflower oil does not contain Omega 3. As it contains a high amount of Omega 6, it increases the lack of Omega 3 in a regular diet.
Pumpkin oil Pumpkin oil contains very little Omega 3. It is also much more expensive and not so affordable.
Linseed oil Although linseed oil has a higher Omega 3 level than cannabis oil, it does not have the correct ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3. After some time, linseed oil could cause Omega 6 deficiency. In addition, Omega 3 in linseed oil is exclusively in the form of ALA (fatty acids with a short chain). Linseed does not contain any SDA – a more effective form of Omega 3 found in cannabis oil. It is not suitable for normal cooking and should only be stored in a refrigerator.
