Australian Grown cold pressed Hemp Seed Oil. Grown in Tasmanian, tested free from chemicals and processed in organic facilities in Victoria. Not Certified organic Hemp seed oil, but tested for purity. At present most, if not all, Australian Certified Organic Hemp Seed Oil is made from imported Hemp seeds, whether they are ‘Made in Australia’ or pressed overseas. If the Hemp seed oil does not state the country where it is grown it may be originally grown in China since China is the biggest grower of Hemp in the world.
Hemp Seed Oil has a great balance of Essential Fatty Acids that our bodies require. Approximately 20% omega 3, 60% omega 6, 10% omega 9 and about 3% G.L.A. Gamma Linolenic Acid (only found in 5 other seeds). Great for skin, hair and our immune system.
We take great pride in our product and can guarantee that it is genuine 100% Australian grown and processed. We have always been very proactive in ensuring that we can provide a food-grade product, even though hemp is not currently allowed as a food in Australia.
Every batch of oil we produce is profiled by an independent facility for EFA’s (essential fatty acids), FFA (free-fatty acids). We also perform what is known as the supermarket chemical testing, to ensure that there are no chemicals present in our Hemp seed oil and Hemp protein powder. Whilst we cannot say that our products carry an “organic certification” these test results show the same results as “certified organic” products. All these quality assurance methods and the fact that we have a full audit trail, right back to the farmer and field that the seed was grown on, means we serious about the quality of our product. Other producers will not be able to provide you with this quality audit trail, as their seed and/or oil is imported even though they may carry an Australian certified labelling. Please also remember, Australian Certified Organic” does not mean food-grade standards.
It is not legal for human consumption in Australia at present, but it is in the UK, USA, Canada and Europe.
Hemp seed oil is sometimes called Hemp Oil. It should not to be confused with Cannabis oil which is thought to be useful for cancers and epilepsy. Cannabis oil is made from the leaves of the plant and contains cannabinoids which are not found in the seed.
As Hemp seed oil will go off if exposed to heat, light and air for too long it is best stored in the refrigerator.
Packages Available: Our Hemp seed oil is available in 100 ml, 250 ml, 500ml & 1 Litre dark green glass bottles.
