What People Are Saying
A great source of essential amino acids
You can use Nutiva Organic Hemp Seed Oil in smoothies, salads, vegetables and pasta dishes. To conserve the essential fatty acids, we suggest you use it raw or gently heated. It's not suitable for frying. Hemp is loaded with all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that are not manufactured in the body, and must come from food. Amino acids are essential for many metabolic processes, including building muscle tissue.
Ingredients: Raw, organic, unrefined hempseed oil
Storage: keep refrigerated or in the freezer and use within 8-12 weeks of opening
What is the difference between CBD oil and Hemp Seed oil?
CBD and hemp seed oil are made from different parts of the plant. Nutiva’s Organic Hemp Seed Oil is cold expeller pressed from whole, raw hemp seed. CBD oil is a floral hemp extract that's made from the leaves and flowers. Hemp Seed oil and hemp foods are not a source of CBD.
