Hemp Oil – Nature’s most nutritionally balanced oil
What is it?
Hemp is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. We use the hemp seeds to make our oil as they contain nearly 50% oil, and of this, 75% is essential fatty acids. The oil contains the perfect balance of Omega 3:6, and contains the highly sort after Omega 6 GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) and Omega 3 SDA (stearidonic acid). Importantly, linseed oil, and other common plant oils do not contain these EFAs. Hemp oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant which helps to protect the delicate Omega-3 within the oil. This makes the oil very stable so it has a much longer shelf life than linseed oil, and is also more nutritious.
What is it for?
Our Hemp Oil can be fed to improve skin, coat & feather condition, support joints, growth, immunity, fertility and brain development. It is a natural source of GLA so it will also benefit the body by inhibiting the production of leukotrienes. (leukotrienes are associated with inflammatory reactions, allergies & respiratory conditions) Hemp oil is rapidly growing in popularity because many owners report fantastic results and improvements in their animals health and well being.
Research has shown that feeding Hemp oil to chickens can increase the Omega 3 content of their eggs, making a healthier meal for us too!
How is it Made?
An exclusive organic farm in North Devon produces our Pure Devon Hemp Seed Oil. The best quality oil is extracted by gently cold pressing the seeds. It is not chemically treated or refined in any way, and as it is grown and pressed in the UK, it offers low food miles too! Imported hemp oil can be of variable quality. Buying UK sourced, from exclusive hemp producers, ensures that you are purchasing the best quality for your pets and animals.
Hemp is a very environmentally friendly crop. Most importantly, chemical fertilisers and pesticides are not necessary and the soil benefits from the plant.
In conclusion, if you are looking to feed a natural diet, which is chemical free and therefore produced in a way that is kind to the environment, hemp seed oil is the ideal choice.
