Hemp Seed Oil has been named nature’s most perfectly balanced oil on this planet.
Lariese Hemp Seed oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant, and contains the perfect ratio of Omega Fatty Acids as recommended by the World Health Organization — Omega 6 and Omega 3 in a ratio of 3:1. Just 15mls contains 94% of your daily requirement of Omegas 3, 6 and 9 and boasts an EFA content of 80%. These fatty acids are fundamental to maintaining good health and effective functioning of the immune system.
Cold-pressed from a proprietary variety of THC-free and GMO-free hemp seeds, the high Omega content of our Raw Hemp Seed oil is attributed to the environment in which the plants grow. Producing higher levels of Omega oils ensures their survival in the cold climate, in much the same way as Omega oils are present in cold-water fish.
Hemp Seed Oil is the only edible seed oil containing anti-inflammatory Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which can also help to reduce PMS symptoms such as breast tenderness, bloating, cramping and other discomfort. The Stearidonic Acid (SDA) present in Hemp Seed Oil helps to lower cholesterol, and the high levels of alpha-linolenic acid present can assist in lowering the risk of heart disease, heart attacks, hardening of the arteries and high blood pressure. Raw Hemp Seed oil is also a good source of chlorophyll and contains a number of minerals, including calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Other beneficial health properties can include reducing problems associated with the liver, kidney, bowel, gallbladder, arthritis, immunity, auto-immune disorder, hormonal balance, reproduction, menopause, allergies, metabolism, nerve and brain function, anxiety, attention span, muscle recovery, physical performance, lactic acid retention in joints, eczema and skin health. Lariese Hemp Seed oil contains more desirable EFAs than flax and can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of Omega 3. Flax Seed oil has a ratio of 1:4 (Omega 6: Omega 3), which does not promote optimum health, especially if used long-term.
“According to our studies, in order for Omega 6 and Omega 3 to have maximum effect, they need to be paired and present in the same oil in the correct, balanced proportion. This naturally occurs in our premium produced Canadian Hemp Seed Oil, the seed of which is a result of the proprietary seed species we use.”
It should be noted that diets high in red meat can be too high in Omega 6, which could actually be a contributing factor to the presence of inflammation.
Hemp seed oil and Hemp products are free from heavy-metal contaminants such as Mercury, that can be found in fish and fish oil. Nor do they have the high concentration of Vitamin A that is found in fish oil. Vitamin A is stored in body fat and a build-up can cause toxicity, especially in expectant mothers. Dietary beta carotene from red, orange and yellow fruits and vegetables is the safe way to obtain Vitamin A, as it is stored in the liver and only converted to Vitamin A when required.
Published research by Health Canada states that hemp is recommended for expectant and lactating mothers to assist the growing baby’s brain and bone development. Hemp is the ideal source of omega essential fatty acids for pregnant mothers.
The dark colour of Lariese Hemp Seed Oil attests to the cold-pressing process and the absence of Hexane or chemical solvents.
Lariese Hemp Seed oil is bottled in amber glass bottles, the only way to store Hemp Seed oil.
The delicate nutty flavour of our Hemp Seed oil lends itself to variety of uses as a finishing oil, such as an ingredient in pesto, salad dressings and sauces. Try marinating herbs such as garlic, chilli, basil, chives or oregano in Hemp Seed oil for five days or so for a delicious oil to drizzle over your favourite salad. It can also be added to smoothies and milk shakes. Cooking the oil may result in a loss of nutrients and it is not suitable for frying as it has a low smoking point; however, it can be added to hot food.
