The term “superfoods” is being tossed around a lot recently. Actually, this term originates from a marketing standpoint as it was coined to influence food trends and sell products. Experts usually stir away from using it as they claim that many foods can be described as “super”. There is actually no single type that holds the answer to good health. Nevertheless, superfoods are here to stay and are used to describe the food which has exceptional nutrient density and numerous health benefits.

One of such superfoods is hemp seed oil!

Hemp seed oil should not be confused with CBD oil. Both of them are produced from the same plant. However, hemp seed oil is extracted from hemp seeds and does not contain any CBD or THC, meaning that it does not come with any psychoactive effects. On the other hand, CBD oil is produced from the buds of the plant and is rich in cannabinoids. It also contains low amounts of THC (0.3%) and comes with numerous health benefits of its own.

However, let’s stick to the benefits of hemp seed oil for now.

What Is Hemp Seed Oil Good for?

There are so many positive uses of hemp seed oil! As mentioned, hemp seed oil is used for culinary purposes. Lots of people use it instead of regular sunflower or olive oil. It is rich in beneficial fatty acids and has a perfect ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 acids. Pregnant women can find this very useful as it is good for both the mother and the baby.

Hemp seed oil is highly resistant to heat. However, when cooking with this type of oil you should not overheat it as it might burn away all the beneficial fatty acids that come with it. A temperature of 475°F (245°C) is quite enough.

Additionally, this oil is a great source of protein. There are many plant-based, hemp-derived protein powdered products currently being offered on the market. The benefit of these products is that they are a better alternative to whey proteins. About 2 to 3 tablespoons of hemp seed come with 11g of protein and essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.

Furthermore, hemp seed oil has been known to be able to improve cognitive abilities. However, latest ADHD statistics show that hemp-derived CBD oil has a much better effect on people with these kinds of problems.

Finally, hemp seed oil is good for your skin. Currently, many companies offer skincare products that contain hemp seed oil. It can help with acne, moisturize your skin, and even make it look brighter. Most people use it because of its anti-aging qualities as these types of creams have linoleic and oleic acids that help reduce wrinkles.

To Conclude

As you are able to see, hemp seed oil has lots of advantages and rightfully deserves to be called a superfood! The given reasons are enough to add a bottle of hemp seed oil next to your olive oil within your cabinet. However, make sure that you get the one which is labeled as “hemp seed oil.” Otherwise, “hemp oil” could refer to CBD oil, which is not what you bargained for here.
