Hemp Oil & Seeds
1. Here's everything you need to know about our natural cold-pressed hemp oil.
I. Hemp oil made out of Cannabis sativa is no drug.
For thousands of years these fibrous plants have been used for making very durable and strong materials (sails, canvas, paper). Because hemp plants are also extremely oily, they are used for the production of oil, which is widely used for health and cosmetic purposes (soothing skin lesions, soothing joints inflammation in case of arthritis, nourishing and smoothing skin tone).
The real treasure of hemp oil are essential fatty acids (EFAs) that have a perfect ratio of 3:1. It is an ideal proportion of omega -6 to omega -3 acid which assures the proper functioning of lipid metabolism in the body.
The high content of essential fatty acids in hemp oil means that it does not tolerate contact with air and light. In a word, it should not be heated and should only be stored in dark glass bottles, otherwise it loses its valuable nutritional properties. After opening, the bottle should be stored in a cool place, from 3 to up 6 months. When buying hemp oil, pay special attention to the hemp oil's origin and any certificates of organic cultivation, and of course whether it is refined or not. The refined one is very bland, transparent, and has little nutrients in comparison to the refined one. Our fully nutritional INDIA COSMETICS hemp oil is a cold pressed, unrefined one, darkgreen in colour, and has a distinctive, slightly nutty flavour.
To fully appreciate its beneficial ingredients, hemp oil is best served cold, so add it to salads or dressings. It can be poured onto toasted bread (preferably wholemeal bread), raw, baked or cooked vegetables, or pasta.
Hemp oil contains a lot of vitamins (A, B, C, and E) and minerals (calcium, magnesium, zinc), anti-oxidants, amino acids, and phytosterols.
Hemp oil supports heart and reduces blood pressure and cholesterol level, improves circulatory system, and therefore strengthens blood vessels.
Hemp oil is also a source of vitamin K, which is necessary for the protein and enzyme synthesis, is responsible for blood coagulability, has a wide range of vital properties, some of which are: anti-bleeding, analgesic, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory. The vitamin K also participates in the formation of bone tissue, is an excellent antioxidant, supports the immune system, reduces joints inflammation, and eliminates the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome in women.
II. Hemp oil for beauty.
When applied directly to the skin, the hemp oil protects and soothes dry and irritated skin (in cases of eczema, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis). Therefore it is recommended for allergy sufferers as it provides relief during itching onsets. The hemp oil is used as an excellent moisturizer, and at the same time is used as means of reducing blemishes and smoothing skin colour. It is so delicate that it can be used even for small children and infants.
III. Hemp oil cures cancer.

IV. Hemp oil: general properties.
The biggest advantage of hemp oil is its antitumour prevention and supporting the body's natural immunity, removing toxins from the body, and controlling cholesterol level. The substantial proportion of vitamin K accelerates wounds healing, prevents osteoporosis, and inhibits the development of cancer. The hemp oil contains chlorophyll, which is found naturally occurring in seeds and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Hemp oil is indispensable for elderly people, people at risk of and recovering from heart attack, people having problems with the nervous and the skeletal system, skin, and hair condition. The cannabis oil is especially recommended for people weakened by diseases and suffering from anemia or vitamin deficiency.
When applied externally the cannabis oil soothes and regenerates the skin, has antibacterial properties, regulates the production of sebum (perfect for the fight against acne), reduces itching (helpful in skins diseases), hinders premature aging of the skin and increases its resistance to external factors, and regenerates damaged hair.
The composition of hemp oil is chemically very similar to natural fat which is produced by the human body in order to protect the skin. Therefore, the hemp oil is a highly-valued dietary supplement and is more and more often used by the cosmetic industries.
Psychoactive substances are found only in the inflorescence, leaves and stems of cannabis which is why oil pressed from the seeds is free from these substances. The oil of a green colour and clarity is sold in a dark glass bottle, has a slightly nutty flavour with a spicy aftertaste. Due to the high content of omega acids it requires refrigeration.
Best served cold. For therapeutic use to be consumed one tablespoon a day.

Most of the skin diseases is caused by fatty acids deficiency.
Hemp protein is absorbed easier than soy protein. The protein extracted from hemp is of the highest quality and unlike the soy protein, it does not contain tryspin inhibitors or block the absorption of oligosaccharides. Vitamins and minerals contained in the seeds provide the body with a stable cell metabolism. Carbohydrates are the fuel for efficient digestion. Beneficial properties of gamma-linolenic acid are widely known in the prevention of atherosclerosis, strokes, and heart attacks because the acid regulates the level of lipids in the blood.
