Your questions, answered
What is the recommended daily intake of hemp seed oil?
1 tablespoon (15ml) per day. This gives you your daily dosage of omega 3 as well as many other healthy nutrients.
Is your hemp gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free?

Our in-house food technologist ensures the standard for food safety and quality assurance is consistently met.
How is hemp extremely different to cannabis?
Unlike cannabis, hemp is not a manipulated crop. Whereas cannabis has high levels (5-30%) of the psychoactive compound THC, the THC in hemp cannot exceed 0.3%. THC is not present in hemp seeds, which are used to make hemp seed oil.
Our seed is stringently tested prior to planting and our hemp crop is tested at harvest time by laboratories for this key element, ensuring levels are less than 0.3% THC.
Can I cook with hemp oil?
Hemp oil is best used for low temperature cooking, due to its low flashpoint of 165°C. Oils have different flash points or smoke points (the point at which the oil undergoes a transformation from super nutritious to unhealthy). For example, rice bran oil has a flashpoint of 250°C, whereas the flash point for olive oil is 155°C.
As hemp oil has a low flash point, it will start to burn at a low temperature which can affect the flavour and nutrition. If you’re cooking a side of salmon for 20 minutes at 150°C, hemp oil is safe for cooking. If you want to sear a steak at a high temperature, choose another oil.
Hemp oil is perfect for a drizzle over vegetables or in salad dressings.
