Hemp oil - the superfood

Hemp oil is a particularly high-quality oil with a fine, nutty flavor. It proves its status as a superfood through the optimal ratio of the vital omega 3 – omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acid structures.

Hemp oil has received a lot of attention in recent years, and for good reason. This vegetable oil is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant and has a variety of health benefits. Unlike CBD oil, which is made from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant, hemp oil does not contain any psychoactive substances. In this article, we shed light on the various health benefits of hemp oil and answer frequently asked questions on the subject.

Use of hemp oil

Hemp seed or hemp nut oil can be used like any other cold-pressed oil. Due to its fine, nutty flavor, however, it goes particularly well with cold dishes and is recommended for refining salads and sauces. Cooked dishes are also given the finishing touch with hemp oil.

Recommended intake for humans:
1-2 tablespoons of sustainably produced Kröpfel hemp oil daily

Hemp oil is not suitable for frying, as heating above approx. 165 degrees causes damage to the essential omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.

What is hemp oil used for?

The industrial hemp plants that are approved in the EU do not contain any psychoactive tetrahydracannabiol, or THC for short.

An excess of linoleic acid therefore promotes inflammatory processes on the one hand through the excessive formation of pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid and on the other hand through the prevented formation of anti-inflammatory fatty acids.

The optimum fatty acid ratio for humans should be around 3:1. An oil would therefore be perfect if it contained only 3 times as many omega-6 fatty acids as omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp oil is this perfect oil.

Omega 3 + Omega 6 + Omega 9

Hemp oil has the optimal ratio between omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids – and can therefore counteract inflammatory processes in the body.
But hemp oil not only provides important fatty acids. It also contains a high proportion of vitamins, proteins and amino acids. The vegetable oil contains all eight essential amino acids that the body needs to absorb with food.
The globulin protein edestin is also present in the oil. Hemp proteins can be utilized by humans to build up immunoglobulins, without which the immune system cannot function.

Hemp oil is also valued for its anti-inflammatory gamma-linolenic acid and is used as medicinal skin care for neurodermatitis or psoriasis, for example.

This greenish-golden oil strengthens the immune system, optimizes brain and nerve functions and regenerates or repairs the body’s own cells.

What is hemp oil?

Hemp oil, also known as hemp seed oil, is an edible oil obtained from the seeds of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). Unlike some other oils made from the hemp plant, hemp seed oil contains neither tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) nor cannabidiol (CBD). THC and CBD are the most well-known cannabinoids found in some varieties of the cannabis plant and are known for their psychoactive or medicinal properties.

Hemp seed oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, using only those seeds that do not contain cannabinoids such as THC or CBD. The oil has a nutty taste and a greenish color.

The composition of hemp oil is nutritionally remarkable as it has a good balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential for the human body. These fatty acids are contained in hemp oil in an optimal ratio that is beneficial for human nutrition. It is also a good source of vitamin E and antioxidants.

Hemp seed oil can be used as an edible oil, for cooking, frying or in salad dressings and marinades. It can also be found in skin care products as it moisturizes the skin and improves its elasticity.

It is important to note that hemp seed oil should not be confused with CBD oil or hemp oil used for therapeutic purposes, as these products come from different parts of the plant and have different properties and uses.
