**Why do we love hemp seed oil?

Hemp is a fully sustainable crop. It grows quickly. It is pest resistant, so it needs no chemical pesticides or fertilizers. It helps sequester large volumes of CO2.

Hemp is versatile. It can be used for food, clothing, paper, construction material.

Hemp is balanced nutritionally. It has the correct ratio of omega 3 to 6 fatty acids for the human body. It is a great source of protein.
