Hemp seed oil also provides a perfect balance of these essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.

Hemp seeds and hemp seed oil have been used in the Middle East and Europe for thousands of years. The oil has a wide variety of uses including being made into skin and body care products. As a great source of essential fatty acids, hemp seed oil could provide benefits such as improving skin appearance and boosting brain function.
