Hemp Depot Pure Hemp Seed Oil is obtained by cold pressing the seeds found in the fruit of the Cannabis sativa plant. The annual Hemp plant with its erect stems can grow up to 10 feet and is very slightly branched with greyish-green hairs. The numerous smooth leaves (5 to 7 leaves) are housed on thin long petioles with margins that are sharply serrated. These leaves are dark green on the upper surface, but lighter and downy on the under surface. The Hemp plant is complemented
with small owers with pale yellowish segments. The small, smooth, light brownish-grey in color hemp fruit is completely filled with seeds, which are processed to provide all the hemp seed oil benefits that everyone is crazy for!
Believed to be native to Persia, Northern India, Southern Siberia, and China, hemp seed oil use is widely revered. Nepali, Persian, Indian, and Arabian natives have all used hemp to their benefit for many years before its commercialization in the West. Today, hemp oil is largely cultivated in Central and Southern Russia, England, and Italy. The benefits of hemp seed oil are very valuable to personal care product manufacturers.
From a very basic level, it is important to be aware of whether your oils are refined or unrefined. Unrefined means it was minimally processed, while refined would indicate further refinement or processing of the oil. Unrefined oils are either cold-pressed or expeller-pressed, which means they are minimally processed using mechanical extraction (pressure) and low-temperature controlled conditions to extract the oil from the seed.
