About natural product

Hemp oil is of vegetable origin, and for its production using the method of cold pressing. The raw material for the valuable product is mainly raw plant seeds, with the highest oil content, but the whole plant can be used.

The crude oil composition has a rich nutty flavor and a greenish tint, which changes to a colorless as a result of processing. Hemp oil is of two kinds:

  • unrefined - perishable, with a short shelf life due to the possibility of bitterness in the taste;
