Add a small amount to a smoothie or drizzle it on top of hummus, a plate of pasta, roasted vegetables, or a bowl of soup. Hemp seed oil tastes a bit like walnuts or sunflower seeds, making it ideal for use in salad dressings or as a bread dip. However, because of the strong flavor, hemp seed oil is not suitable for anything sweet or delicate that might get overpowered.
You might want to mix it with a milder oil in a sweet salad dressing such as a raspberry vinaigrette. Hemp seed oil is not heat stable, so it's best used in uncooked applications. Well-stocked grocery stores in the United States, including some of the big-box discount chains, should carry at least one brand of cold-pressed hemp seed oil; you may find it on the shelf with the other cooking oils or with the refrigerated health food products. Natural food stores also stock it and you can order it online. Refined hemp seed oil doesn't make a good choice for the kitchen; it loses most of the nutritional value, along with its flavor and color, during processing. Once opened, hemp seed oil needs to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer and should be used within three months. Unopened hemp seed oil can be kept in the pantry; refer to the "best by" date on the package for the shelf life. Along with hemp seeds and hemp protein, hemp seed oil is a way to get the benefits of this superfood. Advocates of cooking with hemp seed oil point to the seed's rich omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids content, which contribute to the health of cell membranes and skin, hair, and nails; help reduce inflammation; and improve heart health, among other benefits.
Hemp seed oil has a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, matching the balance required by the human body for optimal health, and one tablespoon provides the recommended daily requirement. It's a source of vitamins A and E, and, at 5 to 7 percent, low in saturated fat compared with many other culinary oils. A 1-tablespoon serving contains about 125 calories. Usually referred to as hemp seed oil, but sometimes called cannabis sativa seed oil or just plain hemp oil, this product is different than CBD oil, a product most often used medicinally or therapeutically. It comes from the flowers or stems of the cannabis plant and contains cannabinoids, sometimes including THC, the chemical responsible for marijuana's effect. Standard hemp seed oil is made by cold-pressing hemp seeds and has no psychoactive properties.
