Hemp - nature's most complete oil! - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Hemp seed oil comes from the small seeds of the Cannabis Sativa plant and is made by cold-pressing hemp seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered by many as the most balanced oil in all of nature.  Hemp seeds are 100% natural, vegan, full of plant-based protein, packed with healthy fats and perfectly balanced with the correct ratio of the essential fatty acids Omega 6 to Omega 3.
