There are now many companies throughout New Zealand that are processing hemp to extract the hempseed oil. A cold-pressuring process is required to produce the oil. 

The NZ hemp industry is starting to expand and flourish at an unbelievable rate, as people across the country are embracing the benefits of hemp oil. The primary reason for this tremendous uptake is the numerous health benefits that include:

  1. Pain Relief

Do you know what traditional pain killers contain? It’s an anti-inflammatory property that hempseed oil has in abundance. By applying to an affected area, the pain reduces effectively in a very short time. This component in hempseed oil reduces inflammation through its Gamma-linoleic acid. The symptoms of inflammation will get instant relief. Hemp seed oil can provide a permanent remedy for conditions such as Rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and multiple sclerosis.

2. Lower Blood Pressure

An most effective way to reduce blood pressure is by taking Omega-3 fatty acids, which is contained in the hempseed oil in abundance. Along with regular blood pressure pills, your doctor may suggest taking hempseed oil. Therefore, many people in New Zealand that suffer from high bloody pressure have started experiencing excellent results from taking hemp oil on a regular basis.

3. Healthy Pregnancy

Researchers have confirmed that the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids is of utmost importance during pregnancy and assists greatly with having a health pregnancy and birth. Hempseed oil also helps in the development of your baby’s eyes and brain. Gynaecologists recommend that pregnant women consume hempseed oil, in measured amounts, for bringing a healthy baby into the world.

The dosage solely depends on what you expect from the oil and studies have suggested a 3:1 amount of fatty acid is provided by three spoons of hempseed oil. This will ensure your body receives the fatty acid that you need for a healthy diet. Hemp oil can be consumed directly, or you can mix it into your salads or smoothies.
