So, how do we make hemp seed oil?
Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Whanganui-Manawatu a collective of kiwi farmers cultivate hemp. After the annual harvest, the whole hemp seed is cold pressed at a slow rate and a low temperature to preserve its wonderful properties and ensure the highest quality product. After pressing, the oil undergoes filtration to ensure a smooth consistent oil, free of any sedimentation.
