Organic Hemp Seed Oil – Artisan Cold Pressed, 100% Pure Hemp Oil, Tastes Great, and Healthy
Foods Alive’s Organic Hemp Oil comes from a specially selected variety of hemp seeds that were brought over from Europe years ago. They were carefully chosen for its light, nutty flavor, and because it boasts the best nutritional profile of all the varieties currently grown in Canada.
Hemp Oil is considered to be one of the most nutritious of all plant oils and contains super omega-3 (SDA) and super omega-6 (GLA). But not all hemp oil is created equally.
- Made in the USA, where we use low temperatures to preserve the vital living enzymes and essential nutrients.
- Before we decide which seed to use, we cold-press samples from several certified organic farmers. Then we taste each batch to find the one with the lightest and nuttiest taste, while also preserving its full potential of essential minerals and nutrients.
- Once we decide on the best seeds, our cold-pressed oils are crafted in small batches at a very low temperature on our own equipment to ensure the finest quality and taste. This extra attention to detail allows us to maintain the superior quality you have come to expect from Foods Alive.
- Our Artisan Cold-Pressed Oils consistently beat the leading brands in blind taste tests!
- Real health food! Full of heart-healthy omega fatty acids. Omega fatty acids are essential and are associated with benefits like reduced inflammation, improved heart health, and brain health.
- Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Kosher.
- Unrefined and free of preservatives.
- We use BPA-free bottles that are black to protect contents from light, which can degrade the oil. We also have a bulk size available in a glass bottle.

Do your artisan cold-pressed oils need to be shipped refrigerated? Does the shipping time affect the oils?
When tested, the relatively short shipment times and variable seasonal temperatures encountered during shipment have been found to be irrelevant. Even shipments arriving during the summer heatwaves can be guaranteed as being potent and unharmed.
Are the plastic bottles BPA-free?
Yes, we use BPA-free bottles made of Polyethylene and the main difference is that our bottle is black to protect it from light which can degrade the oil. If you’re looking to ditch plastic completely, we do offer this oil in a 32 oz glass bottle.
Can I cook with your artisan cold-pressed oils?
Cooking with our artisan cold-pressed oils is not recommended. The smoke point (the temperature at which an oil will burn and become rancid) of hemp oil is 330 degrees Fahrenheit, most forms of cooking will easily exceed this temperature. Cooking with our oils will not only affect the taste, but omega essential fatty acids are very delicate and high heat will destroy them. However, you can use the oils after cooking on a number of dishes by adding it once it’s on your plate and ready to consume.
Will I test positive for a drug screen if I eat your hemp foods?
To assure consumers that eating our hemp foods does not cause a confirmed positive drug test for marijuana, we have partnered with the TestPledge program. Foods Alive is committed to keeping THC levels in hemp seeds and hemp oil below levels at which failing a workplace drug test is extremely unlikely, even when eating high amounts of these products on a daily basis.

7 foods to elevate effects of CBD supplements
Getting the most out of your CBD is essential for a variety of reasons. The first being it is expensive. Buying CBD oil can cost upwards of 100 dollars for a 30ml bottle. If you are using CBD daily (which we highly recommend), this becomes a monthly expense. Another reason is you want as much CBD to get into the bloodstream as possible to experience the benefits.
Absorption and bioavailability become very important for CBD users who want to get the most out of their CBD. Research has shown that taking CBD on a full stomach increase absorption leading to high bioavailability. We have come up with seven foods to take before taking your dose of CBD to get the most out of your product.
How to Increase CBD Bioavailability?
A study done by the University of Minnesota’s phrenological department tested bioavailability for CBD with or without food. The researchers also concluded that foods with high levels of healthy fat would also increase absorption rates.
If you are taking CBD oil, we first want to make sure you are administering it correctly. CBD oil is meant to be taken sublingually or absorbed under the tongue. Allowing CBD oil to dissolve under the mucosal glands located under the tongue fully allows the CBD to enter the bloodstream more efficiently.
Relatively speaking, CBD oil taken sublingually is the most efficient way to take CBD . Many users put CBD oil in food and will not receive the benefits of sublingual administration. If you are concerned about getting as much of your CBD to the bloodstream as possible, we recommend eating one of the foods on our list and taking the CBD oil sublingually as soon as you can right afterward.
Best Way to Absorb CBD
The foods on our list are all high in healthy fats. These foods increase the bioavailability of CBD and maximize its benefits. A recent study claims that taking CBD on a full stomach after a meal high in fat can increase the absorption rates by up to 400%.
Our seven CBD potentiators can be eaten directly before or along with your dose of CBD to maximize the effects. Experiencing the benefits of CBD can take time and consistency. Taking a regular amount along with one of these seven foods maximizes the potential to deliver the benefits.
#1 Fatty Fish
Most people agree that eating fatty fish is one of the healthiest meals available. Salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines, and herring are among the types of fish considered to contain large amounts of healthy fats.
Fish are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and nutrients but can also help you absorb CBD more efficiently. If you are experiencing mental health issues that keep you from getting everything you want to get done during the day, try eating salmon and eggs (another healthy fat) at breakfast, followed by a dose of CBD.
We didn’t feature any other fruits on our list of foods to take with CBD because they are usually made up of carbs. However, avocados are packed with fats and are the perfect food to maximize bioavailability.
Elevate the effects of CBD by eating an avocado before taking CBD sublingually. Unlike salmon, avocados are an extremely affordable way to increase absorption.
#3 Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is by far the tastiest and most convenient way to increase bioavailability. About 65% of the calories in dark chocolate consist of fat. Dark chocolate is also loaded with antioxidants that have some of the same benefits as CBD.
Potentiating CBD can also be done with nuts. Almonds and walnuts are among the healthiest, packed with healthy fats and plant-based protein.
Just a handful of almonds contains enough fat to increase the bioavailability of your CBD.
#5 Whole Eggs
Many people consider eggs unhealthy because of their cholesterol content; however, recent research has found that the cholesterol in eggs does not affect the cholesterol in the blood.
Eggs are, in fact, packed with healthy fats, vitamins, protein, and nutrients. They are perfect for taking with CBD if you are looking to get the most out of your CBD oil, especially if you are using CBD products to lose weight.
Taking CBD oil to lose weight is perfectly complimented with eggs because the eggs are so nutrient-dense. Taking CBD can suppress the appetite, and taken along with CBD, it can serve as a way to feel full.
Cheese is another food that is regarded as unhealthy but is actually packed with nutrients and healthy fats . A single slice of cheese can contain as much protein as a glass of milk.
Taking CBD with cheese can maximize bioavailability because it is packed with healthy fats.
#7 Coconuts and Coconut Oil
Many CBD oil manufacturers use MCT oil (coconut oil) as a carrier for their CBD. Coconuts are a great source of healthy fats and other vitamins and minerals. Cooking with coconut oil is a healthy option for butter and vegetable oil because it has fewer calories.
Taking CBD oil with MCT oil is beneficial, but eating additional coconut will deliver increased levels of absorption and bioavailability.
Enhance CBD Oil<
CBD oil food is a popular way of taking CBD, but we recommend eating a food high in healthy fats followed by sublingual CBD oil. Edible CBD is not as effective as CBD oil and has a much lower bioavailability.
Taking CBD on a full stomach creates the best environment for CBD to provide the most benefits possible. Utilizing our recommendation for foods with healthy fats and taking CBD sublingually will deliver the highest bioavailability and absorption rates. Next time you take CBD, try filling your stomach with some food high in healthy fats.
