Talking of butternut squash, this dairy-free butternut squash and hemp soup recipe uses a healthy dose of Good Hemp Oil. The butternut squash, rosemary and hemp oil give it allllll the flavour, while the unsweetened hemp milk gives it a creamy, rich texture (without the cream, of course).
This was how chef Hugh Fearnley– Whittingstall first convinced people that hemp oil was the next big thing. We know everyone has their favourite way of making roast potatoes, so why not make this one yours? Here’s the hemp oil roast potatoes recipe, take it as your own.
Watching the waistline? Good Hemp works great on roasted veg too. As we’re coming into the colder months, give it a whirl with pumpkin, sweet potato and butternut squash.
On Stir Fry
Ahh Good Hemp Oil , our oldest and dearest child. 20 years ago we set out on a mission to make hemp a kitchen staple around the world, armed with our first omega-rich culinary oil, and people loved it. They drizzled it on salads, made roast potatoes and even poured us over ice cream (that was Jamie Oliver and I think he’s the only person that ever done that…but we’ll take it). Today, despite having a whole range of products, we’ll never stop talking about the benefits of our oil (or hemp in general). And while we have no favourites (parents never do) Good Hemp Oil will always have a special place in our hearts.
The base to any great stir-fry is a culinary oil, along with garlic, ginger, chilli and soy (or tamari if you’re gluten-free). Cook up whatever veg, combine with your rice noodles, then pour some extra oil on top with a sprinkle of coriander.
If you’re not feeling stir-fry, try this miso quinoa bowl with mushrooms, cavolo nero and hemp seeds. The oil gives it a rich, nutty taste which complements the miso perfectly.
Anything olive oil can do, we can do better. Use hemp oil like you would olive oil, drizzled over crunchy lettuce leaves with a squeeze of lime or whipped into a tasty vinaigrette with balsamic, lemon, salt and pepper.

Potential Health Benefits of Hemp Oil
Hemp seed oil is used as a remedy for a range of conditions. Some studies show that its nutrients and minerals can contribute to better skin and heart health as well as reduced inflammation. Here’s a deeper look at what the research says about the potential health benefits of hemp oil:
Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment: “Scoping paper on the potential adverse effects of CBD products.”
The amino acid arginine is present in hempseed oil. Studies have shown that this ingredient contributes to a healthy cardiovascular system. Consuming foods with high arginine levels can help decrease the risk of heart disease.
Hemp seed oil’s high omega-3 fatty acid content makes it a beneficial supplement for women who are pregnant. Studies found that omega-3 fatty acids are vital during pregnancy. They support healthy brain and eye development for the baby and may also help prevent maternal depression.

Hemp seed oil’s ability to lower blood pressure may cause issues for people who have chronically low blood pressure. Low blood pressure (hypotension) can occur for a variety of reasons, including:
Although hemp seed oil offers many health benefits, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks.
