For most home cooks, olive oil is to the kitchen cupboard what a Sunday paper is to the weekend. And for good reason – a number of studies have found that olive oil can help fight heart disease and lower blood pressure. However, here at Good Hemp we’re convinced that everything olive oil can do, hemp oil can do better.
Hemp oil can be used in exactly the same way as olive oil for many of your favourite recipes – over salads, in stir-fries and to make the perfect roast potatoes (both oils have a smoke point of around 180C and shouldn’t be used for deep-frying). So where do they differ? Hemp oil has 25 x more omega-3 oils and 40 % less saturated fats than olive oil. Here we’ve broken it down:
Both hemp seeds and flaxseeds are known for their hearty doses of protein, fibre.

For the purposes of this recipe, we are going to use a decarboxylation technique from cannabis chef Coreen Carroll, co-founder of the Cannaisseur Series.
A note about cannabis decarboxylation
Fill small saucepan with 3-inches water. Place Mason jar in pan and heat on low. Using candy thermometer, bring to gentle boil at 200˚F for 2½ to 3 hours. Make sure water does not exceed 211°F. Add water to saucepan as needed to compensate for evaporation. When finished, remove Mason jar safely with an oven mitt and let cool.
While there are many decarboxylation methods, activation is achieved by exposing dry cannabis to heat between 240–295˚F for 20 to 60 minutes. Heat for a shorter time at higher temperatures or for a longer time at lower temperatures between this range. For example, if you’re using a higher temperature (between 275˚F and 295˚F), bake for 20 minutes max and be careful not to overcook. Overheating can degrade cannabinoids and terpenes.
Place cheese cloth in fine-mesh strainer over clean 8-ounce Mason jar. Pour infused olive oil through cheesecloth into jar. Gently press to extract the oil. Avoid squeezing cheesecloth to minimize unattractive chlorophyll flavors.
