    Anyone use it? Have it in their routine of supplements and vitamins?

    Do you like it? Find it effective?


    Your thoughts appreciated.

    Why take that instead of fish oil? First thing is that I think the EFAs are not DHA/EPA, so are probably of little value.

    Is there any chance of testing + for mari-juh-wanna?

    I didn't say I wasn't taking other things (such as fish oil, etc)... I just wanted an opinion on this by itself. I heard an added benefit is it helps the skin?

    I heard it helps you grow dreadlocks too.

    Sorry--didn't mean to assume. The first thing I read about hemp oil was about its EFA content, so I assumed the idea was to use it mostly as an Omega-3 supplement. Best I can tell, most plant-based Omega-3 supplements (flax, etc.) are just about totally worthless because they have ALA instead of DHA/EPA.
