Hemp bits has a omega-6 / omega-3 ratio of 3 : 1 or less which is better than the target ratio of 4:1. Hemp oil also provides significant amounts of the more rare 'super' polyunsaturated fatty acids, notably gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA). These are not essential themselves, but our body only naturally produces them from the linoleic acid and alpha linolenic acid essential fatty acids, respectively. Supplementation with GLA and SDA appears to alleviate the symptoms of atopic dermatitis and other skin diseases in some patients.
