Hemp Seed Oil (Cannabis Sativa Hemp Seed Oil) has a long history in eastern culture as a great source of high quality nutrition and as a multi-purpose natural healing alternative. Although the oil is produced from the seeds of the cannabis plant, it does not contain THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive phytochemical found in the cannabis plant. Even if there were slight traces, the amount would be so insignificant it would not produce any psychoactive effects. Hemp Seed Oil has a history of use for its medicinal and nutritional properties dating back as far as 4000 B.C. in China. The oil is extracted from a tall-growing variety of cannabis that has a low concentration of THC. Hemp Seed Oil is considered to be the most nutritional and healing of all oils available.

Australian Farming Practices
Ingredients used in Z Balm are grown in nature with minimal human intervention. Furthermore, ingredients are harvested with no impact to the environment in which they naturally grow. This method of harvesting means that our ingredients are the most organically grown using the most ecologically friendly farming environments. Our ingredients are truly chemical-free and of superior Australian quality. Many tattoo aftercare products in the market are made using imported ingredients from countries that often don't offer the same agricultural quality assurance that Australia does. This is largely due to the regulation over growing practices, particularly in the hemp industry.
