Why Is This Product On Rise?

Hemp Oil dries to a matte finish and will not produce a gloss or even much sheen. Boasting qualities such as food contact safe, hypoallergenic, all-natural VOCs, and no need for a solvent to thin the oil. This naturally thin viscosity oil will penetrate porous surfaces well. Use on bare wood, over milk paint, chalk paint, cutting boards, carved utensils, and to revive old wood finishes.

Safe for wood items in kitchens, such as cutting boards, wooden utensils, and countertops. Less durable and not as water-resistant as Pure Tung Oil. Great for lightly used items. Takes 7 to 10 days for a partial cure, 15 to 30 for a full cure.

The color of the oil can range from a light green to golden yellow depending on weather conditions and time of harvest. The primary advantage over Pure Tung Oil is the viscosity of Hemp Oil in that it requires no thinning with Citrus Solvent. However, it can be thinned with Citrus Solvent if a thinner viscosity is required

Specifications

Coverage
  • 32 oz. covers 100 sq. feet
  • Gallon covers 400 sq. feet

This is coverage for the oil only and not diluted with any Citrus Solvent, Pine Oil, or any other thinner. Thinning the oil will increase its coverage as well as enhance is saturation abilities.

What It's Made Of

We believe in being honest with what is in our products. So, thats why we provide the ingredients used in them so you can rest assured knowing exactly whats in the product you purchase from us. Its just a way we make it easier on you.

 

Hemp Oil is made of

  • Industrial Hemp Oil

Details

  • Our Hemp Oil is derived from cold pressed industrial hemp.

Preparation

  • The best operating temperature for applying Hemp Oil is above 50°F ( 10°C ).
  • Be sure the surface of your project is free of dust, debris, or grime.
  • If you need to sand your surface, we recommend not going above 220 grit sandpaper. Too high of a sandpaper grit will “polish” the surface, hindering proper absorption of Pure Tung Oil.
  • If stripping your surface is needed, we recommend using Soy Gel: Paint and Urethane Stripper.
  • If you are looking for a darker finish color finish, we recommend using water or alcohol-based stains on the wood before the Hemp Oil is applied. Most oil-based stains should be avoided as they tend to seal the wood and prevent absorption of the Hemp Oil.
  • DO NOT use a wood conditioner. This will seal the wood and prevent the hemp oil from absorbing.

Application Instructions

When applying Hemp Oil over an existing finish for furniture or finish restoration follow these steps.

  1. Apply Hemp Oil with a lint free cloth, such as an old t-shirt.
  2. Wipe onto surface liberally
  3. Allow oil to soak into the surface for 40 minutes.
  4. Wipe off any excess oil that may be on the surface.
  5. Allow Hemp Oil to 7 to 10 days before use.

When applying Hemp Oil on raw wood, here’s a handy thing to remember: Apply, Absorb, Repeat or Remove

For the best results, you want to saturate the material with the hemp oil to the point where a majority of the surface is no longer absorbing the oil. This will look like puddles on the surface even after waiting 40 minutes. Just like a sponge, the wood (or other porous surfaces) will only absorb so much oil before it can’t anymore. This saturation is achieved by doing multiple coats.

You can apply Hemp Oil with a brush, rag, roller, or even a pump sprayer depending on your project and needs. We recommend brushes and/or foam rollers for most projects.

  1. Apply a generous first coat.
  2. Let the hemp oil absorb into the surface, waiting if needed, up to 40 minutes.
  3. Apply another coat, let it absorb, and repeat the previous steps.
  4. Continue this process until you reach the desired amount of coats or have fully saturated the wood. You can tell the wood is saturated when the oil puddles on the surface and no longer absorbs oil across a majority of the surface. To be sure, wait 40 minutes. If the oil is still puddling, then you will know the surface is saturated.
  5. Taking a clean rag or cloth, remove any excess hemp oil that is puddling or pooling on the surface.
  6. Hang those oil-soaked rags outdoors to dry. DO NOT pile the rags or put them in a container.

For the best finish, we recommend letting this application rest and settle overnight. The following day, apply one or two more coats of Hemp Oil to the surface of your project, following the same steps outlined above.

Curing

Hemp Oil does not contain any additives to speed the drying process, such as heavy metallic dryers. Because of this, it can take up to 30 days to completely/thoroughly cure by its natural polymerization process. Provided below are some guidelines to follow during the curing phase.

  • Hemp Oil cures best in warm, well-ventilated places. The warmer and more ventilated the area, the faster it will cure.
  • Placing objects on the surface will “suffocate” and prevent the Hemp Oil from curing properly. If there is no airflow between the surface and the object, it should be removed until the curing is complete (30 days).
  • During the first 15 days of curing, you can use the surface. However, you will want to avoid getting it dirty or allowing liquids to puddle on the surface during this period.
  • As the oil cures, its durability and resistance to liquids and dirt will also increase. The first 7-15 days is when the oil is at its freshest and weakest state. After that point, increased regular use of the surface can take place.
  • As Hemp Oil cures, it slightly expands and may push fresh oil back to the surface. Check for oil that may be seeping to the surface and remove it, if found, with a rag.

Specific Projects

FOR BUTCHER BLOCK, WOOD COUNTERTOPS, AND ETC.
  • Avoid getting dirt, water, or other liquids on the surface of the butcher block for at least the first 7-10 days.
  • We recommend putting wax or parchment paper down near sinks when doing dishes and other activities that splash water about. This will prevent the water from pooling on the surface and can be easily removed after dishwashing.
  • Avoid putting cutting boards, appliances, dishes, and other objects that sit close to the recently refinished surface for extended periods of time. These objects prevent airflow and can hinder Hemp Oil from curing.
  • If you are mounting or under mounting a sink, we recommend waiting for 7-10 days before mounting the sink. We also recommend using either a Polyurethane-Acrylic Caulk or a 100% Acrylic Caulk. Silicone caulk tends to pull away from the oiled surface over time.
  • If you have an under-mount sink, we highly recommend saturating the end grain of the butcherblock in the sink area. This will help seal the very porous ends of the wood and give it the best resistance to water.

Maintenance

The beautiful thing about a Hemp Oil finish is that the maintenance of it is easy. We recommend cleaning with mild soap and hot water. Avoid using harsh chemicals, acids, or strong solvents to clean the surface.

Maintenance coats are on an as-need basis. Some well-used surfaces may require more frequent maintenance than others. Typically, surfaces that need maintenance have a very dry, or lackluster appearance compared to when the finish was originally applied.

When doing a maintenance coat you do not need to sand the surface again. Here is what we recommend;

  1. Apply Hemp Oil with a lint free cloth, such as an old t-shirt.
  2. Wipe onto surface liberally
  3. Allow oil to soak into the surface for 40 minutes.
  4. Wipe off any excess oil that may be on the surface.
  5. Allow Hemp Oil to 7 to 10 days before use.
  6. Hang oil-soaked rags outdoors to dry.
  7. Go back to enjoying the surface like normal!

Storage

Hemp Oil can last with ease for multiple years on the shelf. Here are some guidelines to help you store it properly so it can be used for your next project.

  • Make sure the lid on the Hemp Oil packaging is tightly screwed on. This will keep air exchange from happening in the container.
  • Store the bottle in a dry, moderate temperature environment. A place where it won’t freeze or become excessively hot. Freezing of the oil will make the natural fats separate from the oil. Excessive heat can cook the oil to the point where it cures in the bottle.

Hints and Tips

  • Hemp Oil can be applied to any porous surfaces.
  • Hemp Oil is also a great wood finish restorer. It can repair worn wood finishes just by simply wiping it onto the surface of the wood.
  • Hemp Oil is especially useful for sealing and protecting wooden kitchen items such as cutting boards, wooden utensils, wooden bowls, and the like!
  • When applying Hemp Oil over a milk painted surface, we recommend buffing the surface with a soft cloth prior to application of the oil. This will help remove any loose pigments from the surface.
  • The number of coats of oil to be applied will be determined by the intended use of the piece. One to two coats are enough for decorative work, paneling and molding. For surfaces that receive moderate to heavy use or handling need a minimum of three and on up to six coats for maximum protection. Hemp Oil is best used for lightly to moderately used items. Pure Tung Oil is more durable and thus should be used for surfaces expected to get heavy use.
  • Apply till the surface reaches the saturation point. This will be evident as the surface will not absorb more oil.
  • Do not get hung up on the number of coats, let the wood tell you when it has reached its maximum saturation.
  • The Hemp Oil will be in the wood up to the surface not on the wood surface like varnish or polyurethane topcoat. The end result is more like seasoning a cast iron pan. This product will give you a surface that will stand up to use and spills: water will bead on the surface.
  • Renewal and/or maintenance coats are thinly applied with cheesecloth, lint-free cloths (old bed sheets work well), or old t-shirt material on an as need be basis.
  • After the Hemp Oil has completely cured (minimum 30 days) cleaning of the surface can be done using hot water and mild soap, such as dish soap. Avoid using hard chemicals or acids for cleaning.
