First I want to make clear that my question is not about if plant sources might be a substitute for Omega 3s from fish, I know they are not. My question is if there are reasons against consuming them in foods like hemp seeds/hemp oil/flax seed/walnuts etc. as they are usually come with at least equal amounts of Omega 6s. My concern is that the Omega 3s from those sources do not count at all and I just increase my Omega 6 intake when having some hemp seeds e. g. I know it is a different type of Omega 3 but is it still an addition to my "Omega 3 account"? I do not eat those products in excess but I am somewhat fond of hemp seeds/protein powder (even that contains some fat). Thank you for your thoughts!

Plant sources of Omega 3 - just different or useless?
