What is Hemp Seed Oil

What is Hemp Seed Oil?

In our earlier article on Hemp Oil, we examined its source and its commonly attributed benefits. We considered it'd be very helpful to present the most commonly asked questions with regard to Hemp Oil and its cousin, Hemp Oil Extract (including CBD).

In the Carolina Hemp Hut stores, we see hundreds of people weekly. Many of our first time customers are still unaware of what Hemp Oil really is. Most are ill-informed by the grocery stores, vape/tobacco stores and other sources such as Amazon. We’ve also seen products labeled as one thing but sold as another – effectively separating people from their money without value being provided. We want all of our customers to have the bests experience not only with our stores and products, but with cannabis products in general. This is why we continue to provide information to educate consumers of hemp and cannabis products.

We considered it would be very helpful to present the most commonly asked questions with regard to Hemp Oil and its cousin, Hemp Oil Extract (including CBD).

What is hemp oil good for?

Hempseed oil is often referred to as “hemp oil,” and it’s harvested by cold-pressing hemp seeds. Hemp seeds, as you may already know, are the seeds of the Cannabis plants. In the United States, the most common seed products come from the Cannabis Sativa plants. Hemp seeds have a rich nutrient profile, lots of good fats and fatty acids and carries a wide range of nutrients. Hemp seed oil can help skin health, inflammation, brain & hearth health. Hemp seed oil is a worthy addition into anyone’s diet.

Does Hemp Oil help you sleep?

It’s possible to find retailers claiming that hemp oil aids in sleep or that it makes you sleepy. While the jury is still out on how effective CBD and related cannabinoids are for sleep, there has been no proof that hemp seed extract or hemp oil is useful for improving sleep directly. Hemp Oil Extract with CBD and other naturally occurring cannabinoids has been shown in studies to reduce anxiety and influence the sleep processes positively. One phytocannabinoid that has shown interesting results is CBN.

Is Hemp Oil safe to take?

Since Hemp Oil is different from CBD and other cannabinoids resulting from the extract of the aerial parts of the Hemp Plant, it’s both readily available and legal in all 50 States. Many people find it useful in salads and recipes as it assists in boosting beneficial Omega fatty acids. As with other diet-related oils, Hemp Oil is safe to take as long as too much is not consumed at one time. This may often result in diarrhea or intestinal discomfort.

What are the benefits of Hemp Oil?

Hemp Seed Oil has a significant amount of naturally occurring linoleic acid and oleic acids. These are known to play a vital role in skin health and anti-aging. Since these cannot be produced by humans naturally, inclusion of hemp seed oil in the diet is beneficial. Hemp Seed oil, however, is exceptional with its inclusion of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation. Skin care products containing hemp seed oil are likely to improve skin health better than non-GLA oils.

Is Hemp Oil useful to treat pain?

Hemp Seed Oil may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as we age. More significant benefits may appear due to the natural anti-inflammatory aspects of the GLA along with the other Omega-3 fatty acids. If you’re suffering from eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, or similar, then hemp seed oil may be an important and helpful weapon in your health arsenal. While the anti-inflammatory properties of hemp oil are wonderful, there’s limited abatement from discomfort in most cases.

Is Hemp Oil good for a beauty regimen or skin care?

Absolutely. The naturally occurring lionoleic acid and oleic acids help with skin care immensely. The oil acts as a mild anti-inflammatory agent while working naturally with the skin – not clogging pores as many people would expect. Plus, it’s lower price point as compared to over the counter and premium beauty products makes is a good choice for a more natural and affordable approach to health and beauty.
