What Is Hemp?

Hemp is a type of Cannabis sativa containing no more than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Varieties containing more than 0.3 percent THC are classified as marijuana. While hemp oil is derived from the stalks of hemp plants, hemp seed oil is derived from the hemp plant’s seeds, as the name suggests.

Hemp oil and hemp seed oils can be ingested orally, applied to the skin and inhaled.

Benefits & Positive Effects of Hemp Oils & Products

While researchers continue to study and evaluate the benefits of hemp oils, some currently known benefits of hemp include that it is:

  •  Highly nutritious – Hemp seeds provide a great source of protein, Vitamin E and various minerals, like magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron and zinc. They also contain antioxidants, which can reduce free radicals, as well as essential amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids, which can reduce inflammation, promote heart health and provide other health benefits.
  •  Effective at managing pain, nausea, anxiety and epilepsy – Hemp oils can reduce discomfort, inflammation, pain and spasms while promoting digestion and reducing the activity of the brain’s limbic system. Consequently, hemp oils can be useful for conditions associated with chronic pain and inflammation, as well as for migraines, nausea, anxiety disorders and seizure disorders.
  •  Useful at addressing the symptoms of PMS & menopause – The physical and emotional symptoms of PMS and menopause can also be reduced via hemp seeds, particularly in women who have not experienced relief with other treatments, drugs or therapies. Specifically, hemp oils can help reduce symptoms like irritability, breast pain, depression and bloating. They may also be effective at addressing the inflammation and hormone imbalances associated with menopause.
  •  Helpful in addressing skin disorders – Hemp seed oil can relieve dry skin and reduce itchiness and skin inflammation, making it powerful in the treatment of certain skin disorders like eczema. Additionally, hemp oils can help balance out skin oils, making hemp useful for acne.

The Bottom Line: Hemp products can be useful dietary supplements for promoting health, and they may be helpful in treating certain health conditions.

How to Choose the Right Hemp Products

Here are some quick tips that can help you select the best hemp products:

  1.  Choose products that are organically grown so that you are not unnecessarily exposed to potentially dangerous pesticides.
  2.  Pay attention to the extraction method used, and avoid products made via cheap methods that use toxic solvents.
  3.  Verify quality by checking third-party analysis certificates, which can provide key details about the composition of the hemp product.

If you are using a new hemp product for the first time, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

  1.  Consult a doctor before using hemp products if you have any health conditions, you are pregnant or nursing and/or you are taking certain medications.
  2.  Start low and slow, taking one small dose first and waiting at least 60 to 90 minutes before taking another dose so the hemp has time to achieve the desired effect.
  3.  Space doses out over the day, rather than taking one large dose for the day.
  4.  Don’t assume that the right dose for someone else is the right dose for you. Take care and time to gauge the appropriate dose for you, based on your genetic and biochemical makeup.
