Hemp oil provides nine kcal/g. It’s also often compared to other cooking oils as it is very low in saturated fatty acids. Hemp oil can be kept frozen for longer periods of storage time when compared to other oils.

Hemp can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or imbalance of essential fatty acids.

Different consumption methods could also mean different effects and benefits from the product you choose. CBD hemp oil is commonly consumed sublingually by applying a few drops under the tongue.

With products like Cornbread Hemp’s Organic CBD Oil, this and the way it is formulated makes it one of the best products for nighttime use.

This whole flower oil has a floral, earthy taste and contains up to 2 mg of THC and 50 mg of CBD per serving.

Hemp Oil For Skin

Hemp oil is very nutrient-rich. It is unique from other plant extractions as it contains an excellent balance of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids.

These fatty acids are critical for optimal skin health. It’s also a great source of linolic acid, an omega 6 fatty acid that reduces inflammation and aids in acne treatment.

Hemp oil prevents excessive moisture loss, drying & cracking of the skin, in addition to being an excellent lubricant, making for an ideal ingredient for baby and skincare products.

Hemp oil has natural properties that make it an excellent organic sunblock. Many sunblock brands now include hemp oil, which includes skin health benefits on top of protecting you from UV rays.

Not only does hemp contain a wealth of healthy fats, but it also is a rich source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant essential for skin and overall health.

If you’re hoping to age gracefully, antioxidants are essential. Free radicals can wreak havoc on your DNA and cell membranes. Over time, the body accumulates damage from environmental free radicals.

Consuming foods high in antioxidant vitamins neutralizes free radicals and thereby protects your DNA and cells from damage.

Depending on the type of hemp oil you consume, the product may also contain cannabidiol (CBD), a more potent antioxidant than vitamin E.

Hemp Oil For Hair

The hemp seed oil contains ceramides. Ceramides are lipids (fats) that support cellular membranes. Cellular membranes act as gates or barriers that allow substances to exit or enter a cell. In hair, ceramides help prevent excess moisture from leaving the cells.

Consuming hemp oil or doing a weekly hemp oil mask can significantly improve your hair’s moisture quality. This means shiny, healthy locks. These ceramides also help prevent skin dryness.

This oil can stimulate hair growth and strengthen and moisturize your hair. You’ll see hemp oil becoming more and more popular in shampoos and hair conditioners.

Hemp Oil For Pain

The immune-modulating effects of essential fatty acids may improve arthritis symptoms. Studies have found that long-term fatty acid supplementation can improve arthritis pain scores and reduce the number of NSAIDs (drugs like ibuprofen) patients take.

As mentioned earlier, hemp oil contains a wealth of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fatty acids. Incorporating hemp oil into a green smoothie or taking it daily will drastically increase your omega 3 intake.

Much like the plant that it’s derived from, hemp oil also has medical properties. It contains linoleic acid, which can be used to treat diseases like neurodermatitis, rheumatoid arthritis & more.

Cooking With Hemp Oil

Hemp oil contains some of the same terpenes as dried cannabis bud. Terpenes are the aroma molecules found in plants. Beta-caryophyllene (pepper) and myrcene (musk) are both been found in hemp oil.

According to recent research, beta-caryophyllene acts as a cannabinoid in the body. It engages some of the same cell sites as smoked cannabis. In particular, the terpene interacts with cell receptors that regulate the immune system.

Myrcene has been found to have antidepressant and anti-inflammatory effects. It also acts as an antioxidant and helps molecules move across cell membranes.

The combination of essential fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants and healing terpenes make hemp oil one powerful superfood.
