Hemp Seed Oil Topical Benefits
Hemp Seed Oil contains many beneficial nutritive items that assist with problem skin. Some of these items include: Vitamin E, Chlorophyll, Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, GLA, phytosterols, phosspholipids, carotenes, calcium, magnesium, potassium and antioxidants. Hemp oil is non-greasy, absorbs readily into the skin’s pores and carries moisturizing benefits for the skin. In addition to topical application hemp oil taken internally compliments an overall skin care regimen. US Hemp Oil’s Chris Boucher recommends taking 2 teaspoons daily – mixing in protein shakes or use on salads. Combined with the topical application – many with problem skin have seen results in an improved appearance.
Hemp Seed Oil replenishes our EFA's (essential fatty acids), which helps our skin hold moisture, making it a natural humectant. The effectiveness of our barrier function is what determines the moisture level of our skin, thus the softness and smoothness. EFA's specifically Omega 6, Omega 3 and Omega 9 preserve this barrier.

CBD or Cannabidiol is a natural constituent of the hemp plant that has shown significant health and wellness benefits – CBD promotes and supports the dietary and nutritional health of aging bodies (US Government patent # 6,630,507).
Cannabinoids are extracts derived from the industrial hemp plant and cannabidiol or CBD as it is known, is the most abundant cannabinoid that is so extracted. The human body will produce its own natural cannabinoids when undertaking extreme exercise. Our CBD infused products, derived from the natural industrial hemp plant can help maintain or promote the nutritional and dietary health to assist aging bodies.
All About Hemp
Industrial hemp seed is extremely nutritious, perhaps one of the top plants in terms of meeting human (and animal) nutrition. Hemp based products contain significant amounts of properly balanced essential fatty acids, both Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils. These essential fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the body – they must come from dietary sources. Studies have shown benefits for cardio-vascular health with a proper balance of these EFA’s. Resource: http://www.drbronner.com/pdf/hempnutrition.pdf plus NIH studies: http://ods.od.nih.gov/news/conferences/w6w3_abstracts.html.
Hemp also contains all the amino acids, including all the essential amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. These essential amino acids, like the EFA’s cannot be synthesized - they MUST come from dietary sources. Key minerals, vitamins and enzymes are also present. Hemp is considered a complete food source – one could live off a diet of just natural hemp seed for a long time http://www.drbronner.com/pdf/hempnutrition.pdf .
Beyond the amazing nutritional benefits, certain types of hemp contain significant quantities of cannabidiol (CBD). One cannabinoid in particular has received significant attention recently: Cannabidiol (CBD) – to the point where the US Government actually holds a patent on the therapeutic usage of CBD. US Patent # 6,630,507.
