If you are new to the world of hemp, you are probably surprised by the staggering number of products out there. Hemp is everywhere, and products made from hemp have grown in popularity to fill every niche imaginable in the self-care space. For nearly every part of the human body, there is a hemp-based self-care product for targeted use on that body part. As you wander through the world of hemp, learning about the countless products available to you, you might wonder: is hemp really for me?
Well here is a list of reasons why hemp is for you! The hype surrounding hemp is real, and it all comes from a simple plant that has been often used, and sometimes misunderstood by people for a long time. If you are deciding to try products made from hemp, or are a longtime hemp enthusiast, consider the following ten reasons why you should definitely be using hemp!
10. Hemp Moisturizes Your Skin After the Sun
Like the Aloe Vera plant, Hemp contains compounds that moisturize and protect the skin. Hemp seed oil restores missing moisture and helps hydrate your skin after exposure to the sun. The inherent moisturizing properties of hemp oil help to soothe dry, sun-exposed skin and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. Hemp seed oil also contains anti-inflammatory compounds which can help to soothe a sunburn.
9. Hemp Products Contain No THC
If you are new to hemp products, it’s important to know they contain no THC – the psychoactive ingredient found in some strains of the Cannabis plant. Hemp products use strains of the hemp plant already low in THC and the hemp seed oil extracted from them is purified to remove all traces of THC. Products made from hemp are classified as nutritional supplements and are completely legal to buy. To ensure the hemp products you use are 100% THC-free, make sure the products are made with pure hemp seed oil. All Uncle Bud’s Hemp and CBD products are guaranteed to be THC-free (below .03% THC).
8. Hemp is Good for Your Face
Hemp seed oil is a perfect solution to the unique needs of the delicate, sensitive skin on your face.
Hemp seed oil is a concentration of beneficial plant-based compounds like moisturizers, anti-inflammatories, fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants, and omegas. When hemp seed oil is mixed with other over-the-counter beauty care ingredients, they combine to offer an amazing array of skin-nourishing benefits ideal for the unique needs of your face. Hemp face-care products offer a wide variety of benefits to your face beyond moisturizing such as gentle cleansing, exfoliating, restoring nutrients, and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
7. Hemp Can Benefit Your Dog
You might be surprised to learn the physiology of our furry friends isn’t all that different from our own. Dogs have very different nutritional needs than humans, but the biological process happening inside dogs are nearly the same as those of humans. Similarly, your dog’s hair and skin can benefit from products made from hemp in the same ways as your skin and hair. Dogs can even benefit from edible supplements like CBD chews. Hemp and CBD oil, along with other therapeutic ingredients, can create supplements that dogs can benefit from just as easily as humans can.
6. Hemp is Safe and Legal
Hemp is sometimes incorrectly associated with THC-bearing cannabis, which is known for its psychoactive effects. Newcomers to hemp may be worried that hemp products might contain some amounts of this substance and want to avoid any risk of accidentally using a product with THC. It’s important to remember that only some strains of cannabis contain THC, and products made from common industrial hemp have none or below 0.03% and are completely legal.
Though products made from pure hemp seed oil are safe to use as over-the-counter supplements made from a naturally mild botanical oil, they are nutritional supplements, and should not be considered a medical treatment, or used to treat any specific medical condition.
5. Hemp is Great for Your Skin
The primary ingredient in hemp skincare products is hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil contains a unique mixture of compounds that are beneficial for the skin. Rich in moisturizers, antioxidants, vitamins, and all 21 known amino acids, hemp is abundant in nutrients that hydrate, protect, and nourish the skin. Hemp oil contains vitamins A and E, the key vitamins for skin health that help the skin retain its strength and elasticity. Omega-6 fatty acids help restore moisture to dry skin when applied topically. Although they come from a plant, the botanical ingredients in hemp seed oil mimic the oils our skin produces on its own, making hemp ideal for sensitive skin irritated by synthetic products.
4. Hemp Bath & Body Care
Hemp bath products can take your evening bath or spa routine to a whole new level of sensuous relaxation. With hemp, it’s just as much about the relaxation experience as it is about the skincare benefits. Hemp seed oil is full of moisturizers and other skin-nourishing ingredients that cleanse, hydrate, and beautify your skin. The skin when immersed in warm water is an excellent way to absorb the nutrients in hemp seed oil through what’s called transdermal absorption. Hemp bath and body care solutions infuse your skin and your whole body when you apply them during and after a bath. Adding hemp to your nighttime bath routine adds a luxurious new layer of wellness, and can take any home spa strategy to the next level of relaxation and invigoration with whole body care.
3. Hemp Topical Pain Relief
When you think of pain relief you probably don’t think of hemp, but hemp seed oil actually has anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp seed oil can be mixed with other anti-inflammatory and over-the-counter pain relief ingredients to create topical pain relief solutions. Hemp pain relief topicals are various creams, balms, and rubs that are applied to the skin and penetrate the sore muscles and joints below. The hemp seed oil and other anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Trolamine Salicylate infuse muscle and joint tissue and work to reduce the swelling and associated pain. Hemp topical pain relief is used by athletes, workout enthusiasts, people with arthritis, or anyone seeking a more natural, non-pharmaceutical alternative relief from common types of muscle and joint pain.
2. Hemp Edibles: Gummies and Sublinguals
Hemp and CBD supplements that are chewed, swallowed, placed under the tongue, or otherwise administered orally, are edibles – and they are among the most popular hemp-based supplements. Gummies are chewed and swallowed, allowing the digestive system to absorb the active ingredients and transport them throughout the body. Sublingual tinctures are not swallowed but are still taken into the mouth, where they are absorbed prior to entering the digestive system.
Hemp edibles like Gummies and Sublinguals use the mouth or digestive system to absorb the ingredients and transport them via the bloodstream to every part of the body quickly and effectively. When you take an edible supplement, the digestive system acts quickly to spread the beneficial ingredients and therapeutic compounds throughout the body, creating a holistic or “whole body” therapeutic effect that’s both safe and effective.
1. Hemp is Full of Good Stuff
People have known about Hemp’s beneficial properties for thousands of years, but only recently has its wide variety of therapeutic uses become fully explored by the wellness community. One drop of the pale green botanical oil extracted from the hemp plant contains a multitude of compounds that are beneficial to the human body. Hemp seed oil is full of nutrients like moisturizers, antioxidants, omegas, vitamins, and anti-inflammatories. These natural ingredients when combined with other ingredients offer a litany of health and therapeutic benefits to various parts of your body.
Whether it’s your skin, your hair, your muscles, your face, or any other body part – you can bet there is a hemp product that you can use on it. This is because of the broad and universal benefits associated with hemp seed oil, the nourishing botanical oil extracted from the simple yet unique hemp plant. As the benefits of hemp continue to become better understood, the family of hemp self-care products will continue to grow and be adopted by millions of people in the health and wellness community.
