There has been a lot of attention lately around full spectrum hemp, with scientists and doctors devoting more time and attention continually learning about the health benefits it can provide.
Sleep Aid & Pain and Anxiety Management
A widely reported benefit of hemp oil is the improvement in sleep and management of pain and anxiety. For this purpose, a full-spectrum hemp oil works best as the various cannabinoids within work together to maximize their overall effectiveness. Take the recommended dosage once in the morning and/or once at night, and if you find the effects to be unsatisfactory or diminishing, slowly increase your dosage as needed.
The interactions of hemp oil’s effect on the human body lie within the endocannabinoid system in our brains. This system is known to regulate the release of neurotransmitters that affect stress, depression, anxiety, and other moods. Some studies have shown that Omega 3 fatty acids, as found in hemp oil, can even help improve symptoms of bipolar disorder.
Healthy Skin, Hair, Nails
Due to the natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, hemp oil is used in moisturizers and other skin products that can help reduce acne, dryness, and irritation.
Hemp oil naturally contains an abundance of terpenes, which are what give the plant its aroma, contributing to its therapeutic effects. Beta-caryophyllene and myrcene are two examples of terpenes found in hemp and are known to help with immune system regulation and depression, respectively. In addition to terpenes, full spectrum hemp CBD oil contains fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants, the combination of which makes it a strong superfood.
Studies have shown that gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega six fatty acid contained in hemp oil, is useful in hormone balance within the body and can ease pains from premenstrual cramps in women.
Mercury-Free Fatty Acid Supplement
Omega-3 fatty acids are widely known as being essential for brain development, mood regulation, and immune system health. Many rely on fish oil to get their daily Omega-3 dosage, however, if you’re looking for a mercury-free alternative, hemp oil may be a safer route.
Supports the Immune System
During the cold and flu season, it's essential to maintain a healthy immune system. Hemp seed oil can help with this as it contains essential fatty acids that promote a healthy gut as well as supporting immune system function and response.
