Known as one of the most nutritional oils available, hempseed oil is popular as both a beauty aid and dietary supplement that benefits your body both inside and out.
What is Hempseed Oil?
Hempseed oil has been around worldwide for hundreds of years, being used in Eastern culture as a multipurpose natural remedy. Even though hempseed oil is just recently becoming more popular, people have known about the benefits for centuries. Did you know that Thomas Jefferson grew hemp on his land?
But don’t confuse hempseed oil with hemp oil, they are derived from different species and different parts of the plant. While hempseed oil is extracted from the seeds of the cannabis plant, it does not contain THC. But using this oil on your skin offers some powerful health benefits you’ll want to reap.
Produced by cold-pressing seeds from the hemp plant, this ingredient contains all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids that are necessary for human life. It is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and is rich in vitamin D, which acts as a barrier for the skin and helps lock in natural moisture.
