Growing in Popularity, Hemp Oil Can Boost Health and Help Manage Joint and connective tissue discomfort
24 April 2019, 14:49

For many years, Eastern cultures have used hemp to remedy a variety of ailments, but in Western cultures, the negative stigma around marijuana use has laid a black cloud over the use of hemp and cannabis products for medicinal purposes. Due to much research and positive studies over the last few years, things are fast changing and we now know that hemp contains little or no THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana).

This has led to a surge in the use of organic hemp oil with the market continuing to increase. Cannaboids found in hemp have made headlines for their multiple health benefits. The reason our bodies respond so well to hemp is due to our Endocannabinoid System, which is a series of receptors found throughout our; brain, immune system and central nervous system. This system helps to maintain a state of homeostasis or balance in our bodies.

Promotes Heart Health

Containing plant based essential fatty acids like omega-6, omega-3 and omega-9, full spectrum hemp oil may help to support reducing your risk of heart disease naturally.

Fights High Levels of Oxidative Stress

Too much stress, a high level of environmental pollutants and a diet filled with processed food can all contribute to a damaging level of oxidative stress in our bodies. Over time this can cause free radicals to damage cells and our DNA. Adding anti-oxidant rich hemp oil to your diet, can help to fight this and support to reduce oxidative stress.

Improved Exercise Recovery

Hemp oil contains cannabigerol (CBG), which is thought to inhibit the release of the neurotransmitter GABA and release muscle tension. Also, because it soothes inflammation, organic hemp oil is a great way to support the body when training regularly.

Healthy Skin, Nails and Hair

Due to its fatty acid content, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, hemp oil is thought to strengthen the skin and could even help to fight signs of ageing. If you suffer from acne, psoriasis or eczema, hemp oil products could also have a positive effect on your symptoms.

Promotes Healing

Beta-Caryophyllene and Myrcrene are terpenes which are found in hemp oil and give it the distinctive aroma. These are said to have therapeutic effects and can help with immune system regulation and depression.
