Does hemp oil relax you? Well, the answer is complicated. Hemp oil, otherwise known as hemp seed oil, is different from the cannabis that you would buy in a legal dispensary in states that offer legal cannabis. The ingredient comes from cold-pressed hemp seeds and contains no Cannabidiol (CBD) or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which are the two cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant that can cause either pain relief or psychoactive response. In that sense the answer is no, hemp seed oil won’t relax you, but there are tons of other benefits that make it a great ingredient in personal care and beauty products. Here are just a few of the benefits that it does have:
Hemp seed oil is rich in nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, linoleic acid, and oleic acid that your skin needs to maintain a healthy, hydrated glow. Beyond that, its nourishing ingredients can help soothe and reduce redness caused by irritation on blemishes, bug bites, and scratches that can make your skin appear red and feel irritated. It can also help soothe irritation from chronic skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, and other things like rosacea—though it’s not an FDA approved ingredient to be used as a substitute for medicated treatments for these conditions, it does have anti inflammatory properties.
Your skin won't absorb water easily on its own. If that were the case, splashing water on your face would be a more than sufficient way to maintain hydration on your skin. Instead it needs nourishing ingredients like hemp seed oil, which is rich in the fatty acids that can help your skin absorb water. Regular use of products with hemp seed oil will help your skin maintain a healthy hydration barrier, which will help your skin appear more supple.
In the same ways that hemp seed oil is hydrating, it’s also anti-aging. While nothing can technically reverse the aging process once it begins, certain skin care ingredients can help to diminish the signs of aging by nourishing your skin with vitamins and minerals that help it look young and supple. Products like the Tea Tree & Hemp Oil body wash help your skin maintain its soft, young glow by hydrating it and nourishing it with those vital nutrients that it needs to be able to stay young looking.
If you have ever noticed that your skin tends to look more wrinkled when you’re dehydrated, tired, or just haven’t been taking care of it, it’s because it’s lacking essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids that can help it look young and healthy. Use products that contain natural ingredients like hemp seed oil to help nourish your skin and maintain a youthful glow.
