You’ve seen hemp seed oil listed in skin care ingredients, but do you know what it is? What does this oil do to your skin? Here are some answers to our customers’ commonly-asked questions about hemp seed oil:
Question: Does hemp seed oil contain THC and CBD?
Answer: Nope. This is because hemp seed oil is from the seeds of the hemp plant. As Medical News Today has verified: “The seeds do not contain the same levels of compounds as the plant itself, but they still have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds.”
Question: How does hemp seed oil effect your skin?
Answer: Hemp seed oil is extremely rich in essential fatty acids; this means it may have the ability to revitalize your skin while guarding it against inflammation. It was noted in a journal review that hemp seed oil is beneficial for alleviating many skin conditions, including: rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. In fact, “By using hemp seed oil, the skin is strengthened and made better able to resist bacterial, viral and fungal infections,” wrote Pharmacognosy Review contributors Nahida Tabassum and Mariya Hamdani.
