Hemp seed oil has become increasingly popularized in the skincare world. It’s a cold-pressed extract from the Cannabis sativa plant seeds and contains the healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids needed to maintain healthy, youthful skin from the inside out. Hemp seed oil is commonly used to calm down inflamed skin, balance oil production and reduce the dreaded fine lines and wrinkles that come with aging.
You can find hemp seed oil in our Calm and Balmy Hemp Face Serum. This gel moisturizer is our MD approved, fragrance free, mid-level moisturizer. It’s extremely light weight and leaves your skin feeling irresistibly plump and hydrated.
Best uses for Calm and Balmy Hemp Face Serum:
- Calms inflamed skin
The healthy fats, omega-3 and omega-6, that are found in this face serum help to maintain the structure of the epidermal skin layer. This layer is what regulates the amount of moisture that is lost from the skin. The thinner this layer becomes as we age, the more moisture we lose and the dryer our skin becomes. Dry skin can result in numerous skin disorders (eczema, psoriasis and acne) to name a few.
Use this face serum post-workout too, as skin can be sensitive and irritated due to the release of toxins through sweat.
- Balances out oil production
Dry skin can cause your skin to over-produce oil, and as a result, can stimulate the appearance
of acne. Use our face serum to keep your skin moisturized without clogging the pores.
- Anti-aging effects
Hemp seed oil is loaded with antioxidants from Vitamin E. When used regularly, the antioxidants work to block the skin from free radical damage, giving your skin a more youthful and refreshed look.
‘..but will I get high if I use hemp seed oil?’ You might be asking yourself this very question, and if you are, you’re not alone. This question comes up more often than not. Hemp seed oil does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main player in causing the euphoric “high” that most marijuana users will experience.
“Should I use hemp seed oil or CBD oil?” Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are commonly confused with one another, leaving many scratching their heads about which one is better for their situation. Here’s the scoop: hemp seed oil and CBD oil are both extremely useful in treating skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne, to name a few. This is due to their abundance in antioxidants and the result of their strong anti-inflammatory properties. The difference between these two is CBD oil, unlike hemp seed oil, contains trace amounts of THC and is therefore more widely used for its medicinal properties such as reducing pain, relieving stress, improving the quality of sleep and improving digestion.
