Hemp is a plant of the marijuana family that has a lot of controversy attached to it. There are certain strains of hemp that contains a little amount of THC, which is the psychoactive part of the marijuana family. But this does not apply to all of the hemp strains of this plant.
Hemp oil is the medicinal section of the marijuana family, and this fact is currently regaining prominence. IN the past, access to hemp oil was not an issue, until people started abusing the marijuana plant, and the law had to intervene and declare it a controlled substance. Hemp oil could no longer be freely available since its production relied on the marijuana seeds. This led to a tricky situation, where CBD Hemp oil was declared legal, but any other part of the marihuana family was still illegal. Anyone found with the plant or seeds was in trouble with the law.
In recent times, its health and medical benefits have led to its wider spread availability, and the relaxation of the rules surrounding its production. The legalization of marijuana in various states means that production will go up.
In the past, hemp oil came in handy in treating menstrual pain, indigestion, anorexia, external wounds and infections, asthma, and many other conditions. Another use of the plant’s fiber was in the production of cloth, ropes, and sails. This practice has been revived, with the acceptance of the plant.
Hemp oil has in it a high percentage of unsaturated fats and essential fatty acids. The oil from the seeds, which are about a third of the seed’s total weight, contain a lot of essential nutrients, and so have to be pressed out of the seeds. This oil has the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 at a higher rate than anywhere else, except breast milk. On top of that, it will also have proteins, essential vitamins, and minerals. It thus makes for a good dietary supplement.
These fatty acids are critical when you are looking to restore proper nutrition and bring healing to the body. Hemp oil has other uses in the cosmetic industry. There have been examples of cases where hemp oil has led to a successful healing of various skin conditions as well as accidents like burns.
