Hemp oil can refer to a full spectrum of oil from the plant Cannabis sativa or hemp seed oil, i. e. an oil that comes only from the seeds of the hemp plant.
Hemp oil has a very low risk of poisoning, as all forms of hemp oil come from food grain hemp strains. The authors of a study by Cannabis magazine and the Cannabinoid Research Centre noted that hemp strains from food grains must contain less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the compound that causes the so-called “high” effect of marijuana.
Hemp oil is not the same as cannabidiol oil (CBD). CBD oil production uses the stems, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant, which contain a higher concentration of CBD, another potentially beneficial compound in the plant.
Hemp seed oil comes mainly from the small seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. Seeds do not contain the same levels of compounds as the plant itself, but they still have a profile rich in nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds.
Full-spectrum hemp oil, which also contains vegetable matter, can add other effective compounds that can help solve certain health problems, such as inflammation.
You can use it for dips, mayonnaise or vinaigrette. Hemp oil is one of nature’s most powerful foods.
It is a high source of vitamin E, amino acids and fatty acids, and also rich in antioxidants.
If you check several of the skincare products that are sold on the market you will see that they contain this oil in their composition because it helps to slow down the skin’s aging process.
