This controversial cannabis plant also has great health benefits! Yeah yeah, you already knew that!

This post is all about the legal and skin loving oil that's obtained from the Hemp seed!
Are Hemp and Marijuana the same thing?
While classified as the same type of plant, they are cared for and bred in a different type of manner - to produce a different type of substance. Bred for industrial use, hemp barely contains any of the active substance in marijuana - THC. It is bred to produce a strong stock so it's fiber can be used to produce sustainable materials. In simple terms, hemp is kinda like the older cousin of marijuana - similar genes, different care takers, & different styles of being brought up. They're still related by blood but only have to see each other at awkward family gatherings.
Now that we know a little more about hemp production, lets dive into why we need this beautiful green oil in our lives...
Why we should use Hemp Seed Oil
It's easy to be discouraged by the opinions of others when it comes to the benefits of this plant. However, described as a "dry oil", hemp seed oil is legal to use topically and even in pill form! So, why would you want to put hemp seed oil on your body? Well, this oil is truly unique and packed full of stuff your skin and body crave. Hemp Oil is rich in Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids - in fact, 80% of the oil pressed from the hemp seed are polyunsaturated fats! These fatty acids are essential for cell production and good overall skin health. They are even said to keep your skin looking and feeling youthful. Since these fatty acids are in the perfect ratio for skin absorption, your skin soaks hemp seed oil right up! This oil also contains gamma-linolenic acid or GMA. GMA has great anti-inflammatory properties - making it great for eczema or dermatitis.
