The Potential Health Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp seed oil has gotten more and more attention in the news recently as the scope of research has grown about cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is derived from cannabis plants; specifically hemp, in the case of our products. Most people have heard of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient of marijuana that is responsible for the psychoactive effects. CBD, in contrast, doesn’t get you high, but may be effective for addressing a variety of health concerns. While there is more research to be done to prove its efficacy for treating many ailments, the studies that have been conducted are extremely promising.

Anti-Inflammatory/Pain Relief Properties

CBD may be the ultimate solution for those who suffer from chronic pain. A recent study from the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD was effective at reducing inflammation and pain in mice.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy and CBD have been extensively studied, and CBD has proven to offer very promising effects on people who experience seizures. In fact, the FDA recently recommended approval of a CBD prescription drug for the treatment of certain rare forms of epilepsy.

Anxiety

People with anxiety often don’t react well to marijuana, as THC can cause paranoia and other anxiety symptoms. CBD, on the other hand, has shown to be effective at reducing anxiety.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system attacks pancreas cells, causing inflammation. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties might ease the inflammation in the pancreas, which indicates that it could eventually serve as a treatment for diabetes.

This is merely a drop in the bucket of the full ocean of health benefits CBD may offer. With all this in mind, it’s in your best interest to give a full-spectrum extract a try, which has shown to be even more effective than CBD-only extracts. Shop In-N-Out Hemp Production for hemp seed oil today!
