My blog is dedicated to the exploration of industrial hemp in America including the rich history of all forms of cannabis, the evolving law and politics of hemp and marijuana, the many products made from cannabis and the capacity, real or imagined, of hemp to re-industrialize rural America and revitalize the American family farm.
Hemp oil is a product of the plant called “Cannabis sativa”. Although it is the same plant from which marijuana, cannabis oil and other products are made, the plant has many subparts from which these products are being made.
Hemp oil is defined as any product from the plant “Cannabis Sativa” with a low enough concentration of THC. THC is the biochemical substance responsible for the mind-altering “high” that most people associate with consuming marijuana.
Hemp oil has very low amounts of THC (under 0.03%) – that is why hemp oil is legal and safe to use, as it will not trigger any psychoactive effects on the user.
How Can Hemp Oil Help With Chronic Pain?
There are two types of hemp oil when we are discussing health benefits – there is the nutritional, food-like hemp seed oil which is basically the oil made from hemp seeds. Due to the fact that hemp seeds are super-foods in themselves, the seed oil produced from them will also provide most of their benefits.
However, this product is not created in mind to pack the biggest concentration of CBD, the “health-inducing” cannabinoids. CBD is a biochemical substance present in hemp which is responsible for improving the health and wellness of its users.
You probably heard about many folk stories of people healing themselves of anxiety, depression, cancer, OCD and many other “incurable” diseases by using “marijuana”. Well, you do not have to do something illegal in order to enjoy the same benefits.
Actually, there are more and more studies confirming that CBD, the biochemical substance present in hemp seed oil (only in trace amounts) and especially in CBD hemp oils, is one of the healthiest compounds known to the human body.
That is why it would be wise to purchase a specialized CBD hemp oil, which contains a higher concentration of CBD cannabinoids (those healthy biochemical substances) rather than a “normal” dose present in the nutritious, food-like hemp seed oil.
CBD oil and medicinal grade hemp oil can be both ingested and used topically. Studies are now being done on unraveling exactly how these miracle compounds work in reducing pain and lowering inflammation, especially due to the fact that it seems to work where even the most hardcore pain medication would not work.
Edible forms can provide beneficial nutrition to an arthritis sufferer, while topical solutions containing hemp oil can be especially soothing and healing.
Hemp oil is becoming a favorite product among massage therapists and other alternative healthcare professionals, such as acupuncture and magnetic therapy.
CBD Hemp Oil Is Effective For Many Chronic Health Issues
As you could see, inflammation can be easily treated with CBD hemp oil. However, if you dig deeper, you realize that chronic inflammation is the root cause of most chronic health issues plaguing the modern world today.
This means that not only arthritis can be effectively treated with CBD hemp oil… but also cancer, diabetes, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, OCD, alcoholism and most neurological disorders. Pain, spasms and seizures as well as many other unpleasant symptoms can be alleviated using CBD hemp oil, thanks to its healing cannabinoid compounds.
