Is hemp seed oil legal?

Hemp is usually associated with marijuana. Although they’re both a type of cannabis plant, their uses and effects are very different. If you’re wondering whether hemp seed oil lotion can create psychoactive effects, the answer is no.

THC is the compound that creates psychoactive effects in the brain. Hemp contains less than 0.3 percent THC, as opposed to marijuana, which can have anywhere from 5 to 35 percent THC.

Hemp contains more CBD, the cannabis compound which is used for anti-anxiety, inflammation and pain-relieving purposes; therefore, you can feel free to use as much Hempz lotion as you want. It won’t do anything except make your skin look and feel great.

Benefits of hemp seed oil lotions

Why use hemp seed oil for your skin? It turns out that 10,000 years of history aren’t wrong. Hemp seed oil offers the following benefits:

  • High in key vitamins: Hemp contains three key vitamins that are essential for skin health. B vitamins can make the outer epidermis stronger, which helps reduce signs of aging. They also break down nutrition and deliver it to the appropriate parts of your body, including your skin. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, which can improve collagen production, moisture and hydration. Finally, Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help prevent wrinkles.
  • High in important minerals: Hemp seed oil is also a great source of iron, potassium and zinc. Iron reduces paleness and makes your skin glow. Potassium helps your skin retain moisture. Zinc has antioxidant properties to help your skin heal and regenerate.
  • Good source of fatty acids: Omega-3s aren’t just for your foods. Get a hefty dose of these anti-inflammatories in hemp seed oil. Bonus: They help control oil production, so you’ll stay moisturized without clogging your pores.
  • Renewable and sustainable: Finally, hemp is a renewable and sustainable plant, which means you can use as much as you want without harming the planet.
