Unsurprisingly hemp seed oil shares many of the same benefits as hemp seeds when ingested. I use hemp seed oil for salad dressing, in juices and recently as my daily face moisturiser and cleanser. It is however not recommended for frying due to its low smoking point
On the skin hemp seed oil is a hydrating natural moisturiser which acts as barrier and prevents moisture loss in the skin. It is rich in Vitamin D which is necessary for calcium absorption; one of the factors in helping to achieve smooth, soft and hydrated skin.
It is a non-comedogenic oil, meaning it will not clog your pours or leave your skin feeling greasy like other oils. It improves the composition of epidural lipids and overall health of the skin, which is responsible for the oils anti-aging benefits.
Due to the omega 3-6 balance hemp seed oil may also help to alleviate dermatitis, eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions.
If you need a new cleanser and moisturiser (yes dudes, we also need to do this) give hemp seed oil a try. I won't go back to anything else now.
I'll go into the benefits of CBD oil another time; this is a really interesting one.
