Hemp seed oil is made from hemp, a cannabis plant like the drug marijuana but containing little to no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical that gets people “high.” Instead. hemp contains cannabidiol (CBD), that has been used to treat a variety of ailments from epilepsy (seizures) to anxiety. It is becoming more popular to also use the hemp seed oil for skin issues and even to help with stress and reduce inflammation. Hemp supplements can deliver CBD's potential benefits without psychoactive effects of THC.
In addition to CBD, Hemp oil contains large amounts of omega -6 and omega -3 fats, the "good fats", and contains all nine essential amino acids which your body uses to make proteins.
