5 Surprising Uses for Hemp to Enhance Your Day

5 Surprising Uses for Hemp to Enhance Your Day

September 14, 2018 1 Comment

While so many people share the infamous impression that cannabis and all of its elements get you high, the compound Hemp doesn’t fit the stereotype.  It has gained its popular "buzz" for very different reasons.

I'll bet you are already curious about the compound Hemp (cannabidiol). You may know something about T H C but wonder how Hemp is different! Just like T H C (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD it is extracted from cannabis. But here's the fun part!  Cannabis indica, is the Latin name for Marijuana (the plant with high levels of T H C and low levels of CBD). Cannabis sativa, is the Latin name for Hemp, which is naturally high in CBD and low in THC. It is kind of like these two plants are cousins! Unlike THC, we have stressed that CBD is not psychoactive, which means it does not produce a mild altering state, or, simply put―it won’t get you high.

Because of its close relationship to Marijuana, CBD (which can be extracted from Hemp), remains greatly misunderstood. Today's scientists and medical doctors are researching many of its fascinating benefits. Here are some uses for CBD oil to help you choose whether it is for you!

1. Give Your Sore Feet Relief after a Long Day or a Challenging Workout!

    Your feet have taken you just about everywhere you have gone. If you don't realize how tender and sore they are, try giving yourself a little foot massage. See what I mean? You may want to try CBD oil as a healthy alternative to other pain oils or creams. Of course, it’s not just feet that might be tender and sore--CBD oil is known to be quite effective when it comes to relieving chronic pain and cramping in muscles and joints all over the body.

    2. Try It as an Acne Treatment

    If you’ve been treating acne for a long time and still nothing has worked, you might want to give CBD oil a try. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, studies show that CBD prevents the overproduction of the sebaceous glands that causes acne, making it a promising new treatment.

    3. Add Some Extra Hydration to Your Facial Routine

    Acne treatment is only the beginning of CBD oil uses for skincare. Dermatologists have shown that CBD oil contains antioxidants that improve hydration. This is one reason CBD has become an anti-aging ingredient in so many skin care products today.

    4. Fall in love with CBD Infused Smoothies

    How about a healthy, thirst-quenching smoothie with a secret ingredient? Carlene Thomas, a Registered Dietician Nutritionist, shared her Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie with CDB Oil recipe on her blog, OhCarlene, and it’s definitely worth the mention for both flavor and substance. Incorporating it into your wellness routine may be a great way to embrace preventative medicine on a daily basis. 

    5. Support for Neurological Conditions 

    Many clinical trials and medical doctors are beginning to show that an artisanal blend of CBD, terpenes, and a touch of THC, symptoms helps the body find balance and calm. Other benefits reported are reduced restlessness, anxiety, self injury, and aggressiveness toward others.

    Still Not Sure?

    While the research continues and your curiosity piques, there are too many surprising uses for this beautiful compound for most people to ignore. Whatever your pain or challenges are, you’ll never know until you try it for yourself. And if something completely natural, non-addictive, and non-mind altering can help others, maybe it’s time to give CBD oil a trial of your own!

    Soothe sore muscles and joints with our highly popular Muscle & Joint Salve, or deeply hydrate & nourish your skin with our Head to Toe Hemp Lotion.

    Great Stuff.. It seems, you have researched a lot before posting the blog. Thank you for sharing such a important information, as rarely people know this use of CBD. I know about CBD but not aware the CBD can be use in this way as well.
