What Is Hemp Oil?
For many people, hemp is considered a medicinal botanical. It contains chemical compounds that may have health and wellness benefits in addition to high omega-6 and omega-3 fat concentrations. Hemp oil is extracted from the hemp plant, while hemp seed oil is made from hemp seeds rather than the entire plant.
While several potentially beneficial compounds are found in hemp oil, some of the most helpful substances in the oil are fats. Omega-3 and omega-6 are two forms of unsaturated or "good fats" that the body cannot make on its own. Since the human body cannot manufacture these fats, it is essential to consume them. Omega-3 fats are vital parts of cell membranes and may help prevent heart disease, stroke, and eczema. They may also support mental health. Omega-6 fats help provide energy and may play a role in supporting a healthy immune system.
What Is Hemp Oil Used For?
How can you use hemp oil? Some people use hemp seed oil as a cooking oil. It imparts a warm and nutty flavor to foods. However, hemp seed oil has a low smoke point at only 325 degrees. With such a low smoke point, it is not an oil you want to use in high-heat cooking or searing. The rich flavor of hemp oil makes it a great finishing oil drizzled on top of hummus or roasted vegetables. It is also a flavorful medium for making salad dressings, sauces, or pesto.
Due to its perceived medicinal properties, hemp oil can be used topically and in skin care products. Hemp oil is easily absorbed into the skin and helps prevent moisture loss. It may also help balance oily skin without clogging the pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Due to its moisturizing properties, hemp oil may also help relieve the pain and itching associated with psoriasis, dermatitis, and other skin conditions when applied topically. People also apply the oil to their hair and nails, claiming hemp oil increases shine and may make hair and nails stronger.
Hemp oil is also a popular additive in skin care products like lotions, balms, and lip conditioners. There is even some indication from studies that hemp oil is a mild antibacterial agent. It may inhibit the activity of certain bacteria that cause dangerous skin infections.
