- Hemp is great for your skin
Full of vitamins, amino acids, and fatty acids; you know that essential fatty acids, like omega-3 and omega-6, are good for the body. But they’re also great for your skin because they help give the skin a supple appearance.
- Hemp is an anti-inflammatory
Hemp and CBD are shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, adding hemp to your diet and using it topically, like through a CBD-rich hemp cream, has therapeutic potential for managing inflammation-related discomforts.
- Hemp can help manage PMS
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) can cause physical and emotional discomfort during your monthly cycle. One of the causes of PMS is a hormonal imbalance that leads to a lack of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) in the body. Hempseed oil contains GLA and essential fatty acids, which have been shown to help alleviate the symptoms of PMS by bringing hormone levels back into balance.
- Antimicrobial and UV resistance
Not only is hemp naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and rotting, new studies are showing that hemp can offset the danger of antibiotic resistance on many levels. Hemp seeds even have all of the essential amino acids that the body needs to resist illness.
