Naturally Occurring CBD
When it comes to industrial hemp, America sadly lags the rest of the industrialized world. Other than for a brief period of time during World War II, hemp has not been grown in America since the 1930’s http://www.thehia.org/facts.html .
From hemp, a naturally occurring substance known as cannabinoids can be extracted. In certain cultivars of hemp, a particularly high portion of a special cannabinoid, known as cannabidiol (CBD) can be found (http://www.druglibrary.net/schaffer/hemp/indust/PHARMAfiber.html).
This CBD is now available in select nutritional products that are available to consumers for health and wellness benefits. Cannabidiol, CBD supports the nutritional and dietary health of aging bodies (US Government Patent # 6,630,507).
Cannabinoids are extracts derived from the industrial hemp plant and cannabidiol or CBD as it is known, is the most abundant cannabinoid that is so extracted. The human body will produce its own natural cannabinoids when undertaking extreme exercise. Our CBD infused products, derived from the natural industrial hemp plant can help maintain or promote the nutritional and dietary health to assist aging bodies.
Hemp Seed Oil Topical Benefits
Hemp Seed Oil contains many beneficial nutritive items that assist with problem skin. Some of these items include: Vitamin E, Chlorophyll, Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids, GLA, phytosterols, phosspholipids, carotenes, calcium, magnesium, potassium and antioxidants. Hemp oil is non-greasy, absorbs readily into the skin’s pores and carries moisturizing benefits for the skin. In addition to topical application hemp oil taken internally compliments an overall skin care regimen. US Hemp Oil’s Chris Boucher recommends taking 2 teaspoons daily – mixing in protein shakes or use on salads. Combined with the topical application – many with problem skin have seen results in an improved appearance.
Hemp Seed Oil replenishes our EFA's (essential fatty acids), which helps our skin hold moisture, making it a natural humectant. The effectiveness of our barrier function is what determines the moisture level of our skin, thus the softness and smoothness. EFA's specifically Omega 6, Omega 3 and Omega 9 preserve this barrier.
