Hemp and Your Skin
Hemp Oil is a unique oil loaded with Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) . When applied to the skin it provides moisture and promotes soft, radiant looking skin. Hemp oil may well improve the appearance or the feel of your skin, particularly if you have “problem” skin. US Hemp Oil’s Christopher J Boucher recommends supplementing one’s diet with 2 teaspoons per day of hemp oil – mix in with your salad, on a baked potato, etc. This program compliments the topical application. Chris would point us to this website for additional hemp and skin care tips: http://www.allgreenrx.com/hempseedoil
CBD or Cannabidiol is a natural constituent of the hemp plant that has shown significant health and wellness benefits – CBD promotes and supports the dietary and nutritional health of aging bodies (US Government patent # 6,630,507).
The endocannabinoid system within the human body is one of science’s newest and most exciting discoveries. Here there are two receptor sites on cells of the brain, internal organs and digestive tract (CB-1 and CB-2) that have been shown to be the largest neuro-transmitter system with the entire human body. This neuro-transmitter system regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping and even cognitive function. Phyto-cannabinoids or plant based cannabinoids, such as CBD can assist the body’s health and wellness.
Our human bodies contain a newly discovered endocannabinoid system where we are programmed to accept these extracts from the industrial hemp plant. The cannabinoids extracted from the industrial hemp plant come in various forms, the most abundant is known as cannabidiol, or CBD. Interestingly enough endocannabinoids are found in human breast milk and are vital for proper human development (source: http://www.naturalnews.com/036526_cannabinoids_breast_milk_THC.html). Plant based cannabinoids, known as phyto-cannabinoids carry virtually identical effects to our own, human cannabinoids that are produced by the human body. You can supplement your dietary needs with CBD (http://www.sci.sdsu.edu/classes/psychology/psy760/readings/Fride.pdf). http://csglobe.com/high-on-health-cannabinoids-in-the-food-supply/.
