Everything You Need to Know About Hemp Oil

Basic Jane |

Hemp oil has been a topic of interest for many people in recent years, and for good reason. The potential benefits of hemp oil are vast and wide-ranging, from relieving pain and inflammation to reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation. With so much buzz around hemp oil, it’s important to understand the basics to determine if it’s right for you.

Hemp is a versatile plant used for various purposes throughout history, including its potential therapeutic properties. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore a wide range of hemp plant uses and review the extraction process, potential hemp oil benefits, and uses of hemp oil. 

So, let’s dive into the world of hemp oil and discover its potential for supporting your health and well-being.

What is Hemp Oil?

Hemp oil, different from hemp seed oil, is derived from the aerial parts of the hemp plant. Unlike hemp seed oil, which is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant, hemp oil is known for its potential health benefits due to its high concentration of certain compounds that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. That system is responsible for regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes, including pain, mood, appetite, and immune function.

Hemp oil is generally considered non-psychoactive and does not produce intoxicating effects, making it a safe option for many individuals.  However when purchasing hemp products, it is important to read the product packaging.  Products labeled as being “full spectrum” may contain trace amounts of psychoactive compounds.  Products labeled as “broad spectrum” or “isolate” do not.  Good manufactures will label their packaging to inform consumers.    

Hemp oil has many potential uses, including as a dietary supplement, skin and hair care product, and ingredient in various culinary applications. However, it’s important to note that hemp oil should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. 

As with any dietary supplement or natural remedy, it’s recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating hemp oil into your wellness routine, especially if you have any underlying health conditions or are taking medications.

Hemp Oil Extraction

The process of extracting hemp oil involves obtaining the beneficial compounds from the hemp plant and transforming them into an oil or salt form that can be used for various purposes. There are different methods of obtaining hemp oil and hemp extract, each with its own advantages and considerations.

Some of the methods include:

  • Cold pressing
  • Solvent extraction
  • Further refinement

It’s important to note that the extraction method can impact the quality and safety of hemp products. Some methods remediate or remove low level amounts of THC within hemp extracts while other processes may retain low levels of THC.  Reputable manufacturers will conduct third-party testing to ensure the purity and potency of their hemp oil products and report out the presence of any THC.  When choosing a hemp oil product, it’s important to look for information about the testing practices of the manufacturer to ensure you’re getting a high-quality product you desire.

Overall, hemp oil extraction is a crucial step in the production of hemp oil products, as it determines the quality, composition, and safety of the final product. Understanding the extraction methods used and choosing reputable manufacturers is essential in obtaining high-quality hemp products.

How to Use Hemp Oil

With its versatile applications, hemp oil can be used in various ways to suit individual preferences and needs. 

Here are a few ways it can be used:

  • Oral ingestion: One common way to use hemp oil is by taking it orally. Hemp oil is often available in the form of mints, capsules, softgels, or tinctures that can be ingested directly or added to food and beverages. 

When using hemp oil orally, it’s important to follow the dosing instructions provided by the manufacturer and start with a low dose to gauge your body’s response. Oral ingestion allows for easy and convenient use, making it a popular option for those looking to incorporate hemp oil into their daily routine.

  • Topical application: Hemp plant uses don’t just include oral ingestion; hemp oil can be applied topically to the skin. It can be found in various skincare products, such as lotions, creams, salves, and balms. When applying hemp oil topically, it’s typically used for localized pain relief or moisturizing properties. 

Simply apply a small amount of hemp oil or products containing hemp to the desired area and gently massage it into the skin. This can be particularly useful for addressing skin concerns such as dryness, irritation, and inflammation.

  • Transdermal patches: Hemp patches have become increasingly popular as an alternative form of pain relief in recent years. Hemp patches are easy to use and last for hours. This popularity is due in part to the growing interest in natural pain remedies and the increasing awareness of the potential risks and side effects associated with traditional pain relief medications. 
  • Personal care products: Hemp plant uses also include using the oil in a variety of personal care products, such as shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and even makeup. These products may utilize hemp oil’s moisturizing and nourishing properties for hair, skin, and other personal care needs. Always check the ingredient list and follow the instructions provided by the product manufacturer for proper use.
  • Customized use: Hemp oil can be versatile and customizable to suit individual preferences and needs. Some people may choose to blend hemp oil with other carrier oils or essential oils to create their own personalized formulations. However, it’s important to be mindful of the quality and purity of the hemp oil and any other ingredients used to ensure safe and effective use.
