Hemp oil can refer to a full-spectrum oil from the Cannabis sativa plant or

hemp seed oil, which is oil that comes from just the seeds of the hemp plant.

There is very little risk of intoxication from hemp oil as all forms of hemp

oil come from food-grain strains of hemp. The authors of a study in the journal

Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research Trusted Source note that food-grain strains

of hemp must contain less than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is

the compound that causes the so-called “high” of marijuana. Hemp oil is not the

same as cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The production of CBD oil uses the stalks,

leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant, which contain a higher concentration of

CBD, another potentially beneficial compound in the plant. Hemp seed oil comes

from the small seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. The seeds do not contain the

same levels of compounds as the plant itself, but they still have a rich

profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds.

Full-spectrum hemp oil that also contains plant matter may add other effective

compounds, which may help with certain health issues, such as inflammation.

Skin health: The oil from the hemp seed is highly nutritious and may be

especially helpful for the skin. The vitamins and fatty acids in this oil may

help keep the skin healthy and prevent breakouts. A 2014 study looking at the

lipid profile of hemp seed oil found that it is rich in healthful oils and

fatty acids. The abundance of fatty acids may make the oil an excellent choice

for nourishing the skin and protecting it from inflammation, oxidation, and

other causes of aging. The authors of a 2014 reviewTrusted Source note that the

topical application of hemp seed oil strengthens the skin and makes it better

able to resist infection. The authors also suggest that hemp seed oil may be a

helpful treatment for a range of skin issues, including: eczema, dermatitis,

psoriasis, varicose eczema lichen planus (an i…
