What is hemp seed oil?
Hemp oil or hemp seed oil is extracted from the hemp plant. A form of the cannabis sativa plant, hemp, is typically grown for industrial purposes. Similar to other oils like olive or coconut, hemp oil is procured by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. The hemp plant has low levels of cannabinoids, including the two most common ones: CBD and THC.
Is it legal in Canada?
Yes. In the late 80s and 90s, interest grew in hemp cultivation, especially in the agricultural and industrial sectors. The research revealed that it could be produced separately from marijuana. So Health Canada greenlit the opportunity to grow industrial hemp but in a controlled fashion. Commercial cultivation and production of industrial hemp was legalized in Canada in 1998. Licensing restrictions in Canada also meant that hemp products have THC contents lower than 0.3 per cent, which is negligible. Hemp also contains tissues rich in CBD. Still, because it is non-narcotic in nature, hemp growers can legally extract the oil.
What are the benefits of hemp oil?
Hemp oil is known to have high levels of vitamins E, B, B1, and B2 as well as potassium, magnesium and fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6. Not to mention the abundance of proteins and antioxidants, which makes it a must-have ingredient in shampoos, lotions and other beauty products. While fatty acids help reduce signs of ageing, they also act as excellent moisturizers that help with maintaining skin elasticity. Cosmeticians and wellness experts often recommend hemp oil or hemp oil-infused products to keep your skin, nails and hair healthy and hydrated.
And it's great for sex!
The daily grind of our oh-so-busy lives, coupled with toxins that are released in the environment, definitely take a toll on our bodies. Called dioxins, they disrupt the hormonal make-up of the body, which in turn can cause a lot of slips in the bedroom. Hemp can help!
