While many people only associate the word "hemp" with Cannabis (or "weed"), hemp seed oils and butters do not contain any THC, the ingredient that creates the "high", so it is perfectly safe to use. In addition, there has never been any documented cases of anyone having any kind of allergic reaction to hemp seeds.
Hemp seeds are rich in protein and and contain all twenty-one known amino acids, including nine essential ones that adult bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities and ratios to meet the body’s needs, so adding hemp seeds to your salads or meals is a great way to get all these benefits. Hemp seeds are also very beneficial for heart and digestive health and some studies have shown it to help in relieving rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
Using hemp seed oil or butter on your skin truly helps improve dry, red, flaking skin. The oil in hemp seeds penetrated the inner layers of the skin and promotes healthy cell growth – just what is needed for smooth, soft skin. In fact, researchers studying the effects of hemp seed oil on atopic dermatitis, or eczema, a skin condition that causes inflammation and dry skin, found that patients’ symptoms improved with the use of the oil or butter.
