With the “green rush,” some brands are jumping on the chance to sell their cannabis-infused beauty products but mixing the terms CBD and Hempseed up — intentionally or not. But what are the main myths and truths about Hempseed oil?
MYTH: Hempseed oil will make you high.
TRUTH: Hempseed oil is produced from the Cannabis Sativa plant but it contains only traces of THC, so it’s not possible to get high from it. The oil is legally used in large quantity for cosmetics, and nutritional supplementation.
MYTH: Hempseed oil has no real skin benefits.
TRUTH: Considered as the ’driest’ vegetable oil, it is high in omega acids 3, 6, and 9, all of which help hydrate the skin without clogging your pores. It helps lower inflammation and may even modulate skin oil production.
