Hemp Oil

Recently, medical use of cbd oil has been legalized in Iowa and many other states. Now we hear about it and see it everywhere, including hemp oil. The product’ s popularity has piqued my interest, thus resulting me to conduct my own research. I discovered that hemp oil offers many wonderful benefits that have me even more excited about the potential for this product!

So what exactly is the difference between cannabis oil and hemp oil? Simply put, cannabis oil contains THC (which is the part of the plant that makes you feel “high”). Hemp oil is like a cousin to cannabis and contains very small amounts of THC, under .3%.

Now that we know what hemp oil is, what does it help with? The research is so broad in this area right now, because it looks like it can help with everything. The biggest indicators though, are anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-cancer, anti-anxiety properties as well reducing seizures in epileptics. It has also been a form of treatment linked with: Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and other autoimmune diseases. 

On a personal note, my sister began taking hemp oil in November. Since then she went from daily headache/migraines to zero after one month’s use. Additionally, her overall chronic back pain has decreased.
