Is hemp oil effective in treating skin conditions?
Manufacturers produce hemp seed oil by compressing hemp seeds rather than the leaves and flowers. Hemp seed oil does not contain any CBD, which is the main active component in full-spectrum hemp oils.
Technically, both types of hemp oil are cannabis products, as they both come from the C. sativa plant.
Does it work for skin?
1. Inflammatory skin conditions Hemp oil contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds, such as fatty acids, antioxidants, and CBD, that may help reduce symptoms associated with inflammatory skin conditions, such as skin dryness, itchiness, and pain. A 2014 review study concluded that applying hemp oil may benefit people with: eczema atopic dermatitis seborrheic dermatitis varicose eczema psoriasis lichen planus acne rosacea
2. UV damage and hyperpigmentation Hemp contains both α-linolenic acid and linoleic acid, which help repair UV skin damage by increasing the removal of melanin. Melanin is the name for a broad group of natural skin pigments that give the skin’s upper layer its color.
3. Acne and acne scars Hemp oil contains several compounds with oil-reducing, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that may help improve acne vulgaris.
