The History of Hemp

Hemp has a very unique history that we cannot ignore.  Hemp has and is one of the most valuable commodities to mankind.  Here are several of the most interesting historical facts about Hemp

The first American Flag was made from Hemp

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew Hemp

Ben Franklin made Hemp paper

The Declaration of Independence was drafted on Hemp

Hemp was used as a rope for ships, and it was a required crop in the American colonies
Hemp has been grown for the last 12,000 years

What is Hemp-Derived CBD?

CBD comes from industrial hemp plants.  Cannabidiol (CBD), a constituent that naturally occurs in industrial Hemp, is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant.  The purest oil is CO2 extracted which results in a solvent free extract.

What is it used for Today?

There are several health benefits associated with Hemp.

  1. Hemp Oil Can Help Prevent Varicose Veins:Like other compounds high in omega-3s, hemp oil can thin your blood, reducing blood clots and varicose veins.
  2. Hemp Oil Helps Prevent Demyelination Of Nervous System: Essential fatty acids are necessary for a healthy cell membrane structure. They also prevent the demyelination, the destruction of the myelin sheath (a membrane that protects the nerve cells).
  3. Hemp Oil Regenerates and Energizes The Skin’s Protective Layer: Due to its high content of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, hemp oil has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer. It is especially useful for dry, tired or dehydrated skin and nails. It increases the skin elasticity and water retention capacity in tissues. Pure hemp oil can be used to treat dry hair and is often included in hair conditioners.
  4. Hemp Oil Can Be Good For Diabetics: Due to its low carbohydrate and sugar content, hemp oil is can be a great food additive for diabetics. The nutrients present in it can help moderate blood sugar levels
  5. Hemp Oil Helps Lower Cholesterol: The only vegetable oil to contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (3:1), hemp oil can help lower cholesterol levels by accelerating metabolic processes. With a faster metabolism, fats burn at a quicker rate and are not deposited on the artery walls.
  6. Hemp Oil Can Help Prevent Psoriasis: Psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acids in the body. The fatty acids present in hemp oil help improve skin oxygenation and hydration.
  7. Hemp Oil is Great for Vegetarians: Getting the right balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can be tricky for vegetarians and vegans. Hemp oil has the optimal ratio of these acids.
  8. Hemp Oil Can Boost Your Immunity: Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids also improve immunity and regulate intestinal flora, thus building a natural barrier against microbes and increasing the resilience of the body.
  9. Hemp Oil Helps Maintain a Hormonal Balance: Hemp is the only edible seed that contains gamma-linolenic acid, which is eventually converted to the protective hormone prostaglandin PGE1 that regulates the hormonal balance and supports menopausal health.

There is a difference in which Hemp Oil you buy

Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.  A Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits.

Is this legal?

Under the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD derived from Hemp Seed Oil that has less than 0.3% THC by dry weight is federally legal.

 

HempWorx products are made from industrial hemp plants grown on Kentucky farms. Cannabidiol (CBD), a constituent that naturally occurs in industrial Hemp, is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. Our oil is CO2 extracted resulting in a solvent free, pure extract.

    Great review. I have heard and read a lot of really good things about CBD oil. My brother is diabetic and has had a lot of pain. He has been taking CBD oil for a while and he swears by it. No more diabetic related pain. I am type-2 diabetic as well so I am seriously considering giving it a try.
    Thanks for this useful information.

    Angela,

    Thanks for the information and background on hemp. Most people are very uneducated on the topic so it is great to learn more so I can have the information and pass it on. 🙂

      Jessica,

    Just what I needed to know Angela. I am quite clueless with the origins of hemp and glad to come across some encouraging information about it. In fact, I’ve been considering to use some of the product range for my personal condition such as body pain and insomnia.

    Just a side question – do I need to watch out for any side effect when using CBD based cream? Thank you.

    • Angela

      Hello Cathy,

      I am excited about your consideration in using the product.  I think you will be extremely happy with the results!  There aren’t any side effects that I know of however, I know everyone is different.  I would encourage you to read the label and make sure there is no ingredient included that you personally can’t tolerate.   If you go to this website (http://www.hempworx.com/Abrand), under the documentation tab, it will show you all of the documentation where the product has been tested.  Also under the products tab you can actually view the labels of each product for the other ingredients outside of CBD.  Great question!  Let me know how it works for you!

    Great detailed review. I haven’t tried this product but as I see it has many health benefits. I’m just wondering if there are any reported negative effects of using this? allergic reactions? Thanks for sharing this information.

    • Angela

      Hey Nathan,
      I can’t say that no one has ever had an allergic reaction just as everyone has different responses to food, plants, animals, and medications. However, there aren’t any side effects that I know. I would encourage you to read the label and make sure there is no ingredient included that you personally can’t tolerate. If you go to this website (http://www.hempworx.com/Abrand), under the documentation tab, it will show you all of the documentation where the product has been tested. Also under the products tab you can actually view the labels of each product for the other ingredients outside of CBD. I would be interested to know if you decide to try it!
