You’ve probably heard of hemp oils which have become a trending topic in the medical community and even on the social media. Wondering what’s so special about them and why they’re generating a buzz? Here’s a quick rundown of the top 10 reasons why hemp oils are becoming popular and why you should give them a try.
Hemp oils are legal
Unlike marijuana that’s only legal in a few states in America, hemp oils are legal in all 50 states of America. You don’t have to worry about getting a medical marijuana card or moving out of a state where it’s illegal because hemp is grown and sold all across America.
Won’t get you high
Want to enjoy the medical benefits of marijuana without getting high? Hemp oils provide that opportunity as they have low levels of THC which is the compound that causes the psychoactive effects. Hemp oils usually have less than 0.3 percent of THC, making them safe for anyone to give it a try at any time.
Naturally occurring in your body
Humans (and other mammals) have an endocannabinoid system whose sole purpose is to regulate vital functions in the body like sleep, immune functions, memory, digestion and many more. This makes it easy for hemp oils to interact with the ECS and stimulate it to produce the effects necessary for treatment of a condition.
Impossible to fatally overdose
Although hemp oils offer several dosage options, it’s impossible to overdose as no fatal effects have ever been reported. In other words, while there are effects of using more than your proper dosage, there no cases that suggest that it can lead to death.
Doesn’t show up on drug tests
Many athletes suffer from soreness and inflammation use hemp oils because they’re unlikely to show up on drug tests. The reason is that hemp oils contain less than 0.3% which can be hard to detect even with regular use.
Hemp oils are often recommended to people suffering from chronic pain and inflammation. When consumed, the painkilling properties interact with the brain to numb the vanilloid receptors which controls pain and swelling. This prevents the receptors from sending pain signals to your body while also providing anti-inflammatory benefits.
Maintains healthy appetite
Patients suffering from cancer or who are recovering from other illnesses tend to lose their appetite and often need a stimulated digestive system to eat. Studies have shown that hemp oils are effective against loss of appetite and can help encourage hunger.
Many people with insomnia report that they were able to sleep after taking a dose of hemp oil. Unlike most sleeping pills sold over the counter, hemp oil doesn’t just help you fall asleep; it also combats insomnia at the source by relaxing the body and mind so you can have a good night’s sleep.
Relieves anxiety and stress
Suffering from anxiety and stress? Studies have shown that hemp oils have antidepressant properties that can help quieten the mind by calming the body’s nervous system when it’s working too hard. It also helps to relax your muscles and improve your sense of wellbeing.
Beneficial to both sick and healthy people
Although hemp oil is often recommended for its potency against a range of conditions and symptoms, you can also consume it as it can help boost your health and reduce the risk of cancer, metabolic disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.
