What is hemp oil? 

Hemp oil is oil that has been pressed from hemp seed. Refined hemp oil is often used in body care products, whereas industrial hemp oil is often used in lubricants and paint. Hemp seed oil is becoming more and more popular for cooking due to its high nutritional value and may contain Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids. 

What is the difference between hemp oil and hemp extract? 

Hemp extract may contain cannabinoids and plant compounds that interact with our endocannabinoid system. This can have an impact on our brain, immune, and hormone function, and can modulate how our bodies respond to stress. 

Does it contain marijuana? 

Hemp and marijuana both come from the same plant, Cannabis sativa. Marijuana has been bred to concentrate high levels of tetrahydrocannabinoid (THC), or the compound that causes psychoactive effects. Hemp, on the other hand, contains less than 0.3% of THC. Hemp is primarily used in clothing, paper, brio-plastics, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and food. 

What does hemp oil do? 

Hemp oil may contain vital nutrients that our bodies need to thrive, such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. It can also increase the amount of “good fats” your heart needs to thrive, and may drastically cut the number of “bad fats” that can cause health issues. 

Many people say hemp oil leaves their skin looking healthier, while others swear it leaves their hair looking and feeling soft and shiny. 

If I use hemp oil, could I test positive for THC on a drug test? 

With the THC content of hemp oil sitting at less than 0.3% THC, it’s extremely unlikely for pure hemp oil to cause you to fail a drug test. 

What should I look for in a hemp oil? 

Look for an organic hemp oil that underwent CO2 extraction in order to receive the beneficial compounds without toxic chemical residues.
