Hemp oil, sometimes also called CBD oil, is an oil that is known for its therapeutic effects. Scientific research about these effects is currently in full swing, but the oil has already demonstrated to be beneficial for many people, and in the case of many diseases such as: cancer, rheumatism, migraine, ADHD, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and acne. In this article we will provide more information about this fantastic product.
What is hemp oil?
Hemp oil is made from the hemp plant, which is a variation of the plant called cannabis. It contains many active ingredients, one of them being cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is known for its therapeutic effects, and is used for making a type of oil that is known as CBD oil. This oil contains a high concentration of CBD, and only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is also an active ingredient of cannabis, but has, apart from its medicinal effects, psychoactive effects as well. Hence, THC cannot be acquired legally in The Netherlands. Because the amount of THC in CBD oil is almost negligible, CBD oil is legal.
Hemp oil and hemp-seed oil: the differences
An Internet search will probably show websites providing information about hemp-seed oil. These terms—hemp-seed oil and hemp oil—are often used interchangeably. But they are different oils altogether: Hemp-seed oil contains a low percentage of THC, and does not contain any CBD. CBD oil also has a low THC content, but a high percentage of CBD. Hemp-seed oil, therefore, does not have any therapeutic effects. Instead, it contributes to a healthy lifestyle, because it contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as many essentials proteins. For these reasons, it is important to note that if you see hemp-seed oil in a health story, it is not the same product as hemp oil.
Medicinal hemp oil: the positive effects
Hemp oil, also called CBD oil, does not have any known side effects, which is one of CBD’s main advantages. This beneficial substance, CBD, has been analyzed in a number of studies, and its medicinal properties have been affirmed by science. But at this point, insufficient research has been produced to consider CBD a medicine officially. Let this be no reason not to give CBD a try! Indeed, on the Internet countless stories can be found of people with a variety of syndromes, who have tried everything available on medical prescription, but who did not get results. In those cases, medicinal hemp oil could be the solution. Does this mean CBD is a panacea? Not necessarily for everyone. But it has been proven to work wonders in relieving pain for many people. And even in the off chance it turns out not to have effects, it does not hurt either: this natural substance can be taken by anyone without worries, as it has no known side effects.
Hemp oil and pain relief
CBD has many therapeutic effects. Hence, it can be used in the treatment of many different syndromes. Below we have highlighted some of them. An Internet search will demonstrate that there are numerous other illnesses for which the use of CBD can be beneficial.
- Parkinson’s Disease
Hemp oil experiences
The experience of many CBD users has been documented on the Internet. They often indicate that they had tried everything, but that nothing had helped. Ordering hemp oil completely turned their lives around in the most positive of ways!
Some examples: Bram has epilepsy and has had a period with many severe epileptic shocks. Since he started using hemp oil his mind has calmed down, and he has fewer attacks than he had before: the lower degree of stress in his mind prevents the epileptic attack from happening.
Vital Hids is a young man with Crone disease. It was a huge limiting factor in his life, because he had to use the bathroom very frequently, until he learned about hemp oil. Already a week later, he clearly noticed the results. Most importantly, he does not have to use the bathroom as often anymore. He also has more energy and feels less depressed. He experiences no side effects of the hemp oil.
Many people also indicate that the CBD oil has helped them with their psoriasis or arthrosis. In those cases, the pain is relieved, and the itches and scabs disappear. Here, you can read a number of those experiences of people who used CBD oil.
How to dose and use hemp oil
The required dose of hemp oil differs per person. Where one might profit from one drop a day, another will only feel the effects after ten daily drops. We advise to use the included prescription. And if the effects that are experienced are insufficient, the dose can be increased until the effects are noticed. In order to get a better effect, it can also be helpful to purchase a type of hemp oil with a higher CBD percentage.
The oil can be taken in several ways. Usually, it is taken by mouth undiluted, and placed under the tongue. Some people dislike the slightly bitter taste, in which case the oil can be mixed with food or beverage. Note that, as you might have seen in our webshop, CBD can also be purchased in the form of CBD paste, e-liquid, hemp-oil capsules, soap and crème. The paste is used in the same way as the oil. The capsules are ideal for those who are on the road often, or for those who are traveling. The CBD e-liquid can be used in e-cigarettes—vaporizing causes the CBD to be absorbed by the body quickly. Finally, the crème and soap are ideal for skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis.
Is hemp oil the same as cannabis oil?
No, definitely not! Because there are only trace amounts of THC in hemp oil, it is legally available in The Netherlands. Cannabis oil, which contains more THC, is illegal.
