Hemp is a member of the Cannabis Sativa species of plant. You may have heard this plant referred to as marijuana, but this is really a different variety of Cannabis sativa.
Hemp seed oil is a clear green oil made by cold-pressing hemp seeds. It’s different from cannabidiol (CBD) which is an extract produced from hemp flowers and leaves. THC and CBD are some of the most common compounds found in the Hemp, which are also one of the active ingredients of medical cannabis.
As the world is changing, becoming more "green", and more health consensus, hemp oil has thus seen a surge in demand in the present times. In many everyday products such as, foods, clothing, home cleaning products, creams, ointments for sickness and even hair products.
There are many benefits to using Hemp oil like high nutritional value, combating inflammation to the scalp, improves heart health, promotes health to the brain, helps maintain healthy weight, benefits the digestive system, and clears the skin.
When it comes to your hair, hemp oil is a great and safe alternative for the person who has sensitivities or if you want to follow more natural treatments, hemp oils may be what you are just looking for. With regular use of hemp seed oil for hair, whether applied topically or taken as a supplement, will moisturize the hair, stimulates hair growth and strengthen the hair.
Hemp Oil for the Scalp
It is known that using CBD for inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, cannabinoid therapies would assist for psoriasis. The topical application of hemp seed oil strengthens the skin and makes it more resistant to infections, which could help improve scalp health. Many people assume that dandruff and other scalp issues are just a dry skin problem, but in reality, they can be caused by a wide range of issues like dermatitis, eczema, or a fungal infection.

Whatever the choice, hemp oil products provide moisture. In order to have the healthiest hair possible your hair needs to have the right amount of moisture to keep its lush and full look. This is always a problem in the drier and colder parts of the year when your hair is more likely to dry out and become brittle. Hemp oil for hair will prevent loss of water and at the same time provide moisture for your hair and scalp. Added to that it’s easily absorbed by your hair and scalp so you’re not left with a mess of sticky hair.
