What is hemp oil?

If you’re wondering “what is hemp oil?”, or if you’ve heard of it but would like to know more about it then look no further.

To begin with, hemp oil comes from the cannabis plant, which has been cultivated by humans and used for its benefits to a wide variety of industries since ancient times. According to the study Cannabis sativa: The Plant of the Thousand and One Molecules published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Frontiers in Plant Science, hemp “has been used in folk medicine and as a source of textile fibre since the dawn of time”.

There are two main species of the plant containing a variety of chemicals known as cannabinoids. Cannabis is known for its psychoactive effect on humans, which can be attributed to tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. On the other hand, hemp plants contain little THC and large quantities of cannabidiol (CBD), which is not psychoactive.

Hemp has traditionally been grown for the utility of its strong fibres for use in the textile industry and is also used to extract hemp oil containing high levels of CBD. Hemp used for industrial purposes must contain less than 0.3 percent of THC to be sold legally.

While it has only been FDA-approved for the treatment of certain epilepsy disorders, the CBD present in hemp oil has been studied in humans and animals for its potential to affect the body. RESET Balance is not intended to diagnose, cure, or treat any disease or disorder – but researchers in the CBD field have found exciting but inconclusive evidence that the way CBD from hemp oil interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system could alter the course of mental health, sleep, inflammation, and more.
