Hemp and Skin

Hemp and Skin


Hemp oil contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds, such as omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and CBD, that may help reduce symptoms associated with inflammatory skin conditions, such as skin dryness, itchiness, and pain.


The 4 factors that directly contribute to acne are: excess oil production, pores becoming clogged by "sticky" skin cells, bacteria, and inflammation. Dryness can cause your skin to overproduce oil, which in turn, can stimulate acne. As well as being an anti-inflammatory, hemp oil can prevent dry skin without clogging pores, and stimulate healing processes that help with acne and acne scars. 


According to a 2015 journal article, hemp oil can treat and prevent the skin symptoms associated with aging. In addition to helping with acne, hemp also has anti-aging properties. Hemp oil can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of aging from developing. It contains compounds helping to firm skin, stimulate regeneration and increase collagen. All factors that help with skin aging. 

UV damage

Hemp oil contains Omega-6 and Omega-3 oils, antioxidants and other vitamins that help heal skin damaged by sun rays. Omega-6 oils protect against skin drying and thinning, and the vitamins promote collagen, decreased inflammation, and repairing tissue. 

Hemp is great for healing and rejuvenating skin and should definitely be added into your skincare routine.
