PROPERTIES AND ADVANTAGES OF HEMP OIL
Research has revealed that it is high in essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and Omega-6),, “good” fats with oxidizing properties; it is soothing and rebalancing, rich in vitamin E, combats free radicals responsible for premature ageing. It is also rich in B vitamins (especially B1, B2, B6) which are important for the skin as they help us fight dermatitis, skin irritation and ageing, and are essential for hair care.
Cosmetology appreciates and is increasingly using cannabidiol (CBD) for its anti-inflammatory, anti-wrinkle and anti-acne properties. CBD is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid (nb: for this reason, it is difficult to refer to the current regulations, in some cases it is not mentioned because the same rules or regulations apply primarily to the most known and discussed cannabinoid: THC); due to its specific chemical form, it can bind to the endocannabinoid receptors of our skin.
This natural molecule is in fact “recognized” by the human body because it is completely chemically similar to the molecules we produce ourselves that interfere with or deactivate inflammation. This remarkable similarity allows us to have immediate benefits to our skin from the first application.
Numerous studies confirm that cannabidiol reduces keratinocyte (skin cell) turnover, inflammation and even sebum production. It is useful in the allergic phases and even in the fight against psoriasis. It has antioxidant, regenerating and energizing properties (wrinkles and nails appreciate its benefits). CBD is also a powerful anti-inflammatory and pain reliever; combats pain (arthritis, trauma, We would like to emphasize, however, that the synergy between cannabinoids and non-cannabinoid ingredients such as terpenes (essential ingredients in many plant oils and resins) increases the potential of hemp extracts. Terpenes also act on receptors and neurotransmitters in our body. For example, Cariofillene (or β-caryophyllene), which is present in cannabis in high concentrations, gives the plant a spicy flavor (in fact, it is also contained in black pepper) This terpene is considered by many scientists to be a phytocannabinoid because it binds selectively to the receptor CB2 (and therefore has no psychoactive properties as it is not related to CB1).
Its best-known effects are related to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, so they are useful in the fight against pain or infection. Many terpenes have synergistic relationships with cannabinoids, and their existence is increasingly being studied.
Called “phytocannabinoid-terpenoid synergism,” it increases the potential benefit of hemp-based extracts. It has already been proven that excellent results are obtained with pain, inflammation, fungal and bacterial infections.
Also terpeniagisce on receptors and neurotransmitters linking or dissolving in lipids or fats; They work by inhibiting or enhancing the functions of some of the most important molecules in our body that influence various metabolic processes.
In short, the benefits of hemp are best expressed by the whole plant, as it is the plant itself that acts on our body with different substances, at different levels and with less risk of intolerance.
