Hemp has become a popular skincare ingredient in recent years. For the uninitiated, Hemp is the non-intoxicating component and one of more than 100 identified cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Hemp is extracted as a powder and mixed with an oil. At Sugar & Kush, our Hemp is mixed with MCT coconut oil to enhance effectiveness. Some evidence suggests that Hemp oil can have a whole lot of benefits for the health of your skin and can be soothing to a variety of skin conditions.
But first, let’s clear up some confusion. Pure Hemp oil legally contains less than .003% THC — the compound responsible for the “high” that people may associate with cannabis — which means it’s non-psychoactive and won’t make you feel high. A reputable brand will provide lab reports from third-party testing to ensure the purity of their Hemp.
Instead, the “buzz” around Hemp is in its therapeutic uses. It has been known to provide relief from pain when applied to the skin — but there are so many skin-healing benefits to uncover.
Hemp is said to have anti-inflammatory properties — which means it can be helpful in reducing triggers of inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and even acne!
The antioxidant benefits of Hemp can help fight free radical damage and reduce the inflammation that causes fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and other signs of aging.
3. Soothing & Moisturizing
Hemp is rich in Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which makes it extremely moisturizing and soothing for dry skin while reducing the appearance of irritation. It can have normalizing and balancing effects that can help minimize skin’s sensitivity and reactivity.
4. Natural Humectant
Observed to be a natural humectant, Hemp tends to draw moisture out of the air and into your skin to keep it hydrated.
5. Can Control Oil Production
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory effects, Hemp can reduce inflammation on sebocytes, the skin cells that produce sebum, to help regulate and balance oil production.
