5 Reasons You Might Need CBD & Hemp Seed Oil

5 Reasons You Might Need CBD & Hemp Seed Oil

You‘ve heard it all before: CBD fixes everything, THC might be good for you, the paleo diet is out, keto is all the rage and vegan is going mainstream… but who do you believe and where does it end? While Hemp and CBD can be incredibly beneficial to a wide range of different conditions, getting a grasp on it is bewildering. This article aims to debunk some of the myths around our favourite plant-based oil and CBD while presenting real scientific evidence to ensure you understand the full benefits of each of these beautiful substances and how therapeutically similar they are.


1. Skin Conditions

The most talked about similarities between hemp oil and CBD are their benefits towards different skin conditions. Hemp can help improve blood levels of fatty acids and right out of the box has an optimal ratio of 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3. This study shows how hemp seed oil can reduce dryness and itchiness in humans that have dermatitis and many other studies demonstrate that it can help a wide range of conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. 

CBD has a positive effect on the skin and can help reduce skin diseases, as can both CBD and CBG – very important to help counteract skin diseases such as melanoma (a massive problem in sunshine-rich countries like Australia).


2. Menopause 

A relatively well-known fact is that hemp seeds contain Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which produce prostaglandin E. Because of the high levels of GLA in hemp seeds several studies have shown they may help reduce various symptoms of menopause including helping reduce bone density. Additionally, GLA could reduce inflammation and regulate hormone imbalances that are usually associated with menopause.

Now, a little-known fact about CBD is that it can help with a chronic symptom of menopause - bone density loss. Bone density naturally starts to decrease during menopause and CBD does interact with a cannabinoid receptor, which can play a role in bone density loss. 

Another study observed a combination of cannabinoids, including CBD, accelerated the rate of bone healing and CBD was shown to strengthen collagen tissues, helping to reduce bone density loss.


3. PMS

A vast number of women suffer from physical or emotional symptoms caused by premenstrual syndrome or better known as PMS. The majority of these symptoms have been linked to a sensitivity of the hormone prolactin. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) as we know is found in hemp seeds, and produces a naturally occurring prostaglandin E1, reduces the effects of prolactin. A study has shown taking 210mg of GLA per day in a total of 1 gram of essential fatty acids resulted in a significant decrease in symptoms. 

CBD is also very well known for its relaxing benefits and is used by millions of people as a daily supplement to chill out effectively every day. One such study shows CBD can decrease the overall level of anxiety in a person in a stressful situation and is widely known to help with several other mental health issues such as addiction and paranoia. 


4. Heart Disease

The number one cause of death worldwide is heart disease, and both hemp and CBD are showing very promising results. 

Hemp seeds contain very high amounts of arginine, which is an amino acid that produces nitric oxide in the body. Nitric Oxide makes your blood vessels dilate and relax, which results in lower blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease.  

New research has suggested that CBD can lower blood pressure, and there is an associated lower stroke volume (amount of blood pumped from the heart per beat) and at a higher rate. Researchers have suggested this could be due to the analgesic and anti-anxiety effects of CBD, and this may show the beneficial cardiovascular effects in relaxing blood vessels.


5. Pain

Most people do not know about the powerful effects of a group of chemical molecules called terpenes. If you're not familiar with the incredible benefits of cannabis terpenes, take at look at Cannabis Terpenes 101. When processed correctlyhemp oil can be extremely terpene rich, and these molecules have thousands of potential uses ranging from fighting cancer to reducing pain. What's more, a combination of terpenes can have promising results by working in synergy, which is known as "the entourage effect". Many research papers suggest that β-caryophyllene is effective at reducing neuropathic pain in a CB2 receptor-dependent manner. This terpene is also found in cloves, black pepper and our new Ltd Ed Navy Strength Hemp Gin

A study has confirmed that CBD was therapeutic for patients with neuropathic pain by interacting with alpha-3 glycine receptors to reduce inflammation and pain. By working on a G-protein coupled receptor known as TRPV-1, CBD may also effectuate its properties indirectly. THC is also well documented for helping relieve certain types of pain.

As you can see, whilst these two substances are closely related therapeutically, they are unfortunately still very far apart here in Australia when it comes to the legalities of access and the knowledge that people possess to use them correctly.

  • Brian, research has indicated that CBD can help manage conditions caused by emphysema due to its unique effects on the respiratory system. But please consult your doctor for further actions.

  • Anita, it seems Australia has yet to accept Cannabis as a medicinal plant and it’s deeply saddening you have to face the consequences for it. Please, if you need help write to our contact page detailing your condition and best contact number.

  • Will this help with emphysema?

  • I am diabetes and have a heart problem for 6 long years and sick of 3x a week needling and my arms are very sore. I try to talk to the doctor if can give me a prescriptions for CBD cannabis oil but to no available. The cannabis oil was okay to have prescriptions to internet but why no doctor will give you a prescription I wonder why. It was legal in 2016 in Australia but can not get any doctor’s prescriptions.

    Regards ,

  • Hi Chris, our Hemp Seed Oil for Pets does not contain Cannabidiols which are found in CBD oil. Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are two different things, however, are derived from the same plant and therefore share similar benefits. If you need help with choosing a product to help with your dog’s condition, please see our testimonial for the Hemp Seed Oil for Pets for better guidance.

  • Rachel, so sorry to hear what you’re going through. Hemp seed oil is great in providing nutrients and also has benefits in pain relief. But CBD oil is often used to treat conditions which are more intense. You can see how cannabis works with your body by starting off with hemp seed oil, and working yourself to CBD oil if you are making progress.

  • Is your product high in CBD oils? as my dog is suffering with bad joint pains, weighs aprox 60kg, is quite old and can it be taken internally – if yes which of your products will be the best and dosage required. Thanks Michael

  • I have had two brain surgeries in under 18 months due to aneurysms doubling in size and then rupturing and massive complications and shunt insertion. Migraine pain can last for weeks and regular pain relief just doesn’t even ease pain. Do you think hemp oil is worth a try??

    Rachel on
  • Elisa, incredibly sorry to hear about your son’s current condition. CBD oil is much stronger than hemp seed oil and would be more effective in treating your son’s problems. However, it is only available with a prescription and therefore I would recommend first trying out hemp seed oil to see how your son reacts. We offer a great 100% raw hemp seed oil on the website if you choose to give it a try.

  • Gail, I cannot even start to imagine the immense pain you have endured. Taking those prescription pills definitely has many side effects which can be avoided with both CBD oil and Hemp seed oil. For minor issues such as pain and headaches aspirin might have helped, our 100% raw Hemp Seed Oil can help lessen your pain. However, CBD oil can better accommodate more intense pain you’re experiencing as a cancer patient ingesting letrozole. I would recommend trying out our 100% raw Hemp Seed Oil first to see how it goes and then consider CBD oil. Please feel free to write back to us about any progress or feedback regarding the hemp oil. Now, for your dog, we have a 100% raw Hemp Seed Oil for Pets which can help with your dog’s scratching. For more information, you can read testimonials on our website of how others used the product for their pets continuous scratching.

  • Tim, we couldn’t agree more. As
    time pass, more discoveries are found of
    benefits using CBD oil and we are excited to
    see what more is coming.

  • Marion, thank you for your keen
    eye. We will get right to it.

    The Cannabis Company on
  • It seems that the CBD has great chances to become one of the most popular food and health supplements of the century, the benefits of the CBD are scientifically proven. And surprisingly, it is useful to both people and animals!

  • This needs correction: In the Menopause section – “they may help reduce various symptoms of menopause including helping reduce bone density.” I think this should say “helping redue bone density LOSS.”

    Marion Martin on
  • My 14 year old son suffers from anxiety and depression, insomnia and eating disorder. We have seen many psychologists which only makes the anxiety worse. I have been researching all possible, natural remedies to help him with his mental health. Most pharmaceuticals products are highly addictive and have frightening side affects. I would like to try either the CBD Oil or Hemp oil to help him with his health.
    Which one is best and how do I order it?

    Elisa Brogan on
  • Hi I am a cancer patient taking letrozole for another 3 years. This drug causes heaps of side effects. Wondering If hemp oil would help with these. I am also on aspirin, Rosuvastatin, Ramipril as I had a heart attack just before the BC diagnosis.
    I also have a dog who is continually scratching I wonder if this product could help him. Thanks very much.
