There are so many ways to utilize the benefits that come from the hemp plant. One great way to get the benefits of the product is CBD hemp lotion. The main reason for using it is that it typically is very beneficial for the skin.

But as with everything, it’s important to understand what makes up this product and why it may be a good option to utilize.

What is hemp lotion?

It’s pretty basic the way hemp lotion is made. The idea is taking lotion, which already is moisturizing, and adding a hemp-based CBD product to it to give it even more health benefits.

In most cases, it’s made with hemp seed oil which has tons of benefits because of the compounds it contains. 

Hemp seed oil typically contains lots of naturally occurring materials including vitamins, minerals, and omega fatty acids that have various benefits

It has a 3 to 1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3, respectively. This is the ideal balance for fast absorption for moisturizing without clogging skin pores. These fatty acids are known as “good fats” and a healthy balance of these can help not only with your skin but fatty acids have shown to help with heart health as well.

It also contains vitamins A, C, and E which have shown to have anti-wrinkle properties and have shown to protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

So with all of these compounds working together, hemp seed oil’s aim is to help with multiple ailments. Here is what anecdotal evidence has shown hemp lotion to aid with:

  • Eczema
  • Atopic Dermatitis 
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Itchy skin

Finding the right product:

Finding the right hemp lotion for you can be a bit of trial and error, just like with any hemp or CBD products. That makes doing your homework on what you are purchasing extremely important. 

You should know what kind of hemp products are being used whether it’s CBD oil or hemp seed oil in the lotion. Some lotions do contain full-spectrum CBD oil which also has its place, but you have to find the right product for you.

That leads to the actual use of the product as well. Starting with small doses and working up from there is the key to success, making sure that you react well to the lotion before using it all over your body.
