10 Common Questions And Answers About Hemp Oils

1) What are hemp oils and how are they made?

Hemp oils are created by extracting oils, called cannabinoids, from the hemp plant. While all plants from the Cannabis genus produce the oils, hemp plants (usually industrial hemp plants), as opposed to marijuana plants, are typically used to produce hemp oils, due to the fact that plants that have been cultivated for marijuana contain high levels of THC. Hemp oil contains very little to no THC, which means it has no psychoactive properties.

Hemp oil comes in many different forms, and can be used for a large variety of purposes, ranging from pain management and other health uses, to beauty products, cooking ingredients, and industrial applications such as productions of plastics, paint, and even as biodiesel.

3) What types of hemp oil products are there?

In terms of the most commonly used applications for hemp oils available to consumers, namely health considerations, there are two main categories for hemp oil products. These two main groups consist of consumables, such as drops, edibles like cookies and brownies, or gummies, and topicals such as massage oils and pain relieving creams.

Each type of consumable product has varying effectiveness and speed at which they work, but all are designed with a similar purpose in mind, namely pain management or treatment of other health issues like anxiety and depression.

Unlike common over the counter or prescription drugs, hemp oils are often 100% natural products. In most cases, the oils extracted from the hemp plant are combined into other oils such as coconut or olive oil, and can have other additives for flavor or aroma, but typically do not contain chemical additives.

6) How much research has been done about hemp oils?

Hemp oils are a relatively new product to become available to consumers, as the laws and restrictions have recently beem changing rapidly, especially in the United States. This means that while there has been some research done, there is still much more to learn in terms of scientific evaluation of effectiveness and long term side effects.

7) What are the drawbacks to using hemp oils?

There have been some reports that suggest there may be some adverse side effects to the consumption of hemp oils. These include digestive upset or nausea and diarrhea, which could lead to increased weight loss. While further research needs to be done to confirm or deny these claims, it might be best for individuals with a history of digestive concerns to speak to a health professional before beginning to take hemp oil consumables.

8) Are they financially viable versus traditional drugs?

One important thing to consider is that currently no hemp oil products are covered by health insurance, even in states where hemp oils and marijuana use is legal. The cost can be prohibitive for some, but for those that are willing to pay the extra expense, the benefits far outweigh the expense.

9) Are hemp oils safe for long term use?

Hemp oil products are THC-free, which means there is no “high” when using the products like people experience with marijuana use. Additionally, there is little to no risk of dependency or withdrawal symptoms. While there is insufficient research to determine if any long term side effects may occur, hemp oil products are considered to be relatively safe for most consumers, and carry far less known risks and side effects compared to tradition medicines that treat the same ailments.

10) Are hemp oil products legal?

The laws governing marijuana, including medical marijuana, vary from state to state, but these laws are not the same for hemp oil products.
