Hemp oil is known to be extracted from the leaves, flowers, or seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. Evidence states that chemicals and molecules found in hemp oil can be beneficial for good skin health. Hemp oil is useful in treating inflammatory skin conditions; including psoriasis and eczema, dry skin, and acne scarring. However, research on this field is still going on.

Hemp oil can be of two types – full-spectrum hemp oil and hemp seed oil. The products made from the two types of oil have distinct characteristics. Hemp seed oil is produced by compressing the seeds instead of flowers or leaves. CBD is not present in hemp seed oil. On the other hand, manufacturers produce full-spectrum hemp oil from the pressed leaves and flowers of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp oil is used by the manufacturers as the carrier oil, and it is known to contain approximately 0.3% THC or tetrahydrocannabinol.

As both the types of hemp oil are derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, both are cannabis products. They carry a nutty flavour and are greenish in colour. Unrefined hemp oils are a bit darker in colour and are known to contain more amounts of nutrients in comparison to the refined oils.

Hemp oil has several potential health benefits, including moisturizing properties, reducing symptoms of PMS or premenstrual syndrome, reducing inflammation, preventing seizures, controlling anxiety, reducing the symptoms of depression, protecting brain and nerve cells, an excellent source of antioxidants, protein, and healthful fats. According to various scientists, the health benefits offered by hemp oil are mainly due to phytochemicals. Due to the various health benefits provided by the hemp oil, the Global Hemp Oil Market is expected to grow enormously in the upcoming future.

Some studies have found limited or preliminary evidence that chemicals and molecules present in hemp oil can benefit the overall skin health. Hemp oil can prove to be beneficial for numerous skin conditions such as dryness, acne scars, inflammatory skin conditions, skin ageing, hyperpigmentation, and UV damage.
