Additional Benefits Of Hemp OIL
Welcome back. I am delighted that you are staying with me and reading on about the additional benefits of Hemp oil and Hemp oil products. This natural resource is what is known as a panacea - a cure-all medicine - that if taken regularly can bring your all round health and immune system into supreme shape. This page explores some specific medical and health problems that can be cured or significantly alleviated through the use of Hemp oil as well as the multiple uses this versatile oil can be put to and ways it can become part of your daily life.
Over a decade ago I noticed one beauty/body product company launch a major marketing campaign with Hemp products. At that stage, I did not believe the hype. Something that can be used as a hand cream and a medicine somehow sets alarm bells ringing. It feels like some old wives tale. From a more mature perspective; having travelled to countries where the National Health Service has not produced such conformist anxieties about natural sources or reliance on the pharmaceutical companies; my instincts tell me the opposite. A cheaply processed natural resource that has been used by different civilisations as a pain relief and anti-inflammatory medicine not to mention multiple other daily uses including rope or oily mediums for tools and machinery, is surely a truth we should seek out.. It's the same with Aloe Vera. I remember cutting myself up on a windsurfer in the Caribbean and then struggling to heal in the tropical heat. A friendly Rasta who heard me moaning, walked over to an Aloe plant growing nearby and pulled off a juicy stem. He daubed the thick viscous sap all over my cuts and grazes and told me to do the same for a couple of days. Lo and behold, all the festering areas of skin cleared up speedily. I got a tiny drop of the yellow sap on my tongue and the shocking sourness nearly made me pass out. It was not surprising that the Aloe gel worked wonders both to prevent mosquitoes coming near and to heal any bites. Mixed with a little water it was also recommended for diet issues, treating the pain and inflammation of arthritis and, used regularly, could stand in for most beauty treatments to bring about a make-over of glowing skin etc. When I got home to the UK i tried to find some Aloe juice and was amazed to see how much the various products cost considering how simple it had been to just break off the stem from a commonly growing plant in this tropical paradise.
Well....its a similar deal with Hemp oil and Hemp oil products. when you have finished perusing this page you can check out the links to products and outlets in the final page. My view is that you get most benefit from getting hold of an organic Hemp oil and using it orally or topically in its most pure and concentrated form. Marajuana oil is a much stronger medicine for ailments such as cancer, arthritis etc and as a pain relief as it still contains THC. However, it can have psychotropic effects if consumed and it is illegal and therefore not available in stores. My route has been to ensure I get a good dosage every day both on a teaspoon and used in food so I can benefit from Hemp's health benefits without the hassle of getting hold of its stronger relative on the black market.
Why is Hemp oil a panacea/cure all medicine:
Just a reminder of how rich in elements this oil extracted from Hemp seeds is......It is nature's most perfectly balanced oil loaded with anti-oxidants, protein, carotene, phylosterols, phospholipids, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc, potassium and iron. In terms of vitamins it has A, B1, B2, B3 not to mention B6. It has vitamins C, D and E. It is rich with Omega 3 and 6 and is a concentrated source of essential fatty acids known as EFA and Gamma Linoeic Acids known as GLA. GLA is known to lower the risk of heart disease and strengthen the immune system. EFA lower blood cholesterol and ensure a good blood flow to vital organs, It helps transfer oxygen to cells throughout the body.
Hemp oil as a preventative and cure for Arthritis
Like Cancer, Arthritis in its forms of Rheumatoid and Osteo Arthritis is very common but causes so much fear as an incurable, painful and seriously debilitating disease. General wear and tear of our bodies - stretching muscles and pounding joints - can bring on Rheumatoid's swelling and inflammation of joints. Hemp oil taken regularly and also used topically to baste the afflicted areas - works to ease the pain, inflammation and over a period of weeks, builds up in the body and helps to reduce and then prevent further inflammation. I used to get the first symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis in my finger and thumb joints probably set off by too much lifting in the gym and crazy hand stands and lifts when i was a young break dancer. After a year of using Hemp oil these aches disappeared. I feel well-oiled and strong again.
Osteo Arthritis is a degenerative joint disease where the cartilege breaks down. Hemp oil taken orally is also recommended for the prevention of this and resistance to further deterioration. My experience of this comes from watching my dearest dog, 'Muzik' return to health. More than anything, Musik, loved to romp with other dogs in the park. Like many staffies he was an expert gamester and wrestler. He loved nothing more but to chase around with big lurchers and get tumbled over, duck and dive and play hard. One day he cried and squealed after a game and then limped home. It seemed to heal but then over two years he developed a minor limp in one and then the other of his front legs. He had itchy pads and some skin allergies so it was hard for the vet to tell whether the minor limps - one side then the other were due to pads or something else. Finally we took the plunge and had x-rays and investigative surgery. He was diagnosed with elbow displaysia and osteo-arthritis, He had surgery to remove bone fragments that had degenerated and broken off. To tell the truth... I felt so low as I thought his active life was over. He was four years old in the prime of life - so this felt tragic. I started giving him a little Hemp oil with his food and did everything I could to ensure his healing process was taken step by step. Its nearly two years since his surgery. I got a phone call from the Vetinary Hospital the other day to enquire how his mobility was. They were shocked to hear that he is playing like a puppy again. He leaps and wrestles and tears like a bullet across the fields. He is clearly in optimum health as his dark brindle coat gleams like polished wood. His skin has cleared up too. No more ear or pad allergies. He was allergic to many foods before I gave him Hemp oil and was always eating grass and having an upset digestion. The Hemp oil has worked like a panacea on him. He loves his food and doesn't get the runs all the time.
General Medical/Beauty benefits of Hemp oil
If you check out the list of conditions alleviated or cured by daily use of Hemp oil there are clearly three areas that it has a powerful and positive impact on. The first group are related to anxiety and stress conditions - for instance: Pre-Menstrual Tension, Depression, Dementia, A second group relate to anti-inflammatory such as arthritis, glaucoma, gastro-related conditions and allergies. The third are more widely about boosting an optimum immune system and health of vital organs such as its effect on cancer.

Hemp oil and a Healthy Diet
I was surprised to discover how delicious Hemp oil is. It has an earthy, grassy fragrance and rich nutty after-taste. It is not difficult to take it in concentrated form as a teaspoon or desert spoon. It can also be used as a pure dressing on vegetables and salads or mixed with other ingredients to create a fantastic salad dressing. It can be used as a substitute for cooking oils in any recipe. As I train in the gym daily I am interested in maintaining a well-balanced, healthy diet and ensuring that my stamina and muscle recovery is good. Since I have been using Hemp oil I find that my running speed is excellent and my stamina feels greatly improved. If I have a few days away from training it feels a lot easier to get back to optimum fitness. My sense of vitality - having extra power to give - is there.
You can tell I'm a Hemp oil disciple. Why not. When something so natural, simple and pure and cheap is there for you and when it clearly benefits health and happiness on so many fronts it does feel like some sort of revelation. Hope you get the same buzz from it.
