Is Hemp Oil beneficial for the health of your skin?
Hemp oil is actually different from CBD oil. Hemp oil is extracted by cold-pressing hemp seeds, and CBD oil is extracted from hemp leaves and flowers. While hemp oil, hempseed oil and CBD oil might contain traces of Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC), it is well below the legal limit of .3% and does not have any mind-altering effect.

Pure Hemp Oil
Both CBD products for the skin and Pure Hemp Oil can be used directly on your skin, like when you are experiencing irritated or dry skin patches.

Step 1: Wash an area on your upper arm and pat it dry
Step 2: Apply a small amount of pure hemp oil
Step 3: Cover the area with a bandage and leave it for 24 hours. The bandage needs to be kept dry.
Step 4: If you experience any burning, irritation or itching of the affected area, this could mean your skin is too sensitive for this oil. If so, standard soap and water should alleviate the problem. You can also try a lesser amount and/or diluting the concentration.
