5 Benefits and Uses of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
Curious why you’re seeing hemp oil everywhere? Think that it sounds too good to be true? Not sure how to use it? We’re here to demystify why it’s more than the hype.
1. Manage Stress and Anxiety, Naturally:
A daily regimen with hemp oil reduces your body’s natural stress response and stress hormones (bye Cortisol!).
Like a thermostat, Plant People hemp oil kicks in right when you need it, bringing you back into balance and a comfortable state. Hemp oil helps our bodies and brain access and reduce the breakdown of important chemicals that we produce like serotonin and anandamide (a.k.a the “bliss” molecule). The result is a life filled with more joy and relaxation… and way less stress.
2. Reduce Pain and Inflammation:
Both sublingual (under the tongue) delivery and topical use, like with our Plant Balm, is highly effective for reducing chronic pain and inflammation. A 2015 study concluded that mice given topical hemp oil for arthritis had significantly less inflammation and pain signals after only four days without any side effects.
3. Improve Your Sleep:
Get your zzz’s and feel rejuvenated. Our Drops+ Sleep has full-spectrum hemp extract. There are many ways in which hemp oil can support more restful and deeper sleep by reducing chronic pain, anxiety and other challenges that prevent us from a deep sleep. Further, it can help reduce REM sleep disorder. REM paralyzes the body during sleep to prevent a physical reaction to dreams.
4. Heal Without a Habit:
Hemp oil is not addictive so keeping the same dose in your regiment is perfectly fine and encouraged. In fact, the more you use it, the better it works (pretty much the opposite of any addictive drug). Our bodies don’t build up a tolerance to the compound!
5. Achieve Clarity Not a High:
Hemp Oil is not psychoactive or psychotropic. Yes, it is derived, however, it only contains trace amounts (or 0%) of the compound which has the altering effect. This means that it doesn’t get you high (or altered). Rather than getting you high, it heals, reducing stress, anxiety, pain, and inflammation with complete mental clarity.
