Organic hemp seed oil is unique in that it has a very similar composition of fats and amino acids as our own natural skin oils, making it one of the most well-tolerated oils for all skin types. Hemp seed oil is made specifically from the seeds of the hemp plant and has a different composition than the plant itself. For example, there is no THC in organic hemp seed oil; thus, it is both legal and non-psychoactive unlike other parts of the cannabis plant. What hemp seed oil does include, however, is a huge amount of well-known powerful skin care compounds like Vitamin E, Vitamin C, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). In fact, no other oil is packed with as much essential fatty acids as hemp seed. Overall, hemp seed oil is an excellent emollient (hydrates skin), non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), and improves the appearance of skin by increasing circulation.
