PROS: Hemp butter can boost your immune system and make your skin look great without that THC high
CONS: Being 100% natural means that it must be kept in the refrigerator to avoid quick spoiling
TAKEAWAY: Many reviewers swear by hemp butter’s multifunctional benefits, so it’s worth a personal try to test out the hype
Many people make the mistake of thinking that hemp and marijuana are the same – they’re not. While both are part of the cannabis plant family, they are completely different species and they have different effects on the body.
All cannabis plants contain two compounds called THC and CBD. THC has psychoactive properties, meaning it gets people high. CBD has no psychoactive properties and has actually been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects on users, which is why it is often used for medicinal purposes.
Hemp, unlike marijuana, has very low levels of THC and high levels of CBD, making it more soothing to the body. Hemp can be ingested or used topically to support your immune system and enhance your appearance.
Case in point: Natural Hemp’s Cold-Pressed Hemp Butter, which is a versatile way to get multiple benefits from hemp for your body, both internally and externally. The hemp butter is food-grade, so you can add it to toast, vegetables or any other food you want to give a nutty-tasting punch. A two-tablespoon serving provides a whopping 11 grams of protein, which is about the same as a serving of tofu and more than a serving of eggs. Hemp also includes amino acids that are necessary to promote healing and the growth of healthy muscles, bones, skin and hair. Natural Hemp’s hemp butter is 100% pure, organic, raw and vegan, so you can be confident in the fact that you’re getting a good quality product without unnecessary fillers or chemicals.
Most reviewers spread the hemp butter on their skin for pain relief and cosmetic boosts. Hemp butter is ultra-moisturizing since it contains Omegas 3 and 6 in addition to Vitamin E. Reviewers also recommend using it in place of hand cream for youthful-appearing skin and to repair cracked cuticles. Some have even found that skin conditions like psoriasis and acne have been soothed since they began using hemp butter. Sore joints, arthritic limbs, cramps and bodies recovering from surgeries have also been soothed from the fatty acids and CBD within the butter, according to thrilled reviews. Many buyers have even stopped taking NSAIDs, like ibuprofen and aspirin, to manage their pain because hemp butter is a more natural, but still effective, alternative.
Now you know you the difference between hemp and marijuana, and the possible benefits of adding hemp butter to your daily routine. All that’s left to do is try it out and welcome the moisturizing, nourishing and relieving results Natural Hemp can bring.
