While many people automatically associate hemp and other cannabis-derived substances with the psychoactive effects of smoking it, there is more to the cannabis plant than getting high. The history of hemp goes back to ancient times in China, Egypt, India, Netherlands, Greece, as well as the medieval Islamic world – those cultures discovered the wealth of benefits it carries, and used it to improve their day-to-day lives.



Today, and with the help of advanced cultivation techniques and the various extraction methods, hemp has become even more accessible for everyone to benefit from. In this article, we quickly go over some of the reasons why you should integrate hemp as part of your budget, and make the best of this incredible plant.


To Improve Your Physical Health
Hemp oil has always been famous for its holistic wellness characteristics as it promotes physical health and well being. Full spectrum hemp extract carries a mixture of cannabinoids, vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, flavonoids and terpenes which hold a number of protective and therapeutic effects. These include pain relief; sleep improvement; brain cell protection; and anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics to name a few.

Hemp oil was also proven effective in the topical treatment of several skin conditions including eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, varicose eczema, and acne. In addition, hemp oil can be useful in the promotion of healthy hair growth, shine, and the prevention of split ends.

To Promote Your Mental Wellbeing
Across generations, hemp extract has been used as a natural and safe alternative to some pharmacologically developed medicines aimed at mental health. It can help ease stress and anxiety, reduce depression, and improve the overall mood. It is known to be a “feel good” plant with no side effects, unlike chemical drugs and prescription medications.


To Enrich Your Diet  
Rich in numerous nutritious components, like essential fatty acids and amino acids, hemp is often integrated into meal recipes to boost their nutritional value. You can try preparing your salad dressing with hemp oil; add hemp seeds to the batter while preparing a cake; or crush them to make healthy, nutrient-laden flour to be used in baking. Some people even eat the seeds whole as a snack, just like other nuts and seeds.



To Give Your Beverages a Twist
With just thirty seconds online, you would be happy to discover that there are dozens of recipes for hemp oil infused drinks and cocktails. Mixing it up with these fresh creations will not only add the benefit of relaxation to your beverages, but will also give them a twist of flavor. You can simply add hemp oil to anything from cocktails, lattes and iced chocolate drinks, to healthy green smoothies and even sparkling water.


More Than Meets the Eye
With a rich nutrient profile, essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants, hemp derivatives can be tremendously useful in promoting physical health, improving skin care and beauty regimes, treating anxiety and depression, as well as enhancing the nutritional value of food and beverages. They are also perfectly safe to consume, and that’s why you should consider making them a part of your budget.
