Clothes, paper, and even a car body, these are just a few things that have been made of cannabis in the past. Today, we perceive them mainly through the prism of their Indian variety marijuana, whose influence on health is still caused by heated discussions. The controversy over cannabis ricochet has found their sowing variety, devoid of narcotic properties. Cannabis oil slowly returns to favor, which is hardly surprising, its health-promoting properties are invaluable.
Before presenting the advantages of hemp oil, it should be emphasized once again: cannabis, in recent years used mainly in the chemical industry, are not a drug. The concentration of THC in plants is trace, so they are not suitable for the production of illegal stimulants.
What does hemp oil contain?
In the group of CBD Oil, it is at the forefront in terms of pro-healthy values and versatility of applications. Its biggest advantage is the high content of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), i.e. omega-3 and omega-6, constituting as much as 80 percent.
Composition of hemp oil
According to their name, these acids are necessary for the proper course of many processes occurring in our body, but we must provide them from the outside. The key to their proper operation are the proportions that are standard in hemp oil and amount to 3: 1, where 3 are omega-6 and 1 are omega-3. In our diet, the said relationship is usually disturbed in favor of less valuable omega-6 acids, which reduce the omega-3 effect. Bad proportions of acids can promote diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and cancer.
Properties of EFA:
Omega-3 acids: inhibit the multiplication of cancerous tissue, relieve rheumatic pains, prevent fluctuations in blood sugar, support the work of the heart and blood vessels, improve the condition of hair, skin and nails.
Omega-6 acids: support wound healing and liver and kidney function, but in too large amounts promote atherosclerosis and cancer development!
Fatty acids, including oleic, linoleic, linolenic and gamma-linolenic acid, make up most of the oil, but are also accompanied by other valuable nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, such as:
Vitamin E – supports the activity of omega-3 acids, improves the elasticity of blood vessels and blood circulation.
Vitamin A – improves vision, skin condition and immunity.
Vitamins from group B – are necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Vitamin K – allows blood to clot, protects the body against fungi, bacteria and inflammation and soothes pain.
Calcium: strengthens bones and teeth.
Zinc: strengthens hair, skin and nails.
Phosphorus: it is responsible for mineralization of teeth and bones and proper functioning of the nervous system.
Magnesium: prevents painful spasms, ensures the supply of energy to tissues, calms and improves memory and concentration.

The combination of these ingredients makes hemp oil have a salutary effect on our health. Among its properties are:
Cardiovascular system: reduces the concentration of lipids in the blood, thus preventing atherosclerosis, strengthens blood vessels and improves blood flow. In addition, it favors congestion, because it inhibits aggregation, or sticking of blood cells, which causes the formation of clots and plugs that clog the blood vessels.
The immune system: due to the presence of omega-3 and omega-6 acids, hemp oil increases the natural immunity of the body, strengthening the intestinal flora, which affects the access of dangerous bacteria.
