Another interesting fact is that hemp oil is very effective in relieving chronic pain. The hemp seed oil is essentially the oil produced using hemp seeds and is full of nutrition, and thus can be consumed. It can be used to cook food or to garnish salad etc. Since hemp seeds are super-nutritious themselves, the hemp seed oil created from them contains the same health advantages. The cannabinoids present in hemp (only in trace amounts) are the biochemical substance that helps improve the well-being and health of its users.
In addition to this, hemp is also effective for many other chronic health issues, including depression and anxiety as mentioned earlier. There are also an ever increasing number of studies that show hemp is also effective in the treatment of disease like diabetes, PTSD, alcohol addiction and other neurological disorders.

Woodcock asserts that, compared with other anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen, CBD represents a safe alternative. “CBD provides inflammation relief without the blood-thinning or stomach ulceration side effects that traditional over-the-counter anti-inflammatories can cause.”

Inflammation occurs as a natural protective response when the body is harmed. There are two types of inflammation: acute and chronic.
Acute inflammation occurs following an injury, infection, or illness. The immune system unleashes immune cells to the affected area to protect it, causing redness and swelling.
“Based on my experience, I think that CBD may offer some relief if dosed properly, such as a minimum of 50 milligrams a day to start, but it may take a few weeks to see a good result,” said Woodcock.
Lucy Blythe, whose name has been changed for this article, has experimented with CBD to help treat her chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, and fibromyalgia — all of which are autoimmune illnesses characterized by chronic inflammation in the body.
“I have taken CBD to fight inflammation and have tried four different brands,” Allen explained. “I didn’t notice a difference with any of the brands. So, I prefer to use my other anti-inflammatories, like Plaquinel, low-dose naltrexone, and turmeric.”

Over time, excess inflammation in your body can contribute to a variety of diseases including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and asthma. It has been suggested that gamma linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid found in hemp, acts as an anti-inflammatory. Studies have also linked the omega-3 fatty acids in hemp with reductions in inflammation.
