The legalization of hemp in 2018 paved the way for hemp production to begin and a host of products to be released to the general public. As interest in and research into hemp began after this development, we've started to realize that hemp may hold more secrets than was previously thought, especially when it comes to health benefits. Are you interested in trying out hemp products for yourself? If so, here are three unique benefits that hemp products offer to your overall well-being.

1. Hemp Could Prove to Be a Useful Addition to Your Skincare Regimen

When most people think of hemp, they either think of the hemp seed oil that's traditionally used in cooking or specific hemp products that are smoked, incorporated into edibles, or used as a tincture. But while both of these hemp products are quite popular, you might be surprised to learn that hemp is being increasingly utilized in skincare products.

Why? According to research, hemp oil may hydrate the skin, moderate oil production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soothe inflammation, and even target specific issues like atopic dermatitis. You can generally use it on its own, make your own products out of it, or find specially formulated products with hemp oil as a main ingredient.

2. Hemp and Hemp Derivatives May Be Neuroprotective

Hemp seed extract and, more specifically, cannabidiol (CBD) could act as a neuroprotectant that serves to combat the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases or even keep the brain in better health over the long term to try to prevent these diseases from manifesting as strongly as they might otherwise.

While more research needs to be done before any definitive conclusions can be drawn (and CBD or hemp seed extract should never be a replacement for traditional medicine), the plant's antioxidative and antiinflammatory properties do point to its potential for supporting brain health.

3. Specific Hemp Derivatives Could Be Excellent at Reducing Stress

When you think about hemp products, what's the first application you think about? If you're like most, you probably thought about relaxation and unwinding. CBD was the first to enter the scene and the one that's most associated with anxiety and stress relief. However, the legalization of hemp also made it possible to extract psychoactive compounds like delta-9, delta-8, and others from hemp. These too have shown their potential to help people feel more at ease, especially at lower doses. Whether you're someone who likes to unwind at the end of a long day or someone looking for a natural product that could help you feel more at ease in your daily life, hemp products could be beneficial for you.

Hemp is a unique plant that is capable of offering a host of potential recreational and medicinal benefits. While we still have more to explore as we get to know this plant and what it can do when it's absorbed into the body, the three unique benefits above should provide you with more insight into how you can use hemp products in your daily life to improve your overall well-being.
