For years, Hemp has gotten a bad rap for being mistaken as being the same thing as its more recreationally used cousin, marijuana, and although the two come from the same species of plant (“Cannabis Sativa L”) there are two major distinctions – scientific and usage. While industrial Hemp tends to produce high levels of the cannabinoid CBD & low amounts of THC, marijuana conversely produces high levels of THC & low levels of CBD. Industrial Hemp also boasts over 50,000 uses (from textiles to clothing to skincare to food & many others), while marijuana is popular for its psychoactive properties, or “high”.

I’ve used Hemp Oil in skincare and it’s one of my favorites – it’s dubbed “nature’s most perfectly balanced oil” because it contains all known 21 amino acids & the ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (Linoleic) to Omega 3 (alpha-Linolenic) essential fatty acids, the optimal requirement for healthy skin. I’ve also used Hemp seeds & powder in various food recipes as a source of protein.
But it’s the testimonies of Hemp Oil helping to alleviate pain as well certain health issues that really makes this plant special, in my opinion. I was recently introduced to Hemp Health Inc, a company that produces a pure, vegan, non-GMO & federally legal form of CBD-rich Hemp Oil products, as well as a user’s story of how this amazing oil helped her and her whole family.
The story I’m sharing is that of Sue McQuown, a loyal Hemp Health customer who lives in Vista, California.
