Have you ever thought of a versatile plant for each season? Think hemp! 

There is no question to it that hemp is the buzzy wellness plant of the moment. For the records, hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species grown primarily for the industrial use of its derived products. While it serves as everyone’s friend due to a variety of reasons ranging from nutritional to health benefits, researchers cannot get enough of the plant and its intriguing products! This article highlights some of the plant’s most popular products and their uses:

What is hemp used for? Hemp products include:

Hemp Oil

Hemp oil is what it sounds like – “oil that comes from hemp.” The oil is a great asset when it comes to skin health due to the vitamins and fatty acids that keep the skin healthy and prevent breakouts. Moreover, the fatty acid content of hemp oil may also be beneficial for the brain, which needs plenty of healthy fats to operate appropriately.  In addition, hemp oil may be useful for the heart because of its comprehensive nutrient profile and as a form of natural pain relief, most especially if the pain is a result of inflammation.  Besides, the fatty acids in hemp oil also prevent inflammation that can result in acne. Meanwhile, full-spectrum hemp oil (that contains CBD) may help relieve tension in the muscles and stress.


Amazingly, all you might need for better health may be gummies. Hemp gummies are edible hemp products (and are gummies, of course) that come with many benefits. Based on research, the cannabidiol in hemp gummies is an antioxidant, and antioxidants defend the body and the brain by getting rid of free radicals. 

Interestingly, they also work as a digestive aid by fueling your appetite serving a tremendous help for patients suffering from or treated for cancer. Research has it that cancer patients usually have a decrease in appetite (as well as nausea), and hemp gummies take care of this! 

Meanwhile, hemp creams also have outstanding benefits, especially when it comes to skincare. With the level of Vitamin A found in hemp, the creams help fight wrinkles, assist skin elasticity, and water retention. 


CBD products have been integral to the wellness niche, and the reasons are not far-fetched. CBD oil is known to treat a wide variety of health-related issues such as Acne, Anorexia, Anxiety, Chronic pain, Depression, Glaucoma, High blood pressure, and so on. It is perfect for pain management and reduces pain associated with diseases like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. It has also shown promise as a treatment for both anxiety, depression, and children with insomnia and anxiety in children with post-traumatic stress. 

Like hemp oil, CBD oil can alleviate cancer-related symptoms, and due to its anti-inflammatory properties may help treat acne as well.

Meanwhile, CBD gummies also support healthy inflammatory function, support a healthy sleep cycle, relieve pain, depression, and anxiety. CBD creams reduce pain and inflammation, soothe skin problems, and help in healing wounds.

There you have it- the versatile plant and its numerous uses! You would be surprised at how pleased you would feel after this ‘little’ action.
