Boost your health with natural hemp products this winter
Posted on August 01 2022
It’s that time of year when we’re vulnerable to coughs, colds and infections — and generally feeling run down.
In this post, we’re going to highlight some hemp-based products that can boost your health this winter season and keep you on top form.
What are hemp seed products?
If you’re not familiar with hemp seed products, let’s introduce you to them. They’re derived from hemp, which is itself a variety of the cannabis sativa family of plants.
Know that hemp does not contain THC (or negligible traces, if any), the compound that gives marijuana — also from the cannabis family — its psychoactive properties.
Instead, hemp is packed full of cannabinoids, amazing compounds with many health benefits. Let’s find out more.
Benefits of hemp seed products and how you can enjoy them
It’s hard to know where to start with listing hemp seed oil benefits, but here’s a selection of what it can do to help you stay fit and healthy this winter.
We’ll start with its anti-inflammatory properties. Used in a blend, hemp seed oil will soothe away those aches and pains that always seem to get worse in the colder weather. Check out our Aches & Strains Terpene Blend to help soothe, support and repair.
Hemp oil is packed full of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which calm dry or inflamed skin. If you find that the cold weather and staying indoors irritates your skin, then you’ll benefit from our nourishing Hemp Night Serum. A blend of hemp seed and chia seed oils, it helps maintain the moisture levels in your skin and reduce some of the signs of ageing.
Chapped lips are also a hazard of the chillier weather, so invest in our Moisturising Lip Balm with a blend of oils and vitamin E to pamper and protect.
In fact, the fatty acids in hemp seed oil play a number of roles, helping to lower blood pressure, improve your heart health and counteract inflammation in the body that can lead to disease. Make the most of these benefits and protect your health from the inside with our Plus Hemp Hydrate Sparkling Vitamin Water. It’s a delicious blend of hemp, mango and raspberry, which will soon become your go-to healthy drink!
If you do succumb to a winter infection, know that our natural Cold & Flu Terpene Blend can help get you through. It harnesses hemp’s antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities to support you through minor seasonal illnesses.
Those antibacterial qualities are indispensable around the home too. Keeping germs at bay is an essential part of keeping healthy in winter, so reach for our Shack Attack Biodegradable Disinfectant Concentrate. It works effectively to keep your home clean and hygienic and you’ll also love that it’s environmentally friendly too!
