Searching for a magic elixir to melt away stress and improve your sex life? As it turns out, the holy grail really DOES exist – and our friends at Hey Hemp Co are bottling it right here in New Zealand!
Sinful is thrilled to introduce our customers to Hey Hemp Co’s fabulous range of Hemp Seed Oil products, which include Full Spectrum Terpenes Hemp Seed Oil for pain, stress, and anxiety relief. Here’s the skinny on why you should consider adding Hemp Seed Oil to your wellness – and sexual vitality – routine.
What is Hemp Oil?
Also known as hemp seed oil, hemp oil is derived by cold-pressing the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. Since cannabis and hemp are two varieties of the same plant species, they’re often lumped together – but hemp oil contains no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and won’t get you high.
Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil
Hemp seed oil and CBD oil are very different products. While CBD oil is produced using the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant, hemp seed oil comes from theseedsof the Cannabis sativa plant. The seeds do not contain CBD, but they still have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds that can also have health benefits.
Wellness Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil
Long celebrated for its health benefits, hemp oil is high in B vitamins and vitamin D, and contains omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid, and other nutritional antioxidants.
Here are our top five favourite benefits of hemp seed oil:
1. Better Joint Health
Packed with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, hemp seeds can work as a natural anti-inflammatory. Studies indicate hemp oil may help reduce inflammation in the brain, as well as reduce the inflammatory symptoms of health issues such as arthritis. It’s also great for joint health and mobility, so it’s perfect for sportsmen and physical labourers.
2. Better Skin
If you want healthier skin, throw hemp oil into your diet. Your skin needs Omega 3s and 6s to look its best, and hemp oil is said to have the perfect ratio of both. The Omegas in hemp oil may be effective in treating a number of skin conditions, from acne and eczema to psoriasis. Not only does it moderate oil production, it also moisturises and soothes inflammation while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hemp oil can also encourage stronger skin that is more resistant to viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
3. Stress & Anxiety Relief
Studies suggest hemp oil can is great for stress-management since it affects the part of the brain responsible for our fight-or-flight response. Help seed oil helps prevent anxiety and depression by instructing your endocannabinoid system (ECS) to boost your mind’s mechanism for relaxation.
4. Better Hormone Balance
Do you (or does someone you love) experience symptoms of PMS or menopause? Hemp oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which can deplete during times of hormonal imbalance. Using hemp oil to reintroduce GLAs can help bring hormone – and mood – levels back into balance, and reduce the symptoms of PMS and menopause.
5. Better Sleep
Getting a good night’s sleep can be a struggle – especially during times of stress. As well as helping to manage stress and anxiety, hemp seed oil offers an added benefit for healthy sleep. Cannabinoid from hemp boosts the action of the ECS – helping you sleep better and longer.
How Hemp Seed Oil Can Lead to Better Sex
When you’re stressed, anxious, sore or sleep-deprived, sex is probably the farthest thing on your mind. In fact, studies have shown that the stress hormone cortisol can significantly lower your libido. One of the most important ways in which hemp seed oil consumption can help improve your sex life – especially for those suffering from sexual performance anxiety – is its ability to reduce stress and anxiety.
By improving your overall wellness, minimising body aches and pains, feeling and looking great and getting better sleep, your sexual appetite and stamina is supported, too. PLUS, hemp seed oil is believed to help create a deeper emotional connections during sex.
Hemp oil increases the serum concentration of an endocannabinoid neurotransmitter called anandamide, which is closely associated with oxytocin – also known as the ‘cuddle chemical’ and ‘love hormone’. Research has shown that an increase in anandamide during sex increases pleasure.
