24 Apr Adding Hemp & CBD to Your Everyday Products
Find new ways to incorporate the balancing and nourishing properties of hemp into the foods and body care products you use everyday.
With hemp foods and products becoming massively popular due to their incredible balancing and nutritional content, many health-conscious consumers are actively seeking new ways to incorporate the nourishing powerhouse into their everyday products.
Harvested for its oil, seeds, and fiber, hemp can be easily added to the foods and skincare products you use every day.
Benefits of Adding Hemp to Your Daily Life
Hemp is a valuable source of cannabinoids and many of the nutrients your body needs every day to maintain health and wellness. The non-psychoactive variety of cannabis is thought to be among the first domesticated crops.
The oil derived from the stalks of hemp is naturally abundant in cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound that has become highly sought after in recent years. CBD interacts with your body through the endocannabinoid system, a signaling network that regulates the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance.
Both hemp oil and hemp seeds are nutrient-dense, providing vital nutrients that are often otherwise missing from contemporary diets. Hemp contains the optimal ratio of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and is considered a complete protein, providing all 20 amino acids: including the 9 essential amino acids the body is unable to synthesize on its own.
Hemp also contains a wide array of important vitamins and minerals that support a healthy diet and encourage healthy skin, including vitamins A, C, and E, B complex vitamins, zinc, and potassium, to name a few.
Adding Hemp to Your Diet
By incorporating more hemp into your everyday diet, you support a balanced diet and help ensure your body receives the vital nutrients your body needs for optimal functioning. Hemp is also an ideal food choice for vegans and vegetarians, or anyone looking to incorporate more plant-based foods into their dietary routine.
Adding Hemp Seeds
Hemp seeds that have been sterilized are available to use as a food product. With their light nutty flavor, they can be eaten on their own as a healthy snack. They can also be seamlessly added to many of the foods you eat every day to boost the dish’s nutritional value.
Sprinkle them over your favorite salad and soups, or stir them into your morning bowl of yogurt or oatmeal. They also add a delicious crunch when added atop roasted vegetables.
Adding Hemp CBD oil
Because of its versatility, hemp CBD oil products can also be added to many of your favorite foods.
To protect the oil’s CBD potency, it’s best that hemp CBD oil isn’t heated to extremely high temperatures. Combine it with your go-to salad dressing, pesto, or any of your favorite dips. CBD hemp oil can also be infused into butter, opening up an array of options, such as a topping for morning waffles or smothered onto a baked potato at dinner. An endless number of smoothie recipes also lend well to CBD hemp oil.
Adding Hemp Protein
Hemp protein is a type of food made by grinding the plant’s seeds. The seeds are first shelled, leaving the inside of the seed hemp heart, before being blended into an ultra fine powder.
Because of its protein content and powder form, hemp protein is a popular choice for blending into post-exercise smoothies. It also combines well into pancake or waffle batter for a high-protein start to ensure you’re properly fueled for the day.
Adding Hemp Milk
Available in many health food stores, hemp milk is a type of vegan beverage made by soaking and grinding shelled hemp seeds into water.
You can use hemp milk as a base for your morning cereal, or mix it into a bowl of granola. Another popular option is to use hemp milk as a coffee creamer, stirring it into your morning cup of joe.
Adding Hemp to Your Skin Care
When blended into your everyday skin and body care products, hemp CBD oil is full of nutrients that can provide nourishment for your skin, hair, and nails, leaving them hydrated and healthy. When applied topically, CBD and the other active compounds in hemp oil are absorbed right through the skin, providing targeted treatment to where it’s needed most.
Infuse the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash products you already have with the natural balancing and nourishing properties of CBD hemp oil. For best results, blend the hemp CBD oil into a single bathing session’s worth of your product. Some find it easier and prefer to mix the product with the hemp CBD oil in the palm of their hand immediately before use.
Your everyday lotion can also be easily infused with CBD hemp oil. Simply blend the two together in your palm just before application. Rub your new CBD lotion into dry skin, wrinkles, or age spots for all-natural revitalization.
Do you make your own homemade bar soap? Combine a small amount of CBD hemp oil with lye, coconut oil, distilled water, and your favorite essential oils to cold process soap infused with the balancing properties of CBD.
