Hemp Oil Products A World of Wonder
To say there were a million uses for hemp would be an overstatement, but hem and hemp oil products certainly cover a wide range of applications. From bio-fuels to beauty products, we explore a few of the amazing things that can be done with hemp oil.

Biodiesel from hemp oil
Right now, oil prices are relatively low, and as result, so are fuel prices. But how long can this last? Every third grader already knows that oil is not a renewable resource. What will we do when it runs out? Of course, we could rely on electric vehicles or hydrogen cells or any number of new technologies, but if we need renewable diesel, hemp might just have the answers. The only problem with this is that hemp is gaining popularity as a health food product, and fuel for people commands better prices than fuel for trucks and tractors!
Culinary hemp oil products
Stand back Jamie Oliver! Here comes an old food ingredient that we’ve just begun rediscovering. Hemp oil! Use it just as you would olive oil, ideally raw or only lightly heated. Not only is it healthy, but you can make wonderful salad dressings or add a special flavor to your stir fries.
Hemp oil as a health product
One could write a book on hemp oil as health product. They’re full of antioxidants, terpenes, flavonoids, a perfect balance of fatty acids, proteins and those interesting cannabinoids that we’re discovering can be so good for balancing your system.
Almost every time we hear about a product being great for your health, you’ll hear about the rejuvenating powers of antioxidants, so although hemp oil products may not quite be the fountain of youth, they must come pretty close to that!
Hemp chewing gum
Seriously? Chewing gum? You bet. This si just one more way that hemp oil products intended as health supplements can be used. Here’s the idea: the best way to absorb hemp oil directly into your blood stream is through the capillaries in your mouth and under your tongue. If you swallow it, it will still be good for you, but your digestive processes will make some alterations to what you actually absorb.
Normally, you hold a hemp oil under your tongue for a while, but there’s only so long you can keep it in your mouth. By adding hemp oil to chewing gum, you get a slow-release action and plenty of time for your capillaries to absorb those healthy ingredients.
Hemp oil products for beauty
As we age, our skins become drier and we get those dreaded wrinkles we so wish we didn’t have (particularly if we’re women). For a long time, we’ve known that antioxidants have a rejuvenating effect on skin, and with so many wonderful antioxidants in hemp oil, the beauty industry is taking advantage of the opportunity. You can do the same at home by adding a few drops of hemp oil to your skin cream.
Hemp oil products are used in industry, in making paint and (dare I say it?) a ‘million’ other applications. And we seem to be finding new ones all the time. Watch this space for the latest updates.
