I am wondering if you can get addicted to a product called Elixinol, it is a hemp oil and coconut extract combination made up of hemp seeds and stalks?

I am wondering if you can get addicted to a product called Elixinol, it is a hemp oil and coconut extract combination made up of hemp seeds and stalks?

Not very likely: At least from a physical dependency point of view. Hemp oil and similar products have a lot of CBD (cannabinodiol), which actually has actions which are pretty much the opposite of THC, and are not thought to be able to produce physical dependency. However, physical dependency is not a necessary component for having addiction (better termed now a severe substance use disorder). Why the concern? Read more

Using benzoyl peroxide for acne can I use hemp seed oil as moisturiser after benzoyl peroxide to stop excessive dryness? Don't won't to clog pores

Dry skin: One of the treatment to improve acne is actually to get the skin to be dryer. If you moisturize too much the skin, you will still have acne. Try to see if you can back off a little your benzoyl peroxide to get less dryness. Hope this helps. Read more

Can hemp seeds help heal your wounds?

Can hemp seeds help heal your wounds?

Simple healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. Read more

What are the health effects of smoking hemp oil (not cannabis)?

What are the health effects of smoking hemp oil (not cannabis)?

Hard to say: There have been a number of recent reviews of potential effects from the higher levels of cannabidiol (not THC) in hemp oils, and how they might have anti-tumor effects, anti-convulsant effects particularly in some refractory childhood forms of epilepsy, as well as effects for treatment of neuropathic pain and muscle spasm. However as with THC there is uncertainty in dosing, purity, other issues. Read more

Is it safe to take olanzapine and cbd hemp oil?

Is it safe to take olanzapine and cbd hemp oil?

No data available: It is hard to trust the website that says that cbd hemp oil has no psycho active properties and then goes on to list a broad range of psycho active effects. Until there is adequate medical research done, I would discourage you from using this product if you are taking zyprexa (olanzapine). Best wishes.

My mum has a diabetic ulcer on her leg should we try hemp seeds to help heal it?

Diabetic foot: There are many avenues to seek help: your primary care physician can evaluate you and refer you on; a wound care specialist in a wound center; or a podiatrist that has an interest in wounds are your best choices. But do not hesitate! Seek help as soon as possible as foot ulcers in diabetics can get serious very quickly. Hemp seeds will only delay a healing process. Read more

On synthroid 125 mcg 25 days now. Alternate 1 tbsp. Of chia & hemp seeds to oatmeal mornings. Would it interfere with med? I feel burning feet today

Burning feet: I don't think the burning feet is related to synthroid. If I read this correctly you report that you have Synthroid 125 mcg but state you have no medication.
It is probably time to see your Primary doctor.

Hope all goes well! Read more
