Study shows that hemp seed oil can be effective …

A study published in the “Journal of Dermatological Treatment” has demonstrated that oral consumption of hemp seed oil …

The study compared the use of hemp seed oil and olive oil in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. A group of 20 people were divided randomly, then instructed to consume 30ml (2 tablespoons) of oil each day. The patients were overseen by a dermatologist, as well as meeting with a nutrition prior to the study. They also kept a food diary to track their intake.

“All patients responded to a simple questionnaire to determine their perception of changes in skin dryness and itchiness throughout the study period, using a rating scale from 0 (no dryness or itching) to 5 (severe dryness or itching, sleep disturbance). Use of any dermal medication was also rated on a similar scale: 0 (no medication) and 5 (regular usage). The permeability barrier function of skin was determined by measuring transepidermal water loss (TEWL) with a VapoMeter.”
