What are the physical and emotional benefits of using hemp oil for women? Medical research and many anecdotal reports are showing that hemp oil can be used for several different conditions that disproportionately affect women, including breast cancer, autoimmune diseases, anxiety disorders and premenstrual syndrome. We hope you enjoy!

Breast Cancer

Cancer affects millions of Americans every year, and breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer. One in every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Luckily, with regular breast cancer screenings, the chance of catching it early can be greatly increased. A promising study conducted in 2015 showed how hemp oil could kill breast-cancer cells while sparing healthy cells. Hemp oil is by no means a first-line treatment, but considering it is nontoxic, and that it also has been proven to minimize the discomfort of chemotherapy and radiation, it’s definitely something that has helped thousands of women get by — including our founder and CEO Jenny Argie.

Autoimmune Diseases

One in every five adults in the United States suffer from an autoimmune diseases — a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the body. 75% of those sufferers are women. Common autoimmune diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, lupus, celiac disease, and type 1 diabetes. Several different studies have show how hemp oil can be used to decrease pain associated with arthritis. Others have shown more generally how hemp oil reduces inflammation,which is almost always associated with autoimmune diseases.

Anxiety Disorders

You may already know of the incredible promise being shown by hemp oil for anxiety disorders. You may not know that women suffer from anxiety disorders at twice the rate of men. Several different studies, as well as countless anecdotes from hemp oil users, have shown that hemp oil reduces anxiety in a number of different specific situations, from public speaking to social settings.

Premenstrual Pain

Hormonal shifts affect some women worse than others. To a sizeable minority of unlucky women, premenstrual syndrome is downright debilitating. New research suggests that hemp oil could serve as an effective treatment for multiple symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. In fact, it’s been found that hemp oil was been used to treat menstrual disorders in China as early as 2700 B.C.
