We have refuted the top 5 myths about cannabis

Around hemp and products made from it, there is a series of myths and half-truths. It is possible to use hemp in cosmetics had a positive test for the presence of THC in the body, and so came to be a driver's license? We can be allergic to hemp oil? These and other questions we asked Ing. Tomas borne by the company Pharma Future, which among other things develops and manufactures cosmetics from hemp.

Myth 1: Cannabis is always illegal

At present, we can distinguish three situations in which cannabis appears. The first is its use as a recreational marijuana. Growing hemp, which contains more than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is illegal and carries him next financial penalties and prison sentences. For your own use is legal to hold an amount not greater than small. Since August last year due to the intervention of the Constitutional Court in the Criminal Code is not clear exactly how many grams it is.
The second situation in which cannabis plays a role, its gradual partial legalization for medical use. There is still moving at a theoretical level, in practice the law was not yet given. Finally, thirdly, we have hemp in cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical industries. In this case, however, are those plants whose THC content is less than 0.3%. Cultivation and processing of such cannabis is completely in accordance with the laws of our country, it is also possible to trade with impunity with these products and keep them.

Myth 2: The prolonged use of hemp cosmetics arises drug resistance

Cosmetics Hemp contains hemp oil, which is one of the most valuable oils of vegetable origin. Carries in itself is up to 80% unsaturated fatty acids that the human body needs for normal functioning. Our body is unable to produce itself, so we must receive from external sources. But all the same to them can not become resistant. For this reason, it is very unlikely that we would stop hemp cosmetics act, as happens with many other cosmetic products.

Myth 3: Cannabis has no beneficial health effects

Cannabis itself has antibacterial and soothing effect on the skin. A high proportion of said fatty acids enhances the barrier function of the skin and relieving joint pain problems. Hemp oil well worth increasing the content of ceramides, thus special fats that regulate the hydration of the skin and hair. If skin contains ceramides little dries, itches, is red and sensitive. They can also occur on the various forms of eczema and other skin diseases. To ensure ceramides hair strength, elasticity and shine. The hemp oil can also find cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD), which has anti-inflammatory. Well known is the antioxidant property of hemp, which is used to suppress the manifestations of aging, but also is widely used in pharmaceuticals for treating Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Crohn's disease, as well as myocardial infarction, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Myth 4: hemp oil may rise to allergies

The chance of developing an allergy to preparations of cannabis is very low. Respectively, the more likely an allergic reaction to other component product than just the hemp oil. Cosmetic products are due to its properties to the skin than our body friendly and do not produce any side load. Hemp oil is completely safe and for that reason it is possible to use them as well as children and pregnant and lactating women. Topical application of hemp oil is the world extensively used as an adjunct therapy in patients with atopic eczema, psoriasis or acne. Hemp therefore not cause allergies, on the contrary, is used to care for sensitive skin or skin with allergic manifestations.

Myth 5: When using hemp cosmetics will test for the presence of THC in the body positive

It is of course nonsense. As I have already said hemp seeds, all of which are pressed hemp oil, do not contain THC in more than trace amounts (in the order of 0.00001% THC). Essentially, you have almost zero content psychotropic substances and can act as a drug. It is not necessary when using cosmetics from hemp worry that the results of that test positive.
