Today we’re going to show you how to make DIY hemp milk at home.

Not only is it super fast and easy, but you can add ingredients to suit your personal taste preferences. Homemade hemp milk is a more economical option to store bought hemp milk, and you know exactly what is in it. Let’s make some hemp milk!

A kitchen counter covered with the ingredients to our DIY hemp milk including salt and hemp hearts.

DIY HEMP MILK RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup hemp hearts (hulled hemp seeds)
  • 3-4 cups of water (use less water for thicker, creamier milk!)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional ingredients: agave, pitted dates, maple syrup, or honey to sweeten. Use as little or as much as you want, based on how you want your hemp milk to taste.

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients into the blender and blend for 1-2 min.
  2. If you prefer smoother milk, you can strain through a nut bag or cheesecloth, otherwise just stir or shake before serving.
  3. Want flavored hemp milk? Try adding some cacao powder, vanilla, or a handful of your favorite berries!

Hemp vs. Marijuana: What’s The Difference Between Hemp & Marijuana?

Today we’re going to talk about Hemp vs. Marijuana. With the rising legalization of all forms of cannabis, things can get a little confusing sometimes.

I’m Jessica with Ministry of Hemp, America’s Leading Hemp Advocate.

Today we’re going to talk about hemp and marijuana. With the legalization of both of these industries, there’s a lot of information popping up, and with more information comes more MISinformation.

So today we’re gonna talk about how they are both similar and totally different! Let’s get to it.

HEMP VS. MARIJUANA: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? 

Classification

Cannabis is a family of plants with two primary classifications – indica and sativa. While marijuana can be a member of either the indica or sativa families, hemp is only a member of the cannabis sativa family.

Composition

Cannabis contains a variety of different cannabinoids. The two most dominant are tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, and cannabidiol, known as CBD. While both have been shown to have benefits to the human body, THC, has psychoactive effects, which means you “get high,” while CBD does not.

While hemp contains 0.3 percent THC or less, marijuana is abundant with THC, different strains can contain anywhere from 5-35 percent THC.

Usage

Marijuana is grown for medicinal and recreational purposes. Due to its psychoactive properties, marijuana is usually consumed by smoking, vaping or in edibles.

Hemp, on the other hand, has over 25,000 possible applications such as dietary supplements, skincare and body products, clothing and fabric, and even paper, construction, and fuel!

Legality

Hemp is legal to purchase in all 50 states and is legal to ship in the U.S.

Marijuana, however, is not legal in every state at this point. It’s still illegal in many states, some have only legalized medical marijuana, and some states have both legal medical and recreational marijuana.

Inesscents CBD Salvation | CBD Body Care Review (VIDEO)

Our video blogger Jessica reviewed three different products from Inesscents CBD: CBD Salvation Hot Freeze Skin Salve, CBD Salvation Balance Beauty Serum, and their just released Colloidal Oatmeal & Lavender Soap.

Today I’m going to be reviewing some products from Inesscents.

Inesscents was one of the first organic body companies in the country, started in 2000.

Inesscents has a variety of body care products including skin care, soaps, and relief & recovery salves. All of their products have ingredients that are sustainably harvested, organic, and fair trade certified.

Inesscents sent me three different products to try out: CBD Salvation Hot Freeze Skin Salve, CBD Salvation Balance Beauty Serum, and their just released Colloidal Oatmeal & Lavender Soap!

I have been testing these products out for about a month now and I gotta say, I’m impressed! Not only does the company have great business practices that I look for personally, such as ethically &  sustainably sourced ingredients, but they have formulated some really wonderful things with some of my favorite ingredients such as hemp oil, calendula, arnica, chamomile, helichrysum, frankincense. Just so much good stuff.

CBD SALVATION HOT FREEZE SKIN SALVE

I regularly use CBD topicals on my neck, shoulder, and back. I love topicals that have a cooling or warming sensation to them. The cooling effect is the most immediate and longest lasting. The cayenne in this gives it a nice subtle warming undertone that is really pleasant. I’ve been using this daily and it’s really nice and smells great too!

CBD SALVATION BALANCE BEAUTY SERUM

I use both jojoba and hemp oils regularly in my skin care routine,  so I started using this daily. It has so many amazing ingredients in it that I have used in my skincare, so having them all in one product is a nice serum packed full of goodness. Hemp is non-comedogenic and won’t clog your pores. You’ll really notice how much your skin soaks it all up and how hydrating it is! The calendula and chamomile are extremely soothing, and tamanu oil helps combat redness. This serum has a nice light herbal aroma that’s not strong at all and doesn’t linger on your face.

CBD SALVATION COLLOIDAL OATMEAL & LAVENDER SOAP

I was really excited to try this soap out. I have some areas of my skin that are more sensitive so I try to use soaps that have ingredients that are calming. Not only is the hemp oil in this great for so many things like rashes and dry skin, but the colloidal oatmeal and lavender are both really soothing ingredients. The soap has a very light natural lavender fragrance. Not too strong and definitely not an unnatural fragrance, it doesn’t linger on the skin which is also nice!

The Benefits Of Hemp Oil In Skin Care (VIDEO)

Today’s video is about using hemp oil in skin care. Hemp oil is filled with so many good for you vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.

Today’s video is about using hemp oil in skin care.

Today we’re going to talk about some of the ways hemp oil is one of the best things out there for your skin. Hemp oil is filled with so many good for you vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats such as: magnesium, potassium, Vitamin B1 & B2, Omega-3 & Omega-6 fatty acids, and Vitamin E. We benefit from all the good stuff found in hemp oil in two ways: by eating it and applying it to our skin. Without further ado, let’s find out some of the benefits of using hemp oil on your skin!

HEMP OIL WON’T CLOG YOUR PORES

Did you know that oils are rated on a scale of 0-5, 0 being non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores, and 5 being comedogenic, meaning it will clog your pores?

Coconut oil is rated a 4, this is an oil that is very likely to cause clogged pores. Meanwhile, rose hip oil is a 1 and hemp oil is rated a 0!

USING HEMP OIL IN SKIN CARE FOR CLEANSING

Since hemp oil won’t clog your pores, it works wonderfully as an oil cleanser. Simply rub 1 tablespoon of hemp oil into your skin, then cover with a hot washcloth to steam. Your skin will soak up any remaining oil and it will look plump and hydrated.

The fats, or lipids, in hemp oil are similar to the ones found in skin, making it an effective moisturizer and protector for our skin.

HEMP OIL TREATS SKIN CONDITIONS AND REDUCES SIGNS OF AGING

Hemp seed oil is made from the only edible seed that contains gamma-linolenic acid. This substance is needed to regulate hormone levels and it can diminish hormone related acne.

Psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acids and since hemp oil is chock full of these wonderful omegas, it’s very effective in treating psoriasis. It also hydrates and helps bring oxygen to your skin, making it an effective treatment for eczema, and dry, itchy skin.

Hemp oil fills skin with extra moisture and stimulates the natural production of collagen which helps fight fine lines and wrinkles, making this a really great anti-aging ingredient.
