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:

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.

Kit O’Connell On The 2018 Farm Bill, The FDA, & Nebraska Hemp Arrests

Ministry of Hemp Editor in Chief Kit O’Connell appeared on the CBD Talk Podcast to talk about the 2018 Farm Bill and other recent CBD news. Find CBD Talk on your favorite podcast apps!

Ministry of Hemp Editor in Chief Kit O’Connell spoke with Dawn Peacock, host of CBD Talk Podcast about recent hemp news in the U.S., including the 2018 Farm Bill. The Farm Bill, recently signed into law, fully legalizes industrial hemp in the United States.

While the Farm Bill represents a huge win for hemp advocates, there’s still more to do before hemp and CBD are fully accessible to everyone. A recent FDA statement about CBD’s legality after the Farm Bill has left people confused and concerned about the supplement’s future in the U.S. Dawn and Kit talk about what the memo really means, and why it could show the FDA is actually warming up to CBD.

In addition to the video above, this episode of CBD Talk is available as an audio file on Soundcloud:

Hemp Is Back In America: An Introduction To Ministry Of Hemp (Video)

After decades of prohibition, hemp is back in a big way in America. In 2017, sales of hemp products reached a record-breaking $820 million, and that’s just the beginning

After decades of prohibition, hemp is back in a big way in America.

In 2017, sales of hemp products reached a record-breaking $820 million, and that’s just the beginning. Currently legal under state programs, hemp could soon be fully legal from coast to coast, transforming American agriculture.

From hemp food to hempcrete homes to textiles, the uses of hemp are almost limitless.

Among hemp products, demand for CBD oil has exploded in recent years. Unlike THC or marijuana, CBD won’t make you feel high. Thousands of people report CBD helps them relax, relieves pain and anxiety, promotes deeper sleep, and much more.

CBD Myths vs. Facts: The Truth About Hemp-Derived CBD (VIDEO)

Despite its popularity, there are still myths and misconceptions around hemp-derived CBD oil. Our latest video takes a look at the truth behind 5 CBD myths.

CBD myths continue to proliferate despite the growing popularity of this beneficial nutritional supplement.

Hemp’s popularity is booming in America, and thousands of people have discovered the benefits of CBD. However, a great deal of stigma and confusion remain. In our latest video, we take a look at 5 common myths about CBD.

  • CBD Myth #1: CBD will get you high.

Hemp is not marijuana. Hemp-derived CBD products have less than 0.3% THC and will not result in feelings of intoxication. While it’s possible to have side effects from CBD, as long as you use a quality CBD tincture, these are rare and usually minimal.

  • CBD Myth #2: Urinalysis tests only test for THC.

While hemp extracts predominantly contain CBD, they are not completely THC free. It is possible to fail a drug test from taking CBD supplements.

  • CBD Myth #3: You need THC to activate CBD.
Despite its growing popularity, there are still myths and misconceptions around hemp-derived CBD oil. Our latest video takes a look at the truth behind 5 CBD myths.

Despite its growing popularity, there are still myths and misconceptions around hemp-derived CBD oil. Our latest video takes a look at the truth behind 5 CBD myths.

Hemp contains numerous naturally occurring compounds, called cannabinoids, that interplay to create beneficial effects. CBD can work alone, but when it interacts with other cannabinoids to greater effect, this is known as the “entourage effect.”

  • CBD Myth #4: Hemp-derived CBD is not as effective as CBD from marijuana.

CBD is CBD, no matter the original source. The human body does not recognize whether CBD is sourced from medical cannabis or hemp.

CBD Myth #5: CBD Products are illegal since they come from cannabis.

According to the analysis of numerous hemp experts, the 2014 Farm Bill and other laws and precedents make it legal to possess and distribute CBD oil in the U.S.

Hemp Beer Goes Nationwide: New Belgium Launches The Hemperor (VIDEO)

Last month, we got to attend a special tasting of a unique new hemp beer, and talk to part of the team behind its creation. “We finally brought together hemp and hops,” said Steve Navas, brand activation manager for New Belgium, when describing The Hemperor.

Last month, we got to try a unique new hemp beer and talk to part of the team behind it.

“We finally brought together hemp and hops,” said Steve Navas, brand activation manager for New Belgium Brewing.

The private bar in downtown Austin where the tasting took place was filled with the incredible smell of The Hemperor hemp pale ale. As we spoke with Navas, the sounds of local bluegrass band Steel Betty tickled our ears.

Over the past few months, New Belgium has traveled the USA sharing their new hemp beer, The Hemperor.

“We’re one of the first breweries to be able to nationally roll out a beer like this,” Navas told us. “This is two years in the making.”

As for The Hemperor? We thought it was delicious. Here’s how we described this hemp beer in our official Hemperor review:

Wow! Powerful green hemp aroma from this pale ale. The hemp adds a nutty, smooth flavor that balances out the hops, especially in comparison to most IPAs. This beer is sweet with a very mild bitter aftertaste.

You can also feel good about your purchase, because one dollar from every bottle sold goes to support hemp legalization. Keep an eye out for The Hemperor at a store near you.
