How To Manage Side Effects of Chemo With Hemp Essential Oils
Updated: May 17, 2019
The side effects of chemotherapy are different for every person. Anticipating and managing side effects can help to minimize their severity and improve quality of life. TheraEssentials created a line of hemp essential oil roll-ons to easily help in controlling the negative effects of chemotherapy. Each roll-on is specifically formulated to aid with the relief of sleeplessness, stress, nausea, or headaches caused by chemotherapy.
Hemp oil is from the Cannabis Sativa Plant but only the Hemp seed is cold pressed. It is sometimes called “Hemp Seed Oil”. It is very beneficial containing a lot of antioxidants and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Since it mainly is pressed from the seeds it does not contain the same cannabinoids found in medicinal cannabis oils which are extracted from the whole plant. Many use this oil as a CARRIER oil for CBD and essential oils, along with skin care.
Hemp essential oil is also known as Cannabis Essential Oil. It is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the Cannabis Sativa Plant. It is not the same as the Hemp Oil. When it is steam distilled the THC component is non-volatile, which means it does not carry over into the distillation process, however, since it is steam distilled like other essential oils, it primarily consists of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. Terpenes are responsible for properties being anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and analgesic. 0% THC & 0% CBD
The reason hemp essential oil is so effective is because it contains Powerful Terpenes that are known to be Anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and analgesic. So when the cannabis essential oil is blended with other essential oils, it maximizes the potency of healing benefits. It is the King of essential oils!
There are many different essential oils on the market today. TheraEssentials is organic and created with the cancer patient in mind. None of the ingredients will counter the chemotherapy treatment. The roll-ons are created to help soothe harsh reactions chemotherapy can cause.
