Hemp Uses and NORML Gathering

I have started using hemp oil in many of my soaps and all of my lip balms. The oil contains high levels of essential fatty acids including linolenic acid which aids skin healing. It is quickly absorbed and highly moisturizing making it a good ingredient for all types of products for dry skin.
There is still quite a bit of resistance from many about using a product containing hemp in spite of its long history of being a useful herb for textiles, skin preparations and food for livestock. If you would like more information about the history and uses for hemp visit the NORML at CCSU website. They will also be holding an informational gathering on April 20th at Central Connecticut State University.
