Thoughts? It was recommended for arthritis pain.

    Isn't Hempseed oil just plain old oil?

    I do hemp seeds, and I know Leanne Vogel of healthfulpursuit.com is a huge fan of using it in her recipes. I generally substitute with coconut oil or MCT as I wasn't ready for an added expense. What type of question are you asking??

    The hempseed oil, or hemp oil has been recommended as something that will help with arthritis pain and anxiety issues, but I have just read internet "research" and was searching for people who have tried it and have seen some benefits.

    Hempseed is one supplement I have never read about but did see it once in a health food store. I am interested in hearing personal experiences.

    I have never tried it but following...
    I take turmeric, Omega 3 fish oil and coconut oil and my joint pain is gone mostly. I can tell a difference if I miss a day.

    Hemp hearts (shelled seeds) themselves are seriously awesome - I sometimes add 55g to a salad if I don't feel like meat. Nutrition profile/my serving:
    340 cal
    28 g fat
    4g carb - 2g fibre
    17g protein

    Very creamy buttery tasting in a green grassish sort of way, hard to explain, but I really think they are tasty (I also have garlic roasted whole seeds that are more like tiny garlicky nuts - I crunch down as a snack).
    Don't know if they help the arthritis or not but I don't seem to have too much problem with mine (neck and low back and ankle from accidents). I tried the usual MSM Glucosamine, Chondroitin and they didn't do anything for me. I do take other supplements though.
