As more and more people learn about hemp oil and hear all the hubbub about its benefits, a wide range of folks are giving it a try. We decided to take a sampling of what kind of people are using hemp oil and what they’re using it for. When you really sit down and take a look, the reach of hemp oil is pretty darn vast - you might be surprised!

The Elderly

Aging and illness isn’t always as graceful as we’d like it to be, and the elderly are often struggling with an assortment of challenges. A growing number of our elderly who are having a hard time getting around or are bedridden for various reasons are trying hemp oil with cannabinoids. Due to difficult side effects, some elderly people are replacing narcotic medication with hemp oil. We absolutely love seeing so many of our baby boomers taking a look at what hemp oil can do for them.

Students

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the number of students projected to attend American colleges and universities in fall 2018 is 19.9 million. Our student population is typically required to sit for long periods of time and to sustain focus for both class time and assignments, many of them pushing themselves even further working one or more jobs, raising families, and managing their home lives. We’re hearing about students who are turning to hemp oil with cannabinoids for support in keeping on top of all these tasks.

Food Industry Workers

People who work in the food industry in jobs such as bartenders, cooks, wait staff, sandwich artists, and more are required to stand for long periods of time, lift heavy items, and work at a fast pace. Any number of side effects show up after working in these demanding jobs, and many in the food industry are checking out what hemp oil with cannabinoids can do for them. In the fast-paced food industry, it’s common to require drug tests for employees. This can make it difficult for food industry workers to take opioid medications without repercussion. The good news is that hemp oil with cannabinoids contains less than 0.3% THC making it unlikely to fail a drug test with moderate use.

Physical Laborers

Construction workers, landscapers, electricians, telecommunications workers, and more are another huge category of people who are experimenting with hemp oil. These hard workers are performing moderate to intense physical labor building our homes, beautifying our yards, and keeping us connected every day. Lifting, carrying, and working in rugged conditions exposes these workers to repetitive injury, strain, and various kinds of pains. Hemp oil is helpful to this large group as there are very few likely side effects that would interfere with job safety and job quality.   

Pet Owners

Humans aren’t the only ones exploring the use of hemp oil with cannabinoids. Our fur babies are getting their own experience with hemp oil too. Plenty of animals experience their own physical and emotional challenges and their loving owners have begun giving them hemp oil in a few different ways. One college student rubbed it on her dogs belly after he injured his foot. A day care provider gives it to her dog when it’s time to trim their nails in hopes of avoiding a ‘wig out.’ Helping our animal companions is a wonderful way to experiment with hemp oil.

Everyone Else

We’ve heard from so many people such as mothers and grandmothers, behavioral specialists, social workers, landscape architects, benefits specialists, software technicians, day care providers, artists, and tons more who are experimenting with hemp oil. Reasons for exploring hemp oil use are far and wide, ranging from physical conditions related to inflammation and circulation, body pains, sleep issues, injuries to things like appetite, nightmares, negative self-talk, and general well-being.

Functional Remedies is excited to hear more and more about who our customers are, what they do in their lives, how they use hemp oil, and what types of results they find.
