Hemp Oil Can Lower Your Cholesterol According to a New Medical Study

According to the Centers for Disease Control, a little over more than half of the American adult population are medicating with cholesterol-lowering drugs.

And while high cholesterol is a problem usually associated with the obese or elderly, the truth is that a worrisome population of adults aged 20 and up already have elevated cholesterol levels. It’s far too easy to get high cholesterol given the standard American diet, which is loaded in sugars, saturated fats, and trans fats.

For people who have high cholesterol, the road to recovery can be long and taxing. Lifestyle changes are necessary, as well as exercise and medication. Statins are the first course of action medication for controlling cholesterol levels, and they work by slowing cholesterol production from the liver. However, like with other pharmaceutical drugs, statins have side effects such as muscle damage and pain, liver damage, neurological effects, and an increased risk for diabetes.

Now, there are studies showing that hemp oil can help. Read the full article that takes a deep dive into the studies and discusses the specific benefits of hemp oil at Cannabis.net.
