Hemp oil, CBD oil, and cannabis are some of the buzz words we’re hearing in conversations about our health these days. People are talking about the benefits of these products—not just for them but also their dogs. These benefits include everything from better sleep and less pain to a more positive mood, increased calm, and less anxiety.
A Brilliant New Hemp Oil from Standard Process
Standard Process has recently developed a legal hemp oil that’s brilliant in its design. A combination of three synergistic ingredients powerfully enhance the benefits of hemp oil while providing whole body nutritional support for modern health challenges: nongenetically engineered hemp oil, clean and sustainably harvested calamari oil, and the green food phytochemicals unique to the brassicas vegetables.
CBD, Hemp, Cannabis: What’s the Difference, and Is It Legal?
With no standard terminology, there is some confusion when it comes to defining these words. But it’s not the name of the oil that’s important. Rather, it’s the content of the oil. Products that contain less than 0.3 percent (that’s three tenths of one percent) of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are legal in all fifty states. THC is the psychoactive component of cannabis and comes from the leaves. Products containing more than 0.3 percent of THC are still considered a controlled substance and are illegal in many states.
Hemp oil containing less than 0.3 percent THC come from the stalk and seed of the cannabis plant, not the leaves. This oil is derived from hemp that is specifically grown with a lower concentration of THC and generally used for industrial purposes such as food, clothing, textiles, paper, and biodegradable plastics. (This was made legal in the 2018 Farm Bill.)
The THC content of SP Hemp Oil Complex is below the legal requirement of 0.3 percent. The negligible amount of THC in this product is quickly metabolized by the body and eliminated without any of the psychoactive effects, providing a safe, effective, legal hemp oil for adults and their canine companions.
Have you ever wondered why hemp oil is so beneficial for improving and maintaining good health? Archaeologists discovered evidence of hemp cultivation going back 8,000 years. It’s thought to be one of the earliest crops ever cultivated—possibly even the first. It may be the oldest industry known to humans. Some of the earliest written records of hemp use in herbal medicine can be traced to China nearly 5,000 years ago.
In the early 1990s, scientists made one of the greatest discoveries in health care—they found the endocannabinoid system in the human body. This discovery began to help us understand why hemp has been known for its powerful health benefits for so many thousands of years.
Evidence shows that the endocannabinoid system regulates various cellular, stress response, intestinal, and immune response functions to support physiological homeostasis in the body—from simple functions (sleeping, relaxing, and eating) to more complex functions (metabolism, neuroplasticity, and inflammatory processes).
Maintaining a well-balanced endocannabinoid system with a healthy lifestyle and a diet that includes supplements such as SP Hemp Oil Complex encourages favorable body system conditions, including the ability to manage metabolic stress and support overall health and well-being.
What Makes SP Hemp Oil Complex So Unique?
SP Hemp Oil Complex gives the body a remarkable edge when it comes to supporting a healthy inflammation response. As I mentioned above, this powerful formula is made of three synergistic ingredients: hemp oil, omega-3 oil, and brassica (TrueBroc).
Inflammation is helpful when we have an injury or trauma to the body, but it’s the inflammation response that cleans out the damaged tissues so the body can rebuild and repair. When diet, lifestyle, toxin buildup, and stress cause imbalances in various body systems, the inflammation response can become chronic and unhealthy, causing tissue to break down at a faster rate than it’s repaired.
Evidence has shown that chronic inflammation is at the root of many modern diseases. According to Harvard Health, this includes coronary artery disease, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
Creating a Healthy Inflammation Response
Two of the ingredients in SP Hemp Oil Complex amplify the ability of hemp oil to support a healthy inflammation response. Omega 3 oil—rich in EPA, DHA, and DPA fatty acids—enhances the uptake and benefits of hemp oil and also offers its own anti-inflammatory properties that contribute to balancing the inflammation response. These essential fatty acids support healthy inflammation processes by regulating various functions in the body, including immune, pulmonary, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems, yet most adults are deficient in them.
The TrueBroc provides the rich, sulfur-containing phytonutrients of cruciferous vegetables. This important green food supports the Nrf-2 pathways in cells that protect them from the toxic challenges of our modern world. A hundred years ago, radiation exposure, heavy metal toxicity, and harmful chemicals didn’t exist, so today our bodies need help dealing with the demands of modern life.

Hemp Oil Complex along with a healthy diet and lifestyle can offer great support for helping your body stay healthy and balanced with the stresses of modern life.
My Personal Experience with Hemp Oil Complex
I was excited to hear that Standard Process was adding this to their line of products this year. I wanted to try it myself after hearing what it does to support healthy inflammation response. In the past, I was seriously ill with lupus and other autoimmune diseases. Thankfully, I was able to beat them completely and make a full recovery with holistic therapies.
But it takes work to repair the damage those diseases caused me. A healthy diet and lifestyle, herbs, and nutritional supplements help keep the inflammation from coming back, which is especially important now that I’ve turned fifty this spring. I’m training hard in martial arts to make Third Degree Brown Belt in karate, and I’m definitely all about herbs and nutritional products that can provide support for healthy inflammation response. I want to be able to keep doing karate for the rest of my life!
I tried the Hemp Oil Complex, and I love it. It really does help me feel more balanced—less stress, a stronger ability to cope, calmer. I’m usually pretty upbeat anyways, but I’ve noticed even more of a positive mood since I started taking this product. I’m sleeping deeper, waking up less at night, and feeling more energized and refreshed in the morning. It will definitely be a part of my daily health routine from now on.
