Hemp oil for pain?

I haven't tried hemp oil because of availability but can get flax seed oil. I've had a mean cold for a couple of weeks now and it exacerbated my symptoms. My buddy bought some on a recommendation for skin health and gave me a bottle as well. After having a couple of teaspoons with all meals and a little more here and there I find a noticable calming of inflammation pain and a reduction in flu like symptoms. I'm going to keep taking it as I think we're all lacking in Omega 3 in our modern diet regardless of our health. The one I got is tasteless and goes down nicely.
