Since CBD-based products have been given the green light from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), consumers have become increasingly interested in the benefits of hemp and CBD products. But there’s much confusion as to whether CBD and hemp extract oils are the same.
Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Oil are very different products. They are each derived from different parts of the hemp plant, giving them different properties. Also, the extraction methods are very different.
What is Hemp Oil?
Hemp Seed Oil is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant, and it contains no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and very little to no CBD. However, it is rich in nutrients, fatty acids and other healthy components.
Hemp Seed Oil is not used recreationally, due to its low levels of CBD and non-existent THC. Its uses include:
- Nutritional supplements (omega-3, omega-6, gamma-linolenic acid, and more)
- Manufacturing clothing and fibers
What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is derived from the stalks, leaves and flowers of the hemp plant, and contains a much higher level of CBD, a compound with numerous health benefits.
There are three types of CBD oil on the market: Full-Spectrum CBD, Broad-Spectrum CBD and CBD oil made using CBD isolate.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
Full Spectrum CBD oil contains all compounds of the hemp and cannabis plants, and depending on how it is grown, may include low levels of THC. Some hemp growers, like ours, can produce Zero-THC Hemp Extract Oil, but to be safe you want to always read Certificates of Analysis if you are concerned about THC levels.
CBD oil is also used for:
- Preventing nausea and vomiting
- Epilepsy treatment
- Relieving depression and anxiety
- Addiction management
- Inflammatory skin conditions
In conclusion, although both are derived from the same plant, hemp seed oil and CBD oils are different products with different uses, but both are a great addition to a healthy life! If you’re looking for healing and medicinal benefits, then we suggest a full spectrum CBD oil.
