CBD Oil vs. Hemp Seed Oil - What is the Difference?
Thursday, October 22, 2020
When we talk about hemp there are two oils you see these days and it can be confusing what the difference is: hemp oil, or hemp seed oil, versus CBD oil. Let’s start with hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil also known as Hemp oil has been around for many years, you may have seen it in the health food stores. Yes, it comes from the cannabis plant, no it does not have THC in it, and it is only derived from the seed by a cold press method. It is kind of like the way you get olive oil from olives or flax seed oil from flax seeds, but the processes are slightly different. It is used for its essential fatty acid content since it is high in omega 6 and 9 which promotes healing for inflammation internally as well as topically.
CBD oil vs hemp seed oil can be easily differentiated because CBD oil does not come from the seed and is derived from mostly the flowers and other parts of the plant which need to be extracted out of it by a different process usually ethanol or CO2. CBD oil is a natural occurring chemical compound where the THC is less than .03% and does not give any psychoactive effects, including terpenes that the body responds to more immediately (the entourage effect)(1), including promoting healing for inflammation, digestion, anxiety, focusing, skin healing and much more as research develops.
