Hemp Oil vs CBD Oil vs Cannabis; What is the Difference?
Hemp Oil, CBD Oil, Cannabis Sativa, Industrial Hemp, Marijuana, Hemp Extract...Finally a simple description of each and their uses!
What is Cannabis:
Cannabis is the botanical name of a plant species. There are multiple strains of the Cannabis plant. One of the common strains is called Cannabis Sativa (industrial hemp), which is where we most sellers get Hemp and CBD Oil. Another common strain would be the Cannabis Indica (Marijuana). These are different plants, but both come from the same plant family. Industrial Hemp naturally produces higher levels of Cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Industrial Hemp is legal for cultivating in the USA according to the Farm Bill Act. Marijuana plants are just the opposite producing high levels of THC and lower levels of CBD. The legal status of Marijuana varies vastly from state to state.
What Is Hemp Oil:
If someone says they are selling Hemp Oil, they are probably referring to the oil that comes from the Cannabis Sativa plant seeds. The process of obtaining hemp oil is through a process called cold-pressing. By cold-pressing the hemp oil it helps maintain the integrity and pureness of the seed oil. You can tell if a hemp oil product is genuinely from the seeds because the ingredients will say hemp seed oil. Tests have shown that there are no cannabinoids (CBD & THC) present in the seeds of the hemp plant.
Hemp oil is a superfood and consumed for its high levels of Omegas naturally found in the oil. Hemp seed oil contains a 3:1 ratio of vitamins and other nutrients. Because of the omegas and vitamins, hemp oil may be excellent for general health.
What is CBD Oil:
CBD is a cannabinoid found in the Cannabis hemp plant leaves, stem, and flower. CBD is naturally found in many different plants but is more abundant in the Hemp plant. The human body even produces small trace amounts of CBD.
There are two methods of extracting CBD oil. One is by removing just the CBD and turning into an isolate. CBD isolate is the right choice if you want only the benefits of CBD. The other extraction method is known as full-spectrum CBD, and it is gathered through Co2 extraction. Full-spectrum CBD is pure oil from the cannabis plant leaves, stem, or flower. Full-spectrum is the preferred extraction because you get not only the benefits of CBD but also the other cannabinoids found in the plant.
How do you know if you are buying CBD oil? CBD oil goes by a few different names, but the most common alternative is Hemp Extract. If a product is not labeled CBD look for hemp extract listing or a product that has a milligram (mg) amount listed on the front of the product. We recommended that you check the ingredients for the term CBD or hemp extract.
