Hemp oil vs CBD oil, is there a difference?
This is a common question asked by those who are new to the world of CBD’s, the quick answer is yes, there is a huge difference! So let us break it down so we can see what the main differences between these two amazing oils are.
Hemp oil derives from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. The seeds do not contain any amount of CBD, however they still have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds that have great overall health benefits.
CBD oil derives from the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant. This is where the concentration of CBD comes from and it’s the CBD, which brings the additional health benefits that you simply will not find in hemp oil.
So what’s the difference between the benefits of hemp oil and CBD oil?
Hemp oil is rich in omegas with a nearly perfect balance of omega 3 to omega 6, iron, vitamin E, and all of the essential amino acids. For this reason, hemp seeds are considered the most nutritionally complete food source in the world.
CBD oil can be used to help with a number of different conditions such as anxiety, depression and muscle pain to name a few. It is said to have beneficial effects on concentration, energy levels as well as sleep.
What’s our verdict?
Quite simply, we love both oils! They both bring a variety of benefits that can be used to help improve your everyday life. For this reason, our full spectrum oil contains both organic, vegan friendly cold pressed CBD and hemp.
There are many CBD’s oils that use a binding oil such as MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) or olive oil. We believe that using hemp oil as the binding oil for our full spectrum CBD ensures that the product is as close to the way nature intended it to be and provides you with the maximum bioavailability from your CBD.
