Hemp Oil – Benefits and More

For a variety of years, eastern cultures used hemp for different health issues. Unfortunately, the use of marijuana is not as widespread in America due to negative stigma and association— but this changes quickly as more and more people learn the facts about the plant, in particular because it does not contain THC (a psychoactive marijuana component). This growth of education and awareness has led to a rise in the popularity of CBD and hemp in recent years and is expected to continue to grow on the market.

The cannabis sativa and hemp derive from the same species! The only difference is that a Cannabis sativa plant must contain a minimum of 0.3 percent THC to be described as hemp. So how is hemp oil, hemp seed oil, CBD oil, and cannabis oil differing?

Hemp Oil - This product was taken from a hemp plant's stalk mainly because of its CBD content. It needs less than 0.3% of THC legally.

Hemp Seed Oil - It is oil extracted from seeds of hemp. Hemp seed oil does not contain much or no THC or CBD but is extracted from its healthy fatty acid profile.

CBD Oil - CBD oil is made from Cannabis sativa or hemp and made from the entire plant, including the blooming portion, in States where cannabis is legal. CBD oil must be made from hemp where cannabis is illegal, meaning the stalks of the hemp plant.

Cannabis Oil - This oil comes from Cannabis sativa plants with different concentrations of CBD and THC. The clear disadvantage of cannabis oil is that it is not possible to buy outside a state where cannabis sales have not been legalized. The amount of THC is some cannabis oil may also be higher, which could pose a problem for people not seeking the psychoactive effects of cannabis oil, so read labels and consult with product experts.
