Knowing the difference is important!
CBD oil and hemp oil are not the same. Since CBD products are popping up everywhere it is important to know the difference, and read the labels. Many CBD products do not even contain CBD.
Hemp oil is made by cold compressing hemp seeds. The seeds of a hemp plant do not contain CBD. Hemp oil contain protein, and the health fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, which are good for you. Bu hemp oil is not CBD.
The difference is important because CBD oil has benefits such as decreasing swelling, decreasing pain, balancing mood swings and helping with a good night sleep. These benefits will be lacking if your CBD product doesn’t contain CBD or is diluted.
So when looking at the label keep the following in mind:
Just like with food, less ingredients are better. Look for CBD in a carrier such as hemp oil. You will have the benefits of CBD with the added benefits of hemp oi.
Make sure the CBD product you’re buying really contains CBD. Look for the word “cannabidiol” in the ingredients. Ask questions.
Look for products that have been third party tested. Third party testing looks for traces of heavy metals, pesticides and solvents that pose risk to consumers. CBD imported from outside the United States have a greater chance of containing heavy metals and pesticides. Ask question, find out where the hemp was grown.
Look for non-GMO and grown using organic methods.
Hope this helps to clear up any confusion about CBD oil and hemp oil. Feel free to comment or email any questions.
