hemp oil extract cbd

CBD oil has more to offer than hemp extract and hemp oil requires a more complex and expensive manufacturing process. This is a bit like comparing ground beef to filet mignon – they come from the same place, but the process of obtaining each (and the consumer use) are very different.

You can buy hemp extract most anywhere you can find essential oils (because that’s what it really is): natural food stores, some pharmacies and groceries, and online.

What’s the difference in how hemp extract and CBD oil are made?

Hemp extract is made by extracting oil from raw hemp seeds. CBD oil uses a more complex extraction multi-step process that uses more of the full plant. Hemp oil extraction is simple and relatively inexpensive, whereas CBD oil CO2 extraction takes longer and requires highly specialized equipment and training.

CBD oil contains many beneficial cannabinoids, which are lacking in hemp extract.

Yes. Both are derived from the cannabis plant but from different parts of that plant. Hemp extract is the oil pressed from raw hemp seeds, whereas CBD oil comes from the flowers, leaves, stems, and stalks of the mature plant.

When considering the differences between hemp oil and CBD oil, it’s good to look at the broader picture. Both marijuana and hemp are varieties of the cannabis plant (hemp is Cannabis sativa , while marijuana is Cannabis indica ). The main difference between hemp and marijuana is that while marijuana contains up to 30% of the psychoactive compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), hemp contains virtually none (typically below 0.3%). So essentially, marijuana will get you high and hemp won’t.

It depends on what you are using it for, as both have properties that serve different purposes. Hemp oil typically has more nutritional benefits, while CBD oil is best for treating the conditions we mentioned above (anxiety and depression). And, when it comes to hemp oil and CBD oil for pain relief, CBD oil wins (although hemp oil can help as well).

Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that many experts believe aid good brain and heart health as well as boosting circulation and the immune system. Gamma linolenic acid (or GLA) is part of the omega-6 family and is known for its role in easing the symptoms of PMS and supporting the growth of healthy skin, hair and nails. Meanwhile omega-9 plays a role in promoting heart health by supporting balanced cholesterol levels and improving immune function.
