You can take CBD oil topically, or you can ingest it or take it under the tongue. When choosing a CBD oil, do not be swayed to select purely on cost, as this is one industry where you get what you pay for.
Hemp oil or hempseed oil is what it sounds like: oil that’s been extracted from the seeds of the industrial hemp variety of the cannabis sativa plant. To extract the oil, hemp seeds are pressed and bottled or further processed and refined before bottling. Hemp oil is rich in omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and protein.
With surging interest in CBD since the U.S. Farm Bill passed in late 2018, you may be curious about the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil. Unheard of only a few years ago, both hemp and CBD oil are proliferating store shelves, but there are significant differences between these two products.
Reading Hemp Oil and CBD Oil Labels
Why does it matter? The entourage effect is the belief that the different compounds of the cannabis plant work better when they’re used together compared to being used individually. The terpenes help the cannabinoids achieve their best effects; the cannabinoids help other cannabinoids – everything works together harmoniously.
Hemp oil has many unique benefits but cannot give you the same as CBD oil thanks to the entourage effect. It is manufactured only from the seeds of the cannabis sativa plant, while full spectrum CBD oil uses the entire plant from stem to leaf for production.
Hemp oil should always use hemp seed oil as the active ingredient, while CBD oil should list cannabidiol, full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD, hemp (not hempseed), or phytocannabinoid-rich CBD as its primary ingredient.
Choose CBD oil that is pure, organic, and full spectrum. Be sure to check out the company’s lab-verified test results. You can access NuLeaf Naturals’ most recent test results here.
Good Hemp has now launched a new range of Pure & lab tested CBD Oil on various flavours, such as citrus and peppermint!
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).

CBD can be extracted from both marijuana and hemp. However, as marijuana is illegal in most places, much of the CBD you’ll find on the market is made from hemp.
Good Hemp’s hemp oil is super-rich in omegas (otherwise known as good fat) and has 25 times more omegas than olive oil. It has absolutely no trans fats (and 40% less saturated fats than olive oil).
CBD is available mostly in oil form, which is extracted from the hemp plant and then mixed with a ‘carrier’ oil. In this article we will explain how the Grass & Co. CBD Oil is made, outlining the range of processes involved in cultivating, extracting, and refining CBD oil.
Grass and Co.’s range of CBD products are made using narrow spectrum CBD distillate and isolate, rather than full spectrum CBD. This ensures that each product has the correct amount of the highest quality CBD, whereas full spectrum CBD can often contain trace levels of THC. Narrow spectrum CBD isolate and distillate offer an improved taste and flavour, helping our customers incorporate CBD into their daily rituals.
Cultivating The Hemp Plant
As Grass & Co. are committed to delivering the best quality CBD Oil to our customers, we have discovered that alcohol (IPA) is the most effective solvent to use to ensure complete consistency during the extraction process.
The most common method for extracting CBD is ‘CO2 extraction,’(supercritical carbon dioxide). This method uses a closed-loop extractor, a system for extracting essential oils for perfumes, as well as creating food additives. The hemp is placed in a chamber which is then filled with carbon dioxide. By applying pressure to the chamber, the carbon dioxide is turned to liquid, which then absorbs the hemp’s oils and flavours. The end result is a liquid consisting of both carbon dioxide and CBD. This liquid is then pumped into a final chamber where the carbon dioxide is turned into gas.
The benefits of using IPA when creating clean and compliant CBD products are numerous. IPA consistently delivers high quality, pure CBD within the highest production standards. It offers an excellent safety profile and multiple medical uses, as well as being used in many health and beauty products. This extraction method plays a key role in determining the type and relative quantities of the extractable plant components that need to be removed during the purification process.
