cannabis oil vs hemp seed oil

Good Hemp has now launched a new range of Pure & lab tested CBD Oil on various flavours, such as citrus and peppermint!

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).

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.

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.

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 & CBD Oil Differences:

With the entourage effect, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You get the benefits of the entourage effect with full spectrum CBD oil but not with hemp seed oil.

Full spectrum CBD oil from NuLeaf Naturals is blended with pure, organic hemp oil, so you’re getting the best of both worlds. NuLeaf Naturals uses a two-part extraction process in creating CBD oil, which ensures the greatest benefit from the harvested plants.

CBD oil is currently unregulated. Marketers and manufacturers might use misleading labeling or claim unfound benefits on their products. Always read the ingredients list to be certain what you’re getting and ignore what the label says.

Industrial hemp is legal in the United States since the passing of the Farm Bill in 2018. This bill defines the hemp plant as the specific variety of Cannabis sativa L. with a THC concentration of 0.3 percent or less on a dry weight basis. Essentially, it’s legal to grow hemp as long as it doesn’t contain enough THC to have a psychoactive effect. But individual states make their own rules regarding the legalization of products, including CBD oil or hemp seed oil, derived from hemp.

Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has only approved one CBD product for medicinal use. Called Epidolex, it is used to treat a rare form of epilepsy that primarily affects children. However, that doesn’t mean there ample studies pointing towards its efficacy in support the body in other ways. A study in the European Journal of Pain, based on animal subjects, showed CBD reduced pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. And a survey of 5,000 people conducted by the Bright field Group found more than 60% of CBD users had taken it to relieve anxiety.

Here’s a guide to the basics of hemp oil, hempseed oil, and CBD.

So now you know what’s what when it comes to CBD oil, hempseed oil, and hemp oil. But the question remains, how do you know if you’re getting CBD oil or hemp oil without the CBD?
