Hemp Oil Vs CBD Oil

For a lot of people, CBD oils are those ‘cannabis oils’ people buy – hemp is cannabis so they must be also CBD oils? Right?

Well, a Hemp Oil (or hemp seed oil) is derived from the Hemp seeds which are made of up to 75% edible oil. They contain a fantastic array of healthy fats and in itself has a wide range of wellbeing benefits. Most of the time, Hemp seed oils do not contain a meaningful amount of Cannabinoids- it is simply a natural oil that is derived from the seeds of the plant. Hemp oil has been available in health food shops, and are now all the rage online. Hemp seed oils are sold as a food supplement (in capsules/ dropper bottles) or as a beauty product and are fairly cheap (at least much cheaper than a CBD oil)

‘CBD oil’ refers to a substance that contains a large amount of the Cannabinoid CBD– which is one of the main active ingredients derived from the Cannabis/ Hemp leaves and flowers. CBD oil can be produced using pretty much any edible oil, which is why there is so much variety.CBD oils are produced using an MCT oil which has been derived from Coconut. There are other brands that use Olive Oil, Sunflower or Vegetable to produce their oils. Often ‘CBD oils’ require a process of Co2 extraction (to extract the active cannabinoids & other valuable phytochemicals) and decarxylation (to turn the raw cannabinoids like CBDa, into CBD).

So, Hemp Oil can be a CBD oil, so long as it actually contains CBD. Most of the really cheap ‘CBD’ oils may just be hemp oil
