With cannabis legalization increasing across the world, there’s a wide range of cannabis derived products finding their way to the market. Examining the difference between hemp-based products and CBD is not always easy. It’s likely that you’ve noticed the multiple varieties, such as hemp seed oil and CBD oil. Most of the time these products are thought to be the same but they are actually different.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil is produced from seeds of a hemp plant and it’s mostly designed as a dietary product. The ingredients include omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and it’s extremely beneficial for moisturizing the skin, improving gastrointestinal conditions, and promoting heart health.
CBD oil is a product derived from the flowers and leaves of a hemp plant. In order to produce the oil, the leaves are shocked and dried and the material is put into various oils and beneficial compounds. There is no THC in CBD oil and it’s beneficial for sleep support, focus and more.
Marijuana is made from the leaves that drive cannabis plants. Marijuana produces a psychoactive effect and is beneficial for improving mood, maximizing sleep, appetite, reducing swelling, reducing anxiety and more. Marijuana is usually added into various products as an edible, smoked, or vaped as a dry herb.
Even though the products all sound very closely related, the compounds involved and the materials that the body is accessing from each can be extremely different. Making sure that you’re getting a product which is pure and laboratory tested is important in each case. It’s usually best to choose a quality marijuana producer of verified CBD product or a hemp seed oil that is organic.
