A lot of buzzes, as well as confusion, have been circulating pure hemp oil and its derivative – CBD. This is mainly due to the constant amendments being made regarding the laws governing the use of CBD. The use of hemp plants in the textile industry is well known. Recent innovations paved the way for hemp-based products to enter the field of health and wellness industry as well. To cater to the needs of pure hemp oil customers, a lot more variants of the product are being introduced to the market.
Is it right for you? Is there a difference between CBD and hemp? Come on, let us find out.
CBD Vs Hemp
CBD or a full-spectrum CBD hemp extract is extracted from whole hemp plants using a method of extraction that makes use of high pressure. On the contrary, hemp or hemp seed oil is extracted from pressing agricultural hemp seeds. The former contains CBD and even the stalks, buds, and leaves of the plant are rich in the non-psychoactive component called cannabidiol (CBD). On the other hand, CBD is absent in the case of the oil extracted from pressing hemp seeds.
The hemp seed oil contains fatty acids such as omega 3 and 6 in 3:1 ration. Additionally, it also contains gamma-linolenic acid, oleic acid, and stearidonic acid. In the case of a full spectrum CBD hemp extract, it contains plant terpenes, flavonoids, phytocannabinoids, and lastly, fatty acids. It facilitates the overall wellbeing of its customers.
Talking about the legality of the use of the product, since it contains less than 0.3% of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol); both products are legal. The absence of THC in these products ensures one thing and that, it is safe for consumption.
Here are a few of the CBD hemp oil benefits.
By interacting with the neurons present in the human endocannabinoid system, it facilitates the stimulation of several bodily functions.
The anti-inflammatory traits present in hemp extracts provide faster pain relief than a majority of the prescription drugs you buy normally.
As we know, the extract contains fatty acids such as omega 3 and omega 6. This helps rejuvenate skin and also protect it from several signs of aging.
I sincerely hope that you will not fall for false claims regarding hemp extracts in the future. Always remember that it is beneficial like CBD and it doesn’t have a psychoactive effect.
