CBD Oil vs. Hempseed Oil, What's the Difference?

Updated: Jul 22, 2020



WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD OIL AND HEMPSEED OIL? THERE IS STILL A MAJOR CONFUSION BETWEEN THE TWO. THEY BOTH COME FROM THE CANNABIS SATIVA PLANT, BUT THEY ARE VERY MUCH SO DIFFERENT. WITH THE AMOUNT OF ILLEGITIMATE PRODUCTS OUT THERE CLAIMING TO BE CBD RICH OILS. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE PRODUCTS YOU BUY. LETS BREAK DOWN THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE TWO RELATED OILS, BUT ALSO VERY DIFFERENT OILS.


HOW DO THESE OILS DIFFER?


WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND ON CBD?

THE MOST OBVIOUS DIFFERENCE, CBD OIL IS RICH IN THE FAMOUS PHYTOCANNABINOID AND SEVERAL OTHERS. BUT HEMP SEED OIL CONTAINS NO CBD OR ANY CANNABINOIDS AT ALL.


HOW IS CBD MADE?

CBD OIL USES CO2 OR SOLVENT EXTRACTION ON THE FLOWERS OF THE HEMP PLANT. HEMP SEED OIL IS EXTRACTED FROM THE SEEDS OF THE PLANT VIA COLD OR EXPELLER PRESS EXTRACTION. SINCE CBD IS ONLY FOUND IN THE FLOWERS AND NOT THE SEEDS, THESE TWO ARE DIFFERENT.


HOW TO USE CBD OIL?

CBD OIL IS USED ORALLY OR TOPICALLY FOR ITS THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES. HEMP SEED OIL CONTAINS HIGH CONTENT OF VITAMINS AND FATTY ACIDS, THEREFORE IT IS A COMMON INGREDIENT FOR HAIR, NAIL, AND SKIN CARE FORMULATIONS IN THE COSMETIC INDUSTRY. IT IS ALSO USED IN COOKING AND DRESSINGS.


WHAT IS AN ACCURATE SCENT AND FLAVOR?

CBD OIL POSSESSES A DISTINCT EARTHY SMELL AND TASTE THAT IS A CHARACTERISTIC OF HEMP (CANNABIS) FLOWERS, BECAUSE OF ITS RESINS AND TERPENES. SINCE HEMP SEED OIL IS A PRESSING OF HEMP SEEDS, ITS SCENT IS MUCH MORE MILD AND NUTTY.


WHY THE PRICE DIFFERENCES?

CBD OIL IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EXPENSIVE PER OUNCE IN COMPARISON TO HEMP SEED OIL. THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE INCREDIBLE COSTS NEEDED TO PRODUCE CBD OIL FROM SEED TO SALE.


ARE YOU BEING FOOLED BY PRICES?

DEPENDING ON YOUR NEEDS, IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE BASIC DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CBD OIL AND HEMP SEED OIL TO ENSURE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND PURCHASING THE CORRECT PRODUCT. WE HAVE CUSTOMERS ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT AMAZON LISTINGS ALL THE TIME: “HOW COME I CAN GET 1,000MG ON AMAZON FOR $20?” THE REASON IS SIMPLE. AS OF THIS BLOG POSITING DATE, AMAZON STILL PROHIBITS THE SALE OF CBD PRODUCTS. THAT DOES NOT STOP DISHONEST VENDORS FROM SELLING PURE HEMPSEED OIL BY HINTING AT THE FACT THAT IT CONTAINS CBD. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THIS FALSE TACTIC. ALWAYS REQUEST CERTIFICATES OF ANALYSIS TO PROVE THE AUTHENTICITY OF YOUR OIL. FAST AMAZON SHIPPING MAY BE ATTRACTIVE, BUT IT’S NO SUBSTITUTE FOR QUALITY OILS YOU CAN TRUST. TO SEE A SELECTION OF THE CBD OILS WE OFFER, VISIT.
