  • What is the difference between CBD oil and hemp seed oil?

    CBD oil hemp seed oil

    CBD oil and hemp seed oil are popular health products. Both are sometimes confused because CBD is obtained from hemp or cannabis plants. In health food stores, they could be stored close together, which further confuses matters. However, there is a huge difference between CBD oil and hemp seed oil.

    Both CBD oil and hemp seed oil have health benefits, but these are completely different. Before buying either product, do some research on the difference.

    The benefits of hemp seed oil
    Hemp seed oil is obtained from the hemp seeds and cannabis plants. To make oil, the seeds are pressed in the same way as olives.

    Hemp seed oil is very nutritious and high in omega-3 fatty acids, which can improve the health of your skin, joints, eyes, and even your heart. It is also rich in omega-6 fatty acids. These fatty acids have been linked to strengthening bones, lowering cholesterol, and improving symptoms of PMS.

    The benefits of CBD
    CBD is not obtained from hemp seeds, but from the flower of the plant. Traces of CBD can also be found in the leaves and stems. In other words, hemp seed oil doesn't necessarily contain CBD.

    CBD has been linked to several benefits, including:

    • Relieve anxiety
    • Relief from pain and inflammation
    • Improve sleep
    • Reducing the severity and frequency of seizures
    • helps with acne and other skin diseases

    Although CBD needs further study, many people use it for a number of health reasons.

    CBD vs Hemp Seed Oil: Which One Do I Use?
    Before you buy any CBD or hemp seed oil, take a look at the packaging to be sure you are buying the right one. Both CBD and hemp seed products often contain pictures of hemp leaves, so don't let this confuse you: read through the ingredients.

    Although hemp seed oil doesn't always contain CBD, some CBD products also have added hemp seed oil. Some CBD oils use hemp seed oil as a "carrier oil". CBD products will state on the packaging that they contain CBD, cannabidiol oil or "cannabinoids".

    Hemp seed oil can be used as a salad dressing. You can also take a teaspoon of hemp seed oil regularly to get your daily dose of omega fatty acids.

    CBD oil is better suited for the above problems including seizure disorders, pain, anxiety, inflammation, and insomnia.

    We always recommend speaking to a doctor before using CBD oil. This is especially important if you are on chronic medication as some medications interact with CBD and cause nasty side effects.

    In some cases, CBD can also cause mild side effects such as:

    • Changes in weight and appetite
    • diarrhea
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • fatigue

    These side effects usually go away within a few hours. However, if the side effects are persistent or severe, you should call your doctor.

    CBD and hemp seed oil both have benefits - but they're not the same thing. To find high quality CBD products, take a look at our product range.
