Is Every Hemp Oil CBD?

There is a huge difference between hemp oil, i.e. hemp seed oil, and CBD oil.

CBD oil uses the stalks, leaves, and flowers of the hemp plant in its production. These contain a higher concentration of CBD, which is a compound with numerous potential health benefits.

Meanwhile, hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant. The seeds do not contain CBD, but they still have a rich profile of nutrients, fatty acids, and useful bioactive compounds that can also have health benefits.

Hemp seed oil contains virtually no cannabinoids or terpenes. However, hemp oil can be used as a carrier oil for CBD instead of MCT oil. Hemp oil, however, does not have a good solubility (solvency) of CBD as coconut MCT oil. Therefore, from your concentration of CBD with hemp carrier oil, you get a much less active substance for your body.

Hemp oil, unlike MCT oil, has its own cannabis taste, which may appeal to some consumers, but many customers complain about the strong cannabis aftertaste.

People do not use hemp seed oil for recreational purposes. This is because the levels of THC and CBD, which cause the psychoactive effects, are either limited or absent.

Some people suggest that hemp seed oils can help people maintain good cardiovascular health by improving total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides.

On the other hand, people use CBD oils for their alleged medicinal benefits helping them with epilepsy, pain and inflammation, anxiety and depression, addiction management, inflammatory skin conditions or neurodegenerative conditions, as well as CBD for weight loss.
