My blog is dedicated to the exploration of industrial hemp in America including the rich history of all forms of cannabis, the evolving law and politics of hemp and marijuana, the many products made from cannabis and the capacity, real or imagined, of hemp to re-industrialize rural America and revitalize the American family farm.
Both hemp oil and CBD hemp oil can be beneficial when added into your diet. However, they are not the same nor do they have the exact same benefits. Many people regularly enjoy both and continue to reap the benefits of helpful fatty-acids, as well as other benefits for the whole body.
What Is Hemp Oil?
To be expected, hemp oil (also called hemp seed oil) is extracted from hemp plants; more specifically the seeds. While this type of oil can be extracted from all plants of the cannabis species, industrial hemp is the only type used for hemp oil. This type of hemp does not contain THC and therefore has no psychoactive effects.
What is Hemp Seed Oil Used For?
Hemp can be used for cooking (at lower temperatures) and is full of necessary fatty acids. It can provide an earthy and nutty taste to foods and can be used in salad dressings.
It is a great natural moisturizer for the skin with fatty acids and linoleic acid.
Hemp oil is used for making skincare products, soaps, and even some food products.
What Is CBD Oil?
CBD is short for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a natural component found in both industrial cannabis and hemp. CBD oil is cannabis oil that has a significant content of cannabidiol. It is made from the mature stalks of hemp and not from its seeds like hemp seed oil. CBD oil has become very popular, because it can provide relief for various conditions without the typical psychoactive effects of THC.
