Understanding the world of CBD and Hemp can be confusing at times. In the case of hemp seed oil and Hemp Oil, we have two different Hemp products, each with its own unique properties. However, CBD manufacturers and producers often use the terms interchangeably, leaving consumers bewildered as to what they are actually buying.
Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp Oil
Both hemp seed oil and Hemp Oil are produced from industrial Hemp. They are both non-psychotropic and non-addictive and both have significant health properties.
While hemp seed oil is rich in valuable omega fatty acids and is often perceived as having nutritional value akin to sunflower oil, Hemp Oil is viewed as a health-supporting botanical compound.
The difference between these two Hemp products lies in the way they are harvested and produced.
How Are Hemp Seed Oil and Hemp Oil Produced?
Hemp is a tall plant that grows fast and ultimately blooms. When the time is right, growers harvest the plant for its leaves, stalks, stems, flowers, and seeds. Once that happens:
- The seeds are cold-pressed to produce hemp seed oil, which is then added to food, salads, and drinks.
- The whole plant is used to produce whole-plant or Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil, which tends to be high in CBD and other cannabinoids.
- Finally, some manufacturers use the flowers to extract CBD oil.
What Makes Hemp Seed Oil Different from Hemp Oil?
The seeds that give us hemp seed oil contain plenty of healthy compounds such as fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals but contain no cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, CBG, or CBDA.
Hemp Oil, on the other hand, is made from plant parts that contain cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
If you are looking to feel the effect of CBD and other cannabinoids, you need to purchase Hemp Oil.
How Can I Be Sure of What I’m Buying?
When choosing the right product for you, you need to inspect the label to understand whether you are buying hemp seed oil or Hemp Oil.
If you see the terms “cannabis seed oil” or “cannabis sativa seed oil,” you are purchasing hemp seed oil. This should be far cheaper than Hemp Oil because the extraction process is minimal and relatively straightforward.
If you want to buy Hemp Oil, the label should list the amount of CBD or Full-Spectrum Hemp in mg. The label should also mention Full-Spectrum or CBD or all the other cannabinoids present in the product. These should be clearly labeled, ideally with their content listed in mg.
Finally, your Hemp Oil should mention the extraction method either on their label or on their website and carry a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) that verifies the content of all the compounds in the Hemp Oil product.
What Are the Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil?
Hemp seed oil has been found to be high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega fatty acids. These are nutritional natural compounds like Omega 3 that support a healthy heart, a strong immune system. It also contains Omega 6 that promote youthful skin and strong hair and nails.
Hemp seed oil has a nutty and earthy aroma and is often used like other plant oils, drizzled over salads, dressings, and in drinks. It is best not to heat it as it doesn’t withstand heat well.
What Are the Benefits of Hemp Oil?
Because of the presence of over 100 cannabinoids, Hemp Oil benefits from the health potential of these cannabinoids. The human body is equipped with an endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS). This uses endocannabinoids; compounds that help maintain the body’s natural balance. The cannabinoids found in Hemp appear to enhance the function of our own cannabinoids, helping us make better use of what our body is already offering.
Research suggests that Hemp Oil may support our mental health and brain focus, as well as our energy levels and sleep patterns.
Additionally, Hemp Oil shows promising results when it comes to helping prevent mood disorders, inflammation, and inflammatory skin conditions.
While hemp seed oil offers nutritional value, Hemp Oil goes a step further, additionally supporting a healthy body and mind.
Does It Matter to Have All the Cannabinoids in Hemp Oil?
Industrial Hemp, where Hemp Oil is derived from, contains over 100 cannabinoids and more than 200 terpenes, alongside flavonoids, fatty acids, and vitamins.
While CBD is the most famous cannabinoid, Hemp contains many more. These other cannabinoids offer their own benefits when it comes to promoting our health and wellbeing. For example, cannabinoids have been found to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pain-relieving potential.
Hemp Oil is categorized according to the cannabinoids it contains:
- Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil contains all the cannabinoids naturally present in Hemp—including CBD, THC, CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDV, and more—as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and other natural compounds.
- Broad-Spectrum Hemp Oil contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids but no THC.
- As for CBD isolate, as its name suggests, it only contains CBD and no other cannabinoids, nor any terpenes and flavonoids.
Research has shown that having all the cannabinoids work in tandem may increase the potential of Hemp Oil. Studies suggest that when all the cannabinoids are consumed together, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s almost as if 1+1=3. Cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together to enhance each other’s effectiveness and potential, giving an end result that outweighs their added individual potential.
This has been called the entourage effect.
