With the surge in interest in CBD since the U.S. Farm Bill passed in late 2018, you may be curious about the difference between hemp oil and CBD. Here’s a simple overview of the two substances, including similarities, differences, and benefits of both.
Hemp oil or “hempseed oil” is just what it sounds like: oil that’s been extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant: cannabis sativa. Many people find hemp oil to be useful as a topical application for skin and it is believed to have anti-aging properties. In fact, you may already have skincare products that list hemp oil as one of the ingredients. Hemp oil is rich in omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and protein.
CBD or Cannabidiol oil is also derived from the cannabis sativa (hemp) plant, but instead of using the seeds, CBD is extracted from the flowers, leaves, stems, and stalks of matured hemp plants. Full spectrum CBD oil contains beneficial cannabinoids, substances which help support the body’s natural Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in maintaining equilibrium in the body. CBD is beneficial for sleep, mood, anxiety, seizures, acne, memory, pain, inflammation, nausea, digestion, relaxation, arthritis, panic disorder, and much more. Additionally, full spectrum CBD oil contains terpenes and nutrients that don’t appear in hemp oil alone.
Full spectrum CBD oil from NuLeaf Naturals is blended with pure, organic hemp oil, so you’re getting the best of both worlds. NuLeaf Naturals uses a two-part extraction process in creating CBD oil, which ensures the maximum benefit from the harvested plants. You can take CBD oil topically, or you can ingest it or take it under the tongue. When choosing a CBD oil, do not be swayed to select purely on cost, as this is one industry where “you get what you pay for.” Choose CBD oil that is pure, organic, and full spectrum, and be sure to check out the company’s lab-verified test results.
