HEMP SEED OIL VS. CBD OIL: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND CBD?
With Cannabidiol (CBD) becoming more mainstream, some confusion may arise when comparing hemp seed oil and CBD oil. Though you may hear these names used interchangeably, CBD oil and hemp seed oil are actually not one and the same!
What is CBD Oil vs. Hemp Seed Oil?
While cannabis and hemp are both from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa, they are actually different varieties of C. sativa, cultivated for different purposes. Though CBD can be extracted from the plant varieties that are cultivated for other features, such as THC-content, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 specifically legalized hemp-derived CBD that contains no more than 0.3% total THC. Both MaryRuth’s Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Oil are hemp-derived.
Hemp seed oil is extracted by cold-pressing the seeds of the hemp plant, while CBD is one of many phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant, and therefore is extracted from the leaves and/or flowers of the plant.
How Are Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Oil Extracted?
MaryRuth’s Pure Hemp Oil Drops use cold-pressing to extract the oil from the hemp seeds. Hemp Seed Oil generally does not contain substantial amounts of cannabinoids.
Although extracting hemp seed oil is fairly straight-forward, there are many methods to choose from when extracting CBD oil. Safe techniques for CBD extraction include, but are not limited to: carbon dioxide extraction, ethanol extraction, or solvent extraction with olive oil. The extraction method used is important to keep in mind when choosing a CBD product, as it determines the quality of the final product outcome. Here at MaryRuth’s, for our broad-spectrum phytocannabinoid extract, we use solvent-free carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction.
Does Hemp Seed Oil or CBD Oil Contain THC?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive chemical compound found in the cannabis plant that gives the “high” feeling that marijuana is known for.
Since hemp seed oil comes from oil-pressing the seeds of the hemp plant, it does not contain any THC (unless it is not properly handled and cross-contamination occurs). CBD comes from the leaves and/or flowers of the hemp plant, and legally cannot contain more than 0.3% THC to be sold in the U.S.
