Hemp Oil & CBD
A Concise, Straightforward Beginner's Guide to Hemp Oil & CBD for Better Health, Better Mood and Faster Healing
Hemp and CBD oils, while coming from the same plant, have different areas of origin and different composition. The two oils have different uses and the mechanisms of procuring these oils are also different. For Hemp Oil, while the plant is still Cannabis Sativa, it is one with reduced tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to ensure that the effects of THC are minimized. Hemp oil comes from the seeds of the plant and is pressed out from the said leaves with some application of heat along the way. The oil contains minimum levels of the active ingredients as both CBD and THC levels are lowered thanks to the choice of plant species and the type of extraction method. Hemp oil can be used quite regularly because of the low amounts of active ingredients.
CBD oil is produced from the leaves, stems and buds/flowers of the Cannabis Sativa plant. The mechanism of extraction requires application of maximal amount of heat to ensure decarboxylation. This particular product contains CBD in higher quantities and since the component has medicinal value, it is stored away for more medical usage rather than a regular use.
