The Difference Between Hemp and CBD: A Comprehensive Guide

Hemp oil and CBD oil are two different products derived from the same plant, Cannabis sativa. Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant, while CBD oil is extracted from the stems, leaves and flowers. Hemp seed oil contains only trace amounts of cannabinoids, while CBD oil contains a higher concentration of beneficial compounds like CBD and THC. The main difference between the two plants is the amount of each compound they contain.

Cannabis contains more THC and less CBD, while hemp contains more CBD and less THC. Hemp seed oil should be used at temperatures below 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius), and it's best to store it in the refrigerator or freezer after opening it due to its short shelf life. CBD products are often mislabeled, and some products contain small amounts of THC despite claims that they do not contain THC. Full-spectrum products contain all the cannabinoids, including CBD, and terpenes in a nice little package, just as nature intended.

If you want to take advantage of the benefits of the entourage effect, you should try full-spectrum hemp oil. People who are considering using CBD for physical or mental problems should inform their doctors to ensure that it does not interact with any medications they are taking. However, CBD products must be absolutely accompanied by a COA from an independent and accredited external laboratory.
