When it comes to hemp terminology, the misconceptions and mistakes are endless, thus leading to widespread confusion and misinformation. Seabedee has taken it upon ourselves to clear the air and break down these misconstrued hemp-related terms so that you can easily understand and differentiate them. Here’s what you should know in order to be in the know with all things hemp…
Hemp seed oil, also known as “hemp oil”, comes from the seed of the hemp plant (makes sense, considering it is called “hemp seed oil”). Hemp seed oil does not contain any cannabinoids, so there is no CBD content whatsoever. There is a lot of misinformation surrounding this, so allow me to reiterate: Unlike hemp extract, hemp seed oil has zero CBD content and no cannabinoids at all. For this reason, hemp seed oil is significantly less expensive in comparison to hemp extract. The pricing should be a good marker of whether the product you’re considering is hemp seed oil or CBD hemp extract.
Although hemp seed oil slacks in the cannabinoid department, it makes up for it in nutritional value. Hemp seed oil contains an abundance of nutrients, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that promote healthy digestive functioning, a healthy heart and happy skin. Hemp seed oil also contains a substantial amount of vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that helps fight off free radicals. Vitamin E also works to nourish the skin, promote normal hormone function and rejuvenate the hair. These properties of vitamin E make hemp seed oil an excellent addition to haircare and skincare products, which has become increasingly popular in today’s health and beauty market.
CBD hemp extract, also known as “hemp-derived CBD oil” or simply “CBD oil”, is derived from the parts of the hemp plant that contain copious amounts of CBD. The flower, stalk, leaves and stem of a hemp plant all contain the highest concentrations of CBD, which is why these are the parts used to make CBD hemp extract. CBD hemp extract is significantly more expensive than hemp seed oil because it contains CBD and many other valuable cannabinoids that work to provide users with a variety of medicinal benefits. Some of the benefits that may be reaped from CBD hemp extract include: Reduction of inflammation in the body, pain management, relaxation, less anxiety, better sleep, seizure treatment and promotion of healthier skin. CBD hemp extracts can be found as full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate products, depending on which cannabinoids are included or extracted.
Some CBD companies label their products as “Hemp Extract” instead of “CBD Oil”, which is usually a sign that the CBD content is less than it should be. This is why it’s so important to check the COA for the product you’re considering. The COA verifies that the percentage of CBD content, as well as other cannabinoids, is where it should be, so that you know you’re getting what you paid for.
