What is Hempseed oil? What is CBD hemp oil?

Hempseed oil and CBD hemp oil originate from the same source: the cannabis plant. Hempseed oil is extracted from the pressing of seeds from the cannabis plant while Cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil is a derived from the flowers, leaves, and stems of the cannabis plant. Both oil types are natural, non-habit forming, and a nonpsychedelic.  This means that these products do not typically cause a high, since the levels of THC, if any, tend to be exceptionally low (below 0.3% in most cases). 

How do I know if my product is made with Hempseed Oil or CBD?

Since CBD hemp oil and hempseed oil are in the same cannabis genre, they are often marketed as the same thing.  Manufacturers market their products as if they contain CBD to increase their price value. Buyer Beware!

The best way to distinguish what you are paying for when purchasing a cannabis related product is by looking at its listings.  Hempseed oil will be listed as cannabis sativa seed oil. CBD will usually be listed as cannabidiol, full-spectrum hemp, hemp oil, PCR (phytocannabinoid-rich) or PCR hemp extracts.

In terms of legality; What is the difference between products that contain CBD and those that contain Hempseed oil?

In 2018, The Farm Bill passed that made production of industrial hemp legal in the United States.  Any hemp-derived CBD product with a THC percentage of less than 0.3 percent, is legal on the federal level but is still illegal under some state laws. Marijuana-derived CBD products are illegal on the federal level but are legal under some state laws. Check your state’s laws and the laws of anywhere you travel before using. 

In closing…

These products give customers the independence needed to treat themselves with a natural, non-habit forming, homeostatic remedy.  CBD related products could lessen the need for potentially harmful prescription drugs.  Although this is a relatively new area of study, there have been no serious side effects recorded with excessive CBD oil use.  It is not possible to overdose or become addicted to CBD oil.
