The Difference Between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Hemp Oil

Jan 20, 2016

Pure hemp seed oil contains no CBD whatsoever.

As hemp based products become more and more popular, both in the human and the pet world, it’s important to understand what health benefits they actually provide. Although both are extremely beneficial to mammal health, there are distinct differences between the two.

Hemp seed oil

Hemp seed oil is made by pressing hemp seeds together until the oil within them excretes. Hemp seeds are considered one of the (if not the) best sources of protein. Along with the protein benefits, hemp seeds have an abundance of essential amino and fatty acids that the human body requires. It’s high nutritional value makes it one of the easiest substances to digest.

Since only the seeds are being used, hemp seed oils contain no CBD and none of the cannabinoids that are found in the stalks, flowers, and leaves of the hemp plant.

CBD hemp oil

CBD hemp oil, typically extracted from the stalks, flowers, and leaves of the hemp plant, is full of cannabinoids (natural compounds) that are only found in the cannabis plant family. CBD coming from hemp plants (and not marijuana hybrids) are extremely high in CBD and extremely low in the most well-know cannabinoid, THC. For this reason, CBD hemp oil allows you to get all the health benefits of the hemp plant without also having the psychoactive effects of THC.

Cannabinoids found in the hemp plant are the only compounds found in the natural world that have the ability to turn on your (and your pet’s) Endocannabinoid System (ECS). When your ECS is turned on, it’s the only time your body is able to function at optimal levels of health.
