Pure hemp seed oil contains no CBD whatsoever.
With hemp-based products for humans and pets become more and more popular, it’s important to understand what health benefits they actually provide and what different hemp products are out there. As pet parents, we know it’s important to know what’s going into your pet’s body which is why we believe pets should receive the same quality if not superior quality to products we consume ourselves as humans. Whether you’re on the search for a CBD product or a general hemp supplement for your pet, we’re breaking down the differences between hemp seed oil and CBD hemp oil so you can decide which you want to administer to your pets.
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. Its high nutritional value makes it one of the easiest substances to digest.
Since only the seeds are being utilized, 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 can help you and your pet’s bodies function at optimal levels of health.
