Cannabidiol, the more well-known CBD, is a popular natural medicine that can be used in many common diseases.It is one of the 104 cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis plants (Cannabis sativa).
Hemp oil and CBD conventional are all called cannabis oil. Cannabis oil is a generic term. Not only hemp oil and CBD oil but also some other extracted oils. So, what is the difference between hemp oil and CBD oil?
One difference is where the oils come from.
Hemp oil and CBD oil are both extracted from the hemp plant. Oils extracted from different parts of the hemp plant may contain some amounts of THC or CBD. We extract hemp oil from the hemp seeds, which contain trace amounts of CBD and THC-free. We usually carry hemp oil extraction out by low-temperature cold pressing.
CBD oil refers to the oil containing a concentration of CBD (cannabidiol) and contains trace amounts of THC (≤0.3%). We use the hemp leaves and flowers as material extracts.
Another difference is the use of oils.
Hemp oil has many uses, which is part of its popularity. Because of its high levels of vitamins E, B, B1, and B2. We can add it to food as a vitamin supplement. It is also rich in protein and antioxidants.
Hemp oil also contains potassium, magnesium and fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6. These acids can help reduce signs of aging and improve heart health.
The oil also is a good moisturizer because omega-3 and omega-6 act a similar way to the skin’s natural lipids6. This allows for increased skin elasticity and water retention. It is great to use hemp oil to moisturize the skin, hair, and nails to help them stay healthy and strong.
According to the production method of the CBD oil, it can fall into a full-spectrum CBD oil (Full Spectrum CBD Oil) and a pure CBD oil (Pure CBD Isolate Oil).
Pure CBD oil – is to separate and purify the CBD crystal from the hemp flower leaf, the purity of the CBD can be as high as 99.9%, and then the CBD crystal can dissolve in the oil solvent. Pure CBD oil contains only CBD and does not contain any other ingredients in hemp. Since the CBD crystal is colorless and odorless, the color of the pure CBD oil depends on the solvent used and other additives. used solvents are coconut oil (MCT oil), olive oil, castor oil and VG/PG.
Full-spectrum (or broad-spectrum) CBD oil – is an extract of the hemp flower leaves without further purification and separation. Besides the CBD, there are other cannabinoids (such as CBN, CBG, CBL, CBCVA. sometimes containing a small amount of THC), terpenes and aromatic compounds. Full-spectrum CBD oils are usually more viscous, darker, and have a botanical taste of hemp.
The CBD helps stimulate the body’s natural cannabinoid production to maintain the efficiency of the receptor and the optimal function of the endo cannabinoid system. However, CBD affects not only cannabinoid receptors. It also affects many other receptors.
They have also shown it to affect dopamine and serotonin receptors. Dopamine helps regulate cognitive and behavioral aspects, motivation, and reward-seeking. Serotonin receptors can solve problems such as anxiety.
