Hemp CBD Oils

What is CBD oil and how does it differ from hemp seed oil?

For consumers, the only real difference when talking about the ‘hemp plant’ or ‘marijuana plant’ is the potential use case of the end product. Both are part of the same ‘family’ but have many differing characteristics. However, while both oils have differing therapeutic values, hemp oil and CBD oil are manufactured and processed from different parts of the respective plant.

Both are often referred to in the mainstream press and news as ‘medical marijuana’. Both zero or very low levels of THC, the element of the plant which causes ‘the high’. There are few known side effects as a result of taking or administering hemp CBD oil and, as with most medications available on open sale or via prescription only the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages.

CBD oil is derived from the entire marijuana plant except for the seeds. Hemp oil is derived from the seeds of the hemp plant but both have differing therapeutic properties.
