Hemp has been a part of agriculture for thousands of years. Even dating back as far as 6000 B.C. in modern day China, there is evidence of hemp being used in their everyday lives. One of the most widely used bi-products of hemp throughout history has been the incorporation of hemp seed oil. These oils are very important as they contain essential fatty and amino acids and produce a rich nutty flavor. This makes it perfect for consumption whether used as a salad dressing, drizzled over pasta, cooking oil, or our favorite, a carrier for CBD. These oils also have many topical benefits and are highly sought after in the cosmetics industry as they can be mixed into creams, lotions, and salves.
Hemp Oil vs CBD
You maybe wondering what the difference is between CBD oil and hemp seed oil as these two are often confused for one another. The confusion mainly lies in their origin. CBD and hemp seed oil are both extracted from the hemp plant however they come from different parts of the plant and have different intended uses. Hemp seed oil, as the name suggests, is extracted from the seeds of the hemp plant and contains absolutely no CBD. This oil is currently used as a cooking ingredient, topically in the form of creams and lotions, and as a carrier in our tinctures. CBD, on the other hand, is extracted from the hemp flower, used therapeutically, and is currently being studied for its medicinal properties.
To be clear, hemp seed oil is NOT the same as CBD and are two completely separate components of the hemp plant. However, we mix our CBD distillate and isolate with our hemp seed oil to make our tinctures. This allows us to provide you with the purest, 100% hemp based product on the market.
