What Is CBD And CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp plants. This cannabinoid is extracted and infused into oils known as CBD oils which are then manufactured into a wide variety of products ranging from edibles and tinctures to topicals as well as many other products. Products that contain CBD are known as CBD products. Unlike hemp seed oil which is produced utilising hemp seeds, CBD is extracted from the stem, buds or flowers of industrial hemp and cannabis plants, where it is found in abundance. The CBD found in products we sell originate form industrial hemp.

CBD vape oil and other CBD products are utilised by consumers globally for a wide range of issues ranging from chronic pain and anxiety to sleep disorders, inflammatory conditions, and much more.

Hemp seeds produced by industrial hemp plants are potent in vitamins, amino acids, and other plant compounds that can be very beneficial when consumed. One thing that hemp seeds are not potent in is CBD. There are many products in the market today that can be misleading as they are simply hemp products that have been infused with hemp seed oil and can sometimes be confused with CBD products such as anxiety pen uk. While hemp seed oil and CBD oil are completely different, they both have their own respective benefits. Some of the potential benefits of consuming hemp seed and hemp seed oil include but are not limited to the following:

  • Boosts Immune System
  • Enhances Digestive Health
  • Aids in Weight Loss
  • Offers Anti-inflammatory Properties
  • Improves Cognitive Function

How To Know If You Are Getting CBD Or Hemp Seed Oil in Your Products

If the brand of product that you are looking at purchasing or have already purchased is transparent, it will be easy to tell whether or not your product contains CBD or hemp seed oil mixed with terpenes. Telling the difference should be as easy as looking at the ingredient label. If your ingredient label states that the product contains cannabis oil, full spectrum hemp, hemp oil, PCR, or PCR hemp extracts, it should be a CBD product that utilises CBD isolate or CBD oil as a base. If your product states that it contains cannabis sativa seed oil, the product in question is made utilising hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil may also be labeled simply as hemp seed oil on the ingredient list as well.

Additionally, many companies that have included CBD with no THC Vapes in their products will also include the milligrams of CBD in the product somewhere on the labelling. We hope that this information will help you to make a more informed decision when it comes to purchasing your CBD or hemp seed oil products.
