CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It’s a naturally occurring substance that can be extracted from hemp and used in many different products.
While sharing many properties, then main difference between the two is that marijuana grows at high percentages of THC and low percentages of CBD. Hemp grows with only trace amounts of THC and high percentages of CBD. This means there is no “high” effect from using CBD derived from hemp.
Hemp seed oil, which can be found at a grocery store and is inexpensive, is a much different product than our CBD oil. Standard hemp seed oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds
and is great for cooking, and as a carrier oil for CBD Tinctures. Whereas our hemp extract (CBD oil) is a full plant extraction providing many cannabinoids not typically found in the seeds. We use hemp seed oil as the high fat carrier oil for our tinctures, but because it is made from the seeds it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids that the hemp extract provides. Hemp Extract, whether broad or full-spectrum is derived from the flowers of the plant which is where you fill find the highest amount of naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids.
