CBD vs. Hemp: What are the Major Differences?

In recent years, there has been a lot of discussions about CBD and hemp. These two substances are now very popular, but a lot of people are still confused about their similarities and differences. 

Well, in this article we’re going to make it clear to you as simple as possible. Having a better understanding can help you choose the safest and most appropriate products.

Now let’s proceed! Both CBD and hemp are obtained from the cannabis plant family. 

There are different products made from hemp, including food, clothes, oils, shampoos, hand lotions, and more. CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is commonly found as oil tinctures, edibles like gummies, topical ointments, and capsules. 

So, what are the major differences between CBD and Hemp?

One of the similarities shared between CBD and hemp is that they are both derived from Cannabis sativa.

Cannabis contains over 120 compounds, which are collectively called cannabinoids. Two prominent cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). 

THC is the psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant and it causes a feeling of “high.”

CBD is a non-intoxicating substance just like Hemp because it does not contain THC. Both are great options if you want to stay alert however they are used for different purposes.

Now one question that has been surrounding CBD and hemp centers on their oils. 

What is Hemp oil?

Hemp oil is derived from the seed of the cannabis plant. The product is usually made through cold-pressing hemp seeds to get a dark, thick oil that is nutrient rich and high concentrated.

Hemp seeds do not contain CBD and are rich in gamma-linolenic acid, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and additional antioxidants. The hemp seeds are also high in vitamin B and D, which is why many nutritional supplements contain hemp oil.

People don’t use the hemp oil for recreational purposes because it does not contain THC, meaning it won’t produce any psychoactive effect.

Manufacturers add hemp oil to nutritional products such as cookies, snack bars, breads, yogurt, and sauces, and that’s because it provides an excellent source of nutrients. 

Here are some amazing health benefits linked to hemp oil:

  • Moisturized skin and unclogged pores
  • Possible Improved cardiovascular health
  • Alleviation of menstrual discomfort
  • Possible Improved mental health
  • Improved immune system
  • Less red, irritated skin

One hemp-infused product you can add to your diet is New Orleans Nights Spicy BBQ Sauce (250-MG). This award-winning spicy BBQ sauce is a good way to enjoy the necessary benefits of hemp without the feeling of “high.”

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is derived from the leaves, flowers, and stalks of the cannabis plant. These oils are made from different processes such as CO2 or ethanol extraction, which draws cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds from the whole plant to make a final product. 

There are typically three types of CBD, including:

  • full-spectrum CBD: This contains all cannabinoids, including THC
  • Broad-spectrum CBD: Contains all cannabinoids except THC
  • CBD isolate: This contains only CBD, all other contents have been filtered out.

Many manufacturers use these terms interchangeably and that’s because they are not regulated. And most times, faulty manufacturing processes and improper labelling exposes people to THC in broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate oil. 

That’s more reason you should be careful and always check the Certificate of Analysis (COA) of CBD products. This is the only way to fully understand what’s contained in a CBD oil product. 

That’s the reason why it’s important to always buy from a reputable company like Euphoria Eats. We have great products you can add to your dishes, meat, or rib treats like New Orleans Nights Spicy BBQ Sauce (250-MG). You get to enjoy spice and bold sweet heat which is great for both indoor and outdoor gatherings and events. 

The FDA view on hemp oil and CBD oil

One of the advantages of hemp seed oil is that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared it to be legal to sell or buy anywhere. 

As the market is still being regulated  and the FDA is yet to evaluate all CBD products, consumers are advised to do proper homework if they desire to use CBD oils. Although hemp derived CBD is legal in all states its important to always watch for the quality of the provided CBD.

Final Remark

Although there are a few similarities between CBD and Hemp, they have many clear-cut differences. which is why it’s so important to make sure you are getting the benefits of both from your products!

They both offer potential health benefits, but a major difference you should keep in mind is that CBD oil has medicinal benefits separate from hemp oil so it’s always important to mak sure you have a diverse product.
