When shopping for CBD many customers experience trouble distinguishing between CBD oil and hemp seed oil. While both products offer their own unique benefits it’s important to understand hemp seed oil does not contain the desired benefits seen from CBD. In this blog post, we will further explain the differences between the two products to try to clear any confusion!
The Source of Hempseed and CBD
Both CBD and hemp oil and hemp seed oil come from hemp plants. However, the CBD content in hemp seed oil is nearly nonexistent.
This is because all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds in hemp are found in the flowers and leaves, not the seeds. With hemp seed, manufacturers extract hemp seed oil from the seeds of the hemp plant.
CBD oil comes from the flowers and leaves of the plant. With specialized extraction processes manufacturers like Suzie's can draw out an extract rich in CBD and other components.
The Different Benefits
The benefits of each product vary greatly! With hemp seed oil, you will see nutritional benefits like increased fiber intake, stronger hair and nails, and a hormone balance.
The benefits of CBD oil are more therapeutic. These include anti-inflammatory properties, anxiety relief, and pain alleviation to name a few.
With the rush of popularity in hemp products, some brands are jumping on the chance to sell their products but are mixing the terms CBD and hemp seed up — intentionally or not.
Since CBD and hemp seed oil are in the same cannabis family, they’re often incorrectly marketed as the same thing.
Suzie's wants the hemp market to be an accessible place for all who want to pursue holistic options. Because of this, we pledge to always be transparent in our marketing and education. You can also be assured we will only sell USDA organic, full-spectrum CBD oil. It is our hope this will contribute to a natural market where customers can easily make the best choices for themselves!
