Interested? Good! We’ve actually dedicated a whole blog post for the benefits of CBD oil – check it out to learn more!

If you’ve read anything about the wellness trends for 2020 and 2021 then chances are you’ve heard of hemp oil and CBD oil (and chances are you’re a bit confused).

We’re here to make understanding CBD oil vs hemp seed oil as easy as loving them is. In a sentence, hemp oil (also known as hemp seed oil) comes from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plants and, while it does have health benefits, does not contain CBD. CBD oil, on the other hand, is a chemical compound extracted from the leaves, flowers and stalk of the same plant, and is used to treat everything from depression and anxiety to epilepsy and insomnia.

Here at Good Hemp we make a range of hemp products (from our hemp milk and hemp seeds to hemp protein powder and, of course, our original hemp oil ) from the hemp seed. But you’ve probably got more questions about all that: Are hemp oil and CBD oil the same thing or is there a difference between hemp oil and CBD oil? How exactly does CBD work? Does that mean hemp gets you high?

We thought we’d answer all of those questions in one place and delve deeper into hemp oil vs CBD oil.

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

CBD can be extracted from both marijuana and hemp. However, as marijuana is illegal in most places, much of the CBD you’ll find on the market is made from hemp.

Yes, hemp oil can be good for pain. Hemp seed oil is applied topically or ingested by many people as a form of natural pain relief. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can be useful for people suffering from a variety of painful infections, autoimmune disorders or injuries.

Good Hemp’s hemp oil is super-rich in omegas (otherwise known as good fat) and has 25 times more omegas than olive oil. It has absolutely no trans fats (and 40% less saturated fats than olive oil).

Good Hemp has now launched a new range of Pure & lab tested CBD Oil on various flavours, such as citrus and peppermint!

Can I use Nutiva Organic Hemp Seed Oil for sauteing and baking?

CBD and hemp seed oil are made from different parts of the plant. Nutiva’s Organic Hemp Seed Oil is cold expeller pressed from whole, raw hemp seed. CBD oil is a floral hemp extract that’s made from the leaves and flowers. Hemp Seed oil and hemp foods are not a source of CBD.

What is the difference between CBD oil and Hemp Seed oil?

Using our Organic Hemp Seed Oil as a cooking oil will not preserve the essential fatty acids (EFAs). It has a low smoke point and may hydrogenate at high temperatures.

How much Omega-6 and Omega-3 is in Nutiva Organic Hemp Seed Oil?

In one serving of our Organic Hemp Seed Oil there are 7.5g of Omega-6 LA, 2.5g of Omega-3 ALA, 2.0g Omega-9, 500mg Omega 6-GLA and 250mg Omega-3 SDA.

Hemp Oil is a natural alternative for treating skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and acne. This is because the essential fatty acids are said to affect the immune response in the body which helps promote healing.

Hemp Oil is a great plant-based alternative to receiving the daily recommended dosage of essential fatty acids.

Before you start getting concerned, hemp is indeed different to its cousin Marijuana and does not contain any psychoactive effects. Instead, it is an all natural superfood that was recently legalised for consumption in Australia late last year.

5. It strengthens your hair

Growing hemp is said to work wonders on the world, this super plant is not only great for us but great for the earth. It can consume four times as much CO2 as trees do to reduce our carbon emissions. The hemp plant can also absorb radiation, heavy metals and other man-made toxins. Plus, 1 acre of hemp can produce the same amount of paper as 4.1 acres of trees and more oxygen than 25 acres of forest!

The essential fatty acids in Hemp Oil contain GLA which is said to help reduce inflammation.

Using Hemp Oil on the scalp can help improve blood circulation and prevent scalp infections. This can result in stronger, healthier hair.

It’s cold pressed from the hemp seed to create a pure, hypoallergenic, natural oil that has thousands of hidden benefits for both health and beauty.
