The confusion and lack of awareness of what CBD is, what hemp oil is, what hemp products are, and what CBD products are have caused the industry many problems, and incorrect information for both the sellers and the consumers.
There are two classifications for the cannabis plant that produces CBD: hemp and marijuana.
CBD is exactly the same chemically structured compound whether it is extracted from the hemp variety of the plant or the marijuana variety, Cannabis Sativa. CBD is non-intoxicating regardless of which plant it was extractedfrom. (CBD derived from marijuana is only available from a licensed dispensary where legal.)
CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant.
CBD is one of the compounds in the cannabis plant that provides potential wellness benefits
CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant.
Like CBD—Hemp seed oil will not get you high.
Hemp oil is made from cold-pressing the seeds of the hemp plant to extract the oil.
Hemp oil is NOT CBD. Hemp oil is a carrier oil. A carrier oil is used to mix with or dilute the essential oil ( in this case, CBD) to “carry” the oil to the body, either transdermal or internally.
When you purchase a CBD tincture-oil, you get CBD in a carrier oil, not a full bottle made up of and filled exclusively and entirely of CBD.
CBD tincture-oils are made from CBD, and the hemp (carrier) oil, extracted from the hemp seeds. CBD + Carrier Oil = Finished Product.
