Did You Buy Hemp Oil and not CBD Oil?

Posted by Healthy Hemp Outlet on

Is Hemp Extraction Oil the same as Hemp CBD Oil? NO It Is NOT!

If you’ve heard about CBD oil and you’re interested in purchasing some then you need to know the difference between “hemp oil” and “CBD oil” because there can be confusion around the very popular CBD Oil and how marketers use the terms to describe the product.  The difference is obvious but without explanation consumers that doesn’t have experience with Cannabis and HEMP terminology could end up confused or worse - mislead into buying something that is nothing near a high quality CBD oil.

Why is there such confusion? If this discovery of CBD from Industrial Derived Hemp is proving to be so beneficial why is there good CBD and poor quality CBD? Or, why are some CBD products real and some CBD oils fake? It’s a pretty straightforward answer that exposes an ugly side of what happens when companies can bend the interpretation of words - marketing.

The difference between CBD oil and Hemp Oil is in the manufacturing process and how it is made, but the terms used are nearly identical with one small difference. Basically here is the difference- Hemp CBD Oil comes from the Hemp Flower, and Hemp Extraction Oil tends to come from the crushed seeds from the Hemp plant.

In  order to explain this best let’s talk about orange juice that we all love to drink. Most of us feel that orange juice offers vitamin C and is one of the healthiest natural products around.  And when you want the best orange juice you want it to come from the freshest oranges - you can almost imagine seeing the juice being squeezed directly from the orange and falling into your glass.  This is very similar to what happens when you take the hemp plant (orange tree) and you extract it for CBD products (orange juice). It’s like you’re squeezing  the CBD out of the hemp plant and get the freshest CBD oil. 

So now what are you going do with all of the leftover orange seeds and branches from the orange tree and oranges?  What if you could take these leftover orange seeds and put them into a high-pressure machine that would crush and squeeze the seeds together under pressure causing an oil to come out?  What if the oil that came from this process was also called orange juice extraction Instead of orange juice?  Do you now see how similar the terms are but how different the products actually are?  I know I want my orange juice to come from the orange itself  and not from the crushed leftover seeds.

If you purchased CBD online or from a convenience store it probably only has hemp extraction oil (came from crushed seeds and not the flower) and can be marketed and labeled as hemp oil, But the % of actual CBD oil is too small to allow companies to call the product CBD Oil, so they just call it Hemp Oil. 

So there you have it, there is a difference between CBD oil and hemp oil.  We are going to write another article on how to determine if a bottle is high quality CBD oil or if it is simply just hemp seed oil.

  • Industrial hemp is a poor source of CBD oil. Traditional industrial hemp plants are mostly all thick stalk with a few flowers on the top grown for their industrial uses as opposed to “marijuana” or medical grade cannabis plants with huge flower buds grown for their psychoactive and medical effects.

    It takes many times more raw product to extract CBD oil from industrial hemp than from marijuana plants concentrating whatever toxins and waste are in the soil.

    Industrial hemp has approx. 3.5% CBD by dry weight vs 20% in medical cannabis/marijuana plants.

    In addition, industrial hemp plants do not have the same trace cannabinoid/terpene/flavonoid profiles as marijuana plants.

    That’s why Kentucky hemp farmers went to Northern California last year and brought back marijuana clones with less than .3% THC but full of all the other trace cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids and calling them “hemp” because of the superior quality and quantity of therapeutic oils in marijuana plants vs industrial hemp plants.

    They have now created a new terminology for these plants and are calling them: “medical hemp” vs “industrial hemp”.

    Colorado marijuana farmers are picking their crops early to have less than .3% THC in order to call them “hemp” plants as well. These products contain the full spectrum of trace cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids and are vastly superior and safer than “industrial hemp” extracted CBD oil.

    However, less than .3% THC/CBD medical hemp products may not work for everybody or for every medical condition.

    One size does not fit all.

    It is the synergistic effects of the various cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids mixing together, potentiating each other’s therapeutic effects called the entourage effect that makes cannabis medicine work in the first place with different ratios of CBD/THC/trace cannabinoids and flavonoid profiles having different effects treating different medical conditions.

    The problem with industrial hemp is that it is a bio accumulator absorbing all the toxins and garbage in the soil which is great for remediating toxic soil but not so great to make concentrated CBD oil from that is then ingested by humans.

    Unscrupulous vendors have taken advantage of the new Farm Bill of 2018 legalizing hemp by importing industrial hemp waste products and by-products from Europe and Asia then making CBD oil from that garbage and selling it unregulated online, at gas stations and mini marts, Amazon and through MLM companies.

    Then there are the folks making, promoting and selling “refined” CBD isolates and calling it “Pure” – whatever that is – when what they really mean is CBD only, stripped of all the other essential necessary cannabinoids terpenes and flavonoids. They’re basically throwing out the baby with the bath water. Research on CBD clearly shows that it works best with THC and all the other trace cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids in varying ratios and quantities producing very different effects treating different medical conditions.

    This false narrative that CBD is good and THC is bad and should be avoided is just plain wrong, idiotic and not scientifically evidence based at all.

    We’ve had an FDA approved 100% THC prescription medication called Marinol available in all 50 states for over 30 years now since 1985 with label instructions that say it’s okay to drive, operate heavy machinery and do hazardous tasks if you feel comfortable doing so.

    Isolating one substance out of a medicinal soup of hundreds of active therapeutic substances has been shown to be much less effective with a very narrow dosing window requiring large doses to be effective with numerous adverse side effects and is exactly the wrong mindset that led us down the single molecule “silver bullet” pharmaceutical path for the last hundred years and is against the science of cannabis medicine which has clearly shown that whole plant full spectrum cannabis is superior to single molecule cannabis formulations.

    Last year the FDA approved single molecule CBD medicine called Epidiolex – made from oil extracted from marijuana plants – showed that 35% of test subjects reported symptom relief with many adverse side effects noted vs 71% using whole plant full spectrum cannabis extracted oil with few adverse effects.

    Twice the effectiveness at lower doses with less side effects. You decide.
