Hemp Seeds and Hemp Seed Oil – What’s the Difference?
There are many terms that get thrown around when you’re first learning the in’s and out’s of hemp seed oil products.
When you go to Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, there are lots of products containing hemp seeds and hemp seed oils. For example, you can buy hemp seeds for salads, or soaps and lotions containing hemp seed oil, as well as good ole’ hemp oil to cook with.
But the garden variety of hemp oil you see in most products comes from the industrial hemp plant; and the oil from this type of hemp is cold-pressed from the seeds to extract the oil.
Not to worry, here are some of the basics to help you navigate this new ground.
Hemp seed oil contains ZERO cannabinoids, as there’s NO CBD and NO THC. So, you won’t get the healthy benefits of CBD.
– Hemp seeds are very nutritious and high in protein,
– The oil is high in unsaturated fats,
– Both the seeds and oil are high in antioxidants, and
– They contain the perfect ratio of Omegas 3, 6 and 9.
So from a healthy living standpoint, it’s a great addition to your shopping list!
CBD – Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil – The “Motherload” of…
This is where you can get a motherload of CBD!
CBD oil is extracted from a phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) flowering strain of the industrial hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa) known as PCR Hemp oil.
NEWYOU only uses PCR Hemp. Why? Because:
- It’s extremely high in Cannabidiol,
- It contains NO negligible amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), and
- These strains of plants also have a very high concentration of CBD.
Cannabis Sativa (PCR Hemp) does NOT “bud” like its high THC counterpart, Cannabis Indica. Cultivators do not grow PCR Hemp to produce buds, so it lacks the primary component that forms the marijuana high. Instead, they grow it in compliance with the Farm Bill Act to produce higher concentrations of Cannabidiol Oil.
CBD oil can then be mixed with hemp seed oil, MCT, avocado or other types of carrier oils, to activate further bioavailability and digestion. CBD oil-containing products come in many different forms: tinctures, capsules, salves, serums, food and beverages.
4 KEY Components You’ll Want to be Familiar With When Talking About CBD Oil:
1) Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil retains all the original concentrations of cannabinoids, essential oils and terpenes as found in Nature. Full-Spectrum CBD Oil has some filtration and distillation to remove undesirable components… It’s as close to raw as you can get.
2) CBD Isolate
The most pure form of CBD is Isolate. The purification process removes all the ancillary terpenes and other phytocannabinoids and isolates CBD into solid crystals that are colorless, tasteless and odorless.
NEWYOU goes beyond standard CBD Isolate by using a Nano-Amplified™ technology to reduce the CBD isolate particle size into nano-size water molecules, making our CannaBD™ not only water soluble, but more bioavailable and potent than competing products on the market.
3) Full-Spectrum vs CBD Isolate: What’s the Difference?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of the many exogenous Cannabinoids found in Cannabis Sativa or Industrial Hemp. There are hundreds of other cannabinoids, phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in Hemp; and when you select a Full-Spectrum version you are getting all these beneficial compounds in the same ratios as God intended.
Experts Believe a Full-Spectrum Version Provides an “Entourage Effect”
Simply, this effect occurs when all the components of the hemp plant work synergistically together to multiply, enhance and activate each other, thus increasing the health benefits and improving the functioning of your Endocannabinoid System.
Full-Spectrum oils tend to cost more than their CBD isolate counterparts as they contain all the plant compounds. NEWYOU offers a Full-Spectrum Canna-Active product called CB2 Plus.
CBD Isolate is Just That—The Isolated CBD Compound
While CBD from Cannabis Sativa or Industrial Hemp, may have some negligible amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), when CBD is isolated any and all trace amounts are removed, as well as other ancillary plant materials, giving you the “purest” form of CBD available!
Isolating CBD Yields Higher Concentrations of CBD Using Smaller Amounts
Many CBD enthusiasts and health professionals believe CBD isolates amplify the healing properties of the Cannabinoid. That’s why NEWYOU uses CBD isolates in many of our products.
4) Cannabis Oil
When you hear the words “Medical Marijuana” this is where cannabis oil comes into play. Cannabis oil is extracted from the Marijuana plant called Cannabis Indica. It contains high levels of THC or Tetrahydrocannabinols, the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological or “psychoactive” effects. This type of oil also has very low levels of CBD.
Cannabis oil is regulated in most states, either as medical marijuana or recreational marijuana.
The Bottom Line…
Just remember Hemp is not “Marijuana” and Hemp Seed Oil and CBD oil come in many shapes and forms.
So be an educated consumer and enjoy the MANY wellness benefits that hemp and CBD have to offer… Your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) will thank you!
And if you’re looking for the best Full-Spectrum CBD Oil on the market that will give you all the many benefits of the Hemp Plant and more, there’s no need to look further than NEWYOU’s CB2 Plus, The Gold Standard of CBD Oils!
