Let's Clarify

We know there is a lot of confusion about Cannabis Sativa Oil, Hemp Oil, CBD and THC. So let's sort it out:


Hemp Oil

Our products contain organic Hemp Seed Oil (INCI label name Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil).   Hemp Seed Oil is made by cold pressing only the seeds from the Cannabis plant.  The seeds contain no THC and perhaps incidental trace amounts of Cannabidiols (CBD).  CBD oil is made from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of hemp, which contain high levels of cannabidiols and not from its seeds like Hemp Seed Oil.   Further, CBD oil is processed from plant strains that contain very low amounts of THC, the psycho-active component of the cannabis plant, and higher amounts of CBD.


Hemp Seed Oil is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid, which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory, reducing skin irritation.   The oil also moderate oil production, as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles.


Hemp Seed Oil is also rich in Vitamin E phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.


CBD oil difference info here:

CBD oil is created via an extraction process.  The final product in its purest form is actual a crystal powder.   This isolate is then reconstituted in oil (sometimes including hemp seed oil).   It is also extracted in oil that contains other parts of the plant (other cannabinoids, e.g. CBN and terpenes).   This CBD oil is referred to as “full spectrum” as it contains all the other potential beneficial components of the plant. 


Since CBD oil is concentrated in production and reconstituted in oil, the actual CBD content can vary significantly depending on dilution.   This is why you see varying CBD mg counts on the labels of CBD products. 


Products containing CBD oil are often promoted for pain relief, reducing anxiety and depression, aiding in sleep, and even reducing the side effects of cancer treatment, like nausea and vomiting.
