Hemp Oil Vs CBD Oil – What’s the Difference?
There are many differences between CBD oils and hemp oil when it comes to using it as a dietary supplement. Let’s start by understanding that we are looking at a dietary supplement because the health benefits are the same. If you have read any of my articles by this time, you should already be familiar with the health benefits of hemp seed, oil and hemp seeds and their anti-aging properties. Here we will take a brief look at why they work so well individually and together for maximum health benefits. And also look at some of the common problems found with CBD oils such as headaches, seizures, anxiety and constipation.
The main difference between hemp oil vs CBD oil is that CBD has very little CBD content at all. Hemp oil is extracted from the fresh leaves, stems and seeds of a mature hemp plant by a process called cold pressing. CBD on the other hand is obtained by heating the essential fatty acids in the plant, however not much heat is used. The result is a lipid emulsion that produces the beneficial effects of both CBD and THC, without the psychoactive side effects of THC. Therefore, CBD works as an anti-psychotic just like THC and is far less harmful than the latter.
Many people suffer from conditions such as insomnia, depression and anxiety which can make taking a CBD derivative such as hemp oil very appealing. One common problem with CBD derivatives however, is that they do not go through the normal medical procedures needed to be prescribed by a doctor. For example, if you want to get your CBD prescription from your doctor, you will have to fill out the appropriate forms, discuss your medical history and talk to your pharmacist about the exact dosage you should take. In fact, not many doctors will actually prescribe it because they do not feel comfortable prescribing it or because they do not believe in its effectiveness. These feelings are entirely fair if you are only interested in using it for short-term relief and not planning on doing any serious harm to yourself.
In contrast, when you use hemp oil or CBD derivative, you will be able to discuss your health history, talk about the specific symptoms you are experiencing and discuss the dosage that will be recommended to you. However, it is also important to note that just because CBD does not go through the same medical procedures as THC does not mean that it is any safer. In fact, a recent study done by the University of Florida demonstrated that CBD may actually increase the risk of developing schizophrenia – which is a disease with symptoms similar to those of depression and anxiety! If you feel that you need something more stable and long lasting than short term, prescription drugs and therapy may be your best options.
What is hemp oil? Hemp oil is an extract from the top of the marijuana plant that has a low concentration of THC, but high concentration of CBD and other important compounds that work as natural painkillers, mood enhancers, sedatives and anti-anxiety agents. To get the most out of this oil, it is recommended to take it in capsule form. However, you can also find hemp oil in tinctures and oil that can be applied directly to the skin. The advantage of using this oil compared to other pharmaceuticals is the fact that you can easily find it at your local supermarket and it is affordable to try out.
Both hemp oil and CBD oils are excellent dietary supplements that can help maintain a natural balance in your body. However, there is a difference between them when it comes to how they affect your body and achieve mental peace. Although CBD is better known to bring relief to those who suffer from epilepsy, the most popular use of CBD is in cold and cough remedies because it produces fast results and instant symptom relief. Hemp Oil, on the other hand, is used by many people around the world as a natural alternative for anxiety and depression treatment, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome and muscle spasms due to rheumatoid arthritis. But what really sets hemp oil and CBD oils apart is that they are able to bring about a natural psychological balance that is necessary if you want to achieve your goals.
