What is the difference between CBD oil, cannabis oil, and hemp seed oil?
In searching for a suitable hemp oil, we would like to give the many interested parties a practical orientation for the terms such as CBD oil, cannabis oil, and hemp seed oil. We will now show you what the main differences are and which oil is suitable for which purpose. In addition, we provide insight into how it is extracted, applied, and used by other branches of the market.
Why CBD oil from Oilseed Works is better than that from others?
At Oilseed Works, the products’ effectiveness and the satisfaction of its customers are always set as a normative goal. For this purpose, we would like to enrich the users’ taste experience and thus also open a wider acceptance of CBD oil in the market. By adding flavors, ensuring effective CBD (including decarboxylation), and selected vitamins, we can create a varied and distinctive way for our customers to use CBD. These are evident characteristics of Oilseed Works and the reason for its great popularity.
What is CBD oil?
The active ingredient cannabidiol (CBD ) has gained a great deal of popularity and application at breakneck speed. Its use in the health, nutritional supplement, and medical cannabis industries, is steadily increasing and forming new discoveries. CBD exists alongside THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) as the second most abundant active ingredient in the cannabis plant.
Cannabidiol provides the user with much of the hemp plant’s positive effects, without the undesirable psychoactive effects or side effects of conventional cannabis use. CBD also counteracts the intoxicating effects of THC and can even alleviate its side effects in case of overdose. Primarily, the hemp flowers and leaves from female commercial hemp are used to extract CBD to increase the yield of the precious CBD content and keep the THC content below 0.2%.
The valuable ingredient CBD is currently extracted in industrial production by the gentle and efficient CO2 extraction process. Under high pressure, the compressed, so-called “supercritical CO2″ (carbon dioxide)” dissolves the desired substances from the plant parts of the hemp. The pressure within the process is lowered in a further step and the CO2 releases the extracts obtained. In this way, the natural ingredients of the plant are preserved, and the CO2 escapes completely. Now the extracted substances are still “decarboxylated,” which means that the substances are heated to a temperature of approx. 135°C for a certain period of time (usually 30-45 min.). This step serves, among other things, to convert CBDA (Cannabidiol Acid) to CBD – the active and potentially more potent form of the cannabinoid. This usually occurs to a degree of almost 95%. This allows the substances to develop their full effect during further use and later blending.
Of course, in CBD oil, you will also find terpenes and flavonoids, the ingredients that give the hemp plant its distinctive scent and which are also said to have remarkable properties to support the immune system. For the further enrichment of CBD oil, hemp seed oil, olive oil, or even coconut oil (caprylic/capric triglyceride) is often used. The coconut oil offers the advantage that the antioxidants and the active ingredients can be enclosed and transported directly to the active area without suffering oxidative losses during ingestion. The active ingredient CBD is previously absorbed through the oral mucosa and is then also detectable in the blood plasma after about 15 minutes (bioavailability of CBD through oral ingestion). Hemp seed or olive oil may be perceived as unpleasant by many users due to their tart taste and scratchy effect on the throat. Therefore, Oilseed Works uses coconut oil as a tasteless carrier for the CBD.
Our used coconut oil is also called MCT oil (medium-chain triglycerides) and has a high concentration of C8 and C10 fatty acids, which offer excellent weight reduction properties. This also allows Oilseed Works to add the peach flavor, thus ensuring an even much better experience when using CBD oil.
The treatments and uses of CBD oil or CBD are broad and wide-ranging. Unfortunately, from a legal perspective, we are not allowed to name any diseases or symptoms.
CBD is, therefore, one of the most promising active ingredients of the hemp plant, and its further applications are still being researched. It can be stated that CBD is already able to do a lot and that there will be many positive things to report in the future.
